Knights Party Press Release: June 10. 2024

Finally! Someone standing up for children. Fox News on Sunday June 9th., published this headline, “American College of Pediatricians issues fiery statement condemning child gender transition.”

A coalition of pediatricians, health policy groups and conservative organizations is calling on medical professionals to stop promoting transgender medical treatments for children.

The American College of Pediatricians (ACP) and allied groups styling themselves as “Doctors Protecting Children” have published a declaration urging mainstream American medical associations like the American Academy of Pediatrics to abandon support for so-called “gender-affirming care” for transgender youths.

“As physicians, together with nurses, psychotherapists and behavioral health clinicians, other health professionals, scientists, researchers, and public health and policy professionals, we have serious concerns about the physical and mental health effects of the current protocols promoted for the care of children and adolescents in the United States who express discomfort with their biological sex,” the declaration states.

Affirming that sex is a biological characteristic and that medical decisions “should not be based upon an individual’s thoughts and feelings,” including their self-professed “gender identity,” the groups assert that what is currently accepted as best practice treatments for gender dysphoria is actually harmful for patients. Their view is disputed by the larger medical community, which has established that gender is a social construct, not an inborn biological realty, and that validation and affirmation of a person’s internal self-identity are in their best interest.

“This is a form of child abuse that just a few years ago some American citizens were up in arms about being practiced in other countries.”, said Thomas Robb, the National Director of the Knights Party of the Ku Klux Klan, based in Harrison, Arkansas. “I remember a few years back there was a movement in America, by American citizens that claimed young girls were be sexually mutilated in Somalia, Guinea and Djibouti, and a few other countries by a procedure called ‘Female Genital Mutilation’, or (FGM). This procedure involves the partial or total removal of the external female genitalia for non-medical reasons. I find it ironic that these very same people that were up in arms about sexual mutilation in other countries have now found it acceptable for young girls in America to have the very same procedure for non-medical reasons. This concerns young girls, but in America, young boys are also falling victim to sexual mutilations. This shows how easily some folks minds can be re-programmed and manipulated by our government, and by the Mainstream Media.”
