A 9-year-old’s performance in drag at an Ohio bar has led state lawmakers to introduce legislation to ban such activity as “endangering children”:
House Bill 180, introduced earlier this month by state Rep. Tim Schaffer, comes after online outrage over a video of Jacob Measley of suburban Toledo accepting money from onlookers while performing at a drag charity event held at a Fairfield County bar last December.
Schaffer, a Lancaster Republican, said in a statement that “while there is a strong consensus in the community that this situation is a very bad example of parenting,” Ohio currently has no laws prohibiting minors from appearing in such shows.
Under the bill, adults who stage performances “in which a child simulates sexual activity” or “appeals to prurient interest” could be charged with a first-degree misdemeanor, punishable by up to six months in jail and a $1,000 for a first offense.
In addition, if the performance took place at a bar or other establishment that serves alcohol, state officials would revoke the business’ liquor license.
“Given our heightened focus on human trafficking and the role money plays in trafficking children, I knew I had to take action to make sure this activity does not occur again,” Schaffer stated. “We can do better to protect innocent children and we must do better.”
But Jerri Measley, Jacob’s mother, argues that her child’s drag appearances are not sexual in nature, telling the Toledo Blade that critics have “grossly warped” the purpose of Jacob’s performances.
And we should believe these queers and their enablers that there is “nothing sexual” about young children participating in these degenerate drag shows. We are reassured that queers are just like everyone else and they can be trusted implicitly with the health and safety of our young, impressionable children. Why would anyone think that a sodomite who likes to watch young children perform in drag has any questionable attraction to them?
But what’s at issue here is that we even need a new law to prohibit this kind of sexual exploitation of children. Clearly, if we had a society based on strong Christian principles as our Founding Fathers envisioned, then we would have no need to pass any such laws because no one would be engaged in this degeneracy. As long as we continue to deny that America is a Christian nation, we will rely on more and more draconian laws to force everyone to tolerate each other’s chosen degeneracy rather than outlaw that degeneracy.
Letter to the Touro Synagogue of Newport Rhode Island dated 18 August 1790:
“While I received with much satisfaction your address replete with expressions of esteem, I rejoice in the opportunity of assuring you that I shall always retain grateful remembrance of the cordial welcome I experienced on my visit to Newport from all classes of citizens.
The reflection on the days of difficulty and danger which are past is rendered the more sweet from a consciousness that they are succeeded by days of uncommon prosperity and security.
If we have wisdom to make the best use of the advantages with which we are now favored, we cannot fail, under the just administration of a good government, to become a great and happy people.
The citizens of the United States of America have a right to applaud themselves for having given to mankind examples of an enlarged and liberal policy—a policy worthy of imitation. All possess alike liberty of conscience and immunities of citizenship.
It is now no more that toleration is spoken of as if it were the indulgence of one class of people that another enjoyed the exercise of their inherent natural rights, for, happily, the Government of the United States, which gives to bigotry no sanction, to persecution no assistance, requires only that they who live under its protection should demean themselves as good citizens in giving it on all occasions their effectual support.
It would be inconsistent with the frankness of my character not to avow that I am pleased with your favorable opinion of my administration and fervent wishes for my felicity.
May the children of the stock of Abraham who dwell in this land continue to merit and enjoy the good will of the other inhabitants—while every one shall sit in safety under his own vine and fig tree and there shall be none to make him afraid.
May the father of all mercies scatter light, and not darkness, upon our paths, and make us all in our several vocations useful here, and in His own due time and way everlastingly happy.
This letter is in response to the rabbi of the Touro synagogue’s letter to President Washington inquiring if the president thought that Jews could expect the right to worship and to experience equal status as citizens of the new country.
The United States is not and never has been a theocracy. It is a secular nation and has been from the beginning. While it may have some Christian roots it also has Jewish and Muslim roots as well as the religious beliefs of the hundreds of indigenous nations that came before the first Christian, Leif Erickson stepped foot on American soil. Look to the writings of founding fathers William Penn and Roger Williams as well as George Washington, John Adams, Benjamin Franklin who all were liberals. George Washington even uses the word “liberal” in his letter to the Jews of Newport and certainly defined it the same way liberal is defined today. Our founding fathers may seem to some modern people to have been conservative but for their time they were radical left wing liberals out to change the world starting with their own new country.
Two of my ancestors affixed their signatures to the Declaration of Independence. Three voted as elected legislators to ratify the Constitution and two more voted to ratify the Bill of Rights. 17 of my ancestors fought in the American Revolution. two died in the cause of freedom in that war including one Jew. 7 more of my ancestors fought in the War of 1812 confirming our independence. I am not myself a Jew but I will stand in defense of their rights as full equals under the law with rights no greater nor lesser than those of any Christian. The United States is NOT a Christian nation nor has it ever been. It is a Secular nation and has been since July 4 1776. No official document either the Declaration of Independence nor the Constitution or any amendment in any way refers to this nation as a Christian nation.
If you have Jewish ancestry, then you are Jewish in your worldview whether you “identify” as Jewish or not. Your knowledge that you have Jewish ancestry requires you to justify a “liberal” Jewish worldview that includes mixed race people like yourself in White nations. It’s nothing to be ashamed about, but it obviously has a huge influence on you because you admitted it here in order to justify or prove you liberal point of view.
Even if some of your ancestors did sign the Declaration of Independence, one of your ancestors violated biblical law–perhaps because of liberal hubris–and race mixed, creating a new “posterity” that would be double-minded because they now served two separate bloodlines. That doesn’t make you a bad person–but it certainly will heavily influence how you choose to see the world–as your comment clearly demonstrates.
As far as the US Constitution goes, remember: what powers aren’t specifically stated by the Constitution is delegated the States in the 10th Amendment, and EVERY one of the original State Constitutions of the 13 colonies specifically identify themselves as Christian. Jews specifically do not like the 10th Amendment because it protects against centralized power–the kind liberals need to create their socialist/liberal utopias.
You live in a formerly Christian nation–and you are greatly deceived it you think for a second that the Founding Fathers would approve of what has happened here under the guise of “liberalism”.
The so-called phrase “separation of church and state” appears nowhere in the U.S. Constitution, Bill of Rights, or even Declaration of Independence, and yet the Jews have successfully made it the law of the land so they can undermine and destroy the country. And we’ve all gone along with the deception and parroted that phrase as if it’s authoritative. We deserve to lose our rights when we ignorantly go along with this treachery.
Who would have ever thought that one day we’d need a law to prohibit children from doing strip tease in front of grown sodomites? Well done, America, you’re well on your way to complete nihilism.
That’s why the U.S. Constitution, ‘the Supreme Law of the Land’, has only enumerated rights and not a list of laws, because as an already Christian society (“in order to form A MORE PERFECT UNION”) our laws were always written IN THE BIBLE. As more external laws got written, America transformed from a Christian Republic and Christian society to an athiest democracy of cultural marxists.
