The tolerant State of California is happily imposing travel restrictions on its own citizens citing political correctness. A new California State statute prohibits state agencies (including state universities) from funding travel to a number of states - including Tennessee and looking to include Kansas, Mississippi, and North Carolina - that have laws that "discriminate" against the LGBTQ community.
How far the State of California has devolved from their tolerant roots. It used to be that people moved to California for the freedom it afforded as one of the last bastions of "hands-off" government. Today, California has some of the most outrageous taxes and societal mandates in the United States.
This travel ban, while not as draconian, stinks of the "where are your papers" days of the Third Reich. But how far are they really from that point? Certainly, this denies some students the same taxpayer-funded privileges of other students who do not travel to the targeted states for educational purposes. Isn't this a true form of discrimination?
The ideologues who control California's government have made it the laughingstock of the 50 States. In fact, many who live outside the PC State of California are quietly cheering their efforts at a CalExit. If they succeed, then we will witness how "ideological" they remain in the face of not US federal dollars to support their ridiculous initiatives.
