It never fails. Liberals foist an absurdity upon the citizenry and the republicans take the blame for it. This whole transgender freak show is a perfect example of what I’m talking about. Democrats in Charlotte, North Carolina knew exactly what the consequences would be, both economically and socially; if they implemented this anything goes bathroom policy.
Unfortunatley, Governor Pat McCrory is taking the heat for the actions of Charlotte’s mayor and its Democratic junta in the city council. What’s surprising is the Charlotte Observer admits it.
Shortly after PayPal’s announcement, House Speaker Tim Moore and Senate President Pro Tem Phil Berger, both Republicans, issued a joint statement blaming Roberts “and the far-left Political Correctness Mob she’s unleashed.”
“They’re trying to shift the blame for the damage being done from HB2 to Charlotte, and it’s a lot easier if you can find a face to blame it on,” said Thomas Mills, a Democratic consultant and blogger. “Right now, to a lot of people, (McCrory) is the face of HB2. And it’s a lot easier to say ‘Jennifer Roberts’ than the Charlotte City Council.”
Blaming the mayor is justified, according to one council member.
“She was hell-bent on doing what she wanted to do and she didn’t care about the consequences,” says Democrat Claire Fallon, one of four council members who voted against the ordinance. “This is the council’s fault. The governor didn’t start this. The (General) Assembly didn’t start this. We started it and we were warned.”
Mayor Jennifer Roberts didn’t care about the consequences? Charlotte has become the laughing stock of the country and is suffering financially because a gang of radical leftist has taken over this city. I’m sure she and her social justice warriors knew they could capitalize on a politically correct zeitgeist that has lost all common sense and any vestige of decency and morality. It’s a shame we’re living in an age of the Mad Hatter.
