For those of you too busy with life to have noticed, last week marked a significant milestone in Idaho’s decline to Californiadom. Boise’s Pride Festival gained national attention by joining the depravity and moral bankruptcy of liberal culture in the west to encourage the sexual exploitation of children. The festival coordinators hosted a child drag queen show, encouraged children to tip men dressed as sexualized women during a strip tease, and hosted a drag queen kid’s story hour.
Even after a grassroots campaign erupted over the perversion and several of the event sponsors pulled their endorsements, organizers of the Boise Pride Festival held a child drag show. This was after they publicly announced that they were cancelling the event. The depth of the moral depravity that leads to grooming children is hard to fathom. Unfortunately, Boise (and by extension Idaho) has reached those depths.
Which Companies Really Care about Magic Valley Values?
All this got me to thinking: who were the sponsors of this Boise Pride Event that did not pull their endorsements? Since this controversy happened the same week as the excellent Twin Falls September 11 memorial, I decided to compare the sponsors of both events to see if anything interesting could be found in the comparison.

Of the twenty-four sponsors of the September 11 memorial, only a small handful are large corporations. All the others are either locally-owned & operated, or locally managed businesses. Interestingly, supporters of Boise Pride (and most alternative lifestyle supporting groups) claim that your average Idahoan supports them.
How much support do you think these alternative lifestyle groups actually have here in the Magic Valley? Idaho Power pulled their support of the child drag show, but took extra pains to explicitly state that they fully support the LGBT agenda. If you are a parent in the Magic Valley, you need to start making some noise. They are literally coming for your children, and if we sit by and silently disapprove, we will lose them. The trend of people under thirty abandoning the church and leaving conservative values is on the rise.
What can we do?
What will you do to push back and protect your children? Some tried and true approaches are boycotts of these business sponsors, sending complaints to their corporate offices, and finding alternative retailers that do not support such depraved behavior. As always, we should, of course spread the word: too often things like Boise Pride’s exploitation of children go unreported on and unnoticed by the majority. Act now, or we lose everything.
