TropicalMark saidAll you republicans.. listen up!
Miller referred to comments made by Rep. Mark Hilton, R-Catawba, earlier this year during a closed-door GOP caucus meeting in which the microphones were left on and the sound was accidentally piped into the Legislative Building pressroom. During the caucus, Hilton said that the proposed same-sex marriage ban was needed to help conservative groups “get their ground game working.”
And you people actually vote for these assholes? You deserve your second class status!
Bringing up all this anti-gay shit in NC is a very intentional strategy by the desperate Repub party to try to keep NC from going to President Obama again next year.
The Repubs will have an anti gay marriage measure on the ballot for next year's election - just like they did in other swing states in 2004.
The craven and divisive Repubs are more than happy to spread and encourage anti-gay hatred if they think it will help them gain a few votes.
They've done it time and time again, and they'll be doing it in NC in the next election cycle.
Whether it will work in NC - or backfire in their faces - is very much up in the air.
NC is becoming less and less reliably Repub.
That's why the Repubs are taking this desperate - and risky - strategy.
But there's a real risk that it will hurt them more than help.
The NC electorate has changed - with a lot of new more progressive folks moving into the state.
Plus, gay marriage has rapidly been gaining support in NC and nation wide.
It would be sweet if this ugly divisive anti-gay gameplaying blew up in the Repub's faces.
