Gov. Pat McCrory Treats All North Carolinians the Same

North Carolina is setting an example that the rest of the country should heed:  treat all citizens the same.  How many times have liberals declared our nation’s strength is our diversity?  Well it’s not.  When government entities pander to subset groups, they create resentment, suspicion and hate.  And how does that strengthen our republic?

Governor Pat McCrory has the right idea when it comes to treating all citizens as equals. 

North Carolina GOP Gov. Pat McCrory is under fire for eliminating the state’s Office of Hispanic/Latino affairs.

“The message from Raleigh is that Latinos in North Carolina don’t matter,” Jess George, executive director of the Latin American Coalition, told the Charlotte Observer.

“Despite movement with the Republican Party at the national level towards more bipartisan solutions around comprehensive immigration reform, North Carolina conservatives don’t seem to have gotten the same memo.”

McCrory spokesman Thomas Stith told the newspaper the duties of the office were being folded into the office of community and constituent affairs.

“We don’t segment our constituents by race or cultural background any more than we separate them by age or gender,’’ he said.

Of course the “Latino community” isn’t happy about the closing of their one-manned office, and neither is the statist at the Charlotte Observer, who published this cartoon:
