National Class Act Governor McCrory tells us some personal details concerning the way people reacted to his passing of HB2:
“It’s almost like the George Orwell book ‘1984’,” he said. “If you disagree with Big Brother or you go against the thought police, you will be purged. And you will disappear.”
No, McCrory, being fired by your boss–the electorate–is not the same thing as being disappeared by secret police.
“My wife, for example, in Charlotte – she primarily stays in Charlotte,” he said. “She’s been disinvited to charity events. Basically, they call her up and say, ‘You better not come. You better not come.…
Ohhhh, mon petit chou-fleur. Want me to kiss it better?
“My wife and I … we’re being shunned for a political disagreement, a values disagreement.”
Wow, McCrory, that sounds so difficult! I mean it’s not like your law strips trans people of human rights or anything.
“I listen to the other side … And I say, ‘I respectfully disagree with you’,” he said. “They do not say that to me, I wave to them with five fingers. They wave back with one.
I can’t ever imagine why.
And it’s personal. It’s death threats. Last week, I was verbally assaulted by a 21-year-old drunk student. She was arrested.”
[serious mode] Death threats are not okay. I will grant you that. Anger, yes, spite, absolutely, but I draw the line at advocating for violence.
As with respects to the student, that is actually quite chilling. What happened to freeze peach? My Google-fu could not confirm this incident occurred but if anyone can find word of whether this actually happened and who it happened to, please let me know. I want to contribute to their defence fund. [/serious mode]
“It was the liberals that became the bathroom police, not conservatives,” he said. “They passed an ordinance on private sector employers that said, if you don’t recognize gender identity and gender expression – two issues which I had never heard of – we will fine you.”
I’d ask what kind of fucking duncecap thinks they should legislate on issues they’ve never heard of, but we already have the answer.
McCrory said he’s been called a bigot. “I’m the farthest thing from a bigot,” he said. “I love everyone and I’m going to treat everyone equally. I want to treat people who are transgender – I want to hug ’em and say I love ’em. But I don’t agree with the concept of redefining gender. That is a major societal change.”
I have a rape whistle for those kinds of hugs. No thanks.
