Tomi Touts Her Support of a ‘Straight Pride’ Parade: ‘Straight People Aren’t Allowed to Parade Heterosexuality’

Published

on

Fox News pundit Tomi Lahren is coming out for “straight pride,” and she’s attacking LGBT people and allies who are opposed to the proposed “Straight Pride Parade” this summer in Boston.

“I’m not afraid to say it. I’m straight and proud. There, deal with it!” Lahren said in her Fox Nation “First Thoughts” rant Wednesday, as The Daily Beast reports.

“I have no issue with LGBT people being proud of who they are,” Lahren claimed – despite her long history of attacks against the LGBT community. “I could do without seeing men in Speedos and butt-less chaps parading through the streets,” she offered, mis-pronouncing “chaps.”

Amid a cacophony of curious hand gestures, she concluded: “But whatever. You do you.”

“Sadly, at least in Boston, straight people aren’t allowed to parade their heterosexuality for all to see,” she claimed, ignoring one LGBT writer and activist’s witty observations.

“It is open-season on straight white men in this country,” Lahren added, fueling criticisms that she has repeatedly made racist remarks in the past, “and y’all aren’t allowed to celebrate your straightness.”

“Why is it so taboo nowadays to recognize and be proud of heterosexuality or traditional values in general?” she asked, rhetorically – rather than asking people who are actually knowledgeable about discrimination and right wing extremism.

“Can that not be a thing anymore? According to who? I’m sick of this!” she cried. “Enough with that crap!” Lahren concluded.

Perhaps Lahren’s rush to defend the straight pride parade and its organizers left her no time to learn that they have disturbing far right wing histories and links to at least one hate group.

Seven Florida Republicans File Slew of Anti-LGBTQ Bills

Published

on

Seven Florida Republican lawmakers have filed four bills attacking the LGBTQ community.

NBC News reports “the bills would ban gender-affirming health care for transgender children, repeal municipal and county ordinances protecting LGBTQ workers, and legalize so-called gay conversion therapy in places that had banned the medically debunked practice.”

Conversion therapy has been compared to torture by those who have been victims of it, and states have been banning the practice given its ties to suicide and attempted suicide.

The lawmakers are Rep. Anthony Sabatini, Sen. Dennis Baxley, Rep. Bob Rommel, Sen. Joe Gruters, Rep. Michael Grant, Sen. Keith Perry, and Rep. Byron Donalds (images above, in order of NBC’s reporting.) (NCRM has added links to their Twitter accounts.)

Orlando Weekly’s Solomon Gustavo reports on House Bill 136, filed by Sabatini and Baxley, “which would make it a second-degree felony for health care practitioners to administer treatment for transitioning or changing a child’s sex.”

Published

Elizabeth Warren is calling for financial regulatory agencies to investigate whether President Trump broke the law when he told guests at his Mar-a-Lago resort to expect something “big” in response to Iran’s killing of an American contractor in Iraq, The Daily Beast reports.

“Individuals who were guests at President Trump’s resort may have obtained confidential market-moving information,” a letter Warren sent to agencies read. “These private individuals … would have had the opportunity to obtain significant profits simply by being guests or members at President Trump’s private resort.”

Rupert Murdoch’s Son Rips Fox News for Pushing Falsehoods About Australian Wildfires

Published

on

Rupert Murdoch’s younger son and his wife launched an attack on News Corporation for promoting conspiracy theories about Australia’s devastating wildfires.

Columnists and broadcasters from News Corp Australia — which dominates the country’s media — have questioned climate change’s role in the fires and downplayed the devastation, and James Murdoch and his wife Kathryn condemned the family business, reported The Daily Beast.

“Kathryn and James’ views on climate are well established and their frustration with some of the News Corp and Fox coverage of the topic is also well known,” said a spokesperson for the couple. “They are particularly disappointed with the ongoing denial among the news outlets in Australia given obvious evidence to the contrary.”

James Murdoch is CEO of the investment firm Lupa Systems but sits on the board of News Corp, which publishes more than 140 newspapers in Australia, and his brother Lachlan runs the Fox News Channel in the U.S.

“They are pissing inside the tent and that’s unusual,” said a longtime News Corp executive. “It’s evidence of how high tensions are within the family over climate change. The majority of people who work here agree with James. We are hoping this may be the tipping point.”
