Protests are hypocritical
In a recent edition, you reported on the so-called “moral” Monday protests at the N.C. General Assembly.
Four people from Johnston County have been arrested. That means about 170,000 Johnstonians have not.
What are the protesters doing that deserves to be called moral? They have identified a cause they favor.
How do they go about it? Do they spend their time and money to help whoever they think needs help? There is no evidence of that. Instead, they spend their time and money to force their neighbor – that is you – to pay for the causes they favor. Instead of asking you directly to pay, they want lawmakers to pass laws so they can seize it from you.
That sounds hypocritical to me.
The overwhelming majority of Johnston County favors a government that lives within its means, but a handful of people try to reverse the clear mandate that voters expressed during the last election.
To disguise all this, it has to be called “moral” Monday.
