Conservative commentator Matt Walsh sent shockwaves across the internet yesterday after obtaining internal documents from Fox News exposing its “Pride Month” education and policy.
Walsh took to Twitter yesterday to reveal that the New York-based media empire is encouraging its employees to learn about “glory holes” and is “supporting a group that gives sterilizing hormones to homeless youth.”
Fox Corporation, the parent company to Fox News, is reportedly displaying the Pride-themed materials to all Fox employees upon logging in to their employee portal.
Screenshots uploaded by Walsh onto Twitter yesterday include a welcome message asking employees to join the multinational company “during this Pride month by downloading Pride Slack avatars and Zoom backgrounds to use and share.” The screenshots also offer information regarding the origins and symbolism of the Pride Flag, along with charitable organizations Fox recommends its employees support.
As Walsh highlights, under the heading ‘Support One Another,’ Fox encourages employees to donate to several LGBT organizations, including The Trevor Project, a national organization which ‘hosts a sexually explicit chat room that connects children as young as 13 years old with ‘LGBT’ adults.'”
Additionally, the mass media company also recommends supporting the Ali Forney Center, which, despite claiming to rescue “homeless LGBT youth,” offers people who are homeless cross-sex hormones that, as Walsh says, are known for causing sterilization.
Finally, Walsh details that Fox labeled the Los Angeles LGBT Center “unstoppable,” despite the fact the Center once posted a video of a mother “surprising” her biological son with feminizing hormones.
The video was later removed from YouTube for violating its terms of service.
The 25-tweet thread continues by drawing attention to books authored by transgender activists recommended by Fox to “expand” its employees’ perspectives.
The most notable is a memoir called Fairest by Merideth Talusan, which tells the story of a “precocious boy with albinism, a ‘sun child’ from a rural Philippine village, who would grow up to become a woman in America.” As Walsh notes, the book also includes a scene that explicitly describes a “glory hole” to its readers.
Disturbingly, the executives at Fox offer some recommendations for its employees’ children, including a Pride-themed book featuring a character who “comes out as a unicorn.”
The portal also suggests several podcasts and Ted Talks to its employees, one of which describes getting a double mastectomy as both “medically necessary” and a “sign of strength.”
Unsurprisingly, the internal guidance also encourages employees to attend Pride events, specifically one hosted by the company at its New York headquarters on June 23 in partnership with Ben & Jerry’s ice cream.
At the end of his thread, Walsh reveals that a highly influential individual at Fox has his pronouns in his bio, drawing attention to his frequent hostility toward Fox’s audience, including one of his recent Instagram posts where he “attacked conservatives’ concerns over drag queens targeting children.”
His rant concludes by posing a question about whether the leadership at Fox News even cares about how its latest efforts are alienating its audience or if it truly supports the LGBT propaganda it seems to be forcing on its employees.
“Or maybe Fox leadership isn’t concerned with how the audience feels because they’re not really beholden to those viewers at all. Like YouTube, some of Fox’s largest shareholders are enormous institutional investors.”
Questions about Fox News‘ political direction have become heated following popular commentator Tucker Carlson’s termination from his coveted evening slot on April 24. The historically conservative network sparked similar backlash after its policy was leaked on “woke ideology.”
The Daily Signal was given exclusive access to the company’s internal policy, which stated that Fox News employees could “use bathrooms that align with their gender identity, rather than their biological sex,” and “must also be addressed by their preferred name and pronouns in the workplace.”
Producers admitted to The Daily Signal that Carlson had “to fight to be able to refer to” transgender TikTok influencer Dylan Mulvaney “with male pronouns in the show’s chyrons.” After Carlson’s termination, remaining Fox personalities were told “not to bash Mulvaney” on its new 8 p.m. show Fox News Tonight.
In 2022, Fox also raised eyebrows after it seemingly celebrated the transition of a child for a Pride Month Segment, which it billed as being an “inspiration to others.”
After Walsh’s thread went viral, many took to Twitter to express their upset at Fox News, some of whom, like Turning Point USA contributor Benny Johnson, labeled the network a “Trojan horse.”
According to Walsh, several Fox employees have reached out to him off the record, thanking him for going public about their employers Pride celebrations.
