(TheRedAlertNews.com) – Millions of American parents were outraged as they learned LGBTQ activists in a New York City Drag Parade this weekend chanted, “We’re here, we’re queer, we’re coming for your children.”
Specifically, according to the New York Post, during the yearly Drag March in New York City, a group of LGBTQ activists caused a stir by chanting, “We’re here, we’re queer, we’re coming for your children” while walking through Manhattan’s Tompkins Square Park. The event occurred as part of Friday night’s Pride Month festivities.
The procession, characterized by many participants’ extravagant attire, was captured on video.
Footage reveals individuals joining in the provocative chant, even showing one woman dancing without a top on.
Another chant in the video was, “We’re here, we’re queer, we’re not going shopping.” The procession concluded at the famous Stonewall Inn located in Greenwich Village.
The controversial chant provoked strong reactions from conservatives, leading to criticism of the marchers as the video became widespread on social media platforms.
Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.), in response to the video, posted a tweet accusing the movement of promoting surgeries like mastectomies and castrations among minors.
She contended that it bolstered a multi-billion-dollar industry focused on medical child abuse. “Pass the Protect Children’s Innocence Act. Let kids be kids,” she added, referring to a legislative proposal that would criminalize any gender-affirming medical procedures performed on minors.
Jenna Ellis, a lawyer once part of former President Donald Trump’s legal team, tweeted a cryptic message: “Remember that thing they said they totally are not doing?”
Another critic, conservative podcaster Graham Allen, described the video as embodying “EVIL.”
However, numerous internet users suggested that the chant was more than likely a jest in response to allegations of pedophilia within the drag community from conservative critics.
One user disagreed, stating, “The intention is to provoke.” Another expressed regret, writing, “Sadly – this will continue to mar the perception of the gay community who fought so hard to be accepted. This is not accepted.”
New York City will conclude its Pride Month festivities with a grand parade on Sunday. This event is organized annually to honor the 1969 Stonewall Riots, a significant event in the history of the American LGBTQ community.
