Loretta Lynch Redefines Reality

The DOJ must rely on self-reporting bathroom-switchers to be honest.

During her explanation for why Barack Obama’s Social Justice™ Department filed a counter suit against North Carolina over the state’s bathroom law, Attorney General Loretta Lynch pontificated that the government is in no position to “impose” a definition of gender upon America. In other words, the Department of “Justice” is bringing the full weight of bureaucratic fiat against a state it accuses of discriminating. But that alleged discrimination was against a class of people who have no legal definition, so the DOJ must rely on self-reporting bathroom-switchers to be honest.

“This is a time to summon our national virtues of inclusivity, diversity, compassion and open-mindedness,” Lynch lectured. “What we must not do — what we must never do — is turn on our neighbors, our family members, our fellow Americans, for something they cannot control, and deny what makes them human. This is why none of us can stand by when a state enters the business of legislating identity and insists that a person pretend to be something they are not, or invents a problem that doesn’t exist as a pretext for discrimination and harassment.” [emphasis added]

If there is no measure of who is transgender and who is not outside of self-described feeling, Rule of Law is flung out the window. Would the Justice Department accept a definition of exactly what it means to be transgender? Or is it discrimination to even ask for an answer? Until answered, the privacy most people assume when they enter a bathroom is nonexistent, all because the Obama administration is imposing an altered reality on 99.7% of us — inventing a problem that didn’t previously exist, if you will.
