A student who was the victim of a media demonization campaign after he protested against a ‘Drag Queen Storytime’ event in Brisbane, Australia has committed suicide.

University of Queensland president Wilson Gavin was one of a crowd of demonstrators to descend on Brisbane City Council Library during the protest on Sunday.

21-year-old Gavin can be seen on videos of the protest shouting “drag queens are not for kids.”

In a Facebook post after the protest, he said that the demonstration was a show of support for Queensland Opposition Leader Deb Frecklington, who had criticized unisex toilets, and a stand against “politically correct rubbish.”

The protest was roundly condemned by the media, Federal MPs and celebrities, including The Veronicas star Jessica Origliasso. After the event, Gavin faced personal harassment and ridicule.

Large news outlets like ABC characterized the demonstration as an attack on the children, rather than a defense of their innocence, demonizing Gavin in the process.

Police were called out to an incident on Monday morning just after 7am and Gavin was found found with critical injuries having taken his own life.

Diamond Good-Rim, one of the participants of the Drag Queen Storytime event, said he was “deeply saddened from the news today” but then made reference to Facebook posts in support of him not Gavin, stating, “”The support that I have received today on social media has been phenomenal and I thank everyone for their support and kind words.”

University of Queensland senator Drew Pavlou paid tribute to Gavin, saying he was “at his core a very kind person that cared for others.”

“He was hilarious and a riot to be around, his fame will always remain legendary,” said Pavlou.

Writer Satyajeet Marar celebrated Gavin’s fearlessness, saying he would vehemently defend his opinions despite their controversial nature.

“Brave and admirable traits while most of us in this generation spend years obsessing over what others think of us and worrying about whether expressing our opinions will cause people to dislike us,” said Marar.

Biden Says Voters Don’t Need to Know Who His SCOTUS Pick Will Be

“They will if I’m elected.”

Joe Biden says that voters don’t have the right to know who his Supreme Court nomination will be until after he wins the presidency.

The exchange happened during a campaign stop earlier today when Biden accused Donald Trump of trying to change the subject by focusing on who the former Vice President would pick to replace the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

“Should voters know who you’re going to appoint?” Biden was asked.

“No they don’t but they will if I’m elected, they’ll know in plenty of time,” he responded.

The remark is likely to prompt a wave of criticism given that the identity of any potential nominee will become a defining factor of the last 6 weeks of the election cycle.

Meanwhile, President Trump announced that he would be announcing the name of his candidate on Saturday.

“I will be announcing my Supreme Court Nominee on Saturday, at the White House! Exact time TBA,” he tweeted.

Trump’s shortlist has been reduced to five, with the favorite being Amy Coney Barrett since her nomination would be seen as the least controversial.

Democrats are desperate to delay the nomination until after the presidential election in November.

A Suffolk County Community College (SCCC) Professor was apparently caught on video lecturing students that they should not vote for President Trump in November, claiming that he is taking away fundamental rights and turning America into a “dictatorship type situation”. The College has not fired the professor, only ‘reassigning’ her until an investigation is concluded.

It is claimed that Women Studies lecturer Janet Gulla was secretly filmed by a student ordering the class to “look into their heart” and not vote for Trump.

“For four years because that’s what people say, ‘Give him a chance, give him a chance’ Well he’s had four freaking years of a chance and he’s done a crap job and he’s really ruining our country,” the voice on the recording, apparently Gulla’s, is heard saying.

“If any of you do think Trump, you know is a good person, I beg you to not only go into your heart’s center and think about this a little more,” Gulla continues.

“Pull up all the stuff that he’s been doing to our country. Taking away so many of our rights, trying to turn this into more of a you know, dictatorship type of situation,” the Professor adds.

The recording emerged on Facebook last week, reportedly posted by the father of the student who recorded it.

The poster wrote “This was my daughter’s humanities teacher on the second day of class at Suffolk community college!!!! This is complete bull**** and not what we are paying to send our kids to school for!!! Professor Janet Gulla you have no business telling these kids who to vote for and we will be calling the school tomorrow!!! You should be terminated on the spot!!!”

SCCC Director of Communications Drew Biondo told reporters that an investigation is underway and that Gulla has been reassigned.

In a statement, Biondo noted that “Suffolk County Community College encourages any open and diverse discussion and exchange of ideas. The College does not, however, condone electioneering by faculty in the classroom.”

Video: Biden AGAIN Says Millions Of Americans Have Died From Coronavirus

“It’s estimated that 200 million people have died—probably by the time I—finish this talk”

For at least the third time, Joe Biden has claimed that millions of Americans have died from the coronavirus.

During speech honoring Ruth Bader Ginsburg Sunday, Biden blamed President Trump for the spread of the virus and stated “It’s estimated that 200 million people have died—probably by the time I—finish this talk.”

Then literally seconds after making the wildly inaccurate statement, Biden said that six million people have been infected.

If 200 million people had died of the virus, it would equate to around two-thirds of the country.

This is going beyond mere gaffe territory now, as Biden has made similar climbs on multiple occasions.

In May he claimed that the virus had cost the “Lives of millions of people, millions of people”:

One month later in June, Biden said that 120 million Americans had died:

President Trump commented “That’s a serious error. That is not a permissible type of error. There is something going on.”

“It’s wonderful to say I feel sorry or that’s too bad, because I do, except we are talking about the presidency of the United States, and it is just not acceptable,” Trump added.
