McCrory Spokesman Hits Back At Hypocritical NY Governor Cuomo

As we learned yesterday, NY Governor Cuomo banned non-essential travel to North Carolina for NY State employees. Of course, if he really had gumption, if he was really super upset, he’d ban all travel, because, really, why are state employees taking taxpayer funded trips that are non-essential? A spokesperson for Governor McCrory responded

(WRAL) A spokesman for North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory is criticizing New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo after he banned nonessential publicly funded travel to North Carolina after that state’s Legislature blocked anti-discrimination protections for gay, lesbian and transgender people.

McCrory spokesman Josh Ellis said Tuesday that Cuomo’s move shows “hypocrisy and demagoguery.” He questioned whether the Democrat would ask the Syracuse University basketball team to boycott the upcoming Final Four because it is hosted by Houston, where voters last year defeated a non-discrimination ordinance.

As a private university, Syracuse would not be subject to a state travel ban even if one existed.

Apparently, basketball would be considered “essential travel” in the minds of the WRAL employees, who are obviously on the side of letting gender confused people use the bathrooms of the opposite biological gender.

Ellis also noted that Cuomo last year visited Cuba, a country that he says has a “deplorable” human rights record.

The full press release reads

“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.”

Obviously, the part about Cuba is the primary focus, not an “also”, as portrayed by WRAL….say, does WRAL allow transgenders to use the opposite bathroom at their privately held company? Cuba is a nation with horrible human rights, yet, Cuomo visited the nation, supposedly to drum up business for NY. So far, that business is nowhere in sight.

Cuba does not allow same sex unions, per their constitution. They have no specific anti-discrimination laws for transgenders or any gays, lesbians, or bisexuals. Yet, Cuomo visited. Hypocrite.

(WNCN) Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin is banning all non-essential state travel to North Carolina in protest of a new state law preventing local governments from expanding protections for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people.

Seattle Mayor Ed Murray has also banned non-essential publicly funded travel to North Carolina in response to its legislation blocking anti-discrimination protections for gay, lesbian and transgender people.

Well, really, again, they shouldn’t be traveling on the public dime for anything other than very essential reasons. And, this is good, since Vermont has a major heroin problem, and has even been called America’s heroin capital. Seattle employees should stay there and work on ways to attract businesses who will hire employees, considering how many jobs have been lost in the wake of their minimum wage increase.

Governor McCroy released a video statement, part of which hits back at Attorney General Roy Cooper (a Democrat, running for governor) for saying he will not defend the law in court

“Some have called our state an embarrassment. The real embarrassment is politicians not publicly respecting each other’s positions on complex issues.

“Unfortunately, that has occurred when legislation was passed to protect men women and children when they use a public restroom, shower or locker-room. That is an expectation of privacy that must be honored and respected.

“Instead, North Carolina has been the target of a vicious, nation-wide smear campaign. Disregarding the facts, other politicians, from the White House to mayors and city council members and yes our Attorney General, have initiated and promoted conflict to advance their political agenda.  Even if it means defying the constitution and their oath of office.

Liberals do not care about privacy for Other People, they need to create a big deal out of tiny issues for political purposes. But, you know what? All these hyper-Leftists can stay in their hyper-leftist areas. We’d appreciate if you’d stop bringing your left wing insanity to our state.

    I got exactly the response I expected to my previous question concerning how the left would enforce allowing only the ‘transgendered’ to use the restrooms of their choice, and still enforce the exclusion of pervs: crickets.

    I’ll ask it again:

    So, according to the left, those males who decide that they are really female ought to be able to use the women’s restrooms and showers.

    OK, why should those males be the only ones so allowed? Why shouldn’t guys who just can’t help themselves, why can’t males who just want to either expose themselves to women — and underaged girls — or want to see women or underaged girls in the bathroom be able to do so? What difference, at this point, does it make?

    Let’s say that the left get their way, which, the courts being as stupid as they are, the left probably will. How will they propose the state enforce any legal distinctions between people who really are ‘transgender,’ and people who just want to perv? Will the ‘transgendered’ need state-issued identifications, or perhaps a special mark on their driver’s licenses, to use the women’s restrooms and showers legally, so that we can stop the pervs, or will law enforcement just have to take the word of any guy in there who defends himself by saying, “Hey, I’m really a girl”? That, after all, would be their stay out of jail card, and if a perv had a choice between making that claim or going to jail, he might well pick making that claim.

    I’d note that the left want to restrict people with no criminal records from exercising their Second Amendment rights, ’cause they want to protect the children, you know, and the left want to criminalize or somehow penalize hurtful speech, because it offends the Special Snowflakes™, and the left want to throw climate change deniers into jail, so they have no problems, no problems at all with restricting people’s individual rights, but you can bet your last euro that the J Boys wouldn’t agree to the ‘transgendered’ having to somehow register in advance to use the wrong public restroom.

    Dana the 2nd has always had restrictions. As a Constitutional “originalist” I have no problem with a well trained militia carrying single shot rifles and muskets. Large bore cannons, not so much. Mines and bombs even less.
    Which arms do you think should be restricted, ordo you think there should be no prohibitions on arms anywhere by anyone.

  3. Dana says:

    What part of “shall not be infringed” is unclear to you? If you believe that is impractical, then work to pass a constitutional amendment to change it.

    • John says:

      Do you consider it to be an infringement not to be able to carry your loaded guns into an airplane it to the RNP convention??
      Felons
      Crazy people ?
      Under 18?
      Drug and alcohol users?
      What arms should not be regulated?

  4. o0Nighthawk0o says:

    Dana asks a question about the subject of this article and the resident leftist ignores it and jumps on 2A instead. How about answering the question posed instead of trying to sidetrack the conversation?

    • John says:

      Nighthawks eat bugs please answer the question of why you chose to name yourself after a bug eater
      Are you a bug eater?

  5. john says:

    Hey Dana maybe third time will be the charm
    so ask again
    The NC Attorney General says he will not defend that law, calls it a “national disgrace” says that it is “unconstitutional”

    And it is a BIG TIME job killer. NC already is in the bottom third of states with unemployment rate
    CNN Money says that NC’s biggest trade show the 5 BILLION dollar furniture expo is being threatened because of this “bathroom” law. http://money.cnn.com/2016/03/28/news/economy/north-carolina-bathroom-bill-high-point/index.html?iid=EL

    Social conservative issues will force NC to become a more blue shade of purple because of this law. They are putting a gay person in the middle of their circular firing squad
    Of course believing in small government means believing in a genital check for all in any public bathroom
    This law is also a direct result of NC being one of the most heavily gerrymandered states in the USA
    3 out of the top 10 most gerrymandered are in NC and 8 out of top 10 were gerrymandered by Republicans
    That gerrymandering will be reduced when the SCOTUS is back at 9 members

  6. o0Nighthawk0o says:

    Still no real answer to the original question. Just crap about gerrymandering, unemployment and bugs. The workings of the leftist mind is both funny and sad.

  7. jl says:

    Liberals being hypocritical? Who would have thought that, except for everyone who’s not a liberal

  8. Jeffery says:

    What do you right-wing perverts imagine goes on in bathrooms?

    One of you volunteered you would now go into the women’s showers under false pretenses so you could get an erection and wave it around. Only an idiot right-winger would think that’s a clever idea.

    What do you right-wing perverts imagine goes on in bathrooms?

    Let’s say one you right-wing perverts has an eye for penises (not a far-fetched assumption). What current law keeps you from hanging out in the men’s room so you can sneak a peak at a delicious dick?

    I fully expect some right-wing pervert (e.g., James O’Queef) will strip and go into the girls shower at a state university claiming he’s transgender. As a society, we can deal with that issue when it occurs.

    Honest to gawd boys, is your fear of the law the only thing keeping you out of the girls showers at public high schools? Really?

    Is your desire to assault women and girls so deeply ingrained that a law is the only thing between you and the wives, sisters, moms and daughters?

    Do you really think a high school boy is going to start wearing dresses to school so that he can sneak a peek at boobs?

    nighthawk typed:

    The workings of the leftist mind is (sic) both funny and sad.

    That should be “workings… are”. Perhaps you spent too much time in dresses, trying to get into the girl’s shower and not enough time in English class.

  9. drowningpuppies says:

    The little guy who exaggerates often seems to worry a lot about transgenders and dicks.

  10. Jeffery says:

    That’s funny, it’s Teach posting about the new law in NC.

    Why don’t you put on your bitch costume and head back out to the kennel.

  11. david7134 says:

    In Europe, the situation is easily taken care of. There is only one restroom in many locations. Both men and women go to the same spot. There are individual stalls that are closed off and almost always an attendant that is receiving welfare and compelled to do the work. This limits women being accosted.

  12. drowningpuppies says:

    Touched a nerve there, huh little guy?

  13. Dana says:

    Translation of Jeffrey’s comment:

    No, I cannot think of a reason why only ‘transgendered’ males should be allowed into the women’s restrooms and showers, and even if I could, I cannot think of a way to regulate that conduct without trampling on the ‘rights’ of one out of 30,000 people!

    I would much rather normalize the mental illness of the ‘transgendered,’ so as not to hurt their precious little feelings, than in any way acknowledge the concerns of parents and conservatives and other normal people.

  14. o0Nighthawk0o says:

    Have to love someone that corrects someone else’s grammar and, at the same time, makes mistakes themselves.

    Jeffery said:

    you can sneak a peak (sic)

    That should be “peek”.

    Maybe you should have spent more time in English class than being warped by leftist ideology.

    We also don’t have to ‘imagine’ what can happen in public restrooms as there are plenty of stories, becoming more frequent, out there that illustrates our concerns. All you have to do is open your eyes and look.

  15. Jeffery says:

    Ruh roh! It’s getting worser and worser for NC.

    http://hrc-assets.s3-website-us-east-1.amazonaws.com//files/assets/resources/NC_CEO_Letter_(3).pdf

    When Pfizer, Bank of America, American Airlines etc have aligned against you, your position is in trouble.

    Will McCrory fold before a federal judge guts the law? Or is it in his political interest to go down with the ship and blame it all on liberal “law-making” judges?
