In an bizarre identity politics effort, popular conservative News Talk 95.5 radio Aaron Flint went on the defense of Josh Butterfly—a convicted violent rapist of a 15-year-old male.
Conservative hero and martyr.
The argument was Montana democrats were being discrimatory and hypocritical when it came to free speech after republicans voted Zoey Zephyr be silenced for the rest of the legislative session because they had asked Butterfly to get off the stand.

Zephyr's now nationally known thoughtcrime offense was calling out government overreach of intrusive, unconstitutional, LGBTQ-phobic bills previous, stating the next time these people invoke their God in prayer she hopes they "see the blood on your hands" for all of the damage they're doing to Montana's LGBTQ community, which will no doubt lead to greater suicides.

The Montana so'-called Freedom Caucus argued this implied she was promoting a mass shooting against them. Because that's a perfectly reasonable stretch to them, apparently?
The truth is stranger than fiction when it comes to Flint's source (he's proundly mentioned a few times), as Mr. Butterfly firstly presented himself as a medical information witness for the "Implement Medical Ethics and Diversity Act" in testimony about bill allowing doctors to discriminate against LGBTQ people based on religious beliefs.
When he began to testify, Butterfly did what he always does and that is give a rambling, inchorent, and unrelated monologue about the US Census and how he had all sorts of "evidence" how against Native American transgender people (see: me and a friend) who allegedly "utilized the culture and Two Spirited being against us."
Confirmed: Aaron Flint goes full woke. Defends ‘medical expert’ Dr. Butterfly.
Whatever that means. It gets more confusing, I promise.
Someone said, "You are not an informational witness" to which Butterfly replied, “The transgenders, they put us in a hate category by using our own cultures against us. Their presence today represents the blood of the people in a form of Manifest Destiny."
And then he said he was stonewalled by the transgenders, apparently, like (the late) Eloise Cobell was.
He was again told to stick to the subject of the bill by the republican Committee chair, of which he of course did not. He was eventually asked to leave the stand, and then asked to leave the room for reasons unknown off camera. They committee had shocked looks on their faces anyway.
Butterfly is notorious for making scenes and giving this same rambling monologue at various testimonies which have been shut down numerous times beyond this one on bills that have zero to do with the US Census or trans people.
But Flint said in defense of the convicted rapist of a 15-year-old after interviewing him, “This is outrageous. If a white Republican had done this, they would be getting lambasted all over the media all week long over this."
The peculiar thing is conservative publications have defended Mr. Butterfly because he is vehemently transphobic just like they are. In fact, Mr. Butterfly himself ran an advertisement on behalf of notorious LGBTQ-phobe (former Pastor) Jordan Hall.
“NATIVE AMERICAN VOICES” is just one Josh Butterfly saying “I am Native American.”
Both Hall and Butterfly became obsessed with me, with the Hall writing a libelous hit piece against me (which I successfully sued him for) and then hosting a bunch of across the state anti-LGBTQ-type rallies where he, like Butterfly, was also interviewed by Flint.
Butterfly became obsessed with me even though I've never formally met them and only saw him in Helena in passing once last year in which he gave a bizarre, 10 minute testimony upset the republican committee chair because of course again the testimony had nothing to do with the bill.
Once he was told he was "out of order!" and they had to basically pull him off the podium after he walked back up the stand and promised this time he would talk about the topic (spoiler alert: he did not) and started playing a phone recording of himself into the microphone. Just giving the committee a blank stare…
“Eeee! That man gonna getchu!” -Every Native mom.
One of these testimonies is on YouTube, titled "Census fraud Tribal leaders leading nation" (sic), they like literally posted it like over 50 times on Twitter on January 29 on about every Montana News tweet they could find. In it he said we "transgender activist" tried to fight him in the Capitol, and his story actually mirrors Hall's fabricated story about me supposedly yelling in the face of an elderly Senator which of course did not happen.
Conservatives have a notorious habit of seething and lying whenever a trans person dares enters the Montana Capitol.
Now, in one of Butterfly's stories—and this isn't going to make sense but it is what I deciphered—he claims there's a pizza parlor in Great Falls that had a chemical fire which somehow relates to a child porn cover-up. Like, a literal #pizzagate story, but in Montana.
He wrote, "Responsible individuals for covered up census fraud/chemical exposure/child porn scandal and engaging in the Rico Act as follows but not limited to;..." ...and he has a link to a bunch of Native American organizations, Steve Bullock, some other dems, and me as one of those "responsible" for said chemical fire porn cover up at a pizza parlor I've never been to. And I also did census fraud. And I stole $80 million dollars in doing so.
And so I imagine Aaron Flint heard this story as well, and instead of deciding this probably wasn't the most reputable source, he just went with it because Native American ttransphobe rapist but he happens to be a transphobe, right?
Last year Butterfly called up Humanities Montana as I do historical lectures for them about Indigenous LGBTQ folks and told them I was "silencing him" and he was going to to send all of his information about me to the Attorney General.
And the whole time this is happening, Jordan Hall is going back and forth to Great Falls trying lombaste me and my attorneys for suing him about his dangerous lies I legit feared would stoke some crazy to commit violence upon me, and of course insert Butterfly—a huge supporter of Hall.
On Feb. 1, 2022 Montana District Court Judge John Parker wrote a memo in reference to our case to the Cascade County Bar Association stating:
I urge each of you to review the news reports and bear security issues closely in mind during times when you and your clients have business in the courthouse. It is critical that you take a personal interest in your own safety and the safety of your clients, your colleagues, court personnel and judges.
That's some real shit, right there to know a judge had to write that about your case.
Weeks later, Butterfly traveled over 200 miles to a place he thought I worked at looking for me along with another man. He posted a video of them before going into the building after going off his "child porn cover-up" delusion.
Maybe he does personally have a bunch of child porn on him.
He even like went on my Facebook page to tell me he knows where I live, and that I gave that information in a testimony in Billings years ago.
After the libel lawsuit against Hall was settled, I made vague mention of the dangers I was in thanks to Hall's lies which included someone traveling over 200 miles looking for me.
While it didn't mention him by name, afew days later Butterfly sent a rambling, 1,200 word email of various sized fonts to literally 400 politically affiliated recipients outright admitting he was the anonymous person in question, and then of course his incoherent nonsense.
This… is normal.🔥🐶🏚🔥
While one isn't supposed to use public record sex offender/criminal registry information to harass someone, at this point I feel they have crossed lines, and it is very concerning to have someone with a previous rape charge stalking me, so I decided I better make this public as a layer of protection as he seems "active" again and emboldened, so to speak, and people are aware of the types of violent rapists weaponized and platformed by the likes of JD Hall and Aaron Flint.
News Talk 95.5 promotes infamous Nazi Jewish, trans, Special needs doxxing, harassing website to attack Zoey Zephyr
Speaking of harassment, there's a reason why a lot trans people want their medical records and private information put in a sealed file, and that's because amoral creeps like Aaron Flint who are obsessed with their genitilia.
And by background, they mean creepily obsess over her genitals & imagined sex life they literally just make up.
We say this as almost a trope, but Aaron Flint showcased this trait by highlighting a piece via writer Jeremy Carl, who became infamous for quoting a Nazi organization for a source, American Renaissance, which Southern Poverty Law Center says “has been one of the vilest white nationalist publications, often promoting eugenics and blatant anti-black and anti-Latino racists."
“Just reading my Nazi peridodical to develop my talking points.” -Jeremy Carl, prolly.
To keep this track record going, Carl sunk deeper into the depths of the dark web and know uses the infamous Kiwi Farms website to get his “info,” which the tech magazine Gizomdo calls "an online forum best known for harboring stalkers, white supremacists, and overall being one of the worst cesspits the internet has to offer.”
The Jewish magazine Forward noted how this site likes to keep a “kill count” of how many people they harassed into suicide.
Is this really the direction of conservative pundits? They just going full Nazi now?
Carl says, "Much of this information about Zephyr was pieced together from posts on Kiwi Farms, a trollish but at times sophisticated online message board..." and praises it's "investigative journalism" that has lead to swatting of numerous individuals, where people are subjected to fake emergency calls to police, oft claiming a violent crime has been committed in hopes the person is arrested or hurt by police.
"investigative journalism" according to Aaron Flint and Carl is when send SWAT teams to people's houses.
The piece goes into details about Zephyr's "vaginoplasty" and her "natural genitals.”
It makes a claim that because there was some sort of sex scandal in the Smash Bros videogame forums--which is literally the most popular fighting videogame in the world—that Zephyr is somehow a deviant because of it. And he also tries to link people who like the uber popular anime with being pedophiles cuz of…Mr. Beast has a trans friend?
Note to Flint and Carl: The people who read the Bible have had far more sex scandals. So your link to Zephyr seems, I don't know, redundant? But I suppose your point is to make it seem like a guilt by association because some naive boomer isn't going to understand that.
Nowadays, if a trans woman dares express any interest in sex or tries to be sexy or even look nice, they're deemed "autogynophiles" by transphobes who assume they only transitioned because of purely sexual motivations. Because humans aren't supposed to have a sex drive or look good, I guess?
So of course beyond being a legit creepy hitpiece it is, it claims Zephyr is part of a debunked "autogynophelia" theory popularized by literal trans chaser Dr. Ray Blanchard who writes steamy passages like:
“I start upstairs to get the panoramic view and I see Kim for the first time, on the stairs, dancing, posing. She is spectacular, exotic (I find out later that she is from Belize), and sexy. Her body is incredibly curvaceous, which is a clue that it may not be natural. And I notice a very subtle and not-unattractive angularity of the face, which is also not clearly diagnostic on this tall siren. It is difficult to avoid viewing Kim from two perspectives: as a researcher but also as a single, heterosexual man.”
Pictured: Flint and Carl call it being "researchers."
And Carl's source gets worse, as this Dr. Blanchard's supposedly extensive research involves someone who made—no joke—a sex robot.
Which I could see why Carl finds stories of sexy trans women from Belize and someone with a sex robot fascinating, it's not the great scientific breakthrough thry think it is as far as trans people go nor does it have anything to do with Zoey Zephyr, just saying.

I have been stalked and harassed and had all sorts of terrible things said about me.
While I have sealed records on some personal things, I also make no qualms amd am an open book that I was addicted to substances and ended up going to felony treatment. And as smart as I was, I couldn't out think it.
While always an addict, the murder of my brother a year younger than me set me in such an intense whirlpool of addiction it nearly drowned me.
I now take it—as they say—day by day, and proudly celebrated five hard-earned years of recovery last September with an oven pizza and discount slice of Albertson's grocery store cake one quite Wednesday evening.
But you don't want to see my humanity. You just want to create this monster. This caricature in order so if someone does eventually hate me enough to hurt me, you already justified it in your head.
Nazis seething I disrupted their operations.
And yet you still wake up every morning, try to look your nicest cuz you "represent," take a deep breath knowing all these terrible things are said about you, and you walk out the door with your head high everyday whilst remaining regal despite what bullies like Flint and Carl say.
I sit in a coffee shop. I order a tea. And write things like this. Cuz even if you don't think so, I belong—as does every other trans person in Montana.
I had to learn to love myself enough to quit drinking—love myself enough to embrace being trans--while also celebrating the fact my Northern Cheyenne and other Montana Indigilenous cultures have embraced those like me and Zoey since time immemorial.
