The Tennessee Conservative [By Jason Vaughn] –

An LBGTQ+ Town Hall Meeting is coming up on November 10th at Maryville College through an event partnership with Appalachian OUTreach, Maryville College Pride Club and the FBI.

The event is titled “Defining Hate Crimes” and is free and open to the public.

The event notice states that Allies, parents, friends, and non-LGBTQ+ people are welcome to attend and that the content will be presented by the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI).

“Learn how hate crimes are legally defined, learn how to report hate crimes, and get answers,” the flyer for the event states.

One conservative Blount County resident states, “This is creepy. Is dissent being criminalized?  Joe Biden’s DOJ and the FBI do not inspire confidence.”


The former Blount County Republican Women’s Club President, Heather Fair, tells us that she is working to get a group of Conservative Christians to attend the meeting.

Appalachian OUTreach states, “The purpose of this LGBTQ+ Town Hall meeting is to educate vulnerable and marginalized populations about their rights and the laws that protect them.”

    So now the FBI is going to hammer us with legalize telling how we have to accept all this excrement or be harassed by them. Tranny show for preteens is more of the ridiculous far left crap that I for one will not swallow. I think it’s time the FBI is taken apart along with the DOJ because I see no hope for any means of reconciliation with their misapplication of laws and standard. It’s not the parents who are terrorists, it the FBI and the DOJ

      what defines Tennessee as “a Christian State”?

        I do not agree with the label of “Christian State” for any of our fifty but I do say that the USA, overall, has as her basis a Christian society. I say this because our founding documents, the Constitution and Bill of Rights, were born out of Judeo-Christian beliefs which has brought about the culture and traditions our citizens hold dear. And because our society is a “Christian” one, each person can accept or reject Christ freely without fear of retaliation by the government. This one reason why so many flock to the USA.

    The label “hate crime” uses an inequity in terms of severity of illegal acts. First, the term is a contradiction. Crime committed automatically lends itself to the conclusion that the perpetrator doesn’t have any feelings of affection toward the victim. Second, if two identical crimes of equal severity are leveled upon two different victims, each of whom would be listed in different demographic categories, would the term “hate crime” applied to one and not the other cause an inequity in the severity of the crime? One victim would be given higher status of importance because of the demographic they fill while the other would not receive the same advantage. It would seem that simply by the labeling of any crime with an unnecessary adjective would bring about division, and therefore judicial unfairness, among victims especially those not filling a certain demographic. It also dilutes the word “crime” from the severity it should bring to a level of category dependent upon the victim and, again, the category they fill. It is all a very sad situation. We seems to make problems where there are none or where a solution can be fairly easily arrived at instead of manufacturing false or inept solutions. Very sad.
