Danielle Smith Wins a Tactical Victory, But Not a Strategic One

Celebrate, but not too much. This is a small victory. See what I mean in this week’s edition of Beyond Ironic”.

Lovers of freedom have been cheering Danielle Smith’s reinstatement of a modicum of sanity and common sense. In case you missed the news, the Premier of Alberta announced a ban on “gender reassignment” surgeries for children under 18 years of age, prohibiting puberty blockers for children under 16, etc. Most people likely see this as common sense, but the political “left” has pretty much lost their minds.


We must remember that we are in a war. This is not simply the political to-and-fro, left-vs-right that we are accustomed to. It really is war, and we must observe events with a degree of military detachment. Danielle Smith has achieved a tactical victory but not a strategic one. Let me explain what I mean.


This is a tactical victory because it moves Alberta society closer to saneness, rationality, common sense, and scientific truth and the rule of law. It has pushed back our adversary a bit and established and firm defensive position that will be difficult to assail.


Everyone should understand that there is nothing radical in Danielle Smith’s announcement. It is all completely consistent with centuries of statue law and English common law and thousands of years of cultural understanding amongst people of every time and place. Parents are responsible for their children. Period. The only difference between cultures and times has been the age of responsibility (age of majority). Nobody can just mutilate a child without their parent’s permission. This has always been a crime, and anyone involved in any way is a criminal.


Those who have now lost their minds and are screaming about “rights” have no idea what they’re talking about. There is no “right” to mutilate a child. There is no “right” to counsel and child to agree to their own mutilation, and this has always been understood to be manipulation of a vulnerable child.


In Alberta, it’s against the law for any child under 16 to get married or drive a car, or for any child under 18 to drink alcohol or vote. A dentist cannot fill a child’s cavity, a physiotherapist cannot lay hands on a child, without their parent’s written permission. When I was teaching, I couldn’t even walk 18-year-old students across the street from the school without the written permission of their parents. No clearly thinking person could possibly imagine that it is OK to sexually mutilate a child or give them endocrine disrupting drugs without their parent’s written permission. So, everything Danielle Smith said simply confirms existing laws and cultural practices in Alberta and throughout human history. There is no need to apologize or explain anything.


However, this is not a strategic victory, in my estimation, because it still accepts the lies. She started her speech with several minutes of obsequious appeals to the gender fraudsters and sexual fanatics. She accepted the whole lie of “gender ideology.”

We won’t have a strategic victory until people in leadership positions start speaking the truth. If you were born male, you cannot become female. If you were born female, you cannot become male. You cannot become the other sex by mutilating your sexual organs and completely dysregulating your endocrine system. The so-called “gender reassignment surgery” is a lie and a medical fraud.


Gender is not even a word that applies to mammals. Gender is a linguistic term. Certain words have a gender; humans do not. Humans, and all mammals, have a sex, of which there are exactly two. It’s not just our sexual organs that determine our sex. Every cell is our body has either XX chromosomes (female) or XY chromosomes (male). Everyone knows this. Every farmer knows that you don’t create a cow when you cut off a bull’s testicles. You create a steer—a sexually neuter animal that cannot reproduce and is good only for hamburgers.


This “issue” has nothing to do with sexuality and nothing to do with imaginary children’s “rights.” The whole “transexual issue” is not an issue at all. It is a fraud and a totalitarian subversive attack. As the old communist maxim says, the issue is never the issue; the issue is always the revolution. Unbeknownst to most of the “transgender” supporters (who are unfortunate useful idiots), the people who are pushing this agenda don’t give a rat’s ass for you feelings or your “gender.” What we are seeing in this “transgender” movement is clearly totalitarian subversion in action.


Another communist motto is, order out of chaos. First you create the chaos, then you use the chaos to destroy everything—people, families, religions, social structures, governments, etc.—then you create the totalitarian order you want. So, totalitarians use any issue they can, often non-issues and imaginary issues, to get people to fight amongst themselves and destroy themselves. That’s what the “trans” agenda is all about—destroying people, families, and societies. And when the “gender issue” has ceased its usefulness, it will be dropped like a hot potato and some other issue picked up to divide people, because it’s not about the issue at all.


Have you noticed that “women’s issues” have disappeared? Of course. Women have been thrown under the bus because their “issues” just aren’t useful anymore. Are you a female boxer and don’t want a man to beat the crap out of you? Too bad. Suck it up, princess, and get with the program. It’s all about “trans” rights now. Are you a 13-year-old girl swimmer in Ontario and don’t want to compete against a 50-year-old man? Same response. Keep your mouth shut or you’ll be kicked off the team and disgraced. He “identifies” as a 13-year-old girl, and we can’t hurt his precious feelings. Your feelings don’t count.


These “trans” people will also be thrown under the bus and forgotten once a better issue comes along. The revolution is about destroying individuals, families, and society. That’s what is going on. That’s what this is all about. That’s the truth that no one dares to speak, and we won’t have a strategic victory until people do dare to speak it. As always, the real tragedy is the millions of people who have fallen for the lies.


Until we are willing to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, we are playing our adversary’s game and we cannot win. The winning strategy is to tell the truth and let the chips fall where they may. One lesson of life (that sometimes comes with white hair) is that telling the truth may bring unpleasant consequences. But in any situation, telling the truth brings the best consequences possible. It’s time for all of us to start telling the truth.


God Bless You!

Well said Donald! And I am very excited for your next book tour! I bought your books at your last tour when you stopped through Chatsworth, ON and I just finished Parable 9 of your Lessons About Life this morning! It's a great spiritual guide for me. In fact, I find that you are the only mentor that speaks to me in a way I can digest while on my spiritual journey. Please come back to Chatsworth again!
