Blogger provides free history lessons to NC conservatives

Conservative politicians and flaks have been tossing some remarkably uninformed barbs at the Moral Monday protesters of late. First there was Gov. McCrory’s absurd “outside agitators” crack and then there was the thinly-veiled attack on the Civil Rights movement itself by the chairperson of the Wake County GOP.

Fortunately, North Carolina blogger, writer and musician Alex Kotch of the Progresivo blog has been doing a good job of keeping track of this stuff and providing some useful history lessons.

Click here and here to read two of Kotch’s most informative recent entries.

    I think the protest with Moral Monday should continue and I hope it will grow. More Democrats are changing the D after name to U or R. Most people in NC think this march is not helping their state.

    This is just what is needed. One more progressive slanting history to make them look good. Frances, you are right. There are more and more people being turned off by these people. I myself have actually been turned off by the participation of bishops from my denomination attending these hate filled events. Needless to say, I and many people I have sent the news to have written in our displeasure, and are looking to change denominations in order not to be associated with the hate.

    So, Doug, the Episcopalians are full of hate? And how about those Quakers, amirite?

    This is true working with the people attempting to implement the Blueprint scheme to “evicerate” is associating with a hate filled cause. You can say otherwise, but the people going to these things are being led by hate mongers only trying to increase their own power.

    You reply, “This is true”, meaning that it is true that the Episcopalians and Quakers are full of hate…

    And you blame it on an obscure memo disavowed by blueprint after the faux outrage of folks like you who don’t understand the English language well enough to distinguish the rhetorical from the literal. (Do you really think that the memo was a call to disembowel republican politicians, as in actually taking a sword and giving them the seppaku treatment?)

    So you think the protesters are being led by murderous fanatics whose goal is to disembowel Phil Berger?

    That’s a whole lot of silly you gave us in just 2 sentences, and you can be every bit as silly in every post, on every topic. Impressive in a way.
