our President told a trans immigrant activist to be quiet during a statement about Pride Week
no analogy here, I’m sure
she is an undocumented trans woman from mexico and her name is Jennicet Gutiérrez. obama not only told her to be quiet, but he had her escorted from the white house by secret service officers while his mindless supporters cheered.
okay but she did actually interrupt obama while he was speaking. like i get that
being an actual non-white lgbt+ individual, her voice needs to be heard (and i fully support her cause and intentions), but there’s a time and place for everything and she literally interrupted the president of the united states while he was speaking
plus she said she had to voice her concerns when he “started to get into his speech on how wonderful everything is,” but she countered by chanting “not one more” and “stop the deportations”. as a fellow mexican, i can respect her fighting the good fight for our people but what exactly does her chanting protest slogans do for us in this situation? you really think he’s gonna stop his pride week speech to hold a discussion with her about these subjects in front of an entire crowd of guests?
nice way to twist the situation to paint obama as some transphobic villain though, love the way you leave it vague enough to make people assume that he was in the wrong
