North Carolina Bev Perdue is not too pleased with the people of her state for voting, overwhelmingly, for an amendment to the state constitution, that defines marriage as one man and woman. Sister Toldjah has the ugly remarks of the governor
Eastern North Carolina news station WITN scored a major quote from outgoing NC Governor Bev Perdue on the overwhelming passage of Amendment One earlier this week:
Greenville, NC (WITN) — North Carolina Governor Beverly Perdue says Tuesday’s passage of Amendment One makes the state look like Mississippi. Perdue made the remarks in response to a question from WITN’s Brittany Gunter while in Greenville Friday morning.
On Tuesday, 61% of the state’s voters approved the constitutional amendment which bans same sex marriages. State law already prohibits gay marriages.
The governor, a Democrat who said leading up to the vote that she was against the amendment, told WITN that the result is wrong for the state.
“People around the country are watching us, and they’re really confused to have been such a progressive forward thinking economically driven state that invested in education and that stood up for the civil rights people including the civil rights marches back in the 50s and 60s and 70s,” said Perdue. “People are saying what in the world is going on with North Carolina, we look like Mississippi.”
Well Governor Perdue, I find it odd that you would describe people who have the audacity to think marriage might be best defined in the traditional manner in an unflattering way. Certainly, the voters of the Tar Heel State have a right to decide this issue, and they did. Frankly, I could not care less how the vote went. If it had gone the opposite way I would say the same thing. This issue is up to the individual states in my view. Personally, I think marriage would be best left alone. Nothing wrong with civil unions at all. Let people who are committed to each other regardless of gender alone. But there is something that bugs me Governor.
That something is your arrogant, snotty attitude. It is typical of most of the politicians in your party frankly. We heard similar declarations from many Democrats during the health care fight. It seems that, basically, Democrats do not want to hear from the people. That is sad Governor. It is sad to hear the condescending tone that you and your fellow Democrats use towards the people when they dare disagree with your personal ideological views. Maybe your party is not familiar with the founding principles of this nation? Or perhaps you just think yourself smarter than the people? Either way, you have forgotten where the ultimate power lies Governor. It lies with the PEOPLE! Forgetting this basic American principle, you disparage the voters in your state, then you go after another common target for snotty Liberals like yourself, Mississippi! I am surprised you did not bash Alabama too, or the entire South.
We all are well aware of the disdain Liberals have for Dixie. And it is no wonder, the South is the, most Conservative portion of America, and that chaps an elitist Liberal like you doesn’t it Governor, or should I say soon to be former Governor Perdue?
