Texas -Shredding Obama’s Transgender Policy, Fighting Tyranny
Obama planned to have the DOJ/DOE issue a letter/EO/decree which will warn every school district in the country that they have to open their bathrooms up to transgenders or risk lawsuits and lose funding. The letter has no “force of law”… but one Texas school superintendent is NOT happy.
“I got news for President Barack Obama. He ain’t my President and he can’t tell me what to do. That letter (to be released to all public schools tomorrow) is going straight to the paper shredder. I have 5 daughters myself and I have 2,500 girls in my protection. Their moms and dads expect me to protect them. And that is what I am going to do. Now I don’t want them bullied… but there are accommodations that can be made short of this. He (President Obama) is destroying the very fiber of this country. He is not a leader. He is a failure.” Port Neches-Groves Superintendent Dr. Rodney Cavness
You just have to love it when someone says what you’re thinking, don’tcha?
Though the letter will not be legally binding, it is a threat signed by officials at the Department of Justice and the Department of Education.
Texas has stood up to the transgender policy in several areas, not just the Obama letter. Their Attorney General, Ken Paxton, “fired off” a letter to the Fort Worth Independent School District, (whose Superintendent unilaterally published a Transgender Policy for students that was not enacted by the school board) advising them that their transgender policy in the schools may violate parental rights, not to mention be unconstitutional.
“In short, only Congress—not an agency—has the constitutional authority to impose restrictions on States that receive federal funds…The term ‘gender identity’ is nowhere in Title IX. And the policy admits that it is a federal agency that is attempting to read that phrase into the statute, which it lacks the constitutional authority to do. We sincerely hope you will access these deficiencies in the transgender policy and more as the board deliberates its next steps.” Ken Paxton
Texas Lt. Gov Dan Patrick has called for Dr. Kent Paredes Scribner, the Fort Worth Superintendent’s resignation.
It would appear that Texas is hunkering down and fighting back, once again resisting tyranny, as they have in the past. Hopefully, this time they will not be standing alone. Remember the Alamo!
“For Texans, the Battle of the Alamo became an enduring symbol of their heroic resistance to oppression and their struggle for independence, which they won later that year.”
