Typical Friday disaster: Obama requires all public schools to permit boys in girl’s restrooms May 13, 2016Posted by Tantumblogo in abdication of duty, disaster, error, family, General Catholic, mortification, paganism, persecution, Revolution, scandals, secularism, self-serving, sexual depravity, sickness, Society, unadulterated evil.
Typical of the Obama administration, a highly controversial, unconstitutional, and heavy handed administrative action, counter to all law and decency, has been released on a Friday (actually shortly before midnight Thursday), the slowest news day of the week. The hope being that, by the time Monday rolls around, the 24 hour news cycle will have moved on, or outrage over this shocking departure from the former “checks and balances” of American government can be dismissed as “old news.”
Obama has had the Department of Education, which Ronald Reagan sadly failed in closing, issue a directive to all public schools in the nation that they had better accommodate the mental illness of an aggrieved few, permitting boys to use girls restrooms and vice versa, or face the heavy hand of federal persecution. Schools that fail to comply could not only lose federal funding, but also be the target of expensive lawsuits from the federal government and aggrieved students.
I say again, sending kids to public school by choice (and not serious circumstance) now amounts to such a dereliction of parental duty it in all likelihood rises to the level of sin:
The Department of Education will instruct every public school in America to provide “suitable” bathroom and locker room facilities to match transgender students “chosen gender identity.”…….
……..The directive comes from two top administration officials: Catherine E. Lhamon, the assistant secretary of education for civil rights, and Vanita Gupta, head of the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division. It will put state and local officials and higher-education institutions on notice that they risk losing federal education aid if they limit students to areas or teams based on their gender assigned at birth. [Look on the upside! A lot of girls basketball teams are going to win state championships with 6′ 8″ bearded centers! How many “women’s” basketball, soccer, etc., teams at the collegiate level will not soon be stocked with men? So, in effect, the Obama administration is citing Title IX to UNDO exactly what Title IX was supposed to fix (even though it was fatally flawed from the outset)]
The action comes just days after the Justice Department and the state of North Carolina filed dueling lawsuits over a new law requiring individuals in that state to use bathrooms based on their birth gender.
Citing Title IX, which prohibits sexual discrimination at educational institutions that receive federal funding, the two officials warn that the obligation “to ensure nondiscrimination on the basis of sex requires schools to provide transgender students equal access to educational programs and activities even in circumstances in which other students, parents, or community members raise objections or concerns.
They also add that your considered objections and deeply held beliefs don’t move them a bit, you bible-humping Christofascists.
Greg Abbot has announced he will fight this latest, lawless, and egregious move by the Obama administration to crush federalism and rule by executive fiat. How many lefties claim Richard Nixon was going to crown himself king and destroy the American system of governance, for acts that were not even 1/10th as illegal/unconstitutional as Obama’s? Oh well……leftists always lie, leftists always project.
Regardless of how this gets worked out in the courts, every parent in America will wake up this morning having to deal with an issue they probably never thought they’d have to face several years ago. Parents now have to decide how they will deal with the reality that their child will not enjoy a basic level of privacy when they use a restroom or locker room when they go to school. Will this bring about a rise in private school attendance? Will it inspire more parents to home school their children? [By all rights, it should. I will not be surprised at all should Obama move against homeschooling before he leaves office, either.] Will states flirt with the idea of refusing federal education funds? [I think an honest reckoning might find that the costs imposed by the feds exceed the benefit received in tax monies back. Because that’s all it is, the feds don’t “give” anyone anything, they simply send a bit of the money taken in taxes back. Between Common Core, sodomite-“rights,” transgender activism, and all manner of progressive agitation, opting out seems an increasingly attractive option.]
Either way, if anyone wondered what President Obama meant when he promised to “fundamentally transform the United States of America,” now they know.
Indeed. And he is far from done. He’s going to go absolutely nuts this year. There is nothing to hold him back.
