Joe Biden has decided that schools that don’t toe his radical transgender agenda will have their school lunch budgets cut.
You read that right. Joe Biden wants to starve kids if they don’t agree with his dangerous transgender policies.
Per The Blaze:
President Joe Biden’s administration has moved forward with a new interpretation of Title IX anti-discrimination laws that could potentially strip federal funding for school lunches from schools that do not let transgender students use their preferred bathrooms or play on preferred sports teams.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture announced last month it will interpret federal anti-discrimination law “to include discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.” Its decision is based on an executive order Biden signed after assuming office in January 2021, as well as the Supreme Court’s decision in Bostock v. Clayton County, which found that Title VII protections against sex discrimination extend to discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.
“As a result, state and local agencies, program operators and sponsors that receive funds from FNS must investigate allegations of discrimination based on gender identity or sexual orientation,” the USDA said in a May 5 statement, first reported by the Center Square. “Those organizations must also update their non-discrimination policies and signage to include prohibitions against discrimination based on gender identity and sexual orientation.”
What this means is that any recipients of the USDA’s Food and Nutrition Services child nutrition programs, including the National School Lunch Program, could lose federal funding if they do not comply with Biden’s new interpretation of Title IX.
South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem blasted Biden for this absurd move.
“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,” Noem said. “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.”
Joe Biden has threatened to take away children’s school lunch money to pursue his radical agenda.
He’s targeting states like ours that make it clear biological men do NOT belong in girls’ bathrooms and sports.
If you act on this, Joe, we’ll see you in court and we will win. pic.twitter.com/i8oU0aYTfL
