‘We’ll see you in court and we will win’: Gov. Kristi Noem has fierce fighting words for Biden

Gov. Kristi Noem has made it clear that she has no interest in playing nice with the Biden administration.

South Dakota’s no-nonsense governor just tweeted a statement, with an accompanying video, that addresses Biden’s attempts to force the radical trans agenda on conservative states like her own.

“Joe Biden has threatened to take away children’s school lunch money to pursue his radical agenda,” she wrote. “He’s targeting states like ours that make it clear biological men do NOT belong in girls’ bathrooms and sports. If you act on this, Joe, we’ll see you in court and we will win.”

Earlier this year, Noem signed SB 46, a piece of legislation that effectively prohibits so-called “transgender women”—i.e., those born as men but who have since transitioned to become “women”—from competing in women’s and girls’ sports. The law is set to go into effect on July 1, and it makes South Dakota one of twelve states to have enacted such legislation. The passage of the law was greatly helped by the national controversy surrounding the imposing figure of college swimmer Lia Thomas, the first openly transgender athlete to win an NCAA Division I national championship. The image of an obviously male athlete competing with and soundly thrashing female athletes was, needless to say, not a great look.

Noem’s tweet also included a video of the governor, in which she issued her challenge directly to Joe Biden.

“President Joe Biden,” she explained in the video, “is using the school lunch program to push his radical left-wing agenda. He believes that biological boys should share the same bathrooms and showers as biological girls. He also thinks that boys should be allowed to compete on girls’ sports teams. So, he’s threatening to use the national school lunch program to bully states into falling in line. And if we don’t, he’s going to take food off of our kids’ plates.”

The school nutrition programs are supposed to be neutral programs, and not a weapon of political coercion. Noem then reminded Biden that he has more important issues to deal with and that he should concentrate on those rather than bullying states like South Dakota.

“With all the problems that are facing America today,” Noem continued,” from the border to crime, to inflation, and gas prices—President Biden should be focusing on solutions for those problems.

“I have a message for President Biden: if you do this, if you take food away from our children, literally off their plates, unless we allow boys to compete in girls’ sports in South Dakota, I will immediately file suit to protect our kids. We’ve beaten you in court before, and we’ll do it again.”

The governor’s got a point. South Dakota has either directly sued or participated in several lawsuits against Biden’s administration, over everything from canceling fireworks displays at Mt. Rushmore, to joining with eleven other states in a lawsuit to halt Biden’s COVID vaccine mandates.

Joe Biden is messing with the wrong governor.
