A RINO and a lefty walk into a Starbuck’s …. (STOP ME if you’ve heard this one before)

RINO123Apparently, a group of GOP legislators has been meeting on the down-low  with reps of Bill Barber’s zip-tie crowd.  Never mind that Big Bill’s group is composed mostly of (1) hardcore Democrat activists, (2) veterans of international left-wing protest efforts, (3) Occupy Wall Street vets, and (4) the Pullen Memorial Baptist Church sanctuary choir. Not a whole lot of potential GOP votes there.  In fact, there are not a whole lot of people right of Fidel Castro in that bunch. 

It was interesting to see the list of GOP legislators involved.  Other than Dan Blue — down to a person, they are all well-known close allies of Senator Speaker (Spenator?) Thom Tillis.

Not surprisingly, the talks broke down.  This is about like a pit bull negotiating with a pack of kittens.  A shark negotiating with a surfer.  Not a lot of hope for success.  Doomed from the start.

Dana Cope, an outspoken lefty and head of the state employees association, doesn’t give these Moral Monday people an ounce of credibility.  Why on Earth are ANY GOPers on Jones Street bending over backwards to do so?  Most average people on the street — who are even aware of the mass trespassings — view the whole thing as a big joke.

It’s interesting that these folks will sit down with Bill Barber’s crew, but NOT with folks in Mecklenburg County upset about toll road legislation.  It’s interesting that Moral Monday folks get a sit-down, but Bob Brawley gets told to hand in his gavel and get out.

Welcome to the conservative revolution.

  1. Nominal Republicans who will sit down with the extreme left like this are quislings. They should be called the ”sell out caucus”, and they should all be targeted for defeat in the 2014 primaries. Anyone who cannot figure out that the Moron Mondays or Marxist Mondays do not represent the views of the majority of North Carolinians and particular not those who vote Republican is either, is either extremely stupid or a traitot.

  2. I went to the Immoral Monday protest last week to see it first hand. A few observations. 1.) Massive numbers of people are bussed in. These “activists” from other states told me first hand that 3 buses came from NY and 2 from SC. 2.) It’s similar to much of what goes on in partisan politics – form over substance, e.g., speeches criticizing the anemic voter ID bill. 3.) GOP leaders meeting with Immoral Monday organizers serve the political status quo in NC – it serves to foster the illusion of Left vs. Right. The GOP super majority have yet to pass one bill to strengthen our Second Amendment rights and they refuse to even discuss nullifying Obamacare even though other states like Alabama have already nullified the PPACA.
    “In a Majority vote of 56%-44% (with 46% reported), the People of Alabama passed Amendment 6, which reads:
    An amendment to the Constitution of Alabama of 1901, to prohibit any person, employer, or health care provider from being compelled to participate in any health care system.”

  3. Looks like more than one cup of coffee have been shared with a few GOP leaders and the far left. Tillis and Co. are in lock-step with the Obamanation transportation plan called “Moving Forward” which touts public-private partnerships — picking corporate winners and losers with taxpayer dollars. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vLB1x4JSiqY See this video…

    1. Tillis and his clique are also in lockstep with Obama in his War on Energy. Tillis and his allies stopped a bill to end the scheme imposed by a previous Democrat legislature to mandate that NC utilities buy very expensive ”renewable” energy, with the cost of that passed on by the utilities to customers in the form or much higher utility bills. This is Tillis’ Solyndra.

      1. Of course when you get big donations from Duke Energy and you have ownership in a bank called Aquesta that invests in solar farms, you’d be crazy to pass legislation to stop renewable energy subsidies. Tillis is having a blast with his biz buddies.

        1. Tillis sure has some funny notions about how to win a Primary. I’m guessing he hopes (as most pols) do, that few are paying attention.

    2. Thanks, Vallee – These are is the most blatantly on the take criminals I have ever seen – they don’t even try to hide their lack of to the ideals once held by their party, state and country. They have allegiance to only to money and power, and the rest of us can go straight to hell.

  4. MAJOR Kudos Brant! A half-dozen or so boffo lines imbedded here. I may purloin a few of’em. 🙂

    I hardly recall a world pre-Barber Mob Mondays. Will there even be a world after them? Will they ever stop?

  5. Someone (perhaps a primary opponent next Spring) should ask those involved in these meetings should ask those involved some questions:

    1) Did they coordinate with Tillis on their meetings?

    2) What principles did they discuss selling out on? The Voter ID bill that Tillis had already watered down to the point that it is a joke/? Obamacare, and its expensive Medicaid expansion? Something else?

    3) Did they tell the Republican caucus what they were doing, and ask approval?

    4) Were they aware that even the state employees association had dissociated themselves from Moron Mondays and the radicals running it? Were they aware that the participants were astroturfed with radicals bussed in from out of state?

  6. Tate also raised money for his friend, democrat and Louis Farrahkan supporter Harold Codgell

  7. Senator Tarte just wants to be liked. He met with the protesters so they would like him, and he told the news media about their meetings so they would like him. Sad.

    1. I don’t know if he got anyone to like him, but he seems to have succeeded in getting the party activists and base vote to hate him, the fool. That makes him a big target to take down in the next primary. A fool and his political office are soon parted.
