Biden’s presidential proclamation on transgenderism illustrates how he wants to transform America

By Jonathon Van Maren

On March 30, 2022, Joe Biden released a presidential proclamation for the so-called “Transgender Day Of Visibility.” The proclamation stated:

The First Lady, the Vice President, the Second Gentleman, and my entire Administration see you for who you are — made in the image of God and deserving of dignity, respect, and support. On this day and every day, we recognize the resilience, strength, and joy of transgender, nonbinary, and gender nonconforming people. We celebrate the activism and determination that have fueled the fight for transgender equality. We acknowledge the adversity and discrimination that the transgender community continues to face across our Nation and around the world.

These days, LGBTQ representation is everywhere in the media, politics, and the big and small screen, so transgender visibility is a cultural constant. But according to Biden, the work of the transgender movement is just beginning — the pushback to the LGBT agenda must be faced, and destroyed:

In the past year, hundreds of anti-transgender bills in States were proposed across America, most of them targeting transgender kids. The onslaught has continued this year. These bills are wrong. Efforts to criminalize supportive medical care for transgender kids, to ban transgender children from playing sports, and to outlaw discussing LGBTQI+ people in schools undermine their humanity and corrode our Nation’s values.

In a recorded video, Biden added to his proclamation by condemning the “onslaught” of “anti-transgender” legislation across the country that he called “hateful” and “just wrong,” and assured the movement that he would be working to ensure equality “on the playing field” as well as “in the classroom.” How biological males dominating women’s sports means equality on the playing field (or in the swimming pool) Biden didn’t say, but he called on legislators once again to pass the radical Equality Act, which would remake American in the image of the LGBT revolution and eliminate pro-life laws across the country.

The lines Biden is reciting are obviously not his. The vast majority of his career was over long before transgenderism went mainstream, and if you’d have told, say, Sen. Joe Biden that one day he’d be championing the right of children to get sex changes, he would have laughed you off — or perhaps even gotten furious with you. But like the rest of his party, he has floated along with the cultural tides, and we are now treated to an obviously elderly man, slightly slurring his lines, repeating what the LGBT movement wants him to say. He doesn’t need to understand this new phase of the revolution. He just needs to support it.

For example, in his recorded statement Biden said this: “To parents of transgender children, affirming your child’s identity is one of the most powerful things you can do to keep them safe and healthy.” Does he know that most children grow out of gender dysphoria on their own? Is he aware of the permanent damage so-called transgender “treatments” do to developing bodies? Does he realize that tens of thousands of children are embarking on a path that will deprive them of their ability to bear children or feel sexual pleasure in the future — before they’re old enough to vote, drink, or drive?

  1. Navi says:

    The truest thing Joe Biden ever said was at the 2020 presidential debate, in which he declared that “I am the Democratic Party now”. Joe Biden’s “evolution” on abortion and other social issues is a near-perfect microcosm of the Democratic Party as a whole. In the 1970s and early 1980s, the Human Life Amendment that would’ve overturned Roe v. Wade received bipartisan support (though fell short of passage). Much like Democratic vice-presidential nominees Sargent Shriver and Tom Eagleton, Joe Biden supported it in 1982 and identified as pro-life. He reversed his stance later in the 1980s and voted against it, also leading the smear campaign against the anti-Roe Supreme Court nominee Robert Bork (which he credits with saving abortion on demand). Likewise in the 1980s and early 1990s, many pro-life Democrats (Jesse Jackson, Al Gore, Bill Clinton, among others) flip-flopped while Democrats that continued to be pro-life like Governor Robert Casey were marginalized.
    But Biden continued to support some limits on abortion – the Hyde Amendment (which was included in every congressional budget without much fanfare) and the Partial-birth Abortion Ban (which Congress passed three times with bipartisan support, though the first two were vetoed by President Clinton). Biden said the latter didn’t go far enough and he would’ve supported further limits on late-term abortion, a stance he reiterated as recently as 2012.

    But through the Obama-Trump era, pro-life Democrats disappeared rapidly as the abortion industry tightened its grip on the party. The 2010 Affordable Care Act was a difficult vote for such Democrats, and the 2010 midterm shellacking saw pro-life Democrats in both chambers lose their seats. The #ShoutYourAbortion campaign starting in 2015, while fortunately doing nothing to increase public support for abortion, resulted in pro-choice establishment Democrats dropping the pretence of wanting the practice to be “safe, legal, and rare”. High-profile pro-life Democrats continued to lose their seats or flip-flop. Rep. Dan Lipinski fought off a challenge from abortion candidate Marie Newman in 2018, but she defeated him in 2020. Two years after being spotted at an EMILY’s List event, Senator Bob Casey Jr. (who usually votes for pro-life stuff but is a card-carrying member of the Democratic establishment, unlike the Pennsylvania governor that stood up to them 30 years ago) voted to advance the Women’s Health Protection Act which would’ve legalized abortion up to birth even in the absence of Roe. He technically didn’t cosponsor or vote for passage of the bill, but the writing is on the wall (there’s no other reason to vote against a filibuster unless one wants a bill to pass). I predict that he writes an op-ed officially declaring himself pro-choice after the Supreme Court overturns Roe in June. So the vestigial pro-life wing of the party is down to only one member in each chamber of congress (Senator Joe Manchin and Rep. Henry Cuellar). All others are 100% pro-abortion.

    When Joe Biden came out of retirement to run for president in 2019, he had to immediately flip on the Hyde Amendment after demands from the abortion lobby. As president, his CDC made dangerous abortion pills available by mail order. Though he hasn’t formally renounced his opposition to partial-birth abortion (or, more accurately, hasn’t been asked about it by anyone), Biden strongly endorsed the Women’s Health Protection Act. Thus completing the evolution. The only thing President Biden has done to disappoint abortion enthusiasts is his persistent refusal to say the word “abortion”.

    Not much to say about gender ideology, other than that the evolution has taken place over a much shorter period (2015-present). But the parallel is the same.
