White House Plan for ‘Gender Equity’ Includes Elimination of Cash Bail
“We will work to end cash bail and reform our pretrial system, recognizing the harm these processes cause, particularly for Black women and families”
The Biden administration recently announced the creation of a “National Strategy on Gender Equity and Equality.” Most Americans would probably prefer that they try to tackle problems like the border crisis or the supply chain crisis, but they have their own priorities.
For some reason, this new strategy also includes the elimination of cash bail.
Joseph Simonson reports at the Washington Free Beacon:
White House ‘Gender Equity’ Plan Calls for Elimination of Cash Bail
As the country faces an unprecedented murder spike, President Joe Biden is claiming that eliminating cash bail for violent criminals is critical to promoting “gender equity and equality.”
A 42-page report from the White House Gender Policy Council entitled the “National Strategy on Gender Equity and Equality” outlines a “whole of government” approach to ending so-called inequality between men, women, and transgender people. Among the critical steps necessary to remedy disparities between these groups, the White House alleges, is working to overturn cash bail, a legal mechanism that proponents say helps keep violent criminals off the street.
“We will work to end cash bail and reform our pretrial system, recognizing the harm these processes cause, particularly for Black women and families,” the report says.
The Biden administration’s decision to push for a radical criminal justice reform measure—even as broad swaths of the public say they are concerned about rising violence—reflects the political tensions of an increasingly unpopular president who feels compelled to placate his party’s radical base.
The description of the plan at the White House website reads like it was written by a UC-Berkeley undergrad:
The strategy identifies ten interconnected priorities: 1) economic security; 2) gender-based violence; 3) health; 4) education; 5) justice and immigration; 6) human rights and equality under the law; 7) security and humanitarian relief; 8) climate change; 9) science and technology; and 10) democracy, participation, and leadership. These priorities are inherently linked and must be tackled in concert.
The strategy also adopts an intersectional approach that considers the barriers and challenges faced by those who experience intersecting and compounding forms of discrimination and bias related to gender, race, and other factors, including sexual orientation, ethnicity, religion, disability, age, and socioeconomic status.
Conn Carroll writes at the Washington Examiner:
Biden released a ‘National Gender Strategy,’ and it is every bit as ridiculous as it sounds
If the Babylon Bee had been asked to write a “National Gender Strategy” to be posted on the White House’s website, it wouldn’t look any different than the document the Biden administration actually released last Friday.
The “fact sheet” contains every buzzword and policy that you would expect to hear from a progressive activist with a degree in gender studies.
The four-page document begins by identifying “gender equity” as a “moral and strategic imperative.” Thanks to COVID-19, “we are at an inflection point,” the statement reads, as the pandemic has “magnified the challenges” that women and girls face — “especially women and girls of color.”
The Biden administration is in over its head. The country is now facing serious problems at home and abroad. With the announcement of this new strategy, it looks like they are just trying to give the liberal media something else to talk about.
Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.
Does this brilliant strategy contain any mention of the new victims it will create?
We need to amend the Constitution to hold all government officials liable for the consequences of their actions.
Do not hold criminals in jail – what could possibly go wrong?
Look at New York.
There was a time when big cities were worth going to for museums, zoos, architecture, but today those things cannot compensate for a high concentration of degenerates.. Cities have outlived their usefulness.
Don’t panic. Alec Baldwin will be available to provide armed security.
As long as they are put in front of a firing squad. nothing would go wrong.
Yet another set aside for the exalted minority.
Just let them post lottery tickets.
Or, pawn tickets.
Getting To The Loot Of The Problem
When was the last time we saw a civil disturbance that was not about loot?
There must be a super secret prize of immense value for whoever can dream up the dumbest idea possible. These lefty morons certainly wouldn’t be doing all this dreaming for free.
The report PDF page 25, first paragraph gives the impression that bidon wants to force these rules on the States:
We are also committed to increasing federal oversight and accountability for police departments and prosecutors’ offices to address systemic misconduct, including gender bias and sexual misconduct. And we will work to end cash bail and reform our pretrial system, recognizing the harm these processes cause, particularly for Black women and families.
Another one of those unfunny jokes that nobody laughs at.
WHO CONTROLS AMERICA ?
George Soros, Bernie Sanders, BLM and HRC (Human Rights Campaign – gender activists)
1. Soros “Open Society” Project – pushes for OPEN BORDERS and DEFUND POLICE
2. Bernie Sanders – pushes for SOCIALISM (EQUITY is the new code word)
3. BLM and CRT and OTHER RACE-BAITERS – pushes for everything to be viewed through the lens of RACE. Promotes “neo-racism” as a means of achieving “equity”.
4. HRC – pushes for everyone to be viewed through a lens of GENDER (in the same way that BLM wants everything viewed through a lens of RACE). This goes beyond protecting right s of LGBTQ+ to upending all of society and forcing people to accept their radical views of gender. That means 97% of people have to change their language, their customs and their culture to serve the 3% of people who are not happy with their biological sex. It’s no longer civil rights for Gay people (a mission which has largely already succeeded) it has morphed into a political organization whose goals are political (not civil rights).
How could you overlook Bill Gates and his population reduction agenda?
Remember when the 10th Amendment used to actually be a thing?
Does this new policy framework apply to the folks in pretrial confinement relating to 1/6? If not why not?
It doesn’t apply to ‘domestic terrorists’. Like the Jan 6 political prisoners and parents who scare school board members by threatening to vote them out.
Don’t worry. Bail can now take the form of blow, pony, horse, dojo, skunk, crank, chunk, oxy, fent, quad, tab, E, blue nitro, and roopies.
the next GOP president’s Gender Equity Plan will include lower taxes, less government regulation, and a strong national defense.
The neo-Marxist Dems aren’t going to like it when their new weapons are used against them.
The neo-con Republicans are never going to understand how to use those new weapons against them.
I’m confused. I thought we needed to eliminate cash bail to prevent climate change.
If Biden had announced he wanted to eliminate cash bail on account of “Racial equity,” I wouldn’t have batted an eyelash.
But “gender equity?” Males are apprehended in vast multiples compared to females. How do you apply gender equity to that? Apprehend more females, then don’t charge them bail?
Democrat logic is not even wrong. It has miles to go before even achieving wrong.
If eliminating cash bail is related to gender ‘equity’, imagine what new draconian leftwing control-freak policies they’ll be able to say are related to ‘climate-change’.
Here’s how The Regime now operates…
1) Pick a totalitarian authoritarian fascist leftwing policy you want to impose on the peasants without having to bother with going to Congress.
2) Choose one (or more) of the following ‘national emergencies’ to use as an excuse.
a) gender/race equity
b) climate change
c) Covid epidemic
d) gun violence epidemic
e) ‘domestic terrorism’
3) Put out the word to Dem-media propaganda complex hacks and flunkies there will be an ‘important’ announcement and prep them with talking points.
4) Announce the new ‘policy’ to combat [national emergency picked in step 2].
Welcome to our Orwellian nightmare.
Let’s Go Brandon!
If it was about gender equity they would be pushing to arrest more women and fewer men. The fact that more men are arrested can be explained in no other way than that the legal system is systemically sexist.
Indulgence of liberal license through judicial inference or social justice. The probability of being caught in a handmade tale of your own construction is directly proportional to progress. Principles matter.
Black males crime rate makes white males look like saints.
So, this plan excludes the transgender spectrum? But includes trans-socials.
Gender is sex-correlated physical and mental (e.g. sexual orientation) attributes.
Soros might as well be president. Maybe he already is.
WORLD’S BIGGEST DEMOCRACY FOR SALE – CHEAP
Amazing what a few $ billion can do. I thought it would take more than a couple of billion to buy our democracy. Apparently, I was wrong.
Hey, when I moved from Baltimore to Portland in 1996, I said that Portland was so nice even the liberals couldn’t screw it up. So I join you in being wrong.
Putting asperm donors in the slammer hurts black women and children in ..what… 80% being single parent (female) families?
I live in a catch and release state. It’s almost impossible to get bond or pre-trial detention on a suspect unless you’ve got video of them hacking someone up with a knife. Suspects are released on ankle monitors that are NOT monitored, yet are counted as time served during sentencing. It’s no wonder why so many people have decided the legal system isn’t the answer to their problems and they need to take care of business themselves.
If you’re not already taking care of business yourself, you’re not paying attention.
In Houston, at LEAST 137 people are dead at the hands of felons released on low/no cash bond. There is currently a LOT of anger at the current crop of Drmocrat judges, and justifiably.
