The Profound Hypocrisy of Business Elites Masquerading Business Decisions as Moral Outrage September 28, 2016Posted by Tantumblogo in asshatery, disaster, error, General Catholic, It's all about the $$$, persecution, rank stupidity, Revolution, scandals, secularism, self-serving, sexual depravity, sickness, Society, unbelievable BS.
Some great commentary from Franklin Graham, scion of the well-known evangelical family, on the blatant hypocrisy of the NCAA, ACC, and other business organizations punishing North Carolina for forbidding sick and/or perverse men from using women’s restrooms in public, while doing business with organizations with far more problematic, even immoral ties (via Pertinacious Papist with my comments):
As a lifelong resident of North Carolina and current CEO and president of two organizations employing nearly 1,500 North Carolinians, I am saddened — even outraged — by the vote of the ACC Council of Presidents to move conference championships from our state in protest of legislation requiring people to use public bathrooms that correspond with their birth gender.
While I recognize this legislation — and legislation like it in other states — is complicated by society’s continued blurring of the lines of gender and sexual identity, I also recognize the profound hypocrisy of the ACC, the NCAA and other companies and organizations who are making calculated business decisions disguised as moral outrage. [Great point. Do tell more]
For example, the football championship game your conference voted to move from Charlotte in December is called the “Dr. Pepper ACC Football Championship.” Dr. Pepper and its parent company, Cadbury Schweppes and Carlyle Group, proundly sell their products in countries where homosexuality is illegal. Will ACC drop its title sponsor? And why isn’t the LGBT community demanding you sever ties with such a “bigoted” corporate sponsor? [Of course they won’t. Because moving the championship game costs the ACC or NCAA nothing, while it hurts North Carolina a bit. But severing ties with all corporations that conduct business in lands with violent, repressive governments would have HUGE cost, so that, of course, goes out the window. This is the very definition of hypocrisy, and is also how the left-dominated elite works on a daily basis. Targeted outrage, targeted punishment, all directed towards a political goal, a goal that yields a tangible economic benefit. Support the leftist power structure, get amazing $$$$, oppose it, and get crushed]
Currently, LGBT relationships are illegal in more than 70 countries — including 10 where homosexuality is punishable by death. Dr. Pepper is often bottled under contract by Coca-Cola bottlers — yet Coca-Cola conducts business in virtually every nation on earth, including nearly every country where homosexuality is currently criminalized. Can your conference continue to tolerate that?
The ACC website proudly features Toyota as an “Official Corporate Champion,” yet Toyota maintains factories and distribution centers in several of these discriminatory countries, including Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Egypt. Where is the moral outrage of the presidents of Boston College, Clemson, Duke, Florida State, Georgia Tech, Louisville, Miami, UNC, North Carolina State, Notre Dame, Pittsburgh, Syracuse, Virginia, Virginia Tech and Wake Forest?[Once again, this inconvenient fact reveals the monetary scheming at the heart of this duplicitous “stand” against North Carolina’s bathroom law]
Indeed, the ACC’s member schools compete in 25 sports divided by gender — 12 men’s sports and 13 women’s. Though gender issues may be becoming more complicated in higher education and other parts of society, the athletic conference you serve as commissioner doesn’t seem to have any problem distinguishing between the two genders — male and female. Yet, when a state like the one I live in seeks to make the same distinction with regard to use of public bathrooms in an effort to protect its citizens from those who would use the men’s room today and th women’s room tomorrow, the academic elites who comprise your conference fake a moral outrage that is frankly shameful.
Ironically, the NCAA is more discriminatory towards transgender people than the public policy they apparently wish to see as law in America. For example, opponents to legislation like NC House Bill 2 support permitting people to use the bathroom which corresponds to the sex they identify with on a given day — meaning someone might feel like a man today and a woman tomorrow, switching bathrooms at will.
Yet even the NCAA doesn’t allow such casual gender identity for participation in collegiate athletics. The NCAA Policy on Transgender Student-Athlete Participation states, “Any transgender student-athlete who is not taking hormone treatment related to gender transition may participate in sex-separated sports activities in accordance with his or her assigned birth gender.” [Lying money-grubbing self-serving Christian-persecuting blankety blank…….]
I think I represent the views of millions who would rather preserve gender-specific public bathrooms — a mainstay for generations — than to attend a football game in my state to determine the champion of a conference governed by politically-correct, morally hypocritical academics.
Commissioner, in your statement today you said, “the ACC Council of Presidents made it clear that the core values of this league are of the utmost importance, and the opposition to any form of discrimination is paramount. Today’s decision is one of principle.” Will this same paramount “opposition to any form of discriminatin” have you now sever ties with Toyota and Dr. Pepper?
Again, we know the answer to that. Cutting ties with Dr. Pepper would not only deny the conference a shoot-pot full of money, it could cause a lot of other corporate sponsors to bail out and really hurt their bottom line. And they can’t have that. It’s entirely a moral outrage of convenience. No cost to the ACC, Google, NCAA, Facebook, and all the others virtue-signalling saps out there who only care about today and tomorrow’s profit, and care nothing for the destruction of the moral order in this nation or the souls whose lives – and prospects of salvation! – will be ruined in the process.
If these self-serving business interests had a moral bone in their bodies, they would immediately stand in staunch and total opposition to abortion and contraception, but I’ll be King of Mars before that happens.
But, of course, the self-anointed elites don’t believe Heaven, hell, or any of that kind of crap anymore.
