Tomorrow is July 1 and Canada Day, in which our neighbor to our north will be celebrating its 150th birthday.
And as those celebrations happen across their home and native land trans Canadians will be doing ao with the knowledge that their human rights are protected in Canadian federal law and in the laws of all Canadian provinces and territories.
I can talk about that later, but have to get to this week’s Friday business of calling out the fool, fools or fools that are everywhere.
Honorable mention number one is Canadian Senator Don Plett (Conservative-AB) who fought C-16 and pimped anti-trans slurs to do so.
Honorable mention number two is a group award for the REAL Women of Canada, the transphobic kissing cousins to the TERF’s and right wing Republicans.
Honorable mention number three is Rep. Pete Olson (R-TX) Olson continued the GOP War on Women by attacking the ACA mandate that requires that prenatal and maternity issues be covered.
Honorable mention number four is Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) who keeps trying to push Trumpcare on this country when millions of people and members of his own caucus are telling him they don’t want it .
Honorable mention number five is deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. The daughter of Mike Huckabee tried to claim in a recent
propaganda dissemination session press conference that Donald Trump has never incited violence.
Honorable mention number six is Kellyanne Conway. Propaganda Barbie continues to make an azz out of herself by claiming she’s happy with the way Dear Cheeto Leader treats women, questioning the media’s patriotism, and other assorted gems this week.
This week’s Shut Up Fool winner is Rep. Vicky Hartzler (R-MO) who is Exhibit A of what I talk about when I say the most dangerous transphobe is one that has legislative power.
Hartzler compared transgender service members to Vladimir Putin, ISIS and North Korea, and then backed up that idiotic her anti-trans rhetoric by introducing and later withdrawing an amendment that would have banned transpeople from serving in the military
We already have over 15,000 trans people in all branches of the US Armed forces proudly serving our country and more who would like to do do despite your party’s unhinged resistance to the idea.
Vicky, trans people aren’t a danger to the United States. It’s ignorant transphobic people like you who are. And you’re even more dangerous to our country because you are a fool with the power tot write legislation
Rep. Vicky Hartzler, shut up fool!
