Last Friday, Charlotte City Councilwoman LaWana Mayfield wrote a controversial tweet about President Donald Trump, comparing the 45th president of the United States to Adolf Hitler:
As of this writing, the North Carolina gubernatorial race has yet to be decided. But it appears attorney general Roy Cooper (D) may be close to being able to legitimately declare himself the winner over incumbent GOP governor Pat McCrory. Unsurprisingly, the Charlotte Observer editorial board is ready to fly their “Mission Accomplished” banner. But the calls for a recount and questions about voter fraud from the McCrory campaign have delayed the struggling paper’s victory celebration, and as you can imagine, they aren’t happy about it.
It’s not exactly a secret that the Charlotte Observer opposes HB2. They’ve run countless “objective” pieces on it since its late March passage as well as numerous haughty editorials decrying the law known nationwide now as the “bathroom bill.” They’ve also denounced its proponents – which include victims of sexual assault and rape – as “bigots” fighting against “imaginary threats/ghosts” who need to get over their “discomfort” at the thought of male genitalia in their locker rooms.
It’s always highly amusing when the sanctimonious editorial troupe over at the Charlotte Observer slip up and admit the truth about an issue they’ve been demagoguing for months and months. It happened again Wednesday night regarding the HB2 issue.
