Ileana Ros-Lehtinen

American Family Association is a hate group. Representative Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (my Congress critter in Miami Beach) knows that AFA is a hate group. Ileana is a GOPer but she has a transgender son, Rodrigo.

Today’s missive from hate group leader Tim Wildmon is titled: “Representative Ileana Ros-Lehtinen voted for sex changes in military.” That is not entirely accurate. She voted against an amendment to the Defense Authorization that would ban all treatment for gender dysphoria except for mental health care. That includes the service member’s children.

Last week Representative Ileana Ros-Lehtinen voted against an amendment to stop your tax dollars from paying for transgender military personnel to have:

  • sex change operations,
  • drugs to make men grow breasts, and
  • drugs for women to grow facial hair.

This is no joke. The Obama Administration mandated a military social experiment to:

  • recruit people into the military who identify as transgender,
  • provide taxpayer dollars to pay for sex changes and hormone therapy, and
  • deny conscience protections for members of military who oppose transgender transition efforts.

They had to get those “conscience protections” in there. After all, every Christian requires the right to be a bigot — at least according to AFA. It is called Christian privilege which is based on a belief in Christian Supremacy.

There is the inevitable petition. I left the link intact so that you can read the reflections of someone with a severe personality disorder:

Tell Representative Ileana Ros-Lehtinen that you will be looking for a conservative Republican to run against them next election.

Ileana has pretty much a lock on her seat. She is from the right demographic and Cuban Americans, on the whole, are socially liberal. So good luck with that AFA. I hope that they waste lots of time on this.
