Student Demonized For Protesting Against ‘Drag Queen Storytime’ Commits Suicide

Large news outlets characterized demonstration as an attack on children.

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.

Survey Finds People Who Identify as Left-Wing More Likely to Have Been Diagnosed With a Mental Illness

The data speaks for itself.

Published

on

A new survey of more than 8,000 people has found that those who identify with left-wing political beliefs are more likely to have been diagnosed with a mental illness.

Ann Coulter’s “liberalism is a mental disorder” catchphrase has become something of a clichéd meme, but the data appears to support it.

Carried out by Slate Star Codex, the online survey collected a wealth of data from respondents about their education, demographic, lifestyle and political views.

The results show that people who occupy the farther left end of the political spectrum are more likely to have been “formally diagnosed with depression, borderline personality disorder, bipolar disorder, or schizophrenia.”

In addition, the results show that the highest percentage of respondents (38%) who admit being diagnosed with forms of mental illness also identify politically as Marxists.

In comparison, just 12.1% of conservatives say they have been diagnosed with a mental disorder.

While the survey is by no means scientific, it does give an insight into how disturbed people are more likely to be attracted to fringe leftist beliefs, which in a lifestyle sense usually encourage degeneracy and a lack of moral responsibility.

“It’s not a myth that left-wingers are more mentally ill,” said conservative commentator Milo Yiannopoulos. “And it’s not a surprise the internet has elevated crazy people with too much time on their hands to a central place in the national discourse. The “social web” is a social fucking catastrophe.”

“The Silence Was Deafening”: Trump Jnr. Rages at Media Ignoring Attempted Terror Attack on Trump Supporters

“It’s truly disgusting and honestly I’m getting sick of it.”

Published

on

Donald Trump Jnr. said the “silence was deafening” after a leftist attempted to run over Trump supporters during a voter registration event in Jacksonville as he slammed the media for barely covering the story.

27-year-old Gregory Timm drove his van into a pro-Trump Republican voter registration drive tent at a Walmart on Saturday and was subsequently seen smiling during a court appearance.

According to the police report, Timm made videos both before and during the attempted attack. He later told authorities that he hated Trump and that “someone had to take a stand.”

While a handful of mainstream networks reported on the incident, they gave it nowhere near the attention it would have received if a Trump supporter had attempted a similar attack against Joe Biden or Elizabeth Warren supporters.

During an appearance on Fox News, Donald Trump Jnr. said “the silence was deafening.”

“The violence against conservatives and Republicans and Trump supporters is so prevalent and so underreported if at all,” said Trump.

“If the shoe was on the other foot and that was some sort of pretend crazy, right-wing, alt-right whatever person doing it to a Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren (event), it would be the number one news story all over America, there’s not a journalist that wouldn’t be covering it ad nauseam for weeks, but when it happens to a Trump supporter…it’s getting to the point of tacit complicity from the left and from the media which are basically the same thing at this point,” he added.

Trump went on to say that if the roles were reversed, the story would have been bigger than anything going on right now, including the Democratic primaries.

“It’s truly disgusting and honestly I’m getting sick of it and so are Americans,” said Trump Jnr.

“Because they won’t cover it they’ve almost started condoning these sort of attacks and it’s truly disgusting,” he added, before challenging someone within the media to “have the guts to actually say enough is enough.”

Suspect Who Ploughed Vehicle Through Voter Registration Tent Admitted Anti-Trump Motive

Told police “someone had to take a stand.”

Published

on

The suspect who drove a vehicle through a voter registration tent occupied by Trump supporters in Jacksonville admitted to police that he had an anti-Trump motive and told authorities “someone had to take a stand.”

27-year-old Gregory Timm drove his van into a pro-Trump Republican voter registration drive tent at a Jacksonville Walmart on Saturday and was subsequently arrested and charged with aggravated assault, criminal mischief and driving with a suspended license.

According to an arrest report obtained by Action News Jax, Timm told police he drove his van through the tent because “someone had to take a stand.”

He also showed police a video he made of himself driving towards the tent as the victims stood in front of it. The video ended before Timm actually drove into the tent, a moment he described to police as “the good part.”

Timm also told police he made a video of himself prior to driving through the tent, but this video has not been made public.

“The suspect advised that he does not like President Trump,” according to the police report. Timm “did not show any emotion, recorded the aftermath of the incident and gave an obscene gesture,” according to Action News Jax.

“What’s clear is, this individual drove up to a tent and was clearly registering voters with Donald Trump’s name and attire around them. And drove a vehicle at volunteers that’s what we know, looks pretty political to me,” said Mayor Lenny Curry.

Nobody was injured during the incident, although victims were left in a state of severe shock.

Will the media now dig through Timm’s social media history to discover who radicalized him into attempting this act of terror?

Or will the story completely disappear by the end of the week?

Don’t hold your breath.
