Political correctness has simply gone too far in America. It has somehow become a “civil rights” issue to allow confused men dressed as women (and vice-versa) to use whatever bathroom or locker room they prefer.
North Carolina lawmakers see the problem. In an effort to restore sanity to the situation, North Carolina lawmakers approved a bill that would allow local governments to refuse to validate such delusions and force people to use the correct facilities.
Predictably, the left has responded in hysterical fashion and have maintained that this simple law, signed by the governor, is a form of discrimination and that punishing the Tar Heel State is of the utmost importance to preserving social justice.
While much of the left pats themselves on the back for “remedying” the supposedly discriminatory demands that people use the correct bathrooms, they neglect to note a simple fact: while the “anything goes” moral relativism of the left might delight a person with gender identity confusion, policies which allow them to use whatever facilities they choose condemn the rest of the 99% of the population to uncomfortableness.
Yay! Victory for the allegedly oppressed by oppressing others!
In response, liberal politicians have responded in a mature fashion and voiced their disapproval of the law, but respected the right for states to make their own decision.
Just kidding… they rattled the sabers of a leftist crusade and threw a fit in a manner that has become all-too-predictable.
North Carolina’s Attorney General, Roy Cooper, has declared that he will not defend the law which he claims is discriminatory. The Attorney General is the highest-ranking law enforcement official in the state with the exception of the governor, Republican Pat McCrory. He is duty-bound to enforce the laws passed by the legislature. However, while the rest of us would be fired if he or she refused to do their job, the Democrat Attorney General is being celebrated by the left for his willingness to disregard laws he does not like.
Cooper called the law “a national embarrassment” and has been waging a grandstanding campaign against the law since its passage. Not-so-coincidentally, Cooper is running against the Republican governor in November.
North Carolina Senate President Pro Tempore Phil Berger demanded Cooper’s resignation, claiming that Cooper’s “zeal for pandering for the extreme left’s money and agenda in his race for governor is making it impossible for him to fulfill his duties.”
Cooper is not the only one to politically grandstand on this issue. This week, New York’s Governor, Democrat Andrew Cuomo, banned non-essential government travel to North Carolina in protest of the law that merely keeps boys in boys’ rooms and girls in girls’ rooms.
He ordered all agencies to “immediately review” the travel requests and smugly claimed, “As long as there is a law in North Carolina that creates the grounds for discrimination against LGBT people, I am barring non-essential state travel to that state.”
So, Cuomo is a crusader for the downtrodden, right? A true believer in human dignity and equality?
If he were, Cuomo never would have gone to Cuba. Last year, the liberal governor traveled to the communist dictatorship that maintains a horrid record of human rights abuses that include political persecution, totalitarian restriction of speech, and imprisonment, torture and execution for political dissidents.
But North Carolina not letting a confused man pee next to female coworkers, that seems to really rile Cuomo’s sense of justice.
This kind of hypocrisy is common for liberals. Some of the most-vocal LGBT activists target for harassment any public figure who dares to cite his or her belief in traditional marriage, but the homosexual community all-but ignores the routine murder and torture of homosexuals in the Middle East.
The new-age “feminists” who pretend that not buying Sandra Fluke her birth control amounts to a “Republican War on Women” are the same ones who ignore institutional misogyny in the Middle East and preach for acceptance of Muslim refugees as Europe deals with a flood of rapes and other sexual assaults committed by the Muslim refugees allowed access to Europe.
To the left, “persecution” includes not baking a wedding cake for a homosexual wedding, but summary executions and repressive communist regimes are both “chic” and worthy of embrace.
