Yesterday I wrote wondering if Attorney General Roy Cooper would stand up to the increasing overreach by the U.S. Department of Education (USED) by joining an amicus brief regarding the USED’s lawfare to force schools to allow transgender to basically pick their bathroom or locker room at will.
The same day, AG Cooper answered and that answer was to give North Carolina parents and kids the middle finger.
That’s not bullying, that’s called asking you to do your job.
Actually, Cooper didn’t even have the guts to do the dirty work himself. He used a staffer to do it for him.
Carolina Journal reports:
Jamal Little, a spokesman for Cooper’s campaign, posted a notice yesterday saying McCrory “bullied” Gavin Grant, the transgender student, and linking the dispute to the debate over refugees fleeing the war in Syria. After noting that the governor is seeking a temporary ban on resettlement of Syrian refugees in North Carolina until greater security clearance measures are in place — a stance Cooper shares — Little wrote:
“This week, [McCrory has] found another group to politicize. Adolescence is hard enough without being bullied by an elected official. Next week, who knows who’ll be the target of a governor whose only path to re-election is dividing North Carolina.”
This move by USED isn’t just about giving students who self “identify” as the opposite sex a space of their own in order to be comfortable, USED has gone further as the Illinois case shows. USED is using Title IX to force school systems to allow these students to use opposite sex locker rooms and bathrooms.
Parents, how would you feel if your daughter had to share a locker room with a boy simply based on that boy self identifying as a girl or vice versa? How do you feel about a federal agency using the law to force that to happen?
Cooper prefers the needs of the few outweigh the needs of the many. Good to know that if he were elected Governor, he’d be more than happy to throw his state under the federal government bus.
