One of Joe Biden’s highest priorities while in office has been promoting abortion to one and all.

The other has been promoting transgenderism, and all of its idiosyncrasies that leave people not knowing whether they person they’re talking to has a self-image as male or female. Or something else.

Now the State Department is pushing that confusion, the idea of sex ‘fluidity.”

Following instructions from Secretary of State Antony Blinken to all State staffers not to use words like “father.”

It is National Review that confirmed in February, just as the U.S. was dealing with dozens of strikes against Iranian-backed militants over their murders of three American soldiers, that Blinken “found time” for his dictate.

“Making assumptions about another person’s gender identity based on their appearance or name ‘can be problematic’ and send a ‘harmful, exclusionary message,'” Blinken claimed in a cable telling State workers not to tolerate “son-daughter” or “mother-father” or “husband-wife.”

National Review said it got the text of the letter and confirmed its messaging.

“The subject of the cable is ‘Modeling DEIA: Gender Identity Best Practices,’ and its aim is to ‘increase understanding of gender identity and provide guidance on gender identity language and best practices that support an inclusive work environment,'” the report charged.

It continues the politically correct claim that gender is a social construct.

“Commonly used pronouns could include she/her, he/him, they/them, and ze/zir,” the cable said.

Also required is “gender-neutral” wording, Blinken demanded.

“Problematic terms like ‘manpower,’ ‘you guys,’ ‘ladies and gentlemen’ and even ‘mother/father,’ ‘son/daughter,’ and ‘husband/wife’ should be avoided,” it said.

Better would be “y’all,” or without the Southern drawl, “you all.”

The report warned, “The cable is the latest move by Blinken to inject woke, left-wing identity-based activism into the State Department bureaucracy.”

A commentary by Tyler O’Neil at The Daily Signal suggested, “Someone needs to tell the Biden administration that George Orwell’s novel ‘Nineteen Eighty-Four’ isn’t an instruction manual.”

He explained, “The administration, and the Left more broadly, has adopted a form of totalitarian ‘newspeak’ that aims to make criticism of transgender orthodoxy unthinkable by eliminating gendered words from the English language. This echoes the totalitarian government of ‘1984,’ which systematically seeks to destroy words in order to render criticism of the government unthinkable.”

He also noted that while Blinken was upbraiding staff about the use of those words, he wasn’t paying attention to his own comments, as he said, on November 11, “We stand united in honoring the brave men and women who served our country.”

WND SPECIAL REPORT – “IT’S TRUMP VS. SWAMP PSYCHOPATHS”: From the Biden administration’s enthusiastic support for amputating body parts of troubled children, to its obsession with bringing as many millions of illegal aliens, terrorists and Chinese soldiers as possible into America, it is increasingly clear that many of this nation’s current leaders are, to put it plainly, stark raving mad.

Indeed, psychiatric experts are finally documenting how the symptom profiles of scary conditions like “Borderline Personality Disorder” and “Narcissistic Personality Disorder” PERFECTLY MATCH today’s top leaders.

One groundbreaking peer-reviewed study published in 2023 documents how left-wing extremism is closely associated with “psychopathic tendencies.” Likewise, retired psychiatrist Brad Lyles, M.D., explains how “one way of understanding the increasingly outlandish beliefs and behaviors of the left is through the lens of Borderline Personality Disorder.” And one of America’s top forensic psychiatrists, Lyle Rossiter, M.D., described Barack Obama’s mental state as “Malignant Narcissistic Personality Disorder.”

Consider a typical description of sociopathy: “Sociopaths are often well-liked because of their charm and high charisma, but they do not usually care about other people. They think mainly of themselves and often blame others for the things that they do. They have a complete disregard for rules and lie constantly. They seldom feel guilt or learn from punishments.” Remind you of anyone?

From Joe Biden and Kamala Harris to their presidential Cabinet – including Attorney General Merrick Garland, Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas and Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra – all of these people “have a complete disregard for rules and lie constantly.”

But it’s not just Democrat leaders. Multiple surveys now show how rank-and-file Democrats are TWICE as likely to be diagnosed with a mental disorder as Republicans – from depression to bipolar disorder to schizophrenia to narcissistic personality disorder. All this and much more is stunningly laid out in the March edition of WND’s critically acclaimed Whistleblower magazine, “IT’S TRUMP VS. SWAMP PSYCHOPATHS.” Don’t miss it – you will see the whole political-cultural-spiritual war raging in the U.S.A. in a whole new light.
