Loretta Lynch to NC: Let men use women’s restrooms or we’ll withhold funds for public safety, UNC

lynch2Attorney General Loretta Lynch is now demanding that North Carolina let men use women’s restrooms, claiming that failure to do so somehow violates federal civil rights laws.

In a statement delivered Monday, she announced a federal civil rights lawsuit over the matter and further threatened to withhold certain federal funds from the state.

“Today, we are filing a federal civil rights lawsuit against the state of North Carolina, Governor Pat McCrory, the North Carolina Department of Public Safety and the University of North Carolina,” she said.  “We are seeking a court order declaring House Bill 2’s restroom restriction impermissibly discriminatory, as well as a statewide bar on its enforcement.  While the lawsuit currently seeks declaratory relief, I want to note that we retain the option of curtailing federal funding to the North Carolina Department of Public Safety and the University of North Carolina as this case proceeds.” (Emphasis added)

“This action is about a great deal more than just bathrooms.  This is about the dignity and respect we accord our fellow citizens and the laws that we, as a people and as a country, have enacted to protect them – indeed, to protect all of us.  And it’s about the founding ideals that have led this country – haltingly but inexorably – in the direction of fairness, inclusion and equality for all Americans,” she added.

Actually, as North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory noted, this is a “radical reinterpretation” of the law designed to force left-wing ideology on not just North Carolina, but the entire country.

“This is an attempt to unilaterally rewrite long-established federal civil rights laws in a manner that is wholly inconsistent with the intent of Congress and disregards decades of statutory interpretation by the Courts,” said the complaint filed against the DOJ by McCrory.

The law in question has been criticized as discriminatory, but actually protects religious freedom and girls in public bathrooms.  Lynch, however, compared the law to Jim Crow.  Because in her upside-down bizzaro world, making men use the men’s room is somehow akin to segregation…

But leftists are determined to turn logic and reason on its head.  What’s next?  The mind boggles…
