Roadblocks to Obama’s Tranny Edicts

There is resistance to his totalitarian agenda.

Barack Obama isn’t exactly rolling through American culture unimpeded with his illogical obsession with transgender rights. It took decades for same-sex marriage activists to make the nation bend to their will, and even then it was through the courts, not popular opinion. Obama wants the process ripping gender designation signs from bathroom doors to occur almost immediately. What’s the cause of Obama’s obsession? Have the social justice warriors fixed all of the more pressing issues in the world?

Last week, the Obama administration decreed that all schools receiving federal dollars must open their bathrooms and sports teams to transgender students or else the schools might see that funding disappear. Texas Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick accused the Obama administration of engaging in blackmail. Patrick said, “This will be the end of public education, if this prevails. People will pull their kids out, homeschooling will explode, private schools will increase.” We’d call that the silver lining. The Lone Star State intends to push back against this encroachment, too, and we doubt it will be the lone state to do so.

Meanwhile, the Pentagon is delaying the pivot toward a policy allowing transgendered Americans to serve openly in the military. It will take months for some form of “enlightened” transgender policies to govern the force meant to keep America safe because Pentagon officials disagree on how accommodating the military must become. Much like Obama’s executive overreach in other areas, whether it be states or the military chain of command, there is resistance to Obama’s totalitarian tranny agenda.
