Star Parker: Equality Act Is Cultural Suicide Because Birthrates And Fertility Rates Are Now At Record Lows

The latest from right wing bloviator Star Parker:

The House Judiciary Committee has voted out the Equality Act of 2019 (H.R.5). It now heads for a vote on the House floor with 240 co-sponsors, which means its passage is virtually certain. A bizarre list of behaviors will become legally protected and enshrined in a new America that will be the total antithesis of the ideals of liberty envisioned by its founders.

The U.S. birthrate is the lowest it has been in 30 years. The general fertility rate, the number of births per 1,000 women ages 15 to 44, dropped 3 percent from 2016 to 2017, to a record low. The CDC also reports a 33-percent increase in the rate of suicide from 1999 to 2017.

The culture of meaninglessness, driving perverse legislation such as the Equality Act of 2019, will destroy us. We must vigilantly fight to prevent it from passing into law, as we recall the words of historian Arnold Toynbee: “An autopsy of history would show that all great nations commit suicide.”

In her most recent appearances on JMG, Parker called for abolishing the minimum wage, accused people on food stamps of spending their days watching porn, and claimed that the “B” in LGBT stands for bestiality.

Perhaps most infamously, she has partly blamed Parkland students for their own deaths, saying that they should have been nicer to the gunman.
