It was bound to happen sooner or later that the “enlightened” minds of someone of the nation’s institutions of higher learning would express reflection on the fantasies coming from the higher education sector.
Lummis, introduced as the first female senator elected to represent Wyoming, told an auditorium of graduates on Saturday that they woke up with “more individual freedom in the most creative, divinely inspired nation on Earth,” yet those freedoms are increasingly being tested by examples of government overreach in the past few years.
“There are those in government who believe not that the Creator endowed us with unalienable rights, as the founders of our nation acknowledged in the Declaration of Independence, but that government created those rights and that government should redefine those rights, including our rights to freedom of speech, religion, property, assembly, and to keep and bear arms,” she said. “Even fundamental scientific truths, such as the existence of two sexed, male and female, are subject to challenge these days.”
The crowd erupted with boos and heckling, and, in response, Lummis interjected, “I’m not making a comment on the fact that there are people who transition between sexes.”
“I personally question how under our Constitution we could forbid in-person worship services during a pandemic while labeling liquor stores as essential and keeping them open,” the senator said, continuing her prepared remarks with a smile. “And how the creation of a government disinformation board is not an affront to free speech.”
What exactly was wrong with what Senator Lummis had to say was not clear, but she issued an apology anyway, which seems to be the way life goes in America these days. We now apologize for telling the truth.
