Curious that. Though I get why the MSM will cover one and not another.
Are you actually arguing that anyone outside of Charlotte should have known who this women was in 2012 ?


Further more, her controversy didnt happen until this year, so you are going even further and arguing that everyone should retro activity know who she was before she did anything wrong, LOL

The GOP guy is an example of a growing number of members who have only the God line.

The GOP in NC has cut payroll taxes and spending so dramatically. Schools and infrastructure have not been repaired. Local taxes such as real estate and property are going up. This is after we here in NC have seen every other tax raised sometimes doubled.


The GOP controlled legislature has resorted to putting more and more constitutional questions on the ballot. They are trying to get their base out.

It's hard to get them out when earning's are not going up and prices are rising faster then most thought.

Another hysterical and desperate attempt to pain Republicans with a nasty, wide brush.
Fail.


We are talking about the North Carolina State House, not the US legislature. The current seat is held by Garland Pierce, who is a black minister and has held the seat since 2004. Last cycle he ran unopposed. The job pays $13,491 per year.
Republicans currently hold a 76-44 majority in the North Carolina House and there appears to be no danger that this particular Democratic seat will be lost.


The Real News is:

There are nuts in the world. About as many call themselves Democrat as do Republican. Some nuts run for office.
But that's not a very interesting headline.

I understand that small business owners hate government regulation...but why do so many Republicans have to be evil? Some of these people are like cartoon villains. I know the government has many problems to deal with...but I think they should make it a priority to have...say...5% fewer evil abominations whose primary goal is to destroy the world, over the course of the next few months.

In North Carolina's defense, the North Carolina Republican Party had this to say:

On Tuesday, after reports concerning their deplorable candidate began to circulate in local media, the North Carolina Republican Party withdrew its support for Walker. In a statement GOP chairman Robin Hayes said:

Based on recent behavior and previous statements, the North Carolina Republican Party is unable and unwilling to support the Republican nominated candidate for North Carolina House District 48. The NCGOP along with our local parties in Hoke, Scotland and Robeson Counties will be spending our time and resources supporting Republican candidates that better reflect the values of our party.

Republican Nominee: God Is A White Supremacist, Jews Come From Satan

So...when I think about this situation I envision the following: Republican North Carolina politicians have malets and are playing a game of wac-a-mole. They're getting exhausted struggling to bop the plastic moles or whatever they are back into their holes. They're all sweating profusely. Some of them have fainted from exhaustion, and every time they smack down a mole they say "We're not racist!" and every time a mole pops up it's missing teeth, and it's chewing tobacco, and it says "Oh yes we are!" and the moles just keep coming and coming forever.

I don't agree with hm BUT, he has the RIGHT to have those opinions just as black racist's like jesse jackson, charlie rangle, maxine waters, sheila jackson and the NAACP, and even you.

"North Carolina has a strong economy from what I’ve heard .

NC came a little short of gaining another seat in the House of Representatives because so many are moving there.

MOST are coming form the NORTH. If the north is so great, why are so many leaving.

If it is as bad as has been claimed, WHY are they moving THERE?

NY LOST 2 SEATS and NJ lost 1 in the House for example.

"WASHINGTON — New York will lose 2 of its 29 seats in the House, while New Jersey will lose 1 of its 13 seats, because of population shifts reported by the Census Bureau on Tuesday."

" The Christian God that I grew up learning about was definitely pro-white"

No wonder you have the opinions ypu do.

I was raised Catholic and went to Catholic school, and yes we DID have black children in the schools, we were NOT taught that.

In FACT, we were taught there is only ONE God no matter what "religion" you practice, be it be Catholic, Baptist, Muslim, Jewish, etc.

"How long do we have to wait for another Conservative thread to claim that Democrats are the real racists"

Do you deny there ARE dem racists today?

Anyone with common sense would admit there are racists of ALL stripes in America.

Thankfully, not as many as we used to have.
