Owatonna Mayor Tom Kuntz has come under fire from the LGBTQ cultists for comments made about his town’s pride event, dubbed “Rainbowatonna,” which took place last weekend. Now, he stands in the face of calls to resign.
Kuntz, a Republican, showed up at Associated Church’s weekend kickoff event on July 8th. According to many outlets, he asked church organizers whether or not there would be “stripper poles in the sanctuary.”
This should be taken as a serious question. According to Fox9, the public events included an “adults-only” drag show. Though these events tend to be sexual in nature, LGBTQ organizers will only exclude children if they expect over-the-top obscene performances.
In an open letter, the organizers conclude that “The only satisfactory response from Mayor Kuntz is his immediate resignation. There is no place for homophobic bigotry in city government.”
In reality, the Mayor has every right to criticize the actions of Associated Church and the Rainbowatonna organizers, just as they have the right to criticize his strong leadership. Kuntz did not use his office to shut down the city events, nor should he have.
It’s the radical left that uses their positions of power to go after private individuals. Just look at how Minnesota’s Attorney General Keith Ellison went after small business owners for defying Governor Walz’ extreme lockdown orders. In fact, the left even locked up patriot Lisa Hanson for trying to make ends meet.
The reality here is that the left demands full compliance with their authoritarian dictates. If you do not comply, they will ruin your life – and then some. Good on Mayor Kuntz for standing his ground.
