Greg Abbott on LGBTQ ‘human rights crisis’ petition: ‘The UN can go pound sand’

A globalist effort to subvert the sovereignty of Texas in the name of alphabet activism was met with a terse response from the Lone Star State’s governor.

Repeated culture war victories in Florida have often left Texans concerned over leadership following in the fight for freedom where they should be out front. Now, as Texas Gov. Greg Abbott bolstered his conservative credentials with a “Come and Take It” attitude against the White House over border security, a six-word offering for the United Nations fully embodied the spirit of “Don’t Mess With Texas.”

“The UN can go pound sand,” stated Abbott on X Sunday in response to a report on a “Joint Allegation Letter” issued in late January.

According to a press release from the activist group Equality Texas, their letter was submitted to “17 independent experts, working groups and special rapporteurs” all with the United Nations as they lamented the “record-breaking legislative session” from 2023 where “over 140 anti-LGBTQIA+ bills” were filed.

“We are writing to you on behalf of the American Civil Liberties Union of Texas, Equality Texas, GLAAD, the Human Rights Campaign, and The University of Texas at Austin School of Law Human Rights Clinic to raise alarm about the deteriorating human rights situation for LGBTQIA+ persons in the state of Texas, United States of America, due to hostile rhetoric and legislation form the Texas state government,” the letter asserted.

Of course, their allegations hinged upon putting their Marxist ideologies ahead of protecting children and women as the seven bills that had passed into law included the banning of: genital mutilation of minors; DEI programs in public universities; men competing in women’s college sports; sexually oriented performances (i.e. drag shows) on public property in view of a minor; and sexually explicit books in schools and local governments from enacting their own ordinances in defiance of state prohibitions.

The letter also lamented SB 763 which permitted schools to accept religious chaplains as volunteers “to provide support, services, and programs for students as assigned by the board of trustees of the district or the governing body of the school.”

“Put together, the Bills are a systemic attack on the fundamental rights, dignities, and identities of LGBTQIA+ persons that opens the gates for discrimination by both public and private actors,” argued the activist groups that called for the United Nations to “make inquiries into this backsliding of human rights of LGBTQIA+ persons in the state of Texas, United States of America.”

They also appeared to encourage pressure be put upon the federal government to encroach upon the sovereignty of Texas as they called out how, “the United States federal government has failed to adopt necessary and adequate measures to prevent these abuses. While some federal courts have placed injunctions on some of the Bills, the federal government has not adopted a proper response to the systemic attack on LGBTQIA+ persons living in the state of Texas.”

While some argued that Abbott’s ire should have been directed at the varied activist groups who’d see their rainbow standard raised over every institution, others were pleased to see the governor holding fast for common sense legislation and against globalist pressure.
