Rep. Mary Miller of Illinois has repeatedly urged her constituents to judge politicians based on the company they keep.
“A politician is known by their votes and by who they hang around with,” she told supporters just this week. She used the same line at a Republican gathering in March, and last month she said, “I always told my children that I could tell a lot about who they are by who they hang around with. It’s the same thing in D.C. with the adults.”
She’s also very concerned about “the children,” regularly accusing the Left of being “anti-child.”
“There is no trend more disturbing than the left’s push to talk to very young children about their sexuality and indoctrinate them with radical gender ideology,” she tweeted last month. “Parents are horrified by this, and conservatives must protect children from this extreme agenda!”

One of Miller’s top campaign volunteers, Bradley Graven, also has an interest in the youth of America — one that landed him in jail.
Graven, who collected over 50% of the signatures in Miller’s reelection campaign and regularly drives the Congresswoman and her family to and from events, was arrested in 2003 for indecent solicitation of a child in a sting operation, after making plans online to meet what he thought was a 12-year-old boy in a parking lot for sex. Graven was actually talking to a police officer; he pleaded guilty and was convicted and sentenced to 40 days in prison and two years of probation.
Miller’s “protect the children” message, which more often than not has damaging effects on LGBTQ youth, is now being criticized as hypocritical.
As the Washington Examiner further notes, “a summer camp run by her family featured twice-removed Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore as a speaker. Moore came under fire during his 2017 GOP Senate bid after nine women accused him of inappropriate sexual or social conduct, some of whom were under the age of 18.”
And campaign finance reports show that Miller’s husband, state Rep. Chris Miller, gave $5,000 to former Illinois state House candidate Tom McCullagh, “who dropped out of his race following accusations of grooming an underage person.”
Miller is endorsed by former President Donald Trump, and is expected to appear alongside him at a campaign event in June.
Media still seems to be ignoring the fact that massive numbers of well known Republicans either have a history of, or close ties to child predators.
‘In 1947, California was the first state to create a sex offender registry. Until July 2021, anyone convicted of being a sex offender in the state had to register for life with no exceptions. Now, for the first time, offenders can petition to be removed from the list.’
So the Democrats passed the legislation.
Who are Democrats protecting here? The predator or the children?
‘My comeback is weak, and sad, blah blah blah…’
Bring some substance to the rebuttal.
I live in CA and can tell you that law you are making up was never actually a thing, like at all.
You’re the definition of Fake News.
It in indeed true. Would you like me to cite sources for you? You can’t do the research yourself?
Ignorance at the highest level.
A s of January 1, 2021, California has enacted new guidelines on when sex offenders may petition for their removal from the registry:
Tier One sex offenders may be eligible to be removed from the state sex offender registry after 10 years.
Tier Two sex offenders may be removed after 20 years.
Tier Three offenders are still subject to lifetime registration requirements.
These new guidelines came into place as a result of Senate Bill 384. Registered sex offenders now can ask for removal from the sex offender registry once they’ve completed their minimum registration period.
Intruded by Democrats. All passed by California Democrats.
Democrats aren’t protecting our children.
@gaysfortrump, if you did your actual research, you would have answered your own questions… but since you don’t want answers, guess somebody had to FINISH your research.
It was done because, EVERY, offense that was sexual was on there. The legislation you are referencing broke it up into three levels of severity.
The first level, where you stay on the registry for 10 years, was for the least severe offences. Stuff like misdemeanor sexual battery, indecent exposure. Stuff that could very well have happened by accident, but you were still charged with the offense.
The second level, 20 years on the registry, is for moderately severe offenses. Lewdness with a minor under 14, non forced sodomy with minor under 14 years old. (Which I did find a bit strange, until I saw some an example of 15yo and 13 yo experimenting and the 13yo’s parents filed charges.)
The final level is the lifetime registration. Obviously Rape and child sexual trafficking are on there. Some other examples are pedophiles and those who are serial offenders (even of some of the least severe crimes).
There you go. The more you know…(insert shooting star with a rainbow tail).
Calm down. The argument wasn’t about the tier system.
The argument was that Democrats sponsored the bill. In what form was that bill protecting underage victims?
You’re gross. Sick individual. Your response is truly sick. Downplaying the severity of the offenses, and no respect to the victims.
‘ Stuff like misdemeanor sexual battery, indecent exposure. Stuff that could very well have happened by accident, but you were still charged with the offense.’
Very well have happened by accident. Continue making excuses vs the offensive behavior that wasn’t by accident. You’re sick.
@gaysfortrump, bless your poor little twisted heart. Pumpkin, we all see you for who and what you are. So, unfortunately, you don’t get sprinkles on your “Participation Trophy” ice cream cone… only winners get sprinkles.
My guess is you’re on sex offender registry. Gross to make excuses for predators. Like It was some ‘accident’. Do you have no faith in court system?
Your response speaks volumes. Sick. And lack maturity. Red flags.
You think you’re mature? BalltoSteve answered and corrected you and you reacted like a child.
Okay, yes. I’m the immature one. Because a mature, level headed individual would respond with:
‘bless your poor little twisted heart. Pumpkin, we all see you for who and what you are. So, unfortunately, you don’t get sprinkles on your “Participation Trophy” ice cream cone… only winners get sprinkles.’
So now you are defending your maturity with “But he did it first!!” lol Ironically he hadn’t actually done it first.
And all that “you’re a sicko!” ad hominem that you directed at BaltoSteve really was childish.
Especially since you had your baby tantrum AFTER you had already responded to that same post in a much more level headed manner. It was very strange, really. Like you have split personality disorder or something.
How did that happen? Did you initially decide to be level headed about it and then thought “better” of it and decided instead to slip into embarrassing histrionics while forgetting to delete the original response?
Get off your high horse. My point was never ‘he did It first’.
It’s his immature response that I was attacking.
And he is a sick individual downplaying sex crimes as some sort of accident. Let’s be real, did he spare Justice Brett Kavanaugh with that excuse?
Step down off your high horse. No one cares to hear your bully evaluations. As if you are mocking mental health. Must make you proud to feel so superior. (In your own head).
So @GayForTrump / M*ntalMarcy / BennyTheHill / Barry / blah blah blah is back. Latest “other” screenname is foxtrot.charly.uniform.kilo
Do not be fooled folks. A leopard never changes its spots.
Just to be on point. No matter if you a Dem or from the GOF (Grand Old Failed) party, if you a child predator you belong in jail / hell. And I agree with @Cam’s point.
@gaysfortrump, sweetie, again, we see you for who and what you are. You can’t hide behind this façade of faux outrage and name calling. You try and cow your those who call out your little self righteous childlike tantrums. And I would like to think that at least you are getting paid for these ineffectual attempts to “Own those Libs.” That there is a check involved with this regurgitation of sad and hypocritical outrage. I can at least have a modicum of respect someone trying to do that hustle and make that coin. Because the other options are that you are doing this because you have nothing else in your life or that this is a limited bot.
Can I get a free mental heath observation from Gays for Trumpcans?
Translation: Republicans are child predators and you’re trying to deflect from that. But we get it, that’s your job as a right wing troll account.
It’s adorable you claim Democrats are trying to protect anybody since everyone on the CA predator list is public. LOL But nice try troll.
As always, your troll game is sad and weak.
No one is trying to talk to young children about their sexuality and to Ind
And to indoctrinate them with radical gender identity.
They have to lie about the issue instead of honesty.
Gay 4 moron. No one is defending sexual predators. We should be protecting rights of everyone.
Some issues are too complicated for your little brain.
Great insult. ‘My little brain’. Your rebuttal makes no sense.
My post wasn’t about defending sexual predators. It was highlighting Democrats passed legislation that is not protecting children.
You’re so ignorant, it’s baffling.
GaysForTrump… * puke * your screen name by affiliation already precludes you from any conversation about predatory behavior. Just go suck your Orange moron’s dick and begone!
What legislation are you referring to? Be specific, we all have google to fact check you.
@Gaysfortrump, no, what is so baffling is that you cherry pick bits of “cut and paste” you find on the internet and actually believe you can present it as some smoking gun. Don’t you realize we are all connected to the internet? We can see what you are trying to, which isn’t that great of a job. I mean if you were REALLY concerned about child welfare, you would actually be doing something about it, REGARDLESS of the offenders political orientation. But no, you sit behind a glowing screen creating word salad and easily debunked misdirection. Get that check girl!
Why pretend it’s not going on?
If you really don’t believe that parents are rightly upset, I suggest you check out transsexual Blair White’s conversation with lesbian Arielle Scarella on Youtube titled “Meet the WORST ‘Groomer’ LGBT Teachers On Tik Tok.”
Gay guys especially need to see what’s being done in OUR name and why we’re getting hit with the backlash. Our Evangelical enemies just love that we all keep denying what’s happening while the evidence piles up.
I’m a parent. As a parent I end up talking to a lot of parents. I also talk to teaches.. You are just full of crap. And this “groomer” thing is nothing but qanon crap.
Who made this video you are talking about. Why do you use the outdated term transsexual. You appear to be trying to persuade gay men to shit on us Transgender women. I have no idea what is in the video, if it was made by right wingers you can be sure it’s edited. Of course, I’ve seen plenty of pro LGB people throwing us under the bus. I never asked to be included with LGB’s. It’s something we’re forced to accept. Since I’m currently half-n-half, I don’t have a sexual orientation label to hang on me. I would tell you to get f*#&ed, but they’ll cancel my response. We all know that the greatest threat to children is cis-het men.
“Don’t believe anything on the internet.” 1990
“Look what I learned on YouTube.” 2022
Oh, you switched over to this screename now? Why not BennyTheHill or BarryM? Did you think I’d forgotten about this one?
The video is on Blair White’s podcast. I referred to as a transsexual because she identifies as a transsexual, and no honest person watching her videos would doubt her sincerity.
The term is not “outdated” and is often used in neurological research.
If you get your “information” from youtube or tiktok, that’s not actually information.
I have followed neuroscience and psychological studies for everything LGBT for the past twenty years. I have often put links in my posts here, but hyperlinks always result in “Awaiting moderation.”
I speak out to try to shake some sense in you guys who have so drunk the Kool Aid, you don’t know or care to know that it’s gay and lesbian kids who are most vulnerable to Big Pharma using the schools to med-trans a many kids as possible. Planned Parenthood will put a kid on blockers after a one hour interview. No therapists to see of the boy or girl is autistic, being bullied or trying to please homophobic parents who’d like to see their gay kid “cured.”
The two women in that video are more honest than you and your tired propaganda.
Fname Optional Lname
Planned Parenthood doe NOT put a child on puberty blockers after a one hour conversation. You can’t even get blood work results in one day. People actually believe this?
I’ve found a good rule to live by. TikTok is Bullsh*t. Go and watch the dance videos, enjoy the comedy, but just remember as an information source, treat EVERTHING there as Bullsh*t. Your life will be so much more easy and breezy.
These Gen Xers seem to believe everything on the internet.
@inbama, obviously hyperlinks do that. Could you imagine the comments section with every “Come watch me have sex” spambot posting its URL ? Funny thing is, that there has been a way to get around that for over 20 years. apnews(dot)com/article/russia-ukraine-putin-business-europe-world-news-ef86584aa1c54577a7844133393a6e46
Pretty simple really. Massage the address a bit. And you can cite any source you want.
“I’ve found a good rule to live by. TikTok is Bullsh*t.”
So do you believe all the teens posting there about top surgery and asking for money with links to the gofundme website aren’t real?
Do you believe the teachers explaining their lesson plans and goals – some with dozens of posts – are all invented? That the teachers in Oakland, California seeking donations for their “transcloset” (so students can cross-dress without their parents knowing) aren’t real?
On what basis do you have to doubt that this is “bullsh*t?” What is YOUR source?
@inbama, sorry, not going to feed you the meal you wish.. so chew on this. Every single TikTok video is a vanity project, as really all social media is. Look at me, look how funny I am, look at what I have to say… Treat it all with the utmost skepticism, like it is Bullsh*t. First person narratives, especially when directed through social media, are unreliable as valid sources of information and are mere opinions of the poster. Anyone can post anything they wish, even it it is all made up.
People post for likes and notoriety. And, unlike true News organizations, people posting on TikTok do not have a professional ethical code of conduct. Everything they post is filtered through their own perceptions and prejudices.
It is just basic communications theory that you learn in Introduction to Mass Communications. That is not to say opinion is a bad thing. The experiences some post on there as a means to help other people feel they are not alone in their pain are emotionally valid.
One doesn’t think of Shakespeare as a prophet, however I would say in Macbeth’s Soliloquy it did drop a nugget of wisdom that is appropriate here, “It is a tale, told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.”
It’s not about protecting children. It’s about pushing queer people back into the shadows.
That is the goal.
There is no question that, as with abortion and CRT, Republicans are exploiting an issue to energize their base.
Unfortunately, teaching children that girls have penises instead of even basic biology and transing kids behind their parents’ backs is handing Republicans issues to exploit on a gold platter. We need to address these things honestly ourselves, or the outrage will lead to a loss of both houses, Marriage Equality and everything our activists have worked for since George Cecil Ives started the gay rights movement in 1892.
Even when there are three concrete examples of Republican pedophiles, there’s some idiot who shows up to blame Democrats. How do people never learn critical thinking skills? I remember lots of lessons in middle school and high school where they pushed kids to think about HOW we collect, evaluate, and filter information. If you’ve reached adulthood, and you still don’t have the ability to think… yikes.
Republican gays blow my mind. They must have uptight, looking-over-their-shoulder type of intimacy, knowing that a “friend” or a fellow-churchmember may burst in on them and shriek to high-heaven about their sin. Supporting GOP policies against the LGBTQ community is just wrong. Please tell us how a young gay man chooses to believe the oppression & suppression are good for him, & how he lives a healthy, normal life.
GaysWithStockholmSyndrome sure seems intent on protecting the ACTUAL pedophile in this story.
It’s easier to call the left pedophiles than it is to provide universal health care but the GOF has no plans other than bullying.
THE GOP has NOTHING , NOTHING in the way of a platform or a plan just to lie about us over and over . LIE AFTER LIE and if everyone is grooming as they say that would include them
gays for trump Or marcy or whoever you are this time you ares the one who need to calm down and stop cahnging your silly lying arguments. We are not fooled by any of you. LOL you sure waste alot of time on here but when you area white straight INCEL you got nothing better to do as no one wants your deformed tiny little dick
