"Last night on the news. And why it matters Jason was was in he's head researcher. And he and Sarah. We're talking about the stats of hate crimes. And how hate crimes include numbers from like prison riot? Yeah. Yeah. It's it's crazy to to be able to quote, any of these and have it mean what the public thinks. It means do you have anything on that? Chad. Did you look into any of those kinds of stats? I tend to focus mostly on LGBT related fats because racial and Jewish crimes are a little bit different. I did research into the AD released a huge surge in anti-semitism last year before we saw more of what we're seeing today from congresspeople, and that sort of thing, but for example, there was a Jewish man who had her called in several hundred bomb threats and each one of those was included as an incident and yells in the NHL numbers. And I was looking at I don't know if you remember there was a young man, his name was Steph one and headline that we saw for a while was that she was kicked out of his home for being gay and she was now homeless, and she was torn he wanted to college. Oh, yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Well, I I researched that and the church was that he was eighteen when the story happens he actually came out, and he was fifteen she screamed with his parents churches. Do you want homosexuality? He left on his own because this story that he said, I was kicked out. I was rejected by my family. He got fifty thousand dollars from donors. She got a free ride to college. And ellen. I invited him on the stage and celebrated him as an algebra Chiro. There's a huge benefit personally to every minority. But specifically the LGBT to be able to say is survived the hate in this country. And it's become so important that to say I've never experienced crap like me is devalued its much your needs to social benefits. I just saying I survived cry. And one of the things that I always point out is if we have such a small amount of reporting is it. That so many LGBT activists will very loudly say that they have experienced multiple hit crimes. When it's just simply as a possible, we're talking about twelve hundred people out of three hundred twenty five million. That's interesting checks. I think the Justice Jesse small at story a lot of people on on the conservative side of taking you know, the media doing a terrible job with it. Which is certainly a big part of the story. But I think this developing incentive to climb up. The intersection -ality ladder and show how you know show victimhood has become the the trophy you go for in this society and those incentives. I think are are even a bigger story than anything. The media is doing. Absolutely. When when he released this story, and and and I've said that I Don I didn't necessarily judge who immediately stood up for him or who sympathized with them because human compassion. Once we started to see things that were problematic, and they started to be police and yellow people who questioned are asked questions. That's when I started to be frustrated, but the truth is that once this story came out. Dozens and dozens of dozens of activists and celebrities and politicians all suddenly poured out there love to this person. And that is from a human perspective that is a very difficult thing to to be strong enough to walk away from it. Imagine the whole world telling you how brave you are at how wonderful you are. And how you are the voice of a generation human rights campaign and Chad Griffin stuff, the president of the largest LGBT organization is thank you you speak for all of the clear pure see people in the world and America all the all the kids who face hate every day. Don't have a voice can now feel safe because you have a voice that's a very intoxicating position to be in that. The leftists so used to people not questioning that. It's it seems like a very easy thing to go after and I'll and I'll be honest. I believe that a very often they believe these things are true. Even though they set it up. There's this mindset in their head of. I'm just asking not what I know is happening every day because I have the power to bring it to light. Even though it didn't happen to me. I am bringing a voice to it. Because I know that it's happening everywhere. Yup. So what do you think will happen to him in the gay community? We only have one minute. Do you think Jesse is going to pay a price for this? Or are they gonna give him a soft landing? I think we're gonna I'm surprised by the sort of the negative. You know, the kind of I can't believe he did this the truth is that everyone has sort of baffled and hurt, but they're switching it to. Look how excited conservatives are to pounce, and this doesn't mean crimes aren't real. And I believe that's I think that will ever happens Tim, legally kill promptly fade away. But the story is going to be more focused on this just shows us how important it.

Like we had not seen before LGBTQ people, allies, Democrats independents and some Republicans standing up and saying, we won't stand for this hate and voted to oust Pat Mkhori.
