Oklahoma Republicans Fight Back Against Bathroom Directive – Call for Obama’s Impeachment

Another showdown in the battle of the bathrooms is taking place in Oklahoma. Since the Obama Administration issued a “guidance” (that’s what it is being called) that schools allow students who identify themselves as transgender to use the restroom of their choosing, students, schools, and teachers alike have been pushing back against it. But, Republican Lawmakers in the Oklahoma State Senate have gone as far as to call for President Obama’s impeachment over the matter.

 

Now, it should be noted that this new directive is a ‘recommendation’ and not a new law. Therefore, it does not have the force of law behind it. As Reuters reported:

“The recommendation upset Republicans and raised the likelihood of fights over federal funding and legal authority. The Oklahoma resolution, introduced Thursday night, calls on the state’s members of U.S. House of Representatives to file articles of impeachment against Obama, the U.S. Attorney General, the U.S. Secretary of Education and others over the policy. A vote has not yet been scheduled on the resolution. Legal experts told local media the impeachment call is on shaky ground since the recommendation offered non-binding guidance and did not have the force of law.”

More Threats from the Rogue Administration

However, that has not stopped the administration from utilizing extortion-tactics to coerce schools to comply with the guidance by threatening to cut off their federal funding. Although the administration denied it would take such measures, the ultimatum was apparent even to a left-leaning report on CNN, which read in part:

“This latest guidance for schools goes beyond the bathroom issue, touching upon privacy rights, educational records and sex-segregated athletics, all but guaranteeing transgender students the right to identify in school as they choose. It echoes what members of the administration have previously said on the topic.

‘There is no room in our schools for discrimination of any kind, including discrimination against transgender students on the basis of their sex., Attorney General Loretta Lynch said. ‘This guidance gives administrators, teachers and parents the tools they need to protect transgender from peer harassment and to identify and address unjust school policies.’ The letter does not carry the force of law but the message was clear: Fall in line or face loss of federal funding.”

Not all of the Republican lawmakers in the Oklahoma Senate were quite so outraged over the directive, however. Some were quoted as saying that it is a waste of time and effort to pursue impeachment over bathrooms while other significant issues are facing the state.

The argument does deserve sympathy and understanding, but we cannot forget that it will most likely be women and young girls who face the negative repercussions of what the administration is calling for. After all, who can forget the shocking editorial in Charlotte Observer saying that girls “must overcome the discomfort of seeing male genitalia” in restrooms and locker rooms?

It looks like they are also going to have to overcome the discomfort in seeing a drastic spike in rape cases nationwide – and living in fear that they could be the next victim.
