Conservative pundit Ben Shapiro is joining other right-wing figures in delivering a very evenhanded response to a reported Obama administration directive on allowing “transgender students to use the bathrooms that match their gender identity” in public schools.
In a column titled “Obama Administration Declares Itself God-Baal, Redefines Reality By Targeting Children,” Shapiro makes a reference to the ancient deity Baal, identified as a false god in the Bible, and claims that this “evil,” “Obama-Baal” entity is “using children as a propaganda tool” in its “game to define reality.”
“God help us all,” he writes, “though why He should, at this juncture, remains unknown.”
Last year, the Supreme Court declared itself God by asserting that no decent morality would prevent government from subsidizing two people of the same sex forming a legal relationship to have sex with one another. Today, the Obama administration went even further, declaring in their Infinite Wisdom that Genesis 5:2 had been officially revoked: all schools in America, says the Obama administration, must now allow “transgender people” into the bathroom of their chosen gender identity, or face the loss of federal funding or the threat of lawsuit. If Billy wants to shower next to Jane, all he has to do is call himself a girl – and if you deny him his identity, you are a bigot who must be sued or fined by the feds.
The letter itself states, “A school may not require transgender students to use facilities inconsistent with their gender identity or to use individual-user facilities when other students are not required to do so.”
Secretary of the Department of Education John B. King Jr. issued a statement on the Obama-Baal redefinition of nature to fit leftist narratives:
No student should ever have to go through the experience of feeling unwelcome at school or on a college campus. 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.
This is Orwellian Newspeak. Young girls would presumably like to enjoy an environment free from discrimination, harassment and violence – and the same Obama administration proclaiming transgender bathrooms the law of the land says that young men must be taught not to enter into a “rape culture.” Yet if a boy says he’s a girl, we’re supposed to let him right on in to stare at the 15-year-old naked girls showering in the locker room, and to expose himself to them. The evil of using children as a propaganda tool is incredible, too. Why not begin with federal facilities? Because the left tries to use supposedly victimized transgender children to gin up sympathy, even if that means endangering young girls on a far more frequent basis. Kids are mere pawns in the game to define reality.
God help us all – though why He should, at this juncture, remains unknown.
