Few things are as important to the future of a nation as its children, cliche as it sounds. In fact, nothing is. That’s why former president and 2024 contender Donald Trump pledged that his first move as president would be to go after the toxic ideology that’s effectively poisoned the mind of a generation of kids: radical gender theory.
In a newly released policy proposal, Donald Trump’s 2024 presidential campaign has made clear that purging America’s education system of these toxic ideologies is a top priority of the former president. Having decried “left-wing gender insanity” as an “act of child abuse,” Trump proposed a comprehensive plan to stop the “chemical, physical, and emotional mutilation of our youth.”
Trump vowed that on “day one” he would revoke President Joe Biden’s “cruel policies” that embolden young people to receive wrong-sex hormones, puberty blockers, and genital mutilating surgeries. Declaring war on one of gender ideology’s most stalwart advocates, the deep state, Trump insisted that if he retakes the White House, he would “sign a new executive order” to make the federal bureaucracy “cease all programs that promote the concept of sex and gender transition at any age.”
He went on to propose legislative steps that would end the taxpayer subsidization of transgender insanity, saying: “I will then ask Congress to permanently stop federal taxpayer dollars from being used to promote or pay for these procedures and pass a law prohibiting child sexual mutilation in all 50 states.”
Trump pledged to change federal health and safety standards so that “any hospital or health care provider that participates in the chemical or physical mutilation of minor youth” will no longer qualify for Medicaid or Medicare and will be immediately terminated from the programs. He also said he would “support the creation” of a “private right of action for victims to sue doctors who have unforgivably [mutilated the bodies of] minor children.”
The former president indicated that during a second term, he would instruct the Department of Justice to investigate Big Pharma and the various hospital networks within its sphere of influence that “deliberately covered up horrific long-term side-effects” of transgenderism and whether cross-sex hormones have been “illegally marketed” to impressionable demographics.
During a second Trump administration, the Department of Education could leverage “civil rights violations for sex discrimination” against teachers and school officials who suggest to children that they are anything other than their biological sex. Offending schools could face the removal of federal funding. Trump also explained that his administration would implement a new credentialing body for teachers in which “positive education about the nuclear family, the roles of mothers and fathers, and celebrating — rather than erasing — the things that make men and women different and unique” would be the norm.
And, of course, the former president announced that Title IX would be used to fully bar men from participating in women’s athletic competitions.
The left’s war on nature and human biology is a tale as old as time. They hate the natural world, despite their insistence on “trusting the science,” and want to see all-natural beauty that they cannot directly control snuffed out.
It will take comprehensive policies that mobilize the entirety of the U.S. government, at all levels, over long periods of time to restore a semblance of normalcy — but if it doesn’t start soon, it will be too late.
