Trans Missoula Lawmaker’s Nasty Comments Get National Attention
The only thing I will say is if- I- if you vote yes on this bill and yes on these amendments, I hope the next time there's an invocation, when you bow your heads in prayer, you see the blood on your hands. -Rep. Zooey Zephyr (D-Missoula)
Not only should this Missoula lawmaker be censured by the Montana Legislature, the Montana Democrat Party should be forced to disavow these hateful remarks, and Senator Jon Tester (D-MT) as the lead Democrat party elected official should also disavow these remarks.
Here's video of the comments from Rep. Zooey Zephyr (D-Missoula) that are now getting national attention. The below tweet also includes a response from the Montana Freedom Caucus, which is calling for the censure of Rep. Zephyr- a male who now identifies as a female and is one of 14 transgender lawmakers serving in state legislatures across the US.
This was my reaction after seeing the video footage earlier Wednesday morning. As we discussed last week on the radio, Rep. Zephyr doesn't think that there should be any exceptions when it comes to males playing on girls sports- even for safety.
Not only did Zephyr attack people of faith with the bigoted remarks on the floor of the state House of Representatives- the statement lacked any logic whatsoever. Rep. Zephyr: You're the one that wants to chop off kids body parts. Tell us again who will have blood on their hands?
Senate Bill 99 is a bill that would protect kids from these radical transgender surgeries that remove healthy body parts off of kids, and also lead to life altering medications that can cause chemical castration and osteoporis.
I went off on this story shortly after 6 a.m. on Wednesday morning. You can listen to the full audio below. This story is also gettting national attention. Here's the Fox News coverage.
