Barack Obama’s outrageous tyrannical decree requiring “transgender-compliant” restrooms, showers and locker rooms in all public places across America has generated a massive backlash, with 12 states revolting against it in just the first 24 hours.
But to many Black Americans, it was beyond disgraceful when Attorney General Loretta Lynchcompared the trans bathroom issue to Jim Crow laws — drawing a comparison between the “struggles” of “transgender individuals” and the violent civil rights battles of Blacks in the 1960s.
And now a group of furious Black pastors is denouncing this comparison, and slamming Obama for betraying MLK’s legacy:
“It’s a gross insult to all of those who marched with Dr. King and faced fire hoses and hatred in the name of equality.”
The group is calling on “all black Americans to stand up and fight for the sanctity of Martin Luther King’s accomplishments.”
With one poll showing Obama’s trans bathroom edict is opposed by a stunning 73% of Black voters, this divisive position could set the stage for a huge battle that could influence the results of the 2016 election…and hurt Hillary badly.
The president of the Coalition of African-American Pastors (CAAP) says that the Obama administration’s assertion that single-sex bathrooms are discriminating against gender-confused individuals in much the same way that blacks experienced discrimination in the United States is a “gross insult” to all who fought for equality for African-Americans.
“There is simply no relation between the struggles that Black Americans have faced and the desire of a tiny minority group to violate the dignity and privacy of women and girls,” said Rev. Bill Owens in a statement sent to Breitbart News. “To suggest some sort of equivalence is a gross insult to all of those who marched with Dr. King and faced fire hoses and hatred in the name of equality.”
Owens reacted Friday to the Obama administration’s imposition of gender ideology on the United States. In the wake of a new North Carolina law that protects the privacy and safety of women and children in public rest rooms, the Department of Justice (DOJ) announced a lawsuit against North Carolina alleging the law violates the civil rights of gay and transgender individuals to use the bathrooms of their choice.
Attorney General Loretta Lynch argued that a person’s choice of “gender identity” supersedes communities’ common sense privacy rules that women use women’s bathrooms and men use men’s bathrooms.
The U.S. Department of Education also decreed Friday that schools must accommodate a tiny number of apparently gender confused children by taking single-sex bathrooms, single-sex locker rooms, and sexual privacy away from almost 55 million American students in 100,000 K-12 public schools.
Owens describes legislation to amend the Civil Rights Act to prohibit discrimination on the basis of sex, sexual orientation, or gender identity — which Obama supports — “an affront to the Black community and a theft of Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.’s legacy.”
“Black Pastors will not allow the homosexual and transgender community to rob Black Americans of their battle for civil rights!” he asserts. “If the Rev. Martin Luther King were alive to see this today, he would be angered in the same way that Jesus was angered when he turned over the tables of the money changers.”
Wow. These are fighting words.
Owens referred to attempts by the Obama administration to make the LGBT political and social engineering agendas the equivalent of civil rights a “theft and outrageous extortion and usurpation of the Civil Rights Movement.”
“We call all black Americans to stand up and fight for the sanctity of Martin Luther King’s accomplishments for our race,” he said. “There is simply no relation between the struggles that Black Americans have faced and the desire of a tiny minority group to violate the dignity and privacy of women and girls.”
“CAAP calls on all those who oppose this unwarranted expansion of the Civil Rights Act to contact their representatives in Congress today and let them know how you feel about this bill.”
With Hillary certain to back Obama’s insane decree, one wonders if he wants her to lose, as this could cost her tens of thousands of votes in what could be one of the closest presidential elections in history.
