Sarah Huckabee Sanders Set to Ban Drag Shows in Arkansas

(Headline USA) Arkansas Gov. Sarah Huckabee Sanders announced this week that she will ban drag shows from public property in the state, arguing that “adult-oriented performances” are inappropriate and part of the “radical Left’s woke dystopia.”

A bill banning drag shows passed a state House panel on Wednesday and is set to continue through the legislature with the support of Sanders. 

“I think we have to do everything — I’ve been very clear and talked about this pretty extensively — to protect children. I think that’s what this bill does,” Sanders said last month.

Sanders’s spokeswoman Alexa Henning said in a statement that the bill is not aimed at “banning anything.” It’s about “protecting kids” from being exposed to “sexually explicit drag shows,” she said.

“Only in the radical left’s woke dystopia is it not appropriate to protect kids,” she added.

The bill defines a drag show as someone dancing, singing and lip-syncing to an audience of two or more while wearing “clothing, makeup, or other accessories that are traditionally worn by members of and are meant to exaggerate the gender identity of the performer’s opposite sex.”

Within her first few months in office, Sanders has already come out swinging against leftists in her state. She issued executive orders prohibiting critical race theory in public schools and banning the use of the term “Latinx” in state documents.

“The government has a responsibility to respect its citizens and use ethnically appropriate language, particularly when referring to ethnic minorities,” the executive order banning “Latinx” states.

“One can no more easily remove gender from Spanish and other romance languages than one can remove vowels and verbs from English,” the executive order continues.  “It is the policy of the Governor’s administration to prohibit the use of culturally insensitive words for official state government business.”
