Hardcore Leftist agitators have been doing this cute little protest thing called “Moral Mondays” for months, whining about the Republican agenda. Hey, they’re welcome to do it, as long as it is peaceable. Republicans haven’t stopped them or attempted to put any kibosh on the idiocy, even though the MM folks have consistently put themselves in a position to be arrested. Now, they’ve taken their gripes and whines to weekend, with a big protest featuring lots and lots of bused in folks, many from out of state. And something amusing happened
(Daily Caller) North Carolinians marching to protest voter-ID laws must present a valid photo ID to participate in an NAACP-hosted protest against voter-ID laws in Raleigh on Saturday.
The central claim among the protesters is that the voter-ID laws disenfranchise certain segments of the voting population, particularly minority voters and poor voters.
According to official NAACP flyers passed out at the rally, protesters must carry the precise kind of ID that they would be expected to present at the voting booth.

“I find it extremely hypocritical that when nearly 70 percent of North Carolinians across all political spectrums support the idea that one present photo identification when going to the polls, the NC NAACP has filed suit in court to block this common-sense idea,” said Lewis in a statement to The Daily Caller. “However, the NC NAACP requires their protesters to maintain valid photo identification on their person throughout the march. The idea that Chairman William Barber and his followers find it more important to carry their photo identification with them when marching than when electing the President of the United States is reprehensible.”
If it wasn’t for hypocrisy, Democrats wouldn’t have any morals.
Unsurprisingly, the Raleigh News and Observer fails to mention the blatant hypocrisy in their article. There are a few cute points, however
Susan Fariss of Mocksville drove three and a half hours to hold up a sign supporting the legalization of medical marijuana.
OoooooooK. Whatever floats your boat.
Holiday Clinkscale, 60, of Raleigh climbed atop a big potted plant on Fayetteville Street and twirled an American flag above his head. He wore a leather jacket decorated with red, white and blue stars and stripes. Clinkscale wore the regalia on behalf of “depressed” African-American men.
“Black men in Raleigh couldn’t wear red, white and blue after the Civil War when we were freed, or they would have been executed,” he said. “You see a lot of black men here today looking depressed.”
Interesting. No one stopped him from wearing red, white and blue. Which, during the Bush years, would have most likely have been upside down. And, considering we just came out of a period with a Dem governor, and the Democrats have controlled the General Assembly’s two houses for most of the last 100 years, why do you support Democrats if you’re depressed? And, remember, those policies about wearing the red, white, and blue were instituted by, that’s right, Democrats.
Hannah Osborne, a student at N.C. State University, said she came to the rally Saturday morning to “promote women’s rights and a woman’s right to choose.” She and her father, Dale Osborne, a pastor at Binkley Baptist Church in Chapel Hill, held purple signs that read “Stop the war on women.”
So a religious leader is pushing abortion? Perhaps he should read his Bible. It’s pretty explicit on the issue. If he doesn’t agree, perhaps he should quit.
