This is not an April Fool’s Day post.
Never let a good manufactured crisis go to waste. Or as BluePrint NC puts it: Cripple, Eviscerate, Pressure, Slam.
The NC Justice Center, which is the parent organization for BluePrint NC, is fundraising off of “hateful and discriminatory HB 2”.
Yes, you read that right. NC Justice Center is assailing the protection and safety of NC Citizens to line their bank account.
Here’s the email from former Legislator turned Social Justice Warrior, Rick Glazier, who now heads up The NC Justice Center.

Subject: HB 2 – Our Stance, and Our Work
Early this morning, a federal lawsuit was filed challenging the hateful and discriminatory HB 2. We had no doubt that this law would face inevitable backlash, both in the public and in the courtroom. The Justice Center is proud and honored to be a part of that work.
Like most in the state, we were shocked and appalled by the actions of the legislature last Wednesday. Since then we have worked tirelessly to cover the issue, attempt to stop it, and now help efforts to repeal it.
Our staff and our work depends on contributions from supporters like you, who follow our work and rely on our coverage to stay up to date on this vital issue.
Early Wednesday morning we had staff lobbying at the General Assembly, speaking to the House and Senate about why this bill would be harmful to business, local government rights, and most importantly, our citizens.
NC Policy Watch began immediate coverage of businesses and community leaders speaking out against HB 2, as well as national coverage of its passage.
Justice Center staff prepped numerous other columns and editorials, and responded to multiple requests from media.
Tomorrow, NC Policy Watch will hold a Crucial Conversation featuring Charlotte Mayor Jennifer Roberts, focusing on the state’s decision to overturn her city’s ordinance.
Please read our full statement from Executive Director Rick Glazier, and please consider supporting our ongoing efforts on HB 2.
