I’ve often said that the days between now and January 20, 2017 – when the next president is inaugurated – are the most dangerous in U.S. history. That’s because this is the final window of time President Obama has to fundamentally deform America. (He uses the word “transform” but let’s get real here.)
The latest evidence is that today the president is issuing an order, a directive, to all public schools in America to either endanger female students or else. He has issued a dictatorial decree that every school in America must let boys into girls’ shower rooms or else. If they don’t, they will face lawsuits or a withdrawal of federal funds.
The writer of the book of Revelation warns us of a coming time when the enemy of our souls will know his time is running out. “Woe to you, O earth and sea, for the devil has come down to you in great wrath, because he knows his time is short” (Revelation 12:12).” Am I saying Obama is the devil? Of course not. Am I saying he is doing the devil’s work? Absolutely.
Here’s how the New York Times puts it (emphasis mine):
WASHINGTON — The Obama administration is planning to issue a sweeping directive telling every public school district in the country to allow transgender students to use the bathrooms that match their gender identity.
A letter to school districts will go out Friday, adding to a highly charged debate over transgender rights in the middle of the administration’s legal fight with North Carolina over the issue. The declaration — signed by Justice and Education department officials — will describe what schools should do to ensure that none of their students are discriminated against.
It does not have the force of law, but it contains an implicit threat: Schools that do not abide by the Obama administration’s interpretation of the law could face lawsuits or a loss of federal aid.
The New York Times may not even have heard of Revelation 12:12, but they are fully aware of Obama’s agenda to do as much damage to America’s culture as he can on his way out the door. This directive, says the Times, “represents the latest example of the Obama administration using a combination of policies, lawsuits and public statements to change the civil rights landscape for gays, lesbians, bisexual and transgender people.”
The diktat makes it clear that absolutely no evidence will be required to demand that boys be allowed into the girls’ bathrooms:
As soon as a child’s parent or legal guardian asserts a gender identity for the student that “differs from previous representations or records,” the letter says, the child is to be treated accordingly — without any requirement for a medical diagnosis or birth certificate to be produced.
The statement that permission would only be granted once a parent or guardian makes the gender assertion isn’t worth the pixels it is printed on. That restriction won’t last a day. The first time a student complains to a principal that his transphobic parents won’t let him self-identify, the school will let the student use any shower room he wants to. Plus, they’ll probably report the parents to child protective services and get them charged with a hate crime to boot.
John King, the secretary of the Department of Education, said, “No student should ever have to go through the experience of feeling unwelcome at school or on a college campus.” That is, unless they are sexually normal, in which case they can be made to feel as unwelcome and uncomfortable as any sexually confused fellow student wants them to be.
The Times affirms that forcing schools to accept transvestism as normal is not just a goal of the Obama administration but a mission. It has “become a defining issue in the final year of Mr. Obama’s tenure.”
Mississippi state senator Chris McDaniel responded to Obama’s edict on his Facebook page this morning: “To he** with his order. We don’t work for him. Resist.”
And resistance is not futile. When North Carolina refused to meekly submit to Obama and his threats to withhold federal funds, Obama is the one who blinked, and withdrew the threat. The money continues to flow to North Carolina while the courts take up the issue.
And North Carolina Lt. Gov. Dan Forest told me on my program this week that even if Obama were to start withholding funds, North Carolina still would refuse to knuckle under to extortion. The state would simply reduce its budget, make sure that its citizens knew who exactly was to blame, and then go right on protecting the sexual privacy of little girls.
This is no time for the summer soldier and the sunshine patriot. The forces of homofascism are on the march, with our own president as their commander-in-chief. It’s time for every state and every school district in America to defy this tyrannical overreach of our new Overlord of Sexual Deviancy. Before it’s too late.
