Democrats are just like many other liberal groups, they don’t want equal say, representation or treatment, they want all say, all representation and preferential treatment.
Take a look at the LGBT community. They preach tolerance and acceptance yet they vehemently condemn anyone who opposes them, even for religious reasons. If you quote the Bible and say that homosexuality is a sin, you are instantly labeled to be a hater and homophobe. There is no tolerance from the LGBT community for any opposition to their perverse ways.
The same holds true for many minorities including blacks, Hispanics, American Indians and feminists. Many of them support discriminatory practices like Affirmative Action which requires preferential treatment for minorities. In some instances, Affirmative Action has required employers to hire a quota of minorities, even if none are qualified for specific jobs. My dad and I both worked for the same utility company. For a number of years, they had to fill a quota of 20% minorities for all jobs. Jobs were bid on and awarded based upon training, experience and skill. At one point, they were hiring 2 new heavy equipment operators, mainly to operate large machinery – graders, front loaders, excavators, cranes, etc. After bidding for the jobs were finally closed, there wasn’t enough minorities qualified for the positions. The utility actually declined to give the jobs to well qualified men and went outside the company to hire two women. Neither of these ladies could grasp the job and after 6 months of training, they had to hire two more, then two more It took nearly three years to fire and train two women to be able to operate the equipment. To add insult to injury, some of the men passed over for the positions were tasked with training the women.
Liberal politicians are the same way as recently seen in North Carolina politics.
For years, the North Carolina governor appointed members to state and county election boards. The boards consisted of three people which were generally all from the same political party as the governor.
Earlier in December, the Republican controlled state legislature passed a law changing the election boards to 4 members each, 2 from each political party. Their move was made to create a system that would be equal and fair to both political parties, regardless of the party of the governor.
After a very bitter political campaign, Democrat Roy Cooper defeated incumbent Republican Governor Pat McCrory by only 10,000 votes. Now, Cooper has filed a lawsuit against the new law controlling the selection of election boards, claiming the law is unconstitutional and that the legislature did not have the legal authority to make the change.
“This complex new law passed in just two days by the Republican legislature is unconstitutional and anything but bipartisan. A tie on a partisan vote would accomplish what many Republicans want: making it harder for North Carolinians to vote.”
In response to Cooper’s statement, State Senator Phil Berger, GOP leader in the state senate, said:
“Given the recent weeks-long uncertainty surrounding his own election, the governor-elect should understand better than anyone why North Carolinians deserve a system they can trust will settle election outcomes fairly and without the taint of partisanship.”
On Friday, a liberal member of the North Carolina Supreme Court issued a temporary block, preventing the new law from taking effect on January 1, the same day Cooper is sworn in as the state’s new governor.
Republicans say they were not trying to limit the powers of the new Democratic governor but trying to establish a procedure that would be fair to both parties in the future, regardless of what party the sitting governor was. But Democrats don’t want a fair system, they want a system that favors their new governor. Chances are if a Republican defeats Cooper in the future, then the state’s Democrats will re-think the fairness of the new law.
