Biden’s State Department Announces New ‘X’ Gender Passports While Americans Stranded In Afghanistan

The State Department celebrated issuing the first US passport with an “X” gender marker, even as hundreds of Americans are still left behind in Afghanistan.

In a press statement Wednesday, department spokesman Ned Price lauded the focus on implementing more ‘gender-inclusive’ policies.

“As the Secretary announced in June, the Department is moving towards adding an X gender marker for non-binary, intersex, and gender non-conforming persons applying for a U.S. passport or CRBA,” Price explained.

As such, he said, “The Department has issued the first U.S. passport with an X gender marker.”

Price declared that the State Department “look(s) forward to offering this option to all routine passport applicants” by early 2022.

Passport Gender Focus

Now, we’re all for CompetentMulti-tasking is a common practice in organizations that have multiple tasks.

But this isn’t a competent State Department under President Biden, and they really need to channel all of their energy in bringing home Americans stranded in Afghanistan.

You remember them, don’t you, Secretary Antony Blinken?

For weeks on end, the State Department insisted that there were ‘only’ roughly 100 Americans left behind after Biden’s disastrous withdrawal in August.

In fact Price, now focused on gender ‘x’ passports, made that claim just 10 days ago.

“That range has been anywhere from below a 100 – right now it is somewhere in between 100 and 200…” he advised.

Perhaps in their minds, the number, like the gender of some folks, is ‘x.’

And they’re having a lot of trouble solving for x.

The State Department informed congressional staff last week that 363 Americans were still in Afghanistan and that 176 are willing to go.

It gets worse.

On Tuesday, Biden’s Under Secretary of Defense for Policy Colin Kahl told Congress there are 439 American citizens stranded in Afghanistan, 196 who are ready to depart.

This means that the number American citizens reported by the administration jumped by over 200 from their original claims, and by almost 80 in under a week.

How likely is it that the actual number of Taliban hostages rises to over 500 or even 1000?

Is it really important to have genderless passports?

Biden Lied

If Donald Trump was President, do you believe that all media outlets would stop covering Afghanistan’s situation? Not even one American.

Particularly if he pledged to not rest until they are safe.

“If there are American citizens left [past August 31] we are going to stay until we get them all out,” Biden said in an interview with ABC News interviewer George Stephanopoulos.

“The commitment holds to get everyone out that, in fact, we can get out and everyone who should get out,” he said.

According to previous statements, there are 196 Americans currently ready and waiting for Afghanistan. So, what’s the problem?

Is it because they don’t have their gender ‘x’ passports in order?

The State Department’s obsession with gender inclusivity isn’t a one-off either. Last week, they marked ‘International Pronouns Day’ with a tweet offering guidance on why people share their pronouns on social media.

The informational post explains that “sharing pronouns (is) a way of getting to know someone” and “avoids accidentally assuming an incorrect gender.”

They discuss the basic level pronoun assignments – ‘he/him/his,’ ‘she/her/hers’ – but also dabble into those who choose non-traditional pronouns such as ‘they/them/theirs.’

The State Department even makes mention of “pioneering” individuals who use “gender-neutral pronouns such as ze/zir/zirs.”

Gender X. Pronoun Ze. Now, the question is: Y?

To put it together, someone was paid by taxpayers. A group of officials working for the government tirelessly worked to make passports gender-friendly.

American citizens remain behind enemy lines in a hostile country while they wait.

To quote the comedian Sebastian Maniscalco, “Aren’t you embarrassed?”
