Tennessee’s EPIC Response To California’s Travel Ban!
Kind of ironic isn’t it? The radical leftist California Attorney General Xavier Becerra tries to ban state-funded visits to states in America because of their anti-gay ordinances. However, these same Californians are the ones fighting against President Trump to ban Muslims from entering America from known terrorist-funded countries. I guess that means they’d rather have terrorists entering America, but they are not about to send their state employees to another state in America that, God forbid, has created their own laws within their own states about anti-gay ordinances. That’s liberals for you. Go figure!
H/T Conservative Tribune:
In the case of Tennessee, Becerra resented that the state’s legislators had passed a religious liberty bill “allowing counselors to refer patients to other counselors if they disagree with a patient’s lifestyle,” according to The Daily News in Memphis.
And so just because he disliked their law, Becerra felt he had the right to impose his will on them via blackmail.
What he neglected to consider before moving forward with his outrageous ban, though, is that the legislators in Tennessee have a zero tolerance policy toward leftist totalitarians.
Enter the state’s Senate, which in February introduced a scathing resolution condemning California for its bullying tactics.
Dubbed Senate Joint Resolution 111, the stunning bill was signed into law by Gov. Bill Haslam on May 4.
The gist of it was quite simple: The resolution urged the governor, the state House and the state Senate to ban state-funded travel to states that first imposed bans on them, so that those states would “feel the pain and not Tennessee.”
“BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that we urge the other forty-eight states to refrain from imposing their unfounded moral judgment on their sister states as California has done in order to prevent escalating foolishness,” the resolution further added.
The resolution also slammed California for its “exorbitant taxes, spiraling budget deficits, runaway social welfare programs, and rampant illegal immigration.”
The best part was the snark contained in this delectable line: “Tennessee is pleasantly surprised that California will not be sending its economic development teams to Tennessee to recruit our businesses.”
Not that business-friendly Tennessee would have had to worry anyway. Businesses have been fleeing California left and right over the past couple of years due to its anti-business laws. And the exodus out of the leftist state is expected to only grow worse as it further hikes its taxes and imposes even more regulations on small businesses.
Here’s the full document of the offical resolution:
As for California, well they take their liberal laws and shove them where the sun doesn’t shine.
I find it totally ironic, when it comes to putting the safety of Americans FIRST, California has NO PROBLEM letting in terrorists from known terrorist sponsored countries, but they are offended by other states who have the right to decide on their own anti-gay legislature within their own states AND will NOT allow their employees to travel to those states.
In other words, California doesn’t mind letting the terrorists in that support Sharia Law that would kill gays, but they don’t want their state employees to travel within the United States to other states that might have anti-gay laws.
Hmm! Something’s not right there!
