Judge blocks Biden admin directives on transgender athletes, bathrooms

Source: Reuters

A federal judge in Tennessee has temporarily blocked Biden administration directives allowing transgender workers and students to use bathrooms and locker rooms and join sports teams that correspond with their gender identity.

Judge Charles Atchley Jr. of the Eastern District of Tennessee ruled on Friday that the administration's directives would make it impossible for some states to enforce their own laws on transgender athletes' participation in girls' sports and access to bathrooms.

A coalition of 20 Republican attorneys general brought a lawsuit last year against the federal government, noting that they stood to lose significant federal funding as the Biden directives were in conflict with their own state laws.

Atchley agreed with that, writing in his order that the states "cannot continue regulating pursuant to their state laws while simultaneously complying with Defendants' guidance."

1. Only economic penalties would work to defeat those 20 R A.G.'s! Hit them where the money is or....

....they will continue their reign of terror.

"A coalition of 20 Republican attorneys general brought a lawsuit last year against the federal government, noting that they stood to lose significant federal funding as the Biden directives were in conflict with their own state laws."

Love the idea that they will lose significant $. That's where we Dems need to hit them nationally, on a wide range of laws, to not just get their attention but to defeat their nefarious agendas!

3. Hate groups don't want human rights

in their states and want to push their agenda onto the rest of us.
Some states are going to have second and third class citizens.

6. The GOP is about choosing who is human and who is not so you can hate who you want to.

If you say "those" are not Human then you are free to deny them human rights.

7. The GOP is in the process of criminalizing everyone who is not male, white, and hetero.

and they are succeeding at every turn,

and it is a complete mystery to me why people are
so tolerant of all this.

10. Because they feel a bit like they belong to God's party that they may condemn anyone they dislike.

The street level GOP members that is. Everyone else I know of around here is complaining quite loudly, although you'd not think so to hear the MSM or the local news hair-do's.

IMO after the GOP eliminates those it is removing from elections and then from American life only white theocratic hetero males age 18-55 will be allowed to vote...And then only if they have had the full party indoctrination and passed the orals.

5. And stupid people will act like the problem is something other than

voting/non voting. In this case for state elections such as Attorney General's.

13. Appointed by Donald Trump

Picked by TFG after people had already started voting in late Sept. 2020 and installed
after TFG had lost the election.

Christo Fascists who let the minority control the majority. The GOP has deiced that
gays and trans people will be their lightening rod wedge issue in 2022.

He received his judicial commission on December 22, 2020.

14. Stay in your lane, Republican scum!

The words "Live and Let Live" seem to be something the party of "It has to be my way with no choices for anyone!" is not clear on the concept of.

We have to get them out of office.

15. Remember the reich whining about "Dems wanting to appoint activist judges..."?

 

Good times. Typical fucking QOP projection too.

That's right, though. It seems like anytime we try to get a judge appointed, we have to hear the Nazis whining about how we want to appoint "activist judges that will legislate from the bench." All the while... We're having this country torn apart and rights burnt to ashes by reich-wing activist judges legislating from the bench.

If it's not the Fascist Five unraveling gun control and Roe, it's thugs like this redneck judge Atchley basically blocking President Biden's executive orders. Executive orders meant to protect vulnerable people who have faced nonstop hatred and discrimination here in 2022.

This fascist wants to talk about harm? You wouldn't know the first thing about harm, Itchley. There has been real fucking harm done to LGBTQ's here in 2022 in those so-called "plaintiff states" who want their "state rights" (more like state rights to tear apart lives and harm innocent people.)

How dare this southern-fried crooked judge speak about "harm". The only ones that have been harmed in 2022 have been us. And I'm also going to guess he did not speak to one LGBTQ before issuing this horrible, hateful ruling.

I'm beyond sick of this shit. We're just trying to live our lives in peace while one so-called "party" of goons are trying to tear our rights apart. All along the way, they can count on "help" from scum like this judge. Another goddamned Drumpf-appointed judge whose only purpose is to burn the Constitution and tear the country apart.

This is absurd. Each and every day, the mask comes off and this country is revealed to be a nation of hate, bigotry, cruelty and abuse. Sure, the blue states are still fine. But the red states are becoming Jesusland, a fascist, Drumpf-humping nation of bigotry, hate, corruption and fascism.

Hopefully this can be fought back against. Because as usual, Joe Biden was trying to do truly great things with these executive orders... only to have the American Nazis derail it all yet again.

Fuck Drumpf. Fuck these Christofascists.
