Always Punch The Nazis, Part Infinity

Indiana Jones say, “Always punch the Nazi”

Imma bad blogger and I am going to cut and paste this item from last nights Pod Save What Evs email thingie (emphasis mine, howevs):

All roads of America’s creeping fascism lead to Florida. A GOP-proposed bill making its way through the state’s legislaturewould allow courts to take “emergency” custody of children who received gender-affirming care, or even those who are deemed “at risk” of receiving such “prescriptions and procedures,” granting the court authority under the same statute that protects them from domestic violence and abuse.

Legalized kidnapping! Are we feeling “free” yet?? The bill defines sex-reassignment prescriptions or procedures to include hormone therapy, puberty blockers, and surgeries or procedures that “affirm a person’s perception of his or her sex if that perception is inconsistent with the person’s sex” at birth.

Senate Bill 254 would also make it legal for the court to seize custody of children whose parent or sibling is receiving gender-affirming care, even if they live in a different state.

Take a bow, once again: The “Party of Small Government”!!

That child-grabbing news followed the news that one of the speakers at CPAC —Daily Wire host Michael Knowles— has called for the eradication of transgenersisn (not a thing):

During his speech on Saturday, Knowles told the crowd, “For the good of society … transgenderism must be eradicated from public life entirely — the whole preposterous ideology, at every level.”

A more full excerpt:

In his speech, Knowles pushed an extremist position on public policy toward transgender individuals. “There can be no middle way in dealing with transgenderism. It can be all or nothing,” he said. “If transgenderism is true, if men really can become women, then it’s true for everybody of all ages. If transgenderism is false — as it is — if men really can’t become women — as they cannot — then it’s false for everybody too. And if it’s false, then we should not indulge it, especially when that indulgence requires taking away the rights and customs of many people. It if is false, then for the good of society — and especially for the good of the poor people who have fallen prey to this confusion — then transgenderism must be eradicated from public life entirely — the whole preposterous ideology, at every level.”

Knowles, of course, is trying desperately to claim that eradicating trans people was not what he said, or at least not what he meant. The article is really an eye opener because of his attempts to try to spin that:

Knowles subsequently claimed that “eradicating” “transgenderism” is not a call for eradicating transgender people and demanded retractions from numerous publications, including Rolling Stone

…“I called to ban transgenderism entirely … They said that I was calling for the extermination of transgender people. They said I was calling for a genocide … One, I don’t know how you could have a genocide of transgender people because genocide refers to genes, it refers to genetics, it refers to biology,” Knowles said, ahistorically.

“Nobody is calling to exterminate anybody, because the other problem with that statement is that transgender people is not a real ontological category — it’s not a legitimate category of being,” Knowles continued. “There are people who think that they are the wrong sex, but they are mistaken. They’re laboring under a delusion. And so we need to correct that delusion.”

That’s an alarming echo from the past. Change transgenderism to Judaism , and we’re right in the thick of it. Again, transgenderism is not a thing.

“‘Transgenderism’ is a phony term made up by anti-transgender activists and used to dehumanize transgender people and target them, their lifesaving healthcare, and access to society,” says Sarah Kate Ellis, the president and CEO of GLAAD. “Similar hate speech about ‘eradicating’ human beings has been used by extremists throughout history.”

It sure  has.

And so there we have it. Floriduh is going to legalize kidnapping kids, Texas has already advocated breaking up families, throwing the kids into the loving embrace of the foster child program and sending the parents to jail, Montana’s South Dakota’s* Kristi Norm is trying to force kids to transition back, it is an outright war on transpeople.

“First they came for transpeople…” and I punched the fucking Nazis because I know how the rest of the poem goes.

*We regret the error.

    Back in the day I was considered quite a puncher, but then there were no Nazis to speak of only a few thugs to deal with. Times have really changed haven’t they, when Nazis can strut around uninhibited displaying their hatred for the rest of the normal people…

    Any mention in the bill about what they are going to do with the children once they take them. I know a lot of Florida parents desperately need affordable child care but I don’t think this is the best way to go about it.

    “…then transgenderism must be eradicated from public life entirely — the whole preposterous ideology, at every level.”

    What I heard was …”…then for the good of the poor people, poor people must be eradicated from public life entirely — the whole preposterous ideology, at every level.”

    I mean if he believes that poor people have been hornswoggled (spellcheck says-boondoggled for your hornswoggled) “…and especially for the good of the poor people who have fallen prey to this confusion…” Then it would indicate according to Mr. -I never met a Nazi I didn’t like-Knowles, poor people are part of his “transgenderism must be eradicated from public life entirely…” problem. With the wave of the wand, presto-change-o and we’re right back to “First they came for…” And they are off and running to include everybody they don’t like under the umbrella “Eradicate somebody from something and then start adding all the rest with a rousing “It’s the Nazi way” in the same voice as Mr. Connery’s when in the movie “The Untouchables” he says “The Chicago way.”

    I state the obvious with too many words, but sometimes redundancy is the only way to understand.
