Libertarian Commentary #16-20A by Nathan Barton
The TYRANT has spoken. According to The Associated Press, the White House planned to issue a directive to ALL PUBLIC SCHOOL DISTRICTS: “Public schools must permit transgender students to use bathrooms and locker rooms consistent with their chosen gender identity … The guidance from leaders at the departments of Education and Justice says public schools are obligated to treat transgender students in a way that matches their gender identity, even if their education records or identity documents indicate a different sex.”
Even the NY Times called it a “decree.” Emperors and tyrants issue decrees. Free people do NOT live by decree. No matter WHAT your opinion or position on this truly stupid subject, how can you NOT say, “Enough is Enough.”
Texas’ Lieutenant Governor Patrick had it right (Story in Politico): Texas will not be blackmailed. But the solution, Mr. Lt. Governor, is a simple one: Texas can secede. Or it can waste time, telling its representatives in DC to impeach the monster, and its senators to convict him, and restore the Republic – and when that fails, THEN secede. (Supposedly, as reported by Zero Hedge, there is a resolution in the GOP state convention in Texas this week TO have a ballot initiative on restoring independence to the Republic of Texas. If it exists, it isn’t expected to pass.) Patrick also had it right when he said that home-schooling numbers will explode. (So no doubt that will be the next target of opportunity for the regime in DC, in the remainder of squatter’s term and the “third” term as taken by Clinton or Sanders. (Well, at least there is fairly good proof that both Sanders and Clinton were born someplace in the Fifty States.) After all, homeschooling is anti-social, and engaged in only by bigoted homophobes and haters of sick people who don’t want their children molested, at least not by children and adults of the other sex with mental problems.)
LIstening to people from various states this week, I hear a deep anger, and suspicion that this was NOT some “grassroots” effort to make “transgender rights” to use the toilet of their choice a critical issue at this time. Nor does everyone just have worries about how pedophiles and perverts (their word) will use this to attack children in public toilets, including schools. Many believe this is an orchestrated attack nationally to twist and change the culture while creating still more confusion and widening the gulf between liberal and conservative, older generations and younger generations, while letting the FedGov (especially the White House) claim more and more power. Some talked about how decency is being eliminated, and how this is the next, more extreme step in the overall “war” for forcing people to accept such things as same-sex “marriage,” public sex, pedophilia, and other behaviors.
It is clearly a major grab of power by DC, seeking to dictate not just what is being served in school lunchrooms (even private ones) across the Fifty States, but the minute to minute behavior in the halls, locker rooms, and toilets.
Enough is enough.
Mama’s Note: LOOK! The Emperor has no clothes on!!
I’m still waiting for someone to tell us just how many of these “transgender” people exist. I’ve never seen one myself, that I know of. Those who mind their own business won’t be noticed, and those who don’t – especially those who attempt to harm others – should be dealt with like any other aggressor. There are perverts and aggressors in both sexes, not just homosexuals.
Self defense, and supervision of the children is what is needed here, not someone outside of bathroom doors looking up skirts or unzipping pants to discover the “birth” sex of everyone. Not that it would even be possible, so it escapes me just how anyone hopes to enforce this edict anyway.
Tell the Emperor to go fly a kite… in a thunderstorm.
