CPAC Speaker Calls for "Transgenderism" To Be Eradicated

I read that on another site a bit ago.  I won't say here what my first impulse was, but the 2 x 4 is still out in the garage.

CPAC is all lights and show, with no substance.  An echo chamber.  It stopped mattering when many, many people wanted Ron Paul but got Romney on the ballot instead.  And hopefully fewer people will listen or approve after this.  

 

Not sure who this Michael Knowles character is, but it sounds like he's a real prize.  I haven't totally accepted the concept of "trans genocide," but when people start using words like "eradication" it definitely begins to sound believably genocide-y to me. 😧

He's an actor whose biggest claim to fame is a role in the movie Hollyweird. He's also a commentator on The Daily Wire. He also "wrote" a book called "Reasons to Vote For Democrats: A Comprehensive Guide." It consisted of 256 blank pages and a bibliography. Sarcasm Alert-- I think his book content may very well speak for itself regarding his intellectual prowess and critical thinking ability...

I saw clips of his talk.

I don't see how "transgenderism must be eradicated" can be interpreted other than as calling for "genocide".   Saying "there can’t be a genocide” of trans people because, [as] he claimed, “Transgender people is not a real ontological category” is absurd.

It's okay to kill us off since we're not real people.

This stuff is getting scary.

They manufacture the belief that transgender people are not real by referring to us as an "ism" rather than a people.

Exactly. These Republicans are openly anti-American and anti-Christian. Our country is based on; "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all people are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights," So believed our founders and Jesus Christ. They are traitors to say that.

@Ivy  "Ontological" category.  I actually had to look that word up, and I wonder what percentage of this guy's audience even knows.   But I think you're right - he's meaning that somehow we aren't real people.  Like, did I wake up this morning and pass through the walls because I don't really exist?  🙄 

 

On the bright side, I suppose that if I don't really exist then I don't have to pay my taxes....

Even after the US entered World War II, the government did not make the rescue of Jews a major war aim."

I recently watched a documentary on this.  FDR and Co. were afraid they would lose support for the war if they made it about helping Jewish people.  They downplayed the holocaust until they just couldn't anymore.  Hate is a remarkable thing.

 

I read some comments on a stream about the film clip.  Most of them agreed with Michael Knowles.  They seemed to think that we would all just see reason, get cured, and go back to being cis-het.  I guess because being transgender isn't real anyway and we will accept that.

That sounds like a great bill Davie.  All this right wing hate provocation is most likely seen by the majority for what it is.

Unfortunately the majority doesn't control the outcome of the elections.

In his mind, he doesn't see being transgender as biological.  He specifically stated that.  (And misguided trans activists, particularly in the UK, share the blame for promoting that view.)  So he isn't calling for killing us, just for brainwashing us.  Not extermination camps, but massive conversion therapy or re-education camps.  Like that makes it any better.

My extended vocabulary, which I hope I use wisely here, puts me in mind of his being PSEUDO-INTELLECTUAL and so full of himself that a Caterpillar 20 ton skip bucket cannot move him. Stuck up <bleep bleep>

@VickySGV  "Pseudo-intellectual" is a good description.  I mean, unless one is a philosophy professor, I can't imagine average folks using "ontological" in a sentence in day to day life.  Yet, he can't seem to figure out how "eradicate" and "genocide" can be related....something average middle school kids would know.  Big words don't make a person smart.

I grew up in a household of pseudo-intellectuals; both of my parents were and my brothers became the same way. Mr. Knowles certainly appears to cast in the same mold. While many professions have specialized vocabularies, truly intelligent people realize that their professional vocabulary has little to no place in everyday speech. 

 

Vicky, you are spot on for calling this person out on it!

More of the same B.S.  All the speakers were competing to see who could be the biggest H8er of trans people.

I agree, Carolyn Marie. Their smug faces when spewing such idiocy says it all. I sometimes wonder how atrocities like what happened during WWII could have ever happened. What mindset could lead to such a thing? Well, I think we finally have our answer.

I see a parallel between what happened during WW II and what is happening now. The vast majority of Germans were not members of the unhealthy politics party, and did not actively share the beliefs of their leadership.  But they stood around and let it happen.  Apathy, I guess.  

 

In the same way, I know that the vast majority of people living around me in my red state don't share the anti-trans views of those seeking political power in their name.  But most don't care enough to say anything against it.

First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a socialist.

Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a trade unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

If being transgender is not a real thing, and we are all just deluded or pretending, what problem does that actually cause?  Is a man dressing as a woman any worse than a man dressing as a comic book character or Mickey Mouse?  

 

I may be missing the point, but I can't see what the massive threat to society is.

I didn't mean that these people are not a threat to us.  I meant that I can't understand why they think that we are a threat to them.

These CPAC Republicans just do not have the mental, emotional, or psychological capacity to understand what we go through. They have no empathy.

 

The problem isn't that they believe that crap.  The problem is that good people do not speak up.  Where are the doctors, the psychologists, the researchers, all of whom know better? 

 

Ordinary people will listen to both sides of an issue and make a choice about who is right.  On average, they will assess reality as being somewhere between the two positions.  But when they only hear the nutjobs, they will assess reality as being halfway between the idiocy and ... nothing.  So they might not believe everything the nuts say, but they will believe "idiocy lite".

 

The media are complicit in this.  The cover the squeaky wheel, which is them.  Even when they cover both sides of a story, they treat both sides as though they had equal merit, which is not the case here.  Giving equal coverage to both sides of an issue is inherently biased in favour of the side with less merit.  We need to light a fire under our allies so they stand up and present a stronger case than the haters.

Very good points Kathy! I do not know what the pain point will be for others to speak out about the manner and style we are being treated.

 

This is the thing.  Here in flyover country, people have talked about revolution and secession for most of my life.  But it hasn't happened yet.  My county and a couple others came close to declaring an independent economic zone in 2020, and we significantly developed our own infrastructure toward that goal...but that was because food supplies, employment, local autonomy, etc. were being severely threatened by both the state government and the feds.  Not to mention the civil unrest and other disruption.  

 

By bringing up that example, I mean to illustrate that the pain point is pretty severe for people to get out and do anything.  It would take hunger, even higher prices than what we see now, large scale unemployment, or laws so onerous that everybody is a target.  Since trans people are a very small minority, I'm not sure that there will be enough disruption to the average person's life for them to overcome inertia/apathy.

First - This is undeniably a genocide, and it has been for a while. If you want to see my reasoning, I made a long post on the topic here.

 

Second - The use of "transgenderism" mirrors a lot of unhealthy politics propaganda back in pre-WWII Germany, where the propaganda would usually say "Judaism" rather than "the Jews". At this point, it is not an exaggeration to say that the republican party is the modern unhealthy politics party.

 

Anyone who wants to say, "it's just a small portion of uninfluential pundits, the party itself is not as aggressive", a response I got a lot while discussing the issue, is willfully ignorant. This is CPAC, the largest and most influential gathering of conservatives in the world. Trans genocide is no longer a radicalization fear tactic used by the most radical conservative pundits, it's the party line, the bedrock of modern conservative ideology.

      Totally.   Coffee is too expensive this morning, but last month I hunted down some nice ginger and had that stored well in the meat drawer of my fridge that I don't use for meat.  Made a nice pot of ginger tea and played piano while it was boiling.   D-7  Bbmaj7  G-7  Bbmaj7  A7#9  repeat the cycle   Cmaj  Emin  Amin G  F  C/E (or is it E-?)  D (lydian!)  G   Fun stuff.  The Navy had me playing Jamiroquai's High Times on bass around South America.  Fun bass line on a 5 string bass!  I played it for the first time in 25 years the other day.  Sure was fun!  Not too into the lyrics.  Jay Kay is wonderfully melodic though.   Put on Allentown, sitting at my computer.  Someone has to do this work.  I can't really afford it, but I need a battery for my watch with hands.  I'm likely going to ride the bus there because I'm working on healing my feet.  I hate the bus, but this guy at that store can replace the battery in 20 seconds.  I'm lost without my watch.  My stupid clock in the kitchen went on "power saver" mode and the clock goes to sleep.  Not a good way to cook.  I use my watch for all kinds of things though.  I've got my old men's Timex on the ear of the stained glass owl in the entry.  It has a dead bat too.

      Funny thing.  When I went to school I was writing with my right hand (I'm right handed) but holding the pencil like a left handed person.  They made me change that, and to be sure it was better for me.  Of course my handwriting is still barely legible.  It's just a curious thing. I'm a kinda mixed up person.

      Bathroom usage law based on chromosomes is quite irrational. Just within the intersex community there are quite a few problems with it with those that have full or partial androgen insensitivity. For instance, I have XY chromosomes but also have a uterus and fallopian tubes. My breasts are real and I have had them since puberty. I was also born without a penis to speak of, but I do have testes.    I don't look like the average guy, and much less now that I don't hide my DDD's behind baggy layered clothes.    Physically I am much more female than male, but my birth certificate and chromosomes say something else.    I most definitely don't fit in the men's room. Last time I tried everyone stopped what they were doing and stared at me until I left. I have used the family restroom in public ever since (all gender). The Texas law basically leaves only one choice for intersex individuals. Family restroom or pee your pants. 🙄

      I had a similar experience.  My father, doing geneological research, googled the name of the tiny hamlet in Scotland where his family came from.  He was surprised to find a request from someone in Australia wanting to find his birth mother.  The mother was named as my father's sister, from that same tiny hamlet.  There was no possibility of mistaken identity: there could not be two people of that name in such a small place.   The family knew that my aunt had had a child out of wedlock, but no one had kept track of the child.  And of course, the times being what they were, knowledge of the event was kept on a need-to-know basis.    My father contacted the person in Australia.  He gained a nephew and I gained a cousin that I never knew I had.  We kept in touch until my cousin passed away a few years ago.  I am still in occasional contact with his widow.

      I can relate to that, I started my oral estrogen back in 2017.. less than 6 months I was wearing jeans size 40, then afterward my hips started to curve so I can fit a jeans size 12 or 14.. my treating doctors suggested for me to take before and after pictures and show it to them during my next doctor's appointment.

      Good morning from the backyard patio,   Parker and I are outside enjoying the morning sounds of the day. It’s was filled with the beautiful sounds of birds, bugs and kids off at a distant playground. My coffee was hot, strong and black. This came crashing down as the Monday morning trash truck came into the neighborhood. We’re the first neighborhood for the trash route since a city ordinance keeps all commercial workers limited to a 07:00 start time. It was Parker’s first time experiencing this noise and physical vibrations as the operator slammed the articulated arm around picking up individual trash bins. Parker ran from the fence back to the patio swing looking back at the monstrous truck causing such a commotion. His head tilted, ears perked, and body language indicating curiosity.    My second cup of coffee is settling down as the birds return to singing their calls, and Parker ravages his toy rabbit.    Hugs and best wishes as you take on the week. Happy Monday!   Mindy🌈🐛🏳️‍⚧️🦋
