The New Hampshire Democratic Party chairman claimed that some kids will be beaten to death or commit suicide if public schools in the state disclose to parents that their children are getting gender identity counseling.
What are the details?
Raymond Buckley made his claim on Twitter Friday while reacting to a comment about the issue, which is a campaign issue in the state.
“Should parents have the right to know if their children are receiving gender identity counseling at school, or is Manchester school district right to keep it secret from moms and dads?” the New Hampshire Journal wondered.
Conservative commentator Michael Graham replied, “The most interesting part of this story out of #NHPolitics is that [Democrat U.S. Rep. Chris Pappas] is unabashedly arguing that parents should NOT have the right to know about behavior of their own children.”
With that, Buckley declared, “You’re purposely going after children, endangering their lives, mental health & safety & it’s disgusting. Not all families are the same; some kids will be kicked out or beaten (to death) or commit suicide. All to try to get votes for Karoline? #NHPolitics”
Buckley was referring to Karoline Leavitt, the Republican nominee for New Hampshire’s 1st Congressional District; Pappas is the incumbent for the seat. Leavitt is against keeping parents in the dark while Pappas said it’s none of her business, WMUR-TV reported.
Graham shot back at Buckley: “The chair of @NHDems stating clearly the party’s position is that teachers should decide what parents are allowed to know about their own children. @RepChrisPappas voted Thursday to kill a requirement schools inform parents when their kids receive counseling at school.”
Buckley then dug into Graham: “You willfully refuse to accept the reality of LBGTQ kid’s [sic] lives depending on having a safe space vs parroting the false outrage of the moment. Absolutely disgusting.”
Graham gave it to back to Buckley again: “Not sure ‘Parents are domestic terrorists who will beat their gay children to death!’ is the winning message Democrats think it is.”
Leavitt told the New Hampshire Journal in response to Buckley’s tweet that “the Biden administration labeled parents as ‘domestic terrorists,’ and now the chair of the New Hampshire Democrat Party is claiming Granite State parents beat their kids to death.The Democrats’ hatred for parents who simply want to be involved in their children’s education is disgusting. It’s rooted in the fact that Democrats like Chris Pappas are funded by powerful teachers unions who want total control over our public education system. While Pappas continues to side with Joe Biden and radical bureaucrats, I will continue to stand with Granite State mothers and fathers.”
