Re: “Farmworkers Blast Governor Cooper for Signing a Bill They Say Hurts Their Ability to Unionize

During his campaign, Cooper sold out refugees by agreeing with Trump and McCrory that there should be a halt to accepting refugees from Syria.

After taking office, he threw LGBTs under the bus with the so-called "HB2 compromise" that wasn't even supported by many members of his own party.

Now, he's sacrificing union members for political expediency.

Simply shrugging, saying "Oh bother" in a Winnie the Pooh voice, and doing whatever McCrory would do isn't what we voted for.

Cooper needs to simply run as a Republican in the next election or get knocked out in the primaries by someone who actually is going to act in the interests of the citizens of the state.

Re: “Don’t Call Them Deplorable: I Went to the Franklin Graham Rally and Was Called a ‘F**king Sodomite’ and a ‘Jew-boy’

To evangelicals trying to make excuses about the behavior seen by this reporter I just have one thing to say - What these people said is simply a less polite way of saying what Franklin Graham has been advocating for years with his ministry.

Re: “Ben and Jerry's Debuted its New Flavor at North Carolina Central University Today

Obviously, this is an attempt by the lamestream media to promote a liberal agenda to detract us from genuine libtard voter fraud so that we cannot elect true American-born patriots that will deal with Hillary's emails, Benghazi, Obama's birth certificate, Michelle Obama's transgenderism, Obama's plan to take our Second Amendment sanctioned weapons and force us to drive gold-cart SmartCars because of climate change propaganda. And privacy in our bathrooms.

Wake up, sheeple!

(Just helping ProudlyUnaffiliated and Dude some keystrokes.)

Re: “The Morning Roundup: Anonymous Attacks N.C. Government Over HB 2; and Fed Funding Loss Could Really Hurt

"Crashing state websites," I should say. (Damned auto-correct.)

Meh. If Anonymous wanted to impress me, they'd come up with some incriminating documents on Moore, Berger, and Company. Craving state websites is just a normal day in the McCrory administration.

Re: “NC Chamber of Commerce: HB 2 Is a "Distraction," Match NC Anti-Discrimination Law With Federal Law

Soldier is basically saying this is a morale and religious issue and doesn't see how it can be compared to Civil Rights issues.

Laws about separate accommodations for Blacks, such as water fountains, didn't really seem substantial at the time. Both Blacks and whites had access to their own water fountains, right?

Water fountain laws were symbols of a larger pattern of discrimination and violence against Blacks and other minorities. They were one piece of a larger puzzle about equality.

Similarly, the "bathroom" law is purely symbolic. It's unenforceable. However, did you know that a transgender person is murdered every 29 hours just because of who they are?

The "bathroom" issue masks a larger pattern of violence and discrimination happening against transgender people simply because they don't fit with a particular religious view that sees them as "sinful" or "confused".

I'll stand up for your right to your Christian beliefs any day. But I'll be damned if I allow your beliefs to quash the religious belief - or non belief - of someone else in a public space or business. That's what HB2 does and that's why it's discriminatory.

Re: “The Morning Roundup: Human Decency vs. Patrick Lloyd McCrory

I'm trying to figure out if ProudlyUnaffiliated is Moore and Dude is Berger or vice-versa.
