American tax dollars that should, as military spending, be going to defend our nation, will not be siphoned off to pay for a mentally unstable person’s adventure as a member of the opposite sex. President Trump made it official on Wednesday, saying the US Government will not “accept or allow” transgender people to serve in the U.S. military, “in any capacity.”
President Trump made his statement on Twitter, posting, “After consultation with my generals and military experts, please be advised that the United States government will not accept or allow transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. military. Our military must be focused on decisive and overwhelming victory and cannot be burdened with the tremendous medical costs and disruption that transgender in the military would entail. Thank you.”
The Defense Department had already delayed allowing gender confused people to serve in June, with Defense Secretary Mattis announcing a six-month review beginning on July 1st to determine whether or not transgender people would be allowed to enlist. Apparently it wasn’t that close of a call, he needed less than a month.
The usual butt-hurt Democrat cockroaches crawled out to voice their exploitative, anti-American positions. Rep Ted Deutch (D-FL) tweeted, “Mr. President, transgender soldiers have been fighting and dying for our country IN OUR MILITARY. You should thank them for their service.”
That’s an interesting statement, one that he surely is making without any effort to determine if that is in fact the case. The likelihood is that few, if any, transgenders have died serving our country, at least not in an open, revealed state, since their percentage of the overall population is quite small and the policy permitting them to serve came into being under Obama last year. It had a one year evaluation period, which was extended for an additional six months on July 1st, less than a month ago.
In order to take Deutch’s advice and recognize the sacrifice of those “transgender soldiers” who fought and died in our military, perhaps he’d like to provided their names. Surely he, as a Democrat, would never make an unsubstantiated, reckless claim in order to curry political favor with a self-absorbed political subset.
Snaggle toothed and foul-mouthed DNC chairman, Tom “Jaws” Perez followed that same pandering, patronizing model, saying, “To the members of the transgender community: You are not a ‘burden.’ Do not let this president shake you. We support you, we stand with you.”
That’s great, Perez and the Democrats are going to support them. So they’ll be paying for the cost of their surgeries. He can’t afford to get his teeth aligned or filed down but he can throw his own money at their genitalia. What a guy, and what a party of humanitarians.
An activist group working to mainstream the perversion and saddle us with their expenses, the National Center for Transgender Equality, called President Trump’s decision an “egregious attack” against transgender service members. They claim there are about 15,000 transgender people currently enlisted in the U.S. armed services. Now that the military standards are being raised, they can go live their alternative reality on their own dime.
Transgender agitators called it worse than don’t ask don’t tell- this is don’t serve, don’t serve. – No, It’s “Don’t Spend, Don’t Pretend”
They issued a statement, saying, “This is worse than don’t ask don’t tell, this is don’t serve, don’t serve. This is an appalling attack on our service members; it is about bigotry rather than military readiness, reason or science. It is indefensible and cannot stand. The president wants to discard thousands of trained and skilled troops who are already serving honorably and done nothing but be honest about who they are. To turn away qualified recruits simply because of who they are is [most?] shameful way imaginable to show our country’s gratitude to the people who serve our country.”
It’s not a matter of gratitude, it’s a matter of readiness and those who supposedly want to serve using the military and the American taxpayers to manipulate frivolous medical expenditures on their behalf that they could never otherwise afford. That is what is truly shameful.
As if to provide emphasis, newly released espionage convict Bradley “get that thing off of me” Manning, said in a tweet, “So, biggest baddest most $$ military on earth cries about a few trans people but funds the F-35? Sounds like cowardice.”
No, it sounds like a return to fiscal responsibility and sanity, Manning, concepts we understand you might have trouble processing. As for cowardice, that may be something you know a thing or two about.
