BREAKING: Biden Seeks a Federal Takeover for Pride Month
New executive order seeks to force LGBT ideology on a nation that doesn’t want it
Statement from Craig DeRoche, CEO and President of Family Policy Alliance:
“Today, President Biden has identified himself as an actual threat to democracy and to families, by showing his willingness to issue a federal takeover of decisions that belong to parents, schools, and health care professionals – all in a single executive order.
“President Biden promised to enact the sweeping Equality Act, which seeks to redefine sex across federal law. That bill has failed multiple times in Congress. Not only that, but Americans across the nation are moving in the opposite direction.
“That reality is the clear impetus for today’s executive order. The President is going after the states and the American people who are pushing back against his woke agenda. The accompanying fact sheet for the order alluded to Florida’s Parental Rights in Education bill, Help Not Harm laws that protect minors from transgender interventions, and the Save Girls’ Sports laws that now protect female athletes in eighteen states.
“As for the people leading those policies? We’re not intimidated. We know that the alliance of state family policy councils behind many of these policies is standing strong, and that the movement’s momentum is greater than ever. Look no further than the sweeping effort to Save Girls’ Sports. In 2020, one state had such a law. Last year, 9 states had Save Girls’ Sports laws. This year, that number has doubled to eighteen.
“Today, the President alienated himself from his fellow Americans and called them ‘bullies’ to underscore the point. He’s drawn clear battle lines, and we proudly stand on the side of the states leading the movement to protect women and children, save girls sports, and ensure parents know what’s happening in their child’s kindergarten classroom.
“Today, Biden has accomplished little more than show how out of touch he is with millions of Americans and add fuel to the fire to ensure that kids and their families are protected across the country.”
Family Policy Alliance also released a joint statement with Women’s Liberation Front (WoLF), available here. WoLF is the nation’s largest radical feminist, non-partisan, non-profit agency fighting against gender ideology.
