Thank you, Senator Cruz.
It seems ridiculous that we should have to say “Thank you” to someone for simply standing up for what has otherwise been universally known as commonsense practice for ages, but this is the world we’re now living in.
Sadly, commonsense is no longer a flower that grows in everybody’s garden.
Donald Trump, from the field of thistle and ragweed he calls a brain, sided with social justice warriors and progressives everywhere today, when he agreed that allowing men to use the restrooms and locker rooms with women and girls was a grand idea.
It’s an issue that presents a stark contrast between the candidates.
Trump, from POLITICO:
“You know, there’s a big move to create new bathrooms. Problem with that is for transgender, that would be—first of all, I think that would be discriminatory in a certain way. That would be unbelievably expensive for businesses in the country. Leave it the way it is.”
Just to be clear, the issue was never about transgendered people. It began from broadly worded ordinances, like that of Charlotte, NC, which would have included men, in general, in this practice of using whatever restroom or shower room they desired. The LGBT community simply chose to make this about themselves, because, as is the progressive way, victimhood is so vogue!
Senator Cruz responded to the leftist idiocy of Trump at a rally in Frederick, Maryland:
“Grown adult men, strangers should not be alone in a bathroom with little girls. And that’s not conservative or liberal, that’s not Republican or Democrat, that’s basic common sense,” Cruz said at a rally in Maryland. “But you know a few months ago, Donald told us he could be the most politically correct person on Earth, and I guess he’s showing us what that looks like. I am waiting with anticipation for the new baseball caps: Make PC Great Again.”
Cruz may have a vested interest in the issue, as the father of two small girls.
Truthfully, any who have daughters, nieces, wives, girlfriends, or just women in their lives they care about, at all, should be particularly concerned about this issue, because, as recent developments have shown, there are people with ill intent who will take advantage of any opening. The world is full of people willing to do harm to others. The solution is not to make their goals easier for them, then call it “tolerance.”
So, again, thank you, Senator Cruz, for calling this politically correct garbage for what it is. Thank you for giving a clear contrast between conservatism and the thinly-veiled progressive rhetoric of Trump and his fanatics.
I’ve long since lost hope that there is anything that can sway the truly entrenched Trumpidian loyalists to the fact that this man and his leftist ideology are a danger to our nation, but maybe there are some on the fence out there who can be rescued from the sickness of Trumpism.
Keep pounding the facts home, Senator.
