(Republicaninformer.com)- In remarks at the White House on Tuesday to commemorate the “Respect for Marriage Act,” Vice President Kamala Harris defended LGBTQ+ icon Harvey Milk.
In addition to being admired by the LGBTQ+ community for being “the first openly gay man to hold political office in California,” Milk was renowned for his sexual preference for male adolescents involved in drug-related problems.
Harris told the crowd that the “great Harvey Milk” once said, and I quote, ‘rights are won only by those who speak up.’ And because you spoke up, marriages are safer, and Joe Biden is president.”
Milk was referred to as a “pederast” by Matt Barber of the Liberty Counsel in a 2013 interview. That man, according to Barber, “had a sexual appetite for teenage boys as young as 15 years old” when he was in his mid-30s.
Based on his rape of teenage boys, he said Harvey Milk was clearly and unquestionably evil. It is mind-boggling that our U.S. government would honor and recognize him as some kind of hero.
Jack Galen McKinley, a 16-year-old boy with mental health issues who also had suicidal tendencies, and Milk were known to date.
It was not a healthy relationship; when McKinley first started seeing Milk in late 1964, he was only 16 years old, according to the pro-LGBTQ+ publication All Gay Long. When Milk did not give him enough attention, he occasionally threatened suicide because he was prone to depression.
Randy Shilts, Milk’s biographer, later acknowledged that Harvey “always had a penchant for young waifs with substance abuse problems.”
According to Shilts, McKinley, who was 16 years old, was seeking a father figure of some sort. At 33, Milk was beginning a new life, but he could hardly have anticipated the unexpected path his new love would take him.
One and only “Drag Queen Story Hour” performer “Marti Cummings,” a self-described “non-binary drag artist” and leftist LGBTQ-supporting political activist, were also present at the White House celebration on Tuesday.
Mr. “Cummings” spends his free time dressing up in drag to read and dance for young children when he isn’t hanging out with the US President.
The drag artist Mr. “Cummings” has drawn criticism in light of his visit for a previous tweet in which he wrote, “The kids are out to sing and suck d!”
