    Suburban Illinois Voters Stick Dagger Through Left’s Prized Degeneracy by 40-Point Margin

    Published on

    On election day, there were more issues on the ballot than candidates, and citizens of a St. Louis, Illinois, suburb spoke up in favor of a controversial proposal.

    “Shall tax-supported libraries and schools promote drag queen events to minors?”

    Voters in Glen Carbon, Illinois, were asked this question, according to The Federalist.

    The initiative was defeated by a 40 point majority after 69 percent of voters opposed it, sending a strong message to radical leftist authorities that their municipality was not interested in fostering degeneracy.

    A number of residents, including pastors, spoke out and fought to have the question included on the ballot this year after two libraries hosted drag show events during the summer.

    Pastor Heath Curtis in the area asked, “If sexualizing and sexually grooming children isn’t your bright line for the church to speak publicly, I want to know what your bright line is.”

    People who work at libraries and other groups have defended these drag events.

    According to Christine Gerrish, director of the Glen Carbon Library, ““I have to say they were some of the best-attended programs of the summer,” KSDK reported.

    “We had 60 people for the adult program and around 50 for story time.”

    According to The Federalist, the story time program specialized to children, with advertising specifically focusing on “toddlers.”

    Gerrish added that the drag queen program was considered as a method to increase interest in the library. The library frequently hosts programs with roughly 10 attendees, he said.

    Christopher Rufo, an investigative journalist who has written about the causes and purposes of such events, claims that “The purpose … is to subvert the system of heteronormativity, which includes childhood innocence, and reengineer childhood sexuality from the ground up.”

    Kurt Prenzler, the chairman of the Republican Party in Madison County, worked to get the question on the ballot in an effort to show voters where their tax dollars were going. Thankfully, voters in one Illinois suburb decided against allowing public schools and libraries to “promote drag queen events to minors,” but this is only a little triumph.

    Such incidents seem to be a component of the left’s larger campaign against parental oversight of their children’s education.

    Failed Democratic gubernatorial candidate of Florida Charlie Crist and an endorsement from the Miami Herald made the argument that Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis “gave parents an outsize[d] voice in their children’s education,” Fox News reported.

    Thankfully, Floridians stood up for their principles, earning DeSantis a landslide victory.

    Across the country, parents are standing up to the radical left’s culture war on American family values. But they cannot do it alone. CONTINUE READING…
