The left loves to talk about how much it supports equality and diversity. You can’t flip through more than one news program or TV show without hearing liberals sound off about their supposed love for humanity.
Yet, when the rubber hits the road, the reality is a lot different. It turns out that the political left is more than willing to tolerate and even promote racism when it serves their agenda.
There’s no better example of this than a recent law upheld in North Carolina which keeps in place an anti-black law from the Jim Crow times. Who made sure the law stays in place? You guessed it: a Democrat.
Meet North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper
Roy Cooper is a Democrat who’s led the Tarheel State since 2017. He has a long history in North Carolina politics and is very much a Democrat’s Democrat. In other words, Cooper votes along party lines and believes all the same things as the rest of his party.
That explains his vote to uphold a racist Jim Crow law pertaining to the state’s pistol permitting. The law in question is from 1919 and was put in place to stop African Americans from buying weapons. Republicans put through a motion to get this racist law overturned, but Cooper saw it come across his desk and put a big old veto on it.
The law uses legal-speak of the time to deny guns to black Americans and hand them permit rejections based on not having “good character.” This term was used at the time as a code word for skin color.
@NC_Governor Just a short message for Governor Jim Crow, Your veto of House Bill 398 shows that you don't care about the poor, or minorities of NC. I'm sure your KKK buddies are proud of you.

Liberals Applaud Cooper’s Decision
The top lawyer for North Carolina is a Democrat called Josh Stein. He says Cooper made the right call because scrapping the pistol permit system would expose the state to rising crime levels. He pointed to Missouri, which got rid of its law requiring permits and saw the murder rate go up by 25%.
This is very selective and inaccurate. Missouri actually had already seen a huge murder rate spike in the five years before the permit system was pulled. In other words, getting rid of the red tape to buy a pistol had nothing to do with the rise in murders. The growing crime and lawlessness had to do with the murders.
We all realize it’s hard for liberals to wrap their heads around this one, so it’s important to repeat as much as humanly possible: guns aren’t the problem, criminals are the problem.
Once again NC Gov. Roy Cooper Vetoes House Bill 398 backed by the Sheriff's Assoc. He proves that he is a scumbag and an anti 2A Gov. He must be voted out. NC hates this asshole. He does more harm than good for our state. He is Joe Biden Jr. Elite Shithead Extraordinaire!

Cooper is Part of the Problem
Cooper and this kind of hypocrisy are a big part of the problem our country is currently facing. We’re up against people who don’t care about facts and who use race cynically as a tactic to divide and conquer.
These aren’t the kind of folks you can sit down and talk things out with because they play politics with everything – especially our guns. There is no fair debate with such people, only full legislative victory.
