Screaming shrew on The View says drag queen shows are fine because they don’t don’t kill kids like guns do


The following includes editorial content which is the opinion of the writer, and doesn’t necessarily, although probably does, reflect the views of Law Enforcement Today. 

It is virtually impossible to author a story about the liberal hen-fest The View without having to resort to an editorial instead of a news story. Yet once again, here we are.

As an aside just wondering…is Lume a sponsor of the show? Curious minds want to know.

In the latest episode of “Bimbos Who Know Nothing,” we saw alleged conservative Ana Navarro actually make the argument that sexually deviant drag queen shows really aren’t that bad for children, with her argument being…wait for it…they aren’t as deadly as guns, The Media Research Center’s (MRC’S) Newsbusters reported.

Talk about your basic gaslighting. Where is the connect between guns and drag shows?

Navarro also tried to draw an equivalency between red states and communist countries such as Cuba and North Korea, claiming that all of them bar citizens from leaving their borders.

As with the rest of the dimwits on The View, Navarro is literally too stupid to insult.

Clearly, aside from former President Donald Trump, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis lives rent-free in the vacuous space between Navarro’s ears where most people have a brain.

Last Friday, Navarro had her rather substantial panties in a bunch when she spent the show slamming DeSantis, who sued a venue on behalf of the state of Florida for hosting explicit drag shows, while allowing young children to attend.

Navarro then claimed her bridal shower was held there. Can you fathom being married to that?

“And what we’re seeing in Florida, I can’t even comprehend. This is a state where we have a housing crisis. His is a state where we have an insurance crisis.

This is a state where we have a climate crisis. And instead, Ron DeSantis is focusing on drag queens,” Navarro railed on Monday.

Have you noticed that everything is a crisis for liberals? Except of course for real ones.

It should be noted that Navarro apparently has no children of her own, but she considers herself an expert in the raising of children, claiming that while she personally doesn’t think “a five-year-old should be at a drag show,” bloviated that Republicans were interfering in another “parental choice” issue.

“If you are parental choice when it comes to your kid wearing a mask to school [unhealthy mentally and physically], if you are for parental choice when it comes to your kid learning about slavery and learning about the true [progressive agenda] history of this country, then why in the hell can’t you be about parental choice on whether you take your kid to a drag show or not?”

In other words, Navarro is all about parental choice when it comes to exposing children to deviate sexual behavior, however she is not about parental choice when it comes to exposing children to grooming ideology.

She is not about parental choice when it comes to minors getting abortions without parental consent. And she is not about parental choice when it comes to what schools their children can attend. In other words, she’s a flaming hypocrite.

As MRC notes, Navarro’s logic dictates that states should eliminate “child endangerment and negligence laws,” since those involve a parent’s “choice” to expose their children to dangerous circumstances.

Navarro then went on to boast that those complaining about kids being at drag shows are “cherry-picking” their outrage, which was then she made the absurd connection that drag shows aren’t that bad because they don’t kill kids as guns do. This is when she truly jumped the shark:

“Listen, I looked at the top causes of endangerment for children, of children’s death. It’s firearms. It’s car accidents. It’s drownings. It is not drag queens. I’ve yet to see a kid that dies of being exposed to a drag queen.”

Let’s examine that statement. Car accidents—it’s in the title…accidents; drownings—accidental; firearms—accidental or criminal.

Where is the connection between emotionally and mentally endangering children by deliberately exposing them to deviate sexual behavior, and accidents or criminal activity? That’s right…there isn’t one.

Earlier in the program, co-host Sara Haines—who will never be confused with either a brain surgeon or rocket scientist—made the brain-dead statement that states which pass their own abortion laws weren’t abiding by federalism.

Clearly, Haines was doing her nails and putting on makeup during history or political science class. She has zero clue what federalism is and her statement proves it:

“They brought it back to the states with the overturning of Roe v Wade, but now you have states deciding you can’t go to another state, which just flies in the face of what they’re saying when they say a state should be in control,” the blonde bimbo said.

MRC opined that perhaps if Haines knew that forcing a state to accept another state’s laws would carry over to something like concealed carry reciprocity she might reconsider her statement.

Navarro doubled down on Haines’ statement, making the irrational claim that red states are akin to communist dictatorships. Our View hens probably never heard of COVID restrictions in blue states like California, New York, New Jersey and a dozen or so others.

“That’s the kind of stuff that happens in Cuba. That’s the kind of stuff that happens in North Korea, where they don’t let you travel out of those countries,” Navarro bellyached.

“I think the party’s gone crazy, frankly, to tell you the truth,” then went on to claim the abortion issue was “manufactured” and not a “real issue.”

This from a member of the party that can’t define a woman, that thinks men can have babies, that believe climate change is real, and believe Joe Biden could pass a cognitive exam.

Although we can admit never watching that group of screaming banshees, it would seem that watching an hour of someone scratching their fingernails on a chalkboard would be less irritating.

Our favorite whipping boy (ok girls) are the hens at The View because they are such easy targets. For one of our previous articles, we invite you to:


By Larry Keane and our friends at NSSF

No one’s claiming they watch ABC’s The View for factual Second Amendment news. But the gaggle of progressive television hosts got plenty wrong during a conversation about Second Amendment rights and recent criminal shootings perpetrated by people breaking the law.

The hosts are known for their extreme gun restriction beliefs. This particular discussion included Joy Behar bloviating about how the U.S. Supreme Court was “poised to pass a bill” that would force New York to “be an open carry state, and an open carry city,” among other nonsense.

The show’s conservative guest host, former Director of Strategic Communications for The White House for President Donald Trump Alyssa Farah, took the bait when it was suggested that no American needs an AR-15.

The hosts could use a Civics 101 lesson.

Rights, Not Needs

The View pushed partisan politics and gun control before the facts were known after a disturbed criminal attacked New York City subway commuters and injured at least 23.

The group decried Republicans for exposing soft-on-crime prosecutors as part of the problem. Behar blamed Republican governors for making it “easier” to get a firearm.

She meant Republican governors in AlabamaIndiana and Georgia who all signed legislation enacting permitless carry, or Constitutional Carry. The laws in those states don’t “make it easier” to get guns.

The laws mean only that if a law-abiding American passes a National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) verification, they can legally carry a firearm without having to pay for a state permit to exercise their fundamental right to bear arms. There are 25 states in this group.

Host Sunny Hostin questioned Farah. “Would you agree and concede that no one needs an AR-15 or, uh, an assault-style weapon….because hunters, if you’re a good hunter I don’t think you need to use that to shoot a deer,” she asked.

“So, yes,” Farah answered. She added that people often misunderstand firearms because of what they look like, not how they function.

The answer should have been “No!” Full stop.

Not because of anything having to do with hunting.

Not because they are supposedly “assault-style weapons,” – they aren’t.

Not because Hostin thinks firearm ownership is about a “need.”

The answer is “No” because it is a fundamental right of law-abiding Americans.

The first 10 amendments to the Constitution were deemed the Bill of Rights. Not the Bill of Needs.

America’s Rifle

The AR-15, or Modern Sporting Rifle (MSR), is the most popular-selling semiautomatic centerfire rifle in America. The AR stands for ArmaLite Rifle, the name of the company that developed the design back in the 1950s, not “assault rifle” as gun control groups or talking heads like Hostin falsely repeat.

These rifles use the same one-trigger-pull, one-fire technology that was developed in the late-nineteenth century and is still commonly utilized in handguns and shotguns.

Modern Sporting Rifles have been commercially sold  since the early 1960s and are available to law-abiding citizens who pass a NICS check. They only bear a similar appearance to the military’s M-16 or M-4 automatic rifles.

Automatic rifles have been severely restricted from civilian ownership since 1934 and haven’t been commercially made since 1986.

Throughout the coronavirus pandemic, firearm sales in America reached record highs with NSSF industry retailer data showing more than 21 million background checks for a firearm sale in 2020 and more than 18.5 million in 2021.

Thopat includes more than 14 million first-time firearm buyers between 2020 and 2021. Self-defense was one of the top reasons given when first-time purchasers were asked about why they bought a firearm.

Given its versatility, affordability, accuracy and reliability, the MSR has always been a favorite choice for that category of buyer. Since 1990, estimates are there are well over 20 million MSRs in circulation today.

NBC News examined why so many Americans purchased MSRs throughout the pandemic and 26-year-old mom Megan Hill explained her decision.

“We looked at the AR-15, and it was all in one package,” Hill said. “You can target-shoot with it, protect yourself with it, hunt with it. Luckily we haven’t had to use it in self-defense, but it’s a comfort knowing that it’s there to protect my children and my family.”

Empowering Right

Hostin is no stranger to absurd statements about firearms. She’s bemoaned Americans like Megan Hill and millions more who own MSRs, saying she feels like “a hostage.”

She loathed that her friends and family were buying firearms. She even sat and listened as previous guest host Sherri Shephard explained why she decided to purchase a firearm.

“I felt very empowered when I bought this gun. I took lessons. I took the test. I go to the range with my girlfriends like every other week, and it just makes me feel like at least if something happens, I can protect my child,” Shephard said. “I don’t know why you’re laughing.”

Women accounted for more than 40 percent of all firearm purchases over the past two years and African-American women have been the fastest-growing demographic segment of all. The number one reason has been for protection of their families and children.

Americans aren’t taking their advice from television talk show hosts. They’re standing on the Constitution when it comes to their rights, including their right to own MSRs. Support for gun control is tanking as gun ownership is rising. They’re keeping it up today, not because of a need, but because it’s their right to do so.

‘Enough already’: Sig Sauer announces major backing of national ‘re-fund the police’ campaign

Editor note: For those looking for a quick link to get in the fight and support the cause, click here.

NEWINGTON, NH – Law Enforcement Today is pleased to share that Sig Sauer, highly respected and immensely popular leader in the firearms industry, has joined us as a corporate sponsor in our campaign to “Re-Fund the Police.”

As a Law Enforcement Today reader, you know that we have put forth a campaign to back the blue and support re-funding efforts, while calling attention to both the adverse effects of defunding the police, and the positive effects that our dedicated protectors in law enforcement create every single day.

In this campaign, we put out a call for individual and corporate sponsors to join us in this mission.

Sig Sauer, with its honorable and lengthy history of supporting law enforcement, answered that call with a generous donation, standing with us and with our brothers and sisters in blue.

From its humble beginnings as a German gun company in 1751 and a Swiss wagon factory in 1853 who merged in 1875 to its current status as a firearms industry leader, Sig Sauer has remained synonymous with expert, state-of-the art craftsmanship and reliability.

Sig Sauer has also cultivated a close working relationship with law enforcement over the decades of its existence, marrying its expertise with the needs of those who serve.

As the Sig Sauer website states:

“It is the largest member of a worldwide business group of firearms manufacturers that includes J.P. Sauer & Sohn and Blaser, Gmbh. in Germany.

This global network of companies gives SIG SAUER a world-class firearms knowledge base, unparalleled design expertise, and extensive manufacturing capacity, enabling the company to respond quickly and effectively to changing market conditions and the needs of its military, law enforcement, and commercial markets worldwide.”

In addition to state-of-the art equipment such as firearms, ammunition, optics, suppressors, and air guns, Sig also provides top-of-the line training for law enforcement officers and others.

Sig Sauer Academy, located in Epping, NH, offers firearms and tactics training to everyone from first-time gun owners to the most elite levels of law enforcement and military.  This facility “features state-of-the-art indoor and outdoor ranges, tactical training areas, urban environments, a shoot house, a maritime training area, and a force-on-force village.”

We recently sat down with Tom Taylor, Chief Marketing Officer and Executive VP of Commercial Sales, to learn more about Sig Sauer’s decision to back our campaign to “Re-fund the Police.”

Taylor told us:

“The minute we heard the concept, it resonated with us here at Sig Sauer, because it’s so disgusting to us, the whole “defund the police” mentality….

“The police were already shorthanded, there’s never enough training, there’s never enough equipment, there’s never enough people, there’s never enough resources. 

“And then you throw at them this ‘defund the police’ mess, to put it politely.”

He added:

“It just disgusts us, when we see specific incidents of police agencies like Austin, who have gone so all-in to this concept of taking resources away from an operation that is already underfunded.

“Who is going to help save lives when they’re needed?  It’s harder and harder to get police officers where they’re needed, on time, because of a lack of resources….

“You hear the 911 calls where people are calling in the middle of a riot in Atlanta, and they say, we’re really sorry but there are no police officers to send to your aid right now. 

“It’s disgusting.”

Taylor explained further that raising money is itself important, but the plans to raise awareness and share the truth with the public are equally significant.

He continued:

“I think it’s important to educate the public that there’s a problem….

“No matter how much money we raise in this effort, it’s also very important that we let the world know that the police need resources and they need money.”

Taylor added that a further advantage to educating the public would be to improve the reputation of law enforcement as a career.

He told us:

“We also need to try to re-engage young people to be police officers, because that used to be such a noble and admirable thing, and now it’s becoming so difficult to be a police officer, and to have young people aspire to be in law enforcement.

“We want to communicate to the world that it’s ok to be a cop.”

Taylor expanded further upon Sig Sauer’s ties with law enforcement, saying:

“It’s in our DNA…. We work closely [at Sig Sauer Academy] with military and law enforcement….

“It’s a big part of who our Academy personnel are; they are all current or former military and cops… and so they are such thought leaders for our company for both training and equipment and importantly, mindset.

“When we are developing a new product, we go talk to them.”

He added:

“Our CEO [Ron Cohen] served in the Israeli military for five years, and our dedication to supporting law enforcement and military runs so deep in this company…. The moment I mentioned the ‘refunding the police’ concept to our CEO, he immediately wanted to support this cause.”

Taylor concluded:

“We absolutely want to let the world know how much we support the thousands of police agencies and hundreds of thousands of officers who carry our products, and those who don’t….

“It doesn’t matter what product they use, they need our support.

“We are doing this because we have so much respect for our police officers, and it is very disappointing that a part of our society allowed something called ‘defund the police’ to become part of our culture, truly sad.”

In addition to its generous financial support, Sig Sauer will also be throwing its own marketing efforts behind the “Re-Fund the Police” campaign, amplifying the message on their social networks.

You can also follow Sig Sauer on their Facebook page, their Twitter feed, their Instagram account, and their LinkedIn account.

Law Enforcement Today is immensely grateful for Sig Sauer’s strong stand to support all those who protect and serve, and we look forward to working together with Sig to “Re-Fund Our Police” and expand public understanding of the the daily good deeds of our protectors in blue, as well as the adverse effects of defunding the police.

“Re-Fund the Police”: Law Enforcement Today launches nationwide campaign for Americans to back the blue


Editor note: In 2020, we saw a nationwide push to “defund the police”.  While we all stood here shaking our heads wondering if these people were serious… they cut billions of dollars in funding for police officers.  And as a result, crime has skyrocketed – all while the same politicians who said “you don’t need guns, the government will protect you” continued their attacks on both our police officers and our Second Amendment rights.

And that’s exactly why we’re launching this national crowdfunding campaign as part of our efforts to help “re-fund the police”.

For those looking for a quick link to get in the fight and support the cause, click here.

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA – You back the Blue.  You support the police.  You quietly buy an officer a cup of coffee at your local coffeehouse.  You bring homemade cookies to your local police station.  You make it a point to thank an officer when you see one out in public.

You watch the news, aghast to see crowds of anti-police protesters and rioters committing acts of violence and massive property damage.  You pray daily for the Blue family.

And yet, you may feel quite alone.

Politicians and the mainstream news media would have you think that police support is at an all-time low.

Some of you may have found it necessary to take down your Thin Blue Line flags from your house, or to scrape off the Thin Blue Line sticker from your vehicles, due to the potential for violent retaliation by those who hate the police.

Yes, it is the loudest voices that are the ugliest.  They revile and attack those who back the Blue.  They call, “Defund the Police!” at every turn, fueled by the lie that police officers are racists who are out to kill.

But you are actually in excellent company in your support of the blue family.

According to a Gallup poll, 85% of Americans support law enforcement.  That means supporters of the Thin Blue Line are 285 million strong.

85% of Americans support Law Enforcement

That would be 285 million who, like you, refuse join in the calls to defund the police.

And that means you are in the company of those who have logic and reason on their side.

After all, we at Law Enforcement Today bring you stories daily of exploding crime in police-defunded areas such as Austin, Portland,  New York City, or Los Angeles.

Homicide rates since defunding are up 58% in Atlanta, up 533% in Portland, and up 37% in Philadelphia.

Shootings in post-defunded New York City are up 64%, and they are up 51% in Los Angeles and up 18% in Chicago.

In addition, you have also followed our disturbing and often tragic stories of attacks on police officers in the era of police defunding.

Felonious attacks on police are on the rise, as documented by the FBI’s Law Enforcement Officers Killed and Assaulted (LEOKA) Data Collection.

According to LEOKA:

“The 50 law enforcement officers feloniously killed in the first 8 months of 2021 represent a 51.5 percent increase compared to the 33 officers killed during the same period in 2020.”

Screaming shrew on The View says drag queen shows are fine because they don't don't kill kids like guns do
370 officers gave their lives in the line of duty in 2020

Also thanks to defunding, police departments across the country now lack training, resources, and equipment.  Ironically, calls for additional training in cultural awareness, de-escalation, and use of force often have to go unheeded due to the lack of financial resources.

Another irony is that the push to do away with less-lethal options such as Tasers and tear gas will simply lead to more fatal police shootings.

These alarming stories and statistics indicate beyond a doubt that defunding the police is absolutely the wrong move for this great country.  You know this, yet you and 285 million other voices are all too often silenced by social pressures as well as physical threats of violence.

You are even told, “Silence is violence,” when it comes to refusing to stand against law enforcement.

Your voice matters, and you need to be heard.

As Law Enforcement Today National Spokesman Kyle Reyes points out:

“Americans have stood by in disbelief as this ‘defund the police’ movement has spread across America and ravaged our communities. 

“We’ve watched our cities burn, our officers be attacked and violence skyrocket. 

“It’s time to come out of the twilight zone.  It’s time to fight back.”

Law Enforcement Today, the nation’s largest police-owned media outlet, has developed a way to make your voice heard and oppose those who would seek to remove funding from those who protect and serve.

It’s called the “Re-Fund the Police” campaign.

Reyes explains:

“We wanted to make the “Re-fund the Police” campaign something that everyone- whether you can spare $1 or $1 million – can be a part of.

“People will donate to politicians all day long in hopes that person will get elected and possibly make a difference.

“We are asking for people to come forward and support those who make a difference and save lives every single day.”

Through your generous donations, Law Enforcement today will direct a media and advertising blitz to rally other Americans who, like you, are done with attacks on law enforcement, both physical and financial.

Here’s what the funds go towards:

  1. We’ve assembled a “strike team” of researchers and reporters who will delve deeply into the devastating impact that defunding the police has on communities and families.  They’re going after not just the “leaders” in Congress who are pushing to defund the police… but they’re exposing everyone from the local politicians and city councils who are behind it.  They’re also tracing the money of exactly who is funding this “defund the police” movement.
  2.  We will focus on publicizing all the negative effects of defunding police while expressing support for our brothers and sisters in blue.  The advertising blitz will be a show of support for police officers all across America.

In addition, we will be sending a team of reporters into our communities to share positive stories of law enforcement, stories which are consistently ignored by the mainstream media.

As a thank-you for your generosity in standing strong for the blue family, we are offering access codes for Law Enforcement Today’s Wounded Officer documentary and Border Crisis documentary.  In addition, we offer additional perks such as stickers and Thin Blue Line face masks or yard signs.

Donors are also able to honor or memorialize a member of the blue family.

For those who cannot afford to contribute, we invite you to be a part of a nationwide chain of prayer warriors.

You can join our prayer chain along with other supporters who are willing to pray for our brothers and sisters in blue.

Screaming shrew on The View says drag queen shows are fine because they don't don't kill kids like guns do
We support those who protect and serve.

Also, when you sign up for our newsletter, we will keep you informed on how we are continuing to back the Blue, and bring you the stories the mainstream media will not touch.

Now to small businesses who are sick and tired of watching our cities burn as the “defund the police” movement spreads.

For business donors, we are pleased to offer a unique opportunity to make a difference in police departments across the country.

Reyes explains:

“We wanted to make sure small businesses could get in the fight, so we are rolling out the ‘adopt a police department’ program.”

Your business donation will be used to cover stories in the community of your choice, and expose those who are attempting to defund the police.  Those stories, if you choose, will also include a thank you to your business and a link back to your business website.

In addition, your generous business donation will go toward advertising campaigns that highlight the negative effects of demonizing and defunding the police.

Screaming shrew on The View says drag queen shows are fine because they don't don't kill kids like guns do
We’ve got your 6.

This will give you the opportunity to show to millions of Americans that, unlike “woke” anti-police organizations, you support and appreciate law enforcement.

Reyes points out:

“Corporate America rallied around the Black Lives Matter movement, donating hundreds of millions of dollars to a campaign that brought widespread looting and destruction in our cities. 

“This is an opportunity for businesses to show America that law and order and keeping people safe still means something to them.”

Please join your voice with Law Enforcement Today in this campaign to support all those who protect and serve us.

We invite you to visit the Re-Fund the Police website for further information.
