Anchorage Assemblyman Felix Rivera

Anchorage Assemblyman Felix Rivera joined a hard-left Marxist and socialist organization to protest the Alaska Board of Education’s decision to limit girls’ high school sports to biological females.

On Sept. 2, an Alaska’s News Source clip showed Rivera speaking at a rally sponsored by the Party for Socialism and Liberation (PSL) Anchorage, which is part of a national network that seeks to engage local battles across the nation to advance socialist causes like free housing, higher minimum wages, abortion on demand, union growth, climate change legislation and LGBTQ political goals. The PSL national website endorses the use of “militant” tactics to further its causes with the ultimate plan of toppling capitalism and establishing a new socialist government.

“Capitalism cannot be voted out of power—it will take a revolution,” the website states. “The capitalist class will stop at nothing to prevent or overturn reforms by repressing, misdirecting or quelling any form of popular rebellion. Without a complete uprooting of the system that causes all the problems workers and oppressed peoples face, exploitation and oppression will still exist…Only a revolution can do away with the rule of the capitalists once and for all.”

The Anchorage chapter of the Party for Socialism & Liberation regularly holds meetings aimed at advancing socialism in Alaska.

The PSL website goes on to state that the U.S. military and police forces must be “disbanded and replaced by the armed people … A critical task of the new socialist order will be defending itself from the displaced capitalist class that would like to return to the days of exploitation.”

In speaking to about 30 people who participated in the recent protest organized by the local PSL group, Rivera condemned the Alaska Board of Education for banning gender-confused males from competing against high school girls.

“The board gave into their base fears,” he asserted, standing in front of the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. statue at Delaney Park. “They could have done better. They could have, instead of voting on this policy, tried to make youth sports more welcoming for everyone, but instead they decided to do the opposite. And really, shame on the board for that.”

Rivera, who is openly homosexual, is actively involved in advancing leftist political causes throughout Anchorage.

    The Anchorage assembly needs to suck it up. They hard left b.s. has gone to far and the people have spoken against them. The Assembly can’t keep pushing, the people will only let you push so far and this was the breaking point. LGBTQ+ MEN DONT NEED TO TAKE OPPORTUNITIES AWAY FROM WOMEN. If they want to play sports they can still try out for the boys teams. This is equal opportunity for all. It also gives women the opportunity for a scholarship to college in tgeir sport.

    It’s coming after your children with its pants down

  • Johnny says:

    The assembly puts more energy into advancing perversion and the socialist agenda then they do with anything that involves common sense, just plain common sense is clearly lacking. Not having lived there I often wondered how Seattle and Portland slipped into the abyss, now I have a front row seat and it is horrible watching this rot spread, its like a cancer.

  • Jim says:

    Anchorage is a lost cause.

    • Proud Alaskan says:

      Agree Anchorage is a cesspool of a city.

  • Elizabeth Henry says:

    Evil delusion. This is a contagion that is spreading and using blatant lies and misinformation to do so. Pray for the state board of education members for their protection and courage. There is no such thing as ‘trans’ There is male and female. Trans is just a coined word that really means gender dysphoria and merits treatment and, yes, compassion. These deluded people want to encourage a mental illness, force it upon our kids and make it an elevated lifestyle. Mind boggling.

  • Tamra Nygaard says:

    He seems nice. /s

  • Mb says:

    maybe they should move to a socialist country and see how it really works. Also, looking at the PSL website it would fitting for the 3 letter agencies to group PSL into homegrown terrorism

    • Mary says:

      Yes, MB. He/they should spend a year in a socialist/communist country and see first hand how it fits their agenda. I have and it is not at all how they see the America of “their” plans

  • Kenneth L. Wells says:

    These people “marched” in the street and a few of them nearly got run over by an annoyed motorist. I’ve chatted with a few of them via facebook, advising them of the midday sun on Mercury level of stupid it is to play on busy streets. Apparently a few even brought their children which makes me wonder how much they really care about kids. Also makes me wonder what O.C.S. thinks about “parents” forcing their children to play on busy streets.

    One of these wonderful citizens claims an Anchorage Police Dept. officer was sympathetic in regard to her ‘near death experience’. Hard to believe that but this is, after all, a brave new world where people think men can become women and women can become men and a human body is more powerful than a couple of tons of moving metal and plastic.

    Think whatever nonsense floats your boat, just stay on the sidewalks where pedestrians belong. As any two year old child should be able to tell you, Don’t play in the street.

    • Jen says:

      The few nearly hit were very lucky that motorist wasn’t under the influence or in the middle of fighting with their passenger which if you ever seen an Alaskan motorist in a heated yelling fight with their passenger they aren’t really paying attention to the road.

  • Crusty says:

    F Anchorage.

  • Tamra Nygaard says:

    She holds a sign saying “Fight back against hate.” Why do they hate women and girls? I know why Felix does; most gay men could take or leave women, and some are actively hateful. But why the others? I don’t see a single female athlete in the entire group. It isn’t their ox being gored, is it?

    • Michael P Hughes says:

      Tamra, “most gay men could take or leave women”? Please don’t stereotype us, most of us love women l and find what is going on in our culture just as abhorrent as you do. This man and his ilk are angry sociopaths that hate themselves and take it out on others.

  • Proud Alaskan says:

    Felix Rivera Is one of them-PSL.
    He probably feels he’s one of there leaders, throwing his weight around on the Assembly.
    You can’t say that, guards take that person out of here and yes you must wear a mask/diaper on your face. Wherever you go in my city/Anchorage. I’m your leader and you will do as I say.
    Felix is a Loser

  • Proud Alaskan says:

    The PSL website goes on to state that the U.S. military and police forces must be “disbanded and replaced by the armed people.
    Remember America is armed locked and loaded

  • Friend of Humanity says:

    Just about that entire assembly needs to get handed their pink slips and a “Farewell, don’t let the door hit you on the way out.”

    Where’s Waldo, I mean dunleavy!?

  • William says:

    Anyone who pretends or chooses to turn a blind eye to the obvious answer need to take a long hard look in the mirror. If you remove a parasite from society it can no longer plague society. Tar and feathering worked before; being drawn and quartered worked before; hell, the Brazen Bull worked before… they can work again. Send a message, make an example. Take back your city.

  • Steve Peterson says:

    Who is it that keeps voting in that catty greaseball?

  • Mongo says:

    Can someone publish a list of these Commies?

  • Fedupwiththeleft says:

    They love to use the term Hate just to get attention as it has nothing to do with hate. It has to do with an equal playing field, one that this fool doesn’t believe in. He is all about the ideology and his personal agenda to turn the world to his perverted way of thinking.

  • Mary says:

    Felix, is this an insurrection you are calling for? Perhaps your name needs to be removed from future elections! That does seem to be a recent trend taking place in America.

  • Jeff Fenske says:

    BAD LINK in your article.
    The Alaska’s News Source link is a link to this movie trailer: “Nefarious Official Trailer (2023) – In Theaters April 14th”
    Great article though. THANKS for reporting this!
    If Felix can’t get this clear moral issue right he has no right to be deciding anything for Anchorage.

  • Michael says:

    There is much to comment on in this article, but one comment he made shows how lost , how confused he is. “They could have, instead of voting on this policy, tried to make youth sports more welcoming for everyone, but instead they decided to do the opposite. And really, shame on the board for that.” Does he not understand that by imposing the will on the few on the many does not make the environment “welcoming for everyone.” There are times when imposing the will of some on others is justifiable, such as ending racial segregation. But someone has to be extremely confused when they do not understand the difference between girls and boys sports, which by extension means they do not understand even the simplest biology and wish biological facts to be replaced by the rather confused beliefs of the few.

  • Marilyn Wick says:

    Rivera is a joke. He’s a gay pro everything except common sense & the American Constitution & freedoms & rights afforded by the greatest nation worldwide .
    How he EVER got voted on to be an Anchorage assembly person is beyond me; and why is he still on the assembly???

  • Pat Brennan says:

    Can we recall the whole assembly? they are suppose to be reprenting all the people of Anchorage but clearly they are not. They only repersent a small select group. And as one person said, create a trans sports division for school sports and leave them compete against other trans. Its been year since the womens rights movement, they shouldn’t need to start fighting for their rights again,

  • Carol Allums says:

    I want to know why these idiots aren’t charged with insurrection.
