Christian activist group says drag shows are the left’s version of ‘blackface’

In an email that was distributed to supporters this Monday, the evangelical, anti-LGBTQ activist group Family Research Council (FRC) declared that the left is conducting its own “war on women” with its advocacy for LGBTQ rights, JoeMyGod first reported.

The Left’s newest “war on women” has a sinister past. Today, cloaked in LGBT activism, virtue signaling, and the old standby “tolerance,” the woke have turned the cancelation of women into an artform — an artform that is unfortunately centuries old and an embarrassment to any reasonable person.

 

Sarcasm is defined as “the caustic use of words, often in a humorous way, to mock someone or something.” At the beginning of the 19th century, sarcasm as an artform was raised to new heights. An American theatrical form called minstrelsy rose to prominence.

 

The minstrel show was based on the comic reenactment of racial stereotypes, where entertainers would dress in “blackface,” make-up intended to caricature African Americans with black skin and highly exaggerated white lips. An easy name change from “minstrel show” to “drag show,” and all the old stuff still works.

 

The over-the-top make-up is still the mainstay of the show, an unattractive, clown-like façade that no woman would ever wear. Clothing and shoes just add to the circus ensemble, where wild colors and sexually revealing outfits are the order of the day. Huge extravagant wigs top everything off.

 

What’s the point of it all? Well, as in the minstrel days, the Left wants to reinforce stereotypes, making fun of women in general and of “normal” women in particular. They love attacking women with values and make fun of religion and families.

 

So why is “womanface” celebrated while we abhor “blackface” and all it represents? The Left, it appears, will put up with anything that denigrates old-fashioned values, including an all-out war on women.
