I pray y’all had a very wonderful Valentine’s Day!
Today’s missive will be short and to the point, as its absurdity does not need much explanation. It will simply offer an insight into the delusion, confusion, of the progressive socialist left’s radical gay agenda.
As reported by CNS News:
“Pete Buttigieg, one of the frontrunners in the campaign for the Democratic presidential campaign, says he would sign into law the “LGBTQ+ Suicide Prevention Act” and start an “LGBTQ+ suicide prevention task force” if he is elected president.
Buttigieg’s campaign website includes a page that is headlined: “Becoming Whole—A New Era for LGBTQ+ People in America.”
One section of this page carries the subtitle: “Pass the LGBTQ+ Suicide Prevent Act to address key risk factors for deaths by suicide.” It says:
“LGBTQ+ youth are four times more likely than their non-LGBTQ+ peers to attempt suicide. More than two in five transgender people attempt suicide, with numbers climbing even higher for transgender people who are people of color, mentally ill, low-income, or adolescent. Pete will work with Congress to pass the LGBTQ+ Suicide Prevention Act, which will launch a LGBTQ+ suicide prevention task force and address key risk factors for LGBTQ+ deaths by suicide.”
First of all, I want to emphasize a very important issue facing our nation. On my right hand, my salute hand, on the trigger finger, I wear a simple black ring. It is called the #22Kill ring. That ring signifies the, on average, 20-22 veterans who take their lives each day. If there were any segment of our population where we need to stress suicide prevention it is for those who have been willing to make the “last full measure of devotion” for our nation. As the saying goes, “All gave some, some gave all,” and we should not have any veteran feeling so lost, so despondent, so rejected and isolated that they take their own life. We need to wrap our arms around these men and women of honor, valor, and help them walk the “razor’s edge.”
What I find delusional and confusing about Buttigieg’s assertion is that it supports the American Psychiatric Association declaration that gender dysphoria is a mental condition. Yet, the hypocrisy of it all is that the progressive socialist left is supporting the LGBTQ+ agenda to our young people, creating confusion.
Now, what we see is that they want government spending, a task force, to rectify a problem, a situation, that their ideological agenda support, promotes, and advances. All one has to do is take a gander at the sex education curriculum that the Austin (Texas) Independent School District voted 5-0 last fall, to instruct to 3rd-8th graders.
So, let me get this right Mayor Pete: you now want to create a task force to solve the problem that the left has created by teaching our children, youth, to mutilate their bodies? You want to spend government, taxpayer dollars, to set right the results of the ideological agenda being pushed in our society, to our children?Mayor @PeteButtigieg, you want to create a task force to solve the problem that the left has created by teaching our kids to mutilate their bodies?

Doggone Mayor Pete, you purposefully confuse our children — and adults — telling them that there are countless genders . . . that they can pick any one of them. Then, as they become depressed, and sadly take their lives, over the crap you are promulgating, you want to have a “gubmint” program to fix it?
How about this Petey, stop proliferating this agenda! How about you stop advocating for a mental condition that leads to people taking their lives? You are treating the symptom, not the real illness, which is the ideological agenda of the progressive socialist left.
Bottom line Mayor Pete, stop screwing around with God’s greatest creation. We are made in His image. When you alter, mutilate, and destroy that which He has created, it only leads to the destruction of the soul. The result is the sad tragic reality of suicide.
Now, come up with a plan to deal with Veteran suicide.
