Joe Biden and the far-left have made “wokeness” on issues like the fair treatment of women and the LGBT agenda key to their plan to fundamentally transform the United States of America (H/T Barack Obama), but recent incidents involving Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) and her objection to Biden’s big-government ambitions shows us how misogyny and homophobia are OK if it advances his agenda.
Earlier this month, Biden hypocritically defended the aggressive tactics of activists trying to pressure Sinema into backing his $3.5 trillion reconciliation package, telling reporters that the confrontations are simply “part of the process.”
Activists had disrupted Sinema’s lecture at Arizona State University and followed her into the bathroom, filming outside the stall she was using while shouting questions at her, and when Biden was asked about the incident, he said that kind of harassment “happens to everybody.”
“I don’t think they’re appropriate tactics, but it happens to everybody from the — the only people it doesn’t happen to are people who have Secret Service standing around them. So, it’s — it’s part of the process.”
Biden’s misogyny towards Kyrsten Sinema was clearly obvious according to Peggy Noonan in a Wall Street Journal opinion piece:
His statement on Sen. Kyrsten Sinema being harassed in a ladies’ room by activists who hissed like the devil’s imps was wan and passive-aggressive: “I don’t think they’re appropriate tactics, but it happens to everybody. . . . It’s part of the process.” It doesn’t happen to everybody and to announce it is part of the process is to make it part of the process. It was as if he were saying: Yeah, she’s got me mad. Hound her some more.
This past Friday, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki defended Biden’s misogyny and tried to convince America that Uncle Joe didn’t say what he literally said about Kyrsten Sinema, that it was not a legitimate part of the process, that it doesn’t happen to everyone, and that it shouldn’t happen to anyone (via National Review):
“I talked to the President about this, maybe two days ago — it’s all running together; in the last few days, I would say — and what he conveyed very clearly — just in case there’s any confusion about where he stands — is that, while, of course, we all agree — and as Senator Sinema said herself — the right to free speech and to protest is sacred to our country, he believes that what happened to her crossed the line and was absolutely unacceptable and flat out wrong to violate someone’s personal space in a bathroom. It doesn’t need to happen that way. We can peacefully protest without it crossing that line.
“So that continues to be his point of view.”
Apparently Biden meant to say, “absolutely unacceptable and flat out wrong” and it just happened to accidentally come out, “it happens to everybody. . . . It’s part of the process.”
With Biden taking care of misogyny, the Gay Mafia, as Bill Maher once called it, engaged in a little homophobia in order to “take out” Kyrsten Sinema — the first openly bisexual Senator — for not supporting Biden’s big government agenda, and for refusing to support filibuster reform in order to make it easier for the far-left to pass the pro-LGBT/anti-religious liberty Equality Act — legislation that codifies the LGBT agenda by revising the Civil Rights Act.
In a recent commentary posted on LGBTQ Nation, Kyrsten Sinema was attacked by a writer using language that most likely would be labeled an example of homophobia if it were written by someone opposed to the LGBT agenda:
Sinema has revealed herself to be a politician with no fixed principles and a captive of special interest money, someone who prefers display over delivery and a willingness to abandon her constituents, especially the LGBTQ community. On top of everything else, her posturing promises to tank President Biden’s agenda and thus ensure the return of Republicans to power not only in Congress but in the White House.
Sinema is infuriating the Democratic base that she should be placating. The Arizona Democratic party overwhelmingly passed a resolution condemning Sinema for her obstinacy. One third of Democrats in a recent poll said that they had an unfavorable view of her.
Meanwhile, no one is happier with Sinema than the far right and special interests. Sinema has been praised by the likes of anti-LGBTQ former Senator Rick Santorum for tanking filibuster reform.
And why shouldn’t Republicans and the far right be happy with Sinema? She helped to sink the Equality Act by refusing to sign onto filibuster reform, thereby betraying the LGBTQ community she claims to support.
Ironically, faux-conservative Republicans are accused of engaging in misogyny and homophobia even though they support the far-left agenda of their Democrat counterparts.
For example, in one of Trump’s first actions as president, he and Ivanka reaffirmed an Obama-era executive order legalizing discrimination against faith-based businesses by requiring government contractors to embrace the LGBT agenda or lose their right to do business with the federal government. Shortly afterwards, Mike Pence — who has a history of his own when it comes to caving to the Gay Mafia — came to the rescue and defended Trump’s pro-LGBT order.
During his presidency, Trump launched an effort aimed at ending the criminalization of homosexuality across the globe; using America’s leadership position as a platform to “decriminalize” homosexuality worldwide. Former U.S. Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell, the highest-profile openly gay person in the Trump administration, led the effort and defended LGBT deviancy as “God’s truth” in an editorial written for Bild, a German tabloid newspaper:
“While a student at Evangel University, a Christian liberal arts college in Missouri, I was taught by biblical scholars that all truth is God’s truth, no matter where it is found. The truth for LGBT people is that we were born gay.”
“Conservative” LGBT activists were also at work in Congress during the Trump presidency.
When the Equality Act was first introduced in 2019, faux conservatives offered an alternative to the Fairness for All Act. Their alternative still amended the Civil Rights Act using the same language found in the Equality Act, but it allegedly protected the convictions of religious organizations, healthcare providers, and employers with 15 employees or less.
Fair treatment of women and advancing the LGBT agenda are the bread and butter of Joe Biden and the Far-Left, but when it comes to making a choice between these priorities and advancing their agenda, what’s a little misogyny and homophobia among friends if it means getting Kyrsten Sinema to see things their way?
