Welfare Colonists Demand Taxpayers Finance In Vitro Fertilization

Displacing the West’s population with Muslims from the Third World is an expensive prospect:

When a devout Muslim couple left Afghanistan to pursue Western life in Austria, the immigration board approved asylum status for them and their 9 children, aging from 5 to 20 years old. The pair soon claimed disability and began receiving $6,406.45 each month in welfare, according to Kronen Zeitung. Now, they’re planning on increasing their monthly benefits the best way they know how.

Austrian online newspaper The Local reports that the couple is requesting In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) treatment so that they can have at least one more child on the taxpayer dime. The woman, who is now 44 according to her identification documents, wants a larger family but is struggling to become pregnant at her age.

If their request is accepted, health services would pay up to 70 percent of the costs, including hospital stay, blood tests, sperm tests, ultrasounds, and various gynecological visits. The pair was informed that the woman’s age and physical state would limit the chance of success, but the couple wasn’t backing down from pursuing the expensive treatment.

Why are they so adamant, when they already have nine children? Because more kids means more benefits. The family’s work-free yearly salary already comes to $76,877.40. But when it comes to free money, how could there ever be enough?

Permit Required to Discuss Jesus on Campus

North Carolina State University is getting sued in federal court for a policy employed to gag Christians:

Grace Christian Life, a registered student group at NC State, filed suit over a policy requiring a permit for any kind of student speech or communication anywhere on campus – including religious speech.

In September 2015, the student group was told that without a permit, they must stop approaching other students inside the student union to engage in religious discussions or invite them to attend group events.

As usual with tyrannical restrictions, it is selectively enforced. The evident purpose of this one is to prevent evangelical Christians from proselytizing.

“The University has not restricted the ability of other students and student groups to engage in expressive activity,” the lawsuit states. “Grace has witnessed other students, student groups and off-campus groups handing out literature either without a permit or outside of the area reserved by their table permit.” …

NC State’s rules were so draconian that the Christians were not even allowed to step from behind their table in the student union.

“Colleges are supposed to be places where ideas are freely shared – not gagged,” Grace Christian Life President Hannalee Alrutz told [Todd Starnes]. “The only permit a student needs to speak on campus is the First Amendment.”

Considering that the university is funded by the government, you would certainly think so — except that the Constitution is also selectively enforced.

Atomic Word Salad

Now that we live in upside-down world, where the leading Republican candidate is a barking moonbat cut of Code Pink cloth, anything is possible — even Think Progress getting something right. They are on the mark when they suggest that before handing the Donald the launch codes, we watch him discuss how his nuclear deterrence policy applies to nuclear-armed, Islamic, and perennially unstable Pakistan:

A detailed analysis of Mr. Trump’s remarks:

It should be noted that Trump has recently encouraged nuclear proliferation in Asia. He has floated the possibility of using nuclear weapons in the Middle East, and even refused to rule out using them in Europe. He has also toyed with the idea of declaring war on China, which has a massive nuclear arsenal. He has named himself as his own primary foreign policy consultant, on the grounds that he has “a very good brain” and has “said a lot of things.” During his supposedly serious foreign policy speech yesterday, he doubled down on unpredictability as a centerpiece of his approach.

If #NeverTrump doesn’t make sense to you yet, you must have a really nice fallout shelter.

Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi Infiltrates Uber With Sex Offenders

One advantage of Big Government is that those who end up atop it have vast power to persecute the targets of their personal vendettas — as in the case of Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi, who indulged his dislike of Uber by having the city government enlist sex offenders as drivers:

This illustrates why politicians with conspicuously vindictive characters (e.g., Drumpf, Shrillary) must be kept from power.

Newspeak Dictionary Update: Justice-Involved Youth

As America is fundamentally transformed, updates to the Newspeak dictionary come fast and furious:

The Justice Department announced a plan to throw $1.75 million at young criminals in hopes that they don’t become adult criminals. But you’d never know that given the linguistic fog the DOJ has conjured up.

A press release issued earlier this week describes a new $1.75 million grant program as designed “to help young people involved in the justice system find jobs and housing.”

Wait, you ask, if these young people are “involved” in the justice system, doesn’t that mean they already have jobs? Like, say, as a trainee in the dispatcher’s office, or a desk clerk in the attorney general’s office, or maybe a janitor at the local courthouse?

There you see the confusion that can result from not keeping your Newspeak dictionary up to date. “Justice-involved youth” has replaced the more precise and therefore disfavored term “young criminal.”

Denmark May Impose Tax on Meat to Improve the Weather for Ethical Reasons

People who think of themselves as decent and nice justify their rejection of morality in favor of moonbattery by piously proclaiming allegiance to what they portray as a higher morality. Their alternate ethnics are not only degenerate but literally insane:

Denmark is considering proposals to introduce a tax on red meat, after a government think tank came to the conclusion that “climate change is an ethical problem”.

Don’t think about that sentence for too long. It could cause profound psychiatric damage.

The Danish Council of Ethics recommended an initial tax on beef, with a view to extending the regulation to all red meats in future. It said that in the long term, the tax should apply to all foods at varying levels depending on climate impact.

The council voted in favour of the measures by an overwhelming majority, and the proposal will now be put forward for consideration by the government.

The measure’s prospects are excellent. Anything that calls for more taxes as punishment for some unavoidable aspect of human existence — making things, heating/cooling homes, transport, eating, etc. — is sure to find widespread support and only meager opposition.

Not long ago it would have been acknowledged as obvious that anyone who thinks it is morally righteous to confiscate people’s money in the name of improving the weather by punishing them for eating belongs in a padded cell. Now these malevolent lunatics are in charge.

John Boehner Viciously Denounces Cruz, Embraces Trump

Trump never had any intention of fighting the RINO establishment. His goal has always been to hijack it for his own self-aggrandizing purposes. This has become all the more obvious now that the quintessential RINO establishmentarian John Boehner has effectively endorsed him:

“You can call me boner, beaner, jackass, happy to answer to almost anything,” said former Speaker of the House John Boehner as he took the stage at CEMEX Auditorium on Wednesday evening. Boehner joined David M. Kennedy, faculty director and history professor emeritus, in a talk hosted by Stanford in Government (SIG) and the Stanford Speakers Bureau.

Although jackass works, liberal, statist, and Obama collaborator would be more precise appellations.

Kennedy asked Boehner to be frank given that the event was not being broadcasted, and the former Speaker responded in kind. When specifically asked his opinions on Ted Cruz, Boehner made a face, drawing laughter from the crowd.

“Lucifer in the flesh,” the former speaker said. “I have Democrat friends and Republican friends. I get along with almost everyone, but I have never worked with a more miserable son of a b**** in my life.”

Boehner described other Republican candidates as friends. In particular, the former speaker said he has played golf with Donald Trump for years and that they were “texting buddies.”

Polishing his liberal establishment bona fides, Boehner proclaimed that he would vote for Trump in the general election but not Ted Cruz, the only conservative in the race. (Last month he said he would support his fellow liberal RINO Paul Ryan at a contested convention.)

Although unwilling to openly embrace their policies, he praised the communist Bernie Sanders as a nice guy and Shrillary as accomplished and smart, and confirmed that he gets along well with Obama.

It isn’t just Cruz; the dislike conservatives in general feel for Boehner is heartily returned:

Throughout the talk, Boehner frequently referenced the Freedom Caucus as the “knuckleheads” and “goofballs” in Congress.

On behalf of conservatives, Cruz responds:

The cruel irony is that some who have not been paying attention or who are not thinking clearly actually believe they are somehow rebelling against Boehner et al. by supporting Trump against establishment nemesis Ted Cruz.

Hate Hoax Graffiti at Maryland’s Salisbury University

Hate crime or hoax, what do you think?

salisbury hoax

You are correct:

The students identified as the people behind a recent racist drawing found at Salisbury University’s library are black, school officials confirmed Tuesday.

The image, found April 10 on a whiteboard in Blackwell Library, showed a stick figure being hung and labeled with a racial slur. Underneath was the hashtag “#whitepower.”

The problem with staging hate hoaxes is that authorities take thought crimes so seriously that the police are brought in — and police are quite good at seeing through ineptly staged crime scenes.

Since white racists are not to blame, it should come as no surprise that no criminal charges are being filed. The culprits’ names are not even being released, which is a shame, because I would like to add them to the Hate Hoax List.

Here’s an interesting coincidence:

The scandal broke immediately after the school’s “Stop Hatin” week, an event led by the university’s student government to promote diversity and acceptance on campus and “break down the barriers that often arise through stereotypes and unrealistic perceptions,” according to a Facebook event page cited by The Flyer [link].

Nonetheless, defenders of the hoaxers have tried to pass off this deceptive political tactic as a bad joke. The first rule of political correctness is that the “oppressed” can do no serious wrong.

Trump and the GOP’s Future

Trump and his supporters have already cost us this previously winnable election. The question now is how far the damage will extend into the future:

According to fresh data from the Harvard Institute of Politics’ semi-annual study of young voters, 61 percent of young voters say they’d prefer Democrats hold the White House, against just 33 percent for Republicans, a 28-point advantage. And when Clinton is pitted against Trump by name, her lead widens to 36 points.

That is worse that McCain did with the under-30 crowd against Obama in 2008, despite all the hype promoting Obama and all the dislike for Shrillary.

Republicans who have talked themselves into the prospect of a Trump nomination on the grounds that Trump will run up the score with older, working-class white voters are playing with mathematical fire. In 2012, Mitt Romney won voters over the age of 30, but lost the under-30 demographic by such a large margin that he lost the White House. Facing youth vote numbers like these, Trump will have to win extraordinary numbers of middle-age and senior voters to have a fighting chance.

Those numbers will of course never materialize, considering that a large percentage of Republicans of all ages will refuse to vote for the quasi-fascist lowlife under any circumstances out of basic decency.

Trump’s weakness with the young isn’t just a product of his terrible standing with young Latinos or African-Americans, or the way that he has turned off young independents. Yes, Trump doesn’t even get out of single digits with nonwhite young voters, winning a pathetic 5 percent of black and 9 percent of young Hispanic voters. But strikingly, Trump also tanks with slices of the youth vote that ought to be friendlier to him.

Mitt Romney won young white voters in the 2012 election; Trump loses this group to Clinton. He also picks up only 29 percent of young men, with 47 percent saying they’d pick Clinton. A majority — 57 percent — of young Republicans hold an unfavorable view of their own presumptive nominee. …

The Republican Party is already two bad elections deep with a large slice of the millennial generation. And that group of voters will ripple through elections for decades like the young FDR Democrats and young Reagan Republicans, casting ballots for the party that was in their favor when they first entered the political process.

To mitigate the damage, Trump must be stopped from getting the nomination at all costs, so that the GOP can divorce itself from him as quickly as possible before an association with someone most young people rightly dislike does not become cemented in their minds for many elections to come.

Christian Bakers Forced to Undergo Reeducation

A favorite tactic in the War on Christianity is to force Christians to betray their beliefs. Already this practice has reached extremes of tyranny that most never thought they would see in America. From You Will Be Made to Care, via the Resurgent:

For years [Jack Phillips of Masterpiece Cakeshop in Lakewood, Colorado] served both gay and straight customers equally. But when a gay couple insisted that Phillips bake a custom wedding cake for them in 2012, he declined.

Incidentally, same-sex unions were illegal in Colorado at the time.

According to an administrative law judge who reviewed the case, “Phillips believes that decorating cakes is a form of art, that he can honor God through his artistic talents, and that he would displease God by creating cakes for same-sex marriages.”

And get this: Phillips offered to sell the couple a cake he had already made that they could then customize as they desired. They refused, insisting that he be made to decorate it for them.

There would be no point to the bullying if Phillips were not made to feel he was betraying God.

Phillips made his faith priorities clear: “I’m a man who is devoted to following Jesus Christ. He’s the one that’s in charge of all this…. It’s not up to the courts to decide what marriage is. It’s up to God to decide that. If we are living in obedience to Jesus Christ and the teachings of the Bible we are on the right side of history—no matter what they say.”

That is why people like Phillips have to be crushed. This isn’t about perverted sexual relationships, far less “discrimination” against those who showily engage in them. It is about eradicating the concept of a higher authority than Big Government.

On August 13, 2015, a Colorado State Court of Appeals ruled Phillips must make cakes for gay weddings if he is to make any cakes at all.

That’s not all. The Strident Conservative notes that the Orwellian “Colorado Civil Rights Commission” inflicted the following:

The commission directed Phillips to immediately change his store policies, submit his staff to mandatory sensitivity training [including, apparently, his 88-year-old mother] and submit quarterly reports to the commission confirming that he had not refused service to customers based on their sexual orientation.

The intent was not merely to punish but to humiliate.

Barked Commission Chairwoman Katina Banks:

“Religious freedom is undoubtedly an important American value, but so is the right to be treated equally under the law — free from discrimination.”

The Founding Fathers never got around to enshrining in the Constitution the supposed right to force people to decorate cakes against their will. Religious freedom, however, really is a right (not a “value”), as acknowledged in the First Amendment.

Banks isn’t the only idiot involved in the case who shouldn’t be. Monica Marquiz, one of the justices who voted not to hear the appeal, was the Colorado GLBT Bar Association’s 2009 Outstanding GLBT Attorney Award winner.

Conflict of interest anyone?

LGBT bullies have a conspicuous tendency to be vile almost beyond belief, but they are only a cat’s paw, not the real problem. They are being exploited by people whose objectives go far beyond sick sex and cakes.

We Know How to Fix Poverty, as Kansas Reminds Us

We can dramatically reduce poverty if we want to. We know how, as Kansas reminds us:

Over the past several years, the number of Americans on food stamps has soared. In particular, since 2009, the number of “able-bodied-adults” without dependents receiving food stamps more than doubled nationally. Part of this increase is due to a federal rule that allowed states to waive food stamps’ modest work requirement. However, states such as Kansas and Maine chose to reinstate work requirements. Comparing and contrasting the two approaches provides powerful new evidence about the effectiveness of work.

According to a report from the Foundation for Government Accountability, before Kansas instituted a work requirement, 93 percent of food stamp recipients were in poverty, with 84 percent in severe poverty. Few of the food stamp recipients claimed any income. Only 21 percent were working at all, and two-fifths of those working were working fewer than 20 hours per week.

Once work requirements were established, thousands of food stamp recipients moved into the workforce, promoting income gains and a decrease in poverty. Forty percent of the individuals who left the food stamp ranks found employment within three months, and about 60 percent found employment within a year. They saw an average income increase of 127 percent. Half of those who left the rolls and are working have earnings above the poverty level. Even many of those who stayed on food stamps saw their income increase significantly.

The poor aren’t the only beneficiaries. Taxpayers make out well also:

Furthermore, with the implementation of the work requirement in Kansas, the caseload dropped by 75 percent. Previously, Kansas was spending $5.5 million per month on food stamp benefits for able-bodied adults; it now spends $1.2 million.

Even with the sluggish economy under Obama’s tax-and-regulate regime, people can find work when motivated — as our problem with excessive immigration attests.

According to a Heritage Foundation survey, Americans overwhelmingly agree that able-bodied adults receiving welfare should work. However, very few of the federal government’s 80 means-tested welfare programs require recipients to work for benefits.

That is because the purpose of federal welfare programs is to increase poverty by subsidizing it. The more people live in poverty, and the more dependent they are on Washington, the more powerful the government. Consequently, you will never see the welfare reform work requirements that were illicitly lifted by Obama reinstated by authoritarian statists like Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump, or Bernie Sanders.

Radically reducing poverty is the easy part. First comes the more difficult task: radically reducing Big Government.

As It Dies of Socialism, Venezuela Goes to 2-Day Workweek

No wonder layabouts love Bernie Sanders. More socialism means less work. Socialist Venezuela has just gone to a 2-day workweek:

Venezuela has introduced a new concept to the workplace calendar: the five-day weekend.

President Nicolás Maduro will furlough the country’s public employees — who account for a third of the labor force — for the bulk of the week, so they can sit through rolling blackouts at home rather than in the office.

Unfortunately, everyone else has to keep on working in the dark in order to support the government workers as they loaf at home instead of at their offices.

No worries; as Lenin taught, socialism is only a transitory stage leading to communism. Once communism has been imposed, everyone will work for the government, so presumably everyone will get extended weekends. By then there will probably be no power at all, so weekends will last 7 days. Slackers rejoice!

Why the blackouts, when Venezuela has the world’s largest proven oil reserves? Pointy-headed masterminds determined it would be best to rely on hydroelectric power while exporting the oil. Like other forms of renewable energy (i.e., solar, wind), it only works when conditions are right. There hasn’t been enough rain in Venezuela due to El Niño, so there hasn’t been enough power.

This is a foreseen catastrophe. [Maduro’s predecessor Hugo] Chávez, too, went through a similar crisis during the last El Niño cycle, in 2009-2010.

“Rainfall is not the main culprit,” said Venezuelan economist Francisco Monaldi at Rice University’s Baker Institute for Public Policy. Years of mismanagement, under-investment and a failure to learn from the past have taken their toll.

A free market would quickly solve the problem, as the laws of economics would compel private interests to effectively exploit the most efficient and reliable energy sources. But of course free markets lead to income inequality — an inevitable consequence of liberty that is anathema to the sort of moonbats who are in power in Venezuela and who have been steadily gathering support in America too.

Venezuela’s economy is projected to contract 8 percent this year, with inflation running at 720 percent, according to the International Monetary Fund.

If we continue down the same road as Venezuela, we will end up at the same place: in the dark.

Study Finds Carbon Emissions Are Making Earth Greener

If progressive ideology were correct, rising carbon dioxide levels could be thanked for the improving climate. However, progressive ideology is bunkum. But CO2 does get credit for helping plants to grow:

Rising carbon dioxide (CO2) levels are causing an explosion in plant growth, according to a huge scientific study published Monday in the journal Nature Climate Change.

The study is the largest of its kind and was written by 32 scientists from 24 colleges and universities in eight countries. It used three long-term satellite records of plant area and 10 different global ecosystem models to measure increasing plant growth.

“We were able to tie the greening largely to the fertilizing effect of rising atmospheric CO2 concentration by tasking several computer models to mimic plant growth observed in the satellite data,” Ranga Myneni, one of the study’s co-authors who is a professor at Boston University, said in a press statement.

The study estimates roughly half of Earth’s land-mass showed “significant greening” and only 4 percent of the world saw a decrease in plant life. …

High carbon dioxide levels cause plant life to thrive, particularly in arid regions where carbon emissions are causing deserts to bloom with foliage.

This isn’t the first study to acknowledge the positive effect of rising CO2 emissions.

“Carbon dioxide fertilizes plants, and emissions from fossil fuels have already had a hugely beneficial effect on crops, increasing yields by at least 10-15%,” concludes a report published last October by the U.K.-based Global Warming Policy Foundation, an organization primarily focused on countering policy endeavors of global warming activists. The report estimates the global CO2 fertilization effect on the world’s crops is worth roughly $140 billion a year.

Just as more warmth means more life, more plant growth means more food for people and animals alike. Do your part for the earth and all the living things upon it; expand your carbon footprint.

Brent Bozell III Calls on Sellouts to Retract Trump Endorsements

Looks like Trumpbart wants to survive this debacle with some credibility intact. The aggressively Donald-friendly site has mitigated its idol worship by publishing an open letter to prominent Trump chumps from voice of reason Brent Bozell III:

Trump not only supported but bankrolled amnesty. He supported taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood. He supported not just abortion but partial-birth abortion. He was open to gay marriage. He supported government-funded universal healthcare.

He supported eminent domain for (his) private gain. He supported the Wall Street bailout. He supported “assault weapons” bans. He applauded President Obama for doing a “great job.” He congratulated Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for doing a “good job.” He financially helped the Democrats pass Obamacare. Trump was a registered Democrat when that party was being led by the likes of Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV), donating heavily during President Obama’s tenure. He’s bankrolled Democrats like Jimmy Carter, Rahm Emmanuel, Anthony Weiner, Terry McAuliffe, Chuck Schumer, Charlie Rangel, Ted Kennedy and John Kerry, to name a few.

But Trump said he’s changed. On everything. Overnight. Just in time for the GOP nomination fight.

Really?

Let’s look at Mr. Trump’s record during this campaign. He’s declared his support for single-payer healthcare. That puts him to the left of Obamacare. He’s re-declared his support for Planned Parenthood. He’s re-supporting tax increases. He’s supported crony capitalism. He’s endorsed “touchback” amnesty. He wants the U.S. to break the Geneva Convention. He’s “neutral” on Israel and Palestine. He wants South Korea and Japan to have nuclear arsenals.

Paul Krugman loves Trump’s big government economic plan for the simple reason that big government will remain under President Trump.

Two weeks ago, Mr. Trump took the left’s side in the North Carolina transgender bathroom controversy.

Last week Mr. Trump announced—guess what?—he’s not just pro-abortion, he wants the pro-life plank in the GOP platform removed, thus divorcing the Republican Party from the pro-life movement.

Say Shrillary is abruptly sidelined by health issues, or Obama develops a conscience and lets the Justice Department prosecute her for her crimes. Donald Trump could actually become president. What will his conservative supporters do then?

When it comes time to nominate a new Supreme Court Justice, and President Trump names his radically pro-abortion sister, as he’s suggested he would, or some other radically pro-abortion pro-Planned Parenthood jurist, as we know he will, will you accept that you helped him do that?

When President Trump shocks the civilized world by killing the children of terrorists, arming nations with nuclear weapons (you don’t think Russia won’t do likewise with its allies?) and breaking the Geneva Convention (God help our men and women captured by our enemies who will do the same) will you live with that?

When Big Government, crony capitalism — the corruption of government that triggered his movement — continue unabated for the simple reason he’s offered no plan to stop it, will you accept the blame for having supported it?

Stop crony capitalism? Trump is the personification of crony capitalism.

This isn’t about purity. It’s about basic sanity.

Bozell calls on sellouts Sarah Palin, Ben Carson, Mike Huckabee, and Phyllis Schlafly to retract their endorsements. Too late now; other conservatives will never take them even half-seriously again, no matter what they say at this point.

But it is not too late for the rest of the country.

Sports Organizations Punished for Not Reaching Racial Targets in South Africa

Affirmative Action is an outrageous injustice for those who are denied opportunities as a result of belonging to the politically disfavored white race. At least we can take solace that there is no need for Affirmative Action in sports, and that when progressives achieve their Holy Grail of a white minority population, we won’t need it at all — right?

Just to confirm, let’s check in on South Africa, the land where political correctness has prevailed, placing all power in the hands of the “oppressed.” Fikile Mbalula is the Minister of Sport and Recreation. Here he responds to a recent report on the transformation (i.e., de-white-ification) of sports:

Today I am pleased and delighted to receive the results of the third Eminent Persons Group (EPG) on Transformation in Sport Report for 2014/2015. …

You will recall, ladies and gentlemen, that the transformation status report referred to above covered Athletics South Africa, Cricket South Africa, South African Football Association, Netball South Africa and South African Rugby Union.

These ‘big five’ federations provided the EPG Secretariat with information and data that was analysed and thus enabling the EPG to interpret the data in line with our multi-dimensional scorecard embedded in our transformation charter.

Four of these federations have failed to meet their “transformation targets,” which apparently means there are still too many white people on the teams. Consequently,

I have therefore resolved to revoke the privilege of Athletics South Africa (ASA), Cricket South Africa (CSA), Netball South Africa (NSA) and South African Rugby (SARU) to host and bid for major and mega international tournaments in the Republic of South Africa as a consequence of the aforementioned federation, not meeting their own set transformation targets with immediate effect.

South African Football Association met the racial quotas, but still gets slapped with a “Ministerial directive” for social engineering shortcomings.

More supposedly self-imposed quotas will follow:

I am directing all federations and sport bodies to establish transformation committees and appoint transformation officers as cricket and rugby has [sic] done. These structures must be mainstreamed and be integrated in all business units of the federations and sport bodies. …

I believe that given the political will and support from Government at all spheres and the South African Sport Confederation and Olympic Committee (SASCOC), we will achieve an accessible, adequately funded, demographically representative and equitable, democratic and non-racial sporting landscape.

By now you know what “non-racial” means. It means that if do not belong to the correct race, your efforts are wasted.

Moonbat Parents Try to Impose Transgenderism on Whole Kindergarten

To create a transgender trophy child, liberal parents are advised to start the brainwashing early, before natural tendencies can take root:

Parents of a 5-year-old “transgender child” have filed a complaint against a St. Paul charter school, alleging it failed to protect him from bullying and refused to teach all the students their preferred transgender-awareness curriculum.

As usual these days, it is the people yelping about the horrors of bullying who are doing the bullying.

David and Hannah Edwards, whose child was born a boy but now thinks he’s a girl, has filed with the city’s Department of Human Rights, claiming their child “wasn’t able to take full advantage of Nova [Classical Academy]’s educational opportunities because of her gender identity and expression. This violated her rights.”

They call their 5-year-old son “her.” I wonder where Junior got the idea he is a girl.

Too bad they weren’t slightly less insane; they might have raised him to think he is a tiger. Think of the fun he could have had, roaring and chasing the other kindergartners around the playground. Instead they are turning him into a freak normal kids will naturally feel revulsion toward, no matter how much authorities punish them for expressing it.

When the boy showed up at school wearing pink tennis shoes and wanting to wear a jumper like the girls in gym class, other children reportedly pointed and laughed at him. The parents contacted the school and wanted something done to protect their child from bullying, despite the fact that the school currently has an anti-bullying policy.

No policy will prevent kids from being kids.

The Edwardses, however, wanted more—for the school to teach only their views of human sexuality and to be engaged in helping their five-year-old boy transition to a girl.

Brainwashing their own kid wasn’t enough. Everyone’s children must be conditioned to embrace the abnormal.

The issue became public when the Edwards demanded the school present transgender materials and information to their child’s classmates. “Key components included a letter to be sent home to kindergarten families notifying them of the transition; use of the book ‘I Am Jazz’ in each kindergarten classroom; and communications for any families who asked about opting out of the classroom education, to direct them to equivalent content and to outline behavior expectations,” the complaint states.

School officials were fine with this, and even considered adding another sick gender bender book, “My Princess Boy.”

However, parents sometimes place their children’s well-being ahead of progressive ideology.

[S]chool officials changed their minds after backlash from parents who didn’t want transgenderism taught at such a young age. … As a result, the school chose to enforce its anti-bulling policy and not conduct gender re-education.

A light is starting to come on in people’s heads:

“We’re learning that this is really a political agenda here and it isn’t just about the bullying of a child,” Paula Rothstein, the parent of two children at Nova, told KSTP.

What it’s about is the bullying of a whole culture as it is forcibly twisted into something disgusting in the service of an ideology that would make the Devil lose his lunch.

As a result of encountering minimal resistance from a society bludgeoned into meek compliance by political correctness, the LGBT “community” is pushing its unholy agenda to ever more horrific extremes:

To encourage transition at young ages, transgender websites have started selling products for children and teens to help them embrace their perceived gender identity. These include tiny dildos young girls can strap on to emulate having a real penis. The company Tranzwear offers custom-made “cyberskin packers,” “created to be worn comfortably” for “a more realistic look and feel.”

The social engineers have managed to fundamentally transform a girl named Levi Takoda into a parody of a boy. Here she reviews special underpants that hold dildos to enhance the bizarre delusion that she can change to the opposite sex:

The girl above has been deformed chemically using testosterone.

The American College of Pediatricians issued a report urging “educators and legislators to reject all policies that condition children to accept as normal a life of chemical and surgical impersonation of the opposite sex. Facts – not ideology – determine reality.” …

“Puberty is not a disease and puberty-blocking hormones can be dangerous,” the report states. “Reversible or not, puberty-blocking hormones induce a state of disease – the absence of puberty – and inhibit growth and fertility in a previously biologically healthy child.” In other words, to treat children in this way is “to do harm,” something neither parents nor doctors should ever do.

Using puberty blockers to prevent children from becoming what they are requires the use of cross-sex hormones, which have been associated not only with the inevitable psychiatric issues but also with high blood pressure, blood clots, stroke, and cancer. Also,

Rates of suicide are twenty times greater among adults who use cross-sex hormones and undergo sex reassignment surgery, even in Sweden which is among the most LGBQT – affirming countries.

However, parents must act decisively if they want to be sure their children go through with the transformation:

According to the DSM-V, as many as ‘98% of gender confused boys and 88% of gender confused girls eventually accept their biological sex after naturally passing through puberty.’

Most likely this will be scrubbed from future versions of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, just as the manual no longer acknowledges homosexuality to be a disease. The DSM is produced by the American Psychiatric Association, and leftist politics tends to prevail among the big associations.

At least the ACP is still standing firm for children, health, decency, and sanity:

Those who are “helping” children become the sex they imagine themselves to be are engaging in child abuse. This is a point the American College of Pediatricians firmly makes: “Conditioning children into believing that a lifetime of chemical and surgical impersonation of the opposite sex is normal and healthful is child abuse.”

“Endorsing gender discordance as normal via public education and legal policies will confuse children and parents, leading more children to present to ‘gender clinics’ where they will be given puberty-blocking drugs,” the report says. “This, in turn, virtually ensures that they will ‘choose’ a lifetime of carcinogenic and otherwise toxic cross-sex hormones, and likely consider unnecessary surgical mutilation of their healthy body parts as young adults.”

If child cruelty laws don’t cover these sick outrages, we need new laws.

To get such laws, we will have to elect politicians with the character to stand up to political correctness. This does not mean boors who call female journalists “bimbos” and Mexicans “rapists,” but who then advocate letting male perverts using women’s bathrooms; it means decent people at the very least, and ideally principled conservatives.
