Serious question, is President Joe Biden okay? It is easy to laugh at how fragile he is but sometimes I am seriously concerned that allowing this madness to continue is teetering on elder abuse.
On Tuesday, President Joe Biden held a ceremony at the White House to sign the “Respect for Marriage Act,” which is an act to codify same-sex marriage.
During his speech, he somehow went from talking about marriage equality to screaming at the crowd about transgender kids and how racism, anti-Semitism, homophobia, transphobia are all connected.
In the midst of his emotional word vomit, he also decided to bring up the Colorado Springs gay club shooting….yet failed to mention that the shooter himself was non-binary.
“We must stop the violence,” Biden said. “Like we just saw in Colorado Springs, a place of acceptance and celebration was targeted for violence and terror.”
“We need to challenge the hundreds of calloused and cynical laws introduced in the states targeting transgender children, terrifying families,” he screamed, “and criminalizing doctors who give children the care they need. We have to protect these children so they know they are loved and we will stand up for them and – say I can see for themselves.”
Again, I say, huh?
Then he declared, “Folks! Racism, anti-semitism, homophobia, transphobia – they’re all connected!”
And gibberish ensued, in which he concluded that “we are all created equal.”
As if that was not bad enough, Biden also claimed that people are being thrown out of restaurants for being gay.
“When a person can be married in the morning, and thrown out of a restaurant for being gay in the afternoon, this is still wrong,” he said.
Since when as anyone been “thrown out” of a restaurant for who they choose to have sex with? That just sounds like something that would have been front page news in today’s world….yet I have not heard of a single incident where that has happened.
Is he referencing when a Christian cake-shop refused to make a wedding cake for a gay couple because it went against the owner’s religious beliefs? That is not throwing them out of a restaurant for being gay.
If that is the example he is using, it is not a good one considering just earlier this month a group was denied service at the Metzger Bar and Butchery in Virginia for being Christian Conservatives.
The bar claimed that the group was seeking to “deprive women and LGBTQ+ persons of their basic rights in Virginia” because of their beliefs, adding that they have “always refused service to anyone for making our staff feel uncomfortable and unsafe and this was the driving force behind our decision.”
In other words, a gay establishment refused service to Christians, just like a Christian establishment refused to make a cake for a gay wedding.
Where is the alienation? Because to me, it sounds pretty equal on both sides of the aisle, if that is the one tiny straw of an example that he is grasping at.
