Turning Point USA's Charlie Kirk calls trans people a "throbbing middle finger to god" and "an abomination" in a video released Monday.
I've said it before and I'll say it again: People like Charlie Kirk are openly calling for genocide of Trans people the same way Adolf Hitler called for genocide of Jews. When they tell us who they are, we better believe them.
Yeah? Well, Charlie Kirk is a throbbing you-know-what to God. (Sometimes it's just too easy.)
It’s RED LETTER Gospel. Words of Jesus. Matthew 19:12 “For there are eunuchs who have been eunuchs from birth. And there are eunuchs who have been made eunuchs by other people. And there are eunuchs who have made themselves eunuchs because of the kingdom of heaven. Those who can accept it should accept it.” --- The concept of eunuch, including what was termed natural eunuch was broader in the ancient rhetoric than now. I believe the lesson was, hey, the old customs and authorities don’t have everything covered. Get real. It’s all out there among humans. He also seemed to be saying he recognizes some people will struggle with the reality. Modern religious bigots are not attuned to Jesus.
Charlie's god is an abomination to society.
This intensely hateful rhetoric has no place in a civilized society, and I just hope voters are intelligent enough to see (and deeply fear) where this type of rhetoric leads if followed to its inevitable conclusion.
the pathology of these people would probably be funny if it weren’t so deadly serious c r e e p y
I feel bad because it's terrible, he's the absolute worst... but my brain can't stop going "why *throbbing*?"
Charlie Kirk's God is unworthy of worship and reverence. A petulant child who gives humanity free will but demands they ignore it and worship without question, punishing them with eternal damnation if they don't. I'll roast in Hell over bowing to that tyrant and denying my true self.
Honestly, In a lot of cases I can't help but wonder if it's as much a desire for control or not. And I figure that in some circles, there isn't even necessarily any actual hatred for trans folks for Me. We're just the latest high profile minority to paint a target on. We're convenient. And I'm not sure which insults me more. Being hated, or being a convenient target. There absolutely IS plenty of true blue hate for us. It's out there and very real. But stoking that fire is very much purposefully directed in a lot of cases. Bigots being used for some greater purpose.
Great reporting on a despicable movement.
Having grown up in Roman Catholicism, it's really really really easy to be an abomination against God to these sorts. Like ridiculously easy. It's also why my belief of an almighty Judeo Christian god was extremely dead before I hit double digits in age (and why I got in a lot of trouble in Catholic school). Charlie and his ilk would've been dribbling at the jaws to be inquisitors several hundred years ago, and are just as wrong now as those sorts were then.
There is a significant difference between then and now however: semiautomatics. And a robust and extremely easily utilized communication network available to communities who are marginalized and under assault from outside influences. So, Chuckles, let's give it a go then.
This is a premier example of how far-right Christians have destroyed so many lives with the way they love to weaponize scripture and brutalize those whom they believe outcast and inferior to themselves. It’s so much easier for them to believe they are doing God a favor by hating trans people in his name rather than loving their neighbor as themselves. They don’t have to face their own inner darkness as long as they can feel superior to people who sin differently than they do.
One only has to review his history from college dropout to the repetitive lies from I couldn't get into West Point because it went to a "less qualified person of a diff't gender and persuasion" to false claims about a whole series of topics from human trafficking and French yellow vest mov't to misinformation about Covid, George Floyd, race baiting, climate change and now marked transphobia and advocacy for violence against us. Of course he gets well paid by Turning Point. He is a Goebbel's reincarnate.
Thanks for this story. I agree that TPUSA should be taken seriously, even though I have heard some argue that their influence is waning and they are having a hard time attracting college students. Their "Professor Watchlist" targets professors across the country, for harm and harassment. If nothing else, it is a silent always-on-the-internet threat that suppresses academic freedom. I am on the list for my book about the politicization of trans identity. Putting me on the list basically proves the point of the book. (https://www.professorwatchlist.org/)
Charlie can't admit he wants to be a girl, so we all have to suffer.
Well if it's such a "fck you" to god, he should get off his ass and do something about it.
So far he hasn't, so I'll take that as a sign he supports it. 🤷♂️
Where can one find the Mother Jones emails?
