During a Tuesday appearance on Newsmax TV's "National Report," U.S. Sen. Tommy Tuberville (R-Auburn) discussed the Protection of Women in Olympic and Amateur Sports Act, which would prohibit any governing body recognized by the U.S. Olympic Committee from allowing men to compete in any athletic event intended for females.
The former Auburn football coach ripped the Democratic Party for being "totally against gender" and wanting women "to be extinct" by allowing biological males to participate in sports with biological females. He said allowing a man to box against a woman, which is now permitted if certain requirements are met, would be a "total disaster."
"Well, I never thought I'd be talking about this being a coach of 40 years of being part of Title IX where, basically it's probably the best law ever come up with up here in Washington, D C. It made it equal for men and women to have their own sports to be able to compete and learn the things that you learn in life and growing up and also be able to compete and, some, making money. But of course, the Democratic Party is totally against gender. They do not like women. They want women to be extinct, and now they're getting into athletics to make sure that hey, let's don't let women learn from sports. Let's attack them by letting biological men compete against them. And as you said, I made a bill last week, and we're pushing it that basically says in there even in the Olympics, you cannot allow men to compete against women. They are now making it legal in the Olympics for men to be able to box against women. Now, you want to talk about a disaster. This is going to be a total disaster."
"And again, this is all about the Democrats - no common sense, no thought about the future for anybody other than themselves and the attack on women," he added. "It's against the law of what you're doing. They know it, but they're going to continue to push it because they think that this will transition our country into something that it's never been."
