And that would be? A TOTAL FUCKING INTOLERANCE OF LGBT.
JACKSON, Miss. (AP) -- Under fire from the governor and many Republican legislators, the Mississippi Department of Education now says it won't follow new federal guidance on use of bathrooms and locker rooms by transgender students.[..]
Asserting that federal officials are trying to "blackmail" Mississippi, the senators wrote that, "Dr. Wright made the decision to usurp the board's authority and unilaterally issue the policy decision to acquiesce to the illegal demands of the federal government. For this, the superintendent must be held accountable."
That followed a letter Tuesday by 11 Republican House members asking Wright to reverse the department's position or resign.

Hmmm, similarities? Let's see: Marginalize LGBT, check! Threatening to get your way, check! Oppressing women and negating their position. The only thing missing here is beheading.
Yep, America, the melting pot. We're not against adopting the very worst the world has to offer because it suits us.
