We are transgender Republicans. The Kansas GOP is betraying its legacy of freedom

This is a disgrace ,how dare they show this disgusting prejudice Transgender Republicans know the Kansas GOP is wrong | The Kansas City Star
The Republican Party owes its very existence to the state of Kansas. While not the birthplace of the GOP, Kansas’ own founding inspired the founding of the party by Alvan Bovay and other abolitionists on March 20, 1854 in Ripon, Wisconsin, after the Democratic Party’s Stephen Douglas proposed the controversial, pro-slavery Kansas-Nebraska Act. Those first Republicans held beliefs rooted in the ideals of personal liberty, freedom and combating the suppression of a minority across our country.

That Replublican Party is long gone. Their true colors came out in the 1950’s and 1960’s. They were not happy with equal rights movement and civil rights legislation. Then came Nixon’s 1968 strategy. He successfully reoriented the Republican Party against equal rights legislation and liberty. The “Party of Lincoln” has not been recognized by today’s current Republican Party since the 60’s. You are looking to relocate something that no longer exists.

Throw your liberal tizm fit all you want. Trump might not be the candidate we were looking for, but he still smashed Hillary!

We'll be over here, still partying while you libs are still denying the fact you lost because most of America can't stand your silly beliefs.

Messrs. Evans and Williams misrepresent the origins of the Republican Party.

The Republican Party was not founded merely to “combat the suppression of a minority.” It was established specifically to combat a system of institutionalized slavery. (Evans and Williams’ confusion on this point could hardly be more indicative of our present-day habit of converting everything that is unpleasant or irksome into something akin to forced labor and forced breeding.) It is true that some of the so-called Radical Republicans were just as pleased to use the antislavery amendments as a vehicle for extending citizenship to other nonwhite or non-Anglo groups, but this was not the intent of the Republican Party generally speaking. Many antislavery whites and blacks argued that black Americans represented a unique category of person eligible for receiving the privilege of citizenship, not first and foremost because they had been treated unjustly—hence, the African repatriation movement —but because, to quote Booker T. Washington, “We went into slavery pagans; we came out Christians. We went into slavery without a language; we came out speaking the proud Anglo-Saxon tongue.”

Unlike the Chinese, who many Republicans viewed as “pagan imperialists,” blacks assimilated several of the definitive traits that would make their successful integration into the American regime far more likely. Granted, the optimism Republicans expressed at this idea varied greatly; but, given the contemporary state of affairs it was almost miraculous that any body of politicians was willing to make such a distinction between a horde of former slaves and the otherwise industrious Chinese.

If any nineteenth-century political thought could accommodate Evans and Williams’ defense of transgenderism it would have to be something like J. S. Mill’s concept of liberty, in which all individual acts of willed behavior—no matter how stupid or offensive—are morally permissible insofar as they do not cause unsolicited harm to others. This, however, was not the view of most nineteenth-century Republicans.
