If republican had their way...

If it were up to republicans, we would also have this in the USA.

Chechnya has opened concentration camps for gay men

Gay men arrested in a ‘purge’ in the Russian region of Chechnya are being held in concentration camp-style prisons, reports have alleged.

Early reports emerged earlier this month that gay people are being targeted in the region, which is part of Russia but has substantial autonomy.

Russian newspapers and human rights groups report that more than 100 gay men have been detained “in connection with their non-traditional sexual orientation, or suspicion of such” as part of a purge. Several people were also reportedly feared dead following violent raids.

In a chilling response, a Chechen government spokesperson denied that there are any gay people to detain, insisting that “you can’t detain and harass someone who doesn’t exist in the republic”. The Kremlin denied any knowledge of a purge.
But reports have since emerged that the men arrested are being kept in horrific concentration camp prisons, where violent abuse and torture is common.

This is in history because the Nazis did the same thing.

I think economic /Libertarian Conservatives couldn't​ care less, other than strengthening alliances with social /religious Conservatives. Therein lies the hazard.

Afaik, that demographic is appalled by Saudi social opression. One reason they favor renewable energy Independence is to avoid financing despotic petro suppliers like them.
