WATCH: Sean Spicer Reacts to N.C. ‘Bathroom Bill’ Repeal

This past Thursday, the North Carolina legislature came to the decision to repeal HB2, derisively referred to in the media as the ‘bathroom bill,’ after a year-long bullying campaign by the LGBT community. Despite finally getting what they wanted, liberals are still upset, calling the repeal “HB2.0” and “a repeal in name only.” During Friday’s White House Press Conference, Press Secretary Sean Spicer was questioned about the repeal. Video and transcript are below: Q: During the presidential campaign the President said he was with the state on North Carolina’s law banning transgender people from using certain restrooms.

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 Nevertheless, he lauded its passage, proclaiming: “Today, we repealed House Bill 2.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

Liberals Don’t Actually Care About the Economic Impact of HB2

Yesterday, liberals on Twitter — and dozens of journalists — rushed to retweet a story from the Associated Press claiming that the North Carolina so-called “bathroom bill” law, HB2, cost the Tarheel State an estimated $3.76 billion in economic impact over 12 years: Over the past year, North Carolina has suffered financial hits ranging from scuttled plans for a PayPal facility that would have added an estimated $2.66 billion to the state’s economy to a canceled Ringo Starr concert that deprived a town’s amphitheater of about $33,000 in revenue. The blows have landed in the state’s biggest cities as well as

LGBT Bullies Continue Assault on North Carolina

Last week marked the one-year anniversary of the passage of North Carolina’s House Bill 2 — popularly labeled as the state’s “bathroom bill” — which was passed last spring to overturn a Charlotte city ordinance mandating public bathrooms, locker rooms, and other facilities be open to use by persons based on their “gender identity.” Though polls have shown that the law’s actual precepts have plenty support from North Carolina residents, the LGBT community and their allies on the Left have not ceased their attacks on the state. Several weeks ago, the Human Rights Campaign announced the launch of a campaign to

LGBT Lobby Demands NCAA Limit Events to Blue States

The Human Rights Campaign (HRC) announced earlier this week they are launching a project to convince the NCAA to restrict sports championship events — such as March Madness tournament games — to liberal-leaning states. The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Deformation (GLAAD), and Lambda Legal have all signed onto the initiative, which “urges” the NCAA to “reaffirm … previous commitments to nondiscrimination and inclusion by avoiding venues that are inherently unwelcoming and unsafe for LGBT people.” And these demands don’t simply apply to particular venues. The letter also calls on the NCAA to avoid holding

Trump Admininistration Withdraws Obama Transgender Guidelines

On Wednesday, the Departments of Education and Justice jointly issued a “Dear Colleague” letter, withdrawing Obama era guidelines dictating that U.S. schools allow transgender students access to facilities – such as bathrooms and locker rooms — matching the students’ “gender identity” rather than their biological sex. With the publishing of this letter, the question of how to handle access to bathrooms and locker rooms while balancing privacy concerns for all students is now up to individual states and school districts. The letter included a promise from the Department of Education to hear discrimination claims and “ensure that all students, including

McCrory May Have Lost in North Carolina, But HB 2 Didn’t

Frank argued quite persuasively last week that it wasn’t House Bill 2 itself that doomed North Carolina’s Gov. Pat McCrory in his reelection bid, but rather the overwhelming negative publicity dumped on the state by the left-leaning media and corporate-entertainment-sports complex. But while Democrats and their allies were busy outspending McCrory in the governor’s race by nearly $8 million, Republicans continued to rack up victories in the state legislature. In fact, of the 89 GOP state legislators running for reelection who voted for HB 2, only two lost their seats to Democrats. And the Republican Party as a whole maintained its

McCrory Didn’t Lose Because HB 2 Was a “Social Issue”

Today, North Carolina’s Republican Gov. Pat McCrory announced he would be conceding the state’s gubernatorial race to Democratic Gov.-elect Roy Cooper, bringing an end to several weeks of recounts and investigations into alleged cases of voter fraud. Despite his defeat, conservatives should applaud Gov. Pat McCrory for standing up for what is right. He refused to back down from corporate bullies and progressive lynch mobs, and because of his steadfastness, he became Public Enemy Number Two this election cycle for the Left. Ultimately, they got their scalp only by the narrowest of margins. While McCrory’s defeat is disappointing, there are
