NC Department of Cultural Resources touts tax cuts

No, that headline is not a typo.postpic

North Carolina’s Department of Cultural Resources — you know, the folks with the mission to enrich lives and communities and create opportunities to experience excellence in the arts, history and libraries in North Carolina — has a post on its Facebook page in which it touts the state’s new and regressive tax changes and links to a Forbes.com article on the subject.

I suppose you can chalk it up to loyal administration staffers simply cheerleading for the people that hired them, but the post has ticked off a heck of a lot of Facebook commenters who are used to coming to the page to read about, you know, cultural issues. As of Thursday afternoon, 63 people had commented.

Here are a few of the mostly negative responses to the surprisingly political entry:

“I really enjoy the posts about NC culture and history. This post is neither.”

“I totally thought this was a gag post. Sad to say it was not.”

“What a Crock of Inappropriateness…Shame on you North Carolina Culture.”

“Sorry, won’t be liking this page any more.”

“Promises kept??? Only when it comes to his wealthy contributors. Shame on Gov. McCrory and whoever posted this with pride! Have you seen his approval ratings lately? North Carolinians are far from proud of the state’s current leadership.”

No word yet on whether the Department will be offering up any virtual cookies for its large group of disgruntled friends.
