And you’re paying for it.
The Biden regime is indefatigably committed to the baseless and dangerous – indeed, life-destroying – delusion that women can become men and men can become champion female swimmers and International Women of Courage, and so when its budget proposal for 2024 included taxpayer money for genital mutilation surgeries and hormones for veterans, the regime was just being consistent. This budget item, however, makes it abundantly clear that “tolerance” is not on the agenda, either for the regime or for the LGBTQ industry. Authoritarians to the core, both are after total compliance: we not only have to believe in their insane fantasies, we also have to pay for them.
The groundwork for this budget proposal was laid in June 2021, when the Department of Veterans Affairs lifted a 20-year ban on what Rolling Stone called “gender confirmation surgeries for trans people,” and what the budget itself refers to as “gender affirming care.” These bland euphemisms are designed to hide the fact that what is really being discussed here is physical butchery, making people dependent upon pharmaceuticals for their entire lifetime, and destroying their possibility of having normal relationships and families. There can be no doubt that future generations will look upon today’s society approval, and indeed, celebration of all this with unmitigated horror, but those days are still a ways off. Right now, we have to sign the checks for the destruction of our fellow human beings who have fallen prey to this delusion.
The evils are being sold as a positive good, as evil always has been sold throughout history. And so back in 2021 when the Veterans Affairs Department lifted the ban on these mutilation surgeries, VA Secretary Denis McDonough announced happily that the department would now be “allowing transgender vets to go through the full gender confirmation process with VA by their side.” He had the sinister audacity or jaw-dropping ignorance to add: “We’re making these changes not only because they are the right thing to do, but because they can save lives.”
Now the budget that will force all Americans to pay for this crime against humanity for veterans states in the same vein that it is doing so in recognition of “the diversity of America’s veterans,” and also as part of action that the Biden regime is taking in order to “advance equity across veterans’ services.” It goes out of its way to point out that “the VA announced that it was extending survivor benefits to certain survivors of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Intersex veterans.”
Terrific, but the downside of all this is already becoming apparent. The Daily Caller reported Thursday that “former Navy Seal Chris Beck announced in a Dec. 1 interview that he was transitioning back to being a man, after nearly a decade of living as a woman and advocating for trans people in the military.” Was Beck consulted when the new budget, requiring Americans to pay for the genital mutilation of psychologically disturbed veterans, was formulated? Was anyone, anyone at all, who was involved in putting the 2024 budget together apprised of the extent of the butchery involved in “gender-affirming” surgeries, and the physical and psychological harm that can ensue? (For evidence, see here and here, but be forewarned: these images and accounts are not for the fainthearted or weak of stomach.)
There is a great deal that is monstrous about the Biden regime, not least its ongoing attempts to destroy the freedom of speech (remember the “Disinformation Governance Board,” and make no mistake, such initiatives continue) and criminalize dissent (as we see with the ongoing Jan. 6 “insurrection” hoax). It has actually become an open question whether or not America will survive this regime as a free society. Certainly if the Left succeeds in attaining its authoritarian goals, the human cost will be catastrophic, but that cost is apparent right now in the regime’s commitment to “gender affirming care.” The recipients of this “care” will find their gratitude turning to resentment, horror, and rage as they have to live with what was done to them when no less an authority than the United States government was touting their mutilation as physically and psychologically affirming.
If there were any justice, we would ultimately see Old Joe Biden, Kamala Harris and all the rest of them on trial at Nuremberg. But as the elites usually do, they’re likely to escape the horrific consequences of their actions, and die laden with awards and honors for their services to humanity. The only people who will have to pay the price are those who will be the recipients of their taxpayer-funded largesse.
