Wake Cty Sheriff Race Brings In Social Justice Rhetoric

Wake County Sheriff candidate Willie Rowe made a statement captured by the News and Observer that caught my eye. Emphasis added is mine:

“I am a 28-year veteran of the sheriff’s office,” Rowe said during a meeting with the editorial board of The News & Observer. “In my 28 years, I have seen first-hand the impact crime has on families, communities and the future. I want to partner together with the community to improve public safety, close the revolving door to jail and shut down the school-to-prison pipeline.”

“school-to-prison pipeline”

GEE, We’ve heard that one before. Continue reading

“Jobs For Voting Rights”

Make $4,200 to $7k college students! Call Andy! Line up and join the Moral Monday crowd! Activist Summer Jobs! Good grief.

As seen on Craigslist, brought to you by “GrassRoots Campaigns” on “behalf of the ACLU” :

“Grassroots Campaigns ran nationwide voter mobilization effort in 2012 to re-elect President Obama and help other Democratic candidates get into office. Most work was done in Colorado and Nevada, with additional projects in Montana, Oregon and Minnesota. We also sent teams of our staff to 10 states to run GOTV efforts for progressive candidates throughout the country.

Following the 2012 election Grassroots shifted its focus back to the ongoing base-building and fundraising operation, which has continued to expand. Currently Grassroots Campaigns operates 25 offices, including new expansion offices in Durham, New Orleans and Albuquerque. Continue reading

Institute For Southern Studies Contortionist Act on Voter Fraud

There can’t possibly be voter fraud, even when faced with proof of voter fraud. This is the position of Institute for Southern Studies and they are sticking to it as they rely on Democracy NC’s Bob Hall as the leading authority:
Are four NC lawmakers really committing voter fraud?

Four North Carolina state lawmakers could be targets of criminal investigations for voter fraud based on controversial standards embraced by some of their own colleagues.

Today Democracy North Carolina, a voting rights watchdog group, released findings that show someone with exactly the same first name, last name, and date of birth as each of the lawmakers is registered to vote in another state. The registrants’ middle names and middle initials also correspond.

Earlier this year, the State Board of Elections released a report that identified 35,750 North Carolina voters whose first name, last name and date of birth matched registered voters in other states. Some state lawmakers and conservative activists claimed that was proof voter fraud was occurring — a claim that voting rights advocates challenged.

“These legislators are innocent” of fraud, Democracy North Carolina Executive Director Bob Hall said at a press conference today outside the Board of Elections offices where he announced his group’s findings. “This is the problem with using mass sets of data and drawing conclusions about voter fraud.”

*SNIP*

Hypocritical Beclownment complete.

You all remember Bob Hall, right? The “non-partisan advocate for clean elections”? That same Bob Hall and “non-partisan” who testified in front of the NC General Assembly and then turned around and whipped up the crowd at Moral Monday. Video here. Continue reading

Here Comes The Union Bus!

You’d have to be living under a rock not to know the Unions and their multitude of ‘raise the wage’ front groups have been hollering for a minimum wage hike. While the President seems to be talking the talk, his Democratic held Congress led by Harry Reid are not walking the walk. They failed to pass the bill!

So, here comes the bus! A who’s who of the Left in NC is hopping on board. GOODY! The circus is coming to Greensboro and Raleigh.
