Since 2015, there have been dozens of reports all across the nation about U.S. public schools and libraries allowing convicted child predators to teach kids as young as 3 years old about LGBTQ+ ideologies at what are called, “Drag Queen Story Hour (DQSH)” events.
This is an actual picture of a recent event posted to a Long Beach, California public library’s Twitter account. Omar Navarro, Long Beach congressional candidate Tweeted that he was “outraged” after a drag queen sporting demon-like horns was invited to read to children as part of the Drag Queen Story Hour at the Michelle Obama Neighborhood Library.
Mochi later said it was one of his “best experiences…as a drag queen.”
“It’s so important to have representation and normalize all the letters in LGBTQIA+ in everyday lives,” he wrote in an Instagram post.
There is good reason to be outraged like Senator Navarro because it has been revealed that some of these drag queens are convicted child sex predators who should NOT be around children.
For example, in 2019, the Houston Public Library Drag Queen was convicted of multiple sexual assaults against young children. The man was photographed at a Drag Queen Story Hour (DQSH) event carrying a rubber chicken — a symbol used by homosexuals to indicate a sexual preference for young boys.
The drag queen Dylan Pontiff (Santana Pilar Andrews), a registered sex offender bluntly admitted the true purpose of the drag queen story hour.
“This is going to be the grooming of the next generation,” he said.
A convicted child predator, Pontiff also wrote an article in which he describes ‘Desmond is Amazing’ – the 12-year-old drag queen kid – as “hot”.
Another one of the participants at a drag queen story time event in Houston, 32-year-old Albert Alfonso Garza, AKA Tatiana Mala Nina, turned out to be a registered sex offender who was convicted of assaulting an eight-year-old boy in 2008.
After it was found that Albert Alfonso Garza and the outraged parents voiced their concerns, it turns out that the Houston Public Library did not even bother to perform a simple background check on the drag queens who would be in close contact with young children as required by U.S. Federal and state laws.
Hence, these school officials are violating federal and state legal statutes making them criminals who are complicit with child sex offenders granting them carte blanche access to our children.
The Houston Public Library released this statement in response to public outrage:
“We were made aware today that one participant for Drag Queen storytime who read at the September 29, 2018, Drag Queen Storytime has a criminal background that should have prevented him from participating in the program.
We assure you that this participant will not be involved in any future HPL programs.
In our review of our process and of this participant, we discovered that we failed to complete a background check as required by our own guidelines. We deeply regret this oversight and the concern this may cause our customers. We realize this is a serious matter.”
“This is not about tolerance or anti-bullying,” Leslie Alexander, a member of the community, told the Lafayette Daily Advertiser.
“It is a direct and intentional effort to create gender confusion and doubt among very young children at the very time they need solid guidance and understanding. The intent is to plant a seed to make children more likely to question their sexuality or gender at a later age.”
The facts are that legal requirement of checking the background of adults who teach or work at the schools in any fashion is not being done by many U.S. school and library officials who are either too lazy, negligent or complicit in allowing these sexual predators to have access to our children.
The facts are that every state in the nation has enacted laws requiring K–12 educators to have criminal background checks (Barstow, Terrazas, and Todd 2012).
For example, the Texas legislature passed Senate Bill 9 in 2007, which requires public and private schools to conduct fingerprint-based criminal background checks on applicants such as certified teachers, substitute teachers and teachers’ aides, whether or not certified, volunteers, contractors who will have direct contact with students and noncertified employees.
Texas prohibits employers from hiring teachers and other employees who will have contact with children with misdemeanor or felony convictions for crimes of moral turpitude and misdemeanor or felony convictions for crimes involving minor victims, including sexual offenses or abuse.
In California, both private and public school employers are required to conduct fingerprint-based criminal background checks on applicants and California Education Omnibus Bill Trailer Act (AB 130) became effective on Jan. 1, 2022.
It also mandates that any contractors that contract with schools must secure fingerprint background checks on any employees who will interact with students while contracting for work with schools.
WHO IS ALLOWING THESE DRAG QUEENS AND CONVICTED CHILD SEX PREDATORS IN OUR LIBRARIES AND SCHOOLS
Surprisingly and to the alarm of thousands of concerned parents across the U.S., these Drag Queen Story Hour (DQSH) events have been sanctioned and funded by organizations like the American Library Association (ALA) to explicitly allow drag queen performers to read children’s books at public libraries and bookshops to young audiences and their families featuring LGBTQ+ characters.
The drag queens are trained by children’s librarians on how to read books, sing songs, and teach kids crafts typically targeting younger children aged between 3 and 11.
The organization that hosts these events is called DQSH and is a non-profit that is being funded by taxpayer dollars. One of the co-founders of the New York chapter said in June 2019 that the DQSH has 35 U.S. and five international chapters. He said the program strives to “instill the imagination and play of gender fluidity of childhood and gives kids glamorous, positive, and unabashedly queer role models”.
Drag Queen Story Hour pitches itself as a family-friendly event to promote reading, tolerance, and inclusion. “In spaces like this,” the organization’s website reads, “kids are able to see people who defy rigid gender restrictions and imagine a world where everyone can be their authentic selves.” But many parents, even if reluctant to say it publicly, have an instinctual distrust of adult men in women’s clothing dancing and exploring sexual themes with their children.
According to author Christopher F Ruffo, this is the new sexual politics and it is nothing but the “destruction of sex, the reconstruction of child sexuality, and the subversion of middle-class family life. Ruffo wrote:
“The drag queen might appear as a comic figure, but he carries an utterly serious message: the deconstruction of sex, the reconstruction of child sexuality, and the subversion of middle-class family life. The ideology that drives this movement was born in the sex dungeons of San Francisco and incubated in the academy.
It is now being transmitted, with official state support, in a number of public libraries and schools across the United States. By excavating the foundations of this ideology and sifting through the literature of its activists, parents and citizens can finally understand the new sexual politics and formulate a strategy for resisting it,” Ruffo said.
One of the main people who has spearheaded this movement and sits on the board of Drag Queen Story Hour is a college professor and drag queen named Harris Kornstein—stage name Lil Miss Hot Mess.
He is the author of the LGBTQ+ children’s book The Hips on the Drag Queen Go Swish, Swish, Swish. Kornstein also penned the Drag Queen Story Hour manifesto, “Drag Pedagogy: The Playful Practice of Queer Imagination in Early Childhood,” with coauthor Harper Keenan, a female-to-male transgender queer theorist at the University of British Columbia.
As the authors, Kornstein and Keenan explain that the manifesto sets forth LGBTQ+ ideologies in order to disrupt the traditional family and traditional American schooling.
Chritsian Ruffo said that they will accomplish this by teaching a new method, “drag pedagogy,” to stimulate the “queer imagination,” by teaching young kids “how to live queerly,” and “bringing queer ways of knowing and being into the education of young children.”
As Chritsian Ruffo points out, Kornstein and Keenan clearly state that their main goal is toward undermining traditional notions of sexuality, replacing the biological family with the ideological family, and arousing transgressive sexual desires in young children. They wrote:
“Building in part from queer theory and trans studies, queer and trans pedagogies seek to actively destabilize the normative function of schooling through transformative education,” they said. “This is a fundamentally different orientation than movements towards the inclusion or assimilation of LGBT people into the existing structures of school and society.”
According to Swarthmore College, “Kornstein’s goal is to bring drag into the classroom at a Swarthmore-like institution where he could work in a hybrid mode of performance and theory. Starting with story hour, though, has been fiercely rewarding.”
“I have the kids repeat, ‘When I grow up, I want to be a drag queen!’” he says. “I tell them to say that whenever unsuspecting adults ask them what they want to be.
“It’s always a cute moment that plays on the unfounded fears many people have about queers converting children—and that’s exactly why I like it.”
Is this a good thing to allow drag queens to teach LGBTQ+ ideologies to our children and are organizations like the American Library Association (ALA) placing our children at risk of rape by sexual predators who wish to groom our children?
In my opinion, this is a terrible idea and the facts and bad press already prove that there are many people in this movement who are sexual criminals posturing under the guise of social justice and neoliberal ideologies in order to get access to our children’s minds and bodies.
The facts speak for themselves no matter what the “drag queens” and government officials wish to claim.
Again, in 2019, At a drag queen story hour at Hennepin County Library in Hennepin County, Minnesota, a performer by the name “Sasha Sosa,” flashed his crotch to young kids at the audience during the event.
Sosa’s colleague, who performs under the pseudonym “Gemini Valentine” appears to take the floor wearing a revealing leotard.
The CPL discovered that both performers–Sosa and Valentine–regularly perform at strip clubs and are both believed to be in their late teens.
The taxpayer funded Hennepin County Library reportedly failed to carry out a background check on these performers before the event.
In March 2021, the former head of the Cream City Foundation, which sponsors Drag Queen Story Hour in Milwaukee, was arrested on child pornography charges.
Again, that same year, but this time in Pennsylvania, a drag queen, Brice Patric Ryschon Williams, “genderqueer social worker” and a popular LGBT activist who has danced provocatively for young kids was arrested for 25 counts of child pornography.
After tipsters from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children found 76 files in May 2021 with child pornography had been put in a Dropbox account under Williams’ drag queen name, “Anastasia Diamond,” they alerted the Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General’s Child Predator Section. Based on the evidence, his home was then raided by the FBI on June 23.
Williams is a licensed social worker with a Master’s Degree in Social Work from Shippensburg University and also serves as a board member of the Franklin County Coalition for Progress, the Pride Franklin County Committee, and the United Way of Chambersburg’s Diversity, Inclusion, and Equity Committee, and currently works for GLO Harrisburg, a center that offers a “safe space” for LGBTQ+ youth of color.
On Williams Instagram account “bricie95” which has since been deactivated, he describes himself as an “HIV Community Educator” and “Licensed Masters Level Social Worker” using both he/him and she/her pronouns.
According to FBI agents, the email address associated with the account was listed as belonging to Anastasia Diamond, or Ana D. Inspection of the files determined that at least 49 of the 76 files appear to depict children under the age of 18 performing sexual acts. After a preliminary search of the IP address determined to be William’s Comcast internet account, a subpoena was issued to the ISP.
When the FBI raided his home, they found the defendant’s phone with at least 25 videos of child pornography, and more on his old phone. Special Agent Nye stated in the report that the 25 videos were just a small sample of the number of sexually explicit files on Williams’ phone.
According to the police report, FBI Special Agent Nye confronted Williams after finding his devices with child porn and he then admitted that he had searched for, possessed, and shared child pornography.
He then told police that he first saw child pornography in 2014 on a messaging app and that he eventually started uploading the files to cloud storage apps to send and receive more files and links with other people online.
Brice Patric Ryschon Williams pleaded not guilty and is being held on $100,000 bail at Franklin County Corrections.
These child grooming events are not just for schools and our libraries, at Allendale United Methodist Church in St. Petersburg, Florida on Sunday, October 2, 2022, drag queen bible story hour was taught to young children like how drag queen ideology aligns with the Bible, according to Life Site News.
The senior pastor Andy Oliver dressed in pink asked all the children in attendance to come up to the stage, where he asked Simmons several questions about himself and his aspirations to ministry.
The drag queen, Isaac Simmons, aka “Penny Cost,” was dressed like a demon and used “they” and “them” pronouns and “she” and “her” pronouns while speaking in drag about deconstructing and reimagining the church.
Oliver told the children about how the drag queen, Penny Cost, reminds us that we follow God who calls us to not conform to the things of this world. He said that:
“We’re supposed to be transformed by the renewal of our minds and that means what I think today may have to change tomorrow and if I continue to renew my mind and it so cool that we serve a God that calls us to continue to grow and to continue to change into something new and to not be bound by the ways that the world confines us sometimes.”
He concluded, “That were supposed to live differently!” And then asked the kids to pray with them.
Here is the video of the event.
“We are here to learn and to grow and to deconstruct and to reimagine what church can be, who church can be for, and how church can feel together. The church can be a place unafraid to denounce queerphobia, a place unafraid to name the sin of racism, and to call for an end to white supremacy.
A place where all have equal and equitable access not just to the pulpit itself, to the sanctuary, but to God themselves, and all that it represents within the community.”
WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THE DRAG QUEEN STORY HOUR?
Some neolibearl parents have expressed support for the Drag Queen Story Hour claiming that it creates an all inclusive educational environment, stressing the tolerance towards those with unorthodox identities.
There are many people and concerned parents who have been critical of these events considering the facts that they promote a homosexual and transexual lifestyle that is opposed to traditional family values.
Regardless of what the drag queens and government officials try to claim, a new poll by Rassmussen found that 44% of Americans believe that these drag queen story hours were “not at all” appropriate for children, and another 16% stated it to be “not very” appropriate, while 10% said they were not sure.
According to Rasmussen’s head pollster, Mark Mitchell, this question alone had “riled up about the most hate in any survey” he had ever conducted, emphasizing the fury among Americans the issue has caused in recent years.
Only 11% of respondents thought they were “very appropriate” for children, while 28% claimed that they were “somewhat appropriate.”
In regards to political affiliations, 79% of Republicans disapproved of Drag Queen Story Hours, while 47% of Democrats were in support and 41% against the events.
71% said the event should not be taxpayer funded in comparison to just 14% who said the taxpayer should foot the bill.
There is a big gap in beliefs between age groups with 46% of people aged 19-39 saying it was appropriate, compared to 71% of adults aged 40-64 and 77% of adults over 65 who stated that the event was inappropriate.
Slightly more women than men approved of the drag queen story hours, and to no surprise, government employees were the most likely to approve.
However, regardless of what anyone thinks is right, the American Library Association (ALA) and many public school officials have voted to move full steam ahead with their LGBTQ+ child grooming agenda regardless of what your values are for your children and how you believe they should be raised.
According to the Queens Public Library President and CEO Dennis Walcott:
“It is a pleasure for Queens Public Library to welcome Angel Elektra back to our Jackson Heights branch to capture the imaginations of children and adults through an amazing storytelling experience.”
The Queens diustrict approved a budget of $25,000 set aside for “Drag Queen Story Hour programming.”
City Councilman Jimmy Van Bramer (D-Queens), chair of the Cultural Affairs and Libraries Committee, said the funding increase will ensure that even more New Yorkers can enjoy the diverse programming offered by public libraries.
“I am especially proud to support Drag Queen Story Hour, a wonderfully imaginative and inclusive program for kids that encourages acceptance and a love of reading,” Van Bramer said. “Drag Queen Story Hour provides all kids with a space to be themselves and to see queer role models — something I desperately needed as a kid.”
In August 2019, a petition by LifeSiteNews and Personhood Alliance, both anti-abortion activism groups, asked the American Library Association (ALA) to stop promoting the story hours; it gathered nearly 100,000 signatures.
The ALA responded by affirming that it “strongly opposes any effort to limit access to information, ideas and programmes that patrons wish to explore” and “includes a commitment to combating marginalisation and underrepresentation within the communities served by libraries through increased understanding of the effects of historical exclusion.”
As a father of four young children at home, I was absolutely appalled to learn that school and library officials were allowing drag queens to read LGBTQ+ books to kids in libraries, schools, and bookstores. I then discovered thousands of other parents and people who were equally offended.
While these drag queens’ words and motives may seem altruistic on the surface to some people, there appears to be a sinister agenda behind it and also a high number of convicted child sex officers and rapists among their ranks.
These same people want to shape and mold your children’s minds to groom them into their ideologies while simultaneously destroying the traditional family and traditional schooling.
It has now become one of the major ideological wars being fought between the neoliberals on the far Left and traditional Liberals and conservatives on the Right who have decided that they have had enough of these child abusers who have stepped over the line.
It’s no secret that many Americans, both Democrat and Republican are now vehemently opposed to the drag queen story hours now that it has been shown that the movement has been infiltrated and exploited by sexual predators and pedophiles to not only get closer to kids, but to groom them for sexual perversions by molding their young brains into a “Satanic State of Mind.”
This is where many of us draw the line.
