One thing thatâ€™s great about America is that regardless of what your opinion is, youâ€™re free to express it.Â That is what LGBT advocate Barack Obama did when he tweeted kudos to Bruce/Caitlyn Jenner for dressing in drag and posing proudly on the cover of Vanity Fair.
Judging from the media circus surrounding the former Olympic champion-turned-reality TV star, even a wrongful death suit pales in comparison to what Obama feels is the remarkable valor of a clearly troubled grandfather of five leaving as his legacy a picture of himself dressed like heâ€™s auditioning for a role in La Cage Aux Folles.
In fact, despite the bizarre nature of a man keeping his genitals tucked neatly away during a photo shoot, in Obamaâ€™s gender identity-obsessed circle, a 65-year-old male ex-Olympian dressed in a cream-colored bustier channeling Jessica Lange is someone the POTUS apparently feels is worthy of national respect.
Conveying that level of admiration has to be why Obama instructed his mouthpiece, Josh â€˜Not Soâ€™ Earnest, to let the world know that, from one raging narcissist to another, the transitioning Jenner has Barryâ€™s approval.
The truth is, based on Obamaâ€™s left-leaning political bent and peculiar list of priorities, inserting himself into the midst of the transgender festivities is more than predictable.Â Any day now, Obama will probably extend bipartisan/transgender support to the newly-minted Republican cover guy/girl by inviting him/her to the White House for some playtime in Michelleâ€™s clothes closet.
Until then, the presidentâ€™s reaction does cause one to pause and reflect upon what Josh says Obama considers â€œtremendous courageâ€¦worthy of our respect.â€Â After all, if Barack Obama is suddenly commending the gutsy, thereâ€™s a long list of individuals he has neither acknowledged as courageous nor deemed worthy of showing his respect.
For instance, America now knows that the president respects men who dress in frilly underthings.Â However, the same apparently does not hold true for courageous men and women who choose to dress in blue uniforms.Â Judging from his recent proclamations, Barack Obama views the law enforcers who protect the mean inner cities that he racially incites as bigoted bullies who, to prevent them from â€œacting stupidly,â€ require the federal government (whenever itâ€™s expedient, of course) to intervene.
Then thereâ€™s the undeniable â€œtremendous courageâ€ of imprisoned former FBI agent Bob Levinson, veteran Amir Hekmati, and American pastor Saeed Abedini.Â All three men suffer the unthinkable as they rot away in an Iranian jail, but they do so while holding fast to the faithfulness of America and the goodness of God.Â Meanwhile, Obama is busy paying presidential tributes to transgender cover girls.
And while Obama tosses around kudos for cross-dressing, fading from memory are daring acts like those undertaken by the two CIA operatives who tried in vain to save U.S. ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and U.S. Foreign Service information management officer Sean Smith.Â Ex-Navy SEALs Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods courageously defied an alleged stand-down order and lost their lives rushing headlong into the Benghazi terrorist attack.
If Bruce/Caitlyn deserves presidential acclaim for perching demurely on a stool for an Annie Leibovitz photo shoot, how about an honorable mention for Bibi Netanyahu, a proven warrior willing to lay down his life to protect the nation of Israel and the Jewish people who are surrounded nearly on all sides by genocidal maniacs?
Then there are heroes like U.S. border patrol agent Brian Terry and ICE agent Jaime Zapata, both murdered with guns given to Mexican drug cartels by the leaders of a nation whose borders Terry and Zapata died trying to protect.
And letâ€™s not forget the â€œtremendous courageâ€ of border agents who were infected with things like bacterial pneumonia and scabies while doing their job handling the influx of children the president illegally encouraged migrating to America.
While Obama is freely dispensing declarations of â€œtremendous courageâ€¦worthy of respect,â€ how about a posthumous mention of an extraordinary patriot who laid down his life to protect his fellow soldiers and the nation he loved, American Sniper Chris Kyle?Â Murdered by a soldier with PTSD, Kyle never received praise or approval from the guy who seems super-impressed with a 6â€™2â€ man who managed to squeeze his lanky gams into a pair of XXL panty hose.
Regardless of what Barack Obama views as â€œtremendous courageâ€ or behavior â€œworthy of respect,â€ there are true American heroes like Racine, Wisconsin native and born-again Christian Jordan Matson, a man whose name Obama has yet to mention.
Hey Obama!Â How about a shout-out to Matson, who could no longer stand by and see Christians slaughtered by the Islamic State and decided it was high time for him to do a job you simply refuse to do?
Formerly a U.S. Army infantryman, Jordan Matson worked a delivery route just long enough to save enough money to sustain him in Syria for three years.Â Now Matson is fighting against ISIS side by side with the Kurdish People’s Protection Unit.
Yet, despite all that, and much more, the president of the United States still insists on publicly declaring his respect for the â€œtremendous courageâ€ of a he-she in lipstick dressed up in a lace corset who, to the delight of the national media, is currently in the process of â€œfundamentally transformingâ€ himself from male to female.
Someone should muster the fortitude to advise Barack Obama that contrary to presidential opinion, it doesnâ€™t take â€œtremendous courageâ€ for a sexually conflicted father of six to defy his DNA, take female hormones, get breast implants, and have his feminine side glamorized on the cover of Vanity Fair.
Moreover, neither does granting unmerited heroism to drag queens make a president â€œworthy of respect.â€
