The Sinking Filth Taking Place in June 2023

Periodically I use this column to highlight what I noticed in a given month thanks to the social contagion known as Leftism – a warped and wicked societal germ that poisons everyone and everything it touches. Leftism is destroying our nation in particular and Western Civilization in general. In taking stock of what happened in June, which for some strange reason this nation refers to as “Pride Month,” the peculiar celebrating of homosexuality and the strange, faddish sickness called Transgenderism for reasons that remain a mystery (why is being gay or Trans or Queer something to celebrate?) it is important to reflect on the meaning of the items I describe below which define the zeitgeist of the present moment. Here we go:

Trans Lunacy:

  • A 15-year-old girl was savagely attacked and beaten to a pulp in her high school bathroom by a young man pretending to be a girl. The beating actually took place last October, but now the mother is suing.
  • A man named Michael Horwitz (who imagines he is actually a female, Norah Horwitz) murdered his own father by stabbing him to death for not buying into the Trans lunacy. I’m sure Michael Horwitz will be much happier in prison.
  • Experts, calling such a trend Trantifa, warned of escalating violence coming from the Trans community.
  • Bud Light continued to show its true colors, and demonstrate it has not learned a single thing from their Dylan Mulvaney fiasco by sponsoring an “all ages” drag show party featuring men depicting BDSM sexual acts, or a nearly nude man being choked and whipped by another man in bondage gear. Children were exposed to this perversity.
  • As Target Stores’ finances tank due to their unconscionable acceptance of Trans madness and the subsequent alienating of their primary customer base – sane families – Trans radicals such as a Montana lawmaker who goes by the name Zooey Zephry (another man who pretends he is a woman) essentially warned Target not to betray their allegiance to the Trans community, no matter how much money Target loses. And the designer Target hired, Erik Carnell, who is an avowed Satanist, accused Target for setting a dangerous precedent by downplaying or relocating their LGBT products following public outrage. Meanwhile, Target backs a radicalized group of thugs that are bent on the demilitarization of the U.S. as well as shutting down Mt. Rushmore. Target shares continued to be downgraded.
  • The Biden White House held a special event featuring the Trans Flag in a dominant position over even the American Flag, and lots of Trans people, several of whom removed their shirts on the White House Lawn and took topless selfies with the White House as a backdrop. These included men who pretend they are women and have prosthetic breasts, as well as woman who think they are men (and who still sport their original feminine breasts). It was a topless orgy. Although White House officials condemned what was an obvious and predictable show of poor judgement on the part of the Trans radicals, one of them (who goes by Rose Montoya, which tells me it’s probably a man) doubled down and defended his perverse behavior, claiming it was totally legal for them to expose themselves.
  • And while advocates of mutilation of children who think they are Trans is defended by the Left as being beneficial to those children, when Dan Crenshaw grilled Leftist-Dem and Yale School of Medicine professor Meredithe McNamara, she was tongue-tied and could not cite one single credible study showing the medical benefits of such mutilation. Still, that didn’t dissuade the new President of the American Medical Association to lash out against laws that ban minors from being mutilated simply because they think they are the opposite gender than how they were born, claiming it is both unethical and unscientific not to engage in such mutilation, prompting me to wonder how a blithering idiot became the President of the AMA.

Anti-White Racism:

  • In a hair-brained push for what they call “diversity,” the British Royal Air Force is launching a campaign to weed out “useless white males” from their fleet of pilots. I’m sure that will work out well for England’s Armed Forces.
  • And a racist Democrat politician in Maryland claimed that white women should be removed from leadership roles in order to dismantle systemic racism.

Media Corruption:

  • Although a highly credible FBI source claims President Joe Biden was involved in a bribery scheme, the mainstream media will not cover the story. They are in collusion with the corrupt Biden White House.
  • The New York Times ran some FAKE NEWS cover for the Biden Team, touting Biden’s lucid nature – after he fell down again.
  • Yet the Biden scandals are merely the tip of the iceberg, as the evidence points to systemic widespread corruption at the highest levels of our government.
  • And media corruption showed its true colors repeatedly, with outlets such as the NY Times, CNN, NPR, and USA Today continually touting the great amount of diversity of the Democratic Party candidates seeking high office, while completely ignoring the very diverse Republican Presidential Primary candidates. Just didn’t fit the preferred narrative.
  • More media corruption came from the mainstream media which reported that Conservatives phoned in bomb threats to Target when in fact it was LGBT activists that did so.
  • MSNBC featured a Leftist-Dem lawmaker who said Donald Trump ought to be shot. She quickly changed that apparent Freudian slip to “stopped.” And, of course, the media glossed over it, something they would never have done had a Republican said that about Joe Biden.

Woke Madness:

  • The University of Houston has created a radical DEI bureaucracy that condemns the United States as a “white supremacy system,” castigates Christians for their “religious privilege,” and hosts sexually explicit events such as “Queer Sex After Dark” and “Sex Ed Bingo: Chance to Win a Sex Toy.”
  • The City Council in Dallas, Texas basically threatens any employee with termination if they do not bow down to Trans demands that everyone honor their choice of pronouns. Comply or be fired.
  • Oxford University threatened to expel any students who misgender their peers.
  • We learned that Black Rock manipulates its client firms to embrace radicalized woke ideology.
  • Cracker Barrel jumped on the woke bandwagon and decided to promote LGBT propaganda. They will certainly alienate their customer base just as Target and Bud Light did.
  • The National Education Association teachers union unveiled an LGBT toolkit to further indoctrinate students.
  • Dane County, Wisconsin gave itself “sanctuary status” for transgender children, in yet another effort to make it normal to mutilate confused youth.
  • And ABC News continued the LGBT brainwash by profiling a 3-year-old who claims to be transgender, as if no one planted that notion in the 3-year-old’s head.
  • A math teacher at Edison High School in Huntington Beach, California forced her students to watch an LGBT indoctrination video, and threatened to punish the students when they groaned at the thought of having to watch such filth.
  • The folks who run the Academy Awards in Hollywood instituted new diversity and inclusion requirements, mandating that if you want your film to be considered for Best Picture, you must use a gay actor, or a non-white actor, or a female (if not genderless) actor in a lead role, but certainly not a straight white male. No more Clint Eastwood, no more Tom Cruise, no more Jack Nicholson, no more Adam Sandler. Go with Dylan Mulvaney instead if you want a shot at Best Picture.
  • NPR bastardized Father’s Day by featuring a “Pregnant Dad” story.

Pride Parades:

  • In Dallas, LGBTQIA2S+ revelers held what they call an event for “all ages.” Thus, young children were exposed to sexually explicit merchandise at vendor booths featuring “edible penises” and the like. That’s considered “family friendly” to the Left.

I intended to cover the entire month of June. I’ve only addressed the first 19 days of June and this column is already way too long. So I will stop with the bad news. But it wasn’t all bad. For example:

  • The University of North Carolina Medical School renounced their own DEI program.
  • Sam Brinton, the former senior Department of Energy (DOE) official, who wears women’s clothing and bright red lipstick and claims he’s non-binary (which is a delusion) was arrested yet again for Grand Larceny, after stealing a third suitcase from an airport baggage claim area.
  • He hasn’t learned a single thing from his previous two arrests.
  • A former Trans person (who de-transitioned from faux female to the male he always was) spoke out about the dangers of “transitioning”. He should be saluted for his courage.
  • Brave parents got bold at Saticoy Elementary School in North Hollywood, California by protesting the LGBT indoctrination going on there.
  • A Florida High School came to its senses, albeit far too late, and reprinted their Yearbook minus the LGBT spread they had featured in the first printing.
  • After a University of Cincinnati student received a failing grade in her Gender Studies class because she used the forbidden term “biological woman” in a paper, she had a different, more sane, professor re-grade her paper, earning her an “A” grade.
  • It was heartening to see some women (actual women) athletes speak out against men who are ruining their athletic opportunities by pretending they are women (although it was disheartening, but predictable, to hear Karine Jean-Pierre, the White House Press Secretary, opine that it is “dangerous” to even so much as question the appropriateness of men competing against woman).
  • A number of retail organizations came to their senses and abandoned San Francisco, including Park Hotels & Resorts, Westfield’s Centre Mall, and Cinemark Theaters.
  • We learned that Facebook had been censoring true facts about Covid that Conservatives voiced, and that Facebook did that because the government pressured them. Glad Mark Zuckerberg finally admitted the obvious.
  • The wise and brilliant Kirk Cameron continued to call attention to the cult-like attributes of the Trans agenda.
  • And finally, when high school English teacher Nicole Noel Henares decided to go woke and discriminate against her white male students by guilting them for being white, she was suspended – remarkable considering this took place in San Francisco.
