Occupy 2.0: Chicago ALEC Protests Have Moral Monday Ties

In Chicago, a smaller ALEC protest at the Palmer House Hilton that took place on the 5th was ramped up into a full-on Occupy style event on the 8th. Both sets of protests ended with a handful of arrests, but the more recent event that took place on the 8th included scuffles with police.

These protests have ties to Raleigh’s Moral Monday and Democrat activists in the area. Continue reading

The Shameful Comparison Stoking Racial Tensions

In the weeks following the George Zimmerman trial, a rather shameful comparison has arisen. The comparison being made is that of Emmett Till to Trayvon Martin. This is positively disgusting and serves no other purpose than the fuel racial tensions. Continue reading

MoMoMo: The Moral Monday Concert Series

Moral Mondays have vacated the NC General Assembly grounds in search of a new venue to whine to and whine they did – or rather sing. Singing, I use that term loosely here, is what took up the bulk of the rally. Perhaps they were lacking in the speaker department. They did manage to dig up a gentleman named Bacilio Castro who spoke only Spanish and had to have his speech translated. Funny thing, I think I’ve seen him before at another event and he spoke English then. Continue reading

#MoralMondays: Rev. Barber Politicizes Martin Verdict (video)

At the last “Moral Monday” in Raleigh, Reverend Barber returned to his favorite card in the deck and gave a speech about Trayvon Martin. In the press release that accompanied the video, the NC NAACP boasted:

Less than 48 hours after the verdict in the murder of Trayvon Martin, Rev. Dr. William J. Barber, II flew back to NC from the National NAACP Convention to deliver a personal and passionate message to the Moral Monday 11 gathering at the NC General Assembly.

Yes, he dashed back to take advantage of this tragedy to score political points. Not something I would have bragged about. If that introduction wasn’t bad enough, the speech itself was far worse. Barber describes in his speech about what happened to Martin was a “lynching” and compares the verdict to Emmett Till in 1955:

Fourteen-year-old Emmett Till was visiting relatives in Money, Mississippi on August 24, 1955 when he reportedly flirted with a white cashier at a grocery store. Four days later, two white men kidnapped Till, beat him, and shot him in the head. The men were tried for murder, but an all-white, male jury acquitted them. Till’s murder and open casket funeral galvanized the emerging civil rights movement.

How repugnant is this comparison, not to mention irresponsibly misleading?

This is the face of “Moral Monday”?

Here’s the video:

#MoralMondays: July 8th Edition

It’s the 10th Moral Monday. The Left in NC continues their version of Chinese water torture at the NC General Assembly. This Moral Monday was “by the numbers”, but their numbers seem a bit vague. Vague is also how the arrest process is proceeding – no more transparency from the police on who is arrested and judges just giving slaps on the wrist… and your tax dollars paying for it all. Continue reading
