It’s as if we’re different species.
Anchorage Assembly members Christopher Constant, Kameron Perez-Verdia, Felix Rivera, Meg Zaletal, Forrest Dunbar, Pete Petersen, and Suzanne LaFrance are clearly wired differently. So is acting Anchorage Mayor Austin Quinn-Davidson.
But so are most hard-core Leftists. It’s difficult to understand why they believe the way they do. It appears to me Leftists typically take whatever is true and believe the complete opposite. Up is down and down is up with this crowd. How can one possibly relate or reason with such a creature?
For example: During an ABC News town hall meeting in October, Pennsylvania voter Mieke Haeck asked former vice-president Joe Biden if elected, would he reverse actions by President Donald Trump that could negatively impact her 8-year-old transgender daughter.
Biden told Haeck he would change the law and then responded: “The idea that an 8-year-old child or a 10-year-old child decides, you know I decided I want to be transgender. That’s what I’d like to be. It would make my life a lot easier. There should be zero discrimination.”
Whether Biden actually believes an 8-year-old child’s life would be easier if they identified as the opposite of the sex they were born into is unknown. The media never challenges Biden, so we’ll never know.
Biden most likely condoned transgenderism for an 8-year-old knowing full well those now controlling the Democrat Party are hardcore Leftists like Constant, Perez-Verdia, Rivera, Zaletal, Dunbar, Petersen, LaFrance, and Quinn-Davidson.
One thing we know about the Hard Left, there is no wiggle room when it comes to disagreeing with their madness. If you question the wisdom of allowing a child to change their gender, you are a backward, bigoted, unenlightened hater of all things deemed sacred by Leftists.
Constant, Perez-Verdia, Rivera, Zaletal, Dunbar, Petersen, LaFrance, and Quinn-Davidson made sure there’d be no disagreement in Anchorage when it comes to children changing sexes. They passed a law signed by former Mayor Ethan Berkowitz, fining any counselor $500 per day if that counselor discouraged children from pursuing a new gender identify.
Apparently, Constant, Perez-Verdia, Rivera, Zaletal, Dunbar, Petersen, LaFrance, and Quinn-Davidson fancy themselves better-trained counselors than those actually trained to do the job.
The most insidious part of this law is it offers cover for pedophiles molesting children. If a child knows they can’t get help from a counselor with unwanted gender confusion or same-sex desires, they’d be less likely to reach out for help. It’s no secret many children with gender confusion issues and same-sex attraction developed those desires after being molested by an adult. It’s not politically correct to say such a thing but we all know it’s true. And since it’s true, a true Leftist must take the opposite position.
The good news is the 11th Circuit Federal Court in Florida ruled as unconstitutional a ban for counselors to help children overcome same-sex attraction and gender confusion. Other federal jurisdictions have upheld the ban. The matter will most likely end up before the U.S. Supreme Court.
The idea Anchorage is now run by such crazies as those believing it’s healthy for a child to transition to the gender they were not born into raises another question: Is Anchorage now a loony town? I don’t believe so.
Radicals currently running the city is a relatively new phenomenon. It coincidently began after the Assembly enacted mail-in voting.
We know mail-in voting led to the stealing of the presidency for Biden. Anyone with any sense knows that. Whether the Trump legal team will be able to prove it during the ever-shrinking time frame allotted is another question entirely.
Anchorage Assembly Member Jamie Allard told me she’s working on a ballot referendum prohibiting mail-in voting in Anchorage. She’ll need 14,000 signatures by the end of February to get the measure on the ballot in April. Allard says that seems unlikely and will shoot for the fall of 2022 instead.
Allard says approximately 31,000 municipal ballots were undeliverable this past election. That’s a lot of loose ballots floating around town. Allard says she received four ballots at her home. Two for her and her husband and two more for their former tenants. Allard says she and her husband could have voted twice if they wanted to. They did not.
Allard says her friend down the street got five ballots this year. One for her and her husband. The rest for former residents of the address.
One woman called my show this year telling me of going to the post office and while waiting in line seeing several ballots sitting on top of a trash can. The bottom line is mail-in voting floods the city with ballots. Of course, those who cheat will use it as an opportunity to do so.
We know why Democrats work so hard to make it easier to cheat during elections and are obsessed with mail-in voting. Their policies are crazy and aren’t palatable with the majority of voters. Cheating is the only way they can win.
We have to go back to showing up at the polls, providing an ID and then walking into the booth and filling in the bubble for the candidate of our choice. Enough with the mail-in voting that is ripe with fraud and corruption. If we don’t change the way we vote in Alaska’s largest city, Anchorage will remain Crazy Town.
