Now We Know a Bit More About Abigail Shrier

Whether Shrier is motivated by money, religion or both is irrelevant. Shrier is now actively enabling people who claim that gender identity is a choice.
Abigail Shrier

Abigail Shrier is the author of Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters. Shrier makes the case that young females can be influenced to become transgender. Shrier came to that conclusion due to research by Lisa Littman.

Ms. Shrier did not care that the publisher of that research issued a correction, an apology and a formal comment. Shrier did not care that Littman never spoke with any transgender people. Shrier did not care that most of the mothers Littman spoke with were culled from anonymous transgender-denial websites.

Misleading Hate Group + Gary Bauer Shill for Donald Trump

Nothing says “stupid” like intentionally misquoting someone.
Gary L. Bauer
Friday, the virulently anti-LGBTQ Gary Bauer took to American Family Association's blog to urge people to reelect Trump. At the core of Bauer's effort is the denigration of former VP Joe Biden.

AFA has titled the piece: Biden accused of 'insane' view of wannabe superpower. That wannabe superpower is the People's Republic of China. Bauer claims that China wants Biden to win. Apparently, if true, that is a reason to vote for Trump. Gary Bauer never has made much sense.
Bauer says, Biden has been a vocal “cheerleader” of the ruthless Communist-run country as a U.S. senator and vice president, and he remains so today.

As the first-term Vice President, Biden famously wrote a New York Times op-ed in 2011 that stated he “rejected” the view that China is a growing threat to the United States, and he went on to describe a good relationship with China after spending hours talking with its president, Xi Jinping.

L. Brent Bozell III Now Fighting Nonexistent Censorship

Another reason to #DumpTrump
L. Brent Bozell III

Media Research Center, a nonprofit led by L. Brent Bozell III has made an announcement:
Social media giants like Facebook, Twitter, and Google may deny it, but it’s becoming obvious to many that conservatives are facing censorship. Now, though, the conservative Media Research Center (MRC) has announced a new alliance that’s going to fight the Big Tech companies over this censoring of conservative speech, websites and people, all the way up to the president, who recently saw even his input knocked off the web.

“If they can do it to the president of the United States, they can do it to anyone. And in fact, that’s exactly what’s happening,” said MRC’s Brent Bozell.

In an Effort to Garner Support of American Jews, Trump Demonstrates Remarkable Stupidity

According to Religion News Service:
President Donald Trump reportedly led a White House call to celebrate the Jewish holiday of Rosh Hashanah, which begins this year on Friday (Sept. 18) at sundown. According to the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, Trump urged American Jews to vote for him, saying during the call that voting for Democrats would leave Israel "in big trouble."

"We really appreciate you," Trump reportedly said as he signed off the call, an annual pre-Rosh Hashanah presidential tradition. "We love your country also."

It's a conspiracy I tells ya

The anti-LGBTQ zealotry creates irrationality and paranoia.
Shawn Hyland
Shawn Hyland, Family Policy Alliance
According to Shawn Hyland: NJ School Age Children Forced to Learn Pornographic Acts. Sure. Hyland is employed by Family Policy Alliance which is the political arm of Focus on the Family. Mr. Hyland is apparently a New Jersey coordinator.

Supposedly Hyland was trying to email revised learning standards to a state senator:
I copied and pasted the exact words of the learning standard into the body of the email. That was a tragic mistake, because the exact words and explicit sex acts required for school age children to learn in New Jersey public schools were flagged as “pornographic” by government state computers.
How the hell would he know why an email did not arrive at its intended destination? There are 14 SMTP return codes for transient errors like “420: timeout connection problem.” There are another 16 return codes indicating a permanent failure such as “550: Non-existent email address.” Nowhere in those 30 codes is there anything having to do with pornography.

Case Watch

Kroger Company Pride

The case is Equal Employment Opportunity Commission v. Kroger Company.

Kroger Company is an active participant in LGBTQ Pride. That did not sit well with a couple of employees (Brenda C. Lawson and Trudy K. Rickerd) in Arkansas. Both refused to wear an apron with a rainbow on it (the separate narratives in the complaint are the same for both women). The claims is that they are victims of religious discrimination:
… Lawson believes in the literal interpretation of the Bible. Lawson holds a sincerely held religious belief that homosexuality is a sin.

He lies on the air with the greatest of ease ...

Tony Perkins

The subject of “The Flying Trapeze” was 19th century circus performer, Jules LĂ©otard. I am referring to Hate Group Leader Tony Perkins of Family Research Council. As an aside I derive some pleasure from the fact that Perkins recently blocked me on Twitter. I must have pissed him off.

According to Perkins: Facebook Attaches an Asterisk to Free Speech. The term “free speech” customarily refers to constitutionally guaranteed freedoms. Facebook is a private actor.

Perkins also provides a replay of an interview he conducted with Dr. Andre Van Mol, an anti-LGBTQ ignoramus associated with the hate group, American College of Pediatricians (not to be confused with the American Academy of Pediatrics). I have already addressed Van Mol's nonsense.
