J.K. Rowling for the Win: ‘REAL Fascists Have Spotted a Glorious Opportunity in Trans Activism’

Regardless of what one thinks about British author J.K. Rowling and her politics, the writer of the world-famous Harry Potter series has more than enough “screw you” money not to give a damn what the left thinks about her — much less to stop espousing her views. And that, you gotta love — or should.


Rowling has courageously taken a hard stand, given her profession, against transgenderism in recent years. Here’s a brief recap, via related RedState articles:

(Bud Light, Target, Kohl’s, and a host of other kowtowing corporations were unavailable for comment.)

Rowling not only says what she thinks; she’s also not afraid to return fire, even when she’s not the target.

As reported by Daily Mail, Rowling blasted British journalist Patrick Strudwick in a Monday tweet, accusing him of running a false story (“fake news,” to some) about a “Let Women Speak” rally, headed by anti-trans activist Kellie-Jay Keen in Melbourne on March 19.

The rally was reportedly gate-crashed by neo-Nazis who performed ta Hitler salute and clashed with trans-rights activists. Strudwick wrote:

“In Melbourne this March, an anti-trans rally organised [sic] by British “gender critical” campaigner Kellie-Jay Keen staged a mass Nazi salute.”

Rowling cited the incident as evidence of the far-right’s influence on those who question the transgender rights agenda, saying there was a “fascist takeover of transphobic ideas.”


She wrote, in a lengthy tweet:

As @PatrickStrud has blocked me on here (we’ve never, to my knowledge, interacted on Twitter or anywhere else) I can’t challenge him directly about the claim he published in iNews (see below) that a Let Women Speak event in Australia ‘staged a mass Nazi salute’. This is a lie so brazen, so easily disprovable and so libellous, I’m amazed it was allowed into print by a supposedly reputable news source.

For years now, women and gay people concerned about the erosion of their rights, the dismantling of safeguarding and the escalating threats and violence of trans activists have been called ‘fascists’ and ‘Nazis’ by people like Strudwick for holding what, until five minutes ago, were solidly left-wing/feminist political positions.

Nobody but useful idiots can be genuinely surprised that REAL fascists have spotted a glorious opportunity in trans activism. The homophobic, anti-feminist far-right has long held that the left is degenerate, foolish, immoral and authoritarian, and now they can point to the incoherent arguments of the gender ideologues, the bullying tactics of the no-platformers and the swarms of masked men threatening violence against women for wanting to retain single-sex spaces, and crow ‘we told you so’.

Actual Nazis have turned up on the fringes of Let Women Speak events for exactly the same reason aggressive, narcissistic trans activists are there. These groups closely resemble each other. Both are rife with misogynistic opportunists who’re using a clash of rights to push their own agendas, both are there in the hope of violence, and neither gives a damn about the women who’re there to speak out in their own voices, about their own lives, on their own behalf. It’s high time those peddling lies like Strudwick’s are held accountable and I sincerely hope @ThePosieParker takes action.


As I first read the above, I envisioned Rowling dropping the mic and walking offstage.

There’s obviously a wide gap between young confused children who, for 15 minutes, think they’re a boy or girl — vs. the girl or boy they were born — and trans activists who storm state Capitols, disrupt state legislatures, and even work through the court system in sick attempts to ban parents’ right to know if their children are being indoctrinated about transgenderism,” gender fluidity,” and other such nonsense in the public school system.

The Bottom Line

While major corporations like Disney, Nike, Transhueser Anhueser-Busch, Target, Kohl’s — the list goes on — place the interests of God knows who above those of their customers and shareholders, J.K. Rowling, whose net worth is roughly $1 billion, stands up for what she believes and doesn’t give a damn about who likes it and who doesn’t. For that, she is to be commended in the strongest of terms.


Meanwhile, in closing, let’s just admit it: Don’t you wish you had enough “Screw you” money to do the same thing — in places where you can’t, and let the damn chips fall where they may? Yeah — me, too.
