HB2- McCrory calls Values Coalition's business support list a big FAIL, calls for out of state support for the indefensible



More proof that KeepNCsafe.org's directory of 73 out of over 821,000 businesses in North Carolina willing to support HB2 in public, has been about as helpful and persuasive as a bucket of warm spit: Governor McCrory called a press conference today asking for real backup for his goofball lawsuit to uphold HB2:
“That is why this morning, I have asked a federal court to clarify what the law actually is,” McCrory said. “I anticipate our own legislature, other private sector entities from throughout the United States and possibly other states to join us in seeking this clarification because this is not just a North Carolina issue, this is a national issue.”
North Carolina Values Coalition, which ran the Daily Discriminators List at its KeepNCSafe.org site from March 29 to May 2, also kept a list of faint-hearted spitemongers who want to turn customers away but are afraid to stand alongside their beliefs in the public arena where they do business. They claimed 401 businesses support HB2 but never provided evidence of more than 332.

Their public list, which was rolled out March 29 with 55 names, only added 18 in the month of April. At that rate, it would have taken them 1405 years and eight months to sign up all the businesses in the Tarheel State. Little wonder, then, that they pulled it down after a month and no longer promote it as the great success they claimed.


Just as a shopping reminder, here’s the complete list, to date, by town and city, of businesses that have pledged to discriminate in all the ways HB2 allows:

NOTE: This list is taken, verbatim, from the press release of the North Carolina Values Coalition, as amended by them. City locations are taken from public records, in order to aid readers in avoiding doing business with companies who support the discriminatory House Bill 2, passed by the North Carolina General Assembly in March, 2016, and to aid readers in not confusing them with other, similarly named businesses that might exist in or out of North Carolina.

It is also intended to spare customers unexpected denials of service should they happen into a business that has declared its support of HB 2 without making it public otherwise.

The list is not intended to advocate for, or encourage, any form of rude behavior toward any business. They and their owners are entitled to their views, and they have the law on their side. If anything, this list will assist them in their desire to let North Carolinians know that the support HB 2, as the North Carolina Values Coalition press release states. If any business has been omitted that wishes to be added, please contact us. If any business listed wishes to support HB 2's legalization of minority group discrimination and still seeks the trade of any group the law allows discrimination against, kindly forward an explanation of how you get to that juxtaposition of ideas and we will gladly append it.
