February 25, 2021 | House Passes the Equality Act which Still Allows Discrimination

Martin Armstrong

Martin Arthur Armstrong is current chairman and founder of Armstrong Economics. He is best known for his economic predictions based on the Economic Confidence Model, which he developed.

The House of Representatives passed legislation that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex, sexual orientation, and gender identity, though it faces an uncertain future in the Senate. The legislation passed on a 224-204 vote which was mostly along with a party-line vote. Three Republicans voted with all Democrats.  The bill is one of Biden’s top legislative priorities, one he wanted to be passed in his first 100 days in office. It actually amends the landmark Civil Rights Act of 1964, which had banned discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, and national origin. It is to be expanded to include protections on the basis of sex, sexual orientation, and gender identity. It also would prohibit such discrimination in public places, on transportation, and in government-funded programs.

There are concerns that someone would be forced to hire a cross-dresser to be a hostess in a top restaurant. But noticeably absent is class discrimination. Class is omitted for that would end Marxism. Class discrimination takes place basis on a person’s social class. Interestingly, the Democrats are engaging in Class discrimination right now. It includes individual attitudes, behaviors, economic status, education status, and of course, political status. Kids are told they will never get a job without a degree – educational discrimination is used to sell college. Elon Musk upset the world when he said he would hire people without degrees if they pass his exam quite honestly because most programmers are self-taught.

Democrats, with help from the liberal media propaganda ministry, have branded any questioning of the 2020 election being “stolen” as “The Big Lie.” They have successfully tied the “Big Lie” to “Inciting Insurrection” in their second impeachment of President Trump. Now, they want to use repeating the “Big Lie” in and of itself to expel Republicans from Congress. Nancy Pelosi has been threatening to prosecute any Republicans who challenged the 2020 election results to expel them from Congress. Meanwhile, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wants to create lists of anyone who support Trump.

So while you cannot discriminate based upon religion, it is fair game to discriminate against anyone who is of the opposite political party or who has more money than you think they should be allowed to have. It seems that discrimination is ok as long as it has a political objective. So the answer would be the cross-dresser would be denied a job not because of how they dress, but who they voted for and that is perfectly fine?

How about we end ALL discrimination and that includes class! That might kill Marxism – OMG!
