Los Angeles City Council Creates Republican Contractors Blacklist

This is wildly illegal and un-American. It’s also the new normal. Especially in the one-party state of California where democracy goes to die. And it will be defended by Democrat judges. The only way to fight back against it may be with the same treatment.

Blue cities are now openly creating political blacklists and making them law.

In a unanimous decision, the Los Angeles City Council on Tuesday passed an ordinance that requires companies who do work with the city to disclose if they have any ties to the National Rifle Association.

The ordinance – which follows similar ones passed by the council requiring contractors to disclose any involvement in the construction of President Trump’s proposed border wall and any past investments in or profits from slavery – has already drawn protests from gun rights activists and threats of a lawsuit.

The wall was at least a boycott based on a specific contracting project. Support for the NRA is a purely ideological boycott. It’s no different than Republicans refusing to give contracts to anyone who donates to the ACLU or the Southern Poverty Law Center.

It’s the use of tax monies gathered from, among others, Republicans, to punish Republican contractors and reward Democrat contractors. Diversity quotas were already being used to do that, but now this is corruption with a touch of McCarthyism.
