LGBTQ Killings – what it portends

The Blogmaster does NOT support hate speech or hate crime and abhors bigotry and prejudice wherever and whenever it shows. However, there is the obligation by democratic societies to protect the right of citizens to practice freedom of speech. How societies evolve to be inclusive will have to be managed sensibly by today’s leaders. There is no room for the usual rhetoric.

Addressing hate speech does not mean limiting or prohibiting freedom of speech. It means keeping hate speech from escalating into something more dangerous, particularly incitement to discrimination, hostility and violence, which is prohibited under international law.

— United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres, May 2019

The news a man entered an entertainment establishment in the USA where members of the LGBTQ community hang out and shot up the place, reportedly killing 5 and injuring several others, must be condemned. The firing of a homosexual talk show recently from Voice of Barbados because management of the station prefers to operate right of centre should signal to wider society what is to come. It is an impractical position to take that Barbados will be able to avoid the call to integrate the rights of gay, trans community and non binary being stridently advocated into the legislative framework of Barbados. 

If there is doubt, check the call by some contributors to the Constitutional Reform Commission (CRC) to exclude sexual orientation matters from a new Constitution. Across the globe the matter of adopting an allyship approach to building inclusive societies has identified LGBTQ, transgender and non binary issues as contentious. As the USA is finding out with the shooting in Colorado, wedge issues create the opportunity to feed political rhetoric with the objective of winning votes and finding favour to satisfy narrow interest. It seems we have adopted a furtive approach to dealing with this issue. Barbados is proud to be the first to achieve many milestones, having gay prime minister is no big deal. Let us be honest with the people by shedding the hypocrisy.

Here is an issue we should not bury our heads because it will not go away.

  2. Starter comment:
    Would be interesting to know what the numbers would be like if we were to conduct a survey on sexual orientation/preference in Bajan adults.

    Are the voices of a strident religious group in tune with the opinion of the rest of the society?


  3. It would be wrong to point only at religious groups. We see hatred and opposition arising from sources that are not connected to religion.

    Bigotry often covers the religious and color spectrum. It is incomprehensible that two people just loving each other is a reason for a next person to kill them.


  4. Stupse. I want you LGBTQ defenders and practitioners to reside in beautiful “Mother Africa” and practice this lifestyle. Let’s see if only religious groups live there. Go Mother Africa! Defend your culture and social beliefs! Don’t get pressured to conform!


  5. Slavery is an international crime

    Racism, white supremacy and apartheid against Afrikans are international crimes

    Theft of lands, estates, vat, taxes and pensions from Afrikans and creating generational poverty are international crimes

    Oppression is an international crime

    Exploitation is an international crime

    Selling children and abusing them and their parents through a criminal survey are international crimes and fall under HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATIONS.

    Using Slave Codes and Slave Laws from the 16-18th century generationally against Afrikans and their children in Barbados are all international crimes

    so, why are these international crimes being cherrypicked, is it because they are only being practiced against Afrikans in this region and hemisphere.

    since when is a white gay shooting more important under international law than the above.


  6. God Mode Motivation
    God is Love
    Western World Cup protests in media against Qatar for LBGTQ Rights and Workers Rights is hypocritical.
    White Supremacy Racism Slavery and Colonialism abused Human Rights and Workers Rights as does Racial Wars.
    Religions subjugated women and banned homosexuality.
    When West preach Human Rights to protests against other nations it is just disguised prejudice. UK could not even accept Harry and Meghan calling out systemic institutional racism in Royal Family.

    Change, Growth and Development will happen naturally.


    • One person’s rights end where another person’s rights begin.

      My question to the haters of LBGTQ people would be –

      Which right of yours are LBGTQ people taking away from you just by being LBGTQ?

      I have some issues with transpeople trying denying their biological transformation is only partial but that is a peripheral issue.


  7. And David is providing an opportunity to thrash out this issue, one that is very much upon us.

    It is not THE ONLY ISSUE, neither is a non-issue to be ignored.

    I hear walking and chewing gum is possible.


  8. When Herr HitSchwab done with wunna, wunna could all One Love together. I really dislike them using Bob’s words in their perversion and freak show, they could have used something else though. Their private lives and lifestyles are their business, saw Qatar turn back their Gay Pride plane couple days ago, they could not land, had to go to another Arab country and change planes.

    personally i could care less what they do, just don’t impose ya freak shows on other people and their children, and after ya commit suicide, which they do in extremely large and disturbing numbers, the society is stuck with the mess you created.

  9. So…wunna betta get ready for Herr HitSchwab….wunna too love slave masters, ya could not have chosen a betta one.


  10. Recently one dude turned dudette, decided he wanted to look like a Korean woman, got the facial surgery/whatever else was needed and everything. Then shortly after decided he wanted to be a dude again. Now he don’t know what the hell he want to be, soon he will decide he can’t stand this life anymore…a nobrainer.

    They have no respect for other people’s cultures and values.

    “Qatari Doctor Slams West Over American Rainbow-Wearing Journalist

    After American reporter Grant Wahl tweeted about his “unnecessary ordeal” being temporarily detained for wearing a rainbow t-shirt at a World Cup stadium, a Qatari doctor fumed at Western ignorance of the Muslim country’s anti-gay laws.

    “I don’t know when will westerners realize that their values aren’t universal,” tweeted Dr. Nayef Nahar Al-Shammari. “There are other cultures with different values that should be equally respected. Let’s not forget the West is not the spokesperson for humanity.”

    Also on Monday, football governing body FIFA banned teams from wearing “One Love” rainbow armbands promoting LGBTQ+ rights”


  11. Glad they banned that “One Love”corruption, how dare they twist that into something perverted.


  12. White people whitesplaining about Human Rights will get it twisted.
    When they’re challenged about their racism they will talk about Love and then say that it’s racist to call them whites.


  13. @Donna
    Suicide is the final stage of several mental health conditions.
    Many in the LGBTQ—— community, suffer from a very young age. I was involved for many years with a youth mental health body, not in the clinical end, and the number of persons who reached out for help, were disproportionately members of the LGBTQ—— community.
    The many ways they are ostracized in society are too numerous to mention.
    I recall as a school boy, we knew who “they” were and labelled them with all types of distasteful names.
    Yet, Barbados elected an openly gay PM. 30-0? While I’m sure there was some “chatter” in the background, it never made it to the foreground. Is that because our laws treat male and female homosexuality differently?
    The vast majority leave Barbados. Especially if immediate family don’t approve. Life is much easier elsewhere.


    • @NO

      Openly gay you say? Not sure if openly is the correct description.

      We have had and have prominent individuals ‘suspected’ to be gay but Bajan correctness and reverence for the prominent dictated we sit on the fence if these persons remain closeted. In these cases it is business as usual. For those of us ordinary people it is more difficult proposition to avoid abuse.


    • @David, if not “openly” then what good sir! Do you want her to attend the Throne Speech with her partner or maybe stroll into her calypso tent of choice at the partner’s side!

      The lady has never spoken of her sexual preferences and she absolutely never needs to… as that’s her personal business just as we never heard Dipper or Tom or Cammie Tudor or the new Min of Health speak of theirs either! Yet one can say, they were/are as “open” as need be, not so.

      Yes, yes, some of them were married … and this PM has been ‘married’ to herself 😎🤣 all these years. But just as we know that Tom’s extra-marital sexual hijinks (for example) were always with comely ladies … we ALSO know so too are hers, true!

      How much more openly colorful with gaiety can that rainbow be painted, brother!😎

      @Northern, to your point of folks leaving Bim… question for you! Do you know whatever became of Minister Toppin’s eldest (?) brother -the non Kolig attendee?

      I recall the family from my youth for several reasons … briefly I lived in proximity to them; several relatives/friends were at school with them; played some pickup cricket among them and friends etc.

      I also recall that brother left Bim for a US college or whatever and like many in Bim one simply remembers a face and wonders “whatever became of that person”!


    • @NO
      Yet, Barbados elected an openly gay PM. 30-0?
      +++++
      That’s a provocative statement what’s your definition of “openly gay”?

      Bajans for the most part have a laissez faire attitude to gay individuals a live and let live, true there has been name calling but that is in the minority or behind closed doors.

      BTW Barbados has a first, do you know that approx. 50 years ago there was a local event called “Queen of the B’s”? A forerunner to such shows e.g., Rupaul’s Drag race etc.

      That shows the degree of comfort that individuals had in staging a public show with obvious gay persons. How come someone felt comfortable staging a show with gay persons in conservative Barbados in the 1970’s?.


  14. Bushman….you should see the Korean woman, lawd….could not tell the difference between Shim….but ah glad these are embracing their gayhood….makes it easier to swing between that and slavehood.

    i actually have nothing against gays, i find the behavior interesting. highly amusing and informative.


  15. FIFA awarded Qatar the World Cup in 2010
    Australia and UK lost their bids and are still bitching and are still racist dogs
    Obama changed the narrative about Gay Rights in 2015
    Americans and Yanks have been killing muslims since 2001
    they were on the rob for oil
    but changed the narrative in 2010 to warring for Womans Rights
    now they say they kill for LGBT rights with a Q in it now

    • NO,

      I knew that. They mostly kill themselves because of the haters. I have said this before on this very site. But even BU haters continue to call them perverted.

      Imagine knowing that even your own parents would think you dirty if they knew!

      Not everyone is as strong as Peter Wickham.

      I say it again, what are these people to do if they were born that way????

      I am not going to defer to a book that cannot be proven. I am going to defer to what these people say about themselves. And I am going to defer to the evidence of my own eyes.

      A couple of years ago, a teenager killed himself right here in Barbados. My son was shocked because he knew him and had seen absolutely no signs of mental difficulties or depression.

      Then his best friend told my son that he was homosexual. My son hadn’t a clue. Poor young man probably couldn’t face living a lie anymore and couldn’t face the backlash from coming out.

      I have never caused one moment of distress for any homosexual. I will not be a factor in a suicide.

      These know-it-alls can continue to be de facto killers.

      We all know that for some people, “Sticks and stones may break [their] bones but words may [also] harm [them]. If your sense of self is extra fragile, that is all it takes.

      P.S. Elton John has lived his last couple of decades drug free and happy after a long struggle to accept himself.

      People should try putting the Bible aside for a moment and reading life stories. Maybe then they would learn how to be non-judgmental.

      Especially in matter that do not affect their lives in ANY way.

  19. What is non-binary you may ask
    Colorado gay club shooter is NON-BINARY and uses they/ them pronouns, lawyer says – as it’s revealed estranged father is MMA fighter and PORN STAR named ‘Dick Delaware’

    Anderson Lee Aldrich, 22, is suspected of murdering five people and injuring others at Club Q in Colorado on Saturday
    The suspect’s original name, however, is Nicholas Franklin Brink before he changed it to Anderson Lee Aldrich in 2016
    According to a petition, the name change was meant ‘to protect himself and his future from any connections to birth father,’ Aaron Brink
    Brink reportedly left Aldrich’s mother when Anderson was a baby, before taking up MMA and porn, under the alias ‘Dick Delaware’
    He also appeared on camera on the reality shows Divorce Court and Intervention in 2009, when his fiancée tried to get him to stop using crystal meth


  20. There were 2 shooters inside one man

    the male or the female
    a woman scorned in love

    Cool Down the Pace
    Went to a dance last Saturday night
    I was feeling tipsy, the mood was right
    Sight a little daughter steppin’ out the corner
    ‘Cause I feel like dancing all night

    But I told her:
    Cool down the space for me little woman
    You’re coming in to fast for me
    Cool down the space for me little woman
    That’s not how it should be


  22. @ NO
    “Yet, Barbados elected an openly gay PM. 30-0? While I’m sure there was some “chatter” in the background, it never made it to the foreground. Is that because our laws treat male and female homosexuality differently?”

    It is misleading and inaccurate to state that the Prime Minister is “openly” gay. BTW, The term “ openly gay “ is considered to be offensive in the gay LBQT community.
    Furthermore, I don’t recall the Prime Minister ever publicly stating that she is gay.
    I think the PM once brought a libel case against a foreign journalist on this matter.And she was awarded damages.
    To date, the only Barbadian of prominence who has publicly said he is gay is Perter Wickham.
    Peace.
    NB. Please note that I am one hundred percent for gays having all the rights of our heterosexual community including the right to adopt children.

    But every day I pray, oh, yeah

    “The defence team of a suspect facing possible hate crime charges over the fatal shooting of five people at a gay club in Colorado have said they define as non-binary.

    Court papers filed on behalf of Anderson Lee Aldrich, 22, showed public defenders referring to the suspect as Mx Aldrich, noting that they are non-binary and use they/them pronouns.

    Aldrich was taken into custody and treated for injuries after five people were killed and at least 25 others injured at Club Q, an “adult-oriented gay and lesbian nightclub” in Colorado Springs, on the night of 19 November. The suspect was beaten into submission by patrons at the nightclub.”


  27. I wonder what the Doctor who is everyday wondering why he couldn’t reach the top believes about Homos marriage rights granted under Obama


  28. To be clear….adult gay people are now given free rein to practice social perversions….imposing your sex life, life styles on others IS PERVERTED…

    what they do in the privacy of their lives and houses, is no one’s business, their private lives…. but from they make it public and try to ENFORCE it on children and other aduts not so inclined…that is PERVERSION…

    taking Bob Marley’s words and twisting them for their own benefit, when that was never the intention when Bob sang them, that is PERVERSION.


  29. IT IS A FACT…..WE ALL BORN SO, RIGHT? UH LIE? OR IS THIS THE TRUTH SENT FROM ABOVE.

    Hello Dr. GP. I see you have a new moniker.


  30. Have yall ever heard about perverting the course of justice….well the word can be used in that context..

    ..in this case, interfering with our natural inclinations that has been in place literally for MILLIONS OF YEARS for production of the human race etc and replacing it with the unnatural, that produces literally NOTHING except what we are getting now, chaos, death, confusion and a lot of damaged young people…..


  31. “taking Bob Marley’s words and twisting them for their own benefit, when that was never the intention when Bob sang them, that is PERVERSION.”

    Rita Marley owns copyright for Robert Nesta’s estate and would have been paid boo coo dunza for allowing the song to be a gay anthem

    Perhaps you are over thinking repeating same point over and over again

    I wonder rhetorically what enlightened beings spiritual masters in other realms like Bob and Jesus would have to say about Homos and whether to discriminate and hate or appreciate and love all beings like a Buddha or a Shiva


  32. There are many gay nuns and priests in the Church and also in other religions like Buddhism who provide service to God and humankind
    (even though humankind ain’t kind).
    What a Sax


  33. Apparently the english slaves don’t know that there are LAWS OF NATURE….ya masters and their minions made sure you don’t..


  34. “Also on Monday, football governing body FIFA banned teams from wearing “One Love” rainbow armbands promoting LGBTQ+ rights”.”

    any misuse was actually BANNED..

    live your life the best way you see fit for you, but don’t impose it on others, let children and other people make their own choices.

  37. Good morning
    Just warming up, so a few random thoughts to get going.

    1) Setting up strawmen and knocking them over is one of the favorite pastimes of the BU crowd. You can make a sensible statement of how we should threat our LBTQ+ brothers and sister and someone will stretch that statement to cover areas where it was not meant

    2) It seems as if LBTQ+ folks are asking BU regulars to have sex with them. This is the only explanation I can think of to explain why the BU folks have so much passion about the LBTQ+ folks. I ruled out the possibility that the BU folks are closeted and bigoted.

    3) Thank God none of the LBTQ+ folks are of African origin. Wondering if any were, if this would change AOP stance.


  38. It is amusing how a group which is often at the receiving end of racist and bigoted actions would act in the same bigoted manner towards others. In the ugly future that is ahead of us, it is better that we now begin to collect/create allies instead of supporting division. Let us make the tent more inclusive.

    Advances in civil rights came because of the courage of Black Americans and the millions of whites who supported the effort.

    First ‘they’ came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a socialist.
    Then ‘they’ came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a trade unionist.
    Then ‘they’ came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—because I was not a Jew.
    Then ‘they’ came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.
    —Martin Niemöller

    Get over yourself. You are not in the ‘they’. Bring more under the tent.


  39. “but from they make it public and try to ENFORCE it on children and other adults not so inclined”

    Bigoted nonsense. Perhaps, you need to ask yourself why they want to “ENFORCE it” on you. Perhaps they sense a kindred spirit.


  40. “The firing of a homosexual talk show recently from Voice of Barbados because management of the station prefers to operate right of centre should signal to wider society what is to come”

    Really???
    Peter Wickham was a terrible moderator. Antagonistic, passive aggressive, terribly biased and pettier than a cat. These are not the qualities of a good moderator or anyone worth having a civil discussion with. He should have been fired long time ago


  41. ” You can make a sensible statement of how we should threat our LBTQ+ brothers and sister and someone will stretch that statement to cover areas where it was not meant ”

    Don’t threat them
    just be nice
    with nuff niceness


  42. Wonder if people learned any lessons from bullying those to take or not take the vaccines, despite all that is happening which is A LOT, LOT, LOT, i doubt they learned anything.

    some people just never learn, they don’t have the capacity.


  43. Schwarz lesbisch
    Black and mixed-race people experienced persecution and discrimination before, during and after the Third Reich in Germany and elsewhere.
    ‘the nominal grounds on which Blacks were held make it difficult to assess whether and under what circumstances someone could be arrested for simply being Black’
    There were also gays and gypsies in concentration camps.


    • It is amazing, there is an attempt to encourage discussion how tiny Barbados can nurture build an inclusive society without the fallout we are witnessing in countries like the USA, instead we have to filter the nonsense some of your comment.


  44. Discuss for 20 marks

    “A slew of new laws aimed at protecting the disabled, the elderly and other vulnerable groups could be before Parliament by the beginning of 2023.”

    Looks like you are not only targeting LBTQ+, but preying on the elderly, disabled, children ….

    The distraction failed. From the time I saw you acting so outraged and drawing attention to the LBTQ+ group, I knew you were doing wrong elsewhere. Clean yourself up first.

  47. Have you heard the latest joke
    You gotta laff

    Six people killed in shooting at Walmart in Chesapeake, Virginia

    Walmart employee says gunman, who police say killed himself, was manager who opened fire on workers gathered in break room

    he wanted to fire them

    epilogue
    it’s the guns in USA
    there are too many guns
    they weigh a ton


  48. It’s very obvious other very deep seated issues are causing these mass killings, other than the fact that someone is gay. For those who lived or still live in US they would understand, if they had any interactions at all with the people. The place has been a powder keg for decades, with emotions simmering just under the surface. Had that very experience in the corporate work place where people threatened on more than one occasion to bring in a gun and spray the place, sometimes for the most petty of reasons..

  49. Seems I inadvertently struck a chord.
    I wondered if some might ask me, based on Carrington and Lowe platform comments in ’18 if sexual preference wasn’t an issue.
    Instead, it was on if one is open, closeted, or whatever other term can be found.
    @dpd
    I know of whom you speak but have no idea on his history in recent years.


    • @NO

      The blogmaster checked several websites that report ‘openly’ gay heads of state and MAM was missing.


    • David…lol…she is very good at dodging the topic head on. It is really a non-issue.
      Nobody seemed to have tackled my bait, as to the treatment of men vs women in the LGBTQ—— community.


  50. Nowadays media doesn’t specifically say people are gay, they will just mention their partners name so people can figure it out. It is not supposed to be a thing anymore.
    It seems quite common with famous people.


  51. John, why do you bring such silliness to the blog. They were WORKERS, not customers. You are letting the American Democrats take up too much space in your head. That is why you spew such nonsense at times.


    • Only “at times”!

      As one wag would have said: ‘political nonsense lives rent free in his head’!


  52. You cannot say people are Gay due to semantics
    There is now a spectrum and individuals define themselves as they see fit


  53. J’en ai marre with your theatrics; your acting’s a drag
    It’s OK on TV, but you can turn it off
    Your marriage is a tragedy, but it’s not my concern
    I’m very superficial; I hate everything official

    Your private life drama, baby, leave me out
    Your private life drama, baby, leave me out

    Sentimental gestures only bore me to death
    You’ve made a desperate appeal, now save your breath
    Attachment to obligation, regret, shit that’s so wet
    And your sex life complications are not my fascinations

    Your private life drama, baby, leave me out
    Your private life drama, baby, leave me out

    Oh-oh-oh!

    You ask my advice; I say use the door
    But you’re still clinging to somebody you deplore
    And now you want to use me for emotional blackmail
    I just feel pity when you lie; contempt when you cry

    Your private life drama, baby, leave me out
    Your private life drama, baby, leave me out

    Oh-oh-oh!


  54. Never follow the herd into distraction.

    I saw Colin Kapernick take a knee for Afrikan enfranchisement and the end to Afrikan killings in the US, he lost his contract worth millions could not make it to any other teams, was cussed ridiculed and reducedm that was his sacrifice. ..and that was long before the George Floyd public execution…he could have stayed comfortably in his white world of which he can claim half through his DNA…i did not see anyone on BU so up in arms about what happened to him or what happens to their own people on a daily basis…

    only sheep follow a herd.

    btw….real Afrikans should be gravely concerned about all of this, although everyone on our earth should be because they too will be seriously impacted…but carry on smartly with the herd distraction. I actually debated whether to post it here, but for the few who deserve to know, i really wouldn’t.

    “Dr. Francis Boyle issues URGENT WARNING about WHO pandemic treaty designed to enslave & exterminate humanity.”

    “Situation Update, Nov 22, 2022 – WHO pandemic treaty in FINAL stages, would unleash GLOBAL medical DICTATORSHIP”


  55. read again: this is what your traitor misleaders are promoting as puppets for which ever slave master they signed on with.

    “Dr. Francis Boyle issues URGENT WARNING about WHO pandemic treaty designed to enslave & exterminate humanity.””

    after that ya won’t have to worry who is gay, who isn’t, who should be embraced and included..

    .it will be all about WHO.

    then yall will see just how much time ya wasted on useless shallow crap.


  56. “…i did not see anyone on BU so up in arms about what happened to him or what happens to their own people on a daily basis…”

    the third world ghetto mind reinvents narratives to place themselves as the wise leaders


  57. William…the results of when ya FAILED…

    assured FAILURE prompts double speak reasoning and weasling..people have been fighting that climate change battle for decades while wunna was deep in the bowels of tourism dis and tourism dat….wunna is newbies……

    I remember when i posted on here about seeing the tourism related and climate damage to the South Pacific islands over 20 years before in a documentary at the Air & Space museum in Queens, i was ridiculed and laughed at by government fowls and that was not even 3 years ago..yet here they are claiming leadership roles…

    “We are one of the frontline countries in relation to climate change. We have been pushed on to those frontlines not by our own actions but by the actions of others. It is a frontline from which we cannot escape and we are addressing a cost of climate that we can ill afford. ”

    according to what i read, wunna cahn get no 50-100 billion dollars unless there is a serious disaster on the island which no one wants, not for colored paper or any other reason…and the other fairytale failed, so ah guess ya gotta keep on climate advocating, not a bad job really.


  58. “the third world ghetto mind reinvents narratives to place themselves as the wise leaders.”

    How is Sri Lanka going these days, i could not even remember the name, had to google it.

    “Sri Lanka at Brink of Humanitarian Crisis
    Financial Partners Should Support Basic Needs, Promote Respect for Rights”

    I am hardly on BU these days, ya got the platform for yaself and still ya can’t lead.

    btw…i post useful information i deem necessary last to the blog these days….natural leaders don’t need to be present.


  59. The Colorado shooter looks a lot like the dude who slaughtered his parents some years ago, even the family dog, he also gender identified as they. we, us or some such.

    History will identify all the frankenstein monsters that were created in this era…


  60. Same thing plays out daily across the US…always a threat if they lose their jobs they will shoot up the place instead of looking for another one….

    mental illness is a real thing and it seems more than half the population suffers with it..

    “Joshua Johnson, a former Walmart employee who worked as a maintenance worker at the store until 2019, said that the 31-year-old had given a harrowing warning about what he could do if he ever lost his job.

    “He said if he ever got fired from his job he would retaliate and people would remember who he was,” Mr Johnson told CNN.”


  61. This is what Hiel HitSchwab is getting for bragging, all the Disciples everywhere will be exposed and hunted down by their peers. Apparently it is well known who all of their cult members are…

    ..I don’t know none of dem, don’t want to know them either, i don’t run in those circles bosie…this guilt by association thing is real, and too many people are mentioning le guilletin….

    ““Senator Malcolm Roberts: I Call For Australia To Reject The World Economic Forum’s Great Reset And Instead Mount A Great Resist

    “World Economic Forum crook and mastermind Klaus Schwab bragging about penetrating the cabinets of western democracies with his young global leaders. Some Klaus Schwab disciples are in this Senate, and one is in the cabinet.”

    “One Nation will resist exposing our children to adult sexual content in their libraries and school textbooks… One Nation will resist the dehumanization of women through genderless language that erases the very concept of a woman and a mother… One Nation will resist the reduction of sex to a soul-destroying, meaningless transaction… One Nation will resist the war on farming that seeks to destroy family farms””


  62. So based on this new development, curious minds are asking, was COP27 just a scam, designed to perp a 2.78 trillion dollar heist and push the continent into permanent poverty.

    I take it everyone will now get sued, don’t they just make you tired.

    “Greta Thunberg Sues Sweden for Climate Inaction

    Over 600 young people in Sweden, including activist Thunberg, filed a lawsuit against Stockholm – requiring it undertakes its “fair share” of global measures to keep greenhouse gas emissions consistent with the Paris Agreements goals.

    There has never been such a large-scale case in the Swedish legal system”, Ida Edling, a member of the Aurora org behind the lawsuit told AFP.

    It follows a high-profile case in the Netherlands, where the country’s highest court ruled in 2019 that the govt had a legal obligation to take action to mitigate global warming. “


  63. Criminals are not born that way and criminality affects THE WHOLE SOCIETY.

    What consenting adults do in their bedrooms does not directly affect my life. It seems to affect the lives of PERVERTED CHRISTIANS who are obsessed with sex and all things sexual.

    Never did a thing to me.

    Again I say, put aside the “book” written by many men and realise that “THE LAWS OF NATURE” created these people.

    Also, it is absurd to say that LBGTQ people are trying to force their way of life on others and their children when all they are trying to do is have them acknowledge their existence and afford them equal rights.

    Does telling a child that homosexuals exist make the child homosexual?????

    How irrational can you lot be?????!!!!!


  64. You agreed when Caswell said that he can walk and chew gum. He can be concerned about Cuban nurses and Bajan nurses at once. But you think that we cannot walk and chew gum also.

    We can be and actually ARE concerned with racism, sexism, classism and all “isms and schisms” at the same time.

    ANYONE who claims that we are not concerned and have not spoken out against racism is a liar!

    Equal rights for all! Only a few old farts on this blog are against it.


    • What are these equal rights you speak of.
      You like liberals and feminist confuse rights and privileges
      I’ll make it easy, name 1 right the alphabet crew is denied


  65. There is definitely a worldwide epidemic, more so in industrialized countries.

    “At Least 3 Dead, 11 Wounded as 16-year-old Shoots Up Two Schools in 🇧🇷

    The ex-student opened fire on a group of teachers first, killing two women and wounding nine. He then proceeded to a nearby school where he killed a young girl and injured two others, authorities in Espirito Santo said.

    Footage aired on Brazilian media showed the teen dressed in military-style camouflage. Officials claim he had a swastika on his fatigues and used two handguns, both registered in his father’s name – who is a serving policeman.

    Following his arrest, 3 days of national mourning have been announced with Brazilian president-elect Lula, who takes office on January 1, calling it an “absurd tragedy.”


  66. Am in total agreement here.Though i dont take sides in politics i see this as pretty lenient, in certain Afrikan countries just displaying your gay attributes are grounds for 10 years in prison immediately, no in betweens. And the way the west is distortinng things Afrika should adopt that throughout the continent to preserve the rights of women and children, their rightton observe the laws of nature. No one can survive a gay only world, it must be regulated.

    Have your gay life if you must but do not ever dare try to turn our world into a gay world, or disrespect the laws of nature to feel better about yourself. You will be beaten with the rod of correction.

    “The lower house of Russia’s parliament has passed the final reading of a bill that bans the promotion of “LGBT propaganda” to children, expanding on a law that was adopted in 2013.

    Under the legislation, any attempt to promote homosexuality, including in movies, books or advertising, could incur a severe fine.
