BATTLE BREWING: Texas Gov Tweets Out Taunt After NFL Threatens Them With THIS

The NFL is now threatening Texas that they will no longer hold Super Bowls there if the state goes forward in keeping men out of women's restrooms.

Texas recently put forward the Texas Privacy Act, SB6. Shares Life Site News, "Under the bill, a citizen could incur a civil penalty if he or she enters an opposite-sex public restroom in government schools, building and universities."

The bill simply protects women and girls from having biological men in their bathrooms, showers, and locker rooms. As Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick said, it's just about common sense:

"The people of Texas elected us to stand up for common sense, common decency, and public safety. This legislation is supported by an overwhelming majority, in every poll, of Texans."

But major companies and celebrities are teaming up against Texas to pressure them to bow to the LGBT agenda of confusing gender and sexuality. American Airlines, Lady Gaga, and Alicia Keys are some of those protesting SBG.

NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said last week: "If a proposal that is discriminatory or inconsistent with our values were to become law (in Texas), that would certainly be a factor considered when thinking about awarding future events."

"The NFL embraces inclusiveness," McCarthy said. "We want all fans to feel welcomed at our events, and NFL policies prohibit discrimination based on age, gender, race, religion, sexual orientation, or any other improper standard."

Thankfully, Texas has one tough governor. Governor Greg Abbott tweeted out this strong taunt in response to the NFL's threat:

Abbott was referencing how Tom Brady was sidelined for 4 games last season due to Deflate-gate but ended up winning the Super Bowl.

Abbott went on to oppose the NFL in an interview with Glenn Beck: “The NFL is walking on thin ice right here. The NFL needs to concentrate on playing football and get the heck out of politics,” Abbott told Beck.

“We don’t care what the NFL thinks, and certainly what their political policies are, because they are not a political arm of the state of Texas or the United States of America.”

What do you think of the NFL's threat to Texas? And what do you think of Abbott's response? Let us hear what you think in the Comments! Thank you!
