GOP Puts Hold On Smithsonian Nominees Over Museum Hosting Drag Shows

via FOX 13 News Utah

Sen. Mike Lee and other Senate Republicans are holding up several Smithsonian nominees due to concerns about the museum hosting “indigenous drag performers” and plans to include materials featuring transgender men in the Smithsonian’s American Women’s History Museum.

They have demanded answers about these issues and the treatment of pro-life Catholics.

Lee expressed concerns about the nominees’ views on these topics and their ability to protect the institution from what he called “disgraceful propaganda.”

“The American people deserve trustworthy caretakers for their national treasures and precious history, not drag shows, bigotry, and bias, wrote Sen. Lee.

“If you want to sit on the Smithsonian’s Board of Regents, you should be able to provide a good case for how you will protect the institution from such disgraceful propaganda,” insisted the Utah senator.

Lee has raised concerns about the Smithsonian hosted an event where “indigenous drag performers” were invited to participate in a night of “extravaganza of dance, music, and humor.”

Lee highlighted that the event did not an age restriction and that it was done without the blessing of Congress.

Sen. Lee’s letter also addressed an alleged incident that occurred At the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum.

“In January 2023, the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum allegedly kicked out a dozen Catholic high school students who were wearing hats inscribed with a pro-life message reading, ‘Rosary PRO-LIFE,’” wrote Lee.

“The students were allegedly told to either remove their hats or leave the museum. The museum has since apologized for the incident.”

Lee also criticized The Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History for distributing a newsletter claiming that “If you are white in America, you have benefited from the color of your skin.”
