For weeks now we’ve discussed the transgender issue; and it’s widely known that many celebrities, corporations and politicians have chosen to boycott North Carolina after it passed the HB2 Bill. Naturally, we all knew it was just a matter of time before Obama would stick his dirty little nose in the mix. That time has come.
Just last week, I wrote an article where Obama and his administration considered this topic as not just a right of equality but that they (U.S. Federal Government) will approach the topic as a Civil Rights violation. In doing so they have set demands and are holding NC hostage..but what didn’t expect was NC’s response.
In a recent letter addressed to Gov. Pat McCrory(NC) the Department of Justice has threatened to withhold millions of dollars of Federal funding to North Carolina’s Education System if the recent HB-2 Bill isn’t overturned. This is simply a bullying tactic by the Obama administration in an effort to once again show that the federal government cares nothing about a states rights and that on a Federal level they could care less about the ramifications that this would impose on its citizens. North Carolina has already suffered an economic impact loss of an estimated $500 million as a result of the new law from pulled corporate contracts and potential tourism income. So now Obama has decided that he might as well kick a state in the gut while it’s already down. But this time he has chosen to not just allow it to affect businesses but the states children as well. Currently in the 2015-2016 school year NC has received $861 million dollars in federal funding.
“This is no longer just a North Carolina issue,” McCrory said on Wednesday. “This impacts every state, every university, and almost every employee in the United States of America.”
“At the hands of his henchmen in the U.S. Department of Justice, King Obama has delivered his message of intimidation to the state of North Carolina,” executive director Mark Creech said on Facebook. “The Great Pontiff of Political Correctness holds the educational futures of our state’s children hostage, while dangling the money bags of federal funds over their heads, demanding in exchange North Carolina bow to the madness of obliterating male and female distinctions.”
In the letter from the D.O.J., Gov. McCrory and the rest of the Tar Heel State are in violation of the federal law under Title VII of the U.S. Civil Rights Act, which prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex. It also states that NC has until Monday, May 9th of 2016 to overturn the new law or it will be subjected to the cut of federal funding for its education department.
Little did they know that NC plans on standing firm on its decision and the response is a spit in the face at the federal government. State House Speaker Tim Moore told reporters Thursday, “That deadline will come and go. We don’t ever want to lose any money, but we’re not going to get bullied by the Obama administration to take action prior to Monday’s date. That’s not how this works.”
“To use our children and their educational futures as pawns to advance an agenda that will ultimately open those same children up to exploitation at the hands of sexual predators is by far, the sickest example of the depths the Obama Administration will stoop to ‘fundamentally transform our nation.'”-Lt. Governor Dan Forest(NC)
As a resident of NC I couldn’t be prouder and agree with the State’s response. Obama and his minions can kiss our Arses because myself as well as others have no problem homeschooling our children if it gets to that point.
If it means that protecting our families from potential predators costs us education funding, then so be it. Living in a state which values its citizens’ public safety over federal intervention is a state that I have no problem living in. I say weed out the freaks and the hell with the federal government as NC fights this battle.
We shall wait and see how Obama will react to our states immediate response of ,“We will take no action by Monday.” Its about time local governments stood up for what they believe in.
