Homosexual Lawmakers Abuse Legal System to Abuse Minors
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   |   11.30.22
Leftist boomers and their ideological spawn together have created the worst generations, shameful heirs of a noble legacy hard-won by our forebears. Leftist boomers, taking their cues from pervert Alfred Kinsey, hedonist man-child Hugh Hefner, and addled Timothy Leary, ushered in the drug and sexual revolutions... They believe their Deep Thoughts, intense feelings, and overactive groins determine morality...

By Laurie Higgins   |   11.23.22

By Laurie Higgins   |   10.11.22
Recently, various children’s hospitals across the nation have been under fire for engaging in experimental cross-sex hormone-doping on gender confused teens—some effects of which are risky and irreversible—and for performing mutilating surgeries on the healthy sexual anatomy of minors.

Stacey Abrams Wore Her Tin-Foil Hat in Public
By Laurie Higgins   |   09.30.22
