In his 2016 Mother’s Day proclamation, President Obama included a new class of mothers in his announcement: transgenders.
“On Mother’s Day, we celebrate those who are first to welcome us into the world,” Obama began. “Performing the most important work there is, mothers – biological, foster, or adoptive – are our first role models and earliest motivators. They balance enormous responsibilities and shape who we become as adults, their lessons guiding us through life.”
The president continued, “Regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, or marital status, mothers have always moved our nation forward and remained steadfast in their pursuit of a better and brighter future for their children.”
The inclusion of “gender identity” in the White House proclamation is a new development this year.
In 2015, Obama didn’t include it but gave a shout-out to mothers who are “married or single, LGBT or straight, biological, adoptive, or foster.”
And in 2014, the Mother’s Day announcement was even more straightforward, with no mention of sexual preference or gender identity at all.
“With Obama, everything is political – employed to advance his perversely transformative agenda,” said award-winning journalist and WND Managing Editor David Kupelian, author of “The Snapping of the American Mind.” “If a mass murder takes place, before the bodies are removed from the scene Obama is pushing gun control. If there is a major hurricane, Obama uses it to promote global-warming regulations. But Mother’s Day? How do you politicize that? It’s easy if you’re Barack Obama.”
