SHIELDS: Follow Matt Walsh’s Lead


Wednesday, October 5, 2022

Abortion is the Left’s unholiest sacrament and thus held most dearly by those who adhere to their godless Puritanism. It is not, however, their sole sacrament. The rite of transgenderism is another of a similarly barbaric nature. 

For far too long, conservatives turned a blind eye to this evil in the name of politeness and compassion, as if God’s command to show a perfect courtesy toward all people compelled us to permit oppression, distance ourselves from the fatherless, and speak not of the widow’s cause. 

Matt Walsh is leading conservatives toward giving justice to the weakest among us. 

In September, Walsh exposed damning information about Vanderbilt University Medical Center’s so-called gender-affirming care. A doctor promoted these operations because of how much profit they render: $40,000 for “chest reconstruction” (Newspeak for chopping off the healthy breasts of girls and women); at least $20,000 for a vaginoplasty surgery; and “up to $100,000” for a female-to-male bottom surgery (Newspeak for carving the flesh from a girl or woman’s “arm, thigh, back, or abdomen” to remove her vagina and replace it with a fake penis). Vanderbilt has also given hormone treatment to children as young as thirteen.

Vanderbilt’s Dr. Shayne Taylor bragged, “These surgeries are labor intensive, there are a lot of follow-ups, they require a lot of our time, and they make money.” 

In pursuit of their greed and their evil ideology, doctors and nurses have mutilated and abused children. 

Vanderbilt is sadly not unique. When the New York Times surveyed pediatric gender clinics across our republic, they found that eleven clinics “carried out a total of 203 procedures on minors in 2021, and many reported long waiting lists… six said that they referred patients to surgeons in private practice.”

But what Walsh and the Daily Wire have done is unique. They exposed the evil of the Left, and Walsh forced the Tennessee GOP to abandon the passivity that has come to define the Republican Party and take action to protect our children. 

Walsh deserves great praise for this. In our fallen world, many allow the abuse of women and children to persist because they fear the cost of righteousness and the wrath of the abusers. He is exposing the unfruitful works of darkness, and defending the rights of the afflicted. May God bless him in his endeavor and may we follow his lead. 

We should demand that Republicans outlaw this barbaric practice. Imprison doctors and nurses who mutilate children; revoke the licenses of those who lie to patients that men can be women and women can be men. Allow malpractice lawsuits against doctors, nurses, and hospitals that abuse children with these vile procedures, and require that if found guilty the abusers must pay the legal fees of the abused. Remove children from abusive homes that subject them to these horrors, and punish abusive parents as we punish all other forms of child abuse. 

Christ told us, “[E]veryone who does wicked things hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his works should be exposed” (Jn. 3:20). With the light now exposing them, the Left is responding with sin and tyranny. 

Our medical institutions, having been infiltrated by the Left, now serve as one of its priestly lines. They have put on their white coats as their ephods and replied to our anger over their abuse and lies by saying that their thoughts are not our thoughts, neither are their ways our ways, and who are you, O man, to answer back to them? 

The American Academy of Pediatrics, American Medical Association, and Children’s Hospital Association wrote a letter to Attorney General Garland labeling investigations like Walsh’s “disinformation,” and asked him “to investigate and prosecute all organizations, individuals, and entities responsible.” They blamed those reporting their abuse for the threats of violence hospitals are receiving; the moral equivalent of the South demanding the North cease discussing the evils of slavery because of John Brown’s raid.

The Pride Liberation Project promises to kidnap children whose parents wish to protect them from this harmful ideology and “rehome” them with “queer friendly” adults. 

California passed a law which, according to the Daily Wire, “restricts California officials and health providers from cooperating with out-of-state attempts to stop a child from getting gender health services, which could include puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones, or gender surgery.”

The Left is enraged that Walsh is revealing the evil of their gender ideology and will do everything in their power to stop him. They want to silence him because they know this is a fight they will lose. So join the fight and win this battle. Follow Matt Walsh’s lead, and protect our children from this abuse.

We’ve defeated Gnosticism before, and we will defeat it again.
