The whole country ought to be breathing a sigh of relief at this undoing of another of Obama’s sneaky attempts at hamstringing the military one small, umm, cut at a time.
President Trump tweeted on Wednesday that “transgender individuals” should not be allowed to serve in “any capacity” in the US military.
“After consultation with my Generals and military experts, please be advised that the United States Government will not accept or allow …,” he wrote on Twitter.
“Transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. Military. Our military must be focused on decisive and overwhelming…”
He finished up by writing: “victory and cannot be burdened with the tremendous medical costs and disruption that transgender in the military would entail. Thank you.”
Needless to say, the Hitler comparisons and general hysterical hyperbole are flying thick and heavy on the deranged Left over this. Which as far as I’m concerned is an added benefit. As Bill says:
First, enjoy the sound of nuclear-level splody-heads among the usual suspects.
Second: Note that he’s not banning actual gays, (or bisexuals) only various forms of drag costuming. I’ve never thought that people who want to cut off their plumbing or put on dresses and wigs should be a civil rights issue in the first place.
Nope, it ain’t. It’s a mental health issue; “transgenderism” is a psychological disorder, yet another in a long list of non-issues that the Left has tried to use to further undermine and demoralize mainstream America, deploying the power of tyranny to force the hated Normals not just to tolerate and/or benignly ignore, but to wildly celebrate.
So-called “transgenders” are, put plainly, sick. There is absolutely no reason whatever to hand them rifles and stick them into the ranks, and plenty of reasons not to. Ordinary people not pimping a hate-America agenda know this full well; you can bet your life that the overwhelming majority of our much-put-upon soldiery does too. They also know full well who has supported them all through the years…and who has lined up at airports on their return home from every conflict in the last five or six decades to spit on and obscenely berate them.
