(LifeSiteNews) – Conservatives are rightly outraged by Fox News Channel’s recent decision to produce a “Pride Month” segment glorifying the case of a California family that chose to “transition” their daughter into living as a boy starting at age five.
The case, which asks us to believe Ryland Whittington “managed to tell his parents that he is a boy” before the poor child “could even speak,” is almost too preposterous to believe could have made it to air at an ostensibly “conservative” news network without raising red flags in the eyes of anyone with a journalistic bone in their body. That such leftist propaganda would come from a network that built its success expressly on the promise of being an alternative to such propaganda adds insult to injury.
So it’s only natural that an array of conservative public figures are speaking out against the segment. Unfortunately, most are not focusing their commentary where it has the most potential to make a difference.
Forget about trying to shame Fox’s corporate leadership into changing; after all, these are the people who gushed over Chris Wallace’s “professionalism, skill and fortitude” after Wallace made a mockery of Fox’s “fair and balanced” tagline in 2020’s first Trump-Biden debate. Nor are The First or Newsmax anywhere near posing a serious challenge to Fox.
What would make Fox think twice? The possibility of losing their biggest personalities, Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity. Fox pays both of them tens of millions of dollars a year because they draw massive audiences. Fox needs them vastly more than either of them needs Fox – for decades Hannity has hosted one of the most successful radio shows in America, and Carlson could replicate that success almost overnight, especially with the still-unfilled void left by Rush Limbaugh’s passing.
If either host decided to start tossing their weight around, Fox would have a serious problem on its hands. Would it really want to sacrifice its biggest names just to appeal to people who are already more at home with CNN or MSNBC?
Dave Rubin (left) hosts one of the most popular conservative chat-shows on YouTube, but we now know his views are as extreme as many on the left.
Not only are Rubin and his homosexual partner using surrogate mothers to bear two babies, thus deliberately depriving the children of their true mothers' care once born, but he also admitted those babies would have been aborted if found to have severe disabilities.
SIGN the petition telling Dave Rubin that true conservatives protect life and uphold the right of children to be raised by their mothers.
Mr. Rubin recently said he also supports abortion up until 12 weeks, compounding the regrettable pro-eugenics stance he has taken towards unborn babies with severe disabilities.
There are few things more tragic in our world today than the disposable attitude of many people towards innocent human life, but that is exactly what Rubin thinks is acceptable.
This must be called out - it's simply abhorrent to treat the disabled, the unwanted, and the vulnerable with such callous disregard.
Tell Dave Rubin that his pro-eugenics views have no place in a humane society.
Can you imagine finding out your parents would have aborted you if you had a severe disability?
Well, that's unfortunately what will happen to the children Rubin raises if they someday read his latest book, "Don't Burn This Country".
There he shares that he and his family's decision would have been to "terminate the pregnancy" if a severe disability was found in one of the babies now being borne by their surrogate mothers.
Rubin must understand how cruel this entire situation is, not only for the mothers and their children who will be taken away, but also for disabled people to know they are essentially thought of as "lives unworthy of life."
Real conservatives must speak up now and tell Rubin that his pro-abortion views are abhorrent.
Mr. Rubin's public split with the left is to be welcomed, but "conservative" leaders like him will do much more harm than good if they continue using their platform to undermine the family and the right of children to be born.
If we let these cornerstones of society be attacked from within, what hope have we of building a culture we can be proud to hand on?
Make a stand today for unborn children and their mothers - tell Dave Rubin that he's wrong.
True conservatives cannot afford to take the easy shortcut of ignoring Rubin's cruel position, lest we continue to be shunted further left, becoming radical liberals in everything but name.
So, please SIGN and SHARE this petition today,

That’s where the rest of us come in: lobbying Fox’s most powerful, most conservative voices to take a stand for conservative principles and basic sanity over child abuse and leftist extremism. Email them personally. Reach out on social media. Sign and deliver petitions. Call them by name in videos and articles. Use every avenue available to push them to do the right thing, both publicly and privately.
By all means, continue letting Fox News as a whole how you feel. Change the channel and let them know why. Register pro forma disapproval with the reporters, producers, and managers who were directly responsible for the segment, and with the executives at the top of the accountability chain. But our best chance at results lies with directing the bulk of our feedback to the Fox giants who present themselves as champions of our values, and giving them a chance to prove it.
