‘I’m going to take your lunch money’: Biden tries to bully schools into complying with transgender bathroom policies

President Joe Biden’s USDA has announced that it plans to strip school lunch funding from schools that don’t let transgender students use the bathroom they want to use, as well as locker rooms, showers, and sleeping arrangements on trips.

The consequence comes from the redefinition of Title IX by the Biden administration last month to prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity, not just race and gender.

Fight for Schools Executive Director Ian Prior told Fox News that it amounts to Biden holding schools “hostage” if they don’t comply with woke ideology.

The funding feeds 30 million children around the country, including the poorest in the country.

“Using children as pawns”

“I honestly have no idea how providing food to children in schools is somehow connected to transgender policies,” Prior said, adding that the Biden administration is “using children as pawns in this social justice, gender ideology game that they are playing.”

They are trying to take over the schools by their actions, he said.

“What you’re seeing here is really the Biden administration saying ‘you’re going to do what I want or I’m going to take your lunch money…for the federal government to come in and really tie school nutrition and school lunch programs to this radical ideology is terrifying, and it’s appalling,” he went on.

South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem (R) said she would sue the administration over the rule.

“Defending fairness”

“President Biden is holding lunch money for poor Americans hostage in pursuit of his radical agenda. He is insisting that we allow biological males to compete in girls’ sports or else lose funding for SNAP and school lunch programs,” she said, promising to fight the new rule.

“South Dakota will continue to defend basic fairness so that our girls can compete and achieve. I would remind President Biden that we have defeated him in litigation before and are ready to do so again. Mr. President, we’ll see you in court.”

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) also said he would fight the administration’s rule.

The rule will be formally proposed this month and won’t be adopted for several months to allow for public comment. Let’s just hope the public comments very honestly and can make the administration think twice.
