The Upcoming Anti-Trans Pogrom

It's odd how paying even the slightest attention to the incestuous rightwing internet allows you to finger the evolving conservative narrative.  In this case the Rightwing's obsession with and plans to Kill Trans Persons.

The Upcoming Republican electoral strategy could not be any more obvious.  Trans people are going to be demonized as a scare tactic reminiscent of Karl Rove's No Gay Marriage Constitutional Amendment in 2004.  It's clear Republicans believe attacking Trans people (especially women) is a way to woo white suburban women and keep them in the Republican fold even while Republicans enact laws and policies which specifically harm women and children.

Of course, standard Republican skullduggery and voter suppression tactics will be used as well as the well-worn tactic of inventing scandals in the fever rightwing swamps and expecting the Corporate Media of carrying the message to people who are less invested in monitoring politics.

This is what Republicans and Rightwingers have done with CRT and it's what they are doing with Trans persons.  It's not necessarily that the effort to demonize and ostracize Trans people is coordinated; it's that each conservative propagandist sees and understands that their rightwing drones are primed for anti-Trans messages, that Libs of TikTok stories garner clicks and attention, the Matt Walsh and Tim Poole receive positive feedback from making Trans people the villain, that thousands of rightwingers leave vile messages on their Youtube channels, and that by alleging all Transpeople are sex criminals by their very nature.

Traitor Trump clearly indicated this in his most recent Hitlerian Speech that, Ooooooh, won't someone think of the Children? rhetoric vis-a-vis Trans persons was a Trojan Horse and the goal has always been to use the issue to win elections and gain Power and to then imprison and eliminate Trans people afterwards.

Here is a transcript of Sniff-Sniff Trump's Fascist Speech    

The left wing’s gender insanity being pushed on our children is an act of child abuse. Very simple. Here’s my plan to stop the chemical, physical and emotional mutilation of our youth.

On day one, I will revoke Joe Biden’s cruel policies on so-called gender affirming care. Ridiculous. A preposterous test that includes giving kids puberty blockers, mutating their physical appearance, and ultimately performing surgery on minor children.

Can you believe this? I will sign a new executive order instructing every federal agency to cease all programs that promote the concept of sex and gender transition at any age. I will then ask Congress to permanently stop federal taxpayer dollars from being used to promote or pay for these procedures and pass a law prohibiting child sexual mutilation in all 50 states. 

It will go very quickly. I will declare that any hospital or healthcare provider that participates in the chemical or physical mutilation of minor youth will no longer meet federal health and safety standards for Medicaid and Medicare and will be terminated from the program immediately.

Furthermore, I will support the creation of a private right of action for victims to sue doctors who have unforgivably performed these procedures on minor children. The Department of Justice will investigate Big Pharma and the big hospital network to determine whether they have deliberately covered up horrific long term side effects of sex transitions in order to get rich at the expense of vulnerable patients. In this case, very vulnerable.

We will also investigate whether Big Pharma or others have illegally marketed hormones and puberty blockers which are in no way licensed or approved for this use.

My Department of Education will inform states and school districts that if any teacher or school official suggests to a child that they could be trapped in the wrong body, they will be faced with severe consequences, including potential civil rights violations for sex discrimination and the elimination of federal funding. As part of our new credentialing body for teachers, we will promote positive education about the nuclear family, the roles of mothers and fathers, and celebrating rather than erasing the things that make men and women different and unique.

I will ask Congress to pass a bill establishing the only genders recognized by the United States government are male and female, and they are assigned at birth.

The bill will also make clear that Title IX prohibits men from participating in women’s sports. And we will protect the rights of parents from being forced to allow their minor child to assume a gender which is new and an identity without the parent’s consent.

The identity will not be new, and it will not be without parental consent. No serious country should be telling its children that they were born with the wrong gender, a concept that was never heard of in all of human history. Nobody’s ever heard of this. What’s happening today? It was all when the radical left invented it just a few years ago.

Under my leadership this madness will end. Thank you very much. (Italics mine for emphasis of the Absolutist Language)

I think it is very important we don't obscure this behind euphemisms like "draconian" and "inhumane" and call this what it is; Murderous.  The Republican Party is adopting a plan which would lead to suicide, targeted killings of Trans persons, and State-Sponsored imprisionment and death for the Trans community and anyone who aids or assists them.  And Remember this isn't some random blogger (like me) but the former Republican President and most likely Republican nominee in 2024.  And remember this is absolutely, a matter of freedom, a matter of self-determination, and Constitutional protections absolutely apply here.  Which along with hollow States Rights' arguments show the utter depravity, and utter farce the rightwing claims about the Constitution, freedom and liberty actually are.

The reason Republicans dislike Trump is because he states clearly (or as clearly as his adderall infused spirochete riddled brain can manage) what the Republicans plan actually is.  And now, Trump is clearly laying out the plan to use the Awesome Power of the US Government to make medical care for Trans or Non-Binary persons prima facie illegal and to make Trans people de facto criminals by the fact of the mere existence.  And we always know what follows from such Republican law making; state-sanctioned extrajudicial killings and targeted incarcerations and harassment.

Trump did this with Abortion in 2016, Trump did this about Social Security in 2022.  He clearly stated Republicans plan to punish women who get abortions and Republicans plan to eliminate Social Security and the rest of the meager Social Safety Net.  And that is exactly what happened and is happening now... 

Trans Rights are Human Rights. Republicans plan to make Trans people into Modern day Witches.  Understand it's not hyperbole, it's happening, Republican State legislators are banning medical care for people and Republican Governors are enacting sweeping orders threatening to punish anyone and everyone who helpsTrans people.  Given control of the Federal Government in 2024 and you'll see Trump appointed Judges, the Attorney General, and other heads of Departments use their power to harass, harm, and eliminate Trans people.  

Always remember whenever a Republican complains of the Weaponization of the Department of Justice they are telling on themselves.  Republicans, absolutely intend to Weaponize as many Departments as possible, as they did during Trump's first Regime and during the W(orst President Ever) Presidency.  Every Accusation is a Confession.
