Democratic National Convention to Feature First-Ever ‘Transgender’ Speaker

PHILADELPHIA — The Democratic National Convention is set to feature its first-ever “transgender” speaker this Thursday as a man who identifies as a woman is scheduled to take the stage in support of Hillary Clinton.

Tim McBride, who goes by the name Sarah, serves as the national press secretary for the Human Rights Campaign and is also a volunteer on the steering committee of Trans United for Hillary.

McBride explained in 2012 that he felt he was transgender as a child, but buried his struggle with his identity in his love for politics.

“I told myself that if I could make ‘Tim’ worthwhile for other people by changing the world, that being ‘Tim’ would have been worthwhile,” he wrote in an open letter published by the outlets The Eagle and Delaware Liberal. “I also thought that, on a superficial level, the perks and privileges of being an elected official would bring me some level of happiness that I couldn’t otherwise achieve.”

But McBride said that matters came to a head while serving as student body president.

“By mid-fall, it had gotten to the point where I was living in my own head. With everything I did, from the mundane to the exciting, the only way I was able to enjoy it was if I re-imagined doing it as a girl,” he outlined. “I wasn’t really living anymore. My existence was experienced through imagination.”

Therefore, in his quest to find his “true self,” McBride began present himself as a woman and asked to be referred to under his chosen name, Sarah.

He went on to intern at the White House and also worked at the Center for American Progress. The now 25-year-old, who lives in Washington, D.C., currently serves as the press secretary for the homosexual and transgender advocacy group Human Rights Campaign.

According to reports, the congressional “LGBT caucus” decided to include a transgender speaker at the DNC this year, and McBride was consequently considered as a speaker.

“I’m honored for this opportunity to share my story and to be the first transgender person to speak at a major party convention,” he said in a statement. “I’m so proud to stand with the LGBT Caucus and speak out in support of Hillary Clinton, because we know she stands with us.”

Human Rights Campaign President Chad Griffin is also expected to speak Thursday evening. The group endorsed Clinton in January, and notes in a press release that a record 27 delegates at this week’s convention identify as transgender.

As previously reported, last week’s Republican National Convention featured PayPal co-founder Peter Thiel, who declared to those gathered that he is “proud to be gay.”

“Of course, every American has a unique identity,” Thiel said. “I am proud to be gay. I am proud to be a Republican. But most of all, I am proud to be an American.”

His declaration was met with cheers and chants of “USA.”

Some have consequently expressed disappointment in the Republican Party and its increasing similarity to the Democratic Party.

Deuteronomy 22:5 reads, “The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the Lord thy God.”

    Hillary Clinton Rehearsing Convention Speech In Dozens Of Different Dialects

    After hiring a plethora of speech coaches to assist her in preparing for her big Thursday night address, sources confirmed Tuesday that Hillary Clinton is practicing her Democratic National Convention speech in dozens of different U.S. dialects.

    “Normally I just adapt my drawl to mimic whatever pitiful populace I’m currently addressing,” she explained to her team of trainers. “But listen, this is the biggest speech of my life and the entire country will be watching—I have to be able to nail every significant accent in the land, at will, so these …….. people will think I’m authentic.” – BB

    God said ‘Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His Righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you’ with regards to having ‘things’ required for life. God laid the pattern for a healthy nation but somewhere along the line people/politicians said “We know better…Let’s make sure we have ‘things’ and then we will deal with the importance of feigned morality later.” Note where our nation now stands…people are subservient to the government (and many love it)…they are our masters and even those that profess Christianity appear to be reprobates and afraid to stand for anything but the continued decline of our nation. Read Isaiah and Jeremiah (among other places dealing with a nation that forgets God in the OT) and look at the principles contained therein…the accurate description of Israel’s sickened state directly mirror our nation. Sick from the head to the foot, strangers devour the land, one man chases a multitude as they flee in fear, people are in fear even when no man chases, ‘religious heads’ prophesy peace peace, people are ignorant of the Word, we are clean in our own eyes, we refuse truth and embrace deceit, we know longer hide our sin neither are we ashamed, violence fills the earth, we bring in the names of false gods and try to remove the name of the LORD from the land, people declare as our sin increases ‘see there is no God because He hasn’t rained fire from heaven on us…where is His supposed judgment?’ while they can’t see we are like the proverbial frog in a boiling pot…on and on and on…Christians better get back in the book and awaken to righteousness as salt and light…and stop trying to make people feel comfortable in their sin as they perish.

      Is not for the same reason that Satan was kicked out of heaven? And he found plante of followers here. But there’s more gift from God than what the Devil can take.

  • In polite society we address people as they want to be addressed. Good manners require us to use the correct pronouns. This site’s intentional disrespect is just one of the reasons that we (LGBT citizens and taxpayers) won the culture war.

    Aw, they’re going to let a mentally ill person, Tim, get up there and speak his mind. LOL What a terrible idea. Continuing to try and normalize this illness is disgusting. But it will go on.

    One party might seem better than the other, but both parties are in support of homosexuality, transpervertism, etc., so they’re both equally evil and enemies of God Almighty.

    She-he fits right in with Hilourious gender.

  • Chet

    Although his face is as cute as a girl’s he’ll always be a man cause that’s the way God Almighty formed him in his momma’s womb and he’ll depart this life as he was born. A man can willfully cut everything off and yet, he is still as much a man, regardless. Sometimes, via car accidents, war and cancer etc., men lose such parts, yet , they remain men, period… The people so affected by this modern day movement are terribly deceived, and who, other that the Devil, is the greatest deceiver of men… Nevertheless, God’s love is abundant and free and extends to all us sinners via his only begotten Son, the Lord Jesus Christ of Calvary. And he, alone, can break bondages and set men free in addition to forgiving and even forgetting their sins and providing an eternal home in Heaven at the end of life’s journey one day…
