A showing of a down syndrome drag show has been kicked out of a venue in Grand Rapids, MI following public outrage.
The organizers still claim that “Drag Syndrome” will be performed somewhere else in the city on Sept. 7, as apart of the Project 1 contest by ArtPrize. The organization holding the contest is not happy about the decision made by owners of the venue.
ArtPrize released a statement saying that the organization “has always supported free artistic expression by all participants and has not denied or screen individuals. Consistent with this, we believe it would be inappropriate to limit the participation of performers who have Down syndrome.”
Drag Syndrome is the latest manufactured craze pushed by the LGBT movement to exploit disabled individuals to promote their perverse sexual agenda.
The display was supposed to be held at Tanglefoot, a venue owned by Peter Meijer, whose family owns a popular grocery store chain in the Midwest. Meijer, who is also one of many Republican Congressional contenders in Michigan’s 3rd District, kicked the perverse display out of his venue.
“As the true nature of Drag Syndrome’s performance became clear, I consulted with various relevant communities to ensure my decision was made as free from personal bias as possible,” Meijer wrote in his official statement about his decision.
“I spoke with parents of the differently abled, people who had family members with Down’s syndrome, and members of the LGBTQ and artist community. In nearly every conversation, concerns were raised about the potential exploitation of the vulnerable,” he added.
“I cannot know, and neither can an audience, whether the individuals performing for Drag Syndrome are giving, or are in a position to give, their full and informed consent. To that end, I cannot allow Drag Syndrome to perform at Tanglefoot,” Meijer concluded.
However, one of Meijer’s Republicans opponents for the 3rd District Congressional Seat – veterans’ advocate Thomas Norton – believes that Meijer’s venue never should have agreed to host the event in the first place.
“The fact that you have to sit there and figure out what consultants are going to tell you is okay is disturbing. You have no moral compass, which is one of the first requirements that you need in Congress,” Norton said in a Twitter post.
“It’s not deep reflection. You knew dang well what was going on there, and the fact that you’re going to pretend you didn’t is a lie,” he added.
DisArt, an organization that promotes disabled people in the arts, is angry at Meijer as well because they feel he did not adequately kowtow to the LGBT agenda.
“Exclusion is discrimination, it is self-preservation, it is exploitation for political gain. It is not protection,” DisArt wrote in a letter. “We are deeply saddened, angered and appalled at the decision to exclude Drag Syndrome from a venue they were given.”
DisArt vows to find a new venue to host Drag Syndrome, as sanity is not expected to last in Grand Rapids for long.
Brown University Cultural Leftists Demand Destruction of Classical Roman Emperor Statues on Campus
They hate western civilization.
Left-wing racial ideologues at Brown University in Rhode Island are demanding that the school destroy two classical statues of iconic Roman emperors, claiming that the works of art represent “white supremacy.”
Amanda Brynn, Justin Han, Sam Kimball, Junaid Malik, Olivia Mayeda, and Kelley Tackett, six undergraduate students affiliated with “Decolonization at Brown,” are demanding that the school destroy two classical-style statues of Roman emperors Augustus Caesar and Marcus Aurelius.
They claim in a blog post that the statues “were brought to our campus with the goals of upholding the ideal of the ‘perfect’ white form, white civilization, white supremacy and colonialism — ideas that we believe are incompatible with Brown today.”
“This is not just about monuments. It is also about the kinds of people and histories that students at Brown today are taught to idealize.”
They’re demanding that the classical statues, which appear to be replicas of famous Renaissance and ancient art, be replaced with pieces created by “artists of color.”
Marcus Aurelius was Roman emperor in the 2nd century in an era of peace and prosperity for the ancient civilization, and is known for documenting the philosophy of stoicism in literature that has been studied for millennia.
Ironically, classical-style statues have been targeted for destruction on cultural grounds before. The Vandals, a Germanic tribe that warred with the Roman Empire in its era of decline, associated their name with property damage and barbaric behavior through their frequent destruction of cultural statues.
The stringent ideologues detest the glories of western civilization, and would destroy the cultural inheritance of the American legacy before it is passed to future generations. Their own liberal fanaticism will fade from history as an uncreative and empty religion, whereas the legacies of great men will endure.
