Can real estate billionaire Donald Trump unite the Republican party against presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton this fall? The #NeverTrump and the #NeverHillary contingencies are in overdrive, fighting on social media and around water coolers all across America. Here’s the ever-developing list of people who have said they will not, as Chris Cillizza wrote, “bend the knee to Trumpism.” [Read more…]
In its recent edition, Time magazine made a surprising statement for a far-left magazine that generally promotes the sexual liberation of the sexual revolution. It claimed that pornography might be detrimental to our society. [Read more…]
PayPal supports involuntarily exposing women and girls to male nudity as a condition of going to the bathroom
Remember when it was a normal thing to expect men to use men’s restrooms and women to use women’s restrooms? Well apparently now that is a radical position… in fact, that position is invoking corporate boycotts in the name of social justice.
David French at National Review explains:
PayPal has announced that it will not open a new operations center in Charlotte, North Carolina, because of the state’s new “bathroom law” — a law that sensibly requires people to use public, multi-occupancy bathrooms that correspond with their biological sex. PayPal thinks this is horrible. To put it bluntly, PayPal’s “corporate values” include involuntarily exposing women and girls to male nudity as a condition of going to the bathroom. This used to be called sexual harassment and indecent exposure. Now it’s called social justice.
How did our country become so backwards?
But if Paypal is so committed to activism that they are boycotting North Carolina over gendered bathroom policies, surely they continue their social justice crusade throughout every state and country in which they operate? Ummm… not quite.
And of course no story of hipster corporate progressives would be complete without a copious amount of hypocrisy. As Rick Moran details, PayPal is just fine doing business in locations like the United Arab Emirates, Turkey, Russia, India, and Malaysia — where draconian laws and punitive cultures mean that gay or transgender people can face prison, violent official persecution, and even execution. But North Carolina is beyond the pale.
The hypocrisy is as maddening, but it does help show Paypal’s real agenda.
Are you a disheartened conservative Republican frustrated because it feels like we can’t decide on who should take on Hillary Clinton? Are you confused by the constant in-fighting between conservatives, libertarians, populists, and the establishment? Shouldn’t we be more focused on taking down Hillary Clinton instead of each other? Is there any hope? [Read more…]
