Biden and the Media Gaslight the Nation (Again), Claiming Biden Didn't Proclaim Easter Sunday to be the "Trans Day of Visibility"

When asked about Speaker Johnson's correct and completely accurate statement that Biden proclaimed, using the president's power to proclaim, that Easter Sunday would be the Trans Day of Visibility, Biden just lied and said he hadn't.

ididntdothatbidentransdayofvisibility.jpg


And, you'll never guess -- the Gaslight Media is backing his lie to the utmost.

The media's Liesplanation of this lie is that the Trans Extremists had pushed the last Sunday of March as this Fake Trans Holiday for four years. And so Biden was just acknowledging that it was once again time to celebrate this entirely fake holiday for mentally ill people and their enablers.

But, they picked this timing knowing that within just a few years, it would fall on Easter. They planned this. Anyone with an almanac or calendar function on their phone could see this collision coming from a few years ago.

Also, they refused to change the date this year. I'm sure if "Trans Day of Visibility" fell on the Muslim holiday of Eid, they would have scrambled to Make Alternate Arrangements.

Finally, as Ed Morrissey points out, Biden did in fact officially "proclaim" the fake holiday using his presidential power to proclaim. He didn't merely acknowledge it. He proclaimed it, and used that word in his press release.

You know what holiday he did not proclaim, but merely acknowledged?

That's right, Easter Sunday itself. See the link for more on that.

Incredibly, a concert hall in Nashville -- where the "Trans Day of Vengeance" shooter killed six people, including three young children -- is celebrating the Trans Day of Vengeance.

Yesterday was the one-year anniversary of the mass shooting at The Covenant School in Nashville, Tennessee by transgender killer Audrey Hale. As one might expect, there are some memorials planned, including one in Tennessee on Easter Sunday. But it won't be a solemn event paying tribute to the slain Christian children from the school. The event doesn't even have anything to do with Easter. Instead, the Graveyard Gallery in Murfreesboro, Tennessee will be hosting a rock concert celebrating "Trans Day of Vengeance." March 31st was supposed to be the "Trans Day of Visibility," but apparently most of the activists in the community thought that "vengeance" was a better theme. Doing such a thing on Easter leads me to wonder if these people simply lack any sense of irony or if they're doing it to be deliberately provocative.

[The Daily Wire:]

A Tennessee music venue is hosting a "Trans Day of Vengeance" concert just days after the one-year anniversary of the deadly shooting at The Covenant School, in which a transgender-identifying woman killed three children and three adults, apparently out of ideological fury.

A flyer promoted by several bands says that the Graveyard Gallery in Murfreesboro is hosting the concert on March 31, and using it to raise money for a group that provides gender reassignment surgery. The shooting occurred on March 27, 2023, at the Christian school in Nashville, less than an hour away.

The party comes with Nashville schools in high alert because of the potential for violence on the anniversary of the shooting.


Oh, and you'll never guess -- Biden only advertised Easter being "Trans Day of Visibility" on the White House's English language site. He wanted to show his gay-crazy AWFL voters he totally supports their madwoman drive to cut off their sons' penises to spite their ex-husbands.

He omitted mention of his conversion of the holiest day on the Christian calendar on the White House's Spanish language site.

The Biden administration's White House social media accounts have been criticized for their inconsistent messaging on the "Transgender Day of Visibility", with the Spanish language account, "La Casa Blanca", failing to acknowledge the day. This discrepancy has raised questions about the administration's approach to its Hispanic audience.

Key Details

The English White House social media account acknowledged both Easter and the "Transgender Day of Visibility" on March 31, while the Spanish account only recognized Easter and Cesar Chavez.

Support for President Biden among Hispanic voters has reportedly dropped significantly since the 2020 election.

Catholicism is the predominant faith among the Hispanic community in the U.S., which may have influenced the administration's decision to avoid mentioning the "Transgender Day of Visibility" on the Spanish account.

Maybe on the latter. I don't know if they even consider Easter. Four years ago was also about when TRANNY EVERYTHING ALL THE TIME hit full-tilt and didn't back off the accelerator. It could be coincidental.

What is *not* coincidental is that although this stupid offense nonsense has been "official" for quite some time apparently, nobody before Biden had his auto-pen go signing proclamations about it. That's all Biden and his handlers.

around here performing arts centers and theaters are really struggling

the ones we used to frequent

and will never, ever EVER go to again.

this is why. the performing arts almost entirely went NeoCommie. so long as FedGov pays their bills I guess they're fine but most of their potential donor class now knows they don't want us to even be alive, let alone present in their theaters.

unfortunately for them, other than I guess the Pritzgers the trannies they so love don't tend to donate money to the arts.

It can be both.

And the trans activists are extremely dangerous. If you delve into their online forums - the ones you can access or sneak into under false pretenses, anyway - it might shock you. They engage in violent fantasy and project onto normals lots and lots of murderous intent, which allows them to convince themselves that going on offense against the normals is just a preemptive defensive strike. They're gunned up, aggressive, engage in a lot of homicidal ideation and feel fully justified in planning to launch a war.

Ignore them and their bizarre, ironic "days of vengeance" at your peril. They're legitimately dangerous, and have the protection of the state.

As much as I'm enjoying the electron hot tarring of Biden and crew, the 31st of March only occurs on a Sunday once every eight years. Easter is on a Sunday, of course, but is based on a lunar determination which can vary from March to May.

The two only coincide about once every 50 to 100 years.

What is the "central tenet of Easter" that Biden supposedly "betrayed"? I assume "betrayed" is meant to invoke the betrayal of jesus and put Biden in that role. But what's this "central tenet" of Easter about? Not meaning to offend anyone as I am not Christian, but does jesus's death and resurrection story somehow involve hatred of transgender people?

I think I would hate to be a republican. They are always so unhappy and angry. They must need a lot of Tums.

there goes Biden again, including everyone in a positive light. What are we gonna do with him (reelect him, of course...)

March 31st is March 31st. It is confident in its identity. It is willing to share its talents and abilities with any other concept that wants to be in this specific time and space.

Easter is determined by solar and lunar events, the calculation of which date back to the dawn of human history. Just go enjoy all of the pagan symbolism and the feasting that celebrates the end of winter.

2. He is so out of it and the inmates have taken over the White House and used an autopen to sign his name to something he knew nothing about

So if you are Hispanic, you are automatically fluent in Spanish?

152 As much as I'm enjoying the electron hot tarring of Biden and crew, the 31st of March only occurs on a Sunday once every eight years. Easter is on a Sunday, of course, but is based on a lunar determination which can vary from March to May.

The two only coincide about once every 50 to 100 years.


This is incorrect.
From years 2001 to 2100, Easter is on March 31st in 2002, 2013, 2024, 2086, and 2097.

There are only THREE dates where Easter falls on a particular day five times in a 100 year span. April 15, April 20, and March 31. No date corresponds to Easter six times or more.

It appears March 31 was one of three possible candidates that collide with Easter the most times per century.

160 There are only THREE dates where Easter falls on a particular day five times in a 100 year span. April 15, April 20, and March 31. No date corresponds to Easter six times or more.

It appears March 31 was one of three possible candidates that collide with Easter the most times per century.

Would be really funny if the Orthodox convention ends up being used and this Trans visibility Date never ends up falling on Easter again. (I don't know anything about how the Orthodox calculate their Easter date, just that it's usually a week after the Catholic/protestant one, so no idea if it actually would sidestep this date in perpetuity).

You know the teacher is bloved when a birthday party is thrown for her by the students. One year, my fourth grade teacher's birthday - which I still know cold after all these years - fell right between Good Friday and Easter Sunday. So we had to commemorate her birthday the previous Thursday.

It helped, I think, that she was extremely religious. (If you got a note from her desk, for example, it was written on a personalized set, that featured a quote from the Book of Psalms. Yes, in a public school.)

209 AFTER TWO DECADES OF RIGHT-WING ALARM about a liberal “War on Christmas”, the backlash against the “War on Easter” has arrived...including the Biden White House supposedly banning religious themes from an Easter egg art contest for chicharge the administration had “betrayed . . . the resurrection of Christ” and affirmed LBGTQ activism as America’s new religion.

Trump’s campaign cried blasphemy, deplored the Biden White House’s “years-long assault on the Christian faith,” and bizarrely urged an apology to “Catholics and Christians”—perhaps a dog whistle to Trump supporters who believe Catholics not to be Christians.

Because this was a ragefest and not real concern, no tempers cooled after fact-checkers pointed out that Transgender Day of Visibility was not a Biden administration scheme to sideline or repurpose Easter Sunday. (Fact-checking is for libs, anyway.)

(How many Christians might actually be offended by this situation is hard to say: White evangelicals are the only group in which a majority believes that transgender acceptance in the United States has “gone too far”...

The Russians take advantage of that by celebrating two Chistmasses, one on Dec. 25 according to the Gregorian calendar, and another one 13 days later, which is Dec. 25 according to the Julian calendar that the Orthodox Church uses.

As with most things, they're much easier to find online than in meatspace.

Though in my experience (and being Catholic, I guess this counts as being my "lived Truth" or whatever), the people who make distinctions between Catholics and "Christians" tend to be Christians of the vaguely protestant variety that don't have a very strong theological background at all. It's less of a "I don't believe Catholics fall under the set of people who worship and follow Jesus" and more of a "I know that what Catholics do looks very different than what my experience of Christianity is so I'm going to verbalize that distinction without considering the fact that the label "christian" is more accurately applied to encompass both Catholics and my form of Christianity."

I'd never heard of them rejecting Easter. Christmas, sure. But the real descendants of the Puritans are Congregationalists (once "Independents") and Unitarians. Obviously the latter don't believe in the Resurrection. But the former used to believe it. Now dead, no doubt, like so many "mainstream" Protestant churches.

now meanwhile my kids are pushing us to switch to the mega church lol because they clearly had a whole shebang going on last Sunday. we just have incredibly long sad vigils on Good Friday and super long Palm Sunday masses lol. we don't serve donuts even! so boring at the RCC.

What they HATE is Western Civilization. Anyone who has ever taken a "Western Civ" course, or rather anyone who has taken one before college went completely to shit, knows that Western Civilization starts with the Hebrews, moves to the Greeks, touches on the Egyptians, then heads to Rome. Rome adopts Christianity and Viola what we know as "Western Civilization" is solidified. Europe drags back "classical" thinking into the main stream and education and moves on from there.

These communist asswipes have to destroy Western Civ to get to global communism and collectivism which doesn't work with Christ.

355 The contemporary Gregorian calendar is hyper-accurate, which you get to deal with if you work in IT.

We have leap days, of course, which everyone knows about and that system is good enough for everyday precision.

But there are also periodic leap seconds to adjust real time (solar time) to constant time (atomic time). Solar time moves around a bit as the earth doesn't spin at perfectly constant speed.

Leap seconds are a bitch and can have lots of interesting side-effects - like the Cisco bug that made some of their Nexus switches lock up during the transition from 2015 to 2016 (when the leap second was added).

The "mega" churches are a whole, social way of life. While I do not ascribe bad intentions to them, they embrace a little too much of "the world" and not quite enough of the Father.
But a nice lady that used to be my neighbor left the "mega" Catholic Church in my "former" town, because she had thought it had become too impersonal and big (and this is the same church that Tonypete of AOS notoriety used to attend before he moved).
I am not a Catholic member, but attend Mass with my wife, who is Catholic. The Mass is not that much different from the old Lutheran (ELCA) service I went to a long time ago. And that service has "modernized".

371 364 Went to a football game in Baton Rouge a few years ago. Right at the edge of campus was a sign for a law firm: "In jail?" and the phone number.

Just like the shipyards, right? LSU is an experience. I actually love Baton Rouge, I love NOLA, too. Except the Quarter. I never go to the Quarter, ever.

372 309 TBF, the old-school conservative Catholics don't consider anyone but Catholics to be Christians. The rest are schismatics or heretics, and are destined for Hell.

Incorrect. If you want to know what old school conservative Catholics think, ask them.

We rag on them by calling it the Protestant Revolt instead of the Reformation but its been a while since the 30 years war and even then the last years were not religious but national.

373 This comes in handy during church league softball season. The chief priest will sign off on anyone playing for them.

Render unto the softball league the things that are softball, render unto God the things that are God's.

374 the old-school conservative Catholics

Whoa no. Catholics got far away from that, for quite a while.
You're thinking of new-school conservative Catholics.

376 LSU women's basketball head coach sez, "Whoopsie, I don't even know when they play the national anthem. I didn't intentionally skip it."

http://tiny.cc/x29mxz

I don't believe her.
Posted by: bonhomme

For that to be true (it isn't) then that makes her a shitty coach. Was this her first game? She didn't know when they play the anthem but the other team/coach did? She's taking the Biden approach - do something and then deny, deny, deny.

377 "I disagree with the idea that they want a response from Normals. They may want one or two over a period of time to justify their hate and agenda, but they don't want Normie stepping off the porch.
"When that happens the country changes for ever and it'll be talked about in hushed whispers for decades."

I agree that that's what will (and/or should) happen if and when Normie steps off the porch. What the mentally ill and their provocateurs/enablers are banking on (rightly or wrongly) is a noisy but ultimately inconclusive response that gets them the Enabling Act they've been salivating for.

378 I believe one of two things happened:
1. He signed the proclamation knowing and agreeing with the content and lied about it (OR)
2. He is so out of it and the inmates have taken over the White House and used an autopen to sign his name to something he knew nothing about
YMMV

I could believe that his handlers shoved all the documents requiring his signature on Friday in front him and he would've signed. If he asked what it was, they may have explained, but avoided any mention of The Day of visibility coinciding with Easter. Five minutes later, he would likely have no recollection of what he signed or why. Then he read some words that he was told to read. Angry denial, on Monday, of having committed such an odious act sounds par for the course with late-stage dementia.

379 And in other headlines, BIG BROTHER Biden and The Party wish to announce that the chocolate ration has been increased to 20 grams per week. They also noted that rumors of the ration having previously been 30 grams is just a nasty rumor started by agents of Goldstein.

380 I rarely comment, but noticed that the "Day of Vengeance" celebration in Murfreesboro TN is located within a half hour or so of the church where a trailer of burned bibles was found the same day. They think the church was targeted due to their vocal beliefs regarding trans.

I would bet the people involved were at both places.
