Republicans Waste No Time Using Monkeypox To Attack LGBT Community

Sponsored Post Vitamin D2 Canada Persia
As the monkeypox disease continues to make its viral outbreak, the Republican party is unabashedly correlating it to their 'groomer' narrative as they identify it as a sexually transmitted disease in the gay community and a tool of the 'groomers' they've been so concerned about. Ana Kasparian and Emma Vigeland discuss on The Young Turks. Watch LIVE weekdays 6-8 pm ET. http://youtube.com/theyoungturks/live

"“Anti-grooming” extremists are going all-in on monkeypox, ever since the CDC said earlier this week that they’ve identified the first two cases in children in the U.S.

For months, the GOP and far-right fringe have been trafficking in tired slurs casting the gay community as inherently predatory, especially where children are concerned. Then when monkeypox cases began ticking up among gay and bisexual men earlier this summer, the far-right pounced on their latest “opportunity” to push anti-LGBTQ hate into the mainstream.

Now, they’re baselessly declaring that monkeypox is exposing the “real” epidemic: widespread sexual molestation of children by gay men. CDC Director Rochelle Walensky said Friday during a virtual event with the Washington Post that two children had become the first in the country to contract the virus, and said both were “doing well” and were being treated with the antiviral drug tecovirimat."
