Robert Pittenger calls out NBA ‘hypocrisy’ for doing business in China, but not North Carolina

Rep. Robert Pittenger is accusing the National Basketball Association of “hypocrisy” for pulling the 2017 All-Star Game from Charlotte, North Carolina, but continuing to do business in China.

In a letter sent Thursday to NBA Commissioner Adam Silver, Mr. Pittenger said he recently met with constituencies from China, who told him about the government’s policy of “forcefully harvesting organs” and regular “oppression of religious minorities.”

“Meanwhile, the NBA will start selling tickets for preseason games in China next week,” Mr. Pittenger, a North Carolina Republican, said in the letter.

“Is the NBA implying that China’s abhorrent of basic human rights is acceptable, but North Carolina saying men shouldn’t use the girls’ locker room is a bridge too far?” he asked. “What is the NBA’s true priority? The unmistakable hypocrisy is clear to me.”

Ryan T. Anderson, senior research fellow at the Heritage Foundation, said the NBA’s decision is yet another example of “Big Business shoving its set of values on a state that has taken a responsible approach to the sensitive issue involving bathrooms.”

    I for one will not watch another NBA game. Why should I waste my time watching a bunch of men making untold Millions for playing basketball. They are not benefiting me and I have no interest in which team wins or loses. I prefer College basketball whee these young men represent a University, the students, the fans and give them a chance to get an education for as long as they stay in school

    If they want to find out where the NBA stands on this queer BS, let the players make the commercials for this bathroom sh$t! Bet U couldn’t get ONE PLAYER t do it, this is just to kiss the black boys a$$ in the big house! The ratings are at a all time low for the NBA, they need to make much wiser decisions!

    Yet another example of anti-American activity foisted on us by a supposedly “American” organization. They wish to be politically involved which is great. I hope that their fan base is equally politically involved and return their season tickets and find something else to do.
