    N.C. state lawmaker who sponsored "bathroom bill" wins GOP primary in redo election

    A North Carolina state senator who sponsored the state's controversial anti-transgender "bathroom bill" has won the Republican primary for the 9th Congressional seat. The North Carolina Board of Elections in January called for a new election after a months-long investigation into alleged absentee ballot fraud.



    Sen. Dan Bishop topped nine other GOP candidates seeking the 9th Congressional District nomination. The Charlotte attorney raised the most in campaign contributions, seeded with $250,000 from his personal accounts.

    In 2016, he sponsored House Bill 2, the law that voided a Charlotte ordinance expanding LGBT rights and prevented similar anti-discrimination rules anywhere else in the state. HB2 was nicknamed the "bathroom bill" because it also directed transgender people to use public bathrooms and showers that matched their birth sex. The measure made waves nationally and prompted boycotts by entertainers, governments and some businesses thinking about moving jobs to North Carolina.

    Well folks, I'm going to shock you this morning by announcing my personal endorsement of Mr. Bishop's bid for this seat, marking my first Republican endorsement ever.

    As with other Republicans, there is, on balance, little I agree with about what Bishop stands for. However, the fact that Bishop is best-known for sponsoring legislation banning men from women's restrooms (which apparently somehow constitutes a terrible form of "discrimination" against men ) suggests to me that his would be a particularly strong voice on an issue that I care about a lot. Transgender politics pose perhaps the greatest danger to women's rights and interests at this time in America, I believe.

    I remember what happened to North Carolina when they passed the so-called bathroom bill. I've never seen anything like it before in my life. Never before in my life have I seen corporate America writ large essentially decide to impose voluntary economic sanctions on an entire U.S. state before. Officially I was supportive at the time (because *officially* I supported transgender politics at the time), but the truth is that, privately, said development terrified me.

    A handful of prominent feminists have been trying to replicate the state boycott phenomenon in Georgia lately over the state's ridiculous new "heartbeat bill", but of course no comparable response has come from the powers that be. Why not? The consistency between these two developments lies in consistent corporate opposition to women's rights: North Carolina's "bathroom bill" protected women's right to privacy and safety, prompting the boycott, while Georgia's "heartbeat bill" greatly reduces the right of women to bodily autonomy, prompting no commercial response. That delusional actors like Alyssa Milano actually thought there was some kind of overlap between the interests of the transgender movement and those of women is the laughable thing here that is disproven by these contrasting developments. Now perhaps some of them will find themselves forced into a different realization.

    I suspect Dan Bishop has a real chance to win this seat, and particularly to garner the support of women.

    1) What's controversial about a law forbidding men from entering the ladies room?

    2) Why is it only the Republican who gets an election re-do when absentee ballot fraud is alleged? What about the other 434 cases where the Rodent does it?

    3) What's "ridiculous" about a law protecting babies? Is there some reason the bimbos can't control their bodies so they don't get knocked up in the first place? Anyone on the left know of any sure-fire methods of not getting pregnant?

    We the People DID NOT vote in a majority Rodent Congress, they stole it via election fraud.

    Polly, it was you are your ilk that painted yourselves into this corner.
    Liberals are a clear and present danger to our freedom and our society and our morals.

    Why must you find a way of objecting to everything I say even when we clearly agree in substance? Go $#@!ing blow yourself!

    Nothing, if it really protected babies, but it doesn't. It just ensures that they will be born to people who don't want them and are unlikely to provide them with a good life. It may guarantee that they will end up in the foster care system where most of their care will be provided by people who are only interested in the fee that they get. It will guarantee that most will be despised by the right and considered the scum of the earth and not worthy of the cost of their upkeep. They will most likely attend the worst schools, with the worst teachers where they will learn/be taught that they have no opportunities and that they will eventually provide a profit for the industrial private for profit prison system.

    It settles the Russian adoption issue. We have so few children up for adoption that wannabe parents adopt from Russia, China and Africa.

    Abortion has murdered 60 million Americans. 60 million dead is a staggering number. Were there 60 million rape victims? Were there 60 million incest victims? Deduct the number of incest victims that were willing. Were 60 million women dying in the delivery room whose lives could only be saved by an abortion? How many parents adopted foreign children while the American left was slaking its bloodlust

    There was a doctor saying that late term abortions are only medically necessary when the baby has died. If the child is viable they perform a c section. So how many of the 60 million dead is necessary?

    This puts us up there with the greatest mass murderers of all bloody history. We are worse than Vlad the Impaler.

    Russia has an adoption issue. They knowingly adopt off their troubled children and lie about their physical and mental health issues. There was a case many years ago where an American family adopted a Russian kid (don't remember his age, but he was not a baby.) The kids was a little monster and the family had to fight to return him- they felt he was a danger to them and their other children.
