San Francisco Proves ‘Liberal Acceptance’ is a Myth; Blacklists 22 States Over Abortion Laws
Liberals love to demand they are the party of love and acceptance, often chastising Republicans for being “close-minded” or “full of antiquated hatred.” Although it’s easy to claim, their actions rarely match up with their words. In essence, “woke” progressives are anything but.
Bongino.com reported on the issue was first taken up by San Francisco lawmakers. Mayor London Breed and Supervisor Vallie Brown “announced the measure last week” reported Fox News. The measure forbids San Francisco city employees to take work trips or do any business with companies in 22 states with “restrictive abortion laws.” In a statement, Breed said:
Every day in this country, women’s reproductive rights are threatened, and we have to fight back. Just as we restricted spending with states that have laws that discriminate against LGBTQ people, we are standing up against states that put women’s health at risk and that are actively working to limit reproductive freedoms…by limited travel and contracting with certain states, we are sending a clear message to states that disregard the right to abortion.
The ban goes into effect very soon, on January 1, 2020. Breed’s office noted “Although tax revenue from San Francisco alone may not be sufficient to encourage states to rethink their laws, if other cities and states follow San Francisco’s lead, the financial pressure might be enough to prompt policy changes.”
Liberals often rely on a blacklist, boycott and ban mentality. Instead of respecting America’s freedom of speech and the right to have one’s own opinions, such as in a democracy, liberals prefer to reign down on citizens with dictator-type policymaking.
