Right-wing politicians have rallied around the LGBTQ community for decades. Really, who made Nazi coming?

On a sunny late Saturday afternoon, right-wing groups descended on First Christian Church in Katy, Texas, a suburb west of Houston. Groups like the Proud Boys, the Patriot Front and Protect Texas Kids have shown extreme outrage at the church holding a drag queen bingo fundraiser to benefit Transparent Closet, a free clothing store for underprivileged transgender youth. Several groups of counter-protesters, such as the Screwston’s Anti-Fascist Committee, were also present. Tensions were high and many people, both among protesters and counter-protesters, were heavily armed.

Prior to the event, several right-wing parents expressed vocal dissatisfaction with the drag queens.

Grassroots parent groups have vowed to protest the event, which they say is harmful to children.

Rebecca Clark, executive director of Fort Bend County Citizens Defending Freedom, said parents were outraged that the church planned to feature a “satanic” who had conspired against a school.

“We are done with tolerating the exploitation and sexualization of our children in this country,” Clark told The Epoch Times via text message.

Sarah Feigleson, a Katy resident and Fort Bend County education officer at the CCDF, wrote in a post that parents need to wake up.

“Drag queens and kids don’t mix,” she wrote. “These events take place in your garden. Stand up and do a respectful heckling.

Protect Texas Kids, an anti-LGBTQ group founded by self-proclaimed “Christian fascist” Kelly Neidert, was part of the protest; the group, which is the brainchild of the leader of the Young Conservatives of Texas (YCT) at the University of North Texas, wished “take a stand to protect children from the toxic and indoctrinating agenda of the left”. (This, while 66% of crisis calls to Rainbow Youth Project USA came from Texas, according to the Los Angeles Blade.)

Protect Texas Kids held a Facebook event to protest the “’all ages’ drag bingo event”.

This “church” will host a disturbing dragster bingo show for kids, with booze and special ticket options for 18+. Our friends in Houston are organizing a protest and we will join them. These sexually explicit performances must stop taking place in front of children.

Although the “Discussion” section of the Facebook event was small, there were some notable, if not terrifying, comments made on the single post, such as “A pedo’s dream,”California migrants should be tagged so we know who’s who in that state,” and a bogus communist rule that reads, “Bribe the young, keep them away from religion. Get them interested in sex.

The First Katy Christian Church, a Disciples of Christ church, has a history of acceptance towards LGBTQ+ people, dating back to 1979; the church had actively provided support despite acts of hate speech and vandalism against the church. Reverend Heather Tolleson of First Christian Church acknowledges that “not everyone agrees with us”, but she also proudly states, “WWe did what we had to do to care for and provide a safe environment. Transparent Closet itself opened in late 2020.

“We’ve set it up as a boutique where you can find something really cool to try on and keep, like jewelry, makeup, and clothes — anything someone exploring or transitioning might need. “, said Tolleson. “The explicit intent is for teens and young adults to have a place to go and explore and get what they need.”

Despite hostility from right-wing hate groups on the streets and boiling anger from right-wing parents beforehand, the drag queen bingo fundraiser managed to sell out.

On the other side of the street, the counter-protesters had a different message.

“It’s nonsense, because drag itself is just a costume,” said one person supporting the event. “It’s no different from someone dressing up as a superhero at a comic book convention or someone putting on a Halloween costume.”

• Says he won’t deprive anyone of their rights as speculated
• End nepotism, Bishop tells voters
• LP candidate, others urge Nigerians to vote properly
• Ekpu urges voters to question politicians

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) yesterday urged politicians to avoid hate speech, refrain from using masquerades and refrain from using public facilities and religious centers during campaigns.

This also came as Bishop of the Diocese of Ibadan, Anglican Communion, the Rt. Rev. Joseph Akinfenwa urged Nigerians to eliminate nepotism and parochialism when voting for candidates.

They declared them during the first Stakeholder Summit organized by the Rural and Urban Stewardship Initiative for Sustainable Development (RUSISD) on the theme: “Inclusive Civic Education for Deepening the Democratic Process in Nigeria”, which s is held at Comfort Akinfenwa Hall, Molete, Ibadan.

The Administrative Secretary of the Oyo State Electoral Body, Biodun Onikate-Amosu, has urged Nigerians to cooperate with the commission to ensure a smooth, credible, fair and inclusive 2023 general election.

The Bishop of the Diocese of Ibadan, who is the organizer of the programme, said: “End with nepotism and partisan interests. If we want to bring about change, we must end nepotism and ethnicity.

ALSO, Labor Party (LP) gubernatorial candidate in Oyo State, Twafiq Akinwale, said the electorate must move away from the old ways of electing leaders and vote for a new set of leaders who will bring development.

For his part, the Dean of the Faculty of Economics and Management at the University of Ibadan (UI), Prof. Olanrewaju Olaniyan, urged Nigerians to be vigilant, saying voting bad candidates in 2023 will have serious consequences. consequences.

The keynote speaker said, “Brighten your eyes and vote for credible candidates. Make sure you vote for credible people in 2023. If you vote for the wrong candidates, you’re in the next four years. The consequence of voting wrongly is serious.

Meanwhile, as president of RUISSD, Ven. Adewale Sanda, said the organization would not give up working for a good nation, Ms. Chinyere Onuoha in her address stressed the need for journalists and security officers to be allowed to vote in the polls for the inclusiveness.

MEANWHILE, a columnist and co-founder of Newswatch magazine, Ray Ekpu, advised the electorate to grill politicians on what they would do differently to change the country’s narrative.

Ekpu, who also spoke as chairman of the event, said, “My message to Nigerians is to question the politicians. Ask them how they are going to do it and ask them how. There is a strong brain drain because Nigeria has not provided the environment for professionals to practice.

“Go to Lagos Teaching Hospital (LUTH), the doctors buy their equipment and when they treat patients, they take the equipment home. It is a federally owned hospital. It is a great shame and there is a huge workforce in Nigeria.

SCHENECTADY — Last week Jonathan Greenblatt, 51, was at the White House for a summit discussing the corrosive effects of hate-fueled violence on our democracy and public safety. On Wednesday, Greenblatt, CEO of the Anti-Defamation League and grandson of a Holocaust survivor, will be at Proctor’s GE Theater for a free event hosted by the Jewish Federation of Northeastern New York at 7:30 p.m. Greenblatt will discuss his book “It Could Happen Here”. He connected with The Daily Gazette ahead of the event. The following is an edited transcript of the conversation.

The Daily Gazette: Your visit to Schenectady is part of nationwide trips to discuss your book and the dangers of extremism and hate. Did you have any memorable interactions on the road?

Jonathan Greenblatt: I’ve traveled all over the country, and what’s remarkable is meeting people — in big cities and small towns — who identify as right-wing or left-wing, and their concern is the same: polarization alarm. They worry not only about anti-Semitism, but about all forms of hatred and the toxicity of our politics in public life. I hear about it from mums complaining about WhatsApp groups. I hear about it from people who complain about situations in the workplace. I hear about it from people who tell me “your book really resonated because I have this family member or friend I don’t talk to anymore because things are so polarized.” I finished the book in 2021, but started writing it before January 6. (Greenblatt began writing the book after the fatal shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue in 2018). I never would have guessed that I would see the day when people went wild in the Capitol.

CEO: What was going through your mind on January 6, especially that you were working on this project?

JJ: At the ADL, every day we focus on countering extremism and hate, so we were alarmed as January 6 approached. turned out to be much worse than we could have imagined. We were taken aback by the response from law enforcement, but also the level of preparedness seemed far from what we expected. So I was watching at that time, focused on what was going to happen to these lawmakers, and is that going to spark incidents in state capitols across the country? What do we have to do? And deep down inside, I was like, ‘it’s happening here’. This kind of validated the book’s thesis that the wheels can come off.

CEO: Do you think the nation as a whole is ready for the kind of conversations you have with people when you travel around the country?

JJ: I think we have no choice but to be ready. If we don’t address these issues, if we don’t study them, if we don’t address them and solve them, it’s like we’re not treating a condition that could metastasize into something deadly. I think the stakes are literally so high.

One of my conclusions in the book is that I don’t think democracy is a spectator sport. What I mean by that is that I think a lot of us believe that you vote or you don’t vote. It doesn’t really matter. One person will be elected and you can vote next time. There is a feeling among people that we take this for granted. Much like watching a game and your team loses, they can show up the next day. In baseball, we know there will be nine innings, 27 outs per team, and if they lose, guess what? It’s a 162-game season, so how bad could that be?

I think one of the lessons of January 6 or one of the lessons of Germany or Iran or what we see around the world is that democracy is not a spectator sport. Democracy does not have nine innings. The stakes are so much higher, which means that if we don’t lean in, if we don’t get on the court and play, there’s no natural law that things are going to go the way they do. always have. Our institutions are strong. We have nearly 250 years of constitutional democracy in this country that has endured so much because we’ve been through economic calamity, we’ve been through global conflict, we’ve been through civil war, we’ve been through political turmoil, we’ve been through upheaval social issues, and the country always bounces back and comes out stronger. However, we cannot say with certainty that there will be another match tomorrow if we do not ensure that we can keep this republic. The reality is that at some point, if this thing comes undone, everyone loses.

CEO: Would you say you are more optimistic than pessimistic, and if so, what continues to give you hope?

JJ: I have great hope because this country has bounced back again and again and again from extraordinary circumstances…
And then when I talk to young people, the amount of creativity, energy and passion is at its peak. The younger generation is more tolerant, they are more intuitive, there are a lot of things I am passionate about. We have real challenges ahead of us – I’m not going to hold back on that – but I think the opportunities are still incredibly plentiful if we can get through this moment.

CEO: The Anti-Defamation League makes a point of calling out leaders who have ties to known hate groups. (Earlier this month, Dave Bardascini, a member of the Broadalbin City Council, was one of five New York state local officials whom the Anti-Defamation League Center on Extremism identified as a current member or former member of an extremist anti-government group called the Oath Keepers.) Why is it important for the ADL to make such announcements?

JJ: This matters because many of these hate groups are undemocratic and marginalize people because of how they worship or who they love. It is deeply, deeply frightening.

CEO: Do you fear that some of this work infringes freedom of expression?

JJ: It is a civil rights organization. We have been fierce defenders of the First Amendment for over 100 years. Freedom of speech is not the freedom to incite violence against people… I think hate speech is the price to pay for the First Amendment. We don’t believe in censoring speech, but again, when someone is promoting ideas that could lead to violence, that’s a problem. This should not be considered protected speech.

CEO: What would you like to see happen in the next few years that would ensure the country is heading in the right direction?

JJ: Democracy protected at the ballot box. A peaceful transition of power in November in two years. I like to think that our work shines a light on these issues, because there is now, more than ever, national attention on these topics.

Between 2019 and 2020, more than two million Twitter posts about Jews or Israel were anti-Semitic, according to a study from the Institute for the Study of Contemporary Antisemitism (ISCA) at Indiana University.

In 2019, 849,253 tweets – 6.9% of all conversations about Jews on Twitter – were anti-Semitic. This proportion increased to 10.7% in 2020, which means that 1,531,912 anti-Semitic tweets were posted, 4,197 per day or one every 20 seconds, in conversations containing the word “Jews”.

The ISCA said the content was mostly related to conspiracy theories about Jewish world domination, the conflict in the Middle East and the Holocaust

“We need to do more research to identify the sources of anti-Semitic propaganda. Some comes from neo-Nazi groups, anti-Zionist organizations and Iranian-sponsored activities,” the institute said.

Denying the Jewish people the right to self-determination was also a common theme found by the ISCA in anti-Semitic conversations on Twitter about Jews and Israel. The words “Palestinian” and “apartheid” appeared frequently in conversations on Twitter.

The ISCA said cases of this content have gone from 2019 to 2020 “despite Twitter’s claims that they crack down on anti-Semitism and Holocaust denial.”

“Social media has become the biggest vehicle for anti-Semitic narratives, which can radicalize individuals and lead to violence, and push Jews out of these spaces,” the researchers explain in the report. “We plan to continue to increase the size of the dataset and the variety of its content so that it can serve as a gold standard for automated detection of anti-Semitic tweets… The results contribute to our understanding of the discourse of online hatred against Jews.

Abbott Elementary was the last series of shows that makes us feel good, reminds us why we love the mockumentary style, and brings us a cast of characters who love their jobs and want to be the best teachers they can be. It’s one of the hottest new comedies out there and so tonight at the Emmys, it’s no surprise it’s taking home awards for its casting! And Sheryl Lee Ralph won for her role as Barbara Howard on the show, a teacher whom Quinta Brunson’s Janine admires. And now Ralph has an Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series!

Ralph began his speech by singing Dianne Reeves’ “Endangered Species” and the power she has was so clear in the way the audience sat in love with her performance. And from there, she reminded us of all the power of our dreams. “To anyone who ever, ever had a dream and thought your dream wasn’t, couldn’t, wouldn’t come true, I’m here to tell you that’s what belief looks like, this is what effort looks like, and never, ever give up.

Ralph is the second black woman to win the award, the first being Jackée Harry who shared her support for Ralph’s win.

Barbara Howard deserves it

Ralph’s character on Abbott Elementary School is an older teacher who wants to do her best for her students, but also knows the limits of the school she works for and is a good match for Janine de Brunson who thinks she can change the lives of her classes and turns to Barbara for advice. In his speech, Ralph gave Brunson a shoutout, saying having her in his “corner” (along with her husband, kids and all of her friends who voted for her) helped her achieve this historic victory.

Much like the show itself, seeing Ralph win Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series was one of the feel-good moments of the night because she deserved it and so much more. I can’t wait to see what season 2 has in store for our favorite teachers and I just know that Sheryl Lee Ralph will continue to shine in Primary Abbott. Now, just with an Emmy Award under her belt.

A Mexican university has sued a recent psychology graduate after a group of professors raised concerns about his graduation speech defending family and the sanctity of life, which could cost him his license to practice.

The Autonomous University of Baja California received complaints against the student, Christian Cortez Pérez, and began formal proceedings to ban him from practicing psychology, the human rights group ADF International said on Friday. .

As the top of his class at the university’s School of Medicine and Psychology, Pérez earned the right to deliver the commencement address at his June 27 graduation ceremony, where he expressed his deep moral convictions regarding the state of the world today and the importance of family and the sanctity of life, among other issues.

Some students and professors vocally protested and walked out, but he continued and gave his graduation speech in full.

The professors then published a “manifesto”, calling his speech “hate speech”. They demanded that his college degree and professional license be withheld, that his merit award be withdrawn, and that psychological associations across Mexico be alerted to his actions.

“I exercised my basic right to free speech to speak to my classmates about what I believe to be the most pressing issues of our time,” Pérez said in response to the action. ‘university. “Now I risk losing my entire professional career because I expressed opinions with which some students and professors do not agree.”

In response to the lawsuits against him, Pérez filed a counterclaim to protect his legitimate interests, said ADF International, which supports him, adding that a judgment from the university is expected later this month.

In his opening speech, Pérez said: “Today we are immersed in a real anthropological struggle to redefine the human being, the human person, the man, through the implementation of ideologies and ways of thinking that always end up undermining dignity and freedom”.

He then quoted English writer and lay theologian GK Chesterton: “People don’t know what they’re doing; because they don’t know what they are destroying. Pérez added that “attacking life and family is self-destruction, it is an attack on civilization itself.” He then urged his peers to live in solidarity with each other, saying, “You must love; no one seeks the good of another if he does not love him.

Kristina Hjelkrem, ADF International’s legal counsel for Latin America, said Pérez “faces irreparable damage to his reputation and a ban on his professional practice, threatening everything he has worked for in his career.” simply because he exercised his basic human rights and expressed opinions shared by many.

“If the campaign to punish Christian is successful, it shows that anyone who dares to speak in public in Mexico is in danger,” Hjelkrem added. “This is a flagrant violation of international human rights law, reminiscent of dictatorships, not democracies.”

Pérez said he was “committed to obtaining justice not only for myself, but for all Mexicans interested in preserving the right to free expression.”

ADF International noted that students and faculty around the world are subject to “censorship campaigns, often accompanied by legal action, which threaten to cause serious damage to both their reputations and their careers.”

The original stars of The Lord of the Rings Peter Jackson film series come together to advocate for inclusivity amid racist backlash against show The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power. Some viewers have expressed displeasure with the casting of people of color for the series as they believe it goes against the source material created by author JRR Tolkien.

Elijah Wood, Billy Boyd and Dominic Monaghan have come together on social media to support the cast diversity of the Amazon Prime Video series.

“You are all welcome here,” reads the Twitter caption shared by Wood.

The trio of actors wear a t-shirt featuring the ears of Middle-earth creatures in a variety of skin tones. Wood and the other actors offered a link to buy the shirt they’re wearing in the virtual store. According to the item description, “50% of all proceeds will go to a charity (selected by Don’s community) that supports POC.”

Ismael Cruz Córdova, who plays the elven warrior Arondir in power ringsreplied to Wood’s tweet with the following message: “Lots of love.”

Cruz Córdova recently explained that he had to fight racist trolls on social media who only presented “pure and vicious hate speech” against him.

“I fought so hard for this role for this exact reason,” he recently told Esquire. “I felt I could carry this torch. I made sure my elf was the most elven, the most amazing, because I knew it was coming.

Sean Astin also expressed his support for diversity, adding in a tweet: “You are all welcome here”.

Editor:

“The government is working under the direction of the Democrats” (reading eagle, August 25) has no basis in reality. America has its highest inflation rate in 40 years. People are struggling to pay their bills, put food on their table or gas in their car, and now they have to pay other people’s student loans, even if they pay theirs or don’t have the means to go to university themselves. This is madness.

If this administration is doing so well, why is President Joe Biden’s approval so low? We have cut funding for the police and weakened our military, and now we are indoctrinating school children with gender identity, preferred pronouns, critical race theory, and hatred of the police and American history. Meanwhile, we lag behind other countries in terms of education.

We have open borders, with millions of unchecked illegal immigrants and tons of drugs pouring into our country. We have high crime rates with revolving doors for too many criminals. The FBI has been politicized and interfered in the last two US elections. With the raid on President Donald Trump’s home, the office is working on interference number three.

Democrats defend baby murder clinics and only want equal justice and free speech for themselves. Any thought or comment to the contrary is called hate speech.

The so-called Inflation Reduction Act is a bribe for young voters that will actually increase inflation.
To consider what the Democrats have accomplished as phenomenal is an illusion.

May God continue to bless America.

Comment

Wes Moore, the Democratic candidate for governor of Maryland, edged Dan Cox, his Republican opponent, by about 10 to 1, giving Moore a huge financial advantage 10 weeks from Election Day.

The latest campaign finance reports show Moore has taken in $1.8 million in the past two months and has $1.3 million to spend, while Cox has brought in $195,000 with a cash balance. around $130,000.

“This campaign has continued to show incredible momentum following a historic primary victory in July,” Moore’s campaign manager Ned Miller said in a statement. “It’s clear that Wes has built a coalition that can propel him to victory in November.”

In a statement, Cox downplayed his fundraising totals.

“Winning elections is not having a lot of money. It’s about having enough money,” Cox said, adding that his fundraising was not based on the might of “power-hungry politicians, Hollywood celebrities and business interests,” but with help “from hard-working students, single mothers, families, small businesses.”

Reports released Tuesday offer the first glimpse into the financial showdown between Moore, a bestselling author, former nonprofit chief and political newcomer who won a crowded Democratic primary, and Cox, a first state delegate and attorney who easily beat Governor Larry. Hogan’s protege, Kelly Schulz, for the Republican nomination.

They also highlight the uphill battle Cox faces in Maryland, a blue state where Democrats outnumber Republicans twice and where Cox’s biggest supporter, former President Donald Trump, is widely unpopular among the public. most voters.

Todd Eberly, professor of political science at St. Mary’s College, said Moore’s transport means he “will have more than enough to run a statewide campaign, with effective publicity.” Meanwhile, Cox, who won his first appeal to the Trump base in the state GOP by a wide margin, has yet to run to a wide range of voters, Eberly said.

“The real danger of course is that Moore has an advantage now that he can use his money to define Cox before Cox has a chance to define himself,” Eberly said.

During the primary, Cox’s candidacy was bolstered by ads touting him and paid for by the Democratic Governors Association, a political maneuver designed to improve the Democrats’ chances of victory in November by avoiding a clash with the more moderate Schulz. Hogan lambasted the DGA over the spending.

Since his victory, Cox has faced a splintered state Republican party, with some top Republican elected officials, concerned about the declining election, opting to stay out of the gubernatorial race. Hogan, the state’s token Republican Party leader, has described Cox as a “QAnon whackjob” and a “nut” and has more recently questioned his mental stability, and said he won’t approve of it. In response, Cox said the governor was “struggling to tell the truth.”

Cox has attempted to pivot his messaging since the July 19 primary. He deleted his account on Gab, a social media platform known as a haven for hate speech, and deleted parts of his campaign website that mentioned his efforts to oppose the certification of the 2020 presidential election, among others. Cox focuses on his opposition to pandemic control measures, crime in Baltimore and what he calls public school ‘indoctrination centers’ where students are ‘brainwashed’ about identity sexual and gender “behind the parents’ backs”.

Cox received no money from federal committees or candidate and slate accounts. Six contributors donated $6,000 – the limit for individual donations – including Gene Schaerr, an attorney who lives in Montgomery County and served in the White House as associate counsel to then President George HW Bush, and Schaerr’s wife, Martha, and Presidential Coalition LLC, which is led by Citizens United Chairman and Trump ally David Bossie.

Meanwhile, Democrats have rallied behind Moore, whose campaign focuses on “jobs, wages and wealth” and “leaving no one behind.” His haul includes nearly $40,000 from the campaign accounts of current and former state and local elected officials, including $6,000 each from House Appropriations Speaker Maggie McIntosh (D-Baltimore City), the former Baltimore City Comptroller Joan M. Pratt and Del. Kirill Reznik (D-Montgomery). He also received $6,000 from the federal campaign accounts of U.S. Rep. Anthony G. Brown (D-Md.) and Rep. Dutch Ruppersberger (D-Md.).

Some of the other top Moore supporters in the latest report include: Baltimore Orioles president John Angelos; Tarn Ashman, CEO of a Prince George’s County technology company; veteran lobbyist Bruce Bereano, an ardent supporter of Moore’s chief opponent, Comptroller Peter Franchot; and actor Samuel L. Jackson and his wife, LaTanya Richardson Jackson. They all donated $6,000 each.

Moore has raised more than $10.5 million since launching her campaign last year.
