Alinskyite fascism reared its ugly head in Congress earlier this week when a self-righteous, smug Congresswoman shouted down a law professor opposed to trans bathrooms, relentlessly calling her an “ignorant bigot” for having the gall to question the agenda. Since Rep. Zoe Lofgren feels so inclined to flippantly label people with disparaging terms, we’ll just go ahead and throw one back at her. That word is evil. Lofgren’s prominent display of leftist evil began when she read a statement submitted by U.S. Civil Rights Commissioner Gail Heriot, also a law professor at USD. Heriot’s testimony did nothing other than state the objective reality that biology determines an individual’s sex, in order to combat the Obama administration’s mandate that all public schools allow transgender students to use bathrooms and showers of the opposite sex. Her testimony to the House Judiciary Committee’s Task Force on Executive Overreach read as follows:
If I believe that I am a Russian princess, that doesn’t make me a Russian princess, even if my friends and acquaintances are willing to indulge my fantasy. Nor am I a Great Horned Owl just because – as I have been told – I happen to share some personality traits with those feathered creatures.
Rather than respond with some line of argumentation or logical appropriation, Lofgren immediately launched into feigned outrage to shut Heriot up, employing feelings instead of fact. Calling her testimony “offensive,” Lofgren went on to say: “I think it’s very regrettable that that comment was put in the record.” When Heriot responded by saying the Obama administration’s mandate was “offensive,” Lofgren launched into her tirade. “I think you’re a bigot, lady! I think you’re an ignorant bigot! I think you’re an ignorant bigot – and, and….” Lofgren said until Rep. Steve King, who chaired the committee, interrupted her. “You’ll not be recognized to do that,” said King. “We don’t call people names on this committee.” Getting the last word, Heriot replied to Lofgren: “Does that mean you think I am a Russian princess?” Lofgren’s blatant display of unhinged, illogical fascism has now become the stuff of legend among the left, who have since been regarding her as a hero. The Huffington Post, Slate, Salon, and The Advocate have all been praising Lofgren for her “zero tolerance” of transphobia.
