US government: North Carolina LGBT law violates civil rights

by
May 5, 2016

A North Carolina law limiting protections to LGBT people violates federal civil rights protections and can’t be enforced, the U.S. Justice Department said Wednesday, putting the state on notice that it is in danger of being sued and losing hundreds of millions of dollars in federal funding.

The law, which also requires transgender people to use public bathrooms that conform to the sex on their birth certificate, has been broadly condemned by gay-rights groups, businesses and entertainers, some of whom have relocated offices or canceled shows in the state. Several other states have proposed similar laws limiting LGBT protections in recent months.

In a letter to Gov. Pat McCrory, the Justice Department said federal officials view the state law as violating federal Civil Rights Act protections barring workplace discrimination based on sex. Provisions of the state law directed at transgender state employees violate their anti-discrimination protections, the letter said.

“The State is engaging in a pattern or practice of discrimination against transgender state employees and both you, in your official capacity, and the state are engaging in a pattern or practice of resistance” of their rights, the letter said.

    The answer is simple simply install multiple single occupancy restrooms.No more problems.

  • E Swisher

    The DOJ needs to go back and study the Constitution. They have no grounds whatsoever… period. Stay strong Gov. McCrory

  • George Jones

    You can’t violate GOD’s law to satisfy man’s law. This country better get that straight. It is not a civil right for a queer man to go into a women’s restroom. I recommend that all women be given a bottle of mace and the civil right to use it.

    The Sick Sodomites belong in a mental institution, not a girls bathroom. The corrupt Obama administration is merely pandering for votes

  • Harvey Thomas Creech

    I don’t normally use any profanity but this letter from the Feds to Gov. McCrory is bullshit! This is intimidation, extortion, and undue pressure at its worst! Are we turning into a fascist state/country where the government feels that they can pull hundreds of millions of dollars in Federal funding because of a bogus interpretation of Title IX and Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act. I don’t think that either one or both these regulations had anything to do with transgenderism, gender identity, gender expression, and LGB issues when they came out. It’s only during Obama’s administration – mainly his 2nd term- that his hand-picked radical friends in Washington have interpreted these documents to favor the LGBT crowd, with the T’s the new flavor of the day. The T’s, many of whom(if not all)suffer from a mental illness known as gender transphoria. They should be counseled, not encouraged to follow through with gender reassignment, and certainly not given special rights and protections by the Feds and have the Feds ‘punish’ any state legislature, governor, and AG who pass bills designed to protect the 99.7% of citizens in restrooms, showers, etc. from sexual predators. The NC legislature is not going to be intimidated by deadlines and threats to take away funds. And I stand with them.

    Unbelievable how evil has taken over this country in the past almost 8 years .this liberal fool government has gone from all good to evil . What kind of people do we have in this Government that want,s to permit men to enter a ladies restroom,yea they’re born a man they’ll die a man. We need to get all these evil corrupt fools out of this Government soon as possible.,Get some morality back in the USA.

  • grandmary42

    NO, it doesn’t! The CL law says NOTHING about gays, lesbians, & transgenders AND bathrooms!

  • jea2comments

    Shouldn’t the Justice Department really be called: The INJUSTICE Department? The LGBT’s rights don’t trump women’s rights, and if you have something “dangling” stay the hell out of the women’s bathroom! If you’re arrested, I don’t think the police are going to care what you “look like”, and what you “feel” like at the time, as men/transgenders/cross-dressers etc. will always go to the men’s jails/prisons. The fact that this is even an issue is beyond ridiculous and it’s an outright assault on women’s rights! Where are our rights and why are OUR RIGHTS not being protected?! This is all just part and parcel and a way to cause dissension in our society, once AGAIN brought to us by the Divider-In-Chief oZero! He also delights in causing racial divide and tensions and doing as much damage as possible to our society and culture along with attacking our religious rights as well. Let’s take a look at Target who is about to learn a valuable lesson and IS currently being made an EXAMPLE of in the retail world of what NOT to do to the general public, namely women! Target’s sales are free-falling with a loss of 2.5 billion in stock-drops and millions lost in revenue. To sum it up, they’ve become pariahs in the retail world! If this continues and I hope it does….they will soon be OUT of business! To Target I’d say: Good riddance!!!

    SO when the LYING BHO zo claims on certain “ISSUES” he lacks GONADS to face up to ” IT IS ALL STATES RIGHTS” UNtil he Prostate itself to VOTING TOOLS and then his DYsfubctionality renders “STATES RIGHTS” into the same BOVINE DROPPINGS HE SPEAKETH whe he claims that “WE ARE A Nation of LAWS” … Which BTW he BREAKS regularly!!!!

  • Luke

    Then NC should not send money to the gay federal gov’t, just keep it to use it at home.
    Our politicians are complete morons for ever starting sending that kind of money to an out of control gov’t..

  • Rodney Steward

    I think that states that are being forced to follow an Unconstitutional rule, that a child or any other person is harmed by one of these things acting as a queer, the U.S. Justice Dep. should be aloud to have the he$$ sued out of them!

  • joe

    As I have said many times, the only hold that the Fed has over the states is that Federal money – that is ours anyway but stolen by the politicians for “redistribution” – and they cannot send in troops. An act like that would certainly trigger an armed revolution.

    • Centurion

      All Governor McCrory has to do is tell all banks in NC to not send in federal withholding dollars to the treasury. NC still gets the fed money and also gets barry’s attention that he has NO jurisdiction in states rights.

      • joe

        True but it will not happen. Our “leaders” are addicted to the Federal funding and they refuse to realize that Federal funds are only their own state’s money being doled out to them, minus a fee of course.

  • d.dolcater

    The law is very clear. One cannot be discriminated against based on SEX, not attitude or personal belief. If one is confused about this, he or she need only look in his or her underwear.

    • 1947goldenjet

      Sound, very sound rejoinder. Well done.

      • d.dolcater

        Thank you.

  • American Me

    I stand with North Carolina.Men do not belong in Womens bath rooms no matter how warped their minds are.I don’t care if a guy thinks he is his own Grandma he still has a D–K.I can’t believe this is happening in America.Keep the queers away from little girls and women in the bathroom.Use the mens room if you were born a male and use the ladies room if you were born female. This is crazy.They want to give child molesters an open door policy. `

    • Rodney Steward

      If a few of these things are found hanged in these bathrooms, these things might change their own minds about this sickness! This is playing right into the hands of molesters!

  • 1947goldenjet

    By all means, let’s discriminate against ALL WOMEN who want an element of privacy and safety to accommodate biological (bio-illogical?) men.

    • 7papa7

      I guess then the country has violated these laws by having separate facilities for men and women. How about putting in separate facilities for perverts and they all stick with what they are. That will fix the problem. It will stop the pervs from entering the mens and womens facilities but give them there own that normal people don’t use. This entire thing is a total joke. Our economy is on its last legs, we are open for easy attack from islamist pigs and the government is worried about allowing pervs into restrooms. What have we become??

      • The Redhawk

        BULLS EYE AGAIN!!!

        • 7papa7

          Thank you

      • jea2comments

        I think this is just a distraction away from other things going on behind the scenes, much bigger things going on that we don’t know about by our so-called govt. in order to get America’s attention off the govt. and their corruption and the fact that our economy is about to collapse. The fact that this issue by the LGBT is even being entertained is ridiculous. It’s just another way obama is using to deliver a blow to our society and culture, via an assault on women’s rights! This is being done on purpose by the current Usurper who is nothing more than an evil, Divider-In-Chief, who also delights in causing racial tensions and who is doing everything in his power to cause as much misery to this country as he can before he leaves office, he’s evil, and he’s had an Agenda to destroy this country from Day 1. In answer to your question as to: “What have we become?” I think it’s not so much what we have become as it IS what the govt. that rules over us HAS become. I think the following scripture is applicable to THEM: Woe to them who say that evil is good and good is evil, that dark is light and light is dark, that bitter is sweet and sweet is bitter. Isaiah 5:20. I’m pretty sure the Lord’s wrath is upon obama and his current administration along with his minions. They’ll have a lot to answer for come Judgment Day!
        We need a serious Spiritual Revival in this country, and today is the National Day of Prayer. We all need to pray for our country not only today, but everyday. As the Lord says: “If my people who are called by my name shall humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14. Also read
        Romans 10:9-13….which speaks of man’s need for Salvation, which is the only way to get to heaven.

        • 7papa7

          I do agree that our government has sunk into the pit but that is only because the people have not demanded a legitimate and honest government. The government will only go as far as the people allow them to go. You are absolutely 10000% right that we need a Spiritual revival, that is the only hope for the country.

          • jea2comments

            Amen! I pray that all will pray for our country today, as it is National Prayer Day, and that we pray everyday for this great country of ours and that God will intervene and remove the “wicked” from our govt. God Bless.

        • Harvey Thomas Creech

          Good letter. Of course, you wlll be attacked as a bigot and a right wing fundamentalist. But hang in there! The Obamaites will receive their judgment one day.

          • jea2comments

            Thanks. I don’t care what “they” call me, I’ll stand against evil at the every turn and I won’t ever back down! God Bless.

          • Harvey Thomas Creech

            Since you are a praying man(or woman), please pray for Gov. McCrory and the Rep. leaders of the NC state legislature. Gov. Mac said that he would have a response to the DOJ Monday about their ‘demand’ that our legislature rescind or repeal the HB2 law. I heard that the state of North Carolina may sue the DOJ. I hope they do. The DOJ, Dept. of Education, EEOC, and other Fed. agencies shouldn’t be allowed to throw their weight around. As Barney Fife would say, ‘we need to nip it in the bud.’

          • jea2comments

            Okay…consider it done. May it be according to the Lord’s will. Let me know what the decision is…will you? Whether favorable or unfavorable. You are also correct about the DOJ, Dept. of Education, and other agencies. They don’t have the right to throw their weight around and since obama took office, these agencies seem to think they can do anything and get away with it. I think there’s an AGENDA behind it all, and it’s time for the people to rise up and fight back. Keep on your political representatives like white on rice. Support them, and pray for them. They have the power to get things done and there supposed to be supporting and representing We the People. Don’t ever give up fighting for what is right. Again…please let me know the outcome of the decision on Monday.
            God Bless.
            Romans 10:9-13

          • Harvey Thomas Creech

            Will do. The latest developments in the headlines of our Charlotte Observer are that the Dept. of Transportation(led ironically enough by a former mayor of Charlotte)and HUD are weighing in on HB2 to see if they can find more evidence of ‘discrimination’. They’re just piling it on, throwing pudding or spaghetti against the proverbial wall to see what will stick. Besides what does tranportation and housing have to do with supposed discrimination against the LGBT crowd. Our state is just being singled out and made a scapegoat; Obama is seeing how much crazy stuff he can get away with in his last few months in office. Hopefully, our next President is, as much as I dislike him, DT, so when he gets in there, he will clean house in all of the Cabinet level depts. and agencies where Obama’s cronies have held sway

          • jea2comments

            I agree with you. And yes, the current Usurper is trying anything and everything in order to create as much chaos as possible and sometimes I think he lies awake at night devising this kind of stuff. That nutbag truly is evil and delights in causing division, and wreaking havoc. Some day he will get reap what he has sown, hopefully sooner than later, and the same goes for Hitlery! I truly do think Donald Trump will make a good leader for this country, and he has got to be better than oZero and Hitlery! Even if he did just a fraction of what he says he’s going to do, I will be happy with him. I have a good feeling about Trump, and frankly I think he’s this country’s last chance to get it right. I truly do believe that Trump will CLEAN HOUSE, and Lord knows we need that to happen! Anyways, we will see what happens, and I look forward to hearing from you on Monday on HB2 decision. Have a great weekend.

          • Harvey Thomas Creech

            I am going to wait to see who Trump’s VP pick is and I hope that he gives a clue as to who he would pick for the Supreme Court and the key Cabinet posts before the election. He is going to need experienced people in the key agencies in D.C., even if they are members of the ‘Establishment.’ I would like to see Ted Cruz as Attorney General and Dr. Carson as head of Health and Human Services, for example.

          • jea2comments

            Trump is a shrewd businessman and I think he will make a good choice when it comes to selecting a VP. I definitely think that Dr. Carson will have a position in the Cabinet, and he would be excellent as the Director of Health & Human Services. I’m not sure about Ted though, but who knows maybe there’s a position for him as well. I think Chris Christie would make a good Attorney General as he was a former prosecutor. He might also make a good VP, although he’s for some things that I don’t necessarily agree with. At this point in the game, I don’t care who DT picks as VP, because no matter what, DT is getting my vote. 🙂

          • The Redhawk

            Right now he better TRY to understans that he NEEDS most of the Registered GOP voters along with 25% Mexican, Muslim,Women and Trannnies even or he’ll lose House and Senate to Shillery…He got my vote but his out of control VOCAL CHORDS scare me especially when his brain is disconnected

          • jea2comments

            Trump has some good advisers on his team, and I’m sure they are making him aware of what and who he needs to win over to his side. I think he has more of the hispanic vote than people think, or what the media portrays him to have. Trump did well in NV, which has a lot of hispanics. As far as the muslims are concerned, Louis Farakhan told the muslims to vote for Trump. I was surprised when I heard and read about that. I think most women are smart enough to figure out that Hillary is a phony, as well as dangerous and most don’t like her. She’s NOT for women’s rights, and she’s not for job creation. What has she ever accomplished, other than lining her pockets in various nefarious ways? Trump is unpredictable and you never know what he’s going to say, but that IS…what makes him unique and that is what most Americans like about him. He says, what most people are thinking. In essence he’s our mouth-piece and voicing our frustrations, and anger at an out-of-control govt. obama IS the reason that Trump is so wildly popular. Granted, Trump’s a little rough around the edges, but that’s what I like about him, along with his common-sense ideas, and the fact that he wants to get our economy going again and he will help get jobs created again. We need jobs in this country bad. The real UNEMPLOYMENT figure is at 35-42%…let that figure sink in for a moment. It’s a travesty and it’s OUTRAGEOUS to think that we as a country have been sunk by the current fake Potus to this degree. We need change alright, POSITIVE CHANGE!

          • The Redhawk

            He better adopt a POSITIVE TONE and PRESENT BELIEVABLE SOLUTIONS in DETAIL ….. the Clinton Machine will eat him up alive otherwise…

          • jea2comments

            I’ve seen him on several interviews, along with various speeches, and he’s acting very Presidential in these speeches as well as giving solutions to many of the problems our country is facing. He will indeed have a battle on his hands with Hitlery, but I think he’s way smarter than her, and he’s got some very good advisers on his team. Look at her track record of corruption? He’s got a lot of ammo he will bring out on her. So…get your popcorn ready, sit back and watch the fur fly! It’s going to be a craaaazy race!

          • The Redhawk

            Well if sounding “prssidential” is rehashing Slick Willie’s lying about the use of a CEEGAR and leaving a Stain on a blue Dress…Instead of attacking the LYING SOW on all of her INSANE Practices as SEC State and the Clinton Family Foundation ILLICIT Donations for Favors Received by the State DEPT including the sale of Uranium Mine IN America to Vladimir via Canadian “partner” of the Clintons a practice that SHOULD Indict the SHITLERY Immediately…He is Wasting Precious time …Slick is DONE! Shitlery is NOT!

          • jea2comments

            Trump is an interesting individual and he’s not at all predictable. Trump responds when attacked, and when mud is slung at him, he slings it back. I like his “don’t take any guff” attitude. I also like the fact that he’s a tough scrapper! Don’t worry, Trump IS already sizing Hitlery up and he’s got lots of dirt on her, and Goofy Warren. Who-by-the way had no problem throwing Hitlery under the bus recently, in a video on YouTube, and then in the next breath, now she’s all of a sudden Hitlery’s best friend. Whatever way the wind blows, is where Warren goes! I’m wondering now, how much money Hitlery paid to get Warren in her corner? Warren is ultra-liberal and a full-blown Socialist! However, most have learned that when you get into a “fight” with Trump, expect to have your ass handed back to you on a plate! Like I said before, let’s wait, watch and see, and rest assured Trump is NOT going to take any guff from either Hitlery or Elizabeth Warren. They’ll be discredit, for the garbage they are. Everytime someone, or some group comes out and attacks Trump, it nearly always bounces off and bites them in the ass! It’s going to be a tough fight, but I think Trump is up to it. I like the way he talks, and never backs down to any opponent. He’s a tough scrapper, and he doesn’t take any crap. He’s smart, and I believe he can outfox Hitlery and her record of “corruption” will be her undoing!

          • jea2comments

            Trump has already addressed some of these things on your list. He said he’s going to see to it that obama-care is repealed/replaced. He’s going to see to it that we will have job creation, and he said that he is going to penalize companies that leave the country in order to do business abroad. There will be penalties for them, and they will have to pay import taxes back to us in order to sell their products back to us. Trump also wants to bring back manufacturing jobs, which are nearly non-existent. Who knows better than Trump on how an economy works, he graduated with an Ivy-league education with a degree in Business. He knows how an economy works. He’s a job creator, and that is one of his main concerns for this country. In a speech he said, that we have 35-42% UNEMPLOYMENT in this country! That is OUTRAGEOUS and he’s not going to let this country be ravaged or taken advantage of any longer! In a recent speech Trump just addressed how Hitlery is NOT for women and he’s already attacked her on this and her husband “wild bill” on his abuses of women. Trump has also talked about how he wants to attack Isis and wipe them out. Trump has talked about “sanctuary cities” and about Kate Steinle who was attacked by an ILLEGAL immigrant with a long history of violence. Trump does not support the idead of “sanctuary cities.” He says anyone that wants to come to this country, must do so LEGALLY. Many of his speeches are on YouTube and you can see for yourself how he addresses some of the issues which are on your list. Keep in mind we still have about six months to go before election time, and I believe we will be seeing him really attack Hitlery on several points. The party is just beginning…He’s also been talking about and ran his campaign on the platform of illegal immigration, which is a threat to this country’s safety, as well as a constant drain on our economy. The building of the Wall is going to be one of the first things Trump orders, along with the getting our economy jump-started. Who better for that job, than Trump. As I’ve said before, to see some of the things he’s talked about, go and check out his speeches on YouTube. He’s got some great speeches and I believe he’s going to deliver what he says.
