MATT WALSH (HOST): According to the left, the drag queen-child combination has become dangerous. They say it’s a "lightning rod" for violent backlash. Right, that’s what they say — and it’s greatly exaggerated, of course, mostly it’s invented out of whole cloth, actually.

But even by their version of events, if it’s causing this much chaos and violence, why do you insist on continuing to do it? If according to you, it’s like putting people’s lives at risk, if the effort to have men cross-dress in front of children is putting people’s lives at risk, why are you still doing it? Is it that important to you?

Now, as always, they try to flip the burden around on us. They demand that we explain why we object to children being exposed to drag queens. And we can explain it, and we have, and we will continue to, because it’s very easy to explain. Drag is inherently sexual and ideological, it is burlesque, and it’s not appropriate to bring your child to a burlesque show — you disgusting freaks.

But why should we be the only ones explaining? Instead of asking why we oppose it so much, we should ask why they support it so much that, according to them, they will keep doing it at the risk of life and limb. Why is it so important to you to cross-dress in front of children? Why is it so important? Why do you need to do it? Why? Is it worth the cost that you claim you’re paying for it?
