Earlier this week ThinkProgress gleefully announced some really great news as they reported on yet another usurpation of the Constitution by the Obama administration. This time it’s Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD – which constitutionally shouldn’t exist) turn to impose illegal regulations.
Their target is homeless shelters. Yes – homeless shelters – many of which are not even run by state or local governments, but by religious charities.
It seems homeless shelters all across these United States are discriminating against a certain group of people. I wonder if you can guess which group? I’ll give you a hint – even two.
Hints: It’s all the rage today and Bruce Jenner. You are correct. ThinkProgress is reporting that our federal government wants to protect “transgender individuals from discrimination by homeless shelters. The thought of ensuring that transgender people can find shelter if they need it has enraged many conservatives.”
