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.
President Trump Announces New 1776 Commission to Promote Patriotic Education in Nation’s Schools
An alternative to leftist brainwashing.
President Donald Trump announced the formation of a new ‘1776 Commission’ during a speech at the National Archives Museum on Thursday, creating a new commission that will work to instill principles of patriotic and pro-American education in defiance to left-wing school and university systems.
The President spoke of the need for the new commission in light of the vision championed by the cultural left, citing the New York Times’ 1619 Project and ‘critical race theory’ anti-white teachings pervasive throughout Fortune 500 companies and federal government agencies. (The President issued an executive order banning critical race theory brainwashing at the beginning of the month.)
The 1776 Commission will work to promote patriotic education and defend American heritage and character. It’s likely the organization will create curriculum that celebrates the American legacy, as leftists in public school and university systems work relentlessly to attack it.
“Our mission is to defend the legacy of America’s founding, the virtue of America’s heroes, and the nobility of the American character,” Trump said of the Commission’s goals. “We must clear away the twisted web of lies in our schools and classrooms and teach our children the magnificent truth about our country. We want our sons and daughters to know that they are the citizens of the most exceptional nation in the history of the world.”
“These radicals have been aided and abetted by liberal politicians, establishment media, and even large corporations,” Trump said. “Whether it is the mob in the street or the cancel culture in the boardroom, the goal is the same: To silence dissent, to scare you out of speaking the truth, and to bully Americans into abandoning their values, their heritage, and their very way of life.”
“We are here today to declare that we will never submit to tyranny. We will reclaim our history and our country for citizens of every race, color, religion, and creed,” the president continued.
The President understands that conservatives and patriots must fight for cultural power as they do for political power, an pressing priority for conservatives who desire to fight back against the cultural left’s domination of the educational world.
