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.”

Whether you agree or disagree with the law, sports has no business sticking its nose in it.

They can stick there all-Star festivities up where the sun don't shine. Maybe they care less about there children privacy but we care about ours. North Carolina is right in there stand, to hell with that ass in Washington.  

since the nba cares more for non-heterosexuals then this heterosexual will no longer attend a nba game ever again

People need to get over this gender identification crap.  Either you have something between your legs (male) or you don't (female).  When it comes to using bathrooms, you go to the appropriate one.  What really gets me is that this all seems to be men wanting to use women's bathrooms.  I never hear of a woman wanting to use a man's bathroom.  I guess they don't like standing up to use the urinal.  So, to me, it seems like this is really about women turning men into feminine wimps.

It subverts women to men's wishes. A prelude to islam. We all know women will not go in men's, so it really is about getting men into women's private spaces and lowering defenses and they are doing through intimidation and law. This is only part 1. Islam is part 2.

Perhaps this should be put to the vote in each state.  I have a feeling the NBA would lose big time, and so would the very liberal Democratic Party.

ALERT ALERT

Angry Dem Impeachment ‘Witness’: Pam Karlan Donated Thousands To Hillary And Was On Clinton’s List For Potential SCOTUS Nomination

The House Judiciary Committee, chaired by Rep. Jerrold Nadler, kicked off its first impeachment circus Wednesday morning.

The four ‘witnesses’ testifying have never actually witnessed any of Trump’s dealings with Ukraine firsthand — the four witnesses are law professors offering legal analysis.

One of the witnesses the Dems rolled out is an angry Hillary Clinton donor who was on Crooked’s list for a potential Supreme Court nomination.

No wonder why this unhinged, dowdy woman is so pissed off!

“Professor Pam Karlan donated thousands of dollars to Democrats and was on Hillary Clinton’s list for a potential Supreme Court nomination. So she certainly has no vendetta against President Trump,” GOP Rep. Mark Walker said.

Congressman Walker also pointed out that Noah Feldman, the Dems first partisan witness in Wednesday’s hearing tweeted about impeaching Trump right after he was sworn in.

Meet Noah Feldman, House Democrats first partisan witness.

Look at the date of this tweet. He has been trying to get @realDonaldTrump impeached since 46 days into his presidency.

His reason? Trump criticized President Obama.

This is a sham impeachment with sham witnesses. https://twitter.com/NoahRFeldman/status/839185127494254592

The next witness, Karlan, has donated thousands to Democrats and was on Hillary Clinton’s list for a potential Supreme Court nomination.

So she certainly has no vendetta against @realDonaldTrump.

These witnesses are as serious as House Democrats impeachment case: not at all.

The entire sham show trial is stacked with partisan hacks who have wanted to impeach Trump from the moment he won in November of 2016.

Norm Eisen, the Democrats’ counsel who is blasting Trump and questioning witnesses in Wednesday’s show trial, tweeted about impeaching Trump before Donald Trump was even sworn into office!
