Greene County Democrats stand with transgender community after Trump tweets

(From Greene County Democrats)

This morning, we began our day less united as American citizens. The 45th President of the United States of America announced via Twitter that he will be banning transgender patriots from serving in their country’s defense. This is more than appalling. This decision highlights the venom that is the foundation of the Trump Administration.

Not only does his callous choice weaken the U.S. Military, it dishonors all who have served. This policy tells veterans that their sacrifice can be nullified in 140 characters or less.

Sixty-nine years ago, today, on July 26th, 1948, President Harry S. Truman ordered the establishment of the President’s Committee on Equality Treatment and Opportunity in the Armed Services. It was established with the mission of integrating the segregated military. President Trump should look to history for guidance as to how America should treat its service members.

In Isaiah 6:8, Jesus asked, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?" When these transgender heroes stood up and said, "Here am I. Send me!” Trump is saying, “No thanks.”

The Greene County Democratic Central Committee denounces this small and petty President’s policy change and we stand with our brothers and sisters in the LGBTQA+ community.

OK, so you Democrats now have a lock on the tranny vote in the 7th Congressional District.

What an act of extreme moral courage. Why, looks like Billy Long is going to get re-elected again in 2018 by a forty-percent or more margin.

Still wondering why nobody takes you seriously around here except others like you Turner? Never mind, keep it up. The rest of us will never get tired of winning against such pathetic opposition.

I find your remarks to be strange, considering that up to this point, I have had one post from the Greene County Democrats opposing the president's stance and two posts, from Vicky Hartzler and the Eagle Forum, praising it.

So nobody takes me seriously because I have a post that actually shows that not everyone approves.

If you want to go to a blog that only features items that meet with your approval, please feel free to go somewhere else.

I am wondering why anyone would take your comments seriously, except, of course, for others like you.

President Truman was integrating blacks. I know that many will disagree with me, but that is COMPLETELY different.
The scripture reference from Isaiah is from his commission by God. Pretty much taken out of context.
Please explain how someone who is transgender is automatically a hero.
Trump was elected by the people who have been ignored for far too long. Our standards and beliefs have been stomped on and belittled as "old fashioned" or "intolerant." We have not been represented or listened to by our elected officials who are supposed to be representing US not themselves and their wallets.

Comments like those of 8:57 are ridiculous.
Even if I disagree, I want to be informed about what others are thinking. I thought that was being mature.

Another degenerate group clamors under the circus freak show tent, that is the Democrat party.

@9:41 "Trump was elected by the people who have been ignored for far too long" You mean the electoral college? You haven't been listened to or represented because you're bigots, and you're in the minority. Soon you'll be gone and the world will gleefully move forward.
