The dividing and conquering continues (Video)

In today’s “Friday Follies” edition of his column Chris Fitzsimon reminds us of how remarkably prescient House Speaker Thom Tillis was in his October 2011 speech to Madison County Republicans in which spelled out his plan for dividing and conquering people “on assistance” in our state. Now, as Chris notes, the dividing and conquering has moved on to outright punishment.

In case you’ve forgotten the specifics of Tillis’ offensive remarks, we’re happy to offer an encore presentation below.

    To the person that accused NC Policy Watch of “fear mongering” you might want to listen to the words of House Speaker Thom Tillis and consider just who is fostering hate, fear, division, class warfare, discrimination and abridging the rights of citizens in NC.

    Rob needs to worry about fear mongering. If the three woman get hold of him from the clip, Rob would be nice when he attacks.
