Government Lawyers embrace and salivate over Equality Act, unconstitutional protected class legislation

Jun. 23, 2021

CHICAGO, Ill. (KFVS) - On June 23, Attorney General Kwame Raoul led a coalition of 25 attorneys general calling on the U.S. Senate to pass legislation that protects individuals from discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity

We have already witnessed the devastating consequences of “protected class legislation” being forced upon the American people, [The Americans with Disabilities Act] without their approval via a constitutional amendment granting the necessary power to Congress to adopt “appropriate legislation” over a subject matter in question.

Like the unconstitutional Americans with Disabilities Act, which usurped legislative power over a subject matter not entrusted to Congress, the Equality Act, if forced upon the people, will once again swing open the door for countless lawsuits from opportunists and fringe element activists, and would allow our bottom feeding scum sucking shyster lawyers to have a field day with the law, just as they did with the unconstitutional American’s with Disabilities Act.

The ADA Litigation Monster | Americans with Disabilities Act

“The notion that the ADA would not “lead endlessly to litigation” was also wrong. (See “The ADA Shakedown Racket,” Winter 2004.) ADA claims against employers filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), now numbering more than 26,000 per year, have become as common as sex-discrimination claims. And the volume keeps rising, as does the number of ADA lawsuits against employers filed in federal court yearly.”

The Equality Act is intentionally designed to put the muscle of government in the hands of a “protected class” [those participating in abnormal sexual behavior] who may then use that muscle to force the unwilling to engage in contracts and unwanted associations with them.

Keep in mind, the Equality Act is an attempt to subvert the American People’s inalienable right to be free to mutually agree in their contracts and associations, including their social and commercial activities.

How each person uses that freedom is a different discussion, and even though the choices made by some may appear to be grounded in absurd and repulsive beliefs and prejudices, and their choices reject an across the board inclusiveness based upon wrongheaded thinking, under what authority can one claim to refuse to defend their right to freedom of choice, while demanding their own freedom to choose shall be protected by the force of government? To do so indicates a bigoted belief . . . “inclusiveness for me but not for thee”.

The bottom line is, the Equality Act attempts to exercise legislative power proposed under the “Equal Rights Amendment” which was wisely rejected by the American people in the 1980s. It reads:

'Article–


'Section 1. Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex.

'Section 2. The Congress shall have the power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article.

‘Section 3. This article shall take effect 2 years after the date of ratification.’

The American people, having rejected the above mentioned “Equal Rights Amendment”, makes it crystal clear that the “Equality Act” is an attempt by our federal government to exercise legislative power not granted, and wisely rejected by the American people.

For those genuinely interested in some of the devastating consequences which would result if the “Equality Act”, H.R.5 — 117th Congress (2021-2022), was forced upon the people as the “rule of law”, I suggest you read the following article:

How the “Equality Act” Is Actually Unequal, Unfair, and Unjust

The article begins:

“The Equality Act is legislation that would massively overhaul our federal civil rights framework in order to mandate special privileges for sexual orientation and gender identity (SOGI), expand abortion access, and gut religious liberty—leaving many to suffer the consequences, including women, children, medical professionals, parents, teachers, students, families (including small business owners), the unborn, churches, religious organizations and schools, people of faith, and even those members of the LGBT community it claims to protect”

The Equality Act attempts to exercise legislative power proposed under the “Equal Rights Amendment” which was wisely rejected by the American people, and thus, to this degree, the Act is an attempted usurpation of legislative power not granted.

Equality Act appears to be stalled in the Senate

.

It seems that the so-called “Equality Act”, which would totally end the inalienable right of people being free to mutually agree in their contracts and associations, and that includes their social and commercial activities, is stalled in the Senate.

My personal view is, the only lawful way to legitimize the legislation found in the “Equality Act” is to delegate the power to Congress to adopt “appropriate legislation” over the subject matter in question via an amendment to our federal Constitution.

Any attempt by our federal government to use its force to impose the legislation found in the “Equality Act” would be a direct assault on the terms of our Constitution, and its demand for consent of the governed, which requires their approval under the terms found in Article V.

As one notable Supreme Court Justice put it:

“The public welfare demands that constitutional cases must be decided according to the terms of the Constitution itself, and not according to judges’ views of fairness, reasonableness, or justice.” – Justice Hugo L. Black ( U.S. Supreme Court Justice, 1886 - 1971) Source: Lecture, Columbia University, 1968

Sen. James Lankford nails the “Equality Act” for what it really is!

.

See Lankford: ‘The Equality Act Is Not About Equality’ - It’s About ‘Imposing and Prohibiting Disagreement’

June 25, 2021

“The Equality Act is not about equality. It’s about imposing and prohibiting disagreement. We’re Americans. We can respect each other and disagree. We can live next door to each other and disagree. Let’s prove it in this body by not passing the poorly named Equality Act but actually demonstrating what this act says it wants to demonstrate. Let’s treat each other with respect in our differences and honor us in that.”

Senator Lankford is absolutely correct about the deceptively named “Equality Act”. The Act is about its supporters imposing their will upon the entire population of the United States, and prohibiting the American people from exercising one of mankind’s most fundamental rights ____ the right to mutually agree in their contracts and associations, and this includes their social and commercial activities.

Let us all remember that our system of government reserves to the States and people therein, all powers not delegated to the United States by our federal Constitution. In essence, our founders created a big tent system, intentionally protecting the right of the people within the various states to regulate “. . . all the objects which, in the ordinary course of affairs, concern the lives, liberties, and properties of the people, and the internal order, improvement, and prosperity of the State.” And under this big-tent system, Massachusetts was the first state to legalize same sex marriage, confirming the system works, even for those wanting same sex marriages!

In addition, our founders also provided Article V, an amendment process in our federal Constitution to accommodate necessary change at the federal level, but only by consent of the governed as laid out in Article V.

But instead of embracing our constitutional system, those backing the “Equality Act”, including members of Congress who took an oath to support and defend our written Constitution, are quite comfortable to allow, and even encourage, their will being imposed upon the entire population of the United States by enforcing legislation [the Equality Act] encompassing a subject matter [sex] not granted by the people to Congress as required by Article V, with the exception being the 19th Amendment, which does grant power to Congress to adopt and enforce “appropriate legislation” regarding “sex”, but specifically limited as follows:

Amendment XIX

“The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex.”

“Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation .”

So, the question remains, where in the Constitution has Congress been delegated power to adopt and enforce "appropriate legislation" to forbid distinctions made within the States based upon sex, and likewise forbid distinctions made based upon sex in the people’s social and commercial activities within the various state borders?"

And let us all remember the protection which our Constitution’s Tenth Amendment declares in crystal clear language : “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States, respectively, or to the people.”

"If the Constitution was ratified under the belief, sedulously propagated on all sides that such protection was afforded, would it not now be a fraud upon the whole people to give a different construction to its powers?"___ Justice Story

On Friday, President Biden once again urged Congress to pass the Equality Act, which has hit a roadblock in the Senate. The landmark legislation would amend the 1964 Civil Rights Act and extend federal protections to LGBTQ+ Americans. Rep. David Cicilline (D-RI) and Rep. Marie Newman (D-IL) joined NBC’s Joshua Johnson to discuss where the bill stands and their own personal connections to Pride.

Those who support this legislation becoming the rule of law without our federal Constitution granting legislative power over the subject matter in question, certainly do not take “pride” in supporting and defending our federal constitution. If they did, they would not approve the “Equality Act” being forced upon the people without their consent, and would instead be supporting a constitutional amendment granting power to Congress to adopt “appropriate legislation” over the subject matter in question as other amendments have done, including the 19th Amendment, which grants power to Congress to adopt “appropriate legislation” regarding “sex”, as is limited by the first clause of the amendment, i.e.,

“The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex.”

It is absolutely disappointing how our Fifth Column media and their Yellow Journalists fawn over adopting of the “Equality Act” and ignore Congress, nowhere in our federal Constitution, has been delegated power to enact and enforce the legislation found in the “Equality Act”.

Let us all remember that our system of government reserves to the States and people therein, all powers not delegated to the United States by our federal Constitution.

I am surprised that Democrats named it the “Equality Act”. The new buzz word is equity ( = equal outcomes).

Of course, by the logic of equity a lesbian who refuses to sleep with women with penises is transphobic.

Yes, how dare we take care of the disabled. Don’t they realize they are needlessly taking up resources that could be better spent on people who are normal?? I think about that every time I park in a handicap parking space, dragging my portable oxygen around with me.

Needless to say, after this part of the OP, I didn’t bother reading anything else.

If this is the attitude that’s going to be dominant around here, I’m outta here. Have fun folks!

Sorry you’re on portable oxygen.

I think all the fuss with the “Equality Act” indicates many of its supporters may have an inferiority complex, and is why they want to use government force to compel the unwilling to associate and engage in commercial intercourse with them.

During the 1970s when I was doing a lot of work out in Fire Island, the Pines and Cherry Grove, where successful members of the “gay community” congregated, they seemed to not give two twits how others viewed their life style, and would never stoop so low as to want to force others to associate or do business with them. But then again, most in this group were successful and had no feelings of insecurity or inferiority. Almost all simply wanted to go about their life style as they saw fit, and without forcing themselves upon others.

Well, had you read further you would have learned about the unintended consequences of “protected class legislation”, and how it allows our bottom feeding scum sucking shyster lawyers to have a field day with such laws, just as they did with the unconstitutional American’s with Disabilities Act.

Rep. Hagedorn, who defeated Democrat Feehans, confirms Equality Act would revoke parental consent!

See: Hagedorn Sides with Parents in Defending Free Speech and Freedom of Conscience

May 17, 2019 Press Release

WASHINGTON – Rep. Jim Hagedorn (MN-01) voted against H.R. 5, liberal Democrat legislation to scrap the legal definitions of biological sex, force transgender curriculum on children, undermine parents and expand abortion.

H.R. 5 adds “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” to the Civil Rights Act as protected classes, revoking parental rights and consent for minor children. Legal protection under these classes would no longer require an objective standard, medical diagnosis or permanent intent.

Nothing in H.R. 5 stops a biological boy from claiming to be a girl in order to compete against girls in competitive sports. It also would open the door to transgender curriculum in schools, even without parental consent. Schools would be forced to provide biological males with access to private spaces currently reserved for females, including restrooms, locker rooms and showers.

Ignoring religious rights of faith-based women’s shelters, H.R. 5 would force such shelters to house any man self-identifying as a woman. Speaker Nancy Pelosi also politicized these provisions in the Democrats’ version of the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA). Hagedorn voted twice for a clean reauthorization of VAWA to protect women.

H.R. 5 would revoke parental consent and normalize gender transitioning of minors, often a life-altering and irreversible procedure.

In other words, part of the “Equality Act” intentionally opens the door for government schools to brainwash innocent children, and fill their heads with sexual propaganda rather than limiting their teaching to the three Rs’

image

The rascals behind this so-called Equality Act, certainly want a whole lot more than the equal rights they allege to want. They also want to use government power to propagandize innocent children into embracing sexual deviant behavior.

If the Equality Act were imposed as a federal “rule of law”, it would not only subvert the human right of American citizens to be free to mutually agree in their contracts and associations ___ it would allow federal employees to dictate almost every aspect of the American peoples’ social and commercial activities.

John. This is very interesting. I think you hit the nail on the head when you commented on the inferiority complex. There are a lot who suffer from that.

Well, it was not that I hit the nail on the head about a large segment of the “gay community” suffering from feelings of insecurity and inferiority. This is what I gathered from some very finically and socially successful members of this very community when I was engaged in business activities out in Fire Island.

The “Equality Act” seems to represent a phantasy of a radical segment within the “gay community” that government force is an appropriate way to overcome and alter the reality of the distinctions between men and women, and to compel a social acceptance of that which is not reality, and in the process the insecurity and inferiority will vanish among this radical segment of the “gay community” which is pushing the Equality Act.

Unfortunately, If the Equality Act were imposed upon the American people as a federal “rule of law” and without their consent, it would not only subvert the human right of American citizens to be free to mutually agree in their social and commercial activities ___ it would allow federal bureaucrats to dictate almost every aspect of the American peoples’ social and commercial activities.

I strongly suggest people actually take the time and study the Equality Act, and how far reaching it is, not to mention it would be a usurpation of legislative power not granted to Congress by the American people.

I appreciate your approval. Unfortunately, we have too many spineless “journalists” and news commentators, who are afraid or unwilling to address this notoriously evil attempt to usurp legislative power not granted, presumably because they will be called names [homophobe, racist, sexist, etc.] by the evil actors attempting to impose their will upon the entire population of the United States and deprive the American people of exercising a fundamental human right . . . the right to mutually agree in their social and commercial activities.

What I cannot understand is, why is our mainstream media [MSNBC, CNN, ABC, CBS, etc. and their personalities e.g., Rachel Maddow, Don Lemon, Mika and Joe, Brzezinski, Joe Scarborough, Wolf Blitzer, etc.] afraid or unwilling to address and expose this notoriously evil attempt, the so-called Equality Act, for what it really is designed to accomplish, which is usurping legislative power not granted and dissolving the observance of common sense distinctions between women and men, especially those designed to protect and benefit women?

The “Equality Act”, if imposed upon the American people would:

• Assume legislative power over a subject matter not granted to Congress [excluding of course the 19th Amendment’s limited delegation of legislative power over “sex”];

• Deprive American citizens within the various states the fundamental right to be free to mutually agree in their social and commercial activities:

• Would forbid common sense distinctions being made between women and men such as all female sports events; women’s only and men’s only bathrooms and locker rooms and other gathering places; and would end the obvious truth that females have sex-based rights to privacy where males are not welcome.

• Allow federal bureaucrats to dictate almost every aspect of the American peoples’ social and commercial activities.

The bottom line is the Equality Act attempts to exercise legislative power proposed under the “Equal Rights Amendment” which was wisely rejected by the American people, and thus, to this degree, the Act is an attempted usurpation of legislative power not granted.

Genitals are not biological, they are social constructs.

I would argue the personalities you mentioned are not mainstream media. They’re commercial opinionators like our host, Tucker, et al. They have no obligation to do anything other than opine and stir up feelings. That is their job and they do it well.

I’m a lefty and see through each of the above opinionators’ huckstering, as I hope you do with those on the right.

I fervently hope commercial, partisan news dies before we do.
