(PresidentialHill.com)- To mark President Joe Biden’s signing into law the Respect for Marriage Act, the White House staged a huge event on Tuesday that included lighting up the White House in the colors of the rainbow.
The president hosted the showy signing ceremony alongside Vice President Kamala Harris, Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer.
Also attending Tuesday’s over-the-top event were Treasury Secretary Pete Buttigieg, singers Sam Smith and Cyndi Lauper, as well as drag queen Marti Cummings, who frequently hosts Drag Queen Story Hour events.
During the ceremony, Biden claimed that the new law “and the love it defends” will “strike a blow against hate in all its forms.”
He also attacked Republican-led states that have passed laws protecting underage children from chemical and surgical mutilation, calling them “callous” and “cynical.” He claimed that the laws target supposed transgender children and terrify their families, declaring “We have to protect these children.”
Biden also made the outlandish claim that gay people can be “thrown out of a restaurant.”
The Respect for Marriage Act has nothing to do with “transgender children.” Instead, it legalizes gay and interracial marriages, which are already legal.
But Congress wanted to codify gay and interracial marriages just in case the Supreme Court overturns its 2015 decision in Obergefell v. Hodges or its 1967 decision in Loving v. Virginia. Neither of those is likely to happen, but since Democrats fearmongered over it for months, they had to follow through with this performative nonsense.
Speaker Pelosi thanked LGBT activists for their “impatience,” “persistence,” and “patriotism.”
Senator Schumer boasted that now his grandchild will “live in a world that respects and honors their mothers’ marriage,” as if Congress passing a law instantly makes the whole world respect gay marriage.
During her remarks, Kamala Harris demanded that Congress pass a law codifying abortion until birth, claiming that “fundamental rights” are “interconnected.”
