It’s judgment day for North Carolina.

It has until the end of the day Monday to respond to the Department of Justice‘s claim that its transgender “bathroom law” violates the Civil Rights Act.

Gov. Pat McCrory told Fox News Sunday that the federal government is bullying the state.

He said the issue is bigger than one state or one governor, and he plans to respond with that in mind.

“This is no longer just a North Carolina issue,” he said. “This is a basic change of norms that we’ve used for decades throughout the United States of America and the Obama administration is now trying to change that norm — again not just in North Carolina, but they’re ordering this to every company in the United States of America — starting tomorrow I assume, or Tuesday.”

He slammed the government’s letter to North Carolina University telling them the law is in violation of federal law. Feds are “now telling every university that accepts federal funding that boys who may think they’re a girl can go into a girl’s locker room or restroom or shower facility, and that begins I assume tomorrow.”

McCrory went off on PayPal for nixing plans to expand into North Carolina while they do business in nations where gay people can be killed.

“This is the same PayPal company that did business with Sudan, did business with Iran, does business with Saudi Arabia, and they’re lecturing North Carolina because the majority of North Carolinians, I believe, think a man who’s a man ought to use the restroom that is on the door, and same thing applies to women,” he said.

According to Fox News

The governor said authorities have even publicly suggested they could “take away North Carolina’s money for roads and other transportation needs.”

“If it is challenged, I’m not going to risk any money for the state of North Carolina,” he told Chris Wallace.

The response on social media weighed heavily in favor of the Tar Heel State.
