Sanders responds to trans group questionnaire — but not Clinton

A newly formed pro-transgender political action committee has sent out a questionnaire to each of the major 2016 presidential candidates — but only Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders has responded.

The Trans United Fund, launched in April with the goal of building the transgender community’s political power, sent out a questionnaire to campaigns for both Hillary Clinton and Sanders. Although the Clinton campaign initially signaled it would answer the questions, the campaign has yet to return the questionnaire, the committee says.

Monica Roberts, a Houston-based advisory member of the Trans United Fund presidential endorsement committee, chided Clinton for neglecting to respond to the survey, saying off-the-record commitments from political candidates on trans rights are no longer sufficient.

“We believe that the secretary is a champion on trans rights issues and are perplexed by the campaign’s reluctance to follow through and go on the record with stating that commitment,” Roberts said. “We believe it’s important – not just for us – but also for our community, our allies and the people like myself who enthusiastically voted for you in the various primary contests – to have the benefit of responses from both candidates.”

The 15-page questionnaire prepared for the candidates covers a range of transgender issues, seeking candidate’s positions on transgender employment as well as access to transition-related health care, education and housing.

In his responses, Sanders affirms support for trans rights in each of these areas. Additionally, he volunteers a proposed executive order requiring all federal employees to have access to workplace facilities consistent with their gender identity and to establish an interagency working group to increase opportunities for the trans community.

The candidate also recommits himself to fighting HIV/AIDS in response to questions on the epidemic and pledges to work to reform state HIV criminalization laws, which to varying degree penalize the transfer of HIV.

Sanders identifies as his greatest achievement for transgender people his role in enacting the Affordable Care Act, which he says secured $11 billion to expand the network of Federally Qualified Health Centers to assist minority communities like transgender people.

But Sanders didn’t respond to all of the questions. One on whether he has employed a transgender person to work for him in a government and business context, and another on whether he supports the legalization of sex work were left unanswered.

Many of Sanders’ answers reflect his responses during an interview last year with the Washington Blade in which he promised to make transgender people visible in his administration and became the first presidential candidate to endorse openly transgender military service.

It’s unclear why the Clinton campaign didn’t respond to the questions. The Clinton campaign didn’t respond to the Washington Blade’s request to provide an explanation for why responses weren’t returned.

Bamby Salcedo, advisory member of the Trans United Fund presidential endorsement committee, echoed the call for the Clinton campaign to complete the questionnaire.

“The trans community is under attack, and in order for us to make a credible, and impactful endorsement, we need a commitment from our leaders on issues that make life or death differences for trans people,” Salcedo said. “That is why we created a survey that included key issues like violence and HIV as well as non-discrimination and bullying. We believe – and we believe the secretary believes – that these are political issues. And that’s why we’re holding firm that both candidates should honor their commitment to complete the questionnaire and let our community and our allies know where they stand.”

In her LGBT platform, Clinton says she’ll make trans issues a priority, including protecting transgender people from violence, streamlining identity documents and investing in law enforcement training for interactions with LGBT people. Clinton also made HIV/AIDS a prominent component of her campaign, has met with HIV/AIDS activists and has called for end to HIV criminalization laws.

The Trans United Fund also sent a questionnaire to presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. According to the political action committee, Trump also didn’t respond to the questionnaire.

  • Should be easy for a chameleon like Hillary to answer questions about transgender. The question is, will they hold her feet to the fire? Not.

    • Hillary is smart. She has always been a good politician. She will mold and change at a moments notice to assure she wins. Independents and conservatives don’t really want to see the issue of where someone pees on headline news nor do they want someones gender identity making them feel uncomfortable. I doubt she will respond.

      • Its not about comfort, its just that on the list of priorities its on page 5000 and we just don’t give rip! The politicians aided by the media are bringing up topics that are not even on the scope of our concerns, balanced budget, economic prosperity, paying down the debt and just getting government and politicians out of our life and way so that we can work hard and prosper.

      • Hillary may have a high IQ, but she is embarrassingly lacking in EQ.

  • Bill likes real women and with that Hillary must obey her husband’s wishes as she had done loyally for 50 years.

  • Lol they prob want a commitment signed in blood.

  • Let’s see…the “Trans” community comprises about .03% of the population — yes, math challenged readers, that is 3 ONE HUNDREDTHS of ONE PERCENT of the U.S. population. It will be interesting to see how much “political power” this group can wield.

    Next, the One Armed Armadillo Eaters Anonymous club will be circulating “questionnaires,” closely followed by “demands.”

    • You would be surprised. I am gay. I enjoy playing conservative on my facebook and watching them squirm. One fundamental trait of a liberal is they think with their emotions not logic. They think in terms of fairness not competitiveness. They want everyone to have equal loaves of bread not reward those that worked hardest with bigger shares. The gay population is no exception and perhaps worse with the emotional ties. You see the more a person has felt abandoned, made fun of, discriminated against, abused, and all the additional adjectives relating, they begin to think with emotion. Everything becomes a matter of resolving negative emotions at any cost. They know so little about the facts or why the believe a certain way. Democrats know this truth so they give them tools. These tools are words like biggot, racist, hate, discrimination. If you wish to test my little theory go online and approach any of them. Ask them why they think a certain way or why Obama is such a great president? They will have nothing logical or well thoughtout to say. Instead they will become mad like a cornered dog and throw out their propaganda words. This had led to even the smallest groups have political power. Because as soon as someone wants attention in the community for any demographic they just throw out those words and everyone drops what they are doing to support them.

      • Curmudgeon10 is right. The trans group will find that it has become Cister Souljah for Slick Hillary this year.

      • Liberals are incapable of “playing conservative”. We spot fools like you from a mile away.

        • I am an independent thank you. You should tone down your extremism because true republican extremists are a dying breed. In 10 to 20 years half your populace will be dead of old age. You need to embrace the middle or expect liberals to bring socialism to your plate.

          • You said you “play conservative” and I’m not a Republican.

            The idea that my traditional American values are extreme and your fringe values are mainstream is beyond laughable.

            I don’t care who you screw, but you need help for your liberalism.

          • Pathetic nasty- faced hoe

          • Demoncratic senators average 15 years older than GOP senators. Sorry, but facts suggest (I know, those pesky things) that peak progressivism is now.

          • Good point. Hopefully, they will not be replaced with younger versions of themselves. I will celebrate the day I hear that Harry Reed has died. A truly evil man who has worked tirelessly to push the far left progressive agenda. He has been the one essential person that has protected and facilitated all the actions of the president. He and Obama have done an enormous amount of damage to the federal government and the country.

          • Hopefully the next time Reid’s exercise equipment attacks him it will be a fatal knockout.

          • Exactly, just look how old and beat down the two Donkeys are vying for the losers position.

          • Not being affiliated with a particular party does not mean you are not a liberal….case in point, Bernie.

          • You sound like an ignorant child with that old talking point. If you want to talk about an old and and dying ideology it’s the libs. That’s why they are a tiny minority party and conservatives control both houses, the majority of the governorships and the majority of state legislatures. Your dying breed will get the final flush this November. Remember (D) is for donkey but (I) is for Idiots.

          • And there you go, on the attack. You’re a poser.

          • I’m independent and find myself the same as I was in my 30’s. Problem is; I haven’t changed and it appears I keep getting labeled right-wing extremists as of late for supporting the constitution, freedom, self dependence and smaller government with less red-tape starting a business…. And oh boy is it tough starting a business without financial backing. It wasn’t always this hard.

          • Amen brother, the wackos leftists are in charge……Legalized pedophilia is next.

          • NAMBLA has been trying for decades to be normalized. I’m afraid you’re right.

          • Behind the curve here Chris, the social change started big time w/our military when don’t ask don’t tell was changed!!…………

          • That’s where you’re wrong, to paraphrase Winston Churchill, show me a man at twenty who’s not a liberal and I’ll show you someone with no heart, show me a man over forty who’s a liberal and I’ll show you a fool. Conservatives are being created daily from people who where liberals in their youth, they’ve just matured. You don’t seriously think the twenty somethings will remain twenty somethings their whole lives do you?

          • Lots of luck, sucker.

          • There are very few “republican extremists” now, but about 60% of Democrats are extremists. How else would a criminal like Hillary be their only viable nominee? Oh, and lose this myth that “extremists” are people who you don’t agree with. Makes you look an idiot.

        • Chris gave a well-thought-out, detailed, objective opinion, and this is what you throw back at him? How about a hearty THANK YOU to Chris for not being led like a sheep to slaughter by those who demand he think and act a certain way!

          • AND A hearty thank you Brian for the puppies, unicorn & rainbows!!…………………

          • Lol. I too have to be a bit annoyed by the children among us on the right lol but then I look at the left demanding wide open borders and uncontrolled immigration. I also look at the left proud of the use of violence to attempt to shut down political events and they still having the temerity to call the right fascist.

            So as a bisexual I tolerate the children because there are bigger issues here.

          • You seem bi-political too.

          • Lol. Libertarian leaning folks and constitutional types sometimes appear bi.

            I can assure you the left classifies me as a racist misogynist bigot who speaks in dogwhistles

          • We should thank him for not being stupid? Na. We should only say good job.

      • chris, seriously, i appreciate your description of what the US is dealing with when the various liberal groups act the way they do. I may be a redneck but I do see what you are talking about and now understand the issues a little bit clearer.

        BUT I do like the one armed armadillo eaters anonymous statement by curmudgeon10!

      • I agree with your points. But we should all try to avoid making this and other issues battles of understanding, facts, wisdom or anything else. We have a constitution for the purpose of keeping the totalitarians off our backs. Many of the issues are pre-determined or at least left to the states. The state and local level of governing is more responsive to community standards and the will of the people. You know, governments derive their power from the consent of the governed, not some dictatorial fiat of an executive in chief, a bureaucratic chief, or an unseen and unaccountable regulator. The difference between any of our points of view and that of the government is that only government can compel with law. The law is powerful, with unlimited resources. If the law is “lawless,” unbound by any principles, we have a problem. Private individuals have only the strength of our arguments. It’s an unequal match. That’s why when Obama acts independent of the constitution or the congress — he’s being completely destructive of the system — and he is manifestly a tyrant.

      • I am also gay and am tired of all this pandering to these small groups. Gays are so stupid to be caught up in this leftist practice of identifying groups to use for their own political purpose. I resent being used and want no part of it.

        • The correct adjective is queer!

        • You are correct as no one likes to be used, but special interest groups latch on now and we see the consequences of the division of our country!…………..

          • While your observations of use and abuse is all nice and logical you have overlooked one thing,.. a solution. Just stopping the pandering to over-emotional, non-thinking small groups does not help them because they are under-educated by the government as well and probably incapable of ever rationalizing their existence without the aide of the government.

        • You should learn your history, because if you did, you’d know that “this small group” handed the queer community the Stonewall uprising. Ever wonder why June is Pride month? Do some research and learn your history (and don’t waste your time on Hollywood’s whitewashed version of those events). Want no part of it? Then hand in the right to get married, along with the 1,138 Federal rights and uncounted State rights that went with it. Hand over what jobs protections you have, Let go of the dignity the movement has given you. Grow up young man.

          • I don’t know….Drag queens and cross dressers are different from people claiming gender dysphoria.

          • In the sixties, no distinction was made between transgender people and drag queens. Transgender individuals were often classified as drag queens. Sylvia Rivera, who is generally credited with starting the uprising was actually transgender. At the time she was referred to as a drag queen.

          • So invading women spaces and infringing on children is okay. This effort has a goal of replacing minorities and women
            Open the men’s room to whomever and leave the women alone
            Of course the women and children did not give large sums of money to the democratic party but a Transgender women did.(man)

          • How can a woman invade a woman’s space? You’ll have to explain that one to me, unless you are insinuating that you just don’t want CERTAIN women in women’s spaces with YOU. In that case, I would call you a bigot. You obviously have never taken the time to get to know a transperson and understand what they go through. It’s all about you and your prejudices.

        • For self preservation you best vote conservative. Liberals, progressives and democrats will throw you to the islamic wolves. You might not like all their views, but you’ll be alive.

        • Especially if you’re a woman or of the LBGT community you should panic now, before the rush:

          They are successfully importing it into the USA to destroy it from within.

        • Agreed. The majority normal gay dudes have to be represented by queeny, “yaaaaas” repeating idiots. The reason gays get caught up in the leftist practice as you say is because most of them feel rejected, discriminated against, abandoned, ect. These experiences cause people to think with their emotions. They lose all logic.

      • The correct adjective is queer!

      • You ENJOY PLAYING CONSERVATIVE on facebook? Why lie?

      • The left is out for one thing only, self interest.

      • You are not ‘gay’; you are a pervert.

      • Good points. It’s not logic that drives them and facts can’t convince them. I really think that liberalism is a mental disorder as if fully developed, would cause a cessation of the very things that allow it to thrive.

      • Awesome post, Chris! Glad you are on the side of sanity.

      • Dude that is absolutely a brilliant comment and I rarely say that! I’m a conservative. Hetro, barely pro choice, pro gay marriage, pro-capitalism guy. The second you say conservative you’re hated on. The other typical move is to act as if their point is so incredibly self evident. Most Americans are pretty fair but the political parties win when they make American’s fight and they’ve done a masterful job as people hate on sight with ease right now and we’ve been manipulated like puppets.

      • Best well thought and spot-on opinion. Both sides should be reading Chris’s comment.

      • The key element you left out is that they want to be in charge of the distribution of the loaves of bread and of everything else. Their world vision requires “them” to be in charge because achieving it requires transforming the very nature of human beings from their natural inclinations to Eloi.

        Remember this when you vote (if there is even an election by that time) Who is the ONLY one talking about this invasion jihad?

      • There are plenty of gay people who are true conservatives, this is because being gay has no bearing on doing what is right. Treat people with respect, work hard and save your money, educate yourself, make the best decisions you can, help one another. These are all conservative values and apply to gay and straight alike.

      • You lost me at “my Facebook”

      • So you ADMIT you are Communist, a liar and bent on destroying America. No wonder you love Hussein Hamas Obama so much.

      • I’m gay, and used to be a conservative and voted Republican. However, not because of any political rhetoric, I’ve became a leftie liberal. Why? Because I believe all people should be treated fairly under the law. I do believe some people need a hand from those of us who have more. I believe those blessed with financial wealth should pay their share of taxes. Why? Because I’ve seen how Republican policies have actually negatively affected this country, and how much poorer we all are for it. And before you tell me I’m just looking to stick it to the rich and want the government to give me free stuff, I’ll point out that I am in the top 16% of income earners in this country.

        • Why not just enforce the Rule of Law, and go back to the limited government like the Founding Fathers established? Government need not be in the charity business. The Church took care of that for ages and it worked fine.

          • Republicans today don’t seem to be for limited government. They seem to want to regulate women and their bodies, and regulate public bathrooms. And sadly, many people do not have as much disposable income to donate to their churches as in years past, and church attendance is declining. That is why many churches cannot pick up the slack. I know, as our church does what it can, but it’s a struggle to even keep the doors open. We’ve had to pick and choose which people we can help outside the church. Our main focus is on the homeless and the hungry. But a church of 40 people, most of whom are retirees without huge nest eggs, we can’t do much.

          • I wasn’t speaking about Republicans, per se. But to become a “leftie liberal” – your words, not mine. Where has socialism worked?

          • Social Security. Medicare/Medicaid, Disability. The Military. Infrastructure. Public libraries. Police and Fire Departments, to name just a few democratic socialist programs working right here in the United States. The Swedes, Canadians, and the French don’t seem to be doing too bad with some democratic socialist programs there, either.

          • I never said all .gov programs are bad. There is a purpose for even a limited government. I would hesitate to call the items you listed “socialism”, though.

            However, unless Sweden and France radically change their immigration, labor laws and politically correct speech, they are virtually done as the countries we have known. Honestly, with that idiot Justin Trudeau aboard, I expect Canada to follow in France and Sweden’s footsteps.

            I must say, as far as I know, you are the first person I am aware of that has gone form conservative to “leftie liberal”. Perhaps we will have to agree to disagree.

          • No, it didn’t work fine, which is why the government-based safety net replaced it.

          • I think you are sadly mistaken. One of the big reasons the Catholic Church supported .gov charity is because they would not have to run their Catholic charity hospitals. Pure and simple greed.

    • I don’t believe even that number for a second. There’s no way that 90,000 freaks have cut off their schlongs, the real number is about 100.

    • Yup. “Identifying as a transgender” isn’t even a real thing. More libturd gobbledygook.

      Yet Bolshevik Bernie is happy to pander to these .03%…

      • It’s that liberal “identity politics” the Democrats have been pushing for decades. Remember to vote for Trump in November or you’ll have this crap stuffed down your throat for another eight years.

      • Shoelace Von Hitlerpants

        “Yet Bolshevik Bernie is happy to pander to these .03%…”
        to be fair he probably only gets 2/3 of them, the rest feel they have to vote for Hiliary because she was

        a) born a woman
        b) hasn’t changed, and
        c) barely looks it.

    • The power and influence of the transgenders is entirely disproportionate to their numbers. The issue isn’t about them or their emotional security or “civil rights.”As with all minority groups who can make some tortured claim to discrimination the issue of transgender rights is really not about them at all. It’s about government power, but on an entirely new scale. Transgenders are willingly being used by a totalitarian government that is in the process of establishing further expansion of its absolute and total control. They not only want to control all our activities and speech but all our thoughts. They’re trying to establish that what is true, what is right, what is real — is what they say it is. Forget logic, science, religion and common sense. The only truth is what the bosses in DC say it is. It’s an advanced killer wave of complete relativism and a dictatorship of the left.

    • DEMOC RATS ARE SICK TWISTED MENTALLY DERANGED FOOLS WHO WILL CATER AND BOW TO A RATTLE SNAKE FOR ONE VOTE

    • RLS1024, Druid - American

      “3 ONE HUNDREDTHS of ONE PERCENT”

      Lets see…. you could probably get them all into a VW Beetle so they could drive to Target for dress shopping.

    • It is not the “trans” loonies themselves who are pushing this nonsense.

      It is the globalists, Marxists, and the usual unmentionable nation-wrecking cabal and their brainwashed zombies.

      The trannies are just this cabal’s latest pretext for nation wrecking.

    • It’s actually .002 (low female rate)-.014(high male rate) % depending on the country according to the DSM

      But it’s growing in the west. The number of children who developed gender dysphoria has increased 10x in just the last 6 years. It’s an epidemic

      • Schools are encouraging both parents and teachers to encourage their children to “experiment”. Hormone treatments are given to 11 year olds. This is making a mess of the country. There is no rational basis for this idiocy. It’s entirely a subversive-academic driven phenomenon.

    • Don’t underetimate the mentally ill. Look what a tiny 1.6% of the population was able to accomplish with enough lawyers, corrrupt judges and politicians. 98.4% of the population said no to gay marriage. They even voted to make banning it part of their state’s constitution and look what happened.

    • Those One Armed Armadillo Eaters have found out that armadillos carry the bacterium for leprosy. They are all seeking treatment as we speak, antibiotics to clear that mess up. Don’t eat the armadillo, don’t get the leprosy. And, no, making barbecue with the armadillo does not make it safe to eat. That’s for you folks in Texas and Florida.

    • “Next, the One Armed Armadillo Eaters Anonymous club will be circulating “questionnaires,” closely followed by “demands.”…”

      WAIT! Are they one armed PEOPLE who eat Armadillos or just ANY people who eat one armed armadillos?

      NO MATTER ! How can I join?!?

      Everyone should find their minority group !

    • Don’t forget the one-eyed, one-horned, purple people eaters. (Golden oldie from 1958 or so.)

    • I wanna marry my cat! Seriously!

    • Go ahead,make fun of us, but hear me,we OAAEA’s will be heard!

    • Yes, a TINY fraction of our population belongs in this DEVIANT group. Yet they bark and yap like they’re something special, and as if it’s about 1/3 of our population. Just move to an island….PLEASE.

    • Curmudge, I’m surprised you’re so uninformed on transgender (and LGBT) political power. You should try to catch up with LGBT news more often.

      This newbie group notwithstanding, transphobic bigots and hate mongers– especially in southern and midwest red states– are compelling lots of trans political pushback for trans civil rights, in particular– and LGB civil rights in general.

      I don’t think you understand sexual minorities’ struggles for fundamental civil rights and nondiscrimination. It is not about numeric strength at all for LGBTs. It is much more about our will, persistence. and the rightness of our causes.

      LGBTs never give up fighting transphobic and homophobic bigotry and discrimination. How can we?

      • I am not uninformed. Other posters here tell me that “trans” rights are the same as “gay” rights….my question concerns why the “trans” “community” feels it must have separate political operation, and yes, I do mock the notion that a population representing about .03% of the gen pop is ever going to wield any significant political power ON ITS OWN. For instance, HRC just gave this new group-anxious-for-recognition-as-a-political-force the middle finger. So what do they do? Work to make sure she isn’t elected? It’s all quite silly.

    • That minuscule group that you mock is the very same minuscule group that handed the queer community the Stonewall uprising and gave needed traction to the entire gay rights movement. Queer leaders also know that if you can fix trans issues in society, you fix gay issues as well. Mock them if you wish, but at your own peril. They are a small, but cherished and needed part of the community.

    • But you have to consider our current Neo American Leadership …The End Is Near

      Are we connecting the dots? (I can’t do it in a simple sound bite)

      ‘Christians stunned after Obama appoints THIS person to lead faith-based agency’
      Written by Derrick Wilburn on May 20, 2016

      Barack Obama has appointed a man who identifies as a woman to serve on his Advisory Council on Faith-Based Neighborhood Partnerships.

      Earlier this year we learned about Dr. Richard Levine, a man who ‘identifies as a woman’ as Pennsylvania’s new Physician General. Not to be outdone by a state, the Obama administration has kicked things up a notch with the appointment of a cross-dressing, gender-bending man of its own, but perhaps what’s more surprising than the “who” part of the appointment is the “to what.”

      Last Thursday the White House announced that the National LGBTQ Task Force’s Barbara Satin has been appointed to serve on President Obama’s Advisory Council on Faith-Based Neighborhood Partnerships.

      Its nothing short of amazing how far this president has come since his public affirmation of belief that marriage is between one man an one woman just a few years ago.

      ‘Barack Hussein Obama Accelerates His ’Emasculation Jihad’ On The U.S. Military’

      Saturday, May 21, 2016
      By Paul Martin

      The first non pilot with no air combat command experience, promoted amid a drive for more diversity in the Pentagon.

      “A retired pilot said there is a reason the Air Force historically has put a pilot in charge of large combatant command Air Forces.

      “It is because you make operational decisions that require the understanding of what you are going to ask pilots to execute in combat where the wrong decisions mean the difference between life and death,” the retired pilot said.”

      “His military experience or lack thereof is irrelevant. He’s going to be in charge of the largest social experiment on the planet Earth: the U.S. Army.”

      ‘The First Openly Gay Army Secretary in U.S. History’

      The U.S. Senate confirmed the nomination of Eric Fanning to the top job.

      Excerpt:
      Obama also lost an opportunity to appoint an undocumented Army secretary. What better example could there be to the immigrant community of Obama’s support for them than an Army secretary who is one of their own? The Army secretary could immerse soldiers in Spanish language classes so they could acquaint themselves with our soon to be national language. He could also appoint Army generals newly arrived from Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador, countries whose citizens have been historically underrepresented in the top ranks of our military.

      Obama also could have picked an environmentalist to head the army. Imagine if we converted all our tanks to wind power. Think of how we could kill the enemy without increasing global warming! And what if our bombs were all solar-powered? We’d save a ton of money on explosives!

      And lastly, Obama, while picking a gay man, lost the chance to pick a transgender candidate. I think a man masquerading as a woman would have been a great choice. Transgender individuals would be perfect for manning (or personing!) our nuclear missile silos, since science has conclusively shown that transgender individuals are more stable than normal people.

      “That’s where we’ve come: an openly gay man is the secretary of the army while the founder of the Delta Force, because he disapproves of transgender bathrooms in North Carolina, is fired from teaching at a college,” she said. “It’s just amazing.” – Sandy Rios

      >>So here’s where it gets really confusing because we know lslam, women in charge of anything and the LBGT community don’t mix:

      “Barack Obama’s advisor on Muslim affairs, Dalia Mogahed, went on Islamic television with members of the radical Islamic group Hizb ut Tahrir and defended their blatant call for the overthrow of all “man-made law” — which includes the United States Constitution — and the adoption of Islamic Sharia law as “the source of legislation”:

      In December 2012, from an unlikely quarter: Egypt’s Rose El-Youssef magazine, which asserted that six highly-placed Muslim Brotherhood infiltrators within the Obama administration had transformed the United States “from a position hostile to Islamic groups and organizations in the world to the largest and most important supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood.”

      Barack H. Obama Foundation (BHOF) was established in 2008 by Abon’go Malik Obama, President Obama’s half-brother, a Kenyan-born Muslim with twelve wives. Abon’go Malik Obama is:
      •the overseer of the Muslim Brotherhood’s international investments;
      •the executive secretary of the Sudan-based Islamic Da’wa Organization (IDO), an organization primarily focused on expanding Wahhabist Islam on the African subcontinent; and
      •closely associated with Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir, a jihadist tyrant responsible for the deaths of more than three million people, all in the name of Jihad and war against Christians.

      Profiles of Islamists who have influenced, or have been appointed to positions within, the Obama administration. Also included in this section are a number of Islamists who have not officially been connected to the Obama administration, but who have had a significant influence on Obama’s thinking over the course of his life.

      * Abedin, Huma: Deputy Chief of Staff to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton
      * Abunimah, Ali: Vice president of the Arab American Action Network
      * Al-Hibri, Azizah: U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom
      * Al-Mansour, Khalid Abdullah Tariq: Patron of Obama during 1980s
      * Al-Marayati, Salam: Representative of the U.S. government at the annual Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe conference
      * Alikhan, Areef: Department of Homeland Security
      * Arab American Action Network: Received money from Woods Fund when Obama was board member of Woods Fund
      * Barack H. Obama Foundation: Headed by President Obama’s half-brother, who oversees the Muslim Brotherhood’s international investments
      * Asbahi, Mazen: National Coordinator for Muslim American Affairs (during 2008 presidential campaign)
      * Elibiary, Mohamed: Homeland Security Advisory Council
      * Husaini, Minha: National Coordinator for Muslim American Affairs (during 2008 presidential campaign)
      * Hussain, Rashad: Special Envoy to the Organization of the Islamic Conference
      * Khalidi, Rashid: Professor of Middle East Studies at Columbia University
      * Magid, Mohamed: Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Countering Violent Extremism Working Group
      * Mattson, Ingrid: Invited by Obama advisor to work on the White House Council on Women and Girls
      * Mogahed, Dalia: Advisory Council on Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships
      * Obama, Abon’go Malik: the older half-brother of Barack Obama
      * Patel, Eboo: Advisory Council on Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships
      * Said, Edward: Professor and Arab activist who was keynote speaker at 1998 fundraiser attended by Obama
      * Shora, Kareem: Homeland Security Advisory Council
      * Shora, Nawar: Senior Advisor to the Civil Rights and Liberties Office of the Transportation Security Administration

      Rashad Hussain, the U.S. special envoy to the Organization of the Islamic Conference. Hussain, who unsurprisingly, was named a Fellow to the Paul and Daisy SOROS Foundation in 2003. Paul SOROS is the older brother of George SOROS, a financial supporter of Barack Hussein OBAMA and a virulent anti-capitalist and globalist.

      Fox News reported to have “unearthed tapes” telling an audience that he favors the imposition of Islamic Sharia law on a global scale. What better position to hold than envoy to an organization with the very same objectives. Despite the controversy involving HUSSAIN, Barack HUSSEIN Obama is standing firm on his appointment.

      “Is Sharia an Obama goal? I don’t know, but he sure is appointing a lot of people that publicly call for the overthrow of the U. S. Constitution in favor of Sharia Law. Based on the fact that Obama is violating Article II, Section 1, Clause 5 of the U. S. Constitution on a daily basis, and appointing terrorists’ lawyers to the Justice Department, it’s not beyond the realm of possibility.”

      Gender Justice

      … and the ongoing, relentless, strategic Islamic seeding of American communities

      CNS News reports: The Obama administration has admitted 499 Syrian refugees so far this month, with no Christians among them. (this is just this month)

      Haven’t heard much from NASA’s ‘Muslim Outreach’ lately, remember this? NASA chief administrator Charles Bolden caused an uproar when he said outreach to the Muslim world might be his “foremost” priority.

    • The majority of people affected by anti-trans legislation are not trans people, but cisgender men and women (gay and straight) who don’t “pass” well enough to suit bigots.

    • They have a lot since they are stay men that are wealthy

      They using anti discrimination laws to circumvent human rights for children women and minorities. Their efforts will push women out of school and business

  • jpaq68 ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    Don’t worry, she’ll respond. There isn’t a special interest group out there so small that Hillary won’t eventually pander to.

    • Groups. Like the group of women who were attacked by, clinton and cosby? That would probably be a bigger group than these sick people.

  • Clinton has spent her entire life against the LGBT community and their march towards equality. Wake up.

  • To bad Bernie has no chance……he can run in 2020….

  • I’m voting for hillary cause she is supportive of me mutilating my genitals! And Bernie too! Everyone know THATs a real issue!

  • Hillary has probably has answered it more than once. But, her focus groups keep sending it back for fine tuning. Not offending anybody in any way is pretty much impossible in 2016. When Bill was Pres the Clintons did focus groups on where to take their vacation.

  • misadventures-of-Scatman

    LOL

  • Good for Trump. Legitimizing mental illness as a PAC is when you know the Liberals have jumped the shark.

      • Sooooo…. your ok with being spoon fed what you ‘need’ to know? And Fox could be compared to a super tanker, even after the engines stall it will still travel miles just from it’s momentum.

    • But her job is being a globalist gatekeeper shill. Time the people learn ALL of these “faces” are puppets promoting the agenda of enslavement regardless of what party they claim to support. Look at how much they disdain that liar Trump.

      If she dared questioned her masters, they would blacklist her (and do other things unfit to be spoken to her) and then replace her with another improperly dressed presstitute to preach their rhetoric of lies and disinformation.

  • It’s a smokescreen issue that the SJWs hide behind and use to push other parts of their agenda. So they bludgeon you with Trans-crap and then slip in other stuff once you agree to everything. Target has been doing much more than just the bathrooms. Have you noticed?

    What is happening in the USA is an Islamic infiltration and seizure of authority at all US federal agencies. Most Americans are totally oblivious to our new unfolding reality that is quietly, steadily, purposely and with increased momentum, taking control over all aspects of our country.

    When Obama said we are no longer a Christian nation, his intention is to insure it and enforce Sharia compliance and it is happening in a gradual but sustained manner (purposely without fanfare).

    The US federal government has been usurped by globalists and manufactured the chaos that is now in Europe.

    They are successfully importing it into the USA to destroy it from within.

    American citizens, along with the Russians and Chinese, are now the enemy of our own federal government.

  • SOCIALISM WILL PREVAIL!!!!

  • i think i want to join the trans group without cutting off my tallywacker or buying a set of stick on boobies. do you think they will let me?

    tulsabubba

    • Well since kids can’t cut off theirs and Obama just told schools that they have to let boys with fully functioning plumbing use the bathroom of their choice, I don’t see why adults can’t do the same. Heck you don’t even have to dress the part, just say you feel like a woman today.

    • Worked for Michelle.

  • If Obama had a son…he’d be p i s s i n g in a transgender restroom….

  • “Sanders…volunteers a proposed executive order requiring all federal employees to have access to workplace facilities consistent with their gender identity.” How can he justify restricting access to workplace facilities inconsistent with the employee’s gender identity? That’s just blatant discrimination.

  • LMAO the chickens are coming home to roost.

  • Transgender is the same thing as Trigender. A made up name to describe the loony behavior of democrats.

  • If there are 50 trannies per state that would be a lot. that would be 2600 in the country, or .000008, which seems plausible.

  • Happy Transgender Tuesday everyone .

  • Why should she respond to a group that should be institutionalized. TG is a psychological disorder and TG has no business having political clout.

  • I sexually identity as an attack helicopter. Where’s my landing pad at Target?

  • So, are heavy people in “trans groups” Transfats?

  • First, why do trans folks need id if illegals don’t?

    • Hah! Hahahaha!

    • BECAUSE A LOT OF THEM ARE WHITE-AND SOME OF THEM MAY BE CHRISTIANS(?), which means they don’t count COUNT!

      • Hmm, you seem to have a misunderstanding of what a true “christian” is. Those who claim to be trans/homosexual and those who support the trans/homosexual movement are no more of a “christian” than I am genetically a domesticated feline.

        Scripture very clearly tells the end of such individuals who condone, support, praise, and practice such abominations in Romans 1:32.

  • Second, It sounds like they are looking for subsidized healthcare for transitioning. Or did I miss something?

  • What sort of lunacy have we opened ourselves up to where a tiny minority of the population can try to dictate terms to us all? What will be next I wonder? Paedophiles “coming out” and asserting their right to recognition and equal treatment? Too late, they are already “out”, claiming they were “born this way” – sound familiar? It seems there is a pattern emerging.

  • 3rd If you want everybody to leave you alone, leave them alone.

  • I liked it better when we all used to ignore each other.

  • XX chromosomes = FEMALE
    XY chromosomes = MALE
    Give it up, trannies. You are either mutilating your minds, or mutilating your genitals, or mutilating both. We heterosexuals view your as tedious and mentally deranged. Go read Dr. McHugh’s studies (Johns Hopkins) on just how sick you are.

  • Asian countries for Asians.

    Black countries for Blacks.

    but White countries for everybody?

    That’s genocide.

    Anti-racist is a codeword for Anti-White

    • Jared Taylor was recently involved in an interesting debate at Kentucky State University which has been transcribed in its totality on the AMERICAN RENAISSANCE website. It captures what you are saying quite well. watch it here>>>

      https://youtu.be/KqoqN4kXk3s
      We don’t need sexual diversity. People do much better staying with their own kind….whites with whites, browns with browns, blacks with blacks, and orientals with orientals, homosexuals with homosexuals, heterosexuals with heterosexuals. It’s a genetic-based desire and it’s NOT wrong. Transexuality was mis-classified in the DSM V by a bunch of coddling liberal Ivory-tower psychologists and amounts to nothing less than memorialized psychobabble.

  • For anyone including a candidate to give any time to less than one percent of the population is insane. And for that population to seek power is ridiculous. But idiots on the left will. I am sick of this pandering and waste of time and money.

  • Mentally ill freaks. They belong in a mental institution away from society.

  • Strike while the iron is hot all you trans groups. Come Jan 2017, nobody’s going to listen to your whining. You’re people, not a special group.

  • Crooked Hillary looks at polls before she decides what she thinks.
    Dead people for Hillary. She is expected to get 100% of the dead people vote.

  • I lived happily through the 60s, so I really don’t care who screws whom. But it seems my don’t-give-a-shit attitude is not enough. It seems I must fully embrace the cause or be labeled some sort of ‘ist’ or other progressive slandering.

    • so you don’t mind a self-defined grown man walks into a women’s bathroom following your or a friend’s granddaughter?? since you don’t care who screws or molests whom??

      • Relax. The problem of grown men walking into the bathroom with your daughter or granddaughter will be solved rather quickly by fathers and grandfathers.

        • Until cursing, striking, or threatening a Trans or homosexual becomes labeled as a hate crime putting you 25+ years in the slavery prison system. This is a religion and they will not stop till you bow and worship at the altar of their phallus or fake vagina.

          • You really think a jury would convict?

          • A jury composed of this godless generation of 20 somethings would not hesitate after the hate filled vitriol this pedo’s lawyer spouted saying this is a sexual orientation (DSM V) and he has the same rights as others to pursue the “children” he enjoys. The rights of the parents are an act of discrimination and thus they should be sent to prison. I am merely stating the horrific direction this nation and the reprobate in it are going.

          • You’re way too paranoid.

  • LGBT = Very small % of population, why such a big voice?

    • they get a big voice since it is magnified by the Media. If a Free Market groups asked Hillary, Bernie and Trump a 15 or even a two page questionnaire, they would not get a response back and the Media would not report it or mention it.

  • Like Global Warming Transgender is a made up story, a category of people the governmen can use to humiliate and degrade the public and any thought of normalcy. It’s all about power and bending to the will of a despot in the Presidency. Meanwhile the corporate controlled news media genuflects to the bureaucrats of Rome on the Potomic and treats it like a real event. Any nay sayers will be quickly skewered by the Media and word will go out to punish them any way possible. We are living in the Soviewt Union of the 1950s. The only difference is that normal well adjusted people ran Russia in those days and upheld a higher standard of morailty. Khruschev called us the decadent West -and that was in 1959. I wonder what he would say about us now. Most likely VICTORY.

  • Transgender=mental disorder.

    Get your confused self to therapy if you feel the desire to cut off your penis.

  • These people are insane – and so are Bernie and Hilary to put up with it.

    • Hillary and Bernie are communists (in her case she’s a fascist too). They’ll do anything for votes. ANYTHING.

    • They as well as Obozo not only put up with it, but secretly endorse it. Let us be clear about it. This is what happens when biblical morality is labeled and taught as an abomination by these intolerant genocidal pigs.

  • Who, exactly, is funding the trans PAC? This handful of mentally ill people are not ponying up any money for a PAC. My guess is Soros.

  • You can’t change your gender any more than you can change your age.

  • The LGBT community is comprised of a bunch of miserable perverts.

  • If supporters of trans bathrooms could explain what this quote from
    the DSM means in a way that shows they understand it I might consider
    their bathroom proposal. Because it seems quite relevant

    “Adolescents and adults with late-onset gender dysphoria frequently engage in transvestic behavior with sexual excitement. The majority of these individuals are gynephilic (attracted to women) or sexually attracted to other post transition natal males with late-onset gender dysphoria.”
    Diagnostic and Statistical Manuals of Mental Disorders – Page 456

    • The Left is crazy, that’s what.

    • Transgendered guys enjoy dressing as women? Or, perhaps, transgendered guys get turned on wearing women’s panties? Not sure how this affects which stall they pee in. I’ve never been attacked by a lesbian in the ladies room and I doubt you’ve been attacked by any gay guys recently, right? This is all ginned up nonsense. Nevertheless, my granddaughter does not use a public restroom without escort! Common sense.

      • These patients are not gay, they have transvestic fetishism disorder

        The early onset ones are gay

      • My first two sentences speak to your post. The rest is meant to suggest that whatever gender people are AND, whether straight or gay, most don’t do anything but pee in a restroom. I do tend to agree with your premise that these people should be psych patients.

      • Nope
        It says they have a fetish for wearing the clothes and being in the female only spaces

  • WE THE PEOPLE AREN’T WASTING OUR TIME ON THOSE THAT CAN’T COME TO TERMS WITH WHAT IS IN THEIR UNDERPANTS !!

  • The trannie “community” is a community of people with one or more of several personality disorders. That’s the extent of it. The great shame is that businesses, politicians, and elected politicians clamor to kiss their confused rear ends. The real problem here, people, is politicians—the kind of cowardly jackasses we elect.

  • They would have no power if it were not for the mediaand the democrats. This is a mental health issue that the left has falsely made into a civil rights issue. The psychosis of the Obama era is coming to an end soon and Trump will be in the White House.

  • Ohhh please send me the “questionnaire”! Unfortunately, I’ll only be able to respond to questions “F” and U”.

  • She doesn’t like people. It’s all about HER. Well guess what? America hates Hillary and November is coming.

  • Queers and transgenders are an abomination to nature and a cancer for ALL civilized societies!

  • I saw we reassign the VA leadership to spearhead this for the LGBTQLMNOP community. Then they will really know what it’s like to get screwed by their government.

  • Come on people lets get real here – Hillary is running on a feminist platform who claimed that every rape victim should be heard and believed,. She belittled and tried to destroy the lives and reputations of all her husbands victims and stayed with the guy. Not a very reliable source for sticking to convictions.

  • These people are MENTALLY ILL. It’s all in their head. they need HELP.
    Every morning I wake up feeling like Superman. But I still CAN’T fly.

  • Enough of these teenie weenie pedophiles who just want to dress up and put on make up and prance around in their mommie’s shoes! Crawl back in the closet!!! And take the clown in DC with you.

  • So, .0001% wants political power? Yeah. Get in line behind Native Americans, AA’s who want to succeed, and straight guys who got laid off due to pbamacare.
    Talk to me when your choice actually becomes a thing.

    • Hey, there’s nothing wrong with LGBT – Liquor, Guns, Bacon & T!tt!3s. (Sorry, Ladies; change the T to ‘Tans’ if that makes sense to you)

  • Transgendered people are a minute percentage of the population yet, living in San Francisco, I have met a few. Most live in homosexual relationships, two guys pretending to be lesbians for example. One cross dresser lives with a lesbian woman. All seem confused but that may be my prejudice. I have yet to meet a post-op transsexual who does not regret the surgery but, again, the universe is quite small and anecdotal evidence is just that.

  • These perverts make up .02% of the population. And most don’t even vote.

  • This is what happens when liberals allow men into a woman space…

    Women: Decide for yourselves…

    • Well, that was eye-opening. Not quite sure it’s about men who are transsexuals as much as it is about the mentally ill and criminally insane. Of course, the sexually deviant will resort to wearing women’s clothing if it will allow them access to their victims. That being said, it is cross-dressing, not transsexualism, that is being practiced by men who are sexual perverts. The men in the video are sociopaths, psychopaths, schizophrenics, extremely violent, even murderous but they are cross-dressing (dressing as women), they are not real transsexuals. There was not a single one of the criminals in this video who is a real transsexual. A sexual pervert dressing in a woman’s clothing is not a transsexual. It is, sadly, true that the men in our society have an enormous range of sexual behaviors. Combine that with mental illness and the outcome is not good. Our prisons are full of sexual predators, murderers, career criminals but not transsexuals. Most transsexuals do not commit crimes. They are all too aware of the fate that would await them in a man’s prison.

  • How about we focus on what’s good for ALL Americans, for a change?

  • Hillary will tell you WHATEVER you want to hear for only a Quarter Million in speaking fees, BUT you CAN’T document or release it in case she has to say the opposite to a different group…

  • The only reason Hi LIAR y isn’t in jail is because of ME…and the simple fact the Clinton’s have A LOT of dirt on me!
    Peace Out…Hussein Kardashian.

  • Just shut up and keep voting Democrat.
    Look how well the Black Community is doing after voting in Democrats for the past 50 years. The LGBT can be where they are after 5 decades of faithful monolithic voting.
    What difference does it make?

  • TRUMP used his to light a cigar…

  • Clearly the sun and moon revolve around these queers. At least they’re convinced they do. Not very Copernicusean of them

  • I remember when trans meant a 4 speed.

  • How can you not laugh!!

  • Who are the dumbest voters on the planet right now: the ones who still think Bernie has a prayer of overcoming the democratic party establishment. The only ones who might contend for “dumbest” are the 97% of blacks who still think the liberals actually care about them. It’s a close race…Bernie’s anarchists aren’t killing each other like the BLM crowd and the liberal big city gang bangers, so they have an edge. This race may actually be better than a NASCAR short track. START YOUR ENGINES!

  • I think I saw one of those things today.

  • Hillary “Get a penial implant”, so you can show support and have empathy with our .001% cause. Bill won’t notice, promise.

  • Let everyone hear loud and clear:

    This trans/homosexual religion will not tolerate any who refuse to bow as serve their idols. Only a matter of time before they start to demand hate laws prohibiting calling their wickedness an abomination. These desired laws violate the first amendment rights of this nation. Militant Liberalism has the same mantra as Militant Islam.

    “Allah hu Akbar – CONVERT [to our genocidal religion of abominations] or …,,,,… D I E!!!!”

    Time to realize the truth before it is too late and their bloodbath begins.

  • The amount of extreme transphobia from ignorant cisgender gay bigots in the comments here is disgusting and disappointing and Washington Blade needs to do a better job of moderating their comments to throw these transphobes out.

    • Yes, because you and your fellow liberal zombies hate the first amendment which includes freedom of speech and freedom of religion.

      No, we will not bow and worship your idolatry of the phallus. But if you wish to oblige I bet Obozo thinks your hole needs to be enlarged and bloodied to remind you of the role you truly have in the liberal fairy never never land.

  • No such thing as transgender mental illness..

  • What exactly do these people want, and don’t tell me it’s a gender free bathroom either. It has to do with power and the thrill they feel up their leg when they successfully intimidate people and bend them to their will. The lawsuits will start soon and big settlements will be handed out which they will then use to buy votes. This has been in the works for a long time, just look at our universities and public schools and how entrenched the LGTB programme is.

  • Would they settle for having their own BAWTH-rooms?

    • Never!!! It is all about forcing you to bow and worship at the altar of their wicked religion. If they wish to insist on their abomination I suggest outhouses in front of businesses to accommodate a dual purpose. A place to do business and a liberal safe space to run and hide because they cannot handle people objecting to their “reality.”

  • Juanita Broaddrick's Upper Lip

    Bernie identifies as a gender questioning 22-year-old, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t keep his teeth in a glass.

  • Hillary panders to everyone. Its only a matter of time before her 5’oclock shadow comes in.

  • According to a RECENT CONFIDENTIAL CDC poll, gays, lesb, trans, bi’s, etc., constitute 1.6% of the population in America!

    At what point does this become THEIR problem and not the problem of the majority?!!!!

    Is this some kind of smoke screen to take our eyes off of the endless wars, our borders being flooded with who knows, Fukushima is in our everything and we should be having alerts on the fish we eat? Oh, and I forgot about our infrastructure collapsing!

    Get over yourselves. Accept that you are a minority and those are just the facts, ADJUST, NOT the other way around!

  • Isn’t Hillary transgender?

  • Pretty sure most gay, lesbian and bi people don’t prefer being lumped in with transgendered people. It’s not the same. Gay men don’t want to be women. Lesbians don’t want to be men. Most lesbians would probably prefer to not share facilities with men. Transgendered people are not gay. Most, not all. There are always exceptions.

    The ‘LGBT’ stamp is an insult to all. (I left the ‘Q’ off on purpose. Also an insult)

  • All 7 of the LGBTRFCHUDSMZPQN community coalesced about an issue ! This is Earth shaking news !

  • Hey transgenders-I have an idea. How about supporting a candidate who shares your views on the economy, defense, terrorism. the border, taxes and the national debt instead of limiting your choice to someone who you think gives a s**t about what bathroom you use. There is more to life than a self indulgent obsession with what you wish you had between your legs.

    • But “Self Indulgent Obsession” is now the National religion of the USA!!!
      Just look at the life of the Pretender in Chief or any other militant liberal clown.

      How dare you question the religion of the zombies from both parties and all walks of life destroying this republic for their own greed and gluttony?

  • how about equal time for those who are “trans” but don’t think these left wing agitators are representatives for us …

    Who appointed these folks? To speak for anybody but themselves?

    We support Trump and cannot wait till Hillary is long gone and no more than a faintly lingereng bad smell..

    TRANNIES for TRUMP

    If these left wing self aggrandizing agitators were interested in getting answers that make sense and were totally lost in their own biases, they would have sent a similar questionnaire to Donald Trump

    They probably were afraid that they’d get straightforward, common sense answers that were aimed to help the Trans community. So they didn’t bother.

    • They’re leftists. They live to find small pockets of grievance, which they then rush to become the saviors of. In their little groupthink, they are all trans folk, and speak for all of them.

  • When a Trans Gender goes to Federal Prison,

    What color Jump suit do they wear ?

    Pink ? Orange?

    and, Do they get to choose which cell block they will be in ?

    With the Men or the Women?

    Or do they now demand a Trans Cell Block ?

    How does Law enforcement currently handle this ?

    • It would be a crime against humanity to put them anywhere but Solitary for the entire duration of their stay. This will insure they can enjoy their insanity without fear and without endangering the rest of the prison population.

  • Hillary has not responded because an official response would, for lack of a better term, tie her hands.
    She certainly will try to make the implication that she is supportive of the LGBT community, because although it is a small percentage of the voters, it is a percentage of the voters none-the-less. Similarly, she will try to gain the support of conservationists and those who believe that fossil fuels are the root of all evil.
    But understand one important thing: Hillary cares about Hillary. If she thought it would help garner more votes, she would drill straight through a transgender caribou for oil tomorrow. Straight, gay, whatever orientation; Christian, Muslim, whatever religious views; white, black, whatever racial makeup. The absolute worst thing for you, your freedom, and, if you have children, your children’s future is a Hillary presidency.

  • Here’s what the gay agenda is really about –

    Demanding tolerance gave way to demanding recognition which gave way to
    demanding equality which is now giving way to demanding superiority.

    So much for the Stonewall excuse that all they wanted was to be “left alone”.

    Christians are under attack by the homosexual community for speaking out on the Biblical principle that homosexuality is sin.

    Gay fascists won’t be satisfied until they’ve silenced every opposition –
    especially true born again Bible believing Christians.

    Examine evidence where Christianity is being intimidated through bullying,
    threats, intimidation, laws or lawsuits – Christian business owners who are
    approached by gay couples trying to force them into compromising their beliefs and then suing them when they won’t…gays picketing churches who’s ministers preach that homosexuality is a sin. How about the “tolerance” that was shown to Chi-fil-A or Duck Dynasty ? How about the Houston Mayor recently…? How about all the angry talk from gays even after the Supreme Court decision proved that the judicial branch of government is now in the law making business ? What about the NFL and Disney just recently… and Marriott, Target and the NCAA ?

    And now transvestites want to be able to use any bathroom they choose.

    It’s happening more and more – so it’s not just about “equal rights” anymore.

    it’s about eradicating any ideology that disagrees with homosexuality –
    especially Bible believing Christians standing on Biblical principles.

    Homosexuality is a behavior,…not something that needs to be “protected”
    with special legal rights…

    The ones who need “protection” are Christians under attack by the intolerant
    bigoted homosexual community for speaking out on the Biblical principle that
    homosexuality is sin.

    I keep trying to tell you, it IS an agenda and NOT about tolerance”..and the
    transgender bathroom movement just proves my point very nicely, thank
    you…..

  • Because Hillary is bad for America, even for trannies…

  • sick sad and pathetic.

  • Here it comes folks, that didn’t take long…..

    Texas Police Identify Man Accused of Filming Girl in Target Dressing Room

    Read more: http://www.breitbart.com/texas/2016/05/24/texas-police-identify-man-accused-filming-girl-target-bathroom/

    • riiiiight….and if you’d noticed, he’s not transgendered

      • And in case you are completely naive, you are going to see 100’s of cases in the future of pervs sneaking into the womens bathroom under the guide of “trandgenderism”!

        You are one stupid mutherfuker, please don’t have any children.

  • Sure hope these democrats continue to try to corner the transvestite community. They should spend as much time and money as the”trans” community asks of them.

  • WoW, so Brucie, and Waynie and Shaniquua put together a question for all the candidates. Add a bathroom to all business and schools for the undecided. A mere 2.3 trillion dollars but hey, it’s worth it for the 3 of yutes to feel good about yourself where ever you go.

  • How long before SCOTUS forces all citizens to wear a special badge if they don’t like girls being raped in washrooms?

  • There’s no such thing as a “trans”. It is merely something dressing up like something else. What kind of freak show has this country become under this clown Barry.

  • So sick of hearing about gays and trans. What a sick society this country has turned into.

  • Sandy Crotched Wh0res for Hillary 2016!

  • What a bunch of self-important dipwits. Seriously. There are so few of them, yet they make more noise than an alley cat. They’re going to provoke reprisals if they don’t just shut up. About 80% of America is entirely disgusted with, not just trans, but BLM, la Raza, Occupy, and various other tiny minorities. Don’t make us stop your BS. Get smart and try to improve your own lot. Stop “demanding” everyone else do YOUR bidding. Seriously. Get smart.

  • Pic says it all.

  • You can NEVER let your kids use the restroom unattended anymore. Yeah, thanks you Demwit.

  • Do they need a questionnaire to help them decide which candidate to identify with? Im not even a little bit surprised

  • No such thing as trans people. You can’t transition genders anymore than you can transition species. These people need to be locked up in mental institutions and so do the “Doctors” giving them hormones and mutilating them.

  • Seriously, TUF???

    The article doesn’t say when the survey was sent out. But presumably it has been something less than 60 days– and at the height of the presidential primary season.

    This dubious group is already making a bad first impression– with self-serving, shady implications intentionally directed against Hillary.

    We’ve seen radical, PR-minded groups take cheap shots at LGBT allies to burnish their image– and take advantage of the news of the moment. They come and go.

    This rushed “chiding” of Hillary seems more akin to that. Maybe thoughtful LGBTQs ought to avoid TUF altogether. Or at least wait to see if they deserve our support.
    ——–
    **
    A newly formed pro-transgender political action committee has sent out a questionnaire to each of the major 2016 presidential candidates — but only Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders has responded… Monica Roberts, a Houston-based advisory member of the Trans United Fund presidential endorsement committee, chided Clinton for neglecting to respond to the survey, saying off-the-record commitments from political candidates on trans rights are no longer sufficient. **

  • Transgenders of the world , UNITE, allll….. .03% of YA’S! =0)))))))))))) .~HA~

  • So what will be the next group of people to be “used” by Democrats to get votes?

  • Transgender power…… Ridiculous.

  • You know why the left panders to the LGBT community? Votes! They want their votes. They don’t really care about the community. If they truly did, they would chastise Muslims for their treatment of gays, christians and women.

  • http://www.nyc.gov/html/cchr/html/law/gender-identity-legalguidance.shtml

    Probably most of you have seen NYC legal guidance. If a woman with a penis demands

  • Transgenders should be thankful we even let them exist in this country….They should all shut up and stay out of normal people’s lives.

  • Irrelevant… 0.1% of population want to control the rest of population. #nevertrans
    Dont hate..but u are not controlling us.

  • A judge ordered a transgendered boy be allowed to change in girl’s,locker room in a HS when he already had private room to use to change in was how this all began. It is never a pout accomindations but special privileges. Liberal judges create most of this strife as well.

  • It’s a sign of the times that these perverts EXPECT to be pandered too. How low will America go?

  • Why didn’t the Clinton campaign respond to the questions?

    Because “men in the women’s restrooms” will drive women into the Trump camp in huge numbers and she knows it.

    • It isn’t just that. There is no logical end point to the belief that you are a woman just by thinking you are.

      The DOJ will now have to defend the right of penis women to be placed in the women’s dorms and assigned penis-disadvantaged women as college roommates.

  • The Clinton camp knows that they will get the trans vote on the PERCEPTION of support, but would lose more non-trans votes on the written pledge of support. That’s why they haven’t returned the questionnaire. Any questions?

  • Dear Trannies,
    You have a mental illness. Get help.

    • They are getting help. There is hormone therapy. Gender reassignment surgery…

      Oh, you mean mental help? I believe a large percentage of psychiatrists and psychologists are extremely liberal. Blind leading the blind.

  • The Democrat’s have DESTROYED “Family” and Humanity !!
    We are a diseased nation!

  • The only smaller known special interest group is the left-handed transgender club. Who really cares? It’s time to stop pandering to these micro-organizations. The group is so small it couldn’t vote in a dog catcher in a small town so stop giving this vocal group so much ink. Good grief!

  • Under o’bama the United States is controlled by minorities – Any And All Minorities. The Progressives HATE America, HATE capitalism, HATE personal responsibility and accountability. They create classes of “victims” and claim rights that do not exist – not to help these tiny groups, but to Exploit them politically. In truth, they powers behind this movement have no concern whatsoever with these “victims”. Their goal is to divide the American people into small groups and take advantage of a fractured population to gain power. Sadly, people are all to willing to blame others for their own situations and accept the false offer of help from Democrats. Progressives have no intention of resolving any of these manufactured issues – only in creating and exploiting them. Blacks are the most gullible of these groups, having fallen for the SAME LIE for more than 50 years. Transexuals are perhaps the most blatant and most recent example of this process and currently control the agenda for the 99.97 percent of our country.

  • Clinton normally panders better than this.

    • The transgenders don’t have any money so they are worthless to her.

      She is more focused on pandering to Islamic Jihad now.

      HILLARY AKBAR 2016!

  • Newsflash: we dont really care about trans “rights” other than do what you want at home. Your need for therapy or to play dress up is not my problem. Get over it
