S. Lane Tucker, U.S. Attorney for the District of Alaska

Alaska’s chief federal law enforcement official gave an agenda driven speech to those attending the Anchorage LGBTQ ‘Pride Parade’ this past Saturday.

Tapped by President Biden in 2022 to serve as the Dept. of Justice’s top prosecutor for the District of Alaska, S. Lane Tucker wields considerable power.

Standing on the mainstage following the parade around Delaney Park, Tucker emphasized that her office was intent on rooting out not only criminal but also alleged non-criminal acts of so-called “hate” or “bias” against the LGBTQ community.

Her June 24 talk began by extolling the history of the gay rights movement in America, and celebrating the fact that she can now use her official authority to openly advance the LGBTQ agenda.

“To now be able to stand here and address you today with the full support of the United States government, is incredibly fulfilling,” Tucker said.

After noting that the DOJ initially began 150 years ago as a way to protect the rights of formerly enslaved black Americans, she linked this historic mission to the new cause of advancing the ever-expanding LGBTQ agenda, all while claiming that the DOJ remains committed to its “essential” callling.

“I’m proud to continue that mission,” she asserted. “President Biden very much supports this work. On his very first day in office, the president issued an executive order preventing and combating discrimination on the basis of gender identity or sexual orientation. Last year the president issued an executive order on advancing equality for LGBTQI individuals, and he signed the landmark, bi-partisan respect for marriage act. And just a few weeks ago President Biden issued a proclamation, formerly declaring June as LGBTQI+ month.”

Tucker said she is “unwaveringly … committed to equality and to standing with the LGBTQ+ community to keep up the fight for safety, opportunity, dignity, and justice for all.”

She then announced that Alaska was joining all other 94 U.S. Attorneys offices in rolling out the DOJ’s “United Against Hate” program.

Many conservatives, however, worry that the DOJ is increasingly being used to intimidate non-violent and law-abiding Americans who simply oppose the radical social and political agenda of the far left.

This nationwide initiative uses hypothetical scenarios to depict hate crime cases and stories with the goal of enlisting left-leaning community groups to collaborate with law enforcement. Program topics include defining “hate crimes” versus “hate incidents,” emphasizing the importance of reporting acts of hate and providing options for responding to hate incidents, even when situations fail to constitute any actual crime.

Tucker then turned her attention on law-abiding citizens who might simply oppose the LGBTQ political agenda in Alaska.

“The effort requires more than prosecutions,” Tucker proclaimed. “That is why the department is also focused on noncriminal acts of bias in our schools, neighborhoods, workplaces, education and awareness.”

She added that the “stronger the ties between the communities and law enforcement, the more faith the communities will have that their allegations will be taken seriously and will be thoroughly investigated.”

Many conservatives, however, worry that the DOJ is increasingly being used to intimidate and silence non-violent and law-abiding Americans who simply oppose the radical social and political agenda of the far left.

Over the past year, the DOJ has accused concerned parents of domestic terrorism and hate crimes for raising strong objections before various school boards and city councils about controversial policies and curriculums – many surrounding LGBTQ-infused sex education, pornographic school library books and transgender bathroom and sports policies. The department has also gone after pro-life advocates, the vast majority of whom peacefully share pro-life alternatives and messages with women entering abortion clinics.

Additionally, numerous conservatives claim the Biden administration selectively enforces the law against political opponents while refusing to prosecute the more than 100 attacks on pro-life pregnancy centers and churches over the past year, including several in Alaska.

“I don’t think that things can go too much further with the view that law enforcement, particularly the FBI or the Department of Justice, runs a two-tiered system of justice,” Special Counsel John Durham said in his testimony last week before the U.S. House Judiciary Committee. “The nation can’t stand under those circumstances.”

Tucker, however, was emphatic that her Alaska DOJ office will forcefully go after alleged instances of “hate.”

“This moment requires an all-hands-on-deck strategy to fully confront all unlawful acts of crime,” she told the cheering crowd at the Pride celebration. “The United against hate program brings together the vast network of civil rights, government, faith and community-based leaders needed to report, promote prevention strategies and build a resilience to confront hate crimes.”

Tucker ended with a spurt of unfiltered federally backed activism.

“But as all of you know, just as important to standing up to hate, is expressing love,” she said. “That is why the department’s theme for the 2023 LGBTQI+ Pride Month is ‘Peace, Love and Solidarity.’ My fellow Alaskans, love wins. Happy Pride.”

    “unlawful acts of crime”
    Tautologically redundant much?

  • Friend of Humanity says:

    Is S. Lane Tucker a male or a female? Tucker looks to have very distinct manly features imho.

    • Friend of Humanity says:

      Biden nominated Tucker for this position on 1/26/22. Things that make you go HM-M-M-M.

  • Mb says:

    I know I should judge a book by it cover but……

  • Jen says:

    Furthermore you can’t love if one doesn’t love God with their whole heart, mind, and soul. There was just as little love at the pride parade that day as there is in churches. They aren’t asking for love, the crowd is still asking for tolerance, when they don’t know how to love.

    • Lucinda says:

      Jen, are you saying that, as an atheist, I do not love my wife?

      • Aunt Sally says:

        Richard Dawkins would say that you’re crippled by nasty viruses of the mind, Lucinda, and Darwin would readily declare you a terribly unfit dysgenic mess,

  • ML, just common sense says:

    So called hate crimes are a redundancy of the law, in that the crime is already on the books, but we’re going to bump up the consequence because they had a dislike or hate for the individual. So, what we are talking about is opening the door to being punished for how you feel or think. You are a non-conformance, you know like at the beginning of this nation when non-conforming patriots said we’re not buying into this taxation without representation business, and we hate them for it enough to go to war. Smells of Nazi Germany in the late 1930’s.
    So, now the obviously Bull Dyke, US District Attorney, appointed by a President that Alaskans did not vote for is asking our government officials to be on the lookout for non-compliant, and non-conforming individuals within the State system, or those pulled into it by the courts, to basically rat out others for possible consequences, or a higher level of consequence based on what they think. Do you like the sound of that? Well do you? People of the LGBTUI, variety have traditionally been diagnosed as individuals with forms of mental health disorders. I have seen nothing to change my mind about that position. It is creditable, logical, moral, and diagnosable. It’s time for people to stand up to this insanity. Men in women’s sports, Men dressed as women in schools with our children, where and when will it stop? When “we the people” make it stop, that’s when!!

  • Proud Alaskan says:

    Tucker said she is “unwaveringly … committed to equality and to standing with the LGBTQ+ community to keep up the fight for safety, opportunity, dignity, and justice for all.”

    I say again, what right’s don’t these sick individuals have, that I don’t have?

    • Richard K CORBeil says:

      A more pertinent question might be, what rights do they have that we don’t? It seems to me that when they have the right to cross a safety border such as bathrooms and we don’t have the right to resist them our rights are being squashed and their desires are bight bolstered as rights.

  • Lucinda says:

    Gosh, someone who advances peace and tolerance and good will – seems like Christians should welcome her.

    • Friend of Humanity says:

      ““The effort requires more than prosecutions,” Tucker proclaimed. “That is why the department is also focused on noncriminal acts of bias in our schools, neighborhoods, workplaces, education and awareness.”” This sures to heck does not sound like someone who is promoting peace and tolerance, but rather telling people that IF they even think or talk against the narrative they will suffer the consequences. Seems like Lucinda should be able to see this since she is so smart and into peace and love.

    • Richard K CORBeil says:

      Only to the utterly myopic mind.

  • George says:

    It’s time to ban homosexual marriage and criminalize homosexual behavior, like 70 other countries do.

  • Trouser Bark says:

    Looks like she must really like the clam, eh? Can’t say it defies appearances.

  • Ruth Ewig says:

    This OBiden nominee does not understand the First Amendment. These promises of hers are against our Original Constitution. She is violating the law by threatening those of us who apply Scripture, Biology and reality to our decision making. Our constitution protects our religious rights. This person is threatening what America stands for. This person is the criminal. Keep praying for our country and pushing back against the God-haters.

  • Matthew myers says:

    Judging by the way she looks, I would guess that she is not impartial about this issue. I’d bet she is quite bullish on special privileges for the perverted crowd.

  • Lucinda says:

    I don’t hate your god Ruth cuz I’m an atheist; there’s nothing to hate. I do dislike Christians forcing their private beliefs into the public governmental sphere. Keep your unsupportable beliefs to yourself.

    • River says:

      What about the LGBT cult shoving their beliefs down people’s throats?Keep your unsupportable beliefs to yourself.

      • Lucinda says:

        Don’t go to Pride events then.

      • Trouser Bark says:

        That’s too much of a cranky remark even for me. I’ll never be Christian enough to stone anyone. I would like fags to keep aberrant behavior out of the public eye and damn sure out of the schools. Just last week a dude in a dress politician was caught distributing child porn. Far too many revolting individuals in that group. Ever wonder what the ratio is of chomo’s to other criminals is in the federal penal system? It’s higher than you think. Way higher.

        Aw screw it. Joel please remove my two relevant comments.

  • Friend of Humanity says:

    Interesting conversation talking about the foreign corporation running our country and how we can become a free and natural person again. About 1 hour long and worth the listen folks!

  • Sally S Duncan says:

    This is why our judicial system needs revamped. Get her OUT.

  • Friend of Humanity says:

    Pete Santilli show talking about Michigan looking to criminalize Christian opposition to the alphabet soup group agenda.
