There comes a time when every thinking person has to wake up and smell the coffee. And here in North Carolina, we've just been doused with a rotten brew.
It's bad enough that we have been watching our public schools go down the toilet for lack of funding and teachers. Now we have also stood witness as a majority of bigoted voters have shredded one of our most fundamental human rights with the passage of Amendment One. In two short years of Republican leadership, our state has moved from being a progressive leader in the south to become the most hostile and hateful state in the nation.
And so, Rest of the World, I am writing to ask for your help. It's clear that most people in North Carolina have no concern for basic human dignity, so we need you to help us with some tough love.
If you are a business who has been considering moving to or expanding in North Carolina, please find another state and offer your jobs there. If you are an employee who is being asked to relocate to North Carolina, tell your employer "thanks, but no thanks." If your family is planning vacation in our mountains or on our coast, cancel your trip and go elsewhere. If you are an association that plans events and conferences, put North Carolina on your "do not call" list.
And finally, if you are a person in a non-traditional family who finds him or herself victimized by one of the many adverse effects of Amendment One, please contact me and I will put you in touch with organizations that will help you fight this miserable legislation. Amendment One will be going to the United States Supreme Court sooner than later, and you may well be the person to help make that happen.
In the meantime, I offer my deepest apologies for our fucked up state to every American and all other citizens around the globe. We could have shown the world what it means to be good Christians and just human beings. Instead, we have showed the face of hate and evil. Please forgive us.
BlueNC is dedicated to making North Carolina a more progressive and prosperous state. If your intention is to disrupt this effort, please find somewhere else to express your opinions.
