The degeneracy of western culture continues.
The Obama administration will issue a direct threat to each of the nation’s public school disctricts that refuse to allow boys into girls bathrooms (or vice versa) based on gender dysphoria, they must comply or lose federal funding according to this New York Times report published on 5/13.
A letter will go out Friday signed by Justice and Education department officials explaining how each district should handle transgender bathroom issues to ensure that students are not discriminated against.
In addition to the loss of federal aid, schools that do not comply with Obama’s interpretation of the law could face lawsuits among other setbacks.
The move is a disgusting attempt by the federal government, under President Obama, to overstep its boundaries and circumvent policies that have been enacted at the local level.
“No student should ever have to go through the experience of feeling unwelcome at school or on a college campus,” secretary of the Department of Education John B. King Jr said in a prepared statement. “We must ensure that our young people know that whoever they are or wherever they come from, they have the opportunity to get a great education in an environment free from discrimination, harassment and violence.”
The New York Times received a copy of the letter written by federal government agencies which states that a school “may not require transgender students to use facilites inconsistent with their gender identity or to use individual-user facilities when other students are not required to do so.”
Nowhere in the letter did the Justice Department mention that less than 1% of the population identify as transgender, nor did it address the issue of state sovereignty and the encroachment of the executive branch in community affairs.
Texas Lt. Dan Patrick responded in an interview with a local NBC affiliate, saying that President Obama issued an executive order on transgender policies “in the dark of night” without consulting Congress.
“President Obama, in the dark of the night – without consulting Congress, without consulting educators, without consulting parents – decides to issue an executive order, like this superintendent, forcing transgender politices on schools and on parents who clearly don’t want it,” he said.
Patrick went on to say that Obama’s new directive would be “the beginning of the end of the public school program as we know it.”
Governor Greg Abbot of Texas has already announced that his state will be fighting back in a Tweet posted late Monday evening:
The transgender distraction has intensified over the last several weeks with lawsuits being filed and threats of a Supreme Court hearing over the issue. One would think that the entire U.S. government would not bend over backwards for a minuscule portion of the general public but anything is possible under the dictatorial Obama administration.
