The Michigan Freedom Fund released an ad featuring footage of Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel calling for “a drag queen in every school.”
The ad centers around comments from Democratic Attorney General Dana Nessel, who said on camera, “I say this: a drag queen for every school! That’s what would be fun for kids.”
“Our children’s math and reading levels are falling to historic lows,” the ad continues.
Nessel continues, saying, “You know what’s not a problem for kids looking for a good education? Draw queens. Good? Let me say this, drag queens, not only do drag queens not harm our children, drag queens make everything better.”
“Our children deserve better. They need real solutions,” concludes the ad from the Michigan Freedom Fund.
It was revealed that Nessel expressed support for “a drag queen in every school” earlier this summer, although the video has not yet been released. One article refers to the comments, which were made at a conference organized by the Michigan Department of Civil Rights, as a joke.
According to The Detroit News, Nessel dismissed parents’ concerns that their children could be exposed to queens in schools, which she called “false issues.” The Democratic Attorney General also complained about “wedge cases that do not help us, that do not heal us, but divide us.”
Dana Nessel is up for re-election on Nov. 8 and is facing Republican candidate for Michigan Attorney General Matthew DePerno, who has been endorsed by former President Donald Trump.
