So. Obama was being heckled at a LGBT event by one Jennicet Gutiérrez, founding member of Familia TQLM, and an undocumented LGBTQ trans activist from Mexico.
HO – “Hey, listen, you’re in the White House, it’s not respectful when you get invited…..”
Damn, fingers did the talking instead of the brain – what he actually said was – “Hey, listen, you’re in my house.“ And later – “You can either stay and
shut up be quiet or we will have to take you out!”
As Keith Koffler notes the Secret Service dutifully removed her albeit rather slowly for some reason or another. All I can say is that Jennicet should be grateful HO does not dispatch drones within “his” house.
To the incident –
To the issue –
Gutiérrez – What I was trying to say was for Mr. Obama to release all the LGBTQ detainees in detention centers in addition to stop the abuse and torture the trans woman are facing in detention.
Moderator – Were you concerned that you yourself would be in jeopardy as an undocumented trans activist from Mexico?
Gutiérrez – I knew there was a big risk to take but to me, I’ve always been a risk taker and the message and giving the voice to my community that don’t have the voice was more important than facing any consequences.
At this point I will clarify my position on marriage – that it is between one man and one woman. On illegal immigration – I believe it will be the downfall of this country.
On inhumane treatment while being detained awaiting deportation – it is wrong. Wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong! May the abusers and those who allow this particular atrocity rot in hell for all of eternity.
