Leftists protest conservative’s talk on LGBTQ issues: ‘rhetoric that gets us KILLED’
Activists at the University of Maryland are sounding an alarm of fatality ahead of a Monday lecture set to be given by Daily Wire personality Matt Walsh. The title of his talk is “The War on Reality: Why the Left has set out to redefine life, gender, and marriage.”
Walsh and Young America’s Foundation spokesman Spencer Brown shared an image on Twitter that shows a flyer telling students to stay away from the event and calling the author and speaker a “transphobic shitbag.”
Walsh’s Daily Wire bio describes the writer as “one of the religious Right’s most influential young voices.” He is known for voicing blunt views on Christianity.
The flyer calls the event a “threat to all LGBT+ people” and that he is “not arguing in good faith and advocates for the criminalization and institutionalization of all LGBT+ people.”
“This is the kind of rhetoric that gets us KILLED,” the flyer says. “We will NOT entertain ‘debate’ about whether everyone deserves rights and basic human dignity.”
Leftists at University of Maryland are claiming that my speech tonight might kill them. This is absurd. I usually only ritualistically kill ONE person at my speeches. No need to make such a big deal out of it. pic.twitter.com/ozvYPBAIKq
