Transgender Activists Are A Lot Like Pennywise The Clown

March 10, 2023

By Brandon Smith

Ten years ago would you have ever thought we would be having this debate?

Transsexual cosplay has somehow become the reigning social issue of our era, with trans activism taking precedence within government, public schools and even the corporate world. For reasons that defy logic the question of “trans rights” has superseded all other conflicts regarding civil liberties. A group that comprises less than 0.5% of the US population has been dictating the national discussion.

Not only that, but there is reasonable suspicion that a majority of these people are not actually “trans” but are simply joining what they see as an opportunistic trend. Perhaps it’s to get attention they feel they are entitled to. Perhaps it is a way to feel as if they are a part of something historically meaningful as they do little else with their lives. Perhaps it is a play to get special treatment and special protection under victim group status.

Becoming trans is, after all, the easiest way for an otherwise straight white person to climb to the top of the oppression totem pole.  And in a world where being a victim is a currency, that’s a highly valuable option.

But then again, the biggest reason trans ideology has become such a point of contention in our country is because it seems to have an unhealthy obsession with the grooming of children. We’ve all seen the video clips on social media of grown men in women’s stripper garb twerking in front of toddlers for dollars. And while we might experience a natural repellent disgust in response to this, it’s important to recognize that the majority of trans activists feel “proud” and vindicated. They actually think it’s a win. Normal people are on an entirely different end of the moral spectrum from trans activists and there can be no diplomacy with such a group.

The problem extends to the subversion of public schools and classrooms. Gender fluid propaganda, an concept backed by NO scientific evidence, is being taught to very young children in place of core academics. As test scores and reading comprehension plunge in America our kids are being brainwashed with woke nonsense, often in secret as teachers and school boards refuse to divulge their lesson plans.

Ten years ago, teachers knew their place in society – To educate children with the goal of academic achievement in mind and to defer to parents on all issues related to their kids. They are not social workers, therapists, sages or gurus. In most respects, they are not very important at all. However, in recent years the teaching profession has adopted serious delusions of grandeur with visions of tearing down and rebuilding the minds and principles of the next generation. They see your kids as their science experiment.

Many trans activists have no intention of having children of their own to pass on their “values” so it makes sense that they would have to target other people’s kids and indoctrinate them instead. The cult has to live on somehow.

Then we get to the worst of the worst – The gender affirmation industry. It’s a coordinated program, a sudden flood of health facilities which have made gender identity politics their bread and butter. Their goal? To convince gullible or narcissistic parents and impressionable children to pursue life changing hormone therapies and even surgeries in an attempt to convert the child into something they will never be: The opposite sex.

The psychological and social implications of this in the long term are unknown, but if the experiments of gender ideology founder John Money are any indication, then it will probably result in an entire generation of stunted and suicidal youths.

Trans activists have long argued that their movement is nothing more than a human rights effort and when they get “equity” in rights and treatment all will be well. This is, of course, a lie, like the majority of claims surrounding transgenderism. In the US, trans activists already have all the same rights as every other American. The reality is that the trans movement has long been a political movement with considerable ambitions of power and influence.

They have their own social dynamics, their own methodologies, their own doctrine, their own taboos, their own gatekeepers and they even have their own flags. It’s time for the public to acknowledge that we are looking at an attempt to spread a political system – It’s not a victim status group looking for fair treatment, that’s just a cover and a shield from criticism.

In the case of typical social justice organizations, much like most Marxist movements, we certainly see an attempt to destroy old cultural systems and to rewrite history using false narratives. But with the trans movement, we see something new: It’s not just an attempt to brainwash children to do the bidding of the party, it’s an attack on fundamental biology, the very roots of humanity and truth. It’s a creature that mutilates children, their minds and their bodies, with the intent to trap them into the leftist fold from the moment they can walk and talk and feed off of them for the rest of their lives.

Whenever I think of trans activists, I can’t help but be reminded of the novel IT by Stephen King and his well known monster ‘Pennywise the Clown.’ Pennywise is a formless evil, a chameleon that wears various faces, sometimes to lure victims to their doom and at other times to create fear by taking on the image of people’s worst nightmares. He stalks children in particular because they are the most vulnerable.

Another less understood concept in the book is the effect Pennywise has on the town of Derry, Maine where he hides. His presence causes rot and degradation as the residents are worn down by darkness and despair. He takes your children and then revels in your misery.

Why is the trans movement so focused on children? Why do they want drag queens, commonly associated with sexualized performances, to read books to toddlers? Why do they want kids to go to highly sexualized drag performances? Why are public schools allowing trans ideology to be taught in classrooms instead of academics? Why are schools secretly taking kids to such performances without parental knowledge or consent? Why is trans ideology being planted in kids entertainment? Why are parents being lied to about gender fluidity as if it is backed by science when it’s not? Why are children being groomed for gender reassignment drugs and surgeries? Why are states allowing children to get gender reassignment surgery without parental knowledge? What the hell is going on?

Many would point out the obvious conclusion that the trans movement has a child fetish. Stephen King is himself a rabid leftist who wrote a disturbing child orgy scene into his IT novel. It’s clearly one of the motivators, but I think that trans activism is a little more complex than simply an excuse for pedophilia.

A decade ago this kind of behavior would have been treated as suspect if not repugnant altogether. If adults with gender dysphoria (a rare mental illness) want to act out a personal fetish on their own time then that is their prerogative. However, this is about exposing innocent bystanders with no critical thinking skills to that same mental illness and that same fetish; a captive audience. This is about parents and teachers convincing children to act against their biology so they can use the child as a virtue signal prop. This is what narcissists and psychopaths do, except that it is being sanctioned politically in many states and from within the federal government.

Why? Because it is useful for gaining power. Imagine for a moment that you are a monster, the most disturbed creature you can think of. All you do is thirst for control and the anguish of your enemies and this thirst can never be fully satiated. How would you go about asserting your dominance over the population?

You would have to weaken the citizenry first. You would have to divide them, and what better way to divide them than to drive a wedge between them and their own children. Make the kids a target, bring them to your side or use them as leverage to make parents submit.

You would have to undermine the foundations of the society, eliminate the lessons of history and pervert the pillars that maintain stability. You would have to convince people that vanity and “PRIDE” are virtues rather than failings. You would have to convince people that all behaviors no matter how destructive must be treated as acceptable and that all discrimination no matter how sensible is wrong. And, when all heritage and all principles are erased you are then free to feast, for evil is now good and good is now evil and there is no one left to stop you.

The trans movement is a vehicle for the absorbing of the youngest generation into a political cult. It is part of a much larger agenda to undermine not just the basic tenets of western culture but to undermine the basic structures of moral compass and conscience. Some trans activists may be unaware of the part they are playing; they might even believe that the targeting of children is about exposing them to new ideas of “acceptance.”

That said, I think many of them do have a clear understanding of their actions and many of them are well aware of the consequences of their efforts, and they take great joy in the destruction they sow.

The pendulum is starting to swing back in the opposite direction as the general public is finally waking up to the threat of far-leftist movements. Multiple states are acting to ban gender affirmation centers and are working to protect kids from the predatory behaviors of trans activism. There is a long way to go, though, before we can get back to a society where the insane is widely considered insane. The patients are still running the asylum, for now.

They don’t just want to force you to use their pronouns and fabricated vocabulary, they want you to pay homage to their flags and applaud their delusions. They want you to embrace their warped version of reality and their vision of the future. They want you to sacrifice your kids to the gods of deconstruction and the process of indoctrination, and they want you to keep your mouth shut about it.

Like Pennywise the Clown, the trans movement wears disguises to lure or to frighten. They don’t want equality (they already have that), they want fealty. They want submission. And, they definitely want your children.

    Stop the progressive madness, before the next leapfrog issue is pederasty or bestiality. Perhaps both at once. Who is their Wizard of Oz directing this Marxist crusade to oblivion?

    Poor David Reimer would be fine if the establishment medicine didn’t insist he get circumcised, a totally unnecessary and painful procedure. Instead he’s dead, and we have this insane ideology.

    Leave our kids’ genitals alone. All of them.

    • Nacho March 10, 2023 at 10:13 am

      Wow !, another perfect nail on the head, what a sober and bright analysis of such a dark & controversial topic, that affects our children so much. I’ll be terrified to send my kids to any public school these days.
      Thank you for bringing such clarity to the systematic abuse, mental and physical of our children, under the tired guise of “equality” .
      I feel so bad for the poor kids that had gone through surgery in these clinics, deceptively called “gender re assurance” and had to suffer the horror, of realizing their grave mistake, (and their parents too).
      People will do anything to protect their children, and this may be the final straw, that broke the camel’s back. Messing and threatening somebody’s kids, will always bring a fight back.
      Bravoo Brandon, you have outdone yourself…one more time.

  • Laura Ann March 10, 2023 at 9:28 am

    Gender teaching in schools would never be allowed if most parents resisted and pulled their kids out of schools and home schooled or placed them in a private Christian school. School board meetings with angry parents have failed, (parents get arrested in some cases) and so few object to kids being under transgender/gender fluid teachings nationwide. Parents just don’t care what their kids are taught or have any moral values. Churches don’t speak out, they run social centers and collect money. Clergy are muzzled by the 501c3, also fear of offending anyone, besides more members mean more money. Home church makes more sense now than ever. Dimwit parents don’t care if kids are being groomed for pedophiles or want sex changes; parents are too buy keeping up with social trash media, texting and celebrity gossip.

      Not true at all. Many parents had no idea this was going on until recently. Now that parents are putting pressure on school boards and teachers the practice is starting to slow down or stop. Multiple states are now working to ban the agenda. If parents are guilty of anything, it is not being involved enough in the policy making process of their local schools and keeping track of the kinds of teachers they are hiring.

      • Laura Ann March 10, 2023 at 6:36 pm

        I don’t know what’s wrong w/ parents nowdays. My parents in my generation ( born mid 20th century) kept up with everything kids did, neighbors discussed kids activities, teachers, and discussed what they learned, etc. (PTA meetings)Few interact today. Kids today live in fear of teachers telling them not to tell parents about gender studies, so kids afraid to open up to parents. Kids today raise themselves and teachers have no morals or values, even parents take small children to drag Q shows. I am in contact w/ two ladies fighting this mess in their school districts. They say parents are too busy to care, women pressed for time (work, meals, house chores), commuting from work. Smart parents pull the kids out of these gov. run schools. Not rocket science. If both work they can afford private schools. I know some who are doing this.

      • Steve March 17, 2023 at 3:07 am

        I am proud to have been sacked from a school I was involved at because I complained about a perverted male dressed as a woman teaching in primary. His job? “Wellness Counselor”! It was highly cathartic writing a letter to the head master and dropping a few truth bombs. I copied it to HR, who seem to be running this crap in schools.

    Ten years ago, trillion dollar budgets were not the norm as they are now.

      R’ball: to sum it all up looking back in time (as a retiree) no win wars, proxy wars, many dying for nothing, majority of people members of the covid cult, economic train wreck, now all this: America is without hope, nihilism affects the majority even in my age group, rapid advancement of agenda 2030.

        Laura Ann: “… America is without hope, nihilism affects the majority even in my age group, rapid advancement of agenda 2030.”

        ‘America’ may seem without hope… but that doesn’t mean that we as individuals have to live that way. The purpose of Life is to learn how to live above the darkness and the tyranny of the Crowd who seem to prefer that darkness… us getting out of the proverbial Dark Cave and finding our way into the Light.

        Each of us was given the freedom and will to choose how we want to live and what we choose to believe. And the first thing to learn is to never surrender those precious gifts to anyone… especially those with bad intent and no good purpose.

        Our best revenge against the forces that work against us is to live good and meaningful lives DESPITE of everything They are trying to do to us. The Almighty gave us our lives and rights, not these malformed Dark Siders with delusions of godhood.

        • Reiki Shaman March 10, 2023 at 11:58 pm

          Agree, and would add that we would do well to find like-minded individuals and families with whom to create community, because we can do much more, when unified, to right things, or at least support each other.

        • Laura Ann March 11, 2023 at 7:53 am

          I tried to warn people about covid shots being experimental instead bld. their immune systems, most didn’t listen to family members or friends. an example of parents not caring what happens to their kids overall: I doubt if the parents pulled her out of school in todays hollowed out dysfunctional families. We must not comply to the globalists, so many dimwits who don’t know squat about what is happening incl. some w/ masters degrees in high paying jobs. We keep to ourselves more so since the covid lockdowns revealed so many dimwits. We are not involved in any community activities they produce zero. Do you really think patriots today can stop the reset? I haven’t read any websites, heard talk shows giving “real hands on results ” advice on stopping this plan have you? We will see when the next so called pandemic and lockdowns how many comply, quit their businesses and jobs and restrain kids from seeing their friends and getting an education.

            Yes, you have to do what your heart tells you to do and say. But once that is done you just have to step back and let people go ahead and make their mistakes. It isn’t your job to put sense into their heads or to insure that they make good decisions. Just follow your own heart and then let them bear the consequences of their decisions.
            “Do you really think patriots today can stop the reset?”
            Each of us does what is necessary to minimize the damage these Earthly demons plan on doing. They have their filthy Godless hands on all levers of power. And we have the strength of our faith and convictions to do what is right for our lives and our situations. The Almighty gave us the tools we need… tools of intellect and discernment and will… but also knowing when and how to best Fight the Power.
            And even if we ‘lose’ in the end… it is not We who will have lost, but THEM.
            There is no lasting reward anywhere for being a Godless, Heartless Tyrant. That would be making a mockery of the True God… and our own true purpose.

      –Lol….good post. We are in “oh shitville.” That is the step before “shit hit the fan.” Collapse is inevitable at this point. I think really what has happened is the American/West have literally had their God given survival instincts bred or beat out of them. Such pressurized brainwashing has occurred in all of our institutions curtesy of the Fabians, Trotskyites, and Neocons. All shifty Beta Males and activist women calling the shots now. That in itself is an affront to survival.

  • Ian MacLean March 10, 2023 at 9:14 pm

    They themselves are also pawns, ultimately. These people always existed; insane radicals who embrace these schools of thought have been on campuses and in seedy locales for half a century.

    They just suddenly started getting a lot more money, and then when gay marriage was forced on the whole country, a whole lot of activists suddenly had nothing to base donation requests on. To avoid that painful experience of success killing cash flow, why not reach for the most obscene ideas available?

    And the money came. Oh did it come. From morons, yes, but also from some very rich, very powerful people who want strident division and social decay, and in this country in particular.

    If they can sufficiently break down order, if they can push enough agendas that make conservatives want to kill, they think they’ll eventually get the state of fear and degradation they’re seeking.

    And when national governments are unable to contain the violence or provide an environment in which basic needs can be met, “global institutions” can save the day in exchange for all the power.

    I genuinely think that’s what we’re dealing with.

    • Gregory March 12, 2023 at 5:50 am

      The absurdity of “their” positions leads me to consider this issue as deliberate provocation intended to also distract from the control grid being built around us .
      “Men can have babies” is right up there with “happily Owning nothing” while “eating bugs”.
      Is it all a psyop , like that subtle coercive line experiment ? -where conformity is induced …

      • Steve March 17, 2023 at 3:10 am

        Don’t think so. It’s just another wing of the Soros-funded “burn it all down” offensive. They have to destroy everything that exists and is of value so that they can “Build Back Better”.

  • Jonathan March 11, 2023 at 11:57 am

    It’s like everything concocted by the fascist globalists – elaborate designs and very extensive efforts all to bring down the current system and erect their nightmare horror story dream in which everyone is as enslaved under a worldwide globalist fascist oligarchy as possible. They are hellbent on pushing this as far as they can until they are destroyed – by rebellion, natural calamities, or God. That’s what they want. They’re daring everyone and the universe to stop them.

      A stop-gap that achieves nothing. The contagion has already started, meaning they have created the liquidity crisis they intended to create. They now have to at least look like they are trying to take action. If you think a crash is not going to happen, you are delusional. Also, I predicted this scenario last December, including the exact timing:

    Indeed! I agree with that.
    “…The trans movement is a vehicle for the absorbing of the youngest generation into a political cult”…. I think and add: this cult is also satanic and, of course, A part of Agenda 2030(including The Satanic Depopulation Agenda by any means necessary; transgender activism – like CV19 hoax – is a “tool”).
    We are dealing with an evil cult; don’t make mistake.
    Parents who are aware of this “woke” madness and those who resist globalist tyranny must do all they can to protect the kids.
    So, here is where we are:

    Just like Mao and the Red Guards that tried to eliminate the four old’s in Communist China, this group of collectivists are trying to eliminate the four old’s that are the pillars of what made the West the West.

    First it was tolerance, then morphed into acceptance. Now the mantra is participation. The collectivists see individuals as part of their hive construct. Dr Noah Hirari (WEF high priest and advisor to Dr. Schwab), has said and written as much.

    The collectivists want society to believe the resistance is futile, tip of the hat to Star Trek next generation. Resistance is not futile and these creatures know this.

    Want to defeat this vile excrement?

    1. Objective truth, logic and facts. Collectivists can not compete with this. For example on Trans- genderism. Do not care what you believe and feel that your are. I can prove physiologically and biologically that you either male or female, period.

    2. De-centralization and individuality. This drives collectivists crazy as they need to centralize in order to control. Purse States rights, community rights. In my case, Provincial rights as I live in Alberta. The opposite to collectivism is community. People choose to belong to a community, but are forced to belong to a collective.

    3. Competition. David Rockefeller once chimed, “competition is bad for business.”. Enough said.

    Some of my thoughts on the subject.
