Democrats Push Apology for Historic LGBTQ Discrimination in Government

Looks like the federal government might be gearing up for another round of apologizing—this time, it’s for historical discrimination against LGBTQ government workers dating all the way back to 1949. Leading this charge are two Democratic senators, Tim Kaine of Virginia and Tammy Baldwin of Wisconsin, along with 18 other Democratic backers. These progressive champions had previously introduced an identical resolution in 2021, but evidently, it didn’t catch on back then.

Senator Kaine claims this resolution is a step toward rectifying past wrongs. Apparently, LGBTQ civil servants, Foreign Service officers, and service members have made “countless sacrifices” for national security, yet faced harassment, invasive investigations, and wrongful termination merely because of who they are. Sounds like the 1950s are being resurrected as the latest grievance chapter in the progressive playbook.

The resolution shines a spotlight on so-called past discriminatory actions against LGBTQ military personnel, particularly during the “lavender scare” of the late 1950s and ’60s. Back then, Senator Joseph McCarthy, always the convenient villain in progressive narratives, supposedly linked homosexuality to communism, triggering widespread persecution. Never mind the national security concerns of that era; in 2024, the only thing that matters is rewriting history through a 21st-century lens.

Fast forward to 2017, and former Secretary of State John F. Kerry took it upon himself to issue an apology to LGBTQ State Department employees for past discrimination, including actions during that “lavender scare.” Apparently, words were supposed to erase all perceived past injustices. Now, in typical fashion, a new resolution from Kaine and Baldwin aims to pile on more governmental regrets.

Kaine’s resolution highlights that over 100,000 LGBTQ service members were supposedly forced out of the U.S. military between World War II and 2011 due to their sexual orientation or gender identity. It also nods to the many who were compelled to conceal their identities and live in fear while serving. In the progressive narrative, it would seem no sacrifice or service rendered by these individuals ever went unnoticed or unappreciated.

The progressive establishment appears to love rewriting history and attributing today’s social mores to past eras. If Democratic lawmakers weren’t busy enough redistributing wealth and regulating speech, they’re now making sure the history books are aligned with their 2024 sensibilities.
