Trump Supporters Have Discovered The DUP And It’s Just The Absolute Worst
Theresa May said she plans to work with the anti-gay and anti-abortion DUP, and America's far-right trolls are thrilled.
Theresa May, the Conservative prime minister who once said Tories should stop being the "nasty party", announced on Friday that she plans to govern by working with Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Party following her failure to win a majority in the UK election.
May's statement sparked fury, as the DUP is known for an aggressively socially conservative agenda, and has fiercely opposed LGBT rights, including blocking votes on same-sex marriage in Northern Ireland, and been stringently against abortion rights – even in the case of rape. Some members have also supported creationism and denied climate change.
News of a possible coalition between DUP and the Conservatives lit up 4chan's /pol/ messageboard Friday morning.
