The Democrats have become a radical party.
Their ideas have moved far outside the mainstream.
Now an insane Democrat governor blocked one commonsense sports law.
The left has adopted the absurd idea that biological males should be allowed to compete against biological females in sports.
This clownish idea was exposed for everyone to see when University of Pennsylvania swimmer Lia Thomas dominated the women’s division after “transitioning.”
Thomas competed as William Thomas in the men’s division the year prior and was ranked 462nd; Thomas transitioned to the women’s division and instantly catapulted to number 1.
Despite this glaring evidence, leftists refuse to believe that there is any competitive advantage for athletes that “transition.”
In Pennsylvania, the state legislature passed the Fairness in Women’s Sports Act, which blocked biological males from dominating the female divisions in sports.
But far-left governor Tom Wolf vetoed the legislation.
Wolf said, “I have been crystal clear during my time in office that hate has no place in Pennsylvania, especially discrimination against already marginalized youth representing less-than-half of 1 percent of Pennsylvania’s population.”
The left brands any disagreement as “hate,” which is ridiculous.
Leftists are pushing radical transgender policy, and the public is not on board.
Pennsylvanians support the Fairness in Women’s Sports Act by a 21-point margin, but Wolfe vetoed it anyway.
It’s quite telling that Democrats say they believe in democracy, but only when it serves their interests.
For example, they will cite one poll saying that a majority of Americans favor a particular policy and that Republicans are ruling by minority.
Yet here is Wolf “undermining” democracy by not affirming the will of the people.
It’s just proof that Democrats do not mean what they say.
If it’s good for their cause, they’re in favor of it; if it’s bad for their cause, they’re against it.
That is the only principle leftists live by.
Terry Schilling of the American Principles Project (APP) said, “Every girl athlete deserves access to a fair playing field and an equal opportunity to compete for scholarships and titles…Ensuring female sports are reserved for women and girls ought to be a no-brainer. Unfortunately, thanks to the actions of Gov. Wolf and his Democrat allies, athletic opportunities for Pennsylvania girls are now under serious threat.”
High school girls have lost out on places in competitions because of transgender athletes, which impacts their ability to get scholarships.
The “woke” transgender movement is accelerating at breakneck speed.
People outside of gender studies departments had not heard of this nonsense fewer than ten years ago.
Now terms like “birth givers” and “people who menstruate” and “chest feeders” are becoming mainstream.
And anyone who is not on board runs the risk of getting “canceled.”
World-renowned author JK Rowling is reviled by a large section of the left for her refusal to go along with the transgender mania.
Even Harry Potter cast members turn their backs on her.
Most recently, Bette Midler and Macy Gray got put in the blender for speaking out against the transgender dogma.
The left will not stop unless enough people put their food down.
