24 GOP Vote to keep Transgender, sex assignment surgery in the military

Twenty-four Republicans banded together on Thursday to defeat an amendment which would have ended former President Barack Obama’s 2016 policy of funding “gender-reassignment” surgery for soldiers who want to live as members of the opposite sex.

The July 13 vote saw Democrats vote in lockstep to defeat the amendment, despite the national unpopularity of the transgender ideology. They were joined by 24 Republicans who broke with their party to assist the Democrats to defeat the amendment, without any visible objections by the GOP’s business-focused leadership.

Mustang gives us his thoughts today:

Obama’s Tranny Plan

Justin Amash is a US Congressman serving Michigan’s third district.  He is among the youngest members of serve in Congress and a first-generation Palestinian Arab of Greek Orthodox descent.  This probably explains why Congressman Amash opposes suspension of Barack Obama’s plan to destroy the US military … the plan to validate and accept transgender recruits into the Armed Forces, and offer to them life-time medical care for life.  This is exactly what we need in America: taxpayer funded hormone treatments, expensive surgeries, and lots of bed rest while normal people are in the field training for combat.

Let’s review: Obama’s Tranny Plan (OTP) is an ideology that holds that a person’s legal sex should be determined by their self-declared “gender identity,” not by their male or female body.  The ideology also says the federal government should force Americans to accept the “gender identity” claims made by each person, regardless of scientific data about genetics, biology and the variety of normal behavior and appearances shown by normal equal-and-complementary women and men.

The OTP also demands dignity and respect to transsexuals in community showers, and sleeping spaces.  This is fine —we can respect gender confused persons while they maintain their status as civilians— and then we do not have to worry about hurting their feelings while in a community shower.

One must ask, “What was Obama thinking?”

Well, if Obama was thinking at all, he was thinking about destroying the military.  One cannot have military readiness if priority spending is allocated to transgender social engineering at the expense of combat readiness.  A soldier will not risk his own life to save someone who he despises; units lacking esprit de corps fail in combat.  It only makes sense, then, that Secretary of Defense James Mattis has suspended Obama’s ludicrous plans while the Department of Defense reviews the short-term and long-term implications of OTP.

Rethinking OTP is not enough; they should be shelved entirely because, if implemented, the OTP will cost the American taxpayer more than $3.7 billion over ten years.  Meanwhile, American government is not addressing tens of thousands of homeless and starving Americans, military veterans are routinely denied proper medical care from combat-related wounds and injuries, social security recipients are denied sufficient increases in their annuities to maintain pace with the cost of living, and the government denies Medicare benefits to the elderly in order that we can take care of children of single parents.  One final thought: if the Pentagon ultimately approves OTP, it will inspire mutant-gender activists to place greater pressures on idiotic judges and spineless politicians to impose farcical rules on civic groups, schools, universities, and in the workplace.

This brings us back to Congressman Amash, a Republican.  Why is he supporting the Obama Tranny Plan?  The engine of a member of congress is fueled by popular opinion, and on this issue, polls indicate that a large majority of the American people reject the absurd progressive notion that a man can be a woman simply because he feels like one. Again, let’s evaluate Amash based on who he is and what he believes: he is Palestinian Arab.  Do Palestinian-Arab’s want to see the United States of America with a strong, efficient military?

I think not.
