A convicted child molester was leading the charge to enact a pro-LGBT ordinance in a small West Virginia city only to be exposed by a grassroots organization that is putting LGBT activists and their allies on defense.
Late last year, in Star City, the effort to pass a so-called SOGI ordinance there began when transgender activist “Dee Dee” McIntosh led a crowd of LGBT activists to a city council meeting and demanded city leaders enact the sexual-orientation, gender-identity law the group was introducing.
McIntosh, a biological man named Donald David McIntosh, urged city leaders to pass the proposed law that he handed to them to review. In February, he returned with the crowd, and a TV news crew, to ask why the city council had failed to take action.
WDTV 5, a local CBS News affiliate, reported that the "much-anticipated" ordinance, written by LGBT group PLFAG for the city's approval, had yet to be reviewed by the city council.
"People deserve to be treated equally," McIntosh told the news. "Civil rights are civil rights. Equality is equality."
Meanwhile, grassroots group Mass Resistance learned of the pro-LGBT push from its West Virginia chapter and began to push back, too. Star City leaders were warned that McIntosh’s calls for “civil rights protections” for homosexuals, lesbians, and transgenders almost always leads to punishment for Christian business owners who refuse to abandon their orthodox beliefs about marriage and human sexuality.
MassResistance also began digging into McIntosh’s background and learned the outspoken LGBT activist, an ex-teacher from nearby Morgantown, is known for a sick, sordid history of abusing school children under his care.
Morgantown, a liberal enclave that is home to West Virginia University, is known as a hub of LGBT activism in the otherwise conservative area.
Arthur Schaper, a spokesman for MassResistance, tells OneNewsNow the group learned that Morgantown’s most visible LGBT advocate was convicted in 1998 of three counts of third-degree sexual battery. That means, he says, that the former teacher assaulted children under the age of 16.
“There were numerous young people [McIntosh] had molested as a teacher over a 40-year period,” Schaper tells OneNewsNow. “A number of them testified against him in court to establish a pattern of this abuse.”
Homosexual activists howl in protest at claims their community is filled with sexual predators, but MassResisance activists in the Morgantown community insist that McIntosh's predatory behavior was well known and yet he was moved from school to school.
In its effort to examine the ex-teacher's history, MassResistance says it uncovered a court document stating the school teacher was instructed to never be alone with a child in the school building nor enage in one-on-one conversations with them.
Shaming 'story hour'
Digging up the criminal history of LGBT activists has become a common task for MassResistance and its scattered, grassroots members, who have battled well-funded LGBT groups, angry city council members, liberal library staff, and biased media outlets in just the last year.
The group famously shamed a Houston, Texas public library last year for allowing two convicted sex offenders (pictured at left) to read to children. Just weeks later, the group learned a public elementary school in liberal-run Austin allowed a drag queen to read to children despite a prostitution conviction.
Back in Morgantown, West Virginia, MassResistance members were alerted last November to a planned drag queen reading at the Morgantown Public Library. After learning the names of the two drag queens, some digging on social media revealed lewd, depraved posts and images of “Dimitria Blackwell” and “Robin Hearts-Love” advertising their raunchy shows at homosexual clubs.
(OneNewsNow is not providing a link to the images due to their graphic nature).
According to MassResistance, library staff ignored the concerns about the two drag queens but local public officials, confronted with the raunchy material, agreed it was inappropriate to allow them to participate.
A day before it was scheduled to happen, the story hour was cancelled.
Responding to the growing pressure, Morgantown Public Library announced the story hour was cancelled due to “multiple threats of violence against the volunteer readers.”
According to MassResistance, library staff failed to prove any threats of violence when Schaper filed a Freedom of Information request for such records, but the claims of violence led to a large pro-LGBT rally outside the library and also a sympathetic news story by The Associated Press.
