Democratic Rep. Katherine Clark of Massachusetts delivered a speech recognizing the trans community’s struggle for survival, stating that “they are being forced to fight for their very existence.”
This comes in the wake of a brutal school shooting where a female transsexual took the lives of six Christians. In her speech, Clark not only paid tribute to the trans community but also condemned those opposing the transsexual agenda, including the groups that were allegedly targeted in the Nashville shooting. Clark, who serves as the Democratic whip in the House, emphasized the importance of supporting the trans community and ensuring their safety.
Following the Covenant School shooting, some LGBT activists and trans advocacy groups directed criticism towards Republicans, religious institutions, and others. Some even seemed to deflect blame from the transsexual woman who killed three children and three adults.
“Every study available shows that transgender and non-binary people are much more likely to be the victims of violence, rather than the perpetrator of it.” Madonna commented.
In response to the tragedy, Human Rights Campaign, an LGBT lobbying group, noted that “every study available shows that transgender and non-binary people are much more likely to be the victims of violence, rather than the perpetrator of it.” Madonna also commented on the shooting, stating that “the oppression of the LGBTQ+ is not only unacceptable and inhumane, but it’s also creating an unsafe environment,” highlighting the danger that transsexuals face. TheBlaze previously reported on Madonna’s statement.
The elderly musician announced that she would hold a concert in Nashville, with proceeds benefitting “trans rights” groups. In response to the tragic incident in Nashville, the Trans Resistance Network issued a statement calling it “not one tragedy, but two,” implying that the transsexual child-killer should be mourned as well.
The group also suggested that recent policies, such as Republican legislation aimed at protecting children from genital mutilation and hormone therapies, as well as criticisms of the trans agenda, were contributing to the “genocidal eradication of trans people from society” and partly responsible for the shooting. The Trans Resistance Network also warned, “Hate has consequences.”
Democratic Rep. Katherine Clark, whose son identifying as “trans” was charged with assaulting a police officer in January, echoed much of the activist groups’ rhetoric in her speech to Congress on Thursday.
Clark stated that opposing the happiness of transsexual individuals “is to stand against our most basic American values. But that’s exactly what MAGA extremists are doing across this country — on school boards, in state Capitols, here in the halls of Congress.” Without any apparent sense of irony, Clark accused Republicans of “waging an especially vicious crusade on our kids” and perpetrating “cruelty” on members of the trans community via “right-wing extremists.”
“Let’s reject the forces of opposition and bigotry,” Clark stated. “Let’s celebrate the bravery and beauty of our trans community.”
Clark, the Democratic whip in the House and whose son is a transsexual, delivered a speech on Thursday in Congress where she echoed the rhetoric of activist groups. “Let’s reject the forces of opposition and bigotry,” Clark stated. “Let’s celebrate the bravery and beauty of our trans community.” She then went on to quote a letter from a mother to her transitioning daughter, acknowledging the challenges facing the trans community. “I know your strength, but I also know how determined the forces are that have pitted themselves against you, the politicians and preachers who would rather see you languish in a dark closet.”
However, Clark made no mention of the Nashville shooting, which claimed the lives of six Christians, including a preacher’s daughter.
ared Dowell, who Rep. Katherine Clark refers to as her daughter Riley, was charged with multiple crimes, including assault and battery on a Boston police officer, vandalizing a historic monument, damaging property by tagging, and resisting arrest.
According to police reports, Dowell allegedly left an officer “bleeding from his nose and mouth” when they attempted to arrest him for vandalizing a monument with anti-police slogans.
The use of provocative rhetoric seems to run in the family, as Dowell’s mother, Rep. Clark, has been known to use language that demonizes those who do not share her views.
