NBA pulls All-Star Game from Charlotte over N.C. transgender bathroom law

The National Basketball Association on Thursday pulled the 2017 All-Star Game out of Charlotte, North Carolina, over a law regulating intimate public facilities on the basis of biological sex.

The league said in a statement that holding the midseason match-up in Charlotte is impossible given the “climate” created by state law HB2.

“While we recognize that the NBA cannot choose the law in every city, state, and country in which we do business, we do not believe we can successfully host our All-Star festivities in Charlotte in the climate created by HB2,” the statement said.

The NBA said it is possible the All-Star Game could return to Charlotte in 2019, “provided there is an appropriate resolution to this matter.”

If it is that important to them then we can boycott all the NBA games and God will bless NC when we do it! They think a silly game is more important than a moral life... TO BAD... God will bless them with a special place at the close of their life! I say this lovingly! 

May we all wonder if the insane/hussian's daughters need to be concerned when they need to use the ladiesroom? Or is it just the "lowly commoners" that need to wait until they get home to safely use a toilet?

Just a few less thugs that the Charotte P.D. has to deal with,I wouldn't want them in my town either 

No problem.  They can keep their degeneracy to themselves.  Don't pollute this beautiful state.

I'm 40 years old, but I self-identify as a 65 year old. I therefore wish to receive my social security benefits now.........This, to me, is the crux of the issue. You can identify what what ever you like, but it doesn't make it so. This isn't about LGBT rights, it's about biology/genetics and fact. Unfortunately facts don't seem to be of concern anymore. It seems that we're getting less intelligent as we evolve.

Soon we will be worshiping the sun, moon and rocks. For all of their so called environmentalism, they keep rejecting science every day.

I agree JJR, LETS DEMAND OUR "SOCIAL INSECURITY" payments now before they bankrupt the funds anymore than the illegal regime has done to it.

Coercion & intimidation will fail now -- folks all over have had enough.

I don't care about the LBGTQ crowd one way or the other. I don't care if I share a public restroom with them -- but I care about perverts taking advantage of this Leftist craziness for their own sick purposes. My experience with those poor, gender bending people is that  while they are mentally ill they're generally not harmful to anyone except themselves and those with whom they cavort & consort.

But sick pedophiles, peepers, potential & actual rapists; that's another question entirely.

Sexual predators -- lock 'em up forever & execute them if they harm a child ... but the sexual orientation confused crowd: just ignore them but beat back their attempts to jam their sick life system into the mainstream.

So...none of us will watch the NBA either in person or on TV. Their choice has helped us make our decision:  boycott the NBA and all of their products. 

I live in the Outer Banks region of NC so this really ticks me off. First off like the one poster said I don't have an issue with the LGBTQ crowd as long as they conduct themselves with respect and honor with me and mine. What I do have mega issues with is all of the perverts, pedophiles and rapist who would try to use a woman's bathroom. As far as I'm concerned that situation would NOT end well for the pervert. The NBA has the right to have their All-Star Game anywhere they want but I have the right to not watch.

North Carolina also has the right to deny the NBA access to their communities... they should never yield to such intimidation.  Ban the NBA from NC.

That would put the shoe on the other foot, would make a very nice backhand to the bullies.

ALERT ALERT

Joe Biden Vows: Give Taxpayer-Funded Obamacare To All Illegal Aliens In U.S.

Former Vice President and 2020 Democrat presidential primary candidate Joe Biden is vowing to give Obamacare, funded by American taxpayers, to all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States.

During an interview with Telemundo’s Jose Diaz-Balart, Biden forgot that Obamacare technically bans illegal aliens from enrolling in healthcare plans — although illegal aliens are still able to obtain subsidized and free healthcare at Americans’ expense — and promised that under his plan, all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens would be able to get Obamacare.

The exchange went as follows:

DIAZ-BALART: When I … NBC moderated that first debate with you, I didn’t … I don’t recall a clear answer, under your plan should … would the 11, 12 million undocumented immigrants that live in the United States, that have been here many for generations, would they have access …

BIDEN: Yes.

DIAZ-BALART: — to health insurance.

BIDEN: Yes, they … if they can buy into the system like everybody else.

DIAZ-BALART: Because you know, in [Obamacare] they can’t.

BIDEN: Yeah. Yeah, I know. Well they can, that’s my point. They continue to be able to do that.

DIAN-BALART: They cannot under the ObamaCare.

BIDEN: Well and that’s my point, they will though. They will be able to buy into … [illegal aliens] would be able to buy in, just like anyone else could.

Biden joins Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg — among other 2020 Democrats — in committing to forcing American taxpayers to pay for healthcare for illegal aliens who arrive in the U.S.

Already, due to loopholes, American taxpayers are spending nearly $20 billion every year to provide illegal aliens with subsidized healthcare, emergency room visits, and other health services.

Under the 2020 Democrats’ plan to provide taxpayer-funded healthcare to all illegal aliens living in the U.S., Americans would be billed potentially $660 billion every decade just to cover the costs. Other research has found that the plan would cost Americans at least $23 billion every year.

As Breitbart News has reported, experts have said that giving taxpayer-funded healthcare to effectively all foreign nationals who can make it to America’s borders would drive “strong incentives for people with serious health problems to enter the country or remain longer than their visas allow in order to get government-funded care.”

Despite 2020 Democrats’ continued push for taxpayer-funded healthcare for illegal aliens, American voters are overwhelmingly opposed to the plan. The latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey revealed that the healthcare-for-illegal-aliens plan is the least popular policy position, with opposition from 62 percent of U.S. voters.

Similarly, a CNN poll from July discovered that 63 percent of likely swing voters oppose providing healthcare to illegal aliens, along with nearly 6-in-10 of all likely U.S. voters and 61 percent of moderates. A Rasmussen Reports survey also found that likely voters, by a majority of 55 percent, oppose giving healthcare to even the most low-income illegal aliens.
