Pat McCrory Calls Feds “Bullies” For Attacking His Pro-Discrimination Law, Files Hopeless Lawsuit

Gov. Pat McCrory told Chris Wallace at Fox News Sunday that the federal government was being “a bully” by declaring his discrimination law violates the Civil Rights Act.

“It’s the federal government being a — a bully!” McCrory whined. “It’s making law.”

He was, of course, referring to the letter he received last week from the Justice Department explaining that the law he signed back in March, which banned all nondiscrimination laws statewide and dictated which bathrooms trans people were legally allowed to use, was unconstitutional.

In the letter, the feds gave McCrory an ultimatum: Repeal the law or lose millions (and potentially billions) in federal money.

“So now the federal government is going to tell almost every private sector company in the United States who can and who cannot come into their bathrooms, their restrooms, their shower facilities for their employees, and they’re also telling every university in the United States of America?” McCrory said.

On the contrary, McCrory is the one trying to police who can and cannot use bathrooms. And the Feds are the ones telling him he can’t do that.

In true Republican form, McCrory also took a swing at President Obama, accusing him of “changing tradition.”

“This is a basic change of norms that we’ve used for decades throughout the United States of America and the Obama administration is now trying to change that norm,” the governor said.

But rather than obey the constitution of the United States of America as the Justice Department is demanding he do, McCrory has decided to spend taxpayer money fighting it out in court.

This morning, the state of North Carolina filed a lawsuit against the federal government for what it calls “baseless and blatant overreach.” The lawsuit also accuses the justice department’s top civil rights lawyer, Vanita Gupta, and U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch of enforcing a “radical reinterpretation” of federal civil rights law.

Because demanding that all citizens be treated equally and fairly is super radical.
