“It’s unfortunate that the black community decided to take a turn from Dr. King and go to Big Government, which has now collapsed their communities, and so the only ones speaking on their behalf are horrible progressives like [Attorney General] Loretta Lynch.”
Those are the words of CURE’s Star Parker, who appeared on Rush Limbaugh’s radio show on Thursday to talk about what’s happening in North Carolina.
The Charlotte City Council passed an ordinance to violate the privacy of women and girls and allow men access to women’s restrooms and changing rooms. The council decided it was more important to cater to people’s mental disorders than to apply common sense.
The legislature called an emergency session and passed a bill to strike down the ordinance. Gov. Pat McCrory signed the privacy bill into law. The U.S. Department of Justice has threatened the state.
Star spoke about this issue and leftism in general with Mark Belling, who sat in for Rush:
The left invokes the 1960s civil rights movement in declaring that men pretending to be women have a “civil right” to violate others’ privacy. Martin Luther King, Jr., wanted the country to be true to its founding principles, like limited government, free markets, and traditional values.
What we’re seeing now with the Obama administration is a war against the nation’s founding principles.
“The people have spoken in North Carolina through their representatives that they don’t want men going into women’s restrooms…We are not a gender-neutral society. We are gender-specific for all types of reasons — moral, spiritual, biological.”
Star agrees with Gov. McCrory that it’s time for the U.S. Congress to clarify what is or isn’t in the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
Belling pointed out that people are trying to equate skin color with almost everything else. Not all discrimination is wrong. Star said that Jim Crow was an example of Big Government. The country said it was government overreach, and the government couldn’t discriminate against individuals based on innate characteristics. Now we’re seeing an expansion of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to include gender, sex, “and other hijacks.”
