PayPal vs. North Carolina’s “anti-LGBT” law: Questions no one else is asking about this “strange story”

Rebel Staff
 

I'm trying to make sense of PayPal's decision to cancel a major, multi-million dollar expansion into North Carolina after that state passed a supposedly "anti-gay" law.

If the whole thing is over washrooms, then what do gay, lesbians and bi sexuals have to do with any of it?

I haven’t used pay-pal since their breech either! But if they don’t quit sending me emails – I am going to raise some shit about them – but of course SJAs can do anything they want.

Business should stay out of ‘social justice’ issues.

This is just too good to not repost, I hope you don’t mind Bill E. “…. so reasoning people who are disgusted with the the infection of commerce with cultural Marxist vogue should tell Paypal and all the other SJW corporate zombies that if they act like politicians they will be treated like those vulgar skanks and we will vote against them with our dollars and patronage.”

I suppose they think latching onto the latest fad/social justice topic, they make themselves more popular. Do they not realize that it pisses off as many people if not more than it pleases? I haven’t used paypal since their security breech a few years ago, a Russian hack I believe.

While I am someone who believes that the state has no business in the bedrooms of the nation (probably very quaint nowadays), why do PayPal, Apple, and these other firms find North Carolina and Mississippi so objectionable, but will continue to do business in China and the Middle East and elsewhere where being gay or transgender is punishable by death? My, of all things for these two states to insist on (among other things) that ladies bathroom and changerooms are just for them exclusively. Or that a devoutly Christian baker does not get the pants sued off him when (doing as a Muslim baker would do without issue) refusing to bake a cake for a gay wedding.

You are one who obviously has common sense.

The fact is cash is far more important than the false “righteous outrage”

I think as a “best practices” agenda for freedom minded individuals you should boycott Paypal anyway – they have – they have been involved in any number of politically motivated boycotts of customers themselves for years – the executive consider themselves corporate SJWs. Politics and business don’t mix any better than politics and religion so they should be taught that lesson.

I’ve no doubt the selfies would deal with Hitler himself if he offered an online service, but most here are mature libertarians with some time in both the political grass and business world, so reasoning people who are disgusted with the the infection of commerce with cultural Marxist vogue should tell Paypal and all the other SJW corporate zombies that if they act like politicians they will be treated like those vulgar skanks and we will vote against them with our dollars and patronage.

Personally I started boycotting Paypal when they became anti-second amendment butt surfers and refused service to legitimate sporting arms businesses.

Those laws are not anti-BLT.
I call them “pro-choice” or “pro-freedom”.
