The Latest Target for Right Wing Lunatics and Bigots

Transgendered kids.

Transgender women and girls couldn’t play on girls’ and women’s school sports teams under a bill passed by a Florida House committee on Wednesday.

Where is the flood of transgendered girls seeking to play sports? I'll spare you the hunt: There isn't any. There were two kids in Connecticut, but that is it. But because of those two kids, lawmakers across the Bigotry Belt are rushing to pass laws, even though there hasn't been a single case of a transgendered kid going out for sports in their states.

But this is what Republicans do: They invent problems and then enact laws to "correct" their non-existent problems. Widespread votor fraud. Doesn't exist, but Republicans are busily enacting laws to make it harder to vote. Same thing with transgendered kids.

Sorry, folks, but if you identify as a Republican, you have signed on to a political party that operates on the corrosive fluids of bigotry and hate.

The Almighty forbid that Republicans actually do something to help anyone other than big corporations and rich people.

The whole party runs on fear, and that seemed like an easy fear to stoke.

The GOP doesn't have any real policy positions left anymore. COVID killed off Austerity, their only actual economic policy, which is just about making the rich richer. The rest is all Culture War shit.

The Dems really are not much better. It is only the Left Wing of the party that provides them with any real working policy, which the party establishment does its best to water down while touting 'diversity', their version of Culture War.

Tod Germanica said...

Well, Nebris, Joe Biden is certainly not in the left wing of the Democratic party. And Biden's push to get vaccine shots for all and to provide economic relief for the needy during the pandemic crisis constitutes correct and effective policy to me. Especially compared to trump's criminal and deadly abnegation of all responsibility. And Biden has not been just touting 'diversity' (or as I like to call it, diversity) but also displaying it in his cabinet picks. Or do we just need more white men in all positions like trump appointed?

“As for the Republicans -- how can one regard seriously a frightened, greedy, nostalgic huddle of tradesmen and lucky idlers who shut their eyes to history and science, steel their emotions against decent human sympathy, cling to sordid and provincial ideals exalting sheer acquisitiveness and condoning artificial hardship for the non-materially-shrewd, dwell smugly and sentimentally in a distorted dream-cosmos of outmoded phrases and principles and attitudes based on the bygone agricultural-handicraft world, and revel in (consciously or unconsciously) mendacious assumptions (such as the notion that real liberty is synonymous with the single detail of unrestricted economic license or that a rational planning of resource-distribution would contravene some vague and mystical 'American heritage'...) utterly contrary to fact and without the slightest foundation in human experience? Intellectually, the Republican idea deserves the tolerance and respect one gives to the dead.”

From the other point of view, they fear it will be used as a wedge (like most Leftist causes) in the future.

It is how the Left works. Look at history.

Tod Germanica said...

Yet Lovecraft was a monstrous racist.

Yes, B, Democrats are sneakily using good policy as a gateway drug toward economic prosperity, pandemic defeat, justice and resistance to our Kremlin overlords. While the Q-trumpers and Moscow Mitch and pals remain treasonous obstructions. And all you Republic party members should follow the 100% of your elected Republic party officials who voted to deny you any money and mail back your check. Follow your convictions and return the money. Unless you're a hypocrite.

On topic, with out injection from Quidiot...

From the news. A transboy (female to male) is being forced to
wrestle on the girls team... because genetics born girl must use
girls room and play with girls. Save for he is on hormones (T)
and lives as male/man otherwise. The Testosterone is considered
medical need so he has a massive advantage over all the league
competitors and its all legal. Some of the competitors will
not go to the mat and throw in the towel. He wants to wrestle
on the boys team. Seems a few of them don't want to appear
they may have been beaten by a girl.

I will not entertain or go into genetic arguments. Its pointless
and you have no dog in the fight.

This is how that stupidity works. It comes from being afraid of
transwomen (men) in the girls room and the people fostering it
have no clue or even acknowledge there is others like women
born women that are men.

How do I know.. I have a nephew (former niece) that is
transitioning from female to male. He had to get clean
before they the medical cadre would consider it, so it was
for all a far better thing.

B, I totally believe you. And bless your little pea-picking heart.

B, why is fear of transgendered people legitimate?

Nebris said...

@Tod Germanica After Trump, the bar for Basic Administrative Competence was set so low my cats could jump over it. *looks at all the sleeping cats sprawled on his bed* And probably around 3am. 😺😺😺

I added a third paragraph to the above comment elsewhere; "In the fight over the nomination of Neera Tanden, a woman of East Indian descent, the Dem Establishment framed opposition to her as ‘sexist’ and ‘racist’ while ignoring that she is a hostile and divisive union busting Corporatist." That's Culture War over real Policy...plus a political payoff to a Clinton operative.

Tod Germanica said...

Nebris
We're not disagreeing by much here. I always considered Biden a corporatist centrist and I wanted Warren, so I was happily surprised by his new LBJ mode. Maybe he learned from Obama's unhappy experience with GOP obstruction. Compromise is not possible when the GOP always acts in bad faith. They are a corrupt party bought and paid for by oligarchs and Russians. A turncoat party out for the money.

B,

"From the other point of view, they fear it will be used as a wedge (like most Leftist causes) in the future."

You are going to have to explain your ravings. How is observing people
have rights a potential wedge? Or do you mean "other people have rights"
as in somehow more rights than "us".

"It is how the Left works. Look at history."

Seems the right have been doing that for a while. Or is every day with
the RQP opposite day? That being when they say left it is really their
projection of themselves or what they have done.

Eck!
