The so-called “Moral Monday” protestors started up again this week in the North Carolina Legislative Building.
After a silent protest at the General Assembly last week, demonstrators turned up the volume on Tuesday – and into Wednesday – in an overnight sit-in at House Speaker Thom Tillis’ office.
Nearly 20 protesters, described as “workers from McDonalds, Wendy’s and Bojangles and clergy members” and dubbed the ‘Tillis 15,’ refused to leave Tillis’ office for nearly 11 hours. Fourteen were arrested at about 1:45 a.m. Wednesday.
Apparently “civil rights” protestors get the day off for Memorial Day?
In any case, the protestors defied new rules passed by the NC General Assembly last week attempting to stop the regular disruption by Moral Monday protestors over the past several months.
The list of grievances by the Moral Monday crowd, led by NAACP state chief William Barber, seems to be ever-growing, like a Festivus celebration gone wild. But as the North Carolina GOP points out, the real agenda seems to be more clear.
Last night, we literally witnessed the far-left “Moral Monday” movement officially turn into the radical Occupy Movement 2.0. William Barber is not interested in a productive dialogue, he is only concerned with attracting media attention and re-electing Kay Hagan.
As reported by the Associated Press, the Rev. William Barber and his supporters are left-wing activists pushing a liberal political agenda, which they hope will result in the re-election of Kay Hagan in November.Barber and his so-called “moral Monday” activists have demonstrated time after time that they are a fringe group devoted to attracting as much media attention as they can.
And North Carolina’s media outlets are more than happy to oblige. The North Carolina media still covers these political rallies and stunts as serious news stories regardless of how ridiculous their attention-seeking events get, as we saw last night.
It’s time for the media to acknowledge the painfully obvious: William Barber is a left-wing Democrat Party activist and a spokesman/surrogate for Kay Hagan’s re-election campaign.
Thankfully, conservative media outlets are onto the Hagan/Barber scheme and will continue to shed light on this faux civil rights protest.
