Donald Trump once boasted at a rally that “I could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose voters.” Well, we learned recently that drag queens can march through New York City chanting “We’re here, we’re queer, we’re coming for your children” and the corporate media would laugh it off and say “No big deal.” How do we know that? Because they did.

Both the chant itself and the response from media apologists to criticism of the chant are important markers in the revolt against Western civilization often called the culture war.

Since the U.S. Supreme Court imposed same sex “marriage” on the entire country in 2015 by judicial fiat (having learned nothing from the Roe v. Wade fiasco), we have witnessed an explosion of overt grooming and pro-pedophilia propaganda of various kinds. For example, who ever heard of Drag Queen Story Hour before 2015? Had you? No? Well, there is a reason for that. As dragstoryhour.org notes, Drag Queen Story Hour was started by activist Michelle Tea in San Francisco in 2015. It is not your imagination that it is a new phenomenon.

During the decade prior to 2015, LGBT propaganda focused on trying to convince us how “normal” and “safe” the whole LGBT movement is. They just wanted the right to marry like everyone else—with the emphasis on how they were just like everyone else. They were boring, suburban couples living in houses with white picket fences. But once the legality of same-sex “marriage” was secured, it was safe for the movement to go on to the next logical step in the queering of America (and the world).

Drag queens are homosexual men who dress up to imitate a crude and disgusting stereotype of woman thus insulting women and making it clear that they don’t care what women think because they don’t need women. Drag queens existed long before 2015. But suddenly drag queens wanted access to children in public. That was new.

For the corporate media, tolerance is a one-way street.

Homosexual men corrupting boys, of course, is not new. The John Jay Study done for the U.S. Catholic Bishops in 2004 found that 81 percent of the victims of clergy sexual abuse were male. More recent studies in France and Spain found similar patterns. The Catholic Church sexual abuse scandal is mostly a homosexual child abuse scandal. We have always known that some homosexual men seek sex with boys. But it has always been kept out of sight and under wraps. It was the elephant in the room everybody was supposed to studiously ignore.

But in recent years the attempt to make “minor-attracted people” a protected gender identity has emerged in several legislative initiatives. For a generation now, children have their natural inhibitions about sex broken down by the constant barrage of talk about sex from adults in the public school system. The UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights launched a new set of legal principles dubbed “the March 8 Principles,” which calls for legalization for all types of consensual sexual conduct and states that persons below the minimum age of consent may engage in consensual sexual activity. So, children can consent to sex, and all types of consensual sex should be legal. It is permissible to complete the syllogism?

The NBC story does not quote any conservatives or contextualize the concern in the sort of events of recent history noted in the previous paragraph. It does, however, quote the organizer of the Drag March as saying, “It’s all just words,” in reference to the “we’re coming for your children” chant. He tried to pass it off as a joke. Of course, if a conservative march chanted “We’re coming for the gays,” you can bet your bottom dollar that the NBC reporter would not laugh it off and say, “It’s all just words.”

For the corporate media, tolerance is a one-way street. NBC doesn’t think the drag queens coming for your children is bad because they think your hang-ups about children having sex with adults is just evidence of your narrow-mindedness. Maybe the average NBC reporter isn’t personally coming for your children, but he is very sure you are a bigot for letting it bother you.

When people tell you what they are going to do, take them seriously. If they didn’t mean it, then being on high alert won’t hurt. And if they did, it is better to be prepared to resist.

Grooming children is not a joke. It is a reality in the latest stage of the sexual revolution against the Judeo-Christian sexual ethic. The sooner we take it seriously the fewer children will be harmed.
