WASHINGTON, DC – The hot debates over transgender bathrooms is proving to be another example of a tempest in a teacup. Once again, our first black U.S. president Barack Hussein Obama has brewed a new distraction to occupy America by spotlighting on a minor concern and turning it into a major storm.
In a recent Wall Street Journal article, President Obama is quoted as telling public school officials, “they should permit students to use the bathroom that matches their gender identity. School districts who do not comply could face lawsuits from the federal government or a loss of federal funding.”
By issuing such a threat, the President is ignoring the impact of his decree emotionally on the many other students who prefer using bathrooms limited to those representing their anatomical gender. He is also revealing a preferential commitment to a minuscule percentage of the population that “screams” to alter reality.
Author and Former Educator Joe David believes this is just another example of the multi-billion-dollar scam perpetrated by the establishment against education. By mounting this outrageous threat against the public schools, the President is diverting attention from the real problems in the schools, its failure to educate, and by so doing, encouraging its failure to continue
David points out that examples of school failure are everywhere. “Its graduates stand tall as living examples,” he said. “Many students who survive the deplorable conditions in the public schools today (i.e., drugs, gang wars, incompetent teachers, and much, much more) often graduate illiterate. They are taught to spew popular propaganda, with a limited capacity to understand conceptually the significance of their thoughts and actions.”
In David’s novel, The Fire Within, which was published in 1981, the author exposes this horror and identifies the solution. “I believe our responsibility is to educate students – to teach them to integrate ideas, and prove them logically, to think about ideas and understand them conceptually – and not waste intelligent minds on limiting life experiences.”
Although the circumstances surrounding the schools, which Joe David wrote about in the seventies and eighties have changed, it hasn’t been for the better. “The current debate over transgender bathrooms in our public schools is a superb example of how far we have drifted from sensible priorities in education,” he said in conclusion. “It should be a warning to the public how far our leaders are willing to go to destroy our school system.”
