Drag Queen Originally Booked for Kids' Entertainment Is Satanist Who Makes Incest-Themed Porn – Report

Western Journal

Published

Hosting events where cross-dressing adults initiate young children into a world of sexual confusion and perversion is always a terrible idea.

Though woke society tries to convince parents that transvestites are appropriate role models for their children, the growing number of bonafide sex criminals and perverts found to be hosting these events prove that it’s all wrong.

That’s what happened in Bloomington, Minnesota, where parents reportedly learned that one drag performer originally slated for the city’s Pride festival is a male stripper who allegedly posts incest-themed videos to pornographic websites and other adult content to his OnlyFans — and is a Satanist to boot.

According to Alpha News, drag performer Martina Marraccino, the alter ego of Martino Gabriel-Mayotte, was originally part of the lineup of entertainment for the Aug. 14 event that included drag performers for a “story hour and show,” according to a later version of the event flyer.

The City of Bloomington YouTube page billed the event as a celebration of inclusion and acceptance of the same-sex attracted in the community, with organizer Kendra Rysan specifically mentioning it was an all-ages event in a promotional video posted Wednesday.

“There’s going to be food trucks and music and drag performers and just a bunch of activities for the whole family,” Rysan promised.

Some of the partners responsible for this event include entities that cater to children, including the Mall of America, the city’s Parks and Recreation Department and the Hennepin County Library.

From the start, it should have been obvious that a festival that features several drag performers and comedians in an evening-long event is no place for children, but organizers were somehow painfully oblivious.

It’s unlikely any of the performer’s obscene specialties were unknown to organizers when he was booked given that his Facebook page “The Lady Martina” features several photos and videos of him stripping and in various stages of undress (to link it would be to share pornography, but readers may search for the social media page at their own risk).

Concerned parents learned of this and brought it to the attention of city officials, including more evidence that Marraccino was possibly performing under the name “Adam Divine,” with a Twitter profile consisting of “nearly 100% gay pornography,” according to Becky Strohmeier, who runs the Bloomington Patriots group that finally succeeded in having Marraccino removed from the event.

“Looking at this guy’s Twitter page and OnlyFans posts, then looking at his resume makes my heart drop — he is immersed in children,” Strohmeier told Alpha News.

“Why would a porn actor with a kink for young boys dress up like a woman to entertain children? And why are so many elected officials defending him?”

Strohmeier also alleged that Marraccino “posts videos of himself having sex with ‘younger brother’ on the internet” in his explicit content.

“He has incest fantasies. That’s illegal in the state of Minnesota,” she said.

“It’s absolutely disgraceful that nobody did their due diligence on this,” Strohmeier said of the city and event planners.



Strohmeier reached out to Hennepin County Commissioner Marion Greene only to find she personally vouched for Marraccino, saying the performer “in no way promotes Satanism and/or sex with minors.”

Marraccino may not directly promote those things, but a Facebook post of his last month proclaimed “Hail Satan” with news that the Bladensburg Cross in Maryland was consecrated by a Satanic temple as their own symbol.

After Bloomington Patriots publicized these sordid facts about the Marraccino on social media, many became outraged that he would be allowed to perform at this event.

Meanwhile, the performer himself reportedly confronted his detractors online, though he never denied any of the allegations against him.

“This is childish and I’m not bothered,” Marraccino wrote in a comment on the activist group’s Facebook post.

“Your children crave love and acceptance, you seem to only have room for hate. That’s sad for them, and for you. Jesus would be ashamed of you.”

After the hubbub on social media about Marraccino, the performer was finally pulled from the event with a carefully worded statement from Bloomington City Manager Jamie Verbrugge.

“The City became aware of allegations this past Monday that one of the performers booked for the Pride event has a social media presence that includes explicit material,” Verbrugge wrote on the event’s website.

“The City took time to independently verify that the allegation was factual. The City decided to not have that individual among the performers at the Pride event on August 14,” the official announced.

“City staff is not booking the entertainers for the event, but is working with an event planner/producer who was unaware of the social media content related to the performer.”

Though it was appropriate to remove Marraccino from the program, the existence of this kind of show aimed at children — even if only casually stated — is problematic.

In the past, men who dressed as women were part of raunchy and obscene “adult entertainment” aimed at the 21-and-over crowd.

It was never morally acceptable, but at least it was kept away from innocent children until very recently.

But now they’re specifically coming after our children with this depravity while the people who should know better celebrate it.

Marraccino’s perversion and Satanism are certainly problematic, but truth be told, drag queens have no place in front of our children in the first place.

Suspected Carjacker Tries to Outrun Police K9, ‘Titan’ Teaches Him Why That’s a Bad Idea

Western Journal

Published

If your car is running low on gas, don’t carjack another car.

If you do try to carjack another car, don’t take it from a guy outside a gym — a place where you’re much more likely to run into someone who knows mixed martial arts.

If you still manage to steal the car, make sure it’s an automatic or that you know how to drive a stick shift.

Finally, if you don’t know how to drive stick, get back in your car. If you have to abandon it during the ensuing police chase, don’t assume you can outrun a K9 dog named Titan.

This should all be taught in Criminal Behavior 101, but it appears a few suspected carjackers disregarded some — if not all — of those basic lessons.

According to WUSA-TV, the trouble began around 5 p.m. Tuesday outside an Anytime Fitness in Stafford, Virginia. Multiple callers told police that three men attacked another man with a stick so large the potential victim said he thought it was a baseball bat.

Sheriff’s deputies said the motive was — get this one — the men were running out of gas in their car and, instead of filling it up, they just tried to gank another one.

The problem was the potential victim had training in mixed martial arts. He fought back — but eventually dropped his keys.

However, when the suspected carjackers picked them up and got in the MMA aficionado’s car, they discovered something unfortunate for them: It was a manual transmission, which they didn’t know how to drive.

By this time, others inside the gym noticed what was going on and came outside to stop the carjacking. Given that learning how to use a clutch and a gearshift isn’t the easiest thing to do when you’re in the midst of a crime, deputies say the attempted carjackers got back into their car and drove off.

“Deputies learned the suspects were driving a white Acura sedan with Mississippi plates and they were quickly spotted by a deputy who attempted to pull the car over on Garrisonville Road near I-95. Instead of stopping, the suspects took off and headed northbound on I-95,” WUSA reported.

“The pursuit reached a speed of 98 mph, deputies said. Near mile marker 145, the suspects entered the HOV lanes by crashing through the barrier arm and began driving northbound while traffic was headed southbound.”

Eventually, the men stopped and ran into a wooded median; the Virginia State Police and other law enforcement officials found them using a K-9 named Titan and were able to set up a perimeter.

The men were then told they could either give up or the dog would be unleashed. Only two suspects were wise enough to give up voluntarily.

“The third suspect incorrectly judged his own speed or K-9 Titan’s speed and attempted to run away. This attempt was futile as K-9 Titan was released and apprehended the suspect within 50 yards,” Stafford County deputies said.

I suppose if you decide carjacking is a good solution when your car’s low-fuel warning light is on and you go the wrong way in the HOV lane, you might be the kind of person who believes you can outrun a K-9 unit.

“The suspects were identified as 19-year-old Jabez Clark, 18-year-old Korey Richardson, and 20-year-old Jacob Land,” WUSA reported.

Was this alleged plan thought through at all?

“Clark is charged with carjacking, robbery, conspiracy, malicious wounding, assault, vandalism and possession of burglary tools. Richardson is charged with carjacking, robbery, conspiracy, eluding, reckless driving and hit and run. Land is charged with carjacking robbery, conspiracy and vandalism.”

All three were held without bond. However, if you want to know which suspect was allegedly misguided enough to believe they could outrun a police dog, WUSA noted, “Land briefly went to the hospital for treatment of a dog bite.”

Say what you will about Clark and Richardson: Even if they did what they stand accused of, they had enough sense to know K-9s named Titan are bad news.

Covering for Kaepernick: Couric Edited Anti-Kneeling Comments Due to RBG’s Racial Justice ‘Blind Spot’

Western Journal

Published

Employment apparently isn’t a very appealing prospect to former “CBS Evening News” anchor Katie Couric.

After bouncing around the nether regions of the media landscape since she left CBS in 2011 — her last major gig was with Yahoo’s streaming division, which is the mainstream media’s version of the direct-to-video movie — Couric has decided to write a tell-all called “Going There.” It manages to earn the title.

In the book, Couric admits to sabotaging the careers of other female journalists and anchors because she felt threatened.

She said Martha Stewart needed “some healthy humbling (prison will do that … ) to develop a sense of humor.”

She jokingly implied Diane Sawyer, former host of ABC’s “Good Morning America,” would trade sexual favors for interviews. (But don’t worry, Couric didn’t really mean it: “I’m pretty sure I speak for Diane when I say neither of us ever resorted to actual fellatio to land an interview,” she wrote, “but we both engaged in the metaphoric kind — flattering gatekeepers, family members, and whoever else stood in the way of a big get.” Who said ethics in journalism was dead?)

In short, “Going There” has taken Couric from unemployed to very unemployable, and the book hasn’t even come out yet.

As if to put a finer point on the matter, the latest leaked anecdote from the forthcoming tome regarding an interview with Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg manages the impressive feat of infuriating both the right and the left simultaneously.

According to a Monday piece from the Daily Mail, Couric said she selectively edited her 2016 sit-down interview with Ginsburg to omit the liberal icon’s scathing remarks directed at athletes who knelt during the national anthem, ostensibly in the name of “protecting” her.

The interview was done for Yahoo News in October 2016. At that point, two careers were in the process of terminal decline.

One was Couric’s, as she had gone from CBS News to ABC News to the news division of the MySpace of search engines.

The other was that of then-San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who’d placed himself in the midst of a media maelstrom by choosing to kneel during “The Star-Spangled Banner” in protest of American-centric injustice; it didn’t help that the controversy this created occurred concurrently with a precipitous decline in the quality of Kaepernick’s play.

However, other athletes joined Kaepernick and anthem-kneeling became A Thing™ in the fall of 2016, albeit as a phenomenon far more controversial than it is five years later. It was against this backdrop that Couric asked RBG what she thought of the athletes kneeling for the anthem.

The interview as published made it clear that Ginsburg wasn’t a fan. “I think it’s really dumb of them,” she said.

“Would I arrest them for doing it? No,” the justice continued. “I think it’s dumb and disrespectful. I would have the same answer if you asked me about flag burning. I think it’s a terrible thing to do, but I wouldn’t lock a person up for doing it. I would point out how ridiculous it seems to me to do such an act.”

Couric went further, asking: “But when it comes to these football players, you may find their actions offensive, but what you’re saying is, it’s within their rights to exercise those actions?”

“Yes,” she said. “If they want to be stupid, there’s no law that should be preventive. If they want to be arrogant, there’s no law that prevents them from that. What I would do is strongly take issue with the point of view that they are expressing when they do that.”

However, according to the Daily Mail, Couric revealed in “Going There” that Ginsburg — the most far-left justice to have ever sat on the high court bench by almost any metric — went even further, saying athletes like Kaepernick were showing “contempt for a government that has made it possible for their parents and grandparents to live a decent life.”

“Which they probably could not have lived in the places they came from … as they became older they realize that this was youthful folly. And that’s why education is important,” Ginsburg said.

Do you agree with Ginsburg's comments on anthem protests?

Couric said that while she tried to keep her “personal politics” out of her journalism (do try to stifle your laughter as you read that), she was a “big RBG fan” and felt the remarks were “unworthy of a crusader for equality” like Ginsburg.

She decided to leave the remarks out, obviously. Couric’s reasoning? Ginsburg was “elderly and probably didn’t fully understand the question” and racial justice was a “blind spot” for her. The justice was 83 at the time and died four years later.

Much like every other anecdote we’ve heard Couric share in her upcoming memoir, this makes the former “CBS Nightly News” anchor look nowhere near as good as one imagines she thinks it does.

First, yes — in 2021, the suggestion that athletes kneeling for the national anthem to protest vague notions of injustice is disrespectful to the country, to those who have sacrificed for it and to the fans whose expenditures pay their salaries is widely considered heretical and reactionary. In 2016, however, that was not the case.

In fact, as late as 2018, 54 percent of respondents to a Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll said kneeling for “The Star-Spangled Banner” was “not appropriate.”

Couric’s memory, one might say, is as selective as her editing; it’s not too much of a leap to assume she wasn’t “protecting” Ginsburg so much as she was protecting her own opinion. If one of the country’s leftist heroines was willing to go as far as to say anthem protests show “contempt for a government that has made it possible for their parents and grandparents to live a decent life,” maybe it wasn’t Ginsburg who had the “blind spot.”

It’s also worth noting that nowhere in the Yahoo interview (or other contemporaneous sit-downs) did the justice come across as unduly “elderly” — and her response made clear the excuse Ginsburg “probably didn’t fully understand the question” is silly. For that matter, if RBG really were in such a state of decline that she couldn’t properly comprehend the question and Couric was “protecting” her, why was the interview published at all?

The likely answer is that Couric believes none of her own excuses. In this case, her “personal politics” couldn’t allow her to let conservatives have the pleasure of Ginsburg pointing out the obvious when it comes to anthem protesters. She published a narrative, not the news.

It’s worth noting this revelation will have the added bonus of further enraging progressives still unhappy with Ginsburg for not retiring in 2014 when the Democrats had the White House and the Senate.

Her death in September 2020 led to Amy Coney Barrett’s ascension to the high court. After the Supreme Court refused to block Texas’ abortion law, that led to tweets like this one from writer Nandini Balial:

Hey, speaking of “dumb and disrespectful.”

Whatever the case, Couric’s memoir is shaping up to be one of the great media miscalculations of recent years, a self-sabotaging tell-all that spills plenty of dirt — and almost all of it about Katie Couric.

She killed the careers of other female journalists because she felt threatened by them. She admits to engaging in “metaphoric” sex acts to get scoops. And now we know she selectively edited an interview when RBG made too much sense.

At this rate, by the time “Going There” is released on Oct. 26, Katie Couric might not even be able to get a gig on TikTok.
