More concern about McCrory’s appointments

Governor Pat McCrory’s decision to appoint the controversial A.L. “Buddy” Collins of Forsyth County to a two-year term on the state Task Force on Safer Schools continues to draw criticism from across the state.

Collins was appointed to the State Board of Education by McCrory earlier this year over the objection of Equality NC and other human rights groups because of his anti-gay reputation and homophobic statements.

The decision to appoint Collins to a safe schools task force only adds insult to injury. Equality NC today called on McCrory to reconsider that decision and John Grooms with Creative Loafing in Charlotte also weighed in to oppose the offensive appointment.

Last week, McCrory announced the appointment of John Locke Foundation staffer Dr. Troy Kicker to the Martin Luther King Jr. Commission. The Lockers have repeatedly called for the abolition of the commission.

If you have any doubts about McCrory agreement with, or at least unwillingness to challenge the far-right, his recent appointments ought to dispel them.

    The Supreme Grand Wizard of NC at work…. but the hand inside working the controls in none other than Fart Pope. This I’m sure will keep NC’s bigots, racists, and homophobes happy. Way to go state GOP, your outreach program is working wonders for your future electability.
