The establishment has full control of the Washington, D.C. Swamp.
That’s why it’s so important for Republicans to fight back on the local level.
Now a GOP Governor is finally standing up to the radical Left with this move.
South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem is promoting a bill that would ban biological males from competing in female athletics.
Noem had previously vetoed the bill, which made people speculate that she had caved to pressure from the NCAA and other organizations that were threatening to pull business from the state.
Noem, who had been a hero among the Right for refusing to lock down her state and bend the knee to the COVID regime, was suddenly catching flak from her Right flank.
Nevertheless, Noem seems back on board with the legislation now.
The bill states:
Any interscholastic, intercollegiate, intramural, or club athletic team, sport, or athletic event that is sponsored or sanctioned by an accredited school, school district, an athletic association or organization, or an institution of higher education under the control of either the Board of Regents or the Board of Technical Education must be designated as one of the following, based on the biological sex at birth of the participating athletes:
(1) Females, women, or girls;
(2) Males, men, or boys; or
(3) Coeducational or mixed.
“Only female athletes, based on their biological sex, may participate in any team, sport, or athletic event designated as being for females, women, or girls.”
The issue of transgender competitors in women’s sports cropped up again when an athlete on the University of Pennyslvania swim team transitioned and recently dominated the field.
Transgender swimmer Lia Thomas won an event by an absurd 38 seconds over the second-place competitor.
Noem said of the legislation:
“This is about fairness. Every young woman deserves an equal playing field where she can achieve success, but common sense tells us that males have an unfair physical advantage over females in athletic competition. It is for those reasons that only girls should be competing in girls’ sports.”
It’s absurd that it even needed to be said, but this is how much leftists have corroded common sense.
Noem, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, and other Republicans need to exercise their power at the state level because there is so much red tape and resistance at the national level.
Republicans who refuse to engage in the culture war are going to get left behind.
