I’ve driven through Tennessee a couple of times in my life and was met by some really friendly people wherever I stopped. Whether it be a gas station in the middle of the afternoon or a diner in the middle of the night.
Now, that being said the people of California can be some buzz killing sons of bitches if you’ll pardon my expression. They seem to think that everyone should act the same way that they act, or think the same way that they do and anyone that doesn’t should be done away with.
I saw something like this before in an old historical film once but it was really hard to understand because the narration was in German.
At the start of the year, radical leftist California Attorney General Xavier Becerra tried to blackmail a number of Republican-led states by banning state-funded visits to them over what he felt were their anti-gay ordinances.
In the case of Tennessee, Becerra resented that the state’s legislators had passed a religious liberty bill “allowing counselors to refer patients to other counselors if they disagree with a patient’s lifestyle,” according to The Daily News in Memphis
And so just because he disliked their law, Becerra felt he had the right to impose his will on them via blackmail.
What he neglected to consider before moving forward with his outrageous ban, though, is that the legislators in Tennessee have a zero tolerance policy toward leftist totalitarians. Enter the state’s Senate, which in February introduced a scathing resolution condemning California for its bullying tactics.
Dubbed Senate Joint Resolution 111, the stunning bill was signed into law by Gov. Bill Haslam on May 4.
The gist of it was quite simple: The resolution urged the governor, the state House and the state Senate to ban state-funded travel to states that first imposed bans on them, so that those states would “feel the pain and not Tennessee.” “BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that we urge the other forty-eight states to refrain from imposing their unfounded moral judgment on their sister states as California has done in order to prevent escalating foolishness,” the resolution further added.
