The Real ‘Epidemic of Violence’ in America?

For Biden, the murder of those who identified as “transgender” is a loud dog whistle.

Recently, we covered how USA Today, a leading Leftmedia propaganda organ of the socialist Democrat Party, featured Joe Biden’s Secretary of Health and Human Services Rachel Levine, formerly Richard Levine, on its short list of actualWomen of the Year.”

Last week, as we noted regarding Biden’s “International Transgender Day of Visibility,” he issued a national statement and proclamation affirming all the ways his administration is advancing gender confusion. In gratitude for Biden’s proclamation, Secretary Levine said, “It is so wonderful that we have a president, President Biden, who supports us, who advocates for us and who sees us.”

The Demos’ “gender identity” agenda is just one chapter from their identity politics playbook, but it is a close second to their racist obsession with race in their collective constituency strategy.

Why so much emphasis on redefining gender?

At its core, the gender devolution agenda is designed to undermine the foundational pillars of American Libertymarriage, family, and faith. Weakening those pillars strengthens dependence on the state, the source of the Demos’ political power.

Currently, there is additional emphasis on the so-called “transgender” agenda, the lie that anyone can change genders (just follow the science), because of Florida’s parental rights legislation prohibiting “classroom instruction … on sexual orientation or gender identity” for children in kindergarten through third grade — what amounts to gender-confused grooming of children. The Rainbow Mafia is targeting Florida because that state’s legislation will be the model for other states, and because Gov. Ron DeSantis is a likely presidential contender.

Circling back for the rest of the story on Biden’s “Transgender Day” charade, he proclaimed a few things that were so egregiously errant that every MSM “fact-checker” should have been calling him out but, of course, didn’t.

Obviously, they were not going to call into question Biden’s colossal canard about those denying their God-given gender: “I want you to know that your president sees you … for who you are: made in the image of God.”

Biden insisted there is an “onslaught of anti-transgender state laws attacking you and your families” and that he is “standing up for you against all these hateful bills.” But there are no such laws. Biden is referencing the aforementioned laws protecting elementary school children from being groomed with homosexual advocacy curriculums, and laws protecting girls and women from men who want to hang out in their locker rooms and compete in their sporting venues.

But his biggest whopper was this one: “Today, we’re announcing even more steps … to end the epidemic of violence against transgender women of color and girls of color [and] to ensure transgender seniors can age with dignity, and to finally pass a bipartisan Equality Act.”

That “Equality Act” is just the Demos’ next legal maneuver to impose their agenda on you, but is there really an “epidemic of violence against transgender women of color and girls of color”?

Actually, no. According to data on the murder of gender dysphoric people, men and women of any age or race, when Donald Trump was president, on average each year there were about 25 murders of people who identified as “transgender” — which, based on the number of people identifying as such, is about 1.8 murders per 100,000. The murder rate for all Americans is about 4.9 per 100,000. So, you were actually less likely to be murdered if you identified as “transgender.” Ironically, that murder rate may have gone up under Biden’s administration, according to the homosexual advocacy organization HRC, but remains far below the average for all Americans.

Of course, if Biden wanted to address a real “epidemic of violence,” he would make the epidemic of black-on-black assaults and murder in America his administration’s highest priority — but that would mean having to admit that Democrat social policies are at the root of that violence. In the most recent year for complete data, there were far more black people murdered than white people — even though the black population in America is only 13% of the whole. Moreover, the suspect in 88% black victims of murder is also black.

Further, regarding Biden’s “white supremacy” boogeyman and the interracial crime disparity, according to the Bureau of Justice Statistics survey of criminal victimization, black people commit about 90% of interracial felonies but adult black males who committed most of those crimes represent less than 3% of the population.

That notwithstanding, for Biden, the murder of those who identify as “transgender” is a much louder dog whistle.
