Trump administration considers rollback of anti-discrimination rules

Filed under: Bigotry, Criminal, Economics, Fascism, Harm, History, News, Political, Questions, Race — Scottie @ 11:33

No body ever try to tell me again that Republicans are not racist or what supremacists.  Yes this has been a goal of the leaders, but if you still support this party, this president, their goals, you honestly are a racist white supremacist.  Own it.   People wake up.  This is so like Germany in the 1930’s.   They did not start out with ovens.  It started with demonizing a segment of the population.   Making laws to favor a majority white national class.  Remember women were regulated to basically breeding stock for Aryan males.  They were basically forced to have babies from different men.   They had no control over their bodies or sexual organs.  We are dangerously close to that time in this country.   One party in Germany got into power and change the rules to gain and keep power regardless of what the majority of the population wanted.   Sound like any party in our country today.   Wake up, get angry, fight back now before it is too late to fight at all.   Hugs

The Trump administration is considering a far-reaching rollback of civil rights law that would dilute federal rules against discrimination in education, housing and other aspects of American life, people familiar with the discussions said.

A recent internal Justice Department memo directed senior civil rights officials to examine how decades-old “disparate impact” regulations might be changed or removed in their areas of expertise, and what the impact might be, according to people familiar with the matter. Similar action is being considered at the Education Department and is underway at the Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Under the concept of disparate impact, actions can amount to discrimination if they have an uneven effect even if that was not the intent, and rolling back this approach has been a longtime goal of conservative legal thinkers. Past Republican administrations have done little to erode the concept’s application, partly out of concerns that the Supreme Court might disagree, or that such changes would be unpopular and viewed as racist.

The Trump administration signaled its hostility to this approach in a report issued last week by the Federal Commission on School Safety, which recommended rescinding the school discipline guidance. In a sharply worded and controversial chapter, the report said the validity of disparate impact analysis “cannot be squared with the Supreme Court’s holdings.” The administration revoked the guidance a few days later.

People who compare Trump to Hitler correctly see history repeating itself in the way Hitler rose to power and the tactics he used, and Trump’s despicable assault on all our own democratic institutions, his demonization of immigrants and the inhuman caging of thousands of kids and cruel separation from their parents.

SOUTH CAROLINA IS LOBBYING TO ALLOW DISCRIMINATION AGAINST JEWISH PARENTS

Filed under: Bigotry, Children, Fascism, Harm, History, News, Political, Questions, Race, Religion — Scottie @ 11:33

I have been saying it was only a matter of time before the christian bigots went after other groups they don’t like, and especially single women.   They are determined to make this country a christian theocracy where Christian rule and other must live as the Christians dictate.  Your freedoms don’t matter, all that matters is their religious doctrines get the force of law.   Hugs

https://theintercept.com/2018/10/19/south-carolina-foster-parent-discrimination-miracle-hill-ministries/

THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION is considering whether to grant a South Carolina request that would effectively allow faith-based foster care agencies in the state the ability to deny Jewish parents from fostering children in its network. The argument, from the state and from the agency, is that the federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act should not force a Protestant group to work with Jewish people if it violates a tenet of their faith.

The case being made by South Carolina is an extension of the debate around RFRA, which is more commonly associated with discrimination against LGBTQ people, but by no means applies exclusively to that group.

If granted, the exemption would allow Miracle Hill Ministries, a Protestant social service agency working in the state’s northwest region, to continue receiving federal dollars while “recruiting Christian foster families,” which it has been doing since 1988, according to its website. That discrimination would apply not just to Jewish parents, but also to parents who are Muslim, Catholic, Unitarian, atheist, agnostic or other some other non-Protestant Christian denomination.

Project Blitz, the Christian Right’s Legislative Playbook, Is Expanding in 2019

A very important read about the plan to Christize America and make it a Christian nation for Christians only.   Hugs

https://friendlyatheist.patheos.com/2018/12/20/project-blitz-the-christian-rights-legislative-playbook-is-expanding-in-2019/

Back in May, we learned about “Project Blitz,” the Christian Right’s three-pronged strategy to push their faith through the government. The name referred to the idea that if Christian politicians jammed legislatures with a variety of bills, some of them would eventually pass.

There were three categories of bills they hoped to pass: Symbolic ones (like putting “In God We Trust” everywhere), pro-Christian ones (like passing “Christian Heritage Week” resolutions), and anti-everybody-else ones (like bills that allow Christian business owners to discriminate against gay customers).

First, there are three specific goals these Christians hope to accomplish. One of them, a “free speech” policy, is legislation that says public schools can’t get in the way of students who want to pray. (Spoiler: No one was getting in the way of that.) Another makes sure “In God We Trust” license plates are available in every state. The third, which was also a 2018 goal, is much more disturbing. It urges states to pass resolutions “favoring sexual intercourse only between a man and a woman.”

That doesn’t violate the Supreme Court ruling legalizing marriage equality, they say; it just lets states affirm that straight sex is the best sex because — according to their sample legislation — “the health care costs for HIV/AIDS… are highly significant, estimated to be in the billions of dollars annually in our nation.”

See? It’s not anti-gay! It’s about public health! (Brought to you by the same people who opposed the Affordable Care Act.)

Clarkson notes that this also contributes to the anti-LGBTQ rhetoric of evangelical Christians who oppose gay couples adopting kids or taking in foster children.

MAJORITY OF U.S. MUSLIMS NOW SUPPORT GAY MARRIAGE, WHILE WHITE EVANGELICAL CHRISTIANS REMAIN OPPOSED

including a majority of U.S. Muslims backing same-sex marriage for the first time.

Muslims, by a margin of 51 percent to 34 percent, favor same-sex marriage, compared to just four years ago when a majority, 51 percent, were opposed. There were similar results for black Protestants, with 54 percent opposing gay marriage in PRRI’s 2014 American Values Atlas, compared with 43 percent in the latest findings.

Indeed, opposition to same-sex marriage is now limited almost entirely to white conservative Christians. Fifty-eight percent of white evangelical Christians and 53 percent of Mormons—an overwhelming majority of whom are white—are opposed to allowing gay couples to marry. The group with the most opposition, though, is Jehovah’s Witnesses, a group which is 36 percent white, 32 percent Hispanic and 27 percent black in the U.S. Just 13 percent support the law.

As a whole, 63 percent of Americans now back allowing same-sex couples to marry, up from 52 percent four years ago. All major racial groups now have a majority in favor. Republicans, though, remain opposed, 51 percent to 42 percent.

WV Asst. Principal Accused of Confronting Transgender Student Outside Bathroom

Filed under: Asshole / Jerk, Bigotry, Children, Education, Gender, News, Political, Questions — Scottie @ 07:32

https://friendlyatheist.patheos.com/2018/12/18/wv-asst-principal-accused-of-confronting-transgender-student-outside-bathroom/

A transgender student at Liberty High School in West Virginia says he was “cornered, harassed and intimidated” in a bathroom by Assistant Principal Lee Livengood. As the story goes, the sophomore went to use the boys’ restroom before a band trip. When he walked out, Livengood was standing there and confronted him about why he was using that particular restroom before challenging him to “use a urinal to prove that he was a boy.”

When a chaperone for the trip arrived on the scene, Livengood allegedly told the student, “I’m not going to lie, you kind of freak me out.”
