Illinois Democrats Push Racist, Sexist Bill to Force Women and People of Color on Corporate Boards

The Democrats in Illinois are intent upon using government force to inflict their diversity agenda on private businesses.

The Democrat-run state of Illinois has become a national for letting Hollywood con artist Jussie Smollett off the hook for staging a fake attack and blaming it on Trump supporters to invoke racial hate, and the state legislature is only adding to the disgrace as Democratic lawmakers invent new ways to discriminate.

State Rep. Chris Welch (D-Hillside) introduced House Bill 3394 that would force any publicly-traded corporation headquartered in the state of Illinois to hire at least one woman and at least one African-American on their board of directors starting in 2020. Hmmm…guess that means Asians and Mexicans are S.O.L in the diversity olympics!

HB3394 reads in part: “No later than the close of the 2020 calendar year, a publicly held domestic or foreign corporation whose principal executive offices, according to the corporation’s SEC 10-K form, are located in Illinois shall have a minimum of one female director and one African American director on its board of directors.”

The Secretary of State would publicly shame corporations who do not comply with the terms of the legislation by listing them online. The firms would be fined $300,000 if they do not submit to the racist, sexist provisions of the bill. One Republican legislator spoke up against the Democratic majority to oppose this madness.

“We are destroying the ability for our state to grow,” State Rep. Tony McCombie (R-Savanna) said.

This, of course, prompted an ignorant, disrespectful response from Welch – the particularly low IQ Democratic lawmaker who drafted the bill.

“I’m not going to be ashamed to stand here and fight for the people that sent me here,” he said. “Ashamed to fight for African-Americans to have a right in a room? Are you kidding me?”

The bill passed the House by a 61-27 vote on Friday. It is expected to be discussed further in the Senate where possible amendments will be added to the bill. More mandates may be added to satisfy the whims of other leftist victim groups who are desperate to leverage their status for government handouts.

If ultimately successful, Illinois will be following in the footsteps of the bankrupt liberal wasteland of California. They passed a similar law pertaining only to women back in 2018.

“The time has come,” said California State Sen. Hannah-Beth Jackson (D-Santa Barbara) who introduced the sexist legislation. “We need to make sure our business entities are more productive and more profitable. That’s exactly what appointing women to these boards will do.”

Jackson, who was a career attorney before jumping on the public gravy train, masquerades as a pro-business to mask her identity politics agenda. If Illinois isn’t careful, they will become the California of the Midwest if they continue to pass bills like HB3394.

HUGE: 5th Circuit Court Affirms Texas Abortion Ban During Coronavirus Pandemic

A big league victory for sanity.

Published

on

The 5th Circuit Court has issued a decision allowing the state of Texas to ban elective abortions during the coronavirus pandemic, as medical supplies are in high demand to treat victims of the illness.

The panel made the ruling by a 2-1 margin on Tuesday. The majority cited “the escalating spread of COVID-19, and the state’s critical interest in protecting the public health” in making their decision.

Judges Stuart Kyle Duncan, a Trump appointee, and Jennifer Elrod, an appointee of George W. Bush, made up the majority while Judge James Dennis, a Clinton appointee, dissented with the ruling.

“That settled rule allows the state to restrict, for example, one’s right to peaceably assemble, to publicly worship, to travel, and even to leave one’s home,” the majority wrote. “The right to abortion is no exception.”

The panel also determined that the lower court erred when they refused to apply the Supreme Court’s test to determine the constitutionality of abortion restrictions. The SCOTUS test pertains to the legal review of weighing the burden on a woman’s access to abortion services against the medical benefits of the restrictions on abortion.

The majority ultimately determined that the lower court “failed to balance (the Texas restriction’s) temporary burdens on abortion against its benefits in thwarting a public health crisis.”

“The bottom line is this: when faced with a society-threatening epidemic, a state may implement emergency measures that curtail constitutional rights so long as the measures have at least some “real or substantial relation” to the public health crisis,” Judge Duncan and Judge Elrod wrote in their majority opinion.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton issued a guidance last month declaring that all abortions “not medically necessary to preserve the life or health” of the woman would be considered a “non-essential” medical service throughout the coronavirus pandemic. Doctors who refuse to comply and murder babies in the womb despite the order are subject to “penalties of up to $1,000 or 180 days of jail time.”

The Democrat on the panel is dismayed with the opinion of the majority and would have preferred to keep the baby-mutilating industry going in Texas while coronavirus poses a serious threat to public safety.

“In a time where panic and fear already consume our daily lives, the majority’s opinion inflicts further panic and fear on women in Texas by depriving them, without justification, of their constitutional rights, exposing them to the risks of continuing an unwanted pregnancy, as well as the risks of travelling to other states in search of time-sensitive medical care,” Dennis wrote.

Because of this ruling, Texas is permitted to make common-sense decisions to conserve medical supplies during an unprecedented crisis.
