Well, not really… or did he?
In his speech this afternoon, Governor Cooper said:
“In a perfect world, we would have repealed HB2 today and added full statewide protections for LGBT North Carolinians. Unfortunately, our supermajority Republican legislature will not pass these protections. But this is an important goal that I will keep fighting for.”
So Roy didn’t overtly blame the voters, he blamed the “supermajority Republican legislature”.
So, who put the “supermajority Republican legislature” in Raleigh?
The voters of North Carolina did.
So who did Cooper really blame?

One Reply to “Roy Cooper Blames Voters For HB142 Shortcomings”

The USA was founded on equal rights for all.
Allowing cities to create special regulations may be an emotional cure but it is a slippery slope into confusion and danger.
