SF Gay Men’s Chorus Enrages Right Wing With Brillaint ‘We’ll Convert Your Children’ Video
Many of the leading wingnut Trumper “news” websites currently have their MAGA hats in a bunch over an extremely funny satirical video from the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus that was posted July 1. The COVID-19 misinformation shitposting hotbed Post Millennial declared that “San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus pushes woke agenda” and “the video has now been made unavailable on YouTube.” On her own blog, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush’s “Faith and Community-based Initiatives” wrote on that “The choir posted on its YouTube channel a song on that theme, but quickly took it down.”
The San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus’ “A Message From the Gay Community” is hilarrrrious, but after a slog of threats, has been made private on Youtube. But you can see this delightful satirical video in its entirety from a different streaming service below..
Here’s a sampling of the lyrics:
WE’LL CONVERT YOUR CHILDREN,
HAPPENS BIT BY BIT,
QUIETLY AND SUBTLELY
AND YOU WILL BARELY NOTICE IT,
YOU CAN KEEP THEM FROM DISCO,
WARN ABOUT SAN FRANCISCO.
MAKE ‘EM WEAR PLEATED PANTS,
WE DON’T CARE…
WE’LL CONVERT YOUR CHILDREN…
WE’LL MAKE THEM TOLERANT AND FAIR.
They have of course faced a ton of criticism over the video and have published the following response:
“The negative, even threatening responses, prove that this music and our mission are critically necessary in today’s world. Many children are not being taught the truth. Our message to you from the gay community: we will continue do our best to counter the message of hate by teaching young people to be tolerant and fair.
It is obvious the tongue-in-cheek humor is lost on many – especially the ones spewing death threats. Please take a moment and read the entire text. “We’ll make an ally of you yet.” We are proud of who we are. We are proud of what we sing.”
