North Carolina’s representatives are not backing down.
Last week saw the state’s Lieutenant Governor Dan Forest respond to PayPal’s announcement that they were suspending plans to expand their business in North Carolina, in objection to the recently passed bathroom bill. Lt. Governor Forest posted a photo of PayPal’s global operations center, which has clearly defined, gender-specific bathrooms.
The cultural Marxist crowd really are all about “Do as I say, not as I do.”
Not to be outdone, NC Representative Robert Pittenger issues this statement:
“PayPal does business in 25 countries where homosexual behavior is illegal, including 5 countries where the penalty is death, yet they object to the North Carolina legislature overturning a misguided ordinance about letting men in the women’s bathroom? Perhaps PayPal would like to try and clarify this seemingly very hypocritical position?”
Hypocrisy – that most treasured virtue of the left.

Meanwhile, the calls to boycott PayPal have grown and many are cancelling their accounts with the company. If there’s anything a leftist values more than a double standard, money may be it (all while claiming to hate the materialism of the right, of course).
We shall see in the coming weeks who triumphs in this latest battle.
