The Left didn’t expect this one big move by Rand Paul.
They were trying to have biological men compete with women in sports.
But then Rand Paul came out swinging and backed the Left into a corner.
The Left has been taking the transgender movement way too far. They are trying to infiltrate women’s sports with biological men.
The most famous example in recent years is a swimmer who goes by the name of Lia Thomas. This swimmer for the University of Pennsylvania was a biological male who began identifying as a girl and started crushing females in swim competitions in the Ivy League and beyond.
Of course, these swim competitions were not fair fights. Thomas was bigger and stronger than the girls in the competition.
One of the swimmers who suffered as a result of this unfairness was Riley Gaines, a swimmer for the University of Kentucky.
Gaines lost to Thomas in a national match, even though she was one of the best swimmers in the entire country.
But unlike many who decided to stay silent, Gaines spoke up against this injustice.
She may have thought that she’d be going it alone by doing so. After all, the media does not treat people very well who don’t toe the line when it comes to transgender issues.
But one man came out swinging for her – her very own home state Senator, Rand Paul.
Now, Gaines is appearing in a major new television ad for Rand Paul.
According to the Washington Examiner, “Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) teamed up with former University of Kentucky swimmer Riley Gaines in a new campaign ad taking aim at transgender athletes competing in women’s sports.”
“The 30-second spot, which is slated to air digitally and on television, features Gaines, who gained attention for speaking out on the issue after being defeated in a national match by transgender swimmer Lia Thomas, asserting she plans to vote for Paul and applauding him for his support on the issue.”
Gaines is not happy about the way the NCAA treated her, but she is channeling that into something positive, standing up for girls nationwide.
In the ad, she says “I trained from an early age, giving it my all to achieve my dream. And I accomplished it, becoming a 12-time All-American swimmer at the University of Kentucky. But for girls across America, that dream is being taken away by men competing in women’s sports. Sadly, few stood up for me, but Rand Paul is not afraid to fight for fairness for women and girls, and that’s why I’m supporting him.”
In a separate interview, Gaines went on to say, “When Sen. Paul made it apparent that he was willing to stand up for us, that’s very easily something I decided I wanted to align myself with.”
The Left claimed for a long time to stand up for women, but it’s clear that they have abandoned that and moved on to more niche identity politics issues.
But fortunately there are leaders like Rand Paul fighting back against the harm that they are doing to girls nationwide.
