Well, Of Course NCTE Doesn’t Want to Talk About Hate Crimes

From Queer Channel Media:

In December 2018, the National Center for Transgender Equality, located in a downtown D.C. office building, received three threats in less than 24 hours, including one promising to “rid the earth of scum and garbage like you.”

NCTE media relations manager Gillian Branstetter told the Blade this week that the group decided not to publicly disclose the incident. Branstetter said the group reported the incident to police and the Post found out about it by obtaining the police report.

“While I recognize the relative newsworthiness of threats against a national organization, we are far more concerned – and would urge reporters to be far more concerned – with the epidemic of violence impacting transgender people who do not have the privilege of a public profile and institutional capacity,” Branstetter said.

Or – and I’m just taking a wild, but educated, guess here….

perhaps The Quisling and her minions don’t want to discuss hate crimes.

Why?

Glad you asked.

Any such discussion will cause people who understand that (1) no hate crime law has ever prevented any hate crime; (2) no hate crime law ever will; and (3) employment discrimination laws do not stop all bigots from discriminating but are known to stop some people from discriminating who otherwise would to ask why NCTE sold out not just trans people but ALL LGBT people by rolling over and accepting a hate crime law (and gay-only military ban repeal) in 2009 instead of the trans-inclusive ENDA that trans people not named Mara Keisling and who are not wholly-owned subsidiaries of the Human Right Scampaign fought for at great personal and professional cost.
