I understand wanting to clear house for a new administration, but some appointments warrant a different approach.
Biden, however, just wants anyone and anything to do with Trump gone.
He may have just crossed a line that gives far more insight to his agenda than his hate for Trump, though.
The latest firing by Biden of a Trump appointee is Down Syndrome advocate Kurt Kondrich.
Kondrich and his daughter, Chloe (who has Down Syndrome), have helped promote bipartisan legislation regarding parents with Down Syndrome children.
In November 2020, Kondrich was appointed to the Presidential Commission for Persons with Disabilities by Trump.
Today, reports surfaced that Biden has removed him from this council…
First, Biden is breaking precedent by removing Trump appointees to councils such as this.
In most cases, a new president will allow those appointed to fulfill their terms.
One could possibly make a case to support Biden terminating people like Sean Spicer and Kelly Conway, individuals that were deeply entrenched in Trump’s presidency, but this is just going too far.
Something else to consider is the fight Democrats are now putting up regarding abortion, with Down Syndrome unborn at the top of the list for possible abortions.
Is Biden making a bigger statement here by removing the father of a Down Syndrome child, or is this just another effort to remove anything Trump from his administration?
Kondrich, after the firing, stated, “I have always said that our disability advocacy was completely bipartisan and focused on defending and protecting people with disabilities from conception to natural death.
“We advocate for funding support and services that allow people with disabilities to be fully included in society in a safe environment.”
He later stated, “Identifying, targeting and terminating a human being who receives a prenatal Down syndrome diagnosis because they don’t meet the misguided cultural mandate for unattainable perfection represents the ultimate, extreme form of discrimination, prejudice, profiling, bigotry, intolerance, exclusion and hatred, and it is something none of us should accept or tolerate.”
That last statement is what makes me think his firing goes far deeper than just his connection to Trump.
Biden simply does not want someone pushing a pro-life stance in his White House, so Kondrich had to go.
