Paypal amazes with a highly hypocritical stance

Don’t you don’t just hate it when people make a fuss about the small things and ignore the big things? PayPal, which recently announced that it would be expanding into Cuba, has refused to go to North Carolina. The reason they have given is that  they are against a law that was passed to protect women and children from sexual predators. The law stops men from using women’s restrooms and locker rooms.

Congressman Robert Pittenger made a great point yesterday: “PayPal does business in 25 countries where homosexual behavior is illegal, including 5 countries where the penalty is death, yet they object to the North Carolina legislature overturning a misguided ordinance about letting men in to the women’s bathroom? Perhaps PayPal would like to try and clarify this seemingly very hypocritical position.”

PayPal currently operate in countries like Yemen, Saudi Arabia and Nigeria. The country that they will soon be expanding into, Cuba, has imprisoned homosexuals and transgender people and has tortured and executed them. By contrast, North Carolina won’t let transgender, biological men use women’s bathrooms.

I think Paypal need to watch this instructional video and get a grip. One of these thing is not like the other.


I’m very proud of NC Lt. Governor Dan Forest who said: “If our action in keeping men out of women’s bathrooms and showers protected the life of just one child or one woman from being molested or assaulted, then it was worth it. North Carolina will never put a price tag on the value of our children. They are precious and priceless. If a corporation wanting to do business in North Carolina does not see the worth of our children in the same light, then I wish them well as they do business somewhere else.”

    The left are always whining about craven multinationals that care only about money. Such multinationals undoubtedly have considerable political power. As long as they use that power to make the best return possible for their shareholders (within the law, obviously) then I have no problem with it.

    These lefty multinationals like Paypal / Facebook / etc scare the crap out of me. Give a lefty some power and the first thing they will do is try and control your life.

      Most multinationals are very sensitive to even mild issues like this and bend easily, The left are not against the multinationals having huge power at all, they just want to control it themselves.

    I do most of my business through PayPal as most of my trade is in North America. I use PayPal a lot, in fact I’ve been building codes in merchant services all day and have just had a look in here for a break. If PayPal wants to withdraw its plan for a Charlotte expansion, that’s fine with me. I suspect the real reason involves another city that is more financially viable for PayPal and they are just shooting out excuses, we’ll see. These guys generate huge profits and if the Charlotte expansion was going to give them that, they wouldn’t be going anywhere.

    These people who are oh so opposed to politics and business mixing, seem to be incapable of stopping themselves mixing politics with business. Look how well that’s worked out for #Twatter.
