“The state has invaded even the most private aspects of life, dictating sexual mores and controlling the most intimate aspects of daily life through misinformation, peer pressure, and direct thought control.” ~ Jeffrey Somers
The Left is apoplectic over President Trump’s proposal to put some limits on the effort by Michelle Obama to dictate what your kids eat at school. The handwringing is over free breakfast for poor kids. The real concern should be that the White House is dictating what your children eat. Let that sink in.
Nevertheless, 14 states are suing to stop the President. State governments are no less enthusiastic than the federal government about exercising power.
In California, the Board of Education has implemented a sex education program that prohibits abstinence-only education and any discussion of religious doctrine. The program contains explicit photos and drawings of sexual activity. It disusses anal and oral sex as an alternative to regular sex. “They talk about mutual masturbation,” a critic said. “They discuss everything, topics like roleplaying for different genders, blood play, dental dams … fisting is mentioned.”
In South Carolina, a state senator has raised a bill that would require the state to compensate women who are unable to obtain abortions because of a proposed ‘heartbeat bill.’ The act states that a woman who is unable to have an abortion because of the law would be forced to be a “gestational surrogate” for the state “which cannot itself physically conceive or carry a child.”
In Virginia, Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam’s proposed ban on “assault firearms” could potentially be applied to a majority of guns that are currently legal. The National Shooting Sports Foundation said Northam’s proposal was so broad that it could lead to the confiscation of millions of guns from previously-legal owners.
in Indiana, as South Ben Mayor Pete Buttigieg contended with skyrocketing crime rates, the city’s police department trained officers to combat “sizeism” and “languageism.” Training extended far beyond the immediate issues facing the city and instead lectured cops on policing their own language to be sensitive to “isms.”
In Iowa, an undercover video published by Project Veritas on Tuesday shows a field organizer for Sen. Bernie Sanders’ 2020 campaign saying Soviet gulags were actually a positive phenomenon, suggesting that some similar program could re-educate Trump supporters and billionaires.
In Michigan, the lesbian attorney general is accused of using ‘tyranny’ to suppress biblical marriage beliefs. Dana Nessel is charged in a lawsuit with “watching, listening, tracking, and compiling secret dossiers on dissidents until they are finally accused and prosecuted,” which are “the police-state tactics one might associate with an authoritarian regime in a World War II movie,” a law firm contends.
