‘Is This A Joke?’: Tennis Legend Slams Interior Secretary’s Video With Drag Queen | Eastern North Carolina Now

    Publisher's Note: This post appears here courtesy of the The Daily Wire. The author of this post is Katie Jerkovich.

    Tennis legend Martina Navratilova slammed Interior Secretary Deb Haaland after the Biden administration official posted a video alongside a drag queen for LGBT History Month.

    "Is this a joke? The pathetic parody of women continues," Navratilova posted on X.

    One person replied to the tennis legend that at one time "butch lesbians," faced similar derision and that "we should all embrace each other." The commenter suggested the person was not a "trans person," but instead a "drag queen."

    "And how exactly are we supposed to know the difference?" the tennis pro, who is a lesbian, replied. "And please do not compare males to butch females. Thank you."

    Another person claimed her criticism meant meant she was not part of the "LGBTQIA rights movement" and just wanted "to benefit from the work that others, including trans activists, have done to secure your rights."

    "Lol! Really?" the tennis star replied. "And which people would that be? Because I was on the front line before there was a front line. And you will never convince me to stop fighting for equal rights for women- thank you."

    The video Navratilova was responding to featured Haaland talking to "outdoor advocate and climate movement icon [Pattie Gonia] to discuss how places like [Stonewall National Monument] help tell our country's full and honest story."

    In the video, the drag queen claimed "queer rights are more under attack than ever. And I think if we don't acknowledge the past, we're bound to repeat. So, at a place like Stonewall, this beautiful place, it's a place where so much discrimination and hatred occurred against the queer community, but it's also a place where resistance and queer joy and queer liberation happened."

    Navratilova has been very outspoken about trans-identifying males competing in female sports. She blasted trans-identifying athlete Lia Thomas after the swimmer said critics are pushing "transphobic beliefs" under the "guise of feminism."

    The tennis legend responded on X to a TMZ headline that read, "LIA THOMAS Fires Back At Critics ...YOU'RE USING 'FEMINISM' TO HIDE TRANSPHOBIA!!!"

    "Lia Thomas Says Her Critics Using 'Feminism' Claims To Hide Transphobia," Navratilova wrote. "NEWSFLASH Lia - it's not fair."

    "We shouldn't have to explain it to you over and over," she added. "Also - stop explaining feminism to feminists...."

It has been far too many years since the Woke theology interlaced its canons within the fabric of the Indoctrination Realm, so it is nigh time to ask: Does this Representative Republic continue, as a functioning society of a self-governed people, by contending with the unusual, self absorbed dictates of the Woke, and their vast array of Victimhood scenarios?
  Yes, the Religion of Woke must continue; there are so many groups of underprivileged, underserved, a direct result of unrelenting Inequity; they deserve everything.
  No; the Woke fools must be toppled from their self-anointed pedestal; a functioning society of a good Constitutional people cannot withstand this level of "existential" favoritism as it exists now.
  I just observe; with this thoughtful observation: What will happen "when the Vikings are breeching our walls;" how do the Woke react?
