Justice Dept. Weighs In AGAINST Protections for Gays in the Workplace/HYPOCRITE OF HYPOCRITES

HYPOCRITE of HYPOCRITE--Drumpf a serial philanderer and abuser of women has the nerve to deny law abiding human beings and taxpayers the rights that everyone else takes for granted!

Taking back human rights

It is not enough for these inhuman Cretans under Trump to prohibit transgender people from serving in the military, thousands of whom are already serving and spilling blood for us. Under Jeff Sessions
they are trying to dismember legal antidiscrimination law protecting ALL gay people as the "Justice Department argues landmark civil rights law doesn’t protect gay people."

Thankfully, this will be decided by the courts unless, of course, the Beast puts in right wing extremists judges who may side with the now insanely intolerant Justice Department. Take this to the extreme and soon gay people could be arrested, jailed, rounded up or worse providing a glimpse into what Fascism looks like.

Pastor Niemoller (1892–1984) was a prominent Protestant pastor who emerged as an outspoken public foe of Adolf Hitler and spent the last seven years of Nazi rule in concentration camps.

Niemöller is perhaps best remembered for the quotation:

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.
Moral of the story: Elections matter. RESIST!!!…/…/justice-gay-civil-rights-ac

We Can't

It seems to be Trump's plan to bad mouth the first senator, Jeff Sessions, who supported Trump and offered him his undying loyalty by now throwing Sessions under the bus. The word is Trump ultimately wants to perfect the plan to get those to occupy positions in the Justice Department who are Trump friendly and ultimately fire Mueller over what else -- the Trump/Russia collusion investigation. It may be difficult to find someone who wants that Justice Department position or any position of power in Trumpland as Trumpet could kick them to the curb in Hitlerian Night of the Long Knives (Google it) fashion when the mood strikes him to do so.

Some give Scaramucci, Trump's new "Communications" Director whose communiques sound like he came right out of the central casting of "Goodfellas." Wray with nearly unanimous support for FBI Director has as one of his illustrious clients defendant, Chris Christie. He helped him escape prison of the political Bridgegate while Christie's unter menchen lackeys got jail time. Sad.

All things, most especially Republican are supremely corrupt because this is the Party of money in a pay-to-play universe. Yes, I know Democrats play too but I aver not in such epic proportions. I do not know how moral philosophically adhering Republicans can feel good about themselves, sleep at night or look themselves in the mirror the next day when the Party to which they belong lies and most monumentally has as its commander-in-chief a man with no heart who lies all the time. This Party does not care about most of you!

Maybe I'm just a fool who thinks that in their hearts people are basically good at least they are in this nation. Right now it seems that a significant portion of this nation contains corrupt monsters and the naive many who place them in positions of death wielding power. Like 12 year old boy scouts to whom Trump spoke they do not know what developing an intellect and thoughtful reasoning is. In some sectors of this nation I suggest being stupid is something to which one should aspire. Remember Trump said he loves stupid people. Well, he got their vote.

Perhaps, the thought to Benjamin Franklin's famous response after the Constitution's creation "It's a Republic IF you can keep it" should be, unfortunately, we can't.

What changed?

Gay people were not automatically protected against discrimination for years. Then gay people were and are protected. What changed? Power changed but more importantly the flexibility and knowledge of human sexuality changed. Expert opinion change. The American Psychiatric Association changed. AIDS emerged and exposed many many of our beloved entertainers as gay. Most never knew that but some did and thought change in the law was impossible until it wasn't. We rejoiced but NOW we know the fight is NEVER over. Human rights like rights for persons of color are always threatened by many others who do not want it so...Answer: FIGHT FOR YOUR HUMAN RIGHTS. Society changes, knowledge increases. RESIST those who want to turn back the clock. It was NOT a happy place!!
