Trump Ends U.S. Military’s Transgender Social Experiment

In a series of tweets, President Trump has announced the reversal of the Obama administration’s policy of allowing transgender people to serve openly in the United States military.

Many conservatives have praised the move noting the military is an inapprorpriate institution for “social experimentation”:

It is worth noting that the military’s prohibition on transgender in the armed forces existed for 7 of 8 years of the Obama presidency. On June 30, 2016, then-Defense Secretary Ash Carter announced the policy change and confirmed the military would “cover the medical costs of those in uniform who wished to undergo gender transition.” Under that policy, service members would also undergo a mandated “training program” on transgender issues.

Despite Trump’s desire to end social experimentation by the military, the LGBT left, and several activist CEOs, have launched a misinformation campaign against the common-sense decision.

What do Apple, Google, and Facebook have in common? All three have histories of pushing the radical, liberal agenda, especially on LGBT issues. Apple and Google are also corporate supporters of the liberal Human Rights Campaign (HRC), which responded to Trump’s decision using false statistics regarding the number of transgender people in the military.

transgender - military - donald trumpHRC’s Twitter feed claims over 15,000 transgender individuals actively serve in the U.S. Military. However, a study by the RAND Corporation estimates the real number is 2,450 active personnel.

Keep in mind, HRC is the powerful LGBT organization that led the legal assault on laws protecting traditional marriage in recent years and has been involved in instigating controversies over so-called “bathroom bills” in states like North Carolina.

Any company associated with HRC plays a direct role in advancing the liberal LGBT agenda and that is why we have developed a quick reference guide to show which corporations are behind HRC’s misinformation campaign.
