Have You Heard About “The Equality Act”? by The Elephant's Child

“While Europeans are accustomed to being ruled by presumed betters whom they distrust, the American people’s realization of being ruled in the same way shocked this country into well-nigh revolutionary attitudes. But only the realization was new. The Ruling Class had sunk deep roots in America decades before 2008.

America’s disease is all the more deadly for being bipartisan. Republican and Democratic office-holders and their retinues share  similar presumption to dominate, and show fewer differences in tastes, habits, opinions, and sources of income among one another than between both and the rest of the country. They think, look, and act as a class, almost a caste.”…

That excerpt comes from Angelo M. Codevilla’s 2010 book The Ruling Class.

In that line of thought, I was interested to learn that last week, Democrats introduced the Equality Act, a measure that would ensure gender ideology – i.e., transgender bathrooms, forced preferred pronoun use, and biological men playing women’s sports, etc. – is cemented into federal law.

H.R. 5, which was introduced with 239 co-sponsors, states its purpose is to “prohibit discrimination on the basis of sex, gender identity, and sexual orientation, and for other purposes.”

Prohibiting discrimination and promoting equality sound virtuous, but many serious opponents — including a coalition of conservatives, feminists, lesbians, and Christians — are warning Americans the Equality Act is dangerous legislation that will do anything but create equality. In fact, the measure would likely force American women throughout the country to relinquish their rights to privacy, safety, and the ability to compete in sports “equally.”

Monica Burke of the Heritage Foundation summed up the likely effects of the Equality Act with the observation at the Daily Signal that “it actually would promote inequality by elevating the ideologies of special-interest groups to the level of protected groups in civil rights law.”

Concurrently, it seems that British Police are investigating a Catholic mother after she used the “wrong pronoun” for a transgender person.  According to the Telegraph, Catholic journalist Caroline Farrow “allegedly used the wrong pronoun when referring to “transgender rights activist Susie Green’s “transgender daughter.” Green filed a complaint with the police. Farrow will face a recorded interview with police to determine whether she committed a “hate crime.” She is also being investigated for a possible hate crime under the malicious communication act, an offense that carries a maximum two-year prison sentence.”

So is this the ultimate denouement of the Democrat’s long, long effort to make the Republicans the “racist” party?  It was Southern Democrats who imported slaves from Africa. It was Southern Democrats who seceded from the union to protect their ‘peculiar institution,’ fought a long and bloody war to preserve slavery. Democrats have been twisting themselves into pretzels to find proof, that anyone would believe, that Donald Trump is a racist.

A ban on travel from a few Middle Eastern Countries that have supported terrorism, they tried to make into a general racist ban on people with slightly darker skin. They’ve tried to make the crisis of illegal immigration at our Southern border into something racist. Everything is now supposed to be about “Diversity” which supposedly means that every group of people must include the correct proportions of skin colors compared to their numbers in society. All group photographs must be correctly diversified. That is not working sufficiently to ease their fears that some blacks might move to the Republican Party. Harvard, for example, is now being sued by Asian students with outstanding SAT scores who are not accepted because it would mean that Harvard had too many Asian students and not the correct “diversity.”

Did you wonder why “white supremacy” has suddenly popped up as a bad thing? It possibly has something to do with Democrat’s fear that they may be losing some of their black voters. There are well known black Republicans. There is a “walk away” movement. Democrats consider themselves the real Ruling Class, and they must be in control. That’s why “white supremacy”, that’s why Trump must be a racist, that’s why opposing open borders must be racist, and why the Democrats introduced the Equality Act last week. If you don’t want to reach the point where you or I might be hauled off to be interrogated by the police for “misgendering” someone as having committed a hate crime, you might want to contact your congresspeople, or urge the President to get out his veto pen.
