California 'Fights Homophobia' by Banning State Travel to Texas...
California keeps harassing the rest of the country with its smug, liberal policies (see BUNCH OF LOSERS: Wealthy Californians Shoveled Trucks of Cash Into Special GA Election...). We'd all like it to stop, so here's hoping #CalExit comes sooner rather than later. This week Cali's holier than thou attitude reached fever pitch. In the gayish spirit of Pride Month, they're officially banning state travel to certain states who commit the sin of... Homophobia. Hold your laughter, bigot. This is serious.
California Attorney General Xavier Becerra (D) will bar state employees from business trips to four states after those states passed measures limiting the rights of LGBT people.
The new restrictions prohibit state-funded or state-sponsored travel to Texas, Alabama, Kentucky and South Dakota...
California's Democrat-dominated legislature passed a measure last year barring state-funded travel to states that allow dicrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity. Already, the law has blocked employee travel to four other states - Kansas, Mississippi, North Carolina and Tennessee.
So the measure itself isn't exactly new. Someone dry heaved this terrible idea up sometime last year, but it's still actively pointing fingers and naming names. Texas and co are simply the latest offenders at hand. To be punished by restricting California government nutjobs from patronizing their state? Methinks Texas isn't crying rivers of tears.
Here's the state Attorney General's addled attempt at reasoning...
"While the California [Department of Justice] works to protect the rights of all our people, discriminatory laws in any part of our country send all of us several steps back," Becerra said in a statement. "That's why when California said we would not tolerate discrimination against LGBTQ members of our community, we meant it."
Soooo overly dramatic. But such drama is to be expected from the flaming home of the gays (see PROGRESS: California Public Schools Forced to Teach 2nd Graders About LGBT). The state is seeking to make a statement to the rest of the nation: conform or be vilified. Where "vilified" means we take our pompous, overly inflated rainbow-colored beach ball back to our heavily taxed state. How
mature progressive of them.
Again, one must wonder if the state of Texas is mourning this great loss. Or if they're secretly high-fiving each other over barbecue, fewer state regulations, and lower costs of living.
California can consider their message received loud and clear, flamboyant lisp included.
