If you forgot to celebrate a very important new American tradition this past Thanksgiving week, the White House is not happy with you.
Press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre and Secretary of State Antony Blinken addressed a “very” important issue that’s taking the nation by storm: Transgender Day of Remembrance.
On this Transgender Day of Remembrance, the faces of the White House asked Americans to mourn the loss of the 26 transgender Americans who were killed this year.
“Today on Transgender Day of Remembrance, we grieve the 26 transgender Americans who were killed this year,” Jean-Pierre said, adding, “Year after year, we see that these victims are disproportionately black women and women of color.”
“No one should face violence, live in fear, or be discriminated against simply for being themselves,” she finished.
“How many heterosexual people who haven’t changed genders died last year?” Pat Gray asks.
Keith Malinak notes that reportedly, 12 of the 26 transgender people Jean-Pierre referenced were murdered by their domestic partners. Two were shot by security guards during a robbery, and one was killed at an environmental protest by state troopers.
“They’re trying to make it sound like all 26 were hate crimes,” Gray says, unsurprised but disturbed. “I don’t want them killed by anybody. None of us do. But don’t make it sound like they’re being stalked and hunted by the rest of us, because they’re not.”
Another death was caused in Pennsylvania during a wellness check, when police were called for help during a mental health crisis. When the cops arrived, the now deceased got out of a car and aimed a gun at police, and the police had to shoot the individual.
“So it was basically suicide by cop,” Gray says.
Even if the deaths were all caused by hate crimes, which they’re not, they would make up .000000008% of the population being killed this year.
“And for that, we’re having a day of remembrance,” Gray mocks.
