A Virginia father who went viral after being dragged out of a Loudoun County school board meeting and arrested for protesting its proposed transgender policies has now revealed he was trying to tell the room that his daughter had been raped by a boy ‘in a skirt’ in the girls’ bathroom.
Scott Smith was photographed on June 22 being dragged out of the heated meeting with his torso exposed in Leesburg, Virginia. The 48-year-old plumber was ridiculed on social media afterwards and was painted by the left to be a deranged, right-wing bigot.
But in an interview with The Daily Wire that was published on Monday, he explains that he was trying to stick up for his daughter, who he says was attacked at Stone Bridge High School on May 28 by a boy ‘in a skirt’ who took advantage of the trans policies to get into the girls’ bathrooms and assault her.
He said he exploded with rage at the meeting after hearing the school’s ultra-liberal staff claim they had never received a report of a sexual assault by a transgender child in the bathrooms or changing rooms when he says that’s exactly what he reported to them on May 28.
Now, Smith says the school board went out of its way to protect the child – ‘a sexual predator’ – but demonize him because he opposed its liberal policies.
‘It has been so hard to keep my mouth shut and wait this out. It has been the most powerless thing I’ve ever been through,’ he said.
‘My wife and I are gay- and lesbian-friendly.
‘We’re not into this children transgender stuff. The person that attacked our daughter is apparently bisexual and occasionally wears dresses because he likes them.
‘So this kid is technically not what the school board was fighting about.
‘The point is kids are using it as an advantage to get into the bathrooms,’ he said.
On the day of the incident, Smith says the school told him to come to the campus because his daughter had been physically assaulted. They did not say she had been sexually assaulted.
