Secessionists to gather in Raleigh tomorrow

As Chris Fitzsimon has been pointing out lately, a group calling itself “Nullify Now” will meet at the Raleigh Convention Center tomorrow. The event is, amazingly enough, co-sponsored by Republican U.S. Senate candidate Greg Brannon of Cary. Brannon, of course, is the fellow who recently picked up the endorsement of national Tea Party favorite, Rand Paul.

In addition to Brannon, the nullifier event is also co-sponsored by, among other fun groups, the North Carolina League of the South — a group that calls for secession from the United States, a western NC branch of the certifiable Glenn Beck creation known as the 9-12 Project, something called Dr. Dan’s Freedom Forum (a website apparently founded by an Asheville-area tea partier who has run for congress in the past) and, not surprisingly,  a for-profit gold and silver retailer.

Should be a fun time. We’ll keep our eyes peeled and ears to the ground for any especially inspiring moments (and any new secession resolutions). Stay tuned!

    The NC Constitution forbids secession and likeminded nonsense.

    Article I, Sections 3, 4 and 5 for starters.

    Section 4 is literally titled “Sec. 4. Secession prohibited.”

    One wonders what these people think of the state’s own constitution.

    Buy Gold! I had a conversation with one of my mom’s elderly friends the other day about the pending collapse of Wall Street and all the banks and such, which is why she had put half of their retirement funds into gold.

    I tried to explain to her how the current price of gold has been artificially inflated by the same people peddling the “Wall Street collapse” thing, and how the price of gold is going to drop like a lead weight when the bubble pops. And I got that look. Like I was the foolish one.

    You. Can’t. Fix. Stupid.

    This should be good for a laugh, a bunch of in-bred mullets, hicks, yahoos, birthers, deathers, Beckers, civil war re-enactors, Gaston flag, Confederate flag waving, low IQ, knuckle dragging ‘patriots’, all gathered in one place. This event will be better than going to the Asheboro zoo, although the primates there I’m sure are a lot better informed than these “real Americans” .

    Frances, Metafizik is spot on, this will be a gathering of society’s worst, and most ignorant people.
