Rev. Barber Afraid To Lunch Alone… Wah.

In the continued effort to ‘cripple and eviscerate‘, no stone is being left unturned by the Reverend Barber and NC NAACP. Not even lunch. 

The food fight is on!

Reverend Barber claims he wasn’t really firmly invited. Barber insisted that if his entourage can’t come, then forget it. Apparently he’s afraid to go eat alone?

Barber was not among the ministers who visited with Gov. Pat McCrory Thursday. A McCrory spokesman said Barber was invited but declined to attend, and the governor’s office  released a guest list with Barber’s name on it.

“On May 8th, the governor’s chief of staff, Thomas Stith, spoke directly with Rev. Barber and invited him to attend today’s lunch meeting with clergy,” spokesman Josh Ellis said in a statement. “The governor arranged this meeting to continue reaching out to various individual groups including members of the business, clergy and education community. Rev. Barber said that he couldn’t come because of a conflict in his schedule. We’re unclear why he’s trying to mischaracterize his absence.”

But the NAACP released a statement saying McCrory and his staff were spreading “false information.” Barber said he got a call last week from the Governor’s office about a possible luncheon.

“I said it might be possible if I could bring other clergy leaders from the Forward Together Movement with me,” Barber said in a statement. “I was told the governor decided his own list. I was also told the luncheon may or may not occur. I have not heard anything from his office since. I now learn a luncheon apparently took place and that the Governor’s office has apparently said I declined his invitation.” – WNCN 5/15/14

Unclear why he’s trying to mischaracterize? I’m sure that was meant to be funny. We all know that Occupy Monday exists only to harass Republican state leaders and they take any tiny little thing and blow it out of proportion to suit the ‘cripple and eviscerate’ agenda.

It might be possible if he can bring his protesters with him, eh? Afraid to lunch with the Governor and clergy not of your protesting ilk, Reverend Barber?
