CANDACE OWENS (HOST): 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.


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're 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 applauding around as, oh, this is love. Love is love. Love is love. By the way, that is one of the dumbest expressions that I ever heard in my – Love is love! Air is air! And water is water! It's stupid. Debauchery is debauchery. And that's what we're looking at right now. 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.

And right now, as we're seeing, there is a marriage between government and big pharma. It is my belief that that is the push behind this effort to tell children that they can pick their gender and to confuse them. I believe our government is actually sponsoring mental illness. I've said this over and over again. Right? Because people that are mentally ill cannot stand on their own two feet. Right? They become co-dependent with the government, they turn to the government for their hormone pills, they turn to the government for whatever pills that they can – to make it feel better. Right?

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. 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.
