Convicted Military Traitor Granted Transgender Drugs By Army, Paid For By Taxpayers
By ROBERT RICH
Political correctness has yet again surfaced to bite the American taxpayer in the backside. According to recent reports, the government has approved taxpayer-funded hormone injections for American traitor Chelsea Manning (formerly Bradley Manning).
Manning was convicted in 2013 of sharing classified information with Wikileaks, which is a sort of journalistic organization aimed at governmental transparency. Being an intelligence analyst in the Army allowed Manning access to classified databases, which he later leaked for the world to see.
However, since the time of his incarceration, Manning has started down a road to alter his physical appearance in order to better represent that of his gender identity. According to Manning back in August of 2013 (via Breitbart):
“As I transition into this next phase of my life, I want everyone to know the real me. I am Chelsea Manning. I am a female. Given the way that I feel, and have felt since childhood, I want to begin hormone therapy as soon as possible. I hope that you will support me in this transition.”
As one would imagine, not everyone is so keen on the idea that a traitor and current inmate feels justified to receive cosmetic procedures at virtually no cost to himself. Since he’s up for parole in 8 years, he can do it himself and foot the bill as well when he gets out. Unfortunately, the courts don’t have the same sentiment.
Manning actually sued the government last year in a temper tantrum like state, saying it was unfair that they denied him the opportunity to have the body he feels he’s entitled to. Rather than simply denying the absurd request, they’ve decided that the better route to take would be to oblige Manning.
As released in a memo acquired by USA Today, Col. Erica Nelson, the commandant of the Fort Leavenworth Disciplinary Barracks in Kansas, wrote:
“After carefully considering the recommendation that (hormone treatment) is medically appropriate and necessary, and weighing all associated safety and security risks presented, I approve adding (hormone treatment) to Inmate Manning’s treatment plan.”
Since when do prisoners guilty of a crime have more rights than they need (i.e. shelter, food,necessary medical care)? If you want to work out your own feelings, feel free to do so – just not at the expense of the American taxpayer.
Didn’t we used to hang traitors? I guess now we turn them into women! This man has been granted the right to live, and now he wants to take advantage of the American taxpayer.
