‘Transgender Women of Color’

Gregory Dodds, also known as Deeniquia “Dee Dee” Dodds.

GLAAD (the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) is a propaganda operation that enforces media conformity to the official ideology of the LGBT “rights” movement. With an annual budget of more than $10 million, GLAAD exercises an Orwellian influence over media coverage of such issues, and has recently made this demand to journalists: “Report on the brutal violence perpetrated against transgender people, particularly transgender women of color.”

Well, a journalist must ask, who is perpetrating this “brutal violence”?


Say hello to Cyheme Hall, 23, who along with his brother Shareem Hall, 25, has confessed his role in the July 2016 murder of Gregory Dodds, 22, also known as Deeniquia “Dee Dee” Dodds. The Hall brothers testified in court this month during the trial of their two accused co-conspirators, Jalonta Little, 28, and Monte Johnson, 23:

Defense attorneys for two men on trial in the fatal shooting of a transgender woman attacked the credibility of the government’s key witnesses — brothers who have admitted a role in the crime.
Two friends, Montee Tyree Johnson, 23, of Upper Marlboro, Md., and Jolanta Little, 28, of Southeast Washington are charged with first-degree murder while armed, robbery, conspiracy and other offenses in the July 4, 2016, shooting of Deeniquia “Dee Dee” Dodds.
In an effort to tie the men to the killing, prosecutors put on the witness stand two brothers who testified they participated in the deadly robbery and implicated Johnson and Little. During their closing arguments Thursday, defense attorneys said the brothers played down their roles in the crimes in hopes of receiving lighter prison sentences and conspired to place the blame on Johnson and Little.
Prosecutors say that before 3 a.m. that July morning, Dodds, 22, was walking home in the 200 block of Division Avenue when four men pulled up in a car. Two of the men jumped out and pushed Dodds to the ground. But she fought back, prosecutors said.
Prosecutors say Johnson shot Dodds in the neck and the men grabbed her purse and ran.
Four men initially were charged in the case. Two of them, Cyheme Hall, 23, and his older brother, Shareem, have pleaded guilty to second-degree murder. The brothers agreed to testify against Little and Johnson.
During the past three weeks in Judge Milton C. Lee’s courtroom in D.C. Superior Court, the Hall brothers gave detailed accounts of the night Dodds was shot.
The brothers testified that minutes before approaching Dodds, their group robbed another transgender woman on Eastern Avenue. They then hopped in Little’s white Pontiac and drove a few blocks, where they saw Dodds, the Halls said.
After the shooting, they got back in the car and drove to K Street, where they robbed other transgender victims, the brothers testified. Both said that Little and Johnson orchestrated the night’s events. And both testified that Johnson shot Dodds.
“They killed Dee Dee but they didn’t have any remorse as they decided to do other robberies. They did it just as casually as other men pick up a basketball game,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Thomas N. Saunders said.
By the time the sun was coming up, the men had robbed seven people, leaving one dying, prosecutors said.

Thus was “brutal violence” perpetrated against a transgender woman of color, to employ GLAAD’s phrasing, and I wonder if they approve of the decision by editors at the Washington Post to bury that story inside the Metro section of their paper, on Page B5. As I explained last month (“The Media’s ‘Climate of Hate’ Myth,” American Spectator, Jan. 18), activists claim to know the cause of these crimes: “Many people have asked if the current regressive political climate legitimized by the language and policies of the Trump administration and others could be contributing to the rise of hate violence. Our answer is yes.… Over and over, President Donald Trump and his administration have attempted to erase, demonize and discriminate against members of the LGBTQ community.”

So, according to activists, President Trump is ultimately responsible for this murder committed by Cyheme, Raheem, Montee and Jolanta. But the story still got buried on Page B5, for some reason, and you don’t hear any complaints from GLAAD, do you? It’s so mysterious . . .
