Oh, boo hoo!

Former governor Pat McCrory of North Carolina vigorously pushed through the infamous bathroom bill HB2 in his state that banned transgender people from using the bathroom that corresponded to their gender presentation. That triggered a nationwide backlash, with organizations canceling events in that state. He then narrowly lost his re-election to a Democrat, which meant that he had to find other work. Now he is whining that people are being mean to him because of his actions while governor and that it is hurting his job prospects.

“People are reluctant to hire me, because, ‘oh my gosh, he’s a bigot,’” McCrory explained to the newspaper. “Which is the last thing I am.”

McCrory said that while he’s been considered for part-time teaching positions at some universities, campuses have been reluctant to hire him over fears that he might spark a backlash among students, who would then respond with disruptive protests.

“That’s not the way our American system should operate – having people purged due to political thought,” he complained.

McCrory’s complaints echo similar comments he made recently during a podcast interview in which he claimed that “if you disagree with the politically correct thought police on this new definition of gender, you’re a bigot, you’re the worst of evil.”

These bigots are so sensitive to their own feelings while completely unconcerned about the feelings of others.

McCrory should not be surprised that people are reluctant to hire someone who is so obsessed with other people’s genitalia and what bathrooms they use. He is really quite creepy.

    I wouldn’t hire him to teach anywhere. Not because of fear of disruptive protests from the students. Because of fear of what disgusting things Pat McCrory would do to the students.

    As you suggest, anyone who is that obsessed with people’s genitals and bathroom usage is way too creepy to be trusted..

    And he’s not helping himself any by whining about “politically correct though police” … all that does is prove that he’s not remorseful about the harm he has already done.

    But I’m sure he could find work in Texas — I hear they’re passing a bathroom bill (just like his bill) this afternoon. No political correctness there!

    It may be the last thing, but it’s still on the list.

    I’ve wondered more than once why no one (at least that I’ve read or heard so far) has called out President Trump when he uses the “I’m the least X person you know” line.

    That may be true, but that means that the President is still X.

    I’m certain there are openings in the fruit-picking industry…

    (1) Employment on desert islands is limited; and (2) The fruit isn’t poisonousness. Usually.

    No bigot thinks of themselves as a bigot. Likewise, the only people who think of themselves as evil are cartoonish Bond villains. I’m sure that people like Paul Ryan or Steve Bannon don’t wake up, gleefully rub their hands together, and think “What evil shall I do today?” That doesn’t mean that they’re not evil, of course, it just means that they either lack empathy or are very good at rationalizing and self-deception. McCrory is no different.

    Last, but certainly not least.
