‘Family values’ activist: Parents who accept trans kids are committing ‘the ultimate act of child abuse’

Published

on

A conservative Christian activist said parents who do not force their transgender children to conform to their biological gender norms are abusive.

Andrea Lafferty, of the Traditional Values Coalition, traveled to Bentonville, Arkansas, where she tried to scare school board members out of supporting proposed protections for LGBT employees by claiming they would be “doing the bidding of the Obama administration” if they voted for the measure — which ultimately failed.

The activist called the “Sandy Rios in the Morning” program Monday from Arkansas to continue her attacks, saying the measure would have “put psychologically unhealthy teachers in the classroom,” reported Right Wing Watch.

Lafferty and Rios agreed that LGBT students were at higher risk for suicide, but they ignored whether their own hateful activism might play any possible role in making those teens “psychologically unhealthy and unstable.”

The “family values” activist attacked federal researchers who are studying whether those attitudes make LGBT students more vulnerable to self-harm and instead encouraged parents to reject their own LGBT children.

“The federal government is funding a study of transgendered [sic] kids, but it’s more to promote it,” Lafferty said. “To me, it’s the ultimate act of child abuse to not try and really help your child through this and to become whole but they are psychologically unhealthy.”

Lafferty earlier this year promoted the inaccurate claim that a Virginia school district, which had updated its nondiscrimination policy to include transgender people, instituted a mandatory curriculum on oral and anal sex, bestiality and Bill Clinton’s sexual habits.

President Donald Trump's Michigan supporters are abandoning their 2016 pick for Vice President Joe Biden as the election comes closer.

In a series of interviews on MSNBC Sunday, revisited voters they'd met earlier in the election cycle in Kent County.

Katey Morse and her husband were both working full time, and their kids were in school back in March, but things quickly changed as the coronavirus spread throughout the country. Luckily, she and her husband didn't lose their jobs, but they, like many parents, are struggling to do virtual school for their kids.

"I'm turning into more of an angry person than I've ever been in my life," she said about how she feels politically, noting that it makes her sad. "I've just got a countdown to November now, and I'm hoping we'll wake up from this nightmare we're in."

Trump abusing the intelligence community in an attempt to keep them quiet about Russia election hacks: Conservative

Published

on

The New York Times Magazine piece outlining President Donald Trump's battles with the U.S. intelligence community revealed that Russia is continuing to wage its own cyberwar against the world. According to conservative Washington Post columnist Max Boot, the devastating report explained the extent to which the president is ignoring the threats to the 2020 election.

“The options faced by the intelligence community during Trump’s presidency have been stark: avoid infuriating the president but compromise the agencies’ ostensible independence, or assert that independence and find yourself replaced with a more sycophantic alternative," wrote Robert Draper in his lengthy investigation into Trump's efforts to politicize international intelligence. According to Boot, the most shocking part of the investigation was that the experts in the intelligence community have been banned from speaking honestly about the Russian attacks.

‘Incompetent moron’ Chuck Todd ripped for letting Trump official claim Democrats want more COVID-19 deaths

Published

on

"Meet the Press" host Chuck Todd is under fire -- once again -- after letting Donald Trump's trade adviser Peter Navarro claim on NBC that Democrats want more Americans to die during the coronavirus pandemic to boost their chances at the polls in November.

Instead of pushing back the NBC host known for his lack of follow-up questions let the comment slide by responding, "I take your point."

Todd's failure to call out the Trump aide for what one Twitter commenter called a "disgusting" comment led to an avalanche of criticism for the MBC political director who recently saw his weekday show cut back to make room for more commentary by colleague Nicolle Wallace.
