We’d missed that California had already banned state-funded travel to Alabama, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, and Texas over so-called anti-LGBTQ legislation. Now the state has added Arkansas, Florida, Montana, North Dakota, and West Virginia. California has long seemed to want to cut itself off from the rest of the country (there was an actual effort at secession), and now it’s doing it, one state at a time.
Florida, Arkansas, Montana, North Dakota and West Virginia join the travel ban list due to anti-transgender laws.https://t.co/8eZsi6kbKb

If your state isn’t on the list you’re doing it wrong

Shouldn't this be welcome news?

Hmmm. The national divorce seems to be moving right along

Good. We don't need anymore crazy liberals coming to Florida.

It’s state funded travel. Who wants state officials from California traveling to their state in the first place

Except for football games. Watch how all this magically disappears if any state school makes the playoffs and has to travel to Alabama.

Politico notes that colleges “have used private funds to continue traveling to banned states for athletic competition.”
California is missing a huge opportunity. Many states would pay good money for the privilege of being put on a list of places Californians aren’t allowed to go.

Can we ban them from moving here?

We just need ~30 more states on that list and we can finally contain the insanity that is California.

Excellent! Keep going.

No one wants communist-funded Californian government officials skulking about anyway.

As a native Oregonian and former Washingtonian I know the devastating effects Californians can have on your state. Now, as an Alabamian, I will work to keep Californians out of my new state.

Craziness. The insane woke idiots took over the government of California.
— Newsgatherer (@GroupToStopHate) June 28, 2021
Hopefully other states see this and jump on board. Maybe they will stay in the ruins that used to be California then they won't be spreading their ignorance around the country.

How is this in any way a punishment?
