Millions of Americans are divided over President Trump’s transgender military ban. Some are concerned about military readiness, but most are worried about political correctness.
Rev. James Dobson came out in support of the transgender ban. The evangelical preacher praised President Trump for protecting our military from the destructive forces of political correctness, saying, “I support the president’s decision and commend this administration for having the courage to protect our military from what would only amount to an enormous and costly distraction.” (via WND)
In his last few months in office, former President Obama pushed through a policy allowing transgender people to serve openly in the military.
Obama understood that the policy would be destructive, and he waited until the very end of his second term before pushing the order through. The policy was scheduled to come into effect this summer, after Obama was sheltered from the ramifications.
Secretary of Defense, General James Mattis, delayed the implementation of the policy until next June, offering the military a year to study the impact of transgender service members.
President Trump announced on twitter earlier this week that the Obama-era policy would not be implemented and that transgender people could not serve openly in the military.
This is important to note because transgender people were never allowed to openly serve. President Trump did not change any policy — he only stopped a destructive order from going through.
Democrats are acting like the military had already integrated transgender troops into the military. In reality, President Trump is just maintaining the status quo.
Rev. Dobson praised the decision. “For eight years, the Department of Defense under President Obama went about the systematic and intentional transformation of the U.S. military, unnecessarily disrupting the world’s most elite fighting force from their most pressing and urgent requirement – keeping our country and its allies safe,” he explains.
“It is heartening to have a commander-in-chief who puts the expert opinions of his generals and military officials ahead of the destructive forces of political correctness and identity politics. I support the president’s decision and commend this administration for having the courage to protect our military from what would only amount to an enormous and costly distraction.” Dobson added.
The transgender military ban has nothing to do with discrimination. This is purely an effort to protect military effectiveness.
Many seem to forget that transgenderism is considered by real experts — such as former psychiatrist-in-chief for John Hopkins Hospital, Dr. Paul McHugh — to be a “mental disorder”. Our military is not a talk-therapy seminar — it is the world’s most elite fighting force.
