Skip to comments.Biden: Transgender Discrimination Is the ‘Civil Rights Issue of Our Time’ (Winning Strategy /s)

During an address to an Obama for America Florida field office on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden apparently told volunteers and reporters that transgender discrimination is the civil rights issue of our time. When a woman (Biden said her beautiful eyes caught his attention) asked a question that was initially inaudible to reporters and the audience, he responded with his statement about civil rights.
Later, the individual who asked the question, Linda Carragher Bourne of Sarasota, Florida, clarified the dialogue, telling the pool reporter that her daughter was Miss Trans New England. She explained her question to the vice-president whether he would help people like her daughter.
A lot of my friends are being killed, and they dont have the civil rights yet. These guys are gonna make it happen, Bourne told the pool reporter.
The Washington Blade notes that it wasnt entirely clear whether Biden was referencing discrimination that is more generally waged against gays, lesbians and transgendered Americans or if he was specifically targeting the latter group. The Blade continues:
Biden has been among the most outspoken officials in the Obama administration in his support for LGBT rights. His endorsement of same-sex marriage preceded President Obamas when he said in May during an interview on NBCs Meet the Press that hes absolutely comfortable with married gay couples having the same rights as straight couples.
Over the course of the presidential campaign, Biden has engaged in LGBT outreach. Before a crowd at the prominent gay resort town of Provincetown, Mass., Biden said in August that LGBT Americans are freeing the souls of the American people and gay activists arent just fighting for their own civil rights, but the civil rights of every straight American.
Biden has made his support for the LGBT community clear and, if valid as reported, this is merely another one of his strongly-worded statements supporting this cohort.
Not the 4 US citizens who where killed in Benghazi
Yeah, I can tell Catholic moral teaching really informs the beliefs of this “practicing Catholic”...
Democrats obviously have the transgender vote secured, also the shop lifters vote, the welfare cheats vote, the medicare scammers vote.....
Just when you think another even-more-stupid thing cannot come out of the mouth of Joe Biden, it does.
(well, not really surprised)
He’s a heartbeat away from being president........
Actually, it’s come to this: the civil rights issue of our time has become the right of the White race to survive and structure a government and a society which is neither hostile to nor in violation of their rights.
Hes a heartbeat away from being president........”
...yep. And as pathetic as Biden is, he still beats Obama.
Wow. This is an admission that white racism is over, is it not?
It’s is honestly amazing that people believe that the transgendered are anything but insane. I mean really how it is any different from thinking you are Napoleon or a chicken? Gender is a biological fact determined by your genes. There’s no disputing it.
As sex change operation or no more rational than grafting a beak and feathers onto someone who thinks they are a chicken.
The ‘transgender rights’ concept is possibly the clearest example of compassion gone insane.
And from there it’s a short leap to copulation with animals...which can lead to offspring as evidenced by Uncle Joe, himself.
There is no such condition as transgender discrimination. There is and can be no discrimination against a state of being that does not exist.
There is male and there is female. All else is rationalization, mental construct, synthetic being. There is no transgender
Is Biden trying to tell us something indirectly here...hmmm
I think that procedure is now covered in the 'Affordable Health Care Act'. It is a feature that is designed to lower the cost of healthcare for all of us. Where have you been?
“...her daughter was Miss Trans New England...”
Does that men it was her son that became her daughter or is it her daughter who is now her son??????
Mental illness is so confusing.
Black Americans must feel privileged to be thrown in with sexual deviants.
I have no doubt it is covered somewhere in the 2kish pages.
No. The biggest problem is blaming people for this country’s woes just because they are male, White, Christian, normal.
this is going to go over great in PA and MI
I have to believe that there was a time when a person making an utterance like this in public, earnestly, would have been quietly guided away and cared for, for her own safety.
LOL. Is there something you’re not telling us, Joe?
