If I were an NBA fan, which I’m not, I’d be boycotting them right about now. The National Basketball Association was going to host the 2017 All-Star Game in Charlotte, North Carolina. That is until they went bat-crap crazy with political correctness. NBA Commissioner Adam Silver is now saying they will take the game to another state to protest North Carolina’s recently-passed law requiring people to use the bathroom of the sex they actually are. You know, the one you are designated as on your birth certificate. According to Silver, that’s “discrimination” against transgender Americans.
From The Federalist Papers Project:
The law also bars cities from expanding nondiscrimination policies to include sexuality and gender identity, which have been used in other states to punish Christians who subscribe to religious teaching on sexuality and marriage.
Proponents of the legislation said it is aimed at protecting women and children from predatory men, who could claim to identify as women in order to gain entry to intimate facilities.
The basketball league joined a coalition of other blue chip corporations, largely based in Silicon Valley, condemning the law, including Facebook, Google and Apple. The corporations said HB2 would imperil their ability to do business in the state moving forward.
Last month, Silver threatened the state… he stated: “[O]ne of the core principles, underlying principles of this league is diversity and inclusion.” What about protecting women and children from sexual predators? Doesn’t that count for anything anymore? How about simple morality? Silver told North Carolina to flatly change their law or the NBA would exit stage way left. Republican Governor Pat McCrory has already issued an executive order allowing private businesses to permit transgender bathrooms, but that’s not good enough for these moonbats. Extortion abounds and frankly, I’d tell them to stuff it.
“I think people understand that’s one of our values. It was a value built from the ground floor up in this league long before I ever got involved in it,” Silver continued, “and I’m sort of carrying the mantle now. But I know I speak on behalf of our owners, our teams and our players.” Do tell… I highly doubt that. I hope this costs them millions of dollars and a whole bunch of fans.
Transgenders are such a small minority that this whole stance is simply insane. It’s beyond ridiculous. We’ve already seen case after case of men pretending to be transgender to get into bathrooms and locker rooms to video little girls and women. Females of all ages have also been molested and raped since this started, but you hear no outcry over that. No… they are all twisted up over confused men who don’t know what is in their sock drawer. This is just sick.
