Moral Monday will hold its biggest march ever on a Saturday.
Uh, Moral Saturday. Now, that isn’t catchy and it doesn’t rhyme. Does that make it Sinning Saturday…or something? I guess Occupy with a White Collar is starting again? Great. Time to avoid downtown.
It will, of course, be the biggest EVER! Unions make sure to pad these events well, as I’ve noted their involvement before. Much of the media is complicit; they need to cover up their own connections to Moral Monday and it’s Blueprint NC strategy.
According to the AFL-CIO:
On Feb. 8, the Moral Monday movement, which showed massive momentum in 2013, will return with its biggest event yet, the Moral March on Raleigh. While the state of North Carolina has been moving in a more Democratic direction in recent years in presidential elections, with Barack Obama winning the state in 2008 and coming just two percentage points of winning it again in 2012, extremist Republicans have taken control of the governor’s mansion and the state Assembly.
The Moral March on Raleigh will call out North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory, state House Speaker Thom Tillis (R) and state Senate Leader Phil Berger (R) and their extreme policies, which have included attacks on voting rights, education, the environment, health care and women’s rights. Organizers expect tens of thousands of North Carolinians to stand up for their rights and fight back against these extreme policies on Feb. 8.
The Moral Monday movement was organized by the Rev. William Barber II, head of the North Carolina NAACP, which staged protests in Raleigh and throughout the state last year. The events were launched in conjunction with another organization headed by Barber, the Historic Thousands on Jones Street (HKonJ) People’s Assembly Coalition, and have been supported by more than 150 other organizations. The 13 Moral Monday events in Raleigh in 2013 led to nearly 1,000 arrests for civil disobedience, while events in dozens of other cities around the state helped raise awareness about the strange games afoot in the state capital.
NC was “heading in a Democratic direction”? Yeah, right to the poor house. The Democrats in this state racked up a debt like no one’s business. Obama won in 2008, but Romney easily took the state in 2012 — for good reason, North Carolina was fed up with Obama. Prior to the 2012 election, both NC houses were flipped to the tune of 26 seats. That’s a pretty big statement as to what voters thought of that “Democratic Direction”.
• “Crippl(e) their leaders (GovMcCrory, House Speaker Tillis, Senate leader Berger etc.)”
• “Eviscerate the leadership and weaken their ability to govern.”
• “Pressure McCrory at every public event.”
• “Slam him when he contradicts his promises.”
Now we have Moral Monday, which is little more than a coordinated Blueprint NC attack mixed with a genuine temper tantrum from the Left in NC over being punted from power. All of this led by the defacto Democratic leader in North Carolina, the Reverend William Barber. The same Reverend who recently used Martin Luther King day to disparage Tim Scott in South Carolina, calling him a “ventriloquist’s dummy“. This is not shocking rhetoric from the Reverend Barber, who is insinuated violence against the GOP in NC.
“We’re not gonna just shoot one bullet, we’re gonna shoot ‘em all.”
