Ulf Poschardt - More Gay Quote

Die Welt Editor Calls For Germany to be ‘More Gay’ to Combat Trump

By Stephen Fuchs on

Germany’s conservative newspaper Die Welt has definitely stirred up some controversy when the paper’s editor, Ulf Poschardt, told readers to fight against Trump’s policies by being “more gay” before having to retract the statement with another that some could say made the issue worse.

Poschardt’s original statement read: “We must defend ourselves against Donald Trump and become more courageous, more industrious, more innovative, freer, more open, more gay, more multicultural.”

Shortly after, Die Welt made an attempt to scale back the editor’s original statement by replacing “more gay” with “more creative”, but not before the quote went viral.

It is quite possible that the blatant replacement, and the choice of swapping gay with creative, is only adding fuel to the fire, but really, we can all use a bit of creative gayness in our lives.
