Drain Obama’s LGBTQ Swamp – Sen. Mike Lee Blocks Radical Lesbian Legal Activist Chai Feldblum at EEOC as ‘Threat to Marriage’

Wednesday, December 19th, 2018

UPDATE: VICTORY: LGBTQ legal activist and Obama appointee Chai Feldblum has stepped down from the EEOC, thanks to the principled tenacity of Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah). Please contact Sen. Lee (info below) and THANK HIM for taking action in defense of truth, natural marriage and religious and First Amendment liberty! 

‘Gay Rights’ Over Religious Freedom? Radical lesbian activist and EEOC Commissioner Chai Feldblum (first nominated by Obama) was curiously reappointed to the federal agency by President Trump last year. But her nomination is stalled due to a Senate block by conservative Utah Sen. Mike Lee (R). The above is a screenshot of Feldblum’s Twitter page blocking AFTAH’s Peter LaBarbera–commentary in red is ours–demonstrating her lack of impartiality. Click to enlarge.

We applaud Senator Mike Lee (R-Utah) for putting a hold in the Senate on leftist lesbian legal activist Chai Feldblum, whom President Donald Trump foolishly reappointed to the federal EEOC (Equal Employment Opportunity Commission) last December. AFTAH has followed Feldblum (an atheist) for many years and fought her back in 2009 when she was first appointed to the EEOC by Obama. By the way, she petulantly blocks me on Twitter, indicating her lack of impartiality and strong activist bias.

Feldblum argues that the battle between “gay rights” and religious liberties is a “zero-sum game” and that LGBTQ legal activists should and invariably will win those fights. I don’t know what Trump was thinking when he reappointed her. After all, he ran for office pledging to his base of evangelical Christian voters that he would ardently defend religious freedom. And “LGBTQ rights” is the Number One threat to freedom of conscience in America today. How about draining that Obama LGBTQ swamp, Mr. President?

Below is a column that Sen. Lee wrote back in February. Please support him by calling his office, and the two Senators representing your state. –Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH; Twitter: @PeterLaBarbera

Take Action:

  1. Thank Sen. Lee, online HERE, or by calling his DC office: 202-224-5444. His Salt Lake City office number is 801-524-5933.
  2. Contact your own state’s U.S. Senators through the Capitol Switchboard at 202-224-3121 and urge them to reject this anti-marriage sexual revolutionary at the EEOC.
  3. Contact the White House online HERE or by calling 202-456-1111. Urge President Trump to drain Obama’s federal LGBTQ swamp by withdrawing the (re)nomination of Obama appointee and LGBTQ legal crusader Chai Feldblum.

A Threat to Marriage from the EEOC

By Sen. Mike Lee, Feb. 9, 2018

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah)

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission may seem like an unlikely threat to religious liberty and the institution of marriage. After all, the federal agency was created to combat workplace discrimination by the Civil Rights Act of 1964. But sadly, the agency created to fight discrimination now threatens to discriminate itself; one nominee to the commission’s five-member board wants to use the federal agency’s power to undermine our nation’s founding principles.

Chai Feldblum was first nominated to the EEOC by President Barack Obama in 2009, but she was not confirmed by the Senate. In March 2010, President Obama skirted the Senate by seating Feldblum on the commission when Congress was in recess. The Senate ultimately confirmed Feldblum on a 54-41 vote during a lame-duck session in December of that year. Only two Republicans voted for Feldblum’s confirmation.

Rabbis Blast Trump Re-nomination of LGBTQ Activist Chai Feldblum to EEOC

Wednesday, January 3rd, 2018

Excerpted from Breitbart.com. Also, to read an excellent background report on Feldblum by Family Research Council senior fellow Peter Sprigg, go HERE:

A coalition of rabbis is criticizing the Trump administration for re-nominating radical sexual identity activist Chai Feldblum to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).
The Coalition for Jewish Values (CJV), the largest rabbinic public policy organization in America, observes in a press release sent to Breitbart News that Feldblum, the architect of former President Barack Obama’s radical LGBT agenda, “cast the deciding vote when the EEOC termed it ‘unlawful sex discrimination’ to limit locker and shower facilities to those of a single biological gender, and has consistently shown a disregard for religious rights.”

As Obama’s most liberal gender ideology activist, Feldblum has said that whenever LGBT issues conflict with religious liberty and private property rights, religious liberty and private rights should lose.

The coalition notes that, in 2012, Feldblum was a member of the EEOC “when the US Supreme Court unanimously rejected its position, which Chief Justice John Roberts characterized as claiming ‘that the Religion Clauses have nothing to say about a religious organization’s freedom to select its own ministers.’”

“Feldblum has been truly unfriendly to accommodation of religious views,” said Eastern Regional Vice President of the CJV Rabbi Steven Pruzansky in the press statement. “The decision to renew her nomination seems jarringly discordant with the Trump Administration’s overall support for religious liberty.”
