New Derplahoman Lawmaker Comes Out Bat Shit Ablazin’
12:53 PM EST on January 26, 2021
For almost 14 years, we at The Lost Ogle have enjoyed shining the spotlight on the wacko legislation our Derplahoman lawmakers introduce each legislative session as part of their continued effort to impose their warped views and draconian "values" on the rest of us.
We do this because...
A) It gives us something to write about
B) It gives you something to click-on
On that note, we'd like to thank freshman Oklahoma State Senator Warren Hamilton for doing his part to keep this annual tradition alive. Fresh off beating incumbent Wade Boggs in a heated abolitionist derp'off in the moist and sweaty corner of Oklahoma's groin, he's come out bat shit ablazin' and introduced a wide variety of legislation that I'm sure is very popular with his core base in the local Baptist, militia and lawnmower racing movements.
We covered one of his attempts earlier this year when he introduced a bill that would give God-given inalienable rights to clumps of cells growing in a female body. You can read it here.
Since then, a couple other of bills have come to our attention.
For example, he recently introduced SB 676. It would prevent anyone under the age of 21 from getting a "gender reassignment medical treatment," because you know, nothing says limited-government conservative values than interfering with someone's ability to receive a legal medical treatment because it doesn't conform to a politician's moral code.
Check this out:
Like most Americans who grew up in the 20th century – a time when giving weird looks, sneers and laughs at people in the LGBTQ-etc spectrum was not only commonplace, but accepted and perpetuated in mass media and pop culture – I can see how a closed-minded, unsophisticated guy who's been indoctrinated to believe that his white, heterosexual way is the only way would introduce transphobic legislation like this. In fact, considering that describes a good chunk of Oklahoma's elected officials over the years, I'm surprised this bill isn't a law already!
If you're also one of those people, and knowing what I know about Oklahoma some of you are, I have advice for you. How about you stop worrying about other people's private healthcare decisions, especially the ones that don't affect you? Yes, I know the trans-stuff gives your simple mind some heebie-jeebies, but that's your problem, not theirs. Accept people for who they are, and maybe let them and their families figure out their best plan forward when it comes to gender and identity issues, as opposed to some politician from Nowhere, Oklahoma who still has a goatee from 1995 glued to his face.
In addition to his anti-trans stuff, Hamilton introduced a bill that would make Oklahoma a second-amendment sanctuary state, which makes as much sense as a lawmaker from Hawaii lobbying to make their state a rainbow and sunshine sanctuary state. At least it will get Hamilton some attaboys and hat tips the next time he's pretending to be Dirty Harry at an insurrection training course.
Hamilton has also, naturally, introduced a bill that would criminalize immunizations and mask mandates. Via McAlester News:
An Oklahoma lawmaker filed a bill that criminalizes schools and state or local government requiring protective face coverings and immunizations.
District 7 State Sen. Warren Hamilton, R-McCurtain, filed Senate Bill 352 to stop schools and state or local government from requiring a person to undergo unwanted medical procedure, use any medical device or wear a face covering.
“The government does not have those powers delegated to it under our constitution — they don’t have the authority to do that,” Hamilton said...
“I just want to retain people’s freedom to choose what they think is best for the health of them and the people that are under their care,” he added.
Yep, he just wants to "retain people’s freedom to choose what they think is best for the health of them and the people that are under their care." Unless, of course, they think gender reassignment medical treatment is "best." Like any good Deprplahoman, at least he's consistent in his hypocrisy.
