White House press propagandist Karine Jean-Pierre (KJP), one of the speakers at the third annual “Black Women Lead” conference on Wednesday, claimed that the LGBTQ+ community is under direct assault during so-called “Pride” month.
Feminist organization All In Together, a supposedly”nonpartisan” advocacy group, hosted the event as a “gathering of luminary black women” that “highlights Black women’s power and impact in the march towards a more equitable future.”
Jean-Pierre claimed during her remarks that this year’s Pride month is an especially hazardous time for the “community” it celebrates.
“There’s a lot of things that are happening in this country. A lot of things. It is unprecedented, it is scary,” she said. “We’re in Pride Month, where the LGBTQ+ community is literally under attack. Literally!”
Fact check: Jean-Pierre literally doesn’t know the meaning of the word “literally.”
KJP has made numerous headlines for suggesting the LGBTQ community is victimized by American conservatives and Republican lawmakers. After a transgender shooter massacred children and faculty at a Christian school, she was one of many Democrats insisting that trans people were the ones actually “under attack.”
More recently, she smeared a reporter for noting that parents are concerned about their daughters’ safety when biological males are allowed to participate in the same sports. “What you’re alluding to is basically saying that transgender kids are dangerous… it sounds like that’s what you’re saying,” she accused falsely.
On America’s Newsroom last Friday, high school volleyball player Payton McNabb, who suffered a concussion after competing against a biologically male transgender athlete, slammed Jean-Pierre’s rhetoric.
“She’s taken what others have said about how this is dangerous for us, and she’s essentially switched it around and played the victim from the situation, which I expect nothing less from that whole administration,” McNabb said.
