OPINION: BY JEFFREY A. FRIEDBERG
Impolite, and not chronicling the “news” politely….
…During Wednesday night’s first Democratic presidential debate, San Antonio mayor Julián Castro stated he supports taxpayer-funded abortions for “transgender women.” “I don’t believe only in reproductive freedom; I believe in reproductive justice,” he said. “And what that means is just because a woman, or let’s also not forget someone in the trans community — a trans female — is poor, doesn’t mean they shouldn’t exercise that right to choose….”
…Let’s assume, however, that Castro didn’t misspeak and that he indeed supports taxpayer-funded abortions for “trans women,” which is most likely the case. Why would Castro want taxpayers to fund something that is currently biologically impossible? Perhaps a “trans female” is a woman who becomes a man? Not at all. Although progressives are constantly altering and updating terms relating to sex and sexuality to fit their current political narrative, science be damned (he who defines the terms controls the argument), the latest liberal terminology defines a “trans female” or “trans woman” as a man who “becomes” a woman.
According to Wikipedia, which is the gatekeeper of all things progressive:
A trans woman (sometimes trans-woman or transwoman) is a woman who was assigned male at birth. Trans women may experience gender dysphoria and may transition; this process commonly includes hormone replacement therapy and sometimes sex reassignment surgery, which can bring immense relief and even resolve gender dysphoria entirely. Trans women may be heterosexual, bisexual, homosexual, asexual, or identify with other terms (such as queer)….
….Now, let’s suppose, years in the future, when science has worked out all the bugs, that a man decides to undergo all the risks and grueling preparation involved with a uterine transplant (instead of simply adopting, which would be a lot easier, safer, and more sensible). And let’s say it works, and he finally gets pregnant. And let’s say he wakes up one morning and thinks, Hmm, I don’t think I want this baby after all. I want to get rid of it, and I want the government to pay for it.
In this case, I guess Julián Castro’s support for transgender abortion contains some semblance of warped logic. Not that this highly implausible and as yet scientifically impossible scenario is worth mentioning in a presidential debate when you are already limited by time and must choose your words wisely. And not that there are other more practical, more pressing issues to be dealt with. But that’s what you get from a political party that wants to fund the kinds of procedures that could put babies inside men’s bodies, while simultaneously fighting for laws that would allow these same babies to get ripped out again.
…Castro served as the mayor of his native San Antonio, Texas from 2009 until he joined Obama’s cabinet in 2014. He was mentioned as a possible running mate for Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential campaign. Castro is the twin brother of Congressman Joaquin Castro.
[His] mother was a Chicana political activist who helped establish the Chicano political party La Raza Unida, and who ran unsuccessfully for the San Antonio City Council in 1971. Castro once stated, “My mother is probably the biggest reason that my brother and I are in public service. Growing up, she would take us to a lot of rallies and organizational meetings and other things that are very boring for an 8-, 9-, 10-year-old”. His father, Jessie Guzman, is a retired mathematics teacher and political activist. Never married, Rosie and Jessie separated when Castro and his brother were eight years old. Castro’s Texan roots trace back to 1920, when his grandmother Victoria Castro joined extended family members there as a six-year-old orphan from northern Mexico.
So, it seems Castro is just another spawn of liberal, progressive, Democrat, “Mexican” descent.
Whose Leftist parents were flaming, raging Liberal,”Progressives,” who taught him the Liberal Way.
”Progressive Socialist” sounds sooo much nicer than its true, parasitic name of “Communism.” Which has never worked out—ANYwhere it was tried.
It’s no wonder to me Castro is running for cartel-controlled, sissy President of Mexico…whoops, I mean President of the defunct, Russian, communist USSR—Oh, wait…what is he actually running for?
He’s running for President of what—gay liberals? Or what?
What the hell are Democrats doing? WHO is their Target Audience? What are they fishing for? Does Open Borders, Unlimited “Migration,” Free Everything for Illegals, and all this “Gay” and “trans” stuff sound like a winning Platform?
Because Democrats are targeting the votes of every illegal invader-voter; every lost- cause alien; every angry misfit, criminal, prevert, suburban housewife, uninformed, disinformed, lied-to, delusional, insane, crazed, brainwashed, feel-good, TV-and-drug-addicted, I-want-to-help-my-fellow-humans, Democrat-inclined voter.
The Democrat Party of Harry Truman, JFK, Hubert Humphrey, and the great Daniel Moynihan, is GONE. They are dead. And so is the Democrat Party.
What we face now is The Party of Death—abortion, jihad, riots, dead cops, American murders, open borders, free everything for everybody, and World Communism with Democrats in permanent totalitarian power.
It’s no wonder Julián or Julian (or Julio, or whatever) is named “Castro.”
Like Communist Cuba—“Castro” is a perfect fit for a Communist America—by the Alien-Communist Democrat Party.
America was never founded as a communist state. It was meant to be open, successful, and moral. It has been under attack by Democrat communists for a hundred years.
But—you see—they must eradicate America’s Constitution and guns to make their takeover coup successful. And that doesn’t seem likely to work out well for them any time soon.
As in: Kids, a Democrat takeover-coup will never be allowed to happen in America.
Donald Trump has already won the 2020 election. He has “pushed” the democrats so far left, they cannot possibly sound like winners to a majority of Americans, and win.
Democrats will lose. And then they will react as never before. They will be inconsolable and uncontainable. They will march, burn, kill, “protest,” and destroy. After a while, this will not sit well—with practically everyone.
At that point Julio Castro can trot out his plea for transgender pregnant males, and all fighting and opposition will spontaneously cease, from pure joy. We will all join hands and sing the gay national anthem…or communist…or something.
Because Science Fiction Dreams Can Come True!
