The Trump administration on Tuesday took a major step to bar transgender troops from the U.S. military, kick-starting a constitutionally dubious "purge" with a new set of rules sure to continue its drawn out battle over the policy in federal courts.
The racist and deeply bigoted trump sought to gain political advantage from the “very good people” he lauded In Charlottesville, and who he sees as his base, by targeting the LGBT community among other vulnerable minority groups. Never in recent American history has such a pathological affront to all common decency and morality achieved the presidency to infect the nation and world with his mental illness, narcissism, and contempt for all others outside his circle of usury, greed and racist bigotry. His MO has been to tear down all the even somewhat/marginal good that has been accomplished for the 99% over time in our republic. The legacy of the few really progressive leaders and benefits that were won over time by the people, have now been largely destroyed, with more to come, from the corrupt, truly evil, and pathological donald j trump and his vulture capitalist regime of millionaires.and corruption.
We stand in solidarity with the LGBT community and the other “minority” groups and wider populace this regime targets to serve its agenda of greed and diversion of trillions from civilian priorities to serve the people to the war-machine, favored corporations, and the uber-wealthy! ENOUGH! This destructive, divisive, regime must be taken down, and that is “worth it” however it may be accomplished!
Good writing, and I completely agree with your assessment. It’s ridiculous that Trump keeps tripping us up and driving us back into the stone age of non inclusion. You need to be white and have swastika tattoo somewhere on your body in order for Trump to see you.
I think this is great. I think Transgender people, those whose gender identity and/or expression is incongruent with the gender assigned to them at birth, should be kept from serving in the military.
But let’s go all the way and also purge all Cisgender people, those whose gender identity and/or expression is congruent with the gender assigned to them at birth, from serving in the military too.
Agree. Purge LGTB and straight. Bring all the troops–and contractors–home. Close the hundred plus bases and secret prisons. Stop all the wars. Let them eat peaches and grow beans.
The article mentions people serving proudly. Ew. How can you serve proudly in a war?
