Kelly Schools Psaki: Debunking the ‘GOP Anti-Trans Agenda’ Fallacy


Renowned talk show host Megyn Kelly serves up a hefty dose of reality to former White House Press Secretary and current MSNBC host Jen Psaki, debunking her controversial claim that Republican operatives were coercing Muslims to oppose transgender rights.

On her recent show, Psaki suggested that the uproar among Muslim parents against a Maryland school board’s policies was a calculated ploy by conservatives. According to Psaki, this alleged strategy is an echo of former President Richard Nixon’s divisive Southern Strategy, now targeting Muslim Americans and trans people.

Psaki went so far as to assert that “The GOP is trying to recruit Muslim Americans, a community that makes up less than 2 percent of the U.S. population, against another tiny, marginalized group of Americans, transgender people.”

Kelly, known for her no-nonsense approach, swiftly dismantled Psaki’s unfounded allegations in a video posted on YouTube. She poked fun at Psaki’s lackluster show ratings before addressing the matter at hand: “Whitey is at it again! It’s the whites trying to pit the loving Muslims who have always been pro-LGBTQ against the poor trans people.”

Kelly rightly pointed out that Psaki’s claim inherently diminishes the Muslim-American community, implying they are unable to form their own opinions and beliefs.

Speaking on the Maryland protest, Kelly brings light to the real issue. Parents have taken time out of their busy schedules to protest against a school board decision that prevents them from opting their children out of LGBTQ-related lessons that they find inappropriate. Kelly explains that Maryland state law doesn’t allow the opt-out provision unless it’s a specific unit on sex ed. This particular content, however, is slyly incorporated under the English language arts curriculum.

“These parents think it’s inappropriately sexual and has messages with which they do not agree when it comes to trans people,” she said. The parents’ stance is clear: they are not insisting on shutting down the lesson plan, but they demand the right to opt their children out, a right the school board denies.

Despite the compelling arguments made by the parents, the mainstream media, including MSNBC, deflects from the real issue. Instead of addressing the legitimate concerns of parents, they focus on vilifying ‘the white man.’

Edward Ahmed Mitchell, the national deputy director at the Council for American-Islamic Relations, also chimed in, emphasizing that Muslim parents are independent thinkers and not political puppets. Mitchell suggests liberal commentators need to face the reality that Muslims are capable of forming their own opinions, rather than attributing their actions to alleged political manipulation.

In the end, Megyn Kelly’s response illustrates a vital point: Conservative values respect the right of parents to make informed decisions about their children’s education. Conflating parental rights with bigotry not only detracts from the substantive debate, but it also unfairly labels those who advocate for such rights.
