White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre announced during a press briefing on Friday that the Biden administration plans to use the Department of Justice to fight back against “state laws that target trans kids” in what looks like a weaponization of the federal government.
Jean-Pierre gushed over Pride Month and declared the administration’s unflagging solidarity with the “LGBTQI+ community” and the cause of “equality and freedom for all people.”
“This year has been really scary for our community,” because “people are being treated, threatened, intimidated and targeted for who they are and who they love,” she stated, taking direct aim at conservatives and parents.
“This year alone, more than 600 anti-LGBTQI bills have been filed in statehouses across the country, and a significant portion of those bills target transgender youth,” she asserted, addressing the legality of allowing minors to engage in life-altering medications and surgeries due to transgender ideation. “As President Biden says, these young people are some of the bravest people he knows, but no one should have to be brave to be themselves.”
Make no mistake: the federal government has been weaponized against parents that want to protect their children. https://t.co/etZ0xPDVq4

The press secretary went on to intimate that Biden is set to defend civil rights by ordering the federal government to take a stand against states banning transgender medical procedures on minors.
“It’s why the president has taken historic steps to advance equality for the LGBTQI community and protect civil rights. He was proud to sign an executive order directing federal agencies to protect LGBTQI families and support youth mental health and stop harmful conversion therapy policies,” Jean-Pierre claimed.
“DOJ is actively supporting challenges to state laws that target transgender kids. In light of the Dobbs decision, he took action to protect marriage equality by signing into law, the Respect for Marriage Act, and he continues to call on Congress to pass the Equality Act to enshrine civil rights protections for LGBTQI+ Americans in federal law,” she added.
This Administration has to go. They can’t overrule State’s rights.

Conservatives are alarmed at the proclamation by the Biden administration which appears to be vowing to use the federal government to enforce radical policy.
“Biden employing his political hatchet men to destroy women’s sports and force states to have grabs surgery for kids – which like 75% of the country opposes,” Republican strategist Matt Whitlock noted.
Entrepreneur Steve Murch also shared statistics about the involvement of biological men in women’s sports and wrote, “This is not the popular stance they may think it is. They’re too attuned to Twitter reruns from 2020.”

Users on Twitter had a thing or two to say about the weaponization of the federal government under the Biden administration:
This ( TWILIGHT ZONE) administration wont stop burning this country down until there is nothing remaining but ash….( sigh) And then sadly the remaining ash will be labeled racist /homophobic as it lacks diversity and was named by white oppressors. pic.twitter.com/inwrtBbtqm

Sounds like weaponization of the DOJ and a violation against the will of the people in those states

Then you’re basically going against Federalism and what the Founding Fathers intended. A slap in the face to our country.

And all those bills have been written, proposed and passed by democratically elected representatives just exactly the way a Constitutional Republic is supposed to work. States have more Constitutional latitude than the Fed. Gov. Sending the DOJ to States is a massive overreach.
