Senator Mallory McMorrow: “We Will Not Let Hate Win”

Michigan Democrat blasts GOP ‘groomer’ slurs and school censorship efforts in powerful speech.

After a Republican state senator in Michigan accused a Democratic legislator Mallory McMorrow of supporting attempts to “groom” and “sexualize” children in a campaign fundraising email, state Sen. McMorrow took her response to the floor of the state capitol.

“I sat on it for a while wondering, ‘Why me?’ And then I realized – I am the biggest threat to your hollow, hateful scheme,” she said in remarks on April 19, 2022. “You can’t claim that you are targeting marginalized kids in the name of ‘parental rights’ if another parent is standing up to say ‘no’.”

“People who are different are not the reason our roads are in bad shape, or healthcare costs are too high, or teachers are leaving the profession.

“We cannot let hateful people tell you otherwise to scapegoat and deflect from the fact that they’re not doing anything to fix the real issues that impact peoples lives.”

Every elected Democrat needs to take this speech, make it their own, and start fighting as hard as Sen. Mallory McMorrow.
