Former President Barack Obama had an unhealthy obsession late in his lame duck term with the plight of transgendered Americans.
Now, mind you, there was little fanfare or hoopla emanating from this fringe piece of the LGBTQ community. Transgendered people in the U.S. were quietly living their lives, however they saw fit, and finding like-minded individuals to help advance causes near and dear to their hearts.
Then, shortly after Caitlyn Jenner emerged from the cosmetic surgery cocoon that Bruce Jenner created, Obama seemed to dive directly into the deep end of this complicated and often private issue with a gusto that soon thrust all Americans facing gender identity issues unfairly into the nation, spotlight. Soon, the former President was decreeing that all public school bathrooms would be immediately gender neutral, sparking a debate about the sexual safety of our children that the transgender community never wanted to be a part of.
Now, the mass hysteria surrounding the transgender issues that Americans face has mutated into something far more intrusive to our national cultural identity, as a number of liberal lunatics push a total revision of our nation’s common sense in order to accommodate a group who never asked for such an intrusive spotlight.
“Students at an elementary school in Mesa, Arizona, were forced to recite a ‘gender neutral’ revision of the Declaration of Independence, local news reports.
“The mother of a Salk Elementary School fourth grade student complained to administrators after learning her child’s teacher transformed the historic document to substitute the word ‘human’ in areas where the Founding Fathers wrote ‘man.’
“The students were then told to recite the revised edition.
“The student’s mother, Elizabeth Vaillencourt, took to social media to complain about the teacher injecting her politics, which school officials claimed ‘hurt the teacher’s feelings.’
“’I was hurt. I was mortified. I was disturbed at the fact that somebody is changing historical documents and nobody has the right to change our historical documents,’ Vaillencourt told ABC affiliate KGUN9.com. ‘You teach what’s written. You don’t get to rewrite it and teach it how you feel you believe.’”
This is just a small piece of the historical revisionist puzzle that has been emerging in modern day America.
There is a bizarre liberal ideology that believes history is meant to be ignored or rewritten if it is found to be offensive to modern day man. This has led to a number of constitutional arguments, specifically regarding the First Amendment’s protection of free speech. If the left is allowed to revise history to reflect their own political agenda, will the rest of the nation lose their ability to speak freely about the true nature of historical events?
