“It’s child abuse”: Candace Owens unleashes on parents who bring children to drag queen events


NASHVILLE, TN – Conservative commentator Candace Owens recently had strong words for parents who take their children to drag queen events, saying “they should have their children taken away.”

Owens voiced her opinions on the matter on her June 15, 2022, episode of “Candace” on the Daily Wire.

She began the segment by suggesting that “Pride Month” ought to be called “Shame Month”:

“Of course, I have been covering the wonderful month of pride, for which I feel no pride for at all.

“I think it should be called ‘Shame Month.’  It’s absolute debauchery.”

Referring the recent news of New York’s taxpayer-funded drag queen story hours at city schools, she added:

“Why did that need to happen?  I don’t know.

“Maybe it’s because it’s very obvious that there is an agenda on our children, and they keep trying to tell you that you’re homophobic if you talk about it, but it’s not homophobia to talk about the fact that they are going after our children.

“I have said on this show, and I have been mocked for it, that it’s very obvious that pedophilia will be around the corner.  Right?

“There’s no reason that we should be seeing images of children putting dollar bills in half-naked men that are dressed up as women, and seeing adults applaud it around as, ‘Oh, this is love, love is love.”

She continued:

“Debauchery is debauchery, and that’s what we’re looking at right now.”

Owens also took the government to task for pushing a drag queen agenda on children, saying:

“Our society has become increasingly disgusting. 

“I spoke about this last week and when you believe, when you start to see that your government is sponsoring that, 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. 

“No. The government does not love your children. The government does not want your children to be accepted. The government wants your children to be enslaved to government for the rest of their life.”

Owens went on to postulate that there is a “marriage between government and big pharma,” intended to “tell children they can pick their gender and to confuse them.”

“I believe our government is actually sponsoring mental illness,” she added.


Owens also took aim at complicit parents in no uncertain terms, saying:

“And you’re seeing right now that adults are getting behind this narrative so they can have a woke t-shirt on and say, ‘I love my children. I allowed my child to pick their gender and pick their species.’

“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. When, in reality, they are underqualified to have children.”


Unrelenting in her critique, she continued by calling such behavior “child abuse,” saying:

“They 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. It’s just child abuse. That’s what it is. 

“It’s child abuse to ask your child to take a dollar bill and put it into the thong of a grown adult. It’s child abuse. 

“It’s child abuse for teachers to be telling children, knowing fully well that it is a lie, that they can switch their gender biologically. Right? 

“But to encourage that behind a parent’s back? That’s child abuse.”

Owens concluded:

“The question that remains is, when do parents draw the line and start realizing that the scholarships, and the nice schools are not worth all of this.

“It’s not worth allowing your child to be abused by mentally ill adults.”

Here’s what the uproar is about: Dallas gay bar hosts a so-called “child friendly” drag show targeting young children

Originally published June 6, 2022

DALLAS, TX- A “child-friendly” drag show? At a gay bar in Texas? Say it ain’t so, sleepy Joe.

The Post Millennial reports that a Dallas gay bar called Mr. Misster” hosted what they called a “child friendly” drag show this past Saturday. Among signs posted at this “child friendly” event included ones reading “It’s not gonna lick itself” and “I licked it so it’s mine.” How very “child friendly” that is.

Journalist Tayler Hansen posted pictures of the above signs which he tweeted, and he also posted videos of the sick performance. One such video showed a drag queen inviting children to share the stage with one of the performers.

“If you think you can do it like we do, I want you to come up real quick,” said the drag queen, who then asked the children if they “want to be a diva” while also inviting them to pick a drag queen to partner with. The question is, where the hell were the parents?

On the gay bar’s social media page, the event was defined as “A family-friendly spinoff of our famed Champagne Drag Brunch,” and entitled, “Drag Kids to Pride.”

Once again, crap like this is why some cannot take the alphabet community seriously, and plays right into the narrative of people who believe our children are being indoctrinated. “Groomed,” if you will.

Alex Stein, a conservative comedian, attempted several times to get into the event, however, was denied entry.

“I thought you guys were inclusive,” Stein said, mocking the person at the door.

“You guys are bigots! You won’t let me in here, but you’re gonna let children,” he said, then was removed from the premises.

Meanwhile WFAA in Dallas reported that a number of protesters showed up outside the venue, angry at the bar targeting children.

One such protester, who only gave her name as Dasy, said she saw a poster for the event near where she lives. She showed up after the event with a poster that said, “Stop grooming the kids.”

“I live in this community,” Dasy said. “I have for several years. I don’t believe that I should be seeing signs advertising for children to be dancing on stage with men in thongs and in inappropriate clothing and makeup. I do not in any way condone the behavior that these people are engaging in, but what drags me out her is its kids now.”

After the event, the gay bar issued the following statement:

“We host our Champagne Drag Brunch every Saturday at 2pm for guests that are 21+ but we have partnered with some of our major community partners to host a special Pride Drag Brunch for all guests, including guests that couldn’t normally attend our regular show because of the drinking age restriction, to raise money for a local LGBTQ+ youth organization.

We are more than happy to open our doors to celebrate Pride in a family friendly, safe environment, separate from our normal operations of 2p.m.- 2 a.m. on Saturdays because we believe that everyone should have a space to be able to celebrate who they are.

Mr. Misster is a place where everyone is welcome to feel accepted, safe, and included. We had a group of protestors outside yelling homophobic threats, transphobic remarks, and vile accusations at these children and parents.

It is so sad to see that in 2022, there are still people that want to protests [sic] others celebrating who they are, but our staff and wonderful officers helped keep us safe and kept the protestors at bay.”

WFAA said a man named AJ Crews has been working at the bar for about two years, who said such an event allows people to express themselves.

“There were a lot less people drinking today so that would make it more kid friendly just because there were so many people here,” Crews said. “Everyone just came from all walks of life, and you know, just enjoyed pride.”

Protect Texas Kids was one group outside protesting. They provided the following statement:

We decided to organize this protest when we saw advertising for the event a few weeks ago—we researched the bar and quickly found out that it’s a gay bar, and we were also pretty concerned when we saw the signage on the bar’s website that says “it’s not gonna lick itself.” We just launched our organization and this was our first event.

“The mission was to raise awareness that an event like this, a drag show for children, was happening right in Dallas. We also hoped that if we raised awareness, the event might be canceled or modified so that children couldn’t be present.

“We were very happy with how the event went overall. The police were able to come in and remove all of the children and their families from inside of the bar. There were a lot of people in attendance who didn’t have kids, so those people were able to stay and the event continued.”

Dallas police, however denied they removed anyone from the event. A department spokesperson said Dallas PD officer showed up to “assist with crowd control” and to help the crowd “disperse in a safe manner.”

A spokesman for the bar said the bar had received several hundred threatening emails, Google reviews, and phone calls from protestors.
