Fox News host’s insane anti-LGBT screed: Activists are trying to make kids transgender by ‘eliminating gays’

Published

on

Fox News host Greg Gutfeld went on a lengthy deep-dive into what he claims are the motivations of LGBT activists, falsely accusing them of trying to increase the number of transgender children by “eliminating gays.”

There is exactly zero truth to Gutfeld’s claims, which he made on Fox News’ “The Five” on Monday, as Media Maters reports.

In his screed Gutfeld uses the language of the far right, like “gender confusion,” while suggesting gay men and boys are “feminine.”

Gutfeld also seems to suggest that gay men are programed to be gay.

And he also makes the false assumption that all transgender people are heterosexual.

In short, Gutfeld has literally no idea what he’s talking about, but he is successful as spreading false tropes to the Fox News audience.

Here’s the full transcript and video, via Media Matters.

“There are young children, when they express gender confusion, the push among these same activists is to transition these confused children at a young age to the hetero sex, meaning if you have a young boy with feminine qualities you need to transition that person into a female so that person would then become straight,” Gutfeld tells the Fox News audience. “What you are effectively doing is you are eliminating gays because experts will tell you a young boy with feminine traits might just grow up to be a healthy gay man who lives a long life.”

There is a massive amount of stereotyping in those remarks.

“Instead you are going to push him in a direction that requires decades of drugs, decades of therapy and possibly surgery and higher rates of depression and suicide,” he continues. “So the left, interestingly enough, abhorred those organizations like Exodus, remember Exodus? That would take gay people and try to deprogram them. They hated them and probably for good reason. Where are they in this destructive practice of plucking confused kids who may grow out of a phase or may end up becoming gay or lesbian and saying no, it’s better for them to become a transgender female or male, knowing that this could end up with years and years of pain and suffering?”

Again, false.

“Sports and childhood are being affected by what is an intense political activism. And it scares the crap out of people. It’s scaring the crap out of liberals more than anybody because gays and lesbians are the ones that are getting hit probably the hardest on this.”

Presiding House Dem bangs gavel and quits after GOP throws a fit over Pelosi calling Trump’s tweet racist

Published

on

A House Speaker's words have not been taken down from the record since 1984, but Tuesday, Republicans waged a war against Speaker Nancy Pelosi for having the temerity to call President Donald Trump's recent tweets racist.

Trump told four Congresswomen of color to go back to the country they came from. Democrats sought to pass a resolution saying that the tweets were "disgusting, disparaging and racist," but Republicans said doing so violates House rules.

After an hour of discussion between the two parties, a frustrated Congressman Rev. Emanuel Cleaver (D-MO), acting as the chiar, responded.

GOP strategist Tara Setmayer says Republicans will defend Trump until he uses the N-word

Published

Republican strategist Tara Setmayer told a CNN panel that the only way the GOP is going to be willing to stand up to President Donald Trump is if he uses the N-word.

In a panel discussion with CNN's Jake Tapper, Setmayer said that the Republicans in office will bend over backward trying to defend everything the president says and does.

"I think we’re at the point where I think anything short of the N-word they will make excuses for because at that point there is really no question about it, right?" she said. "So, it is obvious to everyone else, it is amazing to me how many of the Republicans are going out there and I said this yesterday, try to white-splain to people of color what racism is and what it feels like to deal with that every single day."

The media’s ‘Made in America’ problem: Trump creates racist controversy — and gets free campaign coverage

Published

on

Let’s presume, however depressing that notion may be, that mainstream news organizations will continue to fumble the ball when it comes to directly calling blatantly racist statements coming out of Donald Trump’s mouth what they are, which is racist.

Let’s also presume that in the fallout of such incidents like Trump’s racist tweets on Sunday, media organizations adopt predictable stances. Most struggle to maintain a sense of equanimity and fairness when it comes to calling out Trump’s racism. Fox amplifies it.
