Children at the Michelle Obama Neighborhood Library in Long Beach, California had a very special visitor over the weekend.
Many parents, as well as local conservatives, were upset by children being exposed to this kind of indoctrination into the gender fluid lifestyle (with a bit of eye of newt mixed in) but one must remember, this IS California.
What are we teaching kids in school? Demonic teachings alive in Long Beach. I’m outraged they would allow this. pic.twitter.com/Q72nhnWbBo

One of those who was wondering what in Hades was going on just happens to be the man who is mounting a challenge against the goofy granny with the James Brown hair, Maxine Waters.
Omar Navarro is demanding answers as to why this bizarre freak was given the opportunity to dump a cauldron of steaming moral degeneracy all over impressionable young minds.

The Long Beach Press-Telegram provides details in the story “Long Beach library hosts Drag Queen Story Hour, controversy ensues”:
Federal Election Commission records show Navarro is raising money to challenge longtime Democratic incumbent Maxine Waters in the 43rd Congressional District.
Long Beach Library Services Director Glenda Williams could not be reached immediately for comment, although interim city spokesman Kevin Lee said Williams would be able to speak Tuesday afternoon. Xochi Mochi’s own social media posts regarding the event, including an Instagram post describing her own enthusiasm for her time at the library, were still online.
“It’s so important to have representation and normalize all the letters in LGBTQIA+ in everyday lives,” she wrote on Instagram. “I saw so many excited faces it filled my heart with so much joy and hope to come back again soon!”
On Instagram, Xochi Mochi describes herself not as a demon, but as a “Los Angeles based Killer Klown from Outer Space.” That’s a reference to a comedic 1988 movie in which the titular Killer Klowns invade an American town.
Long Beach Library’s official Twitter account does not show a photo of Xochi Mochi as of Tuesday morning. On Facebook, library officials published a statement on the controversy.
“The storytime was very well attended, with 60-70 people in attendance,” the post read. “Unfortunately, the social media post the City of Long Beach Public Library shared to celebrate LBGTQ History Month received several hateful and harmful comments to the LGBTQ community, mostly from those outside of Long Beach, and ultimately the City decided to remove the post as it was no longer a productive conversation.”
Long Beach isn’t the only city where similar events have taken place. The library system credits Michelle Tea and Radar Productions of San Francisco with creating the Drag Queen Story Hour concept.
“In spaces like this, kids are able to see people who defy rigid gender restrictions and imagine a world where people can present as they wish, where dress up is real,” reads a statement on Drag Queen Story Hour’s webpage. Organizers advertise the possibility of story hour events in Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York City and northern New Jersey.
Michelle Obama Neighborhood Library opened in September 2016, replacing a vacant movie theater at 5870 Atlantic Ave.
What in the HELL is this country coming to?
