President Joe Biden’s top deputies joined with transgender activists on Wednesday to encourage children to claim they are suffering from anti-transgender discrimination.
“If you or someone you know is facing discrimination because you are transgender, we want to know,” said Kristen Clarke, the Assistant Attorney General for Civil Rights at the U.S. Department of Justice, said in the June 30 YouTube broadcast.
“You can file a complaint now … We see you, we hear you, and we will keep fighting for your inclusion, your dignity, and your equal rights under law,” said Clarke, who also suggested that the Supreme Court will back the children’s claim.
“We are on your side, we’ve got your back,” said Miguel Cardona, the Secretary of Education. He continued:
“We stand with you, we see you, we hear you. We respect you. You matter. You are brave. And you are already strong, standing in the light that emanates and you can be unapologetically and authentically you. Continue to be courageous by speaking up and speaking up when you believe that you have experienced discrimination.”
“You are so brave,” said Rachel Levine, a transgender man who is the Assistant Secretary for Health at the Department of Health and Human Services. “I want you to know your president has your backs … and I will do everything that I can to support and advocate for our community,” Levine added.
“This transgender convening comes across like an advertisement to young people that offers fame through activism,” responded Natasha Chart, a feminist who argues that women’s rights can only exist when they are based on the recognition that women are biologically different from men.
The White House’s message to young people, she said, is:
“The President of the United States and his advisors are lifting you up on this pedestal and calling you an activist and making this an important part of your identity — at a time when [young] people’s psyches are fragile because they’re in adolescence, and it’s a time of a lot of turmoil … They are encouraging these kids, ‘Come out as this, and someone will make you famous.’ ”
The little-publicized, online-only, 80-minute “Convening on Transgender Equality” showcased 21 speakers. They included several children, transgender activists, a few elected politicians, as well the cabinet secretaries, plus White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki and Susan Rice, the director of the United States Domestic Policy Council.
President Biden did not appear in the video….
The above comes from a July 2 story on Breitbart.com.
These young people need psychological intervention, not affirmation in their gender dysphoria. Sick grooming responses from the government will not help them.
Bye, bye America
Everyone knows that Applesauce Brains isn’t running things. He’s being managed.
It is a sin not to be able to these mentally ill people the help they need. What evil times we live in.
This man is so sick, and so is most of Biden’s administration. President Biden, if he really is, cannot string two sentences together, even with a teleprompter or it is written down, without getting confused or forgetting something. Who’s running the show?
To answer your question: Obama is running the show. He’s become the American version of Putin.
It figures. And “Vice” President Harris is incompetent and cackles every time she is going to tell another bare-faced lie. It would be quite a Comedy of Errors if it was not destroying the country. Most of her staff has quit and gone on to better things, whatever that is.
Maybe Putin will come and rescue us. At least he has not painted the Kremlin rainbow yet. Of course it will be a fight as to who gets us, Red China or Russia.
I strongly suspected that Obama was the power behind the Biden team during the campaign. Since the election, the feel of the Biden administration seems very similar to the Obama one. I think we can expect corruption at the FBI and the IRS.
To any sighted and sane observer, the photo accompanying this article shows an overweight man who desperately needs a haircut and who is wearing [for whatever reason] poorly chosen and unattractive women’s clothes. Something is askew. So badly askew that I could not entertain any opinion he offers.
Levin’s a real peach!
Will our next governor be trans?
Who beside Jenner has a chance of replacing Newsom?
Sam Gallucci next governor
But Biden is a faithful Catholic. Ha ha ha ha.
There were over 14,000 views when I looked at it. I don’t really want to give it an hour. It starts with Jen Psaki saying she is female and her pronouns are she, her and…I forgot.
So there are issues with “cisgendered” people naming their pronouns.
It can be taken as mockery.
It deserves mockery.
God loves ALL his children…God doesn’t pick and choose
Your point is ambiguous and needs clarification.
God loves his children and he also loves everything in Creation. But those people who go to Hell can not be called the Children of God.
According to the doctrine of predestination, God does choose some — the elect — for eternal salvation prior to foreseen merits; others are reprobate and therefore destined for eternal damnation through their own fault, not God’s. So God does pick and choose. And let me head you off: predestination is both Scriptural and part of Catholic faith. Do your research before you disagree. Start with Romans 8:28-30. Then study sufficient and efficacious grace. Also read St. Thomas Aquinas’ Summa Theologiae I.Q23.A1-7, especially Question 4 as it specifically states that God picks and chooses.
What we are not permitted to believe is that God creates souls to be damned.
God does not approve of “grooming” children, and this is what that man is doing. They are bringing children across the border without parents and have no idea if they were kidnapped or not. The children often disappear, and men like this are probably getting ahold of them.
God loves all people and all persons. He died so that our sins can be forgiven. In order to be forgiven, one has to repent. God loves you and gives you every opportunity to repent and He gives you the grace to repent. If you refuse His mercy, you encounter His justice.
Liberal leftists are extremely immature, and lack adult maturity and reasoning skills. They all think like two-year-olds. They do not understand that there is no such thing as “human rights” without morality and responsibility. No civilization can possibly survive without it. You have to grow up and be strong, with mature reasoning skills, and obey the ancient “Decalogue,” and Biblical Morality. And if you don’t– the Devil will take your soul– and “Sodom and Gomorrah” will burn and perish– with you in it. Christ called people to live right, by Truth– realistically, and objectively. He never gave anyone any illusions of false comforts, nor was He hard and cruel– He simply presented the Truth, “as is.” We live in a hard, painful, “fallen world” of sin, delusion, darkness, lies, and deceits– and we all must repent and be obedient to God. Face the work we must do, take up our “crosses” daily, walk in God’s grace, and get strong in virtue, get closer to God– hopefully, be transformed in Christ! And someday, we will receive our reward– in a glorious Eternal Life with God, in Heaven!
I was once with my young son and we passed a cell phone tower off in the near distance that was disguised as a tree. I asked him what that was. He said, “a tree.” I said, “no, it’s actually a cell phone tower disguised as a tree.” He had to think about it briefly before he accepted what I said.
Then I asked him what the difference is between the two. Cell towers, of course, are made of steel, emit radio singles, and don’t grow. Trees, on the other hand, are living beings that grow leaves and branches and reproduce.
People who undergo sex change operations are little different. Levine is a man who is only disguised as a woman.
Steve Seitz– Good post! Grown-ups often cannot distinguish reality from fiction– and if they do, some of them insist on lying about the truth.
What was that Sarah Palin quote??? “You can put lipstick on a pig — but it’s still a pig.” :)
here is an alternative viewpoint for you to consider.
I am not transgender. Perhaps you are or you are not. I do not know. If you are a transgender person who has decided to accept and live as your biological gender, I think that is wonderful. Many transgender people do.
Levine is not disguised as a woman. Levine is a transgender female. It is not a disguise. Transgender people feel like they are disguised when they dress as the biological sex that they were assigned at birth. It is a very rare condition with a lot of suffering that comes along with it.
It is not something that you should be trying to one-up with offensive descriptions.
It is not a challenge to your faith. It is not a threat to you.
As Catholics, we acknowledge that sex-reassignment (or to them, confirmation) surgery does not change a person’s biological gender.
I think we need some clarity:
People who are confused about their gender need psychotherapy to resolve their issue. People who have gender defective genes or hormones need medical therapy/surgery to resolve their issue.
On the other hand, modern transgender thinking states that you need to do pathological things to your body (surgery) to match your pathological psychology (gender confusion). This is madness and contrary to good medicine.
Levine is not a woman. Does she menstruate? Does she have XX chromosomes? Do here genes issue female-related instructions? The answer is ‘no’ because Levine is a man, but has been cosmetically altered to look like a woman.
To respond a little further, I’m not worried about what Catholicism says about this subject. However, I’m very concerned about what the cultural elites want us to say about it.
This issue is not only a threat to Catholicism, but it is a direct threat to rational civilization, truth, and freedom.
If you are a trans life survivor , there is help.
If you have transitioned and found that it really was not the answer, there is help.
I am not a transgender person but I see how the media only tells one side of the story. I understand that people who spent their childhood in pain want to help others but transitioning is not the answer for everyone.
“Had I not been misled by media stories of sex change “success” and by medical practitioners who said transitioning was the answer to my problems, I wouldn’t have suffered as I have. Genetics can’t be changed. Feelings, however, can and do change. Underlying issues often drive the desire to escape one’s life into another, and they need to be addressed before taking the radical step of transition.
You will hear the media say, “Regret is rare.” But they are not reading my inbox, which is full of messages from transgender individuals who want the life and body back that was taken from them by cross-sex hormones, surgery and living under a new identity.”
