A progressive activist caused turmoil during a meeting of San Francisco’s Board of Supervisors on Tuesday, subjecting attendees to a hideous banshee scream in protest of the death of a black transgender activist.
Lia McGeever took the podium during Tuesday’s meeting to protest a decision by the city’s criminal justice system not to prosecute the Walgreen’s security guard who fatally shot a transgender activist last month. McGeever stepped up wearing a mask over her face and proceeded to unleash an invective against the board, replete with expletives, self-pity and banshee terror.
“My name is Lia McGeever. I live in D6. I hate a lot of people on this board,” the charming activist began as she introduced herself.
“I don’t have any words today. I just want you to feel our pain. I don’t know if you can at this point, based off your policy choices, but I have to pretend you have some form of empathy left. So I am going to spend the next minute screaming, because that is what is going on in here. That is what the trans genocide in this country, in this city has brought me to.”
“Aaaaaaaaaaah,” McGeever continued. “Aaaaaaaah. Aaaaaah! Aaaaaaah! Imagine that! Aaaaaa! I hate this. I hate what you’ve done to us. I hate what you’re doing to us I hate you Board of Supervisors. I hate you London Breed. I hate you Jenkins. AAAAAAAAAAAAAH!”
McGeever’s tantrum follows after San Francisco’s District Attorney Brooke Jenkins declined to press charges against Michael Earl-Wayne Anthony, a 33-year-old Walgreen’s security guard who fatally shot trans activist Banko Brown.
“The evidence clearly shows that the suspect believed he was in mortal danger and acted in self-defense,” Jenkins said on Monday.
Of course, this decision was made early in the week before McGeever’s persuasive speech before the San Francisco Board of Supervisors. Only time will tell if policymakers in the Golden City will be swayed by her moving testimony or if their ears will ever recover from the incident.
