Democrat LGBT town hall paints a terrifying picture for Christians

So CNN held their LGBTQ Town Hall last night for the 2020 Democratic presidential candidates, and the rest of us got a good look at where this country is headed if they manage to retake power (which Trump’s bumbling seems to be abetting at the moment). Many conservative commentators are trumpeting the fact that the Democrats let their mask slip and will consequently turn off many voters, but I think we may have just gotten a clear glimpse of the future. Maybe not in 2020, but someday soon — and perhaps sooner than we think.

The sheer grovelling of both the CNN hosts and the Democratic candidates, combined with an obviously desperate desire to please and faux sincerity that occasionally triggered applause when the audience approved of their performance, was genuinely nauseating to watch at times. In many cases, the candidates brought themselves to tears — although they and the hosts took so much chastisement from the triumphalist LGBTQ activists grilling them that perhaps the tears were nearer the surface than they had anticipated.

Kamala Harris, for example, walked out and announced to Chris Cuomo that “My pronouns are she, her, and hers.” Even Cuomo didn’t know what to say, and cracked a joke that in today’s media climate counts as blasphemy: “Me, too.” Realizing his faux pas, he promptly took to Twitter to beg forgiveness: “PLEASE READ: When Sen. Harris said her pronouns she her and her’s, I said mine too. I should not have. I apologize. I am an ally of the LGBTQ community, and I am sorry because I am committed to helping us achieve equality.” In other words: Please don’t cancel me! I promise I’ll do better!

One transgender person actually grabbed the mic away from a questioner and started screaming that CNN was aiding and abetting the murder of trans people by “erasing” “trans people of color,” and promptly received wild applause from the crowd. Don Lemon thanked the protestor for the disturbance and gave her the mic while Beto stood there with the most understanding and sanctimonious face he could muster. When another CNN host brought in “Shea Diamond,” Diamond recoiled, proving that you can never be woke enough to please those who wield the power: “It’s She-ah Diamond. Put that on record. Yes, honey, it’s violence to misgender or to alter the name of a trans person, so let’s always get that right first.” As it turns out, you can even commit accidental violence at a CNN LGBTQ Town Hall. With that in mind, who is safe? Who cannot be convicted of “violence” under this definition and under a regime where these people run the show?
