A transgender activist, who served 30 years in prison for attempted murder and other violent crimes, was celebrated at a “Trans Pride” march over the weekend.
Dangerous felon “Sarah Jane Baker” was one of the speakers at the Trans+ Pride event in London on Saturday.
He took to the stage waving an Antifa flag and told the cheering crowd to use violence against those critical of far-left gender ideology.
Baker, a biological male, specifically called on the crowd to attack women who don’t support transgenders.
“I was gonna come here and be really fluffy and be really nice and say yeah be really lovely and queer and gay,” Baker yelled through a megaphone.
“Nah, if you see a TERF, punch them in the f****** face.”
“TERF” (trans-exclusionary radical feminist) is a term used by the “woke” mob to describe someone, usually a real woman, who refuses to comply with the unscientific ideology.

Baker’s speech incited fury on social media and users called for Trans Pride to take a stance against the violence.
Left-wing Labour Party MP Clive Lewis shared people’s anger over the comment and wrote: “Advocating violence against others is wrong & this is no exception.
“But as you’ll be aware violent language and actions are not unique to one side on this issue.
“That doesn’t justify the above in any way, but it does require we acknowledge the general toxicity & step back from it.”
Alice Sullivan, a professor of sociology at University College London, replied to Lewis saying: “Male violence against women and girls is not a ‘both sides’ issue.
“There are simply no examples of feminists issuing these kinds of violent threats.
“Every time women organize to discuss our rights we are faced with abuse.
“It shouldn’t be hard to condemn that unequivocally.”
She also called on him to provide an example of feminists “behaving like this.”
The Trans+ Pride event saw thousands march through London in what they referred to as the “biggest-ever” demonstration for transgenders.
The event concluded with speeches by activists in Hyde Park Corner.
One of them was Baker, who took the stage holding an Antifa flag and calling for violence.
Baker was originally jailed for kidnapping and torturing his stepmother’s brother.
While behind bars, he was then convicted of the attempted murder of another inmate.
He was released in 2019.
A Met Police spokesperson said: “We are aware of a video filmed in Westminster on Saturday, 8 July showing a speaker making remarks during the Trans Pride event.
“We have received a number of reports in relation to the video.
“Officers are reviewing it to determine what further action may be necessary.”
In 2021, Baker appeared at the London Trans Pride march where protesters held signs stating “Kill JK Rowling” and “Be trans, do crime.”
