Dan Forest on Civil Rights

 

 


Opposed repeal of transgender "bathroom bill"

Q: Support HB2, bill requiring transgender people to use bathroom corresponding to the sex on their birth certificate?

Dan Forest: Yes. Opposed repeal of bill: Called pressure from NCAA "a new form of corporate extortion from an unaccountable, out-of-state, non-elected, tax-exempt organization."

Roy Cooper: No. Opposed, called it a "dark cloud." Signed compromise repeal.

Opponents of voter ID law racist and stand for fraud

Forest suggested in an interview that those opposed to a recently blocked state voter ID law, including the state's NAACP chapter, were racist. "To suggest that people that are minorities don't know how to get an ID and don't know how to use one-- I think that's far more racist than saying that this type of bill is racist," Forest said. Forest claimed that the only reason anyone would oppose the voter ID law would be because they "stand for fraud."

Supreme Court gay marriage ruling a "power grab"

The U.S. Supreme Court, in a 5-4 decision, has ruled that all states must recognize same-sex marriages. Following are some reactions from people across North Carolina: Lt. Gov. Dan Forest:

"The power grab by a majority of the Supreme Court is a full-on assault on the founding principles of democratic process, federalism, separation of powers, the voice of the people and judicial restraint. Under these decisions, the rights and responsibilities of the states and the people are gone, and the precedent is set that non-elected judges can play super-legislator on whatever issue they want, however they want and whenever they want. When our elected officials step over the line, we the people can vote them out of office. When unelected judges step over the line, we are without recourse. No longer does it matter what the citizen-elected legislature says. It matters not what the citizen-elected executives say. All that matters is what a majority of nine people in a courtroom says."

Strongly anti-gender identity, according to AFA survey.

Forest opposes the AFA survey question on gender identity

The AFA inferred whether candidates agree or disagree with the statement, 'I support adding sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression as protected classes in non-discrimination laws'? Self-description: (American Family Association helps produce iVoterGuides): "Grounded in God; rooted in research"; they "thoroughly investigate candidates"; when they cannot "evaluate with confidence, they receive an 'Insufficient' rating" (& we exclude)
