He's absolutely right. Have you ever seen the NRA mobilize such support as the gays have? Corporations, entertainers, politicians, at least one state, several local governments, and even the Obama admin is seeking ways to punish NC.

Zitat
Under attack for signing the controversial anti-LGBT law known as HB2, North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory (R) said Sunday that a gay rights advocacy group is more powerful than the National Rifle Association.

"The Human Rights Council. My gosh, they're more powerful than the NRA," McCrory told Chuck Todd on NBC's "Meet the Press," alluding to the nation's premier gun lobby. "And they have millions of dollars, which makes me want to overturn [Citizens] United, because I don't know who their donors are, either. But they are putting on a lot of pressure, instead of having good dialogue."

Despite the group's power, McCrory didn't have its name right; it appears he was alluding to the Human Rights Campaign, which lobbies on civil rights for the LGBT community. The group has been a leading critic of the new law.

McCrory has been battered politically for approving HB2, better known as the Charlotte bathroom bill. The law requires that transgender people use public restrooms that correspond with the gender on their birth certificate, which LGBT groups say enshrines discrimination. The bill also prevents local governments from passing their own laws that might apply to bathrooms in private businesses.

Very bizarre. All these self-righteous phonies doing business with Moslem countries criticizing NC for requiring people to use the bathroom that is shown on their birth certificate. Requiring that is the great civil rights struggle of our day. To such a pathetic level have we descended.
