North Carolina Lawmaker Looks To Investigate NCAA, ACC Over HB2

Hmm, now, this is an interesting turn of events. Let’s not forget that the NCAA, like many, many companies, held tournaments in Houston, Tx, which has a similar bill for the city when it comes to the gender confused. Let’s also not forget that the NCAA, ACC, and all sorts of companies, for all their caterwauling, refused to have their own policies which would allow the gender confused to use whichever bathroom they want at venues and offices. Consider, if you were at the ACC finals, and went into the opposite gender bathroom and got caught, you could be arrested and fined. This goes for every NCAA venue to be used during March Madness. If they cared so much, why not use cities like San Francisco and New York City, which have ordinances about letting the gender confused legally invade the privacy of the opposite biological gender? Anyhow

(WNCN) On Selection Sunday, a North Carolina lawmaker announced his plans to file a bill aimed at the NCAA and the ACC.

Representative Mark Brody (R-Monroe) wants to investigate if the two organizations violated their tax-exempt status by engaging in political or lobbying activities. This bill comes after the two organizations moved championship games from North Carolina because of House Bill 2.

In a Facebook post he wrote

There comes a time when the citizens of North Carolina need to stand up and say “Enough of this foolishness”!
Monday I will file the Athletic Association Accountability Act. It is an act to determine whether the NCAA and the ACC have violated their Tax-Exempt status by engaging in political or lobbying activities.
Specifically, the NCAA and the ACC have allegedly engaged in excessive lobbying activities that exceeded their respective charters by using economic retaliation against NC for the purpose of forcing the General Assembly to adopt social legislation that is not connected to their core mission.
I believe the NCAA and the ACC have stepped out of bounds and, to the best of my ability, will never allow the General Assembly to relinquish its legislative authority over the internal affairs of the State or succumb to economic extortion to and from either the NCAA or the ACC.

    So government should dictate where sports conferences and the NCAA hold their meetings and tournaments? Remember when Republicans supported freedom? Nah, me either.

  2. Spartacus says:

    You missed the point by a long mile! The lawmaker intends to introduce legislation that will investigate the NCAA and ACC for violating their tax exempt status by “engaging in political or lobbying activities”. Which they obviously did by leading boycotts in opposition to HB2…be gone troll!

  3. Jeffery says:

    It’s actually gov’t harassment of private entities. Real conservatives used to oppose that. Not playing your tournament in NC is not “leading a boycott”. It’s the gov’t attacking an organization for their beliefs.

    Why not investigate the Southern Baptist Convention for not holding their anuual meeting in Las Vegas?

      So little guy thinks the government shouldn’t be able to force someone to bake a cake for a qweermo wedding?
      Good to know.
      Thanks again, little dumbass…
      You’re consistent.
      Consistently stupid, that is…

      The NCAA doesn’t have “beliefs” you idiot. They’re a sports organization not a religion.

      The hate runs deep in you, bless your heart.

    If I think that I am a great basketball player, can I go on the court and start playing? Seems that I should be allowed, because I want it.

  5. Jeffery says:

    Hoggie,

    So we confer special rights to discriminate on organized religions? You get dumber with each comment. Does your old-folks home have a doctor? You need to be evaluated for dementia. You old hate-filled idiot.

  6. Rev.Hoagie® says:

    So we confer special rights to discriminate on organized religions?

    Yes, we do. Religion is protected under the Constitution and therefore many things that apply to normal businesses don’t apply to religion, number one being they can discriminate based on religion. But I suspect you’re aware of this and just wanted to spew some hate. Feel free, I enjoy seeing you deteriorate daily. Best wipe up that spittle before it gums up your computer keys li’l guy. Bless your heart.

    Hoggie,

    Your projection is astounding. You are a minister of a movement of hate, as you try to establish a fascist christian caliphate.

    Again you lie and again you have not the ability to look in the mirror and see yourself as others see you. I am a minister in the Christian faith and a Deacon of a Lutheran church. So if by “a movement of hate” you mean a church that preaches love and compassion then you are the one projecting since there is no hate in Jesus.

    Fascist caliphates are by definition Islamic, you idiot. Christians don’t have caliphates and fascism is the enemy of modern Christianity. In case you haven’t noticed Christianity is prohibited and/or illegal under your beloved fascism, Nazism and communism, and Islam. Just like you they fear the Message of Our Lord of Hope, Love and Charity and they preach control and enslavement and submission (the meaning of “Islam”).

    Being a hateful little man, full of loathing and envy is no way to go through life, Jeffery. Unable to feel empathy for anyone from the tiniest human embryo to the homosexuals and women abused and murdered by your beloved moslems reveals an empty soul full of fury and lacking any love save for yourself.

    You are a Christophobic bigot, an anti white racist and an anti American communist and therefore are in no position to judge the merits of anyone else. I suggest you work on your own personal flaws and deficiencies before pointing to those of others. And I suggest when you accuse someone of something you at least make it plausible. A “fascist Christian caliphate”, indeed!

    BTW, yesterday I saw an elderly nut case being dragged away with hair thinning on the top and a mullet in the back with a large red hammer and sickle tattooed on his chest on COPS. It got my attention because it was the St. Louis police so I wondered if the shirtless old reprobate was or beloved Jeffery. Sadly he was being dragged from a double-wide and I recalled you said your housing was modest for a millionaire so your trailer would necessarily be a single. I’ll keep watching and I’m sure you’ll show up sooner or later.

    That should have read: So unless if by “a movement of hate” you mean a church that preaches love and compassion then you are the one projecting since there is no hate in Jesus.
