Nothing is too extreme for the left.
Their toxic ideas are eroding American culture.
Now a GOP governor called out the left for one ridiculous sports award.
The sports world has been completely politicized by the left.
Common sense is under constant assault, most notably with the radical transgender movement.
Biological men are competing in women’s sports, and liberals have largely been silent.
And South Dakota governor Kristi Noem called out the absurdity of University of Pennsylvania swimmer Lia Thomas being nominated for the NCAA’s Woman of the Year award.
Thomas competed as William Thomas last year and was the 462nd ranked swimmer in college.
After “transitioning,” Thomas catapulted to the number one ranking, which exposes the unfairness of ridiculous transgender push.
Noem said during a Newsmax interview, “You know, it’s such an unfair issue right now…And what they’re embracing is so extreme. You know, the ‘Woman of the Year’ should be a biological woman. We fought for this years ago with Title IX. I’ve continued to defend it for many, many years now. In fact, years ago, when I was serving in Congress, I fought to protect the state of rodeo from this agenda. They started with something that they felt nobody would notice, but we fought back and got them to back off. Now, they’re going after every single competitive sport. And this is the worst example right now.”
Noem initially vetoed a bill banning biological males competing in female sports amid external pressure from corporations, but she has recently stood firm on the issue.
Noem added, “What they’re doing here to take away a fair competition for women is detrimental to the future of this country because erasing gender the way that they are creates an unfair environment that doesn’t allow our girls to grow up, compete, to show success and possibly pursue professional sports if they’d like to.”
It’s mind-boggling that this even needs to be said, but this is how much leftists have degraded the culture.
University of Kentucky swimmer Riley Gaines, who lost to Thomas, stood up for women’s sports.
In response to Penn nominating Thomas for Woman of the Year, Gaines said that “this is yet another slap in the face to women. First a female national title and now nominated for the pinnacle award in collegiate athletics. The NCAA has made this award worthless. This award combines athletic performance with academics, service, and character. What character has Thomas shown other than sheer selfishness and entitlement? The disrespect and disregard for the other female athletes in Thomas’ interviews is eye opening.”
Nothing can be taken for granted when leftists are involved.
They will not stop until they’ve flattened all of society in the name of “equity.”
Democrats try to pretend as if the culture wars don’t matter, yet they’re the ones pushing so hard to enforce this madness on all of society.
If it didn’t matter, they wouldn’t be promoting it nonstop.
