When a man betrays his country, he should be punished for his treason. But why should an innocent woman be expected to pay for that man’s crimes? That’s why genetic male Bradley Manning was sent to military prison, but “Chelsea” Manning will soon go free.
If you don’t like the idea of Obama freeing a traitor just because he’s pretending to be a girl, here’s some good news. Tom Vanden Brook, USA Today (with the numerous typos corrected throughout):
Army Pvt. Bradley Manning, the national-security leaker and transgender soldier, will lose his entitlement to military health care benefits under the terms of the sentence that President Obama commuted, according to the Army…
The Army has been providing him with treatment for gender dysphoria, including hormone treatments.
He had been a candidate for gender-reassignment surgery, which would have been paid for under the Pentagon’s new policy for transgender troops.
Now this traitor will have to pay for it himself. That shouldn’t be a problem, considering all the money that will be thrown at him the moment he leaves prison. He’s a leftist hero, because they want to pretend he’s a heroine, and he’ll be richly rewarded for telling his side of the story.
Which stinks, but at least I’m not paying for Bradley Manning to pretend to be a lady. He has the right to call himself whatever he wants, and undergo any medical procedures he wants, and delude himself about human biology however he wants. But I will not enable him by pretending he’s a woman, and I’m glad my tax dollars won’t be paying for this nonsense anymore.
Exit question: Who will play Manning in the inevitable movie? I’m thinking Jennifer Lawrence.
