“H.B. 142 is a wolf in sheep’s clothing, crafted to keep discrimination intact, but sporting a new look.”
– ACLU of North Carolina
The Ideological Left is so focused on imaginary micro-aggressions and narrow narratives that they are unable to see their own hypocrisy when it comes to the latest HB2/HB142 lawsuit amendment request.
North Carolinians were informed this morning that the ACLU of North Carolina and Lambda Legal’s HB2 lawsuit would now be expanded to include HB 142, which was passed earlier this year by Republican legislators and Democrat governor Roy Cooper.
In today’s press conference, the ACLU made sure to emphasize their keen awareness of our state’s anti-LGBT bathroom discrimination and would not stand for it. What exactly won’t the ACLU stand for? Empirical scientific evidence being employed for determining which state-funded bathroom one ought to use? That is now a legitimate form of discrimination?
Their regular attempts to paint legislators and private citizens that side with biology as bigoted plays well with their groupies, but it does not find a home among those that refuse to be swayed by baseless name-calling and identity politics. Laws should always square with the nature of reality and natural law, striving for objectivity. For legislation to do otherwise only invites pandering to the trendy preferences of the present, rather than long-term liberty and justice for all.
HB 142’s goal was to neutralize the bathroom ordeal that was instigated by the Charlotte City Council’s attempt to create a political storm that put the transgender issue front and center. Per the usual, the Ideological Left fails to trace the history of this entire debacle to this rogue city council decision, preferring to demonize state lawmakers that were forced to respond to the Charlotte council’s overreach.
Instead of the ACLU’s insistence on playing the same tired tune, maybe it’s time we allow private businesses to determine whether or not they’ll provide gender neutral bathrooms and allow tax-payer funds to be used towards issues that are anchored to empirical scientific evidence rather than identity politics.
