Nice catch here by WatchDogWire NC:
Also on August 20, Rev. William Barber, president of the North Carolina NAACP and a National Board member as well, held a press conference on behalf of King. He calls the challenge to King’s candidacy “a crime against democracy.” He goes on to say, “Let me say we will now take questions, questions from members of the media.”
When Betsy Meads, author of the video, identified herself as Vice Chairman of the Republican Party in Pasquotank County and a blogger on ElizabethCity.com, Barber motioned that he wanted to go to another question from the audience. Meads was attempting to present information to Barber which shows reasonable people agree that election laws for college student voters need to be adjusted.
She states, “On April 18, 2013 a majority Democratic Board voted 52 times unanimously to uphold the challenges to voters at 1704 Weeksville Road (ECSU). One member was a black, charter member of the Pasquotank NAACP.” Previous challenges had been made to students that used the college address as their residence.
I hope you didn’t miss Barber’s little statement in the opening minutes: “We’re not gonna just shoot one bullet, we’re gonna shoot ’em all.” My, what rhetoric. Imagine if a conservative said that at a public gathering? Notice how a man blocks the camera view at the end and the glare from the woman after that could turn anyone to dust. What a friendly bunch who clearly don’t want their narrative challenged. So much for all that “Forward TOGETHER” crap.
