Kim Davis lawyer ‘taking a gun to women’s toilet’ to scare off transgender ‘perverts’

Kim Davis lawyer ‘taking a gun to women’s toilet’ to scare off transgender ‘perverts’



One of the lawyers who represented Kim Davis is taking a Glock handgun into the women’s toilets, just in case there are any transgender women in there.

Hardline Republicans are using trans bathroom rights as a ‘wedge issue’ to attack LGBT rights across the US, with a number of ‘bathroom bills’ aiming to stop trans people from using their preferred toilet.

One vile ad even depicted a man raping a little girl in a toilet. Rape, unsurprisingly, is a crime in all 50 states… but that hasn’t stopped one anti-LBGT lawyer from rallying against the law.

Anita Staver, the president of the right-wing Liberty Counsel which represented Kentucky clerk Kim Davis, tweeted that she will take a handgun into public toilets in future after Target affirmed a trans-inclusive bathroom policy.

Ms Staver tweeted: “I’m taking a Glock .45 to the ladies room. It identifies as my bodyguard. #BoycottTarget”.



She added: “I want protection from the perverts who will use the law to gain access to women.”

Her hubby Mat Staver is more well-known as the group’s chairman and public face.

A CBS investigation recently found the fingerprints of the Liberty Counsel on many of the bils targeting LGBT anti-discrimination protections and transgender bathroom rights that have been obligingly filed by Republican lawmakers across the US.

It found that the group’s leader Mat Staver, who had appeared countless times with Davis, had helped Republican lawmakers draft legislation for conservative lawmakers in at least 20 states.

He admitted: “There’s certainly a thread of information that is similar and the same… they all have the same intent and that is to protect religious freedom.”

“It is only about being free to pursue your faith. We have no interest in discriminating against anyone.”

But he insisted the gays and liberals were all to blame, continuing: “The Supreme Court in the 5-4 opinion on marriage in 2015 lit the house on fire.

“All we’re trying to do is control the fire at this point in time.”

somehow Drumpf is elected to the WH.

7. Honestly, I fear a Trump GE campaign more than I fear a Trump Presidency.

 

Perhaps it is wishful thinking, but I'd like to believe that Trump has no chance of actually being elected President.

But a Trump GE Campaign does appear to be a distinct possibility, if not probability, and I fully expect people to die as a direct result of a Trump GE Campaign.

It's not like he's going out of his way to make it difficult.

Not sure what quote he's referring to, but this is a good one.

I am really enjoying the new Martin Luther King Jr stamp - just think about all those white bigots, licking the backside of a black man.

20. Whoa there my friend

I fully and completely admire and respect Dick Gregory for the sacrifices he made. I went to hear him speak when he explained to us how the elite need to have a "N ..." to blame for all the ills in this country and, at the time, it was hippies. He made it so clear how many ignorant people must have someone to blame and would prefer to hate than to think. He was a hero and I wish we had one now. Can't believe how you so misinterpreted a very straightforward statement of admiration.

Nisqually Indians.

He was there years me before though.

6. “It is only about being free to pursue your faith. We have no interest in discriminating against any

one"

really, mat, not everyone is as stupid as those in your target audience. the rest of us have working brains.

this is ALLLLLLL about discrimination, and the right to be as bigoted and ignorant as you want, with your precious deity as an excuse.

16. What Kim Davis's lawyer doesn't realize is that TARGET doesn't allow guns.

 

That may annoy ammosexuals, but it is what it is.

Nobody with any sense is looking for shootouts in America's Bathrooms.

27. You should refrain from using "ammosexual." It's impact is based on prejudice and...

 

animosity toward LGBTQ people; this should be obvious to anyone, even if sanctified by DU, or by some late-night comic.

If you have to use hateful expressions, consult the Gungeon for a wide-range of penis-related disparagements, or other labels for gun-owners (perhaps 100,000,000 of them) which satisfy and amuse you; that stuff is self-destructive to the user only, and not other people.

BTW, no one is looking for any shootouts anywhere. But transgender folks are indeed arming themselves. No better source than Gavin Newsome.

19. I doubt she'll do any such thing, but if she is that crazy this won't end well.

First off making such an absurd statement is usually the practice of a fool, but let's say she follows through and encounters someone of questionable (in her mind) validity in the restroom. A verbal encounter insues wherein the subject of Staver's attentikn tells her to pound salt. Will Staver draw down on this person? Will she shoot them? At best she's looking at a lawsuit and at worst she's looking at doing some hard time.

Personally I think she'll do nothing and this whole episode is a dog whistle for the rubes they pander to.

She is more likely to end up dead than the other way around.

Transgender people should be able to use the damn bathroom without fear of getting shot! Or fear of anything at all. Let people pee.

33. If it doesn't flush properly, then I assume it's available to the next child who uses that bathroom.

 

There is indeed a real danger in America's Public Bathrooms, but it isn't quite the same menace that the right wing pretends it to be.

It's a real minefield out there.

Not so different from unexploded landmines in nations that have experienced war, unfortunately.
