Skip to comments.Backlash over PayPal decision to cancel NC expansion [NC Leaders Fighting Back!]
Posted on 04/06/2016 6:38:36 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper
When PayPal announced plans to expand in Charlotte, it made headlines by promising 400 jobs and millions of dollars in payroll.
Now PayPal is making bigger headlines nationwide as it backs out of the deal with Charlotte, citing the recently passed House Bill 2. PayPal said the law violates their values and principles concerning equality...
Congressman Robert Pittenger...released a statement saying, PayPal does business in 25 countries where homosexual behavior is illegal
yet they object to the North Carolina legislature overturning a misguided ordinance about letting men in to the womens bathroom? Perhaps PayPal would like to try and clarify this seemingly very hypocritical position.

Congressman Robert Pittenger made a great point yesterday: PayPal does business in 25 countries where homosexual behavior is illegal, including 5 countries where the penalty is death, yet they object to the North Carolina legislature overturning a misguided ordinance about letting men in to the womens bathroom? Perhaps PayPal would like to try and clarify this seemingly very hypocritical position. Just last month PayPal announced they would be expanding into Cuba, a country in which homosexuals and transgender people are imprisoned, tortured, and executed. PayPal only agreed to come to Charlotte in the first place after holding out for millions in corporate incentives. And under the current law that they are so strongly protesting, PayPal could have chosen their own corporate bathroom policies.
Im very proud of NC Lt. Governor Dan Forest who said: "If our action in keeping men out of women's bathrooms and showers protected the life of just one child or one woman from being molested or assaulted, then it was worth it. North Carolina will never put a price tag on the value of our children. They are precious and priceless. If a corporation wanting to do business in North Carolina does not see the worth of our children in the same light, then I wish them well as they do business somewhere else." He couldnt be more right! We need more politicians across the country with this kind of backbone. Pray for the NC governor, lieutenant governor, and legislators that they stand strong against the attacks of this wicked agenda.
Very good points!
BOYCOTT Paypal use. Do not buy through Paypal
Check out this list of where PayPal does business.
Somalia? Saudi Arabia? They flog & execute homosexuals there never mind what they’d do to a tranny.Hypocrisy thy name is PayPal!
Yeah, but the good Christian conservatives in NC won't cut your head off if you offend them.
PayPal has some weird “values”. If I used that crap, I’d boycott them.
Wow...he threw the frequent leftist position “if it saves the life of one child it is worth it” right back on them. Love it!
Stand tall Carolina! If Pay Pal was not posturing for the cameras, they would not allow any more customers from NC. Typical left wing BS.
The major corporations have gone over to the left. They willingly support marxist principles and candidates, ignoring the fact that marxists only want to nationalize their businesses.
Only problem is, the bank that issued your credit-card probably supports all the same crap.
The word needs to be spread in those 25 countries that Pay Pal supports the abomination of Homosexuality, and that all Muslims must be banned from doing any business with this vile Company.
Cut their financial throats. Then make them explain their choice of social advocacy to their investors.
We need to make support for Homosexuality, a financial suicide for every company that engages in it.
Difficult to believe we’re having this debate about men demanding to use the women’s room.
Pay Pal still does business in Saudi Arabia where they behead homosexuals.
Transexuals make up what percentage of the population? And we’re having a big fuss about them?
For what it’s worth, you can send and receive money using facebook for FREE.....and......it is much more secure than paypal.
I send $$$ to my kids all the time....I send money to my property manager....to my maintenance man.......it is instant, secure and best of all......FREE.
Paypal is going the way of the dino.
Cuba no longer imprisons gays and transexuals. You don’t want to know why.
Who here expected the lunatic left to practice what they preach?
Very simple, vote with your feet. Cancel your Paypal account — there are many other alternatives out there.
The STATE should go a step further, Because PAYPAL supports and does business in all these countries that Execute Homosexuals, we are BANNING them from Doing business in our State over their Support for Blatant Abusive Human Rights Violations.
I love the fact it happened to Charlotte where the City Council started this whole mess.
I am in NC and they are changing the signs on the dressing rooms at Wal-Mart!No little stick figures in dresses anymore.
I’m sure that was just a mistake...NOT.
That was an incredible response.
I’m so sick of these leftists who are so busy solving problems that don’t exist They’re too deluded and stupid to see the real damage they are causing.
I read once that the main difference between conservatives and liberals is that liberals believe people are basically good and conservatives believe they are basically bad (sinful)
Thus, a liberal, believing in the COEXIST model is busily destroying cultural and moral imperatives that limit our bad behavior, like gender specific bathrooms and are unable to understand that bad people will find ways to take advantage of them.
