During the second day of CPAC events, Michael J. Knowles, a political commentator and Daily Wire host, made a series of pointed comments towards the trans community that many are viewing as genocidal.
Ramping up to his speech on Saturday, Knowles called for the banning of transgenderism entirely in a recent episode of “The Michael Knowles Show,” adding that it wouldn’t be genocide to do so as “It’s not a legitimate category of being.” Behind the podium on Saturday, he leveled up those initial remarks.
“There can be no middle way in dealing with transgenderism,” Knowles said in his CPAC speech. “It is all or nothing. If transgenderism is true, If men really can become women, then it’s true for everybody of all ages. If transgenderism is false — as it is — if men really can’t become women — as they cannot — then it’s false for everybody too. And if it’s false, then we should not indulge it.”
Continuing his Socratic rant, Knowles drove his point further saying, “For the good of society, transgenderism must be eradicated from public life entirely,” gaining a wash of applause from those in attendance.
So “transgenderism” must be eradicated, and but transgender people don’t exist in the first place. Hmm… anyone seen Schrödinger’s cat recently?
What is clear is that there is an obsession among certain conservative mindsets about other people and their private lives, and going to the default position that it must involve sex, and not in a good way. Anyone who doesn’t present themselves as what they consider to be normal and straight must be banned or wiped off the face of the earth. I’m no psychiatrist, but it doesn’t take an advanced degree to figure out that they are the ones with the disturbed sense of reality about the basic human programming of who we are and how we relate to our own sense of being.
I don’t know who this Michael Knowles character is, nor do I care to learn, but this kind of casual advocacy for violence against a whole segment of humanity is what should be eradicated.
Obsessing over someone else’s sexuality and/or gender is a sure sign that you’re insecure in your own sexuality or gender.
