Clemson Prof: Trump Military Trans Ban is Like the Nazis or Something

“Nazi eugenic propaganda”

This type of rhetoric was already tired months ago but the left keeps rolling it out.

Prof: Trump’s transgender ban echoes ‘Nazi eugenic propaganda’

A Clemson University professor is comparing President Trump’s ban on transgender soldiers to “Nazi eugenic propaganda,” calling it “ableism deployed to incarcerate or kill disabled people.”

“As a friend pointed out, the notion that trans people are ‘too expensive’ echoes the ideologies of ableism deployed to incarcerate or kill disabled people, and Nazi eugenic propaganda against disabled people,” Clemson University English professor Jonathan B. Field wrote in a Facebook post one day after Trump announced the decision in a tweet.

In three separate tweets, Trump stated that “After consultation with my Generals and military experts, please be advised that the United States Government will not accept or allow Transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. Military.”

Trump then elaborated that “Our military must be focused on decisive and overwhelming victory and cannot be burdened with the tremendous medical costs and disruption that transgender in the military would entail.”

Field also pondered “how much of the transphobic insistence that all bodies be cis bodies also comes from an ideology of ableism, as a version of a demand that all bodies be perfect, symmetrical, and legible,” subsequently elaborating in the comments section that “the demand that the bodies of strangers be legible in terms of gender seems like it might have some corollaries in similar demands that strangers be racially legible.”

Recruiting and paying for the operations and hormones of “transgenders” takes both money and time. If “transgenders” hava a “right” to serve in the armed forces, why don’t those with poor vision, the elderly, asthmatics, and the lame also have that same “right”?

A Clemson University professor is comparing President Trump’s ban on transgender soldiers to “Nazi eugenic propaganda,” calling it “ableism deployed to incarcerate or kill disabled people.”

Is he saying that transgenders are disabled? Sure sounds like it, to me.

That won’t read well in the LGBTIDK universe.

… echoes the ideologies of ableism deployed to incarcerate or kill disabled people …

Sorry, no, that doesn’t sound remotely like anything Trump’s proposed.

And it’s not all that radical for the military to be interested in “abelism”. Having “flat feet” is the classic; the military isn’t interested, and never has been. And I know someone rejected from military service for being “pigeon-toed”. He didn’t make a subsequent career of complaining about it, though.

I don’t think I’ve ever encountered any bodies which were “symmetrical and legible” … not even among the trans population. (Yes, I know, I really should get out more …)

I’ve got news for this idiot: Every single person who was eligible for Hitler’s murder-the-feeble program is currently ineligible for service in the US military, and in almost every military force in the world, and has been so for pretty much all of history. Does he propose changing that?

(The IDF has been known to “sign up” people with Downs Syndrome, as a kindness to them, give them a uniform, and find them something useful to do, or at least something to do that will make them feel useful; but everyone understands that this is social welfare, and doesn’t confuse it with the real military.)

Another leftist professor who obviously has never served except at a Starbuck’s where he reached his max potential.
