Illinois Buzzards Want Your Kids
By Laurie Higgins   |   01.11.23

By Laurie Higgins   |   01.06.23
Leftists have redefined “hate.” To them hatred refers to ideas and moral beliefs that they think harm others. So, using that definition, how do leftists hate people? Let's count the ways.

By Laurie Higgins   |   12.21.22
Children are growing up in an America where adults celebrate the dismemberment of children in their mothers’ wombs.

They are growing up where cross-dressing adult men twerk in children’s departments of public libraries, where adults tell children that some women have penises, where adults allow cross-dressing men into locker rooms with young girls and women, where teachers assign pornographic books to minors, and where surgeons profit from cutting off the breasts off 13-year-old girls.

By Laurie Higgins   |   12.01.22
As you read this, remember how many times leftists assured Americans that homosexuals wanted nothing more than to be left alone to do their thing in the privacy of their bedrooms. And remember how they asserted that the legalization of same-sex “marriage” would affect no one, no way, no how.
