• Federal fruitcakes threaten states over toilets for people with gender confusion.
By Ronald L. Ray —
Despite massive evidence that Hillary Diane Rodham Clinton violated the law and endangered national security using her private email server, the United States Department of Justice (DoJ) cannot seem to put together an indictment against her. But let the state of North Carolina pass a common-sense law requiring people to use only public restrooms appropriate to their biological sex, and the feds file a lawsuit within weeks, while threatening every school and college in the nation with loss of funding or additional lawsuits if they do not allow so-called transgender individuals to use the taxpayer-subsidized sports team, toilet, shower, or bedroom of their choice.
On March 23, the North Carolina legislature passed, and the governor signed, the Public Facilities Privacy & Security Act (H.B. 2), which took effect immediately and requires, among other things, that people use the public restroom that corresponds to the biological sex with which they were born.
The law responds to the city of Charlotte’s “dangerous” ordinance, as expressed by N.C. Senate President Phil Berger, that would have allowed “men into public bathrooms and locker rooms with young girls and women” and “created a loophole that any man with nefarious motives could use to prey on women and young children.”
According to the DoJ’s complaint, “Lieutenant Governor Dan Forest stated that the Charlotte Ordinance ‘would have given pedophiles, sex offenders, and perverts free rein to watch women, boys, and girls undress and use the bathroom.’” The legitimacy of this very realistic concern and compelling state interest is passed over in silence, however, by the DoJ and other proponents of unnatural vice.
In filing the lawsuit against North Carolina, the University of North Carolina, and various public officials, the DoJ relied on ideological assertions about sex and gender by the lesbian-gaybisexual-transgender-queer (LGBTQ) lobbyists and their shills in psychology and sociology. The feds also employed specious reasoning in claiming that North Carolina’s law allegedly violates various federal civil rights laws—necessitating a false reading of those statutes which flies in the face of the plain meaning of the words.
North Carolina responded with a lawsuit of its own, calling the federal action “a baseless and blatant overreach.” The suit further states that, “Transgender status is not a protected class” under the law. The state asserts that the Obama administration is circumventing Congress.
Moreover, a letter issued jointly on May 13 by the DoJ and U.S. Department of Education seeks to impose special privileges for the LGBTQ lobby on all schools receiving federal funding, promising a showdown with the vast majority of Americans and numerous state governments. A few, like Texas, have told the feds to “bring it on.”
Attorney General Loretta Elizabeth Lynch announced the legal action against H.B. 2 on May 9 in what was clearly a purely political speech. Having received their orders, the media myrmidons marched forth in lockstep to disseminate the corresponding propaganda, drawing parallels, as NBC put it, to “ending Jim Crow laws that enforced segregation [and] Brown v. Board of Education—which codified ending separate education for white and black students.”
Private corporations like Target, Barnes & Noble, and Starbucks have joined the war against the family by instituting “transgender” restrooms in their establishments, provoking massive popular backlash and boycotts.
The present incursion by jackbooted federal thugs into the most private areas of man’s life—the bedroom and the bathroom—is the latest front in the unending war by cultural Marxists against the family and civilization. The goal is not “equal rights,” but special privileges for a tiny minority, who comprise less than 3% of the population.
