Twitter, Facebook, and other social media were abuzz with “facts” put out by the New York Times, The Washington Post, WRAL-TV, and other outlets. They claim that the old North State is losing its brand identity. Why?
Our state is no longer “progressive”. In the last election, North Carolina citizens voted most liberals out of office.
We are not as “progressive” as we once were, thanks to over a century of Democratic rule. Six month ago, for the first time ever, Republicans took control of every branch of government in North Carolina. Citizens were tired of it and wanted to try something else. Apparently, our liberal friends do not realize this.
To the liberal media, this was a true horror. Bruce Mildwurf could barely contain his glee, reporting this evening on WRAL’s 6:00 p.m. news, that even Fox News was reporting on the liberal “Moral Monday” protests. Apparently he doesn’t realize that Fox has a policy of “we report, you decide”.
“Would the losing team in the Super Bowl go protest outside the winning team’s locker room, because they lost the game,” state GOP Chairman Claude Pope told the national media.
State Sen. Thom Goolsby explained that Democrats over spent and left North Carolina in a financial mess. ”Our job has been to come in here and clean up.”
Meanwhile, a liberal activist retorted that “this is only the beginning and legislators should prepare for more protests…” until the next election.
Statewide liberal groups, like Planned Parenthood, the ACLU, and the NAACP have organized weekly protests but so have conservative groups.
Let us hear what you think!
