The ruling class elites will stop at nothing to force their woke extremist agenda into law.
Even when the people overwhelmingly reject their nonsense they still think they can force it down our throats.
But this RINO Governor got hit with a major reality check after he vetoed one anti-woke bill that would’ve protected children.
Ohio RINO Governor Mike DeWine tried to claim a sort of middle ground, but all he’s managed to do is upset both sides of a contentious issue.
The Ohio state legislature drafted the Save Women’s Sports Act and the SAFE (Saving Adolescents From Experimentation) Act.
This legislation bans transgender hormone and surgical treatments for minor children, and prevents biological males who claim to be women from being allowed to compete in women’s sports.
DeWine uses the language of the left to justify siding with radicals
Governor DeWine vetoed the bill two weeks ago, using favored rhetoric of the Left.
“Ultimately, I believe this is about protecting human life,” DeWine claimed. “Many parents have told me that their child would not have survived, would be dead today. They would have taken their life when they were teenagers.”
Of course, he offered no evidence, data, or specific examples to back up those claims.
Curiously, it was later discovered that DeWine received donations from donors who provided transgender medical services or opposed efforts to ban the procedures for minors.
According to The Daily Caller, Governor DeWine received $40,300 from the Ohio Children’s Hospital Association (OCHA), Cincinnati Children’s Hospital, Nationwide Children’s Hospital, and ProMedica Children’s Hospital, all of whom profit significantly from subjecting children to dangerous sex change operations and hormone therapy.
Cincinnati Children’s Hospital has a “transgender health center” that allows patients as young as five years old to receive puberty blockers and cross-sex hormones, according to the hospital’s website.
The state House voted 65-28 to override DeWine on Wednesday.
In response to the House’s override, DeWine walked his position back to a degree.
“The sports issue affects only a minute number of people,” DeWine said. “It was not the reason that I vetoed the bill. So I think, by combining those two, a lot of members, at least members I talked to this weekend, had latched on to the issue of sports they felt very strongly about.”
Governor DeWine later issued an executive order that banned transgender surgeries on minor children, but didn’t act to stop dangerous hormonal treatments or to protect girls’ sports.

An additional override to DeWine’s veto in the Senate is a strong possibility
The bill was sponsored by Ohio Republican state Rep. Gary Click.
In a statement after Wednesday’s vote to override DeWine’s veto, Click said, “Today marks yet another victory for women and children in Ohio. It is hard to fathom that we live in a society that would tell children that they need drugs and scalpels to live their authentic lives.”
The measure now heads to the Senate where it needs 20 votes to override DeWine’s veto.
The bill previously passed with 24 votes in the chamber.
If the Senate also passes the override measure, the bill would go into effect 90 days after the final vote.
