Conservative commentator Candace Owens had strong words for parents who bring their kids to events like “drag queen story hour,” saying they should “have their children taken away.”
Owens made the comments on Wednesday during an edition of The Daily Wire’s podcast, Candace.
She began by suggesting ‘Pride Month’ be renamed ‘Shame Month,’ claiming the “absolute debauchery” which stems from the celebrations is an attempt to program children into thinking some of the wildest of escapades are normal behavior.
Owens noted “seeing images of children putting dollar bills in half-naked men that are dressed up as women,” something underscored by the surfacing of disturbing images earlier this month.
Candace Owens then pivoted to ‘drag queen story hour,’ a phenomenon rising on the left.
Owens pointed to a recent report that in New York City, over $200,000 has been spent on drag queen shows … in schools!
“When they’re putting real dollars behind things like drag queen story hour in New York City, you should realize that something nefarious is going on because the government does not care about your children,” she argued.
Owens’ ire was saved for parents who take part in these events.
Candace Owens insinuated that allowing one’s children to attend ‘drag queen story hour’ is essentially a form of child abuse.
“‘I allowed my child to pick their gender and pick their species,'” she mocked of certain parents. “And they feel proud of themselves because they can go and they can say this on Facebook that they are wonderful, accepting, and loving adults.”
“In reality,” she countered, “they are underqualified to have children.”
Owens added parents like that “should have their children taken away from them because it’s child abuse.”
“It is child abuse to put a half-naked adult in the room with a small child and having them read a book,” she described. “It’s just child abuse. That’s what it is.”
The Political Insider’s Kathleen Anderson wrote earlier this week about a column by the Washington Post which was titled: Yes, kink belongs in Pride. And I want my kids to see it.
The words ‘kink’ and ‘kids’ don’t even belong in the same headline, let alone in the same vicinity of each other.
“Is it age-appropriate for five to ten-year-olds to be learning about kink culture and whatever ‘enthusiastic consent’ is?” Anderson wrote. “Or perhaps a better question is ‘age-appropriate’ even a thing anymore in our society?”
