Two middle-aged female attorneys were discussing what it was like when one of them was married to a Muslim from the Middle East. The woman only had positive things to say about her ex-husband and his parents. A middle-aged male attorney walked over and listened for a minute. As he was turning to walk away he said: “As a white man I am not allowed to comment.”
Scared of joining a discussion about a Muslim family? What, oh what, has happened to us? Bred on the Bill of Rights, why would ANY middle-aged or older America fear listening to and/or commenting on the “wrong” discussion? After all, those Americans roughly older than 45 went through school BEFORE our education system was turned into Liberal Indoctrination.
The Liberal bullies who took over the Oregon State Bar (AKA: the Bar) 25 years ago have turned too many educated professionals into scared rabbits, fearing for their law licenses and their livelihoods. Of course, the bullies on TV, the bullies in DC, the bullies in every Liberal community (this discussion took place in the Portland Metro Area, where Liberal oppression reigns supreme) have beaten many Normal Americans into submission, as well.
“YOU CAN’T SAY THAT ! ! !” “DON’T TALK ABOUT THAT, YOU WILL BE IN TROUBLE WITH THE BAR!”
Attorneys hanging out in the courthouse hallway or during a break at a legal seminar or at re-education camp, look around to see who is listening before making remarks. The most innocent remark in everyday conversations can put one’s license to practice law in Oregon at risk.
Since the sands of Liberalism are constantly shifting one doesn’t know from day to day, which words are allowed and which are not. Even Liberal attorneys worry about getting on the wrong side of the loonies who own the Bar.
A recent “social justice” class that all Oregon attorneys are mandated to attend had nothing to do with the law. It was held to force attorneys to fall in line with the Bar’s current fantasy: Transgenderism.
TRANS 101: WORD & THOUGHT CONTROL
The Bar jumped on this latest scheme to destroy the next generation the minute President Obama mandated that gender is “fluid.” All public schools MUST allow boys & men into restrooms reserved for real girls & women.
At the Transgender seminar, three attorneys who claimed to be transgenders, told a small room of attorneys what they were & were not allowed to do & say when encountering a transperson.
RE-EDUCATION CAMP FOR ATTORNEYS ESTABLISHED IN 2001
Almost two decades ago The Loony Left, who had stealthily and successfully taken control of the Bar in the 1990s, turned the Continuing Legal Education program into a Liberalism Re-Education Camp for Oregon’s attorneys. The mandated program to keep attorneys abreast of changes in the law, was transformed into periodic social & political indoctrination for Oregon’s 15,000+ attorneys. To keep one’s license to practice law, every attorney MUST submit.
Oregon attorneys were taught all manner of Liberal Indoctrination: From how to treat anyone The Left labels a “victim,” to the superiority of “brown” skin. From “white privilege,” to Islam is getting a bad rap. From all white men are rapists, to the Bill of Rights is racist. Christians don’t deserve First Amendment Rights but Muslims do. The asinine social justice dog piles were often so insane that some holier-than-thou pontificators couldn’t even articulate them.
In the early years of this mind-numbing poppycock most attorneys left these classes not bothering to hide their disgust. This writer was molly whopped when I attended the very first such indoctrination put on by the Bar. A gay architect, yes I said ARCHITECT, not attorney, told a packed room how we should treat our employees. This was well attended because we were all curious. But about 1/3 of the audience walked out in the middle of the presentation, having taken all the insults they could.
As time went on, attorneys learned to pretend the BS being spewed at them made sense. To let on that they didn’t buy into these Liberal delusions meant risking their license to practice law.
TRANS 101: FANTASYLAND BRINGS UP MANY QUESTIONS WHICH NON-TRANS ARE NOT ALLOWED TO ASK
Of the three transgendered speakers at this April event, there appeared to be one woman pretending to be a man, and two men pretending to be females. One speaker could fool a bystander into believing he was a REAL woman.
After the speakers finished, they opened it up for questions. Crickets! Although the audience was made up mostly of attorneys who lean left, they were afraid to ask questions. They feared being labeled “transphobic” if they asked an innocent question about this extremely confusing topic. More importantly, they were afraid someone in the audience, or the speakers, would report them to the Bar.
TRANS 101: WHAT WERE THE HAPLESS ATTORNEYS IN THE AUDIENCE TOLD?
Calling this seminar Trans 101, the audience was told: When you see a transperson, call he/she “they.” Say what? What if “they’s” appearance is such that a casual observer can’t tell the difference? After all, isn’t the object of transgendering yourself to project the illusion that you are the opposite gender? Perhaps it isn’t.
That begs the question: What verb must be used? “They is?” “They are?” Or should we invent a new verb to keep loony Liberals, who happen to be transpeople, happy? The narcissists who gave this amusing presentation assumed that ALL transpeople agree with bastardizing the English language. NOT! Transpeople are just as individualistic and multi-faceted as anyone else. Some of them are Conservatives who are not interested in bullying their fellow Americans.
What if a Normal American is confused or completely unaware of this relatively new Liberal fantasy? What if he or she uses the “wrong” pronoun? Will he or she be disbarred? Hey, when will “using the wrong pronoun” be a criminal act in Oregon like it is in Canada?
The audience was taught that a boy is NOT born a boy. Nooooooooooooooo, the doctor or parents ASSIGNED “boy” as his gender. The same with girls. The speakers insisted that “gender” is “fluid” and one needs to ask co-workers each morning whether he/she wants to be called “he” “she” or “they” that day. Whoa to the person who thinks “Jim” is the same man he was yesterday. THAT is called sexual harassment, bullying or worse.
TRANS 101: REALITY NO LONGER EXISTS
These transgendered speakers claimed that a transman is a REAL man. Of course, reality tells us she was born a girl but so hated her body that she intentionally mutilated it. Do whatever you want with your own body. Live and let live. But don’t expect your countrymen/women to pretend reality doesn’t exist.
A transwoman is a REAL woman, according to these speakers. Reality hits you right in the face, doesn’t it? This man is living under the delusion that his appearance makes him a woman. Unfortunately, he is still a man, even though he may, or may not, be missing some of his body parts.
No wonder several attorneys are suing the Bar for violation of their civil rights. The Bar has been abusing attorneys’ Bill of Rights for well over 25 years. Diversity of thought is NOT allowed among Oregon attorneys.
