Gay YouTuber becomes mayor of Hell, Michigan, bans straight people from town

Gay YouTube comedian Elijah Daniel embarked on a short political career when he became mayor of Hell, Michigan and then was impeached a few hours later for banning straight people from the town.

Daniel, 23, kicked off his aspirations with a simple tweet musing how far he could make it in politics.

He told The Huffington Post he discovered that Hell, Michigan would swear someone in as mayor for just $100. Daniel took the opportunity and found himself the mayor of the small town.

Daniel’s first order of business was to ban straight people from the town. He told The Huffington Post a certain political figure’s ban was his inspiration.

“My ban is a copy-and-paste of Trump’s Muslim ban, but with heterosexuals instead,” Daniel says.

“Growing up, I was always told that homosexuals would go to Hell,” Daniel’s proclamation reads. “Now the heterosexuals are trying to take that from us too.”

“I am establishing new vetting measures to keep radical heterosexuals out of our town,” Daniel continued. “We want to ensure that we are not admitting into our town the very heterosexual threats we are fighting against. The straights coming into our town procreating, having more straight children to take our rightfully gay jobs. We only want to admit those into our town who will support our town and love deeply our people. I currently feel as if it would just be safer to ban all heterosexuality until we can access the situation further and build a strategy to resolve our problem.”

Daniel was willing to allow heterosexuals currently residing in Hell to stay for a price. Straight people would have to pay $84,000 as a “reproductive precautionary deposit, which will be returned after one year of abstinence from any heterosexual activities.”

He also offered a “heterosexual reparative therapy program” for straight people to “denounce their heterosexuality” and “become gay like the rest of the town.”

Any heterosexuals who didn’t participate in the program would be required to meet in the town center at 5:30 a.m. every day to be publicly “straight-shamed” wearing a scarlet “H” and cargo shorts.

Daniel’s mayoral office run was short-lived. Following his mayoral proclamation, Daniel was impeached.

He had no hard feelings about his removal from office and encouraged Trump to try it.

Now, Daniel has a travel destination in mind for the president.

“It’s a great place to visit,” Daniel told The Huffington Post. “Donald Trump should go to Hell anytime.”
