Right-wing extremist groups and political candidates are spending millions of dollars to spread lies about transgender children along with the “grooming” narrative leading up to next Tuesday’s election, notes a new analysis from the Human Rights Campaign.The worst offenders include America First Legal, an organization run by former Donald Trump aide Stephen Miller; the American Principles Project, which features such big names on the far right as Maggie Gallagher and Terry Schilling; and Republican U.S.
Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, who is running for reelection and facing a tough challenge from Democrat Val Demings, currently a member of the U.S.
House.For instance, ads from America First Legal claim that President Joe Biden and other liberal politicians are “pushing” young people to take cross-sex hormones and are out to destroy women’s sports.
