We learned that the Obama administration has sent a letter to public schools regarding bathrooms:
The Obama administration will send a letter to every public school district in the country telling them to allow transgender students to use bathrooms and locker rooms that match their chosen gender identity, as opposed to their birth certificate.Welcome to insanity and double standards.
The letter, which is signed by officials at the Justice Department and the Department of Education, will be sent out to the districts on Friday.
While the letter does not have the force of law, it does warn that schools that do not abide by the administration’s interpretation of civil rights law may face lawsuits or loss of federal aid.
"There is no room in our schools for discrimination of any kind, including discrimination against transgender students on the basis of their sex," Attorney General Loretta Lynch said in a statement.
First, the Obama girls, who have never attended a public school, won't have to worry about any of this. They get to enjoy education the old-fashioned way, or when bathrooms were for boys and girls.
Second, this is another example of executive overreach, such as rewriting laws to distract your base from high black youth unemployment rates or sending troops to Iraq.
The Obama administration is using Title IX rather than going to Congress or public opinion for a new law. I guess that they don't want to put Democrats in the uncomfortable position of voting "yes or no" on this issue. So they expand Title IX like they did with ObamaCare.
At some point, I'd love to see a Democrat stand up and say this: My fellow liberals, do we want these executive powers in the hands of President Trump?
In the meantime, it must be nice to write letters that affect parents but do not apply to your own kids.
