...And, SURPRISE!, some of them are actually politicians.
Lt. Governor Dan Forest releases statement on NBA's decision to relocate the 2017 All-Star Game:
What is happening here is so much bigger than a basketball game. A sovereign state is being blackmailed by a private business (NBA) who is being threatened by a national LGBT lobbying effort, all to force North Carolina to open female restrooms, showers and locker rooms up to men. All of this was done under the guise of "inclusiveness" and other politically correct buzzwords. But the reality is that had we not blocked the Charlotte Bathroom Ordinance from going into effect, sex offenders and pedophiles would have had full access to our women and children in bathrooms around the state. I enjoy the NBA and wanted them to hold the All-Star game in Charlotte but if that game comes with strings attached, strings that would expose women and children to danger, molestation, assault and voyeurism, then no thank you. Take your business elsewhere, and I have no apologies about saying that and never will. The NBA knows the economic hit North Carolina will take from this decision. I wish the NBA would likewise acknowledge the pain, sorrow and devastation a child or woman feels when they are exploited. We will never value a dollar over a woman's or child's safety and security.Wow! Hillary talks about her concern for protecting women while she enables Bill's rape and molestation. Here's a politico who really cares. Three cheers for North Carolina. We're going to make a tourist plan to visit the state. If you've never been to Biltmore, the Vanderbilt estate, we highly recommend it. The day we left, we were already talking about going back.
Oh, and not everyone affiliated with the NBA is happy about the league's cowardly decisions. Hornets co-owner, Felix Sabates put the blame exactly where it belongs -- on the Charlotte Mayor and the league. Here's his statement.
I'm writing a letter to the Lt. Governor to thank him for his statement and to thank him for standing up for the rights of women and children. Want to join me?
