Moral Monday Draws Activists From Across The Country

Is this the new tourism? I hope not.

Over 150 radical leftists and professional protesters from California, New York and Florida were arrested at the North Carolina legislative building this week. Far left groups are holding weekly protests to encourage GOP lawmakers to spend more money and allow same-day registration and voting.

Something N.C. NAACP President William Barber, who is a pastor, told protestors during an in-church meeting before they headed to the legislature caught my attention:

(Barber) told protesters Monday that Republicans are out to “crucify voting rights,” partly through a bill to require photo I.D. at the polls.

“But every crucifixion is followed by a resurrection,” he said.

It was a fiery political sermon that often brought the crowd to its feet in applause. Barber also said Republican legislators are crucifying Medicaid, unemployment and people’s hope.

Obviously it’s a metaphor. And quite the metaphor to use standing at the front of a Baptist Church.

It’s not for me to say whether GOP policies are good or bad, but I can definitely tell you they don’t rise to the level of crucifixion. And while this is a top-of-the-batch example, it’s not far afield from the rhetoric I’ve heard repeatedly from the NAACP and some top Democrats the last couple of years, as they worked to turn public sentiment against the Republican Party.

Now Bill is importing “the pros” – the SEIU Thugs.   These little darlings will really ramp up the violence and obscenities….. which will be carefully edited from the WRAL b-roll.

Its going to get pretty nasty on Jones Street when these mercenary knee-breakers pile off the bus.

Bill Barber does what he does because “it’s his job” and he’s pretty good at it.   But he could never pull it off without the total sycophantic cooperation of The McClatchy Company and of Jim Goodmon….. specifically – John Drescher, Orage Quarles, Rob “RielleWho” Christensen, John Frank, Laura Leslie, Mark Binker to name the primary perpetrators.

Police estimated that roughly 1,000 people attended a rally late Monday afternoon behind the Legislative Building on Halifax Mall. Hundreds then entered the building. In all, 151 people were arrested outside the doors to the state Senate chambers, where demonstrators chanted, sang and delivered speeches decrying what they called a regressive agenda that neglects the poor.

Activist groups estimated the crowd at about 1,600.

On Tuesday, McCrory said people refusing to leave when ordered consumes a lot of resources.

“We welcome feedback, we welcome lawful demonstrations,” he said. “However, we don’t welcome unlawful demonstrations, and that should not be accepted.”

McCrory added that he is not interested in speaking with the group.

“No,” he said. “I am pleased that it’s been non-violent, though, and that’s the second most important parameter. That it be lawful and non-violent. I’m very pleased with the way the authorities have handled it, in a non-violent manner.”
