Rep. Steve King: ‘Civil Disobedience’ Needed on Transgender Bathroom Rules
By Greg Richter

Iowa Republican Rep. Steve King called for “civil disobedience” on the push for transgender bathrooms during a radio interview on Tuesday, BuzzFeed reports.

“We should call for civil disobedience here,” King said to Simon Conway, an Iowa talk radio host on station WHO.

“There’s no reason for us to follow an unconstitutional edict from the president, who is on his way out the door,” King said, referencing President Barack Obama’s order on Friday for school districts throughout the country to allow students into the locker rooms of the gender with which they identify.

Obama’s order does not have the force of law, but the White House argues that the gender equality called for in Title IX of the Education Act of 1972 includes transgender students.
King said he plans to hold a hearing next Tuesday on the issue at which one of the “two level-headed members” of the Civil Rights Commission will testify.

King said the Civil Rights Commission recently used its funding increase to hire more personnel “to find more things to do and that is the root of this school policy or where Obama got it from.

“I need to be more astute at how movements begin, the genesis of these kinds of policies,” King said. “So that we can go find them before they proliferate and become contagious across the countryside.”

  • It should be obvious that the gender activism we see is a concentrated, heavily-funded push by leftists. My guess is that the reason is in order to break down western society. We saw this with the gay “marriage” push a year ago. How many users on Disqus have we seen and argued with who dropped off the face of the Earth the day after the ruling? http://disqus.com/by/politicsvstruth , for example.

    • Exactly, it is a paid operation to go on social media sites with as many trolls as possible to try and sway public opinion, meanwhile it is only a very tiny percentage that approves of what the immoral left is pushing. Look at how face book has now been exposed as censoring Conservative views.

        Any proof? Nah. Just more talking points from an Internet coward. Back to mommy’s basement

          It is no secret. This is funded by tim gill..arcus..tim sweeney..the haas family…tim cook. .and rin by the human rights campaign. The goal is to destroy religious freedom.
          Now go ask kevin jennings how to respond.

          • NGN

            noper. even more talking points from the little black book, eh?

          • Is that what Kevin Jennings told you to say

          Leftist workshops… the most pervasive… OFA efforts during his(Barack Hussein Obama’s) rise and the money they spent to achieve the teaching tools of the Alinsky-like behaviors we see now and recently transerred to HRC election efforts. ACORN, was in your mommies basement in New Orleans?

        • Look at you and Kyra

      Absolutely. Ever heard of “glenbo”?

      This guy doesn’t have a conversation, rather, he attacks every sentence and tries to get you to waste time by verifying the most basic, pedestrian points. This seems like a disingenuous tactic to divert your energies away from the bigger issues and mire you in details and minutiae. I’ve noticed that tactic before with other leftist posters… it seems to be a tactic that they have learned as a form of disruption, not dialog. It is clearly not a desire to have a logical, factual discussion, but rather an attempt only at distraction.

      Looking that the length and volume of his posts, and the similarities in others doing the same thing, I have to wonder if this is only one person, or multiple persons working under his name…

      • I think you’re right. Alinsky talked about disruption as a primary method to effect change. You see it with leftist posters a lot. They have lost the logical debate, and they know it, so they try to waste your time, so that you can’t do more. Also, it is not a person actually arguing with you – more than likely it’s someone copying and pasting arguments, or using a bot to do so.

        • Richard

          How could a bot do that?

          Another tactic I’ve noticed of the leftists- and I find it very irritating is that they cut and paste many sentences that I write as quotes, and then pick apart every word… do you think that is a bot?

          • That may not be a bot… but if you look at the user @dgcj:disqus or @waykent:disqus , you will see operators who are assisted by bots. With the second one, it is much easier to tell due to its repetitive response pattern.

          • Richard

            Thanks, that’s good to know…

        You are correct, Richard.

        I merely asked you to verify points you made and you
        demonstrated that you are incapable of doing so proving that you, sir, are the
        one who is being disingenuous.

        Anyone who disagrees with this, please look at my questions
        I posed to Mr. Richard regarding his "claims" that I have revealed as
        Unsubstantiatable claims and assertions.

        Why don't you just stand up for yourself and answer those
        questions I asked instead of resorting to character assassination?

        Or have I revealed you as being insincere, disingenuous and
        intellectually bankrupt.

        Sir?

          Hey, you’re right, he is a bot!

            Thank you.
            And thank you for your truthful and carefully researched and verifiable insight.

          I think, you are mistaking colloquy for character assassination. More, it looks like you are committing to political and intellectual Seppuku 'glenbo'.
          That, is my view.

          • glenbo

            >”I think, you are mistaking colloquy for character assassination.”>
            I suggest you revue our conversation history.

            >” More, it looks like you are committing to political and intellectual Seppuku”<
            How so?
            By asking those who make false claims to substantiate them?

          • Status Quo

            I had read many of your open profile comments, but as you suggest… I will examine the comments you seem to have problem within the suggested links. I do note, you are combative and overreacting to commentary. This, normally does not make for good discussion. I’ll revisit this upon your suggestion. Suffice it say, I do not like your responses or the manner of them. All your machinations regarding ‘Richard’s attributes, are combative and visually untrue in my experience reading his comments over time. He has been prolific and friendly wherever he has posted… let’s see what your issue is the suggested links above. You deserve that from me. I understand you do not like my view ‘glenbo’.

          • glenbo

            >”I do note, you are combative and overreacting to commentary.””He has been prolific and friendly wherever he has posted”<

            Correct, until he looked into the mirror that I held up to him and realized who he is Once he realized he was wrong he instantly resorted to personal attacks and insults to avoid cognitive dissonance.

            My post history is wrought with conversations with people just like Richard. He is yet just another with whom I have long ago honed my skills in dealing with. I can spot these anti-LGBT clowns in an instant and I know long before hand they will not and cannot defend their ludicrous claims and assertions against the entire LGBT population.

            The discussions always end in a catastrophic breakdown loaded with rocks thrown at me because nobody likes getting caught in a lie.

            I have offered to personally debate Tony Perkins and Peter Sprigg of the Family Research Council. It will never happen because they are smarter than the rest of those who attempt to defend and justify the un-defendable lies and unfounded fears being hyped against the LGBT population for no rational and logical or moral reason.

            If the points in Richard's essay I questioned were in fact true and/or defensible, you and I would not be having this conversation.

            I am not doing this for sport. I am doing this as research.

          • Status Quo

            I notice your edited addition to your earlier post in the space. I suppose this is some concocted advantage for you, but very evident we will have to meet in-the-middle by stating I have read your two links above and you will not like my responses to you forward as your manner is as combative as I saw in your other comments seen online. In fact, you added this line “By asking those who make false claims to substantiate them?” as an afterthought. That, is more than typo and just pure gamesmanship.
            You began your argumentum in the second link with a rash generalization that ‘Richard” lacks understanding of subjects like gender dysphoria ~ that is intellectual Seppuku in my book as well as your following.
            Your added bottom line… is a conversation killer again… in this case, purely political Seppuku for those of that have proven ourselves to be tolerant of accommodations for deviant lifestyle choices that you seem bent/evident to proliferate and engage in perversion of language. Now, don’t go off half cocked That I am rejecting your views… I just will not respond to your thinking or comments deemed wrong-headed. We can agree to disagree but I have read enough of your views and expect the same.
            What is my last word on this, is that you have illustrated your intolerance in being so combative about your views. Demonstrated, through your view that what are extra-legal accommodations for a sliver of the population, are being argued by ‘you’ as Rights. At this point, I don’t care to exchange any of my views with you ‘glenbo’. Perhaps others are more tolerant.

            I find “tolerance” for bigotry and hate
            repugnant and deplorable

      • Please provide proof. LMAO 😉

    • Religion destroyed the GOP

      Why would “leftists” want to “break down western society”?

      • to make people slaves to the elites

        • Religion destroyed the GOP

          Don’t the leftists (and elites) live in western society?
