For a paragon of irony, look no further than the antics of the LGBTI lobby: supporters of the “anti-bullying” Safe Schools program harassed and threatened a hotel after it had accepted a reservation for an event seeking to discuss the program. Without a doubt, the irony is extreme.
According to The Australian, the protestors resorted to verbal attacks and aggressive behavior – a ringing endorsement for their “tolerance and acceptance” agenda:
Arrow on Swanston, in Carlton, had agreed to host an Australian Christian Lobby event tonight with speakers discussing Safe Schools and gender reassignment. Before the event, the hotel received harassing phone calls and online threats that called the ACL a hate group and condemned the business for associating with them.
About 30 people blocked the entrance to the hotel tonight, forcing police to escort attendees through their makeshift cordon. The protest had started silently armed only with signs but turned into a war of words and accusations of assault.
The bullies got their way, with the majority of attendees successfully prevented from entering the building by those who – with faces obscured – intimidated the group:
The protesters, several of whom had their faces covered with bandanas, managed to keep the majority of the attendees out of the event.
It shouldn’t come as a surprise that advocates of the insidious Safe Schools program turned to violence to make their view of the event known. The event in question was actually a seminar, featuring the Foundation Chair of Paediatrics and Child Health for Western Sydney University’s School of Medicine, Dr John Whitehall, who counsels doctors and parents to “watch and wait” before administering transgender medical procedures to children. But his cautious approach to drastic and irreversible changes being made to vulnerable children was seemingly too much for his detractors:
Transgender activist Regan Bleechmore said Dr Whitehall had advocated for the “wait and see” approach where treatment was withheld from children with gender dysphoria. “We will be there to remind the ACL: we are not your political football,” she said. “We are human beings and we will not tolerate hate speech. “The ‘LGBTI political agenda’ wants people of all genders, sexes and sexualities to be fully accepted and we are entirely unapologetic about that.”
Bleechmore seems to completely miss the fact that these protestors were in fact the ones engaging in hate speech. This whole episode further proves that the LGBTI lobby is silencing medical professionals who dare to speak out against pushing hormones and transgender procedures on children.
In order to justify their emotion-driven agenda, the LGBTI lobby tries to hide the proven risks and long-term consequences of transgender medical practices. As rich as the irony is, the danger is real. Feeding impressionable young children false ideas about gender and transgender consequences.
The protest on Swanson Hotel is proof that the LGBTI lobby does not want the truth about transgender practices to be exposed. For the sake of our children, we must continue to fight to protect our societal definition of marriage, which in turn, protects the importance and truth about gender. The LGBTI lobby will undoubtedly continue to employ bullying tactics and violence to further their agenda, but no matter what they attempt, they will never change the truth about the consequences of transgenderism.
