Brother, can ye spare a dime? : The hot mess that IS the Mecklenburg County GOP
Look what showed up in the ol’ email just in time for St. Paddy’s Day:
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
Let’s face it, in a county that’s about 21% registered Republican we need more than luck. We need a winning strategy.
The new MeckGOP board is implementing its ambitious plan “RED U: Republicans Educating Democrats and Unaffiliateds.” Help us implement our bold plans on turning Mecklenburg RED by donating some GREEN!
Skip the flat green beer, the chewy corned beef and the Shamrock shakes (we all know that the ice cream machine is ALWAYS broken!). Consider making a donation today to the MeckGOP. With your valuable contribution, we can build up our voter integrity unit, offer more precinct training, increase our neighborhood outreach and directly support candidates.
Your dollars do make a difference. Show your RED support with a little bit o’ GREEN today!
Sarah Reidy-Jones, MeckGOP Chair
Sarah Reidy-Jones aka “Baby Bird”? The last time we saw her she was throwing a tantrum and storming out of the building after losing the NCGOP vice-chairman race to Miriam Chu. NOW, she’s THE BOSS in Mecklenburg.
And 21 percent Republican ??? WTH? Until the start of the McCrory era in the mayor’s office, Mecklenburg County was a GOP powerhouse. Now, I think the only elected Republicans there are two Charlotte City councilmen, one (appointed) state senator, and maybe a judge.
And HOW does Reidy-Jones expect to “educate’ Democrats? It looks like they are sitting pretty in Mecklenburg right now.
If you were moved to tears by Reidy-Jones’s pitch, here are your choices for donating:
And let’s not forget the disclaimer on this email:

Pat McCrory essentially destroyed the Mecklenburg County GOP during his mayoral terms. Ask any Charlotte conservative who remembers those days and they will confirm this. No surprise he blew his first and only term as Governor.
Pat McCrory did not help back when the city voted no for a new area and he said screw the people we are going to build it anyway. I argued with him 5 or 10 min at a county convention back then on that topic but it is the Meck Tillis supporters that probably did the most damage to the local party
The Mecklenburg GOP has only one choice-GO NEGATIVE. The dems record is pure PC. Talk about peoples pocket books, kids education and the LGBTQ+ agenda. It’s just politics and it might get ugly but do you want to sit back and watch “ne’er-do-wells” destroy you city like they are.
Fight like it matters. We do not need a “Portland” in our backyards!
The Meck wreck has been inflicting their malicious and pernicious influence upon the NCGOP for way too long and it’s a primary reason (if not the only) why the State Party has been so corrupted since 2010. The fact that the NCGOP paid for this trash is one reason I haven’t donated to the state party in a decade. My county chairman mentioned that one reason why he mended fences with, and supported Kim Cotten-West during the National Committeewoman race last year was because he knew that NC Republicans could not afford to be represented at the RNC by a Mecklenberg liberal. Too bad so many other counties voted against their own best interests.
You are 100% wrong regarding Kyshia Lineberger, our current RNC Committeewoman! She is a grassroots conservative that works her butt off for NC for FREE! Please explain why you would consider her a “liberal?” Have you met her? Heard her speak? Seen her work?
There is a lot to be critical of in this story, but NOT Kyshia & it is not clear how you even made that leap. ???
well she blocks people on Facebook when she does not agree with them. She seems very closed minded to me and silences debate that is really needed. She does not have the skills that make a good leader or representative if she cannot handle a Facebook discussion
NCGOP followed the national RNC and DC Republicans in Congress. DID NOTHING. And thought they could talk tough, do nothing, take $$ from donors, Chamber, Wall St and live the high life. NOW, the USA is lost. Thousands and thousands pouring in southern border, unfettered, unvetted and diseased(?), COVID(?), criminals(?), we have no clue? And they are being granted $1400 cks and sent to my community and yours, to further deteriorate our public schools (likely destroyed already), med clinics, ER’s, social services and increasing crime and drugs. And now USA citizens are mad, angry and FINALLY awoke to our country is LOST. Same for NC; we’ve allowed Cooper, Stein, Marcus Elias to destroy elections, BOE and our NC public schools are in shambles, for those in the minority that remain there…And our NCGA did NOTHING and allowed THE PAIN and crushing to small biz, restaurants, bars to be shuttered. And NOW NCGA starts to scramble b/c they realize the anger, madness of their fellow citizens of them. I wrote NCGA leadership and made calls and NEVER had one call returned and 1 email (touting what we are doing, just recently) from a local rep that is getting heat…All the other emails to him were IGNORED. We’ve lost USA and we’ve lost NC. Cooper, Stein run NC and ignore the NCGA and ignore we the citizens and will show NC we will be the last state to reopen. And Cooper doesn’t give one dam******. NCAE is happy, thus he is happy…Who else in the state gets the treats, favor, attention and $$$ than NCAE?
Living in Chapel Hill, I have to endure the extreme liberalism flowing out of UNC everyday. Yet the Republican UNC trustees do nothing to halt the leftist influence of this school. The RINO mindset is simply worthless and it’s as bad in NC as it is in Washington. I have tried to talk with NC GOP leaders about this, but they simply ignore my concerns.
And we learn today, who gives the opening address at the NCAE convention; none other than Herr Cooper. And keynote speak, federal teacher UNION director. But we are told NCAE isn’t a union?
Well jwmson, do you still believe in the Easter Bunny and Tooth Fairy?
Believe in both, much more belief than I have with GOP!. Been disappointed much less with both than I have with GOP, trust me!
