Parents Push Back Against Sell Out of Family Values by Squish Republicans

Former Wyoming GOP House Speaker pushes the compromised mentality in newspaper column. But Wyoming MassResistance parents respond with common sense!

By Published on March 1, 2024

Conservatives in nearly a dozen Western “red” states are fuming about this: Even when there’s a super-majority of Republicans in their state legislature, it’s difficult to pass common-sense pro-family bills that the Left opposes. It seems a lot of Republican legislators, especially in leadership, are covert liberals — and the voters have not paid sufficient attention. This phenomenon has even gotten national press.

It’s a particular problem in Wyoming, where the legislature has only 8 Democrats out of 93 members. Wyoming voters recently booted RINO Liz Cheney from Congress, but the State House is still full of traitors to the GOP.

What’s going on in the minds of these phony Republicans? Too many of them started out ideologically muddle-headed, and then bought into the leftist talking points. Unfortunately, not enough citizens confront that rubbish. But Wyoming MassResistance decided to step up!

Former GOP House Speaker Attacks Pro-Family Bills

Tom Lubnau is the former Republican Speaker of the House of Representatives in Wyoming. He was also the State Rep from Gillette, which is a solidly conservative area. Lubnau now occasionally writes columns for Cowboy State Daily, a popular right-leaning statewide news and commentary site.

Lubnau was (and still is, given his continued influence) part of the problem. Earlier this month, he wrote an absurd column attacking the efforts by actual conservatives in the legislature to protect children from the lunatic LGBT agenda that is engulfing society.

Titled, “Legislating Private Parts Is Popular This Legislative Session,” it reflects the odious mentality of the RINO establishment. Lubnau bashed three much-needed pro-family bills that were before the legislature at that time (but unfortunately did not pass):

  • Bill HB 50 defined a man and a woman by their actual biology, not their so-called “gender identity.” It also defined “father” and “mother” and would have restricted use of women’s public restrooms and locker rooms to actual women. These clear definitions are necessary because the Left has forced its radical “gender” ideology into public spaces (and even public documents).
  • Bill HB 68 would have repealed the obscenity exemption for schools, libraries, etc. As everyone knows, depraved school and library officials are using this exemption to freely distribute horrible pornography to vulnerable children without the legal penalty that the rest of the general public faces.
  • And Bill 88 would have made it illegal to publicly display, exhibit, or post, etc. obscene material where others can easily see it. The text of the bill referred to physical spaces, not electronic communication.

Ridiculous Leftist Arguments

Lubnau made the preposterous claim that these bills are about “regulating private parts” and “people’s bedrooms.” He equated these bills to the anti-sodomy laws (which outlawed certain perverted private sexual acts) — even though all three bills were about obvious public issues.

Lubnau claimed that legally defining “mother” to be a “parent of the female sex” and “father” to be a parent of the male sex “seems strangely reminiscent of an Orwell novel.” He stupidly had it exactly backwards. Orwell wrote about government changing the language to support lies, not reinforcing our language to tell the truth!

To attempt to bolster his “private parts” argument, Lubnau brought up a “right to abortion” bill, HB76, which was sponsored by Democrats but had little chance of passage and had nothing to do with the others.

Wyoming MassResistance Strikes Back With a Rebuttal

When this column came out, it certainly became a topic of conversation in Gillette!

Lubnau is a well-known GOP leadership figure writing in a major statewide conservative publication. The column was an embarrassment to the people in his district.

So our two Wyoming MassResistance chapter leaders in Gillette, Ed and Susan Sisti, wrote a rebuttal. Titled, “Legislating Public Consequences is Essential to Civil Society,” it was published in Cowboy State Daily last week. (For some reason it’s labeled a “Letter to the Editor” even though it’s the length of a normal op-ed article.)

Our Wyoming MassResistance chapter leaders didn’t pull any punches. They excoriated Lubnau for trafficking in “the weak arguments of corporate lobbyists and libertarian accommodationists.” In particular, they directly took on his absurd “private parts” reasoning:

People’s private lives used to be private, but now LGBT activists insist on making their private lives — and private parts — very public.

From the obscene books in public libraries, to the explicit curricula in public schools, to the very public displays of obscenity, depravity, and debauchery in PRIDE parades and festivals, Wyomingites (especially their children) cannot escape other people’s pushing their privates in public spaces.

And they concluded with:

The whole LGBT agenda has gone from the bedroom to the boardroom and is now invading the classroom.

If homosexuals and transgenders would have kept their privates private, there would have never been a need for the legislature to engage public debates to seek public consequences to stem the health, moral, and cultural collapse which has ensued.

Needless to say, the reaction from local conservatives has been overwhelmingly positive. People are thanking the Sistis and Wyoming MassResistance for stepping up and confronting the RINO mentality that has taken over their legislature — and telling the truth!

Final Thoughts

Readers may recall our report several months ago on Idaho MassResistance parents confronting their RINO State Rep who voted against a bill to protect children in libraries. His “No” vote kept the bill from becoming law in Idaho! He tried to defend his vote using some leftist talking points he likely picked up in the State House, but the parents aren’t buying it at all. These legislators need to be directly challenged.

Idaho MassResistance mother confronts her RINO State Rep with the porn being pushed in libraries.

This needs to happen across the Western states. Legislators must be directly held accountable for their actions and their statements. MassResistance is committed to helping local pro-family people turn this terrible problem around!
