After N.C. ‘Bathroom Bill’ Repeal, Why Are Liberals Still Upset?


There has been ongoing controversy surrounding North Carolina’s HB2, often derisively referred to as the “Bathroom Bill,” since it was passed a year ago. After a long and aggressive bullying campaign by the LGBTQ lobby, the North Carolina legislature ultimately came to the decision this week to repeal the law.

Democratic Governor Roy Cooper, who has been a leading force pushing for HB2’s repeal since his election last November, admitted in a statement that the repeal bill was “not a perfect deal or my preferred solution.” Nevertheless, he lauded its passage, proclaiming: “Today, we repealed House Bill 2. We begin to end discrimination. We begin to bring back jobs and sporting events. And we begin to repair our reputation.”

However, despite the fact that liberals finally got what they wanted, many are, somehow, still outraged, calling it a “repeal in name only.” According to GLAAD, a LGBTQ advocacy group, “This so-called ‘deal’ is politics at its worst and was only made as the state faced losing key NCAA events and further economic damage. What we witnessed was a last-minute idea thrown together with little thought of protecting transgender residents.”

Executive director of Equality NC Chris Sgro called the agreement a “shell piece of a legislation,” and referred to it as “HB2.0”.

The ACLU voiced their two cents via Twitter, with a series of tweets attacking the repeal:

That’s right, the ACLU and Lambda Legal are suing the state of North Carolina for repealing a law they’ve been aggressively bullying them into repealing for a year.

Let this be a lesson to political leaders nationwide: there’s no compromising with the radical LGBTQ lobby.
