“The Perversion of the Progressive Socialist Left”

My wife, Angela, and I are the proud parents of two wonderful daughters, Aubrey, 27, and, Austen, 23. We were — and still are — very protective of them and their innocence. Yes, I was one of those dads who guarded the honor of my daughters with my life, to defend them against any potential danger . . . and I always will be.

And. so it is that I find the recent Netflix movie, “Cuties” to be abjectly disturbing. I find it utterly disconcerting that anyone would endeavor to make a film that glorifies the sexualization of little girls, especially in this day and age.

What is unconscionable to me is that there are actually those who would defend such despicable — dare I say, deplorable? — sexual abuse of little girls.

Who is taking up the defense of such a highly deviant film? Yes, the progressive socialist left.

At the time of this writing, there has only been one Democrat, Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard, who has publicly spoken out against this movie. I have not heard anything from Barack and Michelle Obama, who have become part of the Netflix family.

This film should strike a nerve with us here in the Lone Star State, as Texas is the number one state in America for human and sex trafficking. As a matter of fact, it was just a few weeks ago that several human trafficking stash houses were raided along the Mexico/Texas border. In our beloved Texas, Houston and Dallas are the two top cities for human and sex trafficking. Yet, we hear little to nothing from the leftists in Texas about this issue. Remember, it is the left, the Democrats, who want open borders and decriminalize illegal border crossing.

There is no dismissing the fact that the drug cartels in Mexico have made trafficking of humans — children — a lucrative business. We have an entertainment outlet, Netflix, that is aiding and abetting this scourge by glorifying the sexualization of little girls.

But, the issue goes even further than that when you consider the leftist sex education curriculum in Texas. Let us not forget the Austin Independent School District (ISD) sex education curriculum that was approved to be taught to 3rd to 8th graders. Let me just say it is pornographic considering the leftist school board thinks it’s fine to teach our children about sodomy. This reinforces why I often state that the most important elected position in America is to the school board.

This election cycle we have several school board races, and also Texas State Board of Education positions that will appear on the ballot. It is imperative that we cease allowing the perversion of the progressive socialist left to harm our children. We expect our children to be educated, not indoctrinated into perversions based upon the ideological agenda of the progressive socialist left as advanced by the radical LGBTQ organizations.

Speaking of LGBTQ radicalism, one need only look at what just occurred in California. As reported by the Los Angeles Times on September 11th, under the title of “Newsom signs bill intended to end discrimination against LGBTQ people in sex crimes convictions:”

Discrimination against LGBTQ people in sex crime convictions will be outlawed under a new law signed by Gov. Gavin Newsom late Friday evening.

The measure, Senate Bill 145, will amend existing state law that allows judges to decide whether an adult convicted of having vaginal sexual intercourse with a minor should register as a sex offender in cases in which the minor is 14 years or older and the adult is not more than 10 years older that the minor.

Currently, adults who are convicted of having oral or anal sex with a minor under those circumstances are automatically added to the state’s sex offender registry. SB 145 will eliminate automatic sex offender registration in those cases and give judges discretion to make that decision.”

I pray that each of you will read those italicized words and realize that the progressive socialist left is fully seeking to mainstream pedophilia. The language that Gavin Newsom just signed into law means that a 23-year-old can engage in sexual relations with a 14-year-old, and not be considered a sex offender, as it is less than a difference of 10 years.

I hope you will begin to see the evidence of the progressive socialist left’s perversion and lack of care for our children, especially girls. The wanton acceptance of the film “Cuties,” the lack of addressing human and sex trafficking in Texas, and the disturbing sex education curriculum being pushed by leftists in Texas are all evidence of such.

And, now this incredibly deranged SB 145 law in California. 

Texans, think about this: the Democrats want to “turn Texas blue,” meaning make it more like California. Is that really what we want? Do we truly want, in a state that is number one for sex trafficking, to mainstream sexual deviancy with our children?

This is also why we need to keep leftist judicial activists out of our courts in Texas.

Parents, we are the storm!
