Seriously, thank God for Donald Trump. We can’t think of three other Republicans in that entire field of candidates who would have had the guts to buck the SOCIAL JUSTICE agenda of the left and do what Trump did on Wednesday in service of our military. And those that would have could have never convinced enough Americans to vote for them in a contest against Hillary Clinton. It just goes to show how wrong the NeverTrump conservatives are and how wise this nation’s evangelicals were in choosing to overlook some of Trump’s less-attractive qualities in the election run-up. This guy is firing on all cylinders.
On Wednesday, Trump announced that he was putting an end to the social experiments of Barack Obama and Ash Carter.
“After consultation with my generals and military experts, please be advised that the United States government will not accept or allow transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. military,” the president wrote on Twitter. “Our military must be focused on decisive and overwhelming victory and cannot be burdened with the tremendous medical costs and disruption that transgender in the military would entail.”
As the New York Times so rightly put it, the announcement “reverses the gradual transformation of the military under President Barack Obama.” You’re damn right it does. The military isn’t meant to be a playground for activists to push their LGBT agenda; it’s meant to be a well-oiled killing machine who’s sole focus is the fighting of war (with some tangential issues like peacekeeping, rescue, and containment being part and parcel of that). Obama’s edicts were worse than a distraction, they threatened to weaken our military in service of the extreme left. In service of a bunch of people who would just as soon spit on a soldier as look at them. It was a disgrace.
But it wasn’t even bad enough that Obama allowed transgender individuals to serve in the military; he actually went further, implementing a system whereby Pentagon money was to be used to FUND sex-change operations and other trans-related medical treatments! As though we have defense money to waste on this abject nonsense!
Of course, the liberal media is going to do its thing, and we notice that out of eight separate quotes reacting to Trump’s announcement, ALL EIGHT were negative to the decision. Now consider how many conservatives are applauding this move and then think about that. This is supposed to be an objective paper, but they couldn’t find a single person to support the decision? No, all they can do is quote Carter, who is defending his own legacy, the always-ready-to-bash-Trump Senator John McCain, and a bunch of gay activism groups. It’s pathetic.
Oh well, the important thing is that the right decision was made. Transgenderism is, by definition, a mental illness, and our military is now better off because we have a president with some actual courage.
