TAB Sells Out to LGBT for $130,000 – Boycott the 57 Houston Businesses that Want Men in Women’s Bathrooms
The liberal Texas Association of Business (TAB), headed by its CEO, Jeff Moseley, received $130,000 from LGBT individuals and groups to oppose SB 6 in the Regular Session and now SB 3 in the Special Session, according to Empower Texas investigative reports. Moseley and the TAB have spearheaded the effort to convince Texans that somehow by not allowing men, who claim to be women, into women’s bathrooms , companies will leave Texas. Moseley’s and the TAB’s position is preposterous on its face. Individuals and companies are flocking to Texas because of our strong, conservative family values and our support of free enterprise.
When it seems strange that a business group, like the TAB, would support the agenda of the LGBT, all you have to do is follow the money trail.
Businesses that put dollars before the safety of women and girls should be boycotted.
A meager group of 57 business executives and law firm partners in Houston recently sent a letter to Governor Abbott requesting that he back down on his support of Senate Bill 3, The Women’ Privacy Act, “No Men in Women’s Bathrooms.”
According to the 2010 Census report there were 122,517 businesses in the greater Houston area. That number has significantly increased with the tremendous growth in the greater Houston area.
Only 57 business executives in all the greater Houston area could be found to sign this letter opposing SB 3 to Gov. Abbott. What a joke! They sure do not speak for the overwhelming majority of hard working, right thinking business owners who care about their children and who want no part of allowing deviant men and boys to enter women’s and girl’s public and school bathrooms, showers and locker rooms. These fat cat corporate executives are living in a different world than you or me. It makes you wonder with whom they associate and what they spend their time reading or watching. What kind of moral compass do they have?
SB 3 would prohibit biological males, including registered sex offenders, who claim that they are women, from entering women’s public and school bathrooms, showers, and locker-rooms. This position is supported by over 82% of Republican primary voters (RPVs).
The signatories of this letter include Bob Harvey, President and CEO of the Greater Houston Partnership. As you may recall, Mr. Harvey helped lead the failed effort by former Mayor Annise Parker, in Houston, to allow men to enter women’s bathrooms, showers, and locker-rooms. In 2015, Houston voters overwhelmingly rejected Annise Parker’s and Mr. Harvey’s vision for Houston, soundly rejecting the Houston Bathroom Ordinance 61% to 39%. Clearly, Mr. Harvey did not get the message and has taken his liberal agenda state-wide. Other signatories of the letter include John Nau, President and CEO of Silver Eagle Distributing (Budweiser), also a supporter of Parker’s Bathroom Ordinance and a long-time financial supporter of liberal Texas House Speaker Joe Straus.
Also signing the letter was Lynne Liberato, a Partner with the law firm Haynes and Boone, LLP. As you may recall, Haynes and Boone represented Mayor Parker, pro bono, without fee, in the effort to prevent Houston residents from voting on Mayor Parker’s Bathroom Ordinance. Thankfully, the Texas Supreme Court rejected their arguments and allowed the citizens to vote. The list of signatories also includes CEOs and Presidents from Chevron North America E & P, Andrews Kurth Kenyon, LLP, BBVA Compass, Bracewell LLP, Calpine Corporation, ExxonMobil Global Services Company, Dow Chemical Company, Halliburton, Group 1 Automotive, Metro, Shell Oil Company and others. The letter to Gov. Abbott with the signatories’ names can be found below.
Having 57 business executives sign the letter to Governor Abbott is a part of this dishonest strategy to block SB 3. It is the same liberal lie that the corporate elites tried to deceive Houston voters in 2015 when the Houston Bathroom Ordinance was up for a vote. Houstonians didn’t buy it then and Texans don’t buy it now.
The TAB, the Greater Houston Partnership, and many of the same executives signing the recent letter to Governor Abbott, said we would lose the Houston Super Bowl. The 2016 Super Bowl remained in Houston and it was a huge success. These same naysayers said we would lose the NCAA Final Four. That tournament was held in Houston and was another success. These false prognosticators said we would lose convention business. Instead, the number of conventions coming to Houston has grown from 2015 levels.
This form of economic terrorism only works if people buy into the lies that the liberal alt-left and its big business allies promote. Instead, these businessmen and companies should realize that good, solid families will move to Texas when Texas enacts legislation to protect the safety and privacy of its women and girls.
Surely these business executives don’t want men and boys, who fantasize that they are women, to enter their wives’, daughters’, granddaughters’, mothers’, and sisters’ bathrooms, showers and locker rooms, do they? What does it tell you about the character of a person who does not have the desire to protect the privacy and safety of women and girls?
These business executives’ actions tell the story. They would choose dollars over women’s and girls’ privacy.
Let make one thing clear, the TAB and its president, Jeff Moseley, do not speak for all businesses. In fact, thousands of business owners stood with us during the Houston Bathroom Ordinance fight, and tens of thousands of independent business owners across Texas stand with us in supporting SB 3, the Women’s Privacy Act, “No Men in Women’s Bathrooms!”
Moseley and the TAB only speak for corporate elites who believe that the safety and privacy of our wives, daughters, and granddaughters should take a back seat to the LGBT agenda for our state and country. Moseley and the TAB only speak for those who want Texas to become more like California.
By opposing SB 3, “No Men in Women’s Bathrooms!”, which keeps biological males, who claim to be women, including registered sex offenders, out of women’s bathrooms, showers, and locker rooms, the TAB and the business executives who signed and sent the letter to Gov. Abbott, opposing SB 3, have decided to publicly wage a war on Texas’ families and conservative Christians and those of other faiths who don’t subscribe to their secular world view.
Like Target, whose recent bathroom policy resulted in huge financial losses, these publicly traded corporations have chosen to reject the traditional, faith-based family values of their stockholders and consumers who purchase their products and services.
Enough is enough! It is time for us to stand up to these corporate bullies and boycott their businesses and let them know we will not sit idly by while they work to transform our state to fit their immoral and dangerous vision.
When these businessmen chose to sign onto the anti-SB 3 letter to Governor Abbott, they and their companies made a conscious decision to thumb their nose at you, Governor Abbott, Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick, the twenty-one out of thirty-one senators who voted to pass SB 3, and the thousands of Texas’ pastors and their congregations who have publicly supported SB 3, and millions of Texas voters who want to protect the privacy and safety of women and girls. Many of these companies are not based in Texas, but benefit from our purchases of their products. These businessmen are trying to bring California values to Texas. Remember, it was California and its liberal Governor Jerry Brown who have chosen to boycott Texas by refusing to allow state funded travel to Texas because Houston and the Texas Senate want to protect women’s and girl’s privacy and safety in public and school bathrooms, showers and locker rooms.
Below is a copy of the letter sent to Governor Abbott and a list with contact information for all the CEOs/Presidents who signed the letter. Please contact these companies and tell them you will not purchase their products or their services until they reverse their position and support SB 3, the Women’s Privacy Act, “No Men in Women’s Bathrooms!” Let them know that, unlike them, you will stand for the safety and privacy of our wives, daughters, and granddaughters, mothers and sisters.
What we support in SB 3, “No Men in Women’s Bathrooms!”, is not rocket science, it is just plain common sense. Unfortunately, there is no epidemic of common sense occurring with this paltry group of 57 businessmen who signed the letter to Gov. Abbott.
I am convinced that your bold, principled stand will make a difference!
All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for you and me to do nothing.
“Through God we shall do valiantly, and it is He who will tread down our adversaries.”
