Typical Liberal Hypocrits
From Todd Starnes and Fox News:
PayPal, the website known for processing online payments, believes grown men have a constitutional right to use the same bathrooms as little girls.
So when North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory signed a bill that banned people from using bathrooms not assigned to their birth sex, PayPal became enraged and retaliated.
They canceled plans to open a new operations center in Charlotte – a facility that would’ve employed more than 400 workers.
“The new law perpetuates discrimination and it violates the values and principles that are at the core of PayPal’s mission and culture,” CEO Dan Schulman wrote in a memorandum on the company’s website.
That’s what a corporate bully looks like, folks. Conform to the demands of radical cultural militants or pay the price.
“It is corporate blackmail,” Lt. Gov. Dan Forest told me.
But PayPal is not just a big business bully – they are also hypocrites.
“PayPal does business in 25 countries where homosexual behavior is illegal, including five where the penalty is death,” NC Rep. Robert Pittenger wrote on Facebook. “Yet, they object to the North Carolina legislature overturning a misguided ordinance about letting men into the women’s bathroom?”
Yes, they do, congressman.
“Perhaps PayPal would like to try and clarify this seemingly very hypocritical position,” he suggested.
I asked PayPal to explain why they were doing business in countries that slaughter gay people – but they did not return my calls or emails.
In Georgia, Mississippi, Arkansas and Indiana – religious liberty bills have come under attack from a number of Fortune 500 companies – from Coca-Cola and Delta Airlines to UPS and Marriott Hotels.
But the American Family Association says what’s shocking is that all of those companies opposing religious liberty in the name of LGBT rights are operating in countries where gays are facing fines and imprisonment.
So, why do liberals give breaks to countries and world leaders who have a huge hatred of homosexuals and homosexuality?
Why do these liberal hypocrites do business with these countries but refuse to do business in North Carolina, who basically said that perverted men may not go in the same bathroom as young girls/women?
None of these companies mentioned, like Pepsi, PayPal,
