‘Alice’ in Obama-Land

“Who’s been painting my roses red?/ Who dares to taint/ With vulgar paint/ The royal flower bed? /For painting my roses red/ Someone will lose his head… That’s enough [finger-pointing]! Off with their heads!” —Queen of Hearts from “Alice in Wonderland” (1951)

Well, at least Lewis Carroll’s Queen allegedly has a heart. Unlike fascist Obama and his minions who have none (including heads). Our real-life equivalent is scowling, imperious AG Loretta Lynch. She’s twisted the meaning of the concept of “sex” in the 1964 Civil Rights act to mean legally undefined gender dysphoria. Yet, that estimated fraction of .03 of one percent of our population isn’t at issue. This policy creates a sexual predator loophole: an excuse to access women and young girls in the confined area of public bathrooms, changing rooms (read: Target stores), showers and locker rooms. Of this, Ms. Lynch said: “None of us can stand by when a state is in the business of legislating identity and insists that a person pretend to be something they are not.” Ah, the irony emanating from the dictatorial beltway bubble. Via the federal regime, statist Lynch elevates criminal pretenders over the actual rights of biological females. Even the Queen of Hearts’ logic is not so contrary.

Let’s be clear: progressives have made an absolute mockery of Martin Luther King Jr.‘s legitimate struggle for equal rights for the black community. However, transgender bathrooms have nothing to do with water fountains or segregated buses or schools. Specifically, hormone-fueled men present a potential clear and present danger to unaccompanied women, teens and young girls. So do mischievous adolescent boys wielding cell phones with camera and video functions. Like virtually every Obama-supported policy, this is another recipe for chaos — and disaster.

So, non-compliance to Mr. Obama’s transgender edict (via his Orwellian Justice Department) will result in restricting funds for school breakfast and lunch programs for poor students. Heartless: so much for the party of “compassion” for the downtrodden. This is yet another power grab by Big Government ideologues to expand their own political control. See the longstanding Obama pattern: isolated, often petty (aforementioned bathrooms) or tragic situations (read: Obama “son” Trayvon Martin) are manipulated into full-blown societal crises. This artificial chaos propels desired hard leftist change (read: Obama’s transformation). That, in turn, has siphoned off America’s strength, and diminished her First World status at home and abroad. Pro-American conservatives are smeared as LGBT bigots for wanting to protect the dignity, privacy and safety of vulnerable girls and women. The Queen of Wonderland’s treatment of Alice is less devious, radical and mean-spirited than figurehead Lynch’s abuse of power.
