The Patriot Post® · The Appalling 'Morality' of Democrats

By Brian Mark Weber ·

President Joe Biden claims to care about our children. But it’s not what you think.

Biden and the Democrats have twisted the cultural narrative so much that the president recently declared that resisting the “transgender” mutilation of children is “close to sinful.” He also said in reference to the grossly misnamed Respect for Marriage Act that we need to “pass legislation like we passed with same-sex marriage.” He threatened, “You mess with that, you’re breaking the law and you’re going to be held accountable.”

That’s a chilling threat from the president of the United States, a supposed “good” Catholic,“ and it’s directed at the millions of Americans who are standing up to defend our children from these horrific practices. But it’s especially rich coming from Joe Biden, who claims to have changed his mind about same-sex marriage after seeing two men kissing way back in the 1950s. Biden says that was an epiphany in his life. "I’ll never forget it,” he said. “I turned and looked at my dad. He said: ‘Joey, it’s simple. They love each other.’”

Joey, it’s simple. You’re a liar.

Back in 1973, more than a decade after he learned that those fictitious men simply loved each other, Biden opposed homosexuals working in the federal government. In 1993, he voted in favor of the Defense of Marriage Act, which defined marriage as the union of a man and a woman. He also supported Bill Clinton’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy in the U.S. military.

As for children, political analyst Robert Spencer wonders whether Biden will ever be held to account for the human cost of his misplaced compassion. “Almost certainly not,” he writes. “He’s more likely to get a Nobel Prize than to face the repudiation and shame that should be coming to him for endorsing this inhuman social contagion.”

Although Biden and others may have thought they were being compassionate and empathetic by opening the doors to celebrating and codifying same-sex marriage, it was entirely predictable that they wouldn’t stop there and that our children would be the groomers’ next target.

Sadly, too many on the side of morality and decency are silent.

But Florida Governor Ron DeSantis isn’t holding back. In response to Biden’s comments about the sinfulness of protecting children, DeSantis said: “It is not ‘sinful’ to prohibit the mutilation of minors. It is not acceptable for the federal government to mandate that procedures like sex change operations be allowed for kids.”

At least there’s one person in power who’s not afraid to stand up for children.

Fortunately, while the establishment uniparty on Capitol Hill is too fearful to stop this horrific attack on the most vulnerable among us, states around the country are taking bold steps. More recently, South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem signed the Help Not Harm bill, making hers the sixth state to restrict or outright ban so-called gender-affirming surgery and even puberty blockers and hormone therapy for minors. It’s particularly welcome there given Noem’s previous inconsistency.

What’s problematic for the anti-science Left is the disregard for solid research. As the Manhattan Institute reports: “On the issue of medical treatment for youth gender dysphoria in particular, American medical organizations have demonstrated a preference for ideologically driven conclusions over cautious review of the available research.”

In reality, this movement to mutilate our kids is really a social and cultural one. There’s very little debate, and those who do speak up are condemned in the most aggressive and hateful ways. Think of the attacks on author J.K. Rowling for merely expressing her views on sex and gender.

And we can’t forget about James Shupe, the first “nonbinary” American.

“It wasn’t until I came out against the sterilization and mutilation of gender-confused children and transgender military service members in 2017 that LGBT organizations stopped helping me,” Shupe writes. “Most of the media retreated with them. Overnight, I went from being a liberal media darling to a conservative pariah.”

The laws now being considered in some states may be a case of too little, too late. Unless we seriously address what one writer calls “the queering of the American frontier,” the country may be irreversibly lost.

In the end, a nation that considers itself both civilized and virtuous and yet won’t defend its children is neither civilized nor virtuous.
