Nebraska Republican lawmakers were finally able to snap a months-long filibuster to protect children, but not before one leftist legislator captured the opposition in one unhinged clip.
After 80 days without bill passage, the Nebraska state Senate voted 33-15, with one member not voting, on Legislative Bill 574, also known as the Let Them Grow Act, banning so-called “gender affirming care” on anyone younger than 19-years-old. With certain exceptions that included physical disorders, the bill banned genital mutilation, puberty blockers and any non-genital procedures such as breast or facial augmentation with an amendment added to ban abortion after 12 weeks.
Nebraska state Sen. Machaela Cavanaugh (D) was among those that continued protesting the passage of the bill Friday, protests that led to at least six arrests, when from her lectern she slowly worked her way into a frenetic chant repeating the cries of the activists seeking to obstruct the government function.
“Transgender people belong here, we need trans people, we love trans people,” she repeated on a loop, building her way up to waving her arms and then pounding her hands.
At the end of her flailing, Cavanaugh looked directly toward the camera and declare, “You matter. You matter and I am fighting for you. And I will not stop. I will not stop today, I will not stop tomorrow. You are loved. You matter. You belong here.”
In one reaction to the senator’s display, a social media user quipped, “Siri, show me what it would look like if Dr. Frankenstein combined every stereotype about progressive white women and brought the creature to life.”

Of course, her ostentatious prostrating for the rainbow mafia also included taking shots at Republicans as she attempted to shame them for passing protections from life-altering procedures.
“Your children are posting things on social media, your children are calling you, colleagues. You have to live with your vote,” Cavanaugh said. “You have to live with the role that you play in history in the making today. You have to live with the fact that you vote to take away people’s rights. You have to live with that. The rest of us have to live with the implications of that, but you have to live with that.”
She wasn’t alone in hoisting the standard for the prominent “T” of the LGBT-etc crowd as state Sen. Megan Hunt (I) had spoken up about her opposition to the ban and said, “Reasonable people can have disagreements on whether we should ban abortion at 20 weeks or 12 weeks, or even six weeks. But some of this basic civil rights sh-t, I’m just like: What the f–k is wrong with you? I don’t talk to them. I don’t acknowledge them. I don’t want to work with them. I literally don’t think that they’re good people.”
Hunt has claimed that her child is trans, “And this bill, colleagues, is such an affront to me personally and would violate my rights to parent my child in Nebraska.”
Nebraska Gov. Jim Pillen (R) had indicated his support for the bill which included an emergency clause for enactment the day after signing.
Meanwhile, the reactions to Cavanaugh’s rant continued to pour in.
Where are the nice men with the straitjackets?
