Last week, Michigan Democrat Rashida Tlaib reintroduced the Justice for All Act designed to “push back” against “conservative court rulings” and Republican-led states.
In short, Tlaib and fellow Squad member Cori Bush want to codify into federal law the progressive dream of forcing the country to obey their idea of “diversity,” “inclusion,” and “equity.”
Among the many things this legislation seeks to do is expand the definition of s*x discrimination to include all the people who claim to be a gender they aren’t or claim not to have a gender at all.
Tlaib claims that this legislation will fight back against the “fascism” of Republican-led states that are waging an “assault on civil rights.”
In other words, Tlaib wants to pass a federal law that would prevent states from passing laws like preventing children from being chemically or surgically mutilated.
In her statement on reintroducing this legislation that will go nowhere in the Senate, Tlaib claims that this bill would “restore the original intent of our civil rights laws.”
The civil rights laws intended to include “transgender” surgeries for minors?
Who does she think she’s kidding?
More than likely, Tlaib is reintroducing this legislation now because she knows in January, a Republican-led House would laugh her out of the room.
Ultimately, however, her efforts are purely symbolic.
Tlaib may get the current Democrat majority in the House to reflexively vote for this piece of garbage, but it will die in the current 50/50 Senate, where there is no chance 10 Senate Republicans would be willing to sign on to this nonsense.
Last week, Trafalgar Group released a survey that found nearly 80 percent of Americans oppose providing “transgender” procedures to minors.
When asked if they believe minors should be required to wait until they turn 18 to undergo chemical or surgical transgender procedures, a staggering 78.7 percent of respondents said minors should have to wait. Even a majority of Democrats, 53.2 percent, believe they should wait.
Only 21.3 percent of respondents said minors shouldn’t have to wait until they are 18.
