Reality star Michelle Duggar’s latest delivery: Robocall describing trans people as ‘child predators’

Published

on

Reality television star Michelle Duggar warned residents in Fayetteville, Arkansas that a measure banning discrimination against LGBT individuals would allow men with “child predator convictions that claim they are female to have a legal right to enter private areas that are reserved for women and girls,” the Washington Post reports.

Duggar, one of the stars of TLC’s 19 Kids and Counting, was calling in reference to the Fayetteville City Council’s discussion of a civil rights ordinance that would ban discrimination against members of the LGBT community.

According to Duggar, “the Fayetteville City Council is voting on an ordinance this Tuesday night that would allow men — yes I said men — to use womens and girls restrooms, locker rooms, showers, sleeping areas and other areas that are designated for females only.”

“I don’t believe the citizens of Fayetteville would want males with past child predator convictions that claim they are female to have a legal right to enter private areas that are reserved for women and girls,” she continued. “I doubt that Fayetteville parents would stand for a law that would endanger their daughters or allow them to be traumatized by a man joining them in their private space.”

The call claimed to be funded by a local group called Free Fayetteville, whose official website claims to be about “empowering liberty in our hometown.” But the only link on that site leads to a post on the blog of the Family Council, a state-wide group that promotes “traditional family values.”

Despite the reality star’s plea, the measure passed the City Council by a 6-2 margin after hours of debate on Tuesday night and early Wednesday morning.

The vote was finally taken at 3:20 a.m. on Wednesday morning, after all parties who wanted to speak were given time to present their piece.

Published

on

Republican strategist Rick Wilson has penned a scathing column for the Daily Beast in which he dismantles President Donald Trump for telling four Democratic women of color to "go back" to their countries of origin, even though three of them were born in the United States.

Wilson begins his column by arguing that Trump has shown what happens when someone who is "devoted to political and racial arson" and is "beyond shame, reason, and dignity" gets elected to the most powerful office in the United States.

Trump’s team blowing off racist furor because they know the GOP is afraid to do anything about it: report

Published

on

According to a report at the Daily Beast, officials running Donald Trump's re-election campaign are keeping their heads down and plowing ahead with their work as the country is consumed with the president's burst of racist comments because they believe it will blow over.

The reason? Because Republicans will refuse to condemn the president -- which is being borne out in real-time -- and it's just another day at the office where the president wildly tweets outrageous comments that are superseded by new comments that consume the public's attention.

Melania’s ‘shameful’ complicity in Trump’s agenda slammed by women activists from her home country

Published

on

Melania Trump has been known for very little in her own right. Aside from her widely-panned "Be Best" anti-cyberbullying initiative, she is mostly notable only as a staunch defender of Trump's agenda and behavior, backing him up on everything from Birtherism to abuse of migrant children.

It's a major disappointment to women's activists in her native country of Slovenia, reports The Daily Beast. Several of them were hoping that Melania would be a strong voice on the world stage in her own right, and are frustrated that she has acted as nothing more than a mouthpiece for the president.
