If it wasn’t for the fact that Matthew Heimbach & Co. has called for LGBT persons to be either institutionalized or sent to camps, we wouldn’t take issue with a member of his group whose personal choices should have seemingly sent that crew through the roof!
An article on Overthrowdotcom.com, a sister website of One People’s Project, takes issue with Matthew Heimbach’s Traditionalist Worker Party (TWP) and their inclusion of a member who despite the group’s fervent attacks on the LGBT community, particularly the transgendered, has posted photos of themselves wearing dresses and makeup.
According to the article, Derrick Davis, a philosophy student at Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU), is a member of TWP, which organized the rally in Sacramento in June that became an all-out brawl with serious injuries on both sides. While Davis has not come out publicly as transgendered, gay or bisexual, photos of Davis, one showing them wearing a dress with a purple wig and makeup, may still run counter to the TWP message of traditional values, particularly anti-LGBT stances, where they have referred to “a man who ‘loves’ another man” as “mentally ill”, and have been so bad they have even caused Heimbach to be dis-invited from the National Policy Institute conference in Washington, DC last Halloween. They have been particularly harsh on the transgendered community as of late, calling them in one article “self-mutilating sodomites”. “(T)he question on our minds is, ‘has Matthew Heimbach changed his mind about gender queer rights, or is this simply hypocrisy?’” the article notes.
