You have to admire the ignorance of the poor young (and very probable) Liberal) Mr. Richardson. I don’t think I am mistaken when I say Germany is the second most important diplomatic post in Europe (London being first) and for many years when we still had two Germanies, the embassy was in Bonn and it was the diplomatic trenches of the Cold War.
This is the Embassy in Berlin, located one door down from the Brandergurg Gate. I might be old-fashioned and with lack of sophistication, but somehow it does not look like a ballroom to celebrate weddings, Quinceañeras and Bar Mitzvas .
So, if you suffer from Trump Derangement Syndrome, you can be both dismissive of an important diplomatic post and denigrate Gay People that did not come out of the proper Left Wing Closet.
