When the Drag Queens Showed Up at the Montana Legislature
Montana lawmakers are advancing legislation to protect kids on a number of fronts, including a bill that would prohibit minors from attending drag shows. The bill would require that attendees of a drag show are at least 18 years old.
At least two drag performers showed up to testify in opposition to that legislation during a recent hearing at the capitol in Helena, as you can see in my Tweet below.
Here's something that I think needs to be pointed out. Despite these drag performers showing up in their full attire, GOP lawmakers appear to have been kind and respectful to the drag performers- while also making it clear that they will continue to press forward with their efforts to protect Montana kids.
Now, let's contrast that approach with some of the recent antics of Montana Democrats. Remember when a Native American man from Great Falls, who grew up in Browning on the Blackfeet Reservation, showed up to testify at the Montana Legislature?
That gentleman spoke respectfully before the Montana Legislature saying that he disagrees with the radical transgender agenda. He told me that he sees Montana Democrats culturally appropriating Native American culture in order to push the radical trans agenda, and finds it offensive as a Native American.
As he was speaking before the Montana Legislature, a white liberal Democrat from Livingston not only cut him off in the middle of his testimony- she tried to stop him from being able to testify and later tried to have him thrown out of the hearing room.
As Montana Democrats angrily yell at you to let drag queens read books to your kids, they also try to silence a Native American man wearing a sweatshirt who dares question their radical agenda. And they want to lecture us about tolerance?
The bill referenced above is HB 359. Here's how the Montana Family Foundation describes the legislation.
This bill would prohibit minors from attending drag shows, prohibit minors from entering sexually oriented businesses, prohibit drag performances in libraries or schools that receive state funding, and providing penalties.
