On Tuesday, Dec. 13, Biden signed the Respect for Marriage Act, a law that provides federal protections for married same-sex and interracial couples. In a speech before signing the bill, he called for an end to the "hate and violence" against trans-identifying children and the healthcare professionals that provide them with hormone therapy and surgical operations.
Biden even claimed that "transphobia" is connected to other forms of bigotry, and that this is what caused the recent Colorado Springs nightclub shooting that killed five people. (Related: Colorado gay club shooting suspect self-identifies as "non-binary," attorneys say.)
"When hospitals, libraries and community centers are threatened and intimidated … because they support LGBTQ children and families, we have to speak out," he said. "We must stop the hate and violence like we just saw in Colorado Springs, where a place of acceptance and celebration was targeted for violence and terror."
He then went on to challenge the hundreds of supposedly "callous and cynical" bills and laws that have been introduced and signed in state legislatures that specifically provide protections for children and their families against doctors who would give them hormone therapy and permanent surgical procedures. He claimed that this needlessly terrifies families and turns doctors into criminals for "giving children the care they need."
"Racism, antisemitism, homophobia, transphobia – they're all connected. But the antidote to hate is love. This law, and the love it defends, strike a blow against hate in all its forms," said Biden.
"So, he wants to show that we love these children and we must protect these children," said Beck, who noted that his prediction that the world would be turned upside down has finally come true.
"When the president can say this is for the 'love and protection' of our children, so doctors can go in and mutilate our children, it is officially upside down."
Beck is not the only one to strongly criticize Biden's statement. Notable political commentators, both conservative and liberal alike, have pointed out how dangerous it is for Biden to rush to the aid of healthcare workers who provide healthcare to trans-identifying children.
"This rhetoric is so spectacularly dangerous," said Ian Haworth, a conservative writer and political activist. "By rolling all bigotry – real and imaginary – into one political hammer to swing at anyone and everyone, it makes it so much easier for the real bigots to hide in plain sight. By doing this, Biden is opening the door to [more] hate."
Off The Press Deputy Editor Rob Smith wrote: "Democrats found that if you pander enough to the 'Alphabet People,' you can get them to do anything, including pushing what I believe will one day become one of the biggest medical scandals in American history – the 'transitioning' of children."
"Once you see through what pandering blowhards Democrats are, you can never unsee it," said Dave Rubin, a liberal political commentator who is himself a gay man. "Please explain to me how chopping kids' genitals off is connected to racism."
