FORT LAUDERDALE, Florida, July 13, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — Transgender insanity is now leading to persecution of law enforcement officers.
Fort Lauderdale cop James Brinton is being disciplined and the entire city police force is being made to undergo transgender sensitivity “training” because … Brinton actually listed a man as “male.”
The man in question, 48-year-old real estate agent Shelby Kendall, is indeed male, but in 2014 he filed to have his driver’s license changed to read “female.”
Foolishly, the state of Florida did just that. With the touch of a delete button, Kendall was given a bureaucratic sex change and officially declared by the government a “woman.”
Note to self: What kind of society would state an unreality simply because an intrinsically disordered person requests it? A society that is intrinsically disordered itself.
In January, Officer Brinton caught Kendall drag racing on a public highway. Brinton pulled him over and began to give him a ticket for reckless driving.
This is where the plot thickens. Rather than list his biological sex, the police computer that filled in Kendall’s driver’s license information on the ticket listed him as female. Brinton thought it was a mistake and corrected it.
In the meantime, Kendall tried to get away in his Camaro — or so the officer thought (Kendall claims he was simply getting out of another driver’s way). Brinton jumped out of his cruiser, cuffed Kendall, called for backup, and later rebuffed him when Kendall said something about being a woman.
After all, it is Fort Lauderdale, the southeast’s San Francisco.
Fast forward just four days after the traffic stop. Kendall went to the police department’s internal affairs and filed charges against Brinton for “mis-gendering” him on the ticket.
“Mis-gendering,” or actually, “Correct gendering,” is now a crime.
Think about that. Telling the truth to a man who desperately fantasizes that he is a woman is a crime in Fort Lauderdale.
George Orwell wrote, “Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.” Jesus said it is the truth that gives us freedom.
But today’s gay agenda requires lies. Lies that sodomy is healthy and/or an expression of love. Lies that two people of the same sex can be “married.” Lies that a man is a woman, or vice versa.
And everyone has to lie, or at least go along with The Big Lie that one can actually change sex. Otherwise, the entire transgender edifice comes tumbling down.
Orwell also wrote, “If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear.” Too bad cops can’t do that in Fort Lauderdale.
Next in the Kendall saga came bureaucracy at its worst. A cadre of investigators interviewed and researched the incident thoroughly.
The police investigators threw fellow officer Brinton under the bus. They recommended that their brother cop be officially reprimanded for his heinous insensitivity.
Calling a man “male” is now discriminatory hate speech. And the rub is, those most needed for backup and support turn against those who speak reality.
After all, the greatest crime is no longer murder or rape, it is questioning societal dictates. Or just plain telling the truth.
Orwell’s famous warning of a dystopian world order noted that the first to go was the admission of reality. “The very concept of objective truth is fading out of the world,” he wrote.
Further politically-correct humiliation ensued. Brinton was hauled before the Citizens Police Review Board on Monday. He explained he wasn’t trying to bully Kendall. He honestly thought the information someone input in the department computer was in error.
Nevertheless but not surprisingly, the liberal citizens’ board went against law enforcement, too. Only they upped the ante.
They decreed that Officer Brinton should be reprimanded, and that the entire city police department must have training on how to lie in order to appease transgender delusions.
Then it was Fort Lauderdale Police Chief Rick Maglione’s turn to crucify Brinton on the cross of politically correct falsehood.
First, Maglione said correct department procedure is to go by information on a driver’s license — as if Brinton had done something wrong in trying to correct a mistake.
Second, he made sure to add the zinger, “We endeavor to take appropriate action … where it is alleged we veered from that position.”
“Appropriate action” is to leave a permanent blot on a law enforcement officer’s record for calling a guy “male?” Let alone the physical, biological, logical, common-sense, reality-based fact is that Brinton was right, no matter what intrinsically disordered society claims.
The police chief would only be so carefully vague (“veered?”) in order to give the impression that Brinton did something terribly wrong, when in fact he didn’t.
Third, just to be absolutely clear that Brinton’s honesty was intolerably inappropriate, Maglione noted, “I believe the department’s actions concerning the investigation before the Citizens’ Police Review Board clearly illustrates our commitment.”
Yeah, “commitment” to send your fellow officer up the river.
Nice to have your chief back you up, isn’t it? It seems to me the only thing Maglione illustrated is that he cowers before politically correct pressure to the point of selling out his own team.
Maglione further emphasized his personal assurances that his department “is committed to the equal treatment of all of our neighbors and visitors.”
Is there no end to this transgender lunacy?
It used to be the one person you could count on to give you a straight answer — no matter if you liked it or not — was a policeman. Not so anymore, at least in Fort Lauderdale.
If the cops themselves are so afraid of homo-intimidation that they don’t tell the truth, or worse, can’t see the truth, what’s the average citizen to do?
If the law says black is white and unreality is reality, what’s an honest person to do? I say Christians should tell the truth, no matter what.
Final disciplinary decision-making for Brinton is up to the Fort Lauderdale city manager. But I’m not holding my breath.
“In a time of deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act,” Orwell penned. Let’s be revolutionaries, shall we?
Two Muslim children, both sisters, missed a school class photograph in The Hague during Eid al-Adha and as a result, the school has compensated the pair 500 euros. Their parents had demanded 10,000….
lawyer for the sisters, said the incident…was a clear case of discrimination… the Cantonal Court found the school guilty and awarded the pair 500 euros each in compensation
The court capitulated to brazen Islamic supremacist parents — posturing as victims as usual — and unjustly enforced a penalty upon the school for offending the sensibilities of the Muslim children. Rather than teaching their children about integration and assimilation, these Muslim parents imparted to their children a sense of victimhood, entitlement and superiority over infidels.
Islamic supremacists are becoming increasingly emboldened because of Western weakness. All they need to do is pull out the words “discrimination,” “Islamophobia,” and “racism,” and bingo, useful idiot infidels shrink into submission.
“Dutch School Gave Muslim Pupils 500 Euros Compensation Because Class Photo Day Fell During Ramadan”, by Chris Tomlinson, Breitbart, July 12, 2017:
Two Muslim children, both sisters, missed a school class photograph in The Hague during Eid al-Adha and as a result, the school has compensated the pair 500 euros. Their parents had demanded 10,000.
The Maria Montessori School in The Hague was brought to court over the matter and accused of discrimination because the sisters were not included in a class photograph. The Cantonal Court found the school guilty and awarded the pair 500 euros each in compensation, Dutch broadcaster RTL News reports.
Laura Zuydgeest, the lawyer for the sisters, said the incident, which occurred in 2015, was a clear case of discrimination because the only people affected were Muslims. The school defended its choice saying they tried to bring in the photographer in the morning but the only time the photographer was available was when the sisters and their mother were at a mosque for prayers.
The mother of the pair originally wanted 10,000 euros for the incident and said during the trial: “Do you know how it feels when your five-year-old daughter enters the classroom every day looks at the picture and asks, ‘Mommy, why I’m not here?’ and you can not explain it to the child?”
Ms. Zuydgeest said the mother in the case was happy with the outcome.
The anti-mass migration Party for Freedom (PVV), led by Dutch critic of Islam Geert Wilders, submitted parliamentary questions on the case, asking whether the judge who presided was “crazy” and if they should be suspended from their post.
Mr. Wilders took to Twitter to comment on the case, posting an image of a woman in a full-face Islamic niqab veil and a caption telling them to use the 500 euros to buy a one-way ticket to an Islamic country.
An official for the Department of Education said that 90 percent of sexual assault accusations amount to drunk sex or regret after sex, according to a Wednesday report.
Candice Jackson, who heads the civil rights division of the Department of Education, made these remarks and others in an interview with The New York Times, published a day before Education Secretary Betsy DeVos’ meeting with campus sexual assault activists, including both alleged victims and accused students.
“[Most investigations include] not even an accusation that these accused students overrode the will of a young woman,” said Jackson. “Rather, the accusations — 90 percent of them — fall into the category of ‘we were both ‘drunk,’ we broke up, and six months later I found myself under a Title IX investigation because she just decided that our last sleeping together was not quite right.’”
The Department of Education official’s comments stand in stark contrast to campus sexual assault activists, who insist that campuses are subject to “rape culture,” often citing a 2015 Association of American Universities survey alleging that at least one in four women experience sexual assault while on campus. However, the survey has received criticism for a loose definition of “sexual assault” that includes alcohol and differs vastly from the 1995-2013 figuresobtained by the Justice Department, stating that 0.61 percent of students were sexually assaulted.
DeVos will meet with alleged victims of sexual assault, accused students, and college officials Thursday. Jackson recounted a meeting she had with the mother of a male accused student.
“Listening to her talk about walking in and finding him in the middle of trying to kill himself because his life and his future were gone, and he was forever branded a rapist — that’s haunting,” Jackson told The New York Times. The Department of Education official asserted that Title IX treated accused students unfairly and that investigators were “specifically told to keep looking until you find the violation,” a characterization with which her predecessor, Catherine Lhamon, disagreed, disputing the Department’s distinction between nonviolent and violent sexual assaults.
Fatima Goss Graves, president of National Women’s Law Center, said that she is “worried that the [Department of Education] will turn into apologists for the sort of violence that happens on campus.”
The Department of Education must finish four out of five of its investigations in 180 days, but the average age of the 496 cases open Monday was 703 days, with two cases having stayed open for more than half a decade. (RELATED: Critics Of Campus Sexual Assault Handlings Prepare For DeVos Meeting)
