On Tuesday, April 20, 2021, President Biden and his administration filed an appeal in federal court seeking to force all doctors and hospitals in the United States, regardless of religious conviction, to provide transgender surgeries to all patients who request such services.
If this doesn’t disturb you, then your heart is black and your soul is cold.
This is not just a story about the Democratic Party’s undeniable disdain for religion and its ongoing war against Judeo-Christian morality. It is not just another sad tale of the progressive left’s relentless attack on our Constitution and its enumerated First Amendment rights. No, this is not just another chapter in the ongoing saga of cultural elites presuming to push their moral nihilism on all of American society. There is another common theme here that is even more disturbing and sinister.
In case you missed it, here it is: Our nation’s political class, whose poster child at the moment is a man who thinks the word Psalms is a reference to a tropical tree, has a palpable disregard for people and for what it means to be a human being.
At its core, Mr. Biden’s attack on Christian doctors and Catholic hospitals is a story about the left’s hatred of people. It is a story about misogynists who deny women are real. It is a story about misandrists who declare all men to be toxic. It is a story about misopedists who seek to disavow children of their innocence and even take their lives. At rock bottom, this is a story about misanthropy: the general hatred, dislike and contempt of the human species, so much so, that you will deny the very definition of what it means to be a human being.
It is now an irrefutable fact. The Democrats and their socialist Squad hate humanity. They hate boys so much that they teach them it’s better to be a girl, and a little nip and tuck can make it so. They hate girls so much that they tell them they can no longer have their own showers, toilets and sports. They hate women so much that they deny the female is even a fact. They hate men so much that they declare masculinity to be a social disease.
In what world can anyone argue with a straight face that any of this is moral, right or humane?
How can you possibly believe in the dignity of children while at the same time applauding drag queen story hours?
How can anyone pretend to respect the value of every man when your default position on all that is wrong with the entire history of the world can be summed up in two words: “male toxicity”?
How in the world can you claim to believe that Black lives matter when you kill more Black babies in New York each year by aborting them than you celebrate Black babies by letting them be born?
We need to stop for a moment. Take a deep breath and ask a couple of questions.
If Mr. Biden and his political party support the humanity of women, then why do they tell us that women aren’t objectively human, that they are make-believe; social constructs rather than biological facts?
If Democrats actually believe in all men’s rights, then why do they parrot Critical Theorists who angrily teach that some men — particularly White ones — are irredeemably wrong?
If they are so worried about the future of humanity because of global warming, then why do they support policies aimed at reducing humanity (by as much as 90%!) in order to save humanity from global warming?
And if they are so heartbroken for children at our borders, why do they then support Planned Parenthood’s sale of a child’s heart for profit?
Do you see the disconnect? As rational beings, we are smarter than this. But our national brain trust seems to be brain-dead. We will never be a people of common sense if we persist in doubling down on this nonsense.
If the Biden cabal truly believes in human dignity, then maybe they should stop deconstructing human identity.
If they are really fighting for human rights, then maybe they should stop forcing doctors to dismember the human body.
Maybe these champions of science should stop denying science, and maybe in their march against hate, they should admit it’s nothing short of hateful to force Christian physicians to castrate little boys and Catholic hospitals to sexually mutilate adolescent girls.
But, hey, at least we don’t have to deal with all those mean tweets.
