'A fate worse than death': Matt Walsh launches vicious attack on parenting trans kids

Right-wing Daily Wire host Matt Walsh concluded his Tuesday show by declaring that he would "rather be dead" than have a child who is transgender. Walsh has an extensive history of making bigoted comments toward LGBTQ+ individuals, including proclamations such as "trans people don't exist" and that gender-affirming care is "mutilation."

Walsh was also the ringleader of an anti-trans rally in Nashville, Tennessee shortly before Halloween last year, and his extreme rhetoric prompted The New Republic to name him their "Transphobe of the Year" on December 27th, 2022.

"Now, finally, if you sense anger in the words that I use when discussing this topic, you're right. That is one crime I will confess to. I am angry," Walsh said. "When I look at what these people have done to our country, the devastation they have wrought on a generation of children and adults alike, the bleakness and ugliness of their worldview, the moral and intellectual chaos they leave in their wake, yes, I get very angry."

Walsh directed much of his ire toward trans entertainer and civil rights activist Dylan Mulvaney, who has amassed millions of social media followers in her fight for equality:

And when I consider that my own children must inherit this culture – that Dylan Mulvaney and his ilk will prey upon my children and try to turn my own sons and daughters into mutilated, mutant, self-loathing, hollow, twisted shells just like themselves – well, my anger then turns into more of a boiling rage. And I know that I will do whatever is necessary and I will speak whatever truths are necessary to protect my kids from this hellish godforsaken madness.

Now, I have personally heard from many parents – more than I can count – who tell me versions of the same horror story; a beautiful and innocent kid one day seemingly out of nowhere, gets sucked into the gender cult and is devoured by it. The child they held as a baby and raised and gave their lives to and loved and still love becomes, suddenly, unrecognizable. All of their innocence and light and beauty just drained out of them, replaced by this self-cannibalizing madness. For a parent to see this happen to a child, it is a fate worse than death. I would rather be dead than have that happen to my kids.

Walsh then misgendered Mulvaney and falsely accused her of leading a movement to corrupt kids:

See, the thing that I most despise about Dylan Mulvaney is that he is part of a movement which actively seeks to turn my children into Dylan Mulvaney. That's why I'm entitled to my anger and to whatever language I use to convey it. I will say whatever I want to say and I will be justified in saying it because these people are after my kids. And yours. And everyone else's. And you're worried that I'm being a little rude?

Well, you see, when it comes to my children, the children that I cherish more than my own life, if you think mean words go too far, then you would be very shocked to hear how far I would really go to protect them. Trust me, words are the least of it. So, yes, my words reflect anger because I am angry. But the problem is not that I'm angry. The problem is that you aren't nearly angry enough.
