“Queer Dance Party for Climate Justice” Held In Front of Ivanka Trump’s DC Home
“We are out here to say send a message to protect Mother Earth”
A few hundred people showed up outside Ivanka Trump’s Washington DC home for the “Queer Dance Party for Climate Justice” hosted by WERK for Peace.
Hundreds of people protested in front of Ivanka Trump’s Washington D.C. home on Saturday for “climate justice.”
LGBTQ activists hosted a “dance party” protest to “send the clear message that our climate and our communities matter,” a detailed Facebook event said.
Fox News continues:
A crowd of protesters took to the streets with signs to protest President Donald Trump’s administration’s stance on climate change, the Daily Mail reported.
“The entire Trump Administration has shown a blatant disregard for our planet and its inhabitants,” the event page read. “Also, in case you hadn’t heard, Trump revoked protections for LGBTQ government employees and removed LGBTQ questions from the census.”

According to WUSA9, the protesters are also concerned about the nomination of Neil Gorsuch to the United States Supreme Court.
“His policies have in general worked to desecrate the environment movement,” Firas Nasr said.
. . . . Protesters were also concerned about the possible confirmation of Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch and how he may vote on environmental and LGBT issues.
We’re out here protesting the administration and the choices they are making,” Nasr explained. “Obviously, they chose him. Obviously, the Republican party stopped other candidates in the past. So, we’re here to protest that.”
. . . . “The Republican party at large and specifically the administration should know that the queer community and the queer and trans community are watching,” Nasr said.
Ivanka’s neighbors were not amused.

While I still don’t understand why the left is so happy to be relegated to subgroups and isolated demographic categories, I’d rather see this peaceful, fun, and over-the-top exuberance than the violence and rioting we saw immediately after President Trump’s inauguration.
That said, some are wondering what the gyrating protesters hope to accomplish.

Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.
I find it impossible to believe that these people (and the PRESS) don’t realize that the Obama’s bought a house just DOWN THE STREET from Ivanka’s house.
Why aren’t the Secret Service ALL OVER THESE rabblerousers POSING as “protesters” (who are likely paid, btw)?! Why would the Secret Service etc. let this happen so close to a president’s residence, so close to a sitting President’s family member’s residence?!?!
Also, whose cars are they DANCING ON, and damaging?! Why aren’t they being arrested for destruction of property?!?!
They would never “protest” in front of the Obama’s (i.e. Valerie Jarrett’s) residence…….why is it OK for them to do to ANYBODY’s residence?!?!
Nobody can check the internet and find out who “Mr. Fat butt” is stomping on the expensive sheet metal of some citizens car? Nobody can present this info to the owner of the vehicle and the police?
Come on, let’s help the poor car-owner out!
Besides Mr. FB needs a good exercise plan.
You know, like the kind the have in Club Fed…..
I have just one thing to say: “Oh good Lord.”
Yawn. These protests are becoming so ubiquitous while also becoming more frivolous and without focus. Except for the reality show type of interests that make people even take notice of them, what value do they serve? Certainly there are very few hearts and minds that are changed.
I used to think that these radical “queers” or whatever they want to call themselves today are around simply to make sure the rest of the country knows how disgusting they are. It’s like insurance to make nearly all of the rest of the country certain they made the right choice last November.
Now, it seems they think they have other purposes- these gyrating public-and-private property destroyers are going to educate us all about ‘climate’ and ‘rights’. I’m sorry, I get my important science and constitutional advice from Angelina Jolie and Katy Perry, who needs these fools…
This protest seems so “spontaneous.”
Not to mention FABULOUS!!!
For the life of me, how can these parades and demonstrations do anything but underscore the good judgement of the voters across the heartland of this country who elected Donald Trump?
Nominally sane people would actually prefer a country run by people like this…? While we didn’t really “dodge a bullet” we certainly came away from November 8th with a mere flesh-wound.
amatuerwrangler, these protests aren’t about whatever-the-hell-they-claim. They never are. These protesters are playacting, pretending to stand up to tyranny and oppression. They also desperately trying to get in a little bit of “shock the squares,” because offending people gives meaning to their meaningless lives.
Where are the police dogs?
I call that a target rich environment.
Target for what?
I love this par5…
““His policies have in general worked to desecrate the environment movement,” Firas Nasr said.”
Gorsuch is a judge you tools, judges are NOT policy makers.
To the left, ‘judges’ ARE policy makers: no need for votes, just fascist dictates.
“Climate justice” is almost as inane as referring to abortion as “reproductive freedom”.
Trump, the first President who openly supports Gay marriage.
Hmmm. A “protest” the Muslims didn’t manage to hijack. For, you know, Palestine, or something.
I do have to wonder where they’re busing these fruitcakes in from. I know my fair share of LGBQ types—and even a bona-fide T—and I’m pretty sure that not of one of them is silly enough to think this is a good idea.
Personally, I’m happy to see such absurd and obscene demonstrations together with the mindless and uninformed statements of the demonstrators. Maybe the RNC is secretly supporting such events. If not, perhaps it should. Ivanka and Jared are closet lefties to begin with. This demonstration may not help their commitment to the cause.
Ya know…. there just was nothing wrong with the closet. Some closets were pretty nice. Fabulous antiques, mauve color scheme and take-home from where you worked as a waiter until you finally got that elusive acting job.
I have the utmost sympathy and compassion for people sexually abused as children, but militants like these ought to be chased away. Go, have your dysfunctional sex life somewhere else, where normal children, a/k/a Ivanka’s young kids, won’t be exposed to your dysfunction.
How disgusting, and like the previous commenters, I’d like to know where the police are, and why those damaging property are not arrested!!!!!!!
They need a hickory shampoo.
Did I spy Hilary in that protest group?
Or spy Hilary behind it?
People don’t really want freedom, they want freedom from responsibility.
Let them dance in Iran, I’m sure that’ll improve the climate.
I haven’t noticed a “clear message” coming from the Left other than “we hate Trump, his family and anyone who supports him.”
Fascists don’t have a clear message, other than hate.
Enjoy life: avoid the MSM.
Our nation circles the drain…
No way we’re going to remain 57 – er, 50 states.
Every one of those car dancers needed a ball bat applied to their kneecaps. Or, a lead injection.
I would suggest that these rioters (not protesters) are distantly related to the mob outside of Lot’s house, but we all know how that ended…
Mother Earth has a message for them.
Only a mother could love that.
