College Fires Lt. General, Caves to the Radical Left Over Transgender Policy

Lt. General William G. “Jerry” Boykin (Retired) taught at Hampden-Sydney College, an all male school, for 9 years.  But when he made an off-handed remark in military-humor about Obama’s PC transgender policy,  the radical left put enough pressure on the school to have him fired for advocating violence against gays and transgenders.

“…the first man who goes in the restroom with my daughter will not have to worry about surgery.”

Free Speech destroyed

Lieutenant General William G. “Jerry” Boykin (Ret) is a 36 year military veteran. Thirteen of those years he spent in Delta Force, 2 of them as their Commander. In 2007 he was George W. Bush’s Deputy Undersecretary of Defense for Intelligence. He is the Executive Vice President of the Family Research Council. He’s no fool, and he’s a real live American Patriot.

But he is not without controversy, because of his openly Christian beliefs and stance on family values. He is not fond of Obama’s toilet policies.

The left hates free speech, and every time someone disagrees with them, they are quick to shut them down. And in this case, the school caved immediately to their whims.

The bottom line? INTIMIDATION works for them. They are the most intolerant people in the world.

Here is LtGen Boykin’s story in his own words:

“Because some of you already know and are contacting me about it, let me make it official and let you all know that I have been terminated from teaching at Hampden-Sydney College after nine years there.

Hampden Sydney is the 10th oldest college in America and is one of the two Men’s colleges left in America. Let me begin by saying that it is a fine school with some very good young men who give me hope for the future.

There are also a few very good faculty members who I consider to be good friends and true patriots. They stood with me through this whole situation as the school made the decision to terminate me and I appreciate everything that these friends at the school did to try and help.

Opposing the bathroom policy

The bottom line is that I oppose these so called “Bathroom” bills that let men go into women’s locker rooms, showers, and toilets and I have been very public about it. When I said in Orlando that “…the first man who goes in the restroom with my daughter will not have to worry about surgery”, the LGBT community once again came after me, claiming that I was calling for violence against transgender people.

Men using bathrooms as an excuse

Well, that is simply not the case and I have never called for violence against anyone. I was referring to perverts who will use these policies to get into locker rooms with girls and women, and I object to that. My statement was meant to be humor and not a call for violence, which everyone in my audience understood as humor.

Nonetheless, I gave the LGBT community just what they needed to pressure the college leadership to terminate me and they did.

Free Speech smothered

My personal view is that PC speech is smothering free speech, a constitutional right in America. Too many years in the Army talking to soldiers still impedes my ability and willingness to say things that are not permissible under the PC rules and it has cost me a job. But I have not and will not change my position on men in women’s showers and locker rooms.

I hope that moms and dads across America will stand up to this assault on women and girls. These bills are the epitome of disrespect and disregard for women and girls. There are already cases of men doing exactly what I feared would happen, from videoing a ten-year-old girl in a gas station to choking a thirteen-year-old girl and trying to abduct her.

There are several other attacks in women’s facilities that have recently been reported. 

Dangerous policy

Folks, this is immoral and dangerous to allow predators to enter any place where a woman has the right to expect privacy and security. I hope that all who read this will take a stand to protect our wives, mothers, and daughters/granddaughters.

This is not about what happened to me at the college. I am done there and the school will not miss me. It is a good school but it is changing like all colleges. Focus rather on the real issue of stopping the insanity that endangers the women and girls that we care about in our lives.
Such views will be silenced by the “tolerant” Left in their quest for total power.
