Political Week In Review 3-3-2024

 Anti-trans rhetoric and policy dominates CPAC, where Republicans invoke the Bible and a ‘war on families’

When he addressed this year’s Conservative Police Action Conference [CPAC], right-wing commentator Michael Knowles addressed what he called a “kerfuffle” from last year’s remarks, when he said “transgenderism must be eradicated from public life.”

Last year’s statement – widely seen as a call for violence against trans people – was condemned by LGBT+ civil rights groups and the White House, amid an avalanche of anti-trans legislation aimed at young people across the country and fears of abuse and violence fueled by the denial of trans existence.

At this year’s CPAC, he said he stands by his “observation” that “men can’t become women,” and that the backlash to his statement reveals the “identity crisis” facing an America in decline without religion.

  1. The cartoon left out crime and traffic as problems that Bruce Blakemore is sticking his head in the sand over too. He'd rather appeal to the folks that brought you George Santos by addressing a trans "problem" that just never existed.
