Fascism: A Bipartisan Affliction

Obama Is a Republican

He’s the heir to Richard Nixon, not Saul Alinsky.

Back in 2008, Boston University professor Andrew Bacevich wrote an article for this magazine making a conservative case for Barack Obama. While much of it was based on disgust with the warmongering and budgetary profligacy of the Republican Party under George W. Bush, which he expected to continue under 2008 Republican nominee Sen. John McCain, Bacevich thought Obama at least represented hope for ending the Iraq War and shrinking the national-security state.

I wrote a piece for the New Republic soon afterward about the Obamacon phenomenon—prominent conservatives and Republicans who were openly supporting Obama. Many saw in him a classic conservative temperament: someone who avoided lofty rhetoric, an ambitious agenda, and a Utopian vision that would conflict with human nature, real-world barriers to radical reform, and the American system of government.

Among the Obamacons were Ken Duberstein, Ronald Reagan’s chief of staff; Charles Fried, Reagan’s solicitor general; Ken Adelman, director of the Arms Control and Disarmament Agency for Reagan; Jeffrey Hart, longtime senior editor of National ReviewColin Powell, Reagan’s national security adviser and secretary of state for George W. Bush; and Scott McClellan, Bush’s press secretary. There were many others as well.

According to exit polls in 2008, Obama ended up with 20 percent of the conservative vote. Even in 2012, after four years of relentless conservative attacks, he still got 17 percent of the conservative vote, with 11 percent of Tea Party supporters saying they cast their ballots for Obama.

They were not wrong. In my opinion, Obama has governed as a moderate conservative—essentially as what used to be called a liberal Republican before all such people disappeared from the GOP. He has been conservative to exactly the same degree that Richard Nixon basically governed as a moderate liberal, something no conservative would deny today. (Ultra-leftist Noam Chomsky recently called Nixon “the last liberal president.”)

Here’s the proof:

Transgender ideology is a form of child abuse, warns American College of Pediatricians

Well, this warning certainly isn’t very politically correct and it will likely be viewed as downright mean and bigoted by many, but that doesn’t make it any less true: The transgender activism and ideology is actually harmful to children because it goes against the very nature of their being, according to the American College of Pediatricians.

In a recent policy paper , the organization noted that “facts – not ideology – determine” reality, and that “educators and legislators” ought to “reject all policies that condition children to accept as normal a life of chemical and surgical impersonation of the opposite sex.”

The paper, by Michelle A. Cretella, M.D., president of the American College of Pediatricians; Quentin Van Meter, M.D., vice president of the American College of Pediatricians and a Pediatric Endocrinologist; and Paul McHugh, M.D., University Distinguished Service Professor of Psychiatry at Johns Hopkins Medical School and the former psychiatrist in chief at Johns Hopkins Hospital, lists eight reasons why gender impersonation is harmful to a child’s psyche and emotional well-being:

  1. Human sexuality is an objective biological binary trait : “’XY’ and ‘XX’ are genetic markers of health – not genetic markers of a disorder. The norm for human design is to be conceived either male or female. Human sexuality is binary by design with the obvious purpose being the reproduction and flourishing of our species. This principle is self-evident.”
  1. No one is born with a gender. Everyone is born with a biological sex . “Gender (an awareness and sense of oneself as male or female) is a sociological and psychological concept; not an objective biological one. No one is born with an awareness of themselves as male or female; this awareness develops over time and, like all developmental processes, may be derailed by a child’s subjective perceptions, relationships, and adverse experiences from infancy forward.” The pediatricians further note that there is no “third sex,” just the two we know of – males and females.
