Trump's Transgender Ban

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY AUGUST 30, 2017

         PRESIDENT TRUMP IS WITHIN HIS AUTHORITY AS COMMANDER IN CHIEF TO BAR TRANSGENDER PEOPLE FROM SERVING IN THE U.S. MILITARY. THAT INCLUDES FORCING TAXPAYERS TO UNDERWRITE THE COST OF SEX REASSIGNMENT SURGERY.

         THE SECULAR LEFT PREDICTBALY OPPOSED HIS ORDER. THE TRANSGENDER ISSUE IS ANOTHER ATTEMPT BY THEM TO FINISH DESTROYING WHAT REMAINS OF THE NATION’S MORAL UNDERPINNINGS.

         THERE ARE MANY REASONS FOR DENYING ENTRY INTO THE MILITARY, SUCH AS: A CRIMINAL RECORD, INCLUDING CONCEALMENT OF AN ARREST RECORD, ENTRY LEVEL PERFORMANCE OR CONDUCT, FRAUDULENT ENTRY, FAILURE TO MEET WEIGHT OR HEIGHT STANDARDS, PERSONALITY DISORDER, MISCONDUCT, UNSATISFACTORY PERFORMANCE, UNFITNESS AND UNSUITABILITY – THE LATTER OF WHICH MAY BE OPEN TO INTERPRETATION.

         AS MANY OTHERS HAVE NOTED, THE U.S. MILITARY IS NOT A PLACE FOR SOCIAL EXPERIMENTATION. IT IS WHERE PEOPLE ARE TRAINED TO FIGHT TO DEFEND OUR FREEDOMS. UNIT COHESION IS A BIG PART OF THAT. THERE HAVE BEEN ENOUGH ASSAULTS ON COMMON SENSE IN RECENT YEARS. MAYBE THAT’S WHY WE ARE HAVING TROUBLE WINNING WARS. WE DON’T NEED TRANSGENDERS ADDING TO THE PROBLEM. I’M CAL THOMAS IN WASHINGTON.
