Shelby Kendall is a biological male, but his Florida driver's license lists him as a woman.
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 drivers 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 Kendalls drivers 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 drivers 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 southeasts San Francisco.
Fast forward just four days after the traffic stop. Kendall went to the police departments 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 todays 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 cant 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.
Orwells 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 wasnt 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 Magliones turn to crucify Brinton on the cross of politically correct falsehood.
First, Maglione said correct department procedure is to go by information on a drivers 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 officers 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 didnt.
Third, just to be absolutely clear that Brintons honesty was intolerably inappropriate, Maglione noted, I believe the departments 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, isnt 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 dont tell the truth, or worse, cant see the truth, whats the average citizen to do?
If the law says black is white and unreality is reality, whats 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 Im not holding my breath.
In a time of deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act, Orwell penned. Lets be revolutionaries, shall we?
Lol - I’m afraid I would have called HIM and man as well.
I can’t help it though, I was born this way.
A pear can call itself a cauliflower but it is still a fruit.
I would not call him a her either . . . though I might say “it!” . . . strike that, I WOULD say “it!”
If hes a woman he also lied about his age. That person is not 48 years old unless a semi has ridden over him several times.
It’s remarkable how fast the left managed to get this gender BS adopted.
>>>A pear can call itself a cauliflower but it is still a fruit.<<<
So, if someone were to identify himself/herself/itself as a fruit (I know . . . I know, huh!) are they still eligible to receive ‘human’ rights?
I don’t think so . . . . . . . .
The government needs to get completely out of the “male” “female” argument and just list people’s chromosomal structure. XX and XY. If someone has something different, list it.
Liberals are scum.
Every liberal is a violent totalitarian thug.

Biological evidence says it is man.
Take this to court and lay it out on the table.
Yeah, no kidding. That individual is 3 years younger than I am and looks like an extra decade or more of hard road, cheap booze and bad food.
I guess FReeping keeps a person looking and feeling young.
Is there no stopping this madness?
Agreed...and worth repeating.
I have a male nephew who is afflicted with that illness. I decline to address him by his girl name or to call him “her” or “she”. If Mrs. JimRed’s family members don’t like it, they are free to exclude me from family gatherings.
Prayers that he be delivered from that mental defect, but that is not likely without the insistence upon treatment by his own parents and sibling. Unfortunately they appear to be supporting his delusions.
That face looks like the result of years of alcohol and maybe cigarettes or other things. It looks to me like the face of someone in their late 60s or early 70s.
Simple, government tyranny. We must fight back.
Rather than discipline the cop they should charge the guy with lying on his form.
I ask again, what legal penalties are there if you presume someone is transgendered and, in reality, they are just fugly?
