The Left simply doesn’t get it…
They don’t understand that what freedom TRULY is.
They think they figured it out by making it all about equality – but the fact is that there is nothing that is truly “equal” in this world.
The fact of the matter is that we should all be concentrating on equality. I know that sounds weird coming from the guy that just bashed the Left for their obsession with it, but thye problem has less to do with the concept than with the way they go about trying to get it.
You see, the Left only knows how to balance the scales by taking rights away from some to give to others. That’s how they think equality is achieved…
But the truth is very different.
Equality is achieved when all have the same rights and freedoms, regardless of what group/groups someone falls into based on their color, gender, religion, or political affiliation…
And under a system like that, you don’t need to take rights away from others to achieve that goal.
This difference between the Right and Left in their solutions to issues is glaringly obvious: the Left loves to take things away to balance the scales, while the Right tries to add things to make it more even.
It’s Not About Genders… It’s About FREEDOM
This is being highlighted right now by President Joe Biden’s new gender policy, especially when it comes to trans athletes in high school sports.
By FORCING biological women to compete against trans women, he took their right to fair and safe competition away from them.
Biden’s policies put them in danger of getting injured while going up against faster, stronger athletes in sports where contact often happens…
And it also takes the fairness out of the competition. Very few women can match the strength or speed of trans athletes who have had the benefit of testosterone in their system, even if it was only for a very short time.
But the Left doesn’t get this…
The Left thinks that objections to this policy stems from the Right being transphobic and not wanting trans athletes to succeed.
That has NOTHING to do with it. We want ALL Americans to have the same opportunities and freedoms, regardless their gender identity or with whom they share a bed.
Our favorite Democrat dingbat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez proved this point by tweeting some of her trademark ridiculousness on this subject.
In a tweet replying to a different idiot calling the Conservatives fight against trans athletes “removing rights from women,” AOC said, “Trans kids are awesome, incredible, beautiful, and wonderful. Bigotry is not. Republicans need to stop obsessing over other people’s gender identity bc frankly it’s very weird and they’re doing a lot of harm to children who are just trying to be themselves.”

And here’s the thing…
Trans kids ARE awesome, incredible, beautiful, and wonderful…
But nobody is obsessing over anybody’s gender. We’re obsessing over everybody’s FREEDOMS and fighting for them tooth and nail whenever they’re attacked.
And, whether AOC or any of the other Leftists want to admit it, this is an attack on women’s liberty.
Their response is, as always, to take things away.
Why not a different solution?
Why not create a new division for these kids to compete in? Why do we have to take away the rights of girls who work hard just to have their sports recognized?
Why can’t we add something?
It just takes a little more work.
However, you can rest assured that, to Liberals, this isn’t about gender…
It never has been.
To the Right, it’s about freedom – freedom for ALL – and how to best preserve it when things get a little more complicated.
If only the Left understood that then maybe we could actually get along and get our country back on track…
You never know! Stranger things have happened!
