New York governor Andrew Cuomo got lots of news coverage yesterday for his directive restricting state travel to North Carolina on account of the law passed last week that overrides local “non-discrimination” pro-choice bathroom ordinances. If I lived in North Carolina I’d be tempted to send Cuomo a big thank you note for cutting down the number of New York government employees coming to NC, since their visits cannot be good in the first place.
But a better response is the short statement put out by North Carolina governor Pat McCrory:
“Syracuse is playing in the Final Four in Houston where voters overwhelmingly rejected a nearly identical bathroom ordinance that was also rejected by the state of North Carolina,” said Governor McCrory Communications Director Josh Ellis. “Is Governor Cuomo going to ask the Syracuse team to boycott the game in Houston? It’s total hypocrisy and demagoguery if the governor does not, considering he also visited Cuba, a communist country with a deplorable record of human rights violations.”
Boom! Incidentally, eight black Democrats in the NC legislature voted in favor of the bill that has Cuomo upset. Are those black Democrats, along with the multi-racial Houston majority that voted to override their pro-choice bathroom ordinance, also bigots?
Here is one issue where I really wish Donald Trump would show up and comment. Make bathrooms great again!
