COLGAY PRIDE CALLS TRUMP’S REVOCATION OF OBAMA POLICY FOR TRANSGENDER PERSONS RESTROOM A MAJOR SETBACK TO THE LGBT COMMUNITY
Colgay Pride of Columbus Georgia and it’s Director today is calling the revocation order from President Trump regarding former President Obama’s Transgender bathroom policy for students a Major Setback for the LGBT Community.
Director Hobbs said “I knew this was going to be a hot topic when it was put into action last year by the Obama administration, but we had moved on and forward from that time and people were finally getting the feel of what was meant to happen with the inclusion of Unisex Restrooms and so forth. All we ask is for our students to go and learn and go to the bathroom without incident or fear from bullying and harassment of other students who are being taught by religious leaders and parents to demonize people who are different from them.”
Hobbs went on to say “All we have to do it look at the fine example of Target Stores here in Columbus and around our country. They took a hot topic like this and endured a lot of religious nut jobs running through their stores screaming and yelling out bible verses they chose to follow or use as a tool to hate and spread hate all due to ignorance, but when all was said and done it was more so about accommodating all its customers and by doing so they are working to provide those Family/Unisex bathrooms. All Transgender people want to do is GO TO THE BATHROOM AND USE IT AND LEAVE.” Hobbs said “It takes sick minds to think up something bizarre that Transgender citizens are sick and perverted, when in fact its more heterosexuals who molest children and do perverted acts in bathrooms. All we have to do is look to the Republican party at Former ANTI-LGBT Senator Larry Craig who was caught trying solicit sex in a men’s bathroom. It has always been my experience the ones who cry foul the loudest when it comes to LGBT equality are the ones who are hiding something about their own selves and because they hate themselves so much for feeling those feelings they lash out against everyone else that has the courage to be who they are.”
Hobbs will grant interviews regarding the policy. Just call or text Jeremy Hobbs at 706-580-6239
President Donald Trump’s administration on Wednesday revoked landmark guidance issued to public schools in defense of transgender student rights, reversing course on a signature initiative of former Democratic President Barack Obama.
Obama instructed public schools in May 2016 to allow transgender students to use the bathrooms matching their chosen gender identity, threatening to withhold federal funding if they should force transgender children to use bathrooms against their will.
The Trump administration action withdrew that guidance while the Justice and Education departments continue to study the legal issues involved.
Reversing the Obama guidelines stands to inflame passions in the latest conflict in America between believers in traditional values and social progressives, and is likely to prompt more of the street protests that followed Trump’s Nov. 8 election.
A couple hundred people gathered in front of the White House to protest the Trump action, waving rainbow flags and chanting: “No hate, no fear, trans students are welcome here.” The rainbow flag is the symbol of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people.

I mean, really? Who thought this was gonna happen?!
From The Hill:
“Elton will not be performing at Trump’s inauguration,” the rep told the New York Post. Anthony Scaramucci, a vice chair of the presidential inaugural committee, claimed Tuesday that John would play on the National Mall for the inauguration in January.
John endorsed Hillary Clinton over Trump during the 2016 race, however, and headlined fundraisers for the Democratic presidential nominee as recently as last month.
tell us how you really feel!
From CBS via Raw Story:
A voter named Barbara explained that she was motivated to support Trump because “morality and values” were important to her.
“Based on what the country was based on,” she said. “I think that the laws that Obama has passed, the way the country has — I call it down turning. Some of the other people are proud of it and happy for it. I personally am against it, the homosexuals, the abortions. All the stuff, I am against.”
“When Donald Trump says ‘Make American Great Again,’ is that what you hear?” Dickerson wondered. “That it’s going to go back to before the time that you’re now describing?”
That’s part of it,” Barbara agreed.
Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump have both won Georgia in the #SuperTuesday Primary. It was largely predicted by polls that both candidates would win Georgia and the lion’s share of states in both major primaries on Tuesday.
Georgia contributes 102 out of 3,657 delegates to the Democratic National Convention and 76 out of 2,108 delegates to the Republican National Convention.
From The New York Times:
COLUMBIA, S.C. — Jeb Bush dropped out of the presidential race on Saturday, ending a quest for the White House that started with a war chest of $100 million, a famous name and a promise of political civility but concluded with a humbling recognition: In 2016, none of it mattered.
No single candidacy this year fell so short of its original expectations. It began with an aura of inevitability that masked deep problems, from Mr. Bush himself, a clunky candidate in a field of gifted performers, to the rightward drift of the Republican Party since Mr. Bush’s time as a consensus conservative in Florida.
Mr. Bush’s campaign had rested on a set of assumptions that, one by one, turned out to be flatly incorrect: that the Republican primaries would turn on a record of accomplishment in government; that Mr. Bush’s cerebral and reserved style would be an asset; and that a country wary of dynasties would evaluate this member of the Bush family on his own merits.
Now with Jeb finally out, there’s only one governor in the GOP race for president, and he isn’t doing too hot.
Kasich, who is in the single digits, is now the only governor running against Trump, Cruz, Rubio and Carson. Only the two senators are doing double digits against Trump. Kasich or Carson will be next to drop out.
Cruz’s reactionary Christianism apparently didn’t woo enough South Carolinian GOP votes to overcome the “Trump Train”. This will be huge.
The last of the early single-state primaries for the GOP will be Nevada this coming Tuesday. Then the linchpin for the GOP – #SuperTuesday on March 1, including Georgia – will largely determine who will win the nomination. This coming week will be very busy.
BTW: Kasich, the “last moderate” in the GOP race, just signed a bill stripping state funding for Planned Parenthood clinics in Ohio. Among the 17 total declared major candidates for the GOP nomination this cycle, there were no sane candidates to begin with.
Donald Trump, who is running for the GOP nomination for this year’s presidential election, does not believe in marriage equality, but does support non-discrimination protections for sexual orientation. He also greatly dislikes President Obama, who has more consistently spoken and done more in favor of SOGI equality than any other president. Today, he’s going in on his primary challenger from the GOP’s social conservative wing, Ted Cruz. And it is NASTY.
He also eviscerated Cruz over the latter’s citizenship and loan history.
