As the Republican Party of Iowa continues to capitulate more and more to the radical, extremist LGBTQ agenda, the Republican National Committee isn’t much different.

RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel, the niece of Sen. Mitt Romney, tweeted support of Pride Month on June 2.

“Happy #PrideMonth! GOP is proud to have doubled our LGBTQ support over the last 4 years, and we will continue to grow our big tent by supporting measures that promote fairness and balance protections for LGBTQ Americans and those with deeply held religious beliefs.”

McDaniel’s tweet was criticized by Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council.

“It wasn’t the smartest thing RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel has ever done,” he wrote. “At a time when dozens of states are racing to stop LGBT extremism, the last thing any political strategist would advise is pitting yourself against them. And yet, that’s exactly what McDaniel did on Wednesday.”

Perkins also noted just how out-of-touch the Party’s leadership seems to be with the base on the issue.

“If McDaniel was looking for a way to end her party’s record-breaking fundraising, she nailed it. Right now, there are few things she — or any Republican — could have said that would have been more tone-deaf and offensive than applauding the woke agenda her base is trying to combat.”
