Palmetto State latest to upset LGBT defender CA

AG Becerra in pride paradeSouth Carolina is the latest state to disappoint Democrats in California, this time over a law protecting faith-based adoption agencies.  

California Attorney General Xavier Becerra announced April 2 The Golden State will prohibit state-funded travel to The Palmetto State.

Becerra (pictured at right) was apparently upholding a 2017 California law that prohibits state-funded travel to states with laws that California deems discriminatory to “sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression.”

Joshua Putnam of the Palmetto Family Council predicts the boycott won’t do any harm to his state.

“This is just political brownie point-scoring,” he says, “for a very liberal attorney general in California.”

Becerra, a former U.S. congressman, has faithfully checked all of the liberal boxes in his state including a 100 percent rating from Human Rights Campaign, the powerful homosexual-rights lobbying group.

After huge gains in last year’s elections, California itself is firmly in the grasp of Democratic leaders who now hold all statewide offices and enjoy lopsided majorities in the state Assembly and state Senate.

In the U.S. Congress, Democrats hold 46 of 53 House seats and both Senate seats.

Despite the far-left views of Democrats, a Democratic strategist told The Los Angeles Times last year that Californians are “pretty libertarian" on social issues which he described as “the view that government should leave us alone.”

Yet South Carolina joins nine other states --- Alabama, Kansas, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee and Texas --- that have upset California leaders and are now no-travel states.
