Loretta Lynch's statement on North Carolina bathroom.
Copyrighted Image? DMCA

More proof that the US is experiencing a national nervous breakdown -- North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory is suing the Federal government to make sure everyone goes potty in the right toilet. And Attorney General Loretta Lynch has fired back with a fierce "Oh HELL no" counter-suit threatening to withhold federal monies from North Carolina if McCrory insists on this gross civil rights violation.

Honestly, is this where we are today? Suing over the preposterous fear that a transgendered person is going to molest a child in a bathroom? Again, why not target a serious threat against children and pass a law prohibiting Catholic priests from ever being within a three-foot distance of them?

The Neocons have yet to come up with a single example of a crime committed by a transgendered person in a bathroom. Or an airplane. Or a laundromat. Or an elevator. You get the picture. This is a desperate lashing out against those with different sexual orientations (although many transgendered individuals aren't gay ... not that there's anything wrong with that ;-).

Ever since the Supremes validated marriage equality, the rabid righties have gone bonkers, searching for ANYTHING they could grasp that would beat back the homosexual hoards invading their towns and forcing their clergy, bakeries, and floral shops to commit blasphemy against GOD!

Or something like that.

Read the Raw Story reporting of the verbal spanking AG Lynch gave McCrory:

"Attorney General Loretta Lynch on Monday accused the state of North Carolina of 'state-sponsored discrimination against transgender individuals.'

"Lynch said during a press conference the controversial 'bathroom' law targeted transgender people who sought 'to engage in the most private of functions in a place of safety and security, a right taken for granted by most of us.'

She also warned that the federal government could curtail federal funding for North Carolina if the state continued to enforce the law.

"She noted that the Justice Department had sent a letter to North Carolina governor Pat McCrory, warning that the law violated Title VII of the Civil Rights Act. But 'instead of replying, North Carolina and its governor chose to respond by suing, thus we are filing civil rights lawsuit against North Carolina,' Lynch said.

"'What we must never do is turn on our neighbors, our family members, and our fellow Americans for something they cannot control and deny what makes them human. This is why none of us can stand by when a state enters the business of legislation identity and insists a person pretend to be something or someone they are not.'

"'This is not the first time we've seen discriminatory responses to moments of progress,' she remarked. 'This law provides no benefit to society. All it does it harm innocent Americans.'

"Maybe the Supremes will have to intervene on this one. Who would have thought the Justices might one day take on the battle of the johnny? Good Gawd, only in Trump's America."
