The invasion of the drag queens

Sometimes you wake up and wonder, “Am I in the correct century?” “Am I in the right country?” You look around and ask yourself, “How in the world did all this come about?!” Something that simply did not exist just a few short years ago now seems ubiquitous.

Overnight a massive and radical social experiment has transpired, and most folks are simply left gobsmacked. The speed and pervasiveness are just mind-boggling. An obvious case in point is the by now routine practice of having drag queens coming into schools and libraries to read to children. Hardly anyone had heard of this happening just a few years ago. But now we see it happening everywhere.

So what gives? Well, the big picture answer is this. The sexual militants have long known that to capture a culture they must first capture the children. This is cultural Marxism 101. As Lenin once proudly exclaimed, “Give me just one generation of youth, and I’ll transform the whole world.”

So targeting our kids has always been part of the radical left’s game plan. And it sure is a major part of the sexual revolutionaries’ playbook. Children most certainly are in the crosshairs of the activists.

So this new trend with drags and kids is fully understandable from the viewpoint of the militants. It is all part of the plan. And it is all going along swimmingly. While so much of this is taking place overseas, Australia is not immune from all this. Not long ago we had a case of this in Wollongong, NSW.

I know a bit about it because a concerned parent called me to share her concerns. One activist journalist, who prefers making editorial comments instead of simply reporting the news, said this about the event: “the seemingly harmless event has raised the ire of hundreds on social media”.

They are telling these extremely concerned parents that they should just butt out because this is no big deal. Um, no – targeting our children and seeking to push adult sexuality on innocent and vulnerable children is not just harmless fun. It is pernicious and deliberate activism that should not be promoted with taxpayer dollars.

Indeed, one simply has to type the name of this drag into a search engine and look at what comes up. Various pages, including Facebook pages, show us just how perverse and raunchy this guy really is. If he wants to push all this on other adults that is one thing, but he should not be targeting our children with his adults-only lifestyle.

If these militants want to promote their lifestyle, they should do it on their own time and with their own money, and not make parents who oppose such activism subsidise it with their hard-earned tax dollars. But plenty of our “public servants” have been pushing all this.

The library’s manager fully supported it and said they should cater to all groups. But as one woman told me who was part of a peaceful protest there, ‘What if we tried to have a Christian reading event take place there? Would they allow that to take place as part of their push for diversity? Somehow I don’t really think so!’

Quite right. But in America, things are really ratcheting up. Consider this recent news item:

A Baptist pastor was arrested on Saturday after refusing to move across the street from the Spokane, Washington Public Library while exercising his free speech against a “Drag Queen Story Hour.” The event had a significant militaristic police presence, including camouflaged snipers positioned atop the roof to oversee the large crowd that stood both for and against the men dressed like women reading stories to children….

He was soon taken into custody and charged with obstructing the police, or as reports state, “trying to enter the non-designated protest area.” Yaghtin has since been released. According to The Spokesman-Review, an estimated 40 police officers were stationed outside of the library.

Hopefully, there is some glimmer of hope here. For example, I recently penned a piece on all this and it garnered over a thousand social media shares in just 20 hours. I guess I am not the only one who is utterly sick and tired of this war on children.

A former homosexual has recently penned a piece on the Drag Queen Story Hour (DQSH). A few of his words are worth closing this article with:

Let’s be blunt. The goal of DQSH is to make children comfortable with LGBTQ ideology and behaviours. It seeks to normalise cross-dressing homosexual men in garish make-up and provocative women’s clothing who seem obsessed with reading gay and transgender themed books to very young children. Many of these men lead bizarre lives as “adult” sex entertainers…

The challenge that mainstream society faces with DQSH is this: remaining silent will inevitably continue to lead to harmful indoctrination. Those kids who are lured into the transgender lifestyle could even end up resorting to the surgical mutilation of a full transition and years of tortured regret…

If we roll over and remain silent in the rising storm then we wittingly permit the gross abuse of children, masked as educational care – and our inaction authorises drag queens to hand out pink stickers to children that read: “Drag queen in training.”
