The government in California has a law on the books that’s proving just how hypocritical leftists can be when it comes time to appropriately apply their ideology consistently across the board.
By now we’re all familiar with the fact that liberals absolutely loathe Trump’s travel ban on Muslim-majority nations, as they’ve made quite clear in the media and in the government. Such action, according to them, displays intolerance for the viewpoint of others and is a form of bigotry.
Ironically, California fails to see the hypocrisy when they have such a rule, enacted in 2015, that forbids state-funded travel to states that “discriminate” against folks based on sexual orientation.
Now the state is expanding the ban.
A California gov’t rule that “forbids state-funded travel to states that, since June 26, 2015, have enacted laws discriminating against people on the basis of sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression” has been extended and expanded:

How can one be opposed to a travel ban because it’s considered “bigoted” based on a person’s worldview, then turn around and be supportive of a similar ban aimed at people who disagree with your worldview, and expect to be taken seriously?
At least in the first scenario, the ban is designed to help keep people safe from terrorist attacks and to motivate Muslim-majority nations to cut ties with radicalized organizations, while partnering with us to shut them down.
There’s a direct benefit for every citizen in this country. It’s not to punish Muslims, but to wake up foreign governments and alert them to the consequences for supporting groups that kill innocent people, including other Islamic believers.
If only liberals would take a look in the mirror, examine their own belief system and the methods they use to transmit their message, perhaps they’d see the truth.
