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.”
