RALEIGH – The George Soros-backed Swing Left – a fundraising and voter contact organization which helped Democrats take over the Virginia Legislature last year – says “The path to winning the White House, Senate and key state legislatures runs right through North Carolina.” https://swingleft.org/p/north-carolina
The reform majority in our NC General Assembly has a bull’s-eye on them – they’re marked for destruction by this and other organizations.
And if Swing Left succeeds in flipping only 5 State Senate seats and 6 in the House – their radical agenda will hurt North Carolina badly when their Governor Roy Cooper signs the bills.
Just look at what their big donor Mr. Soros wants. We all know his long record of bankrolling virtually every facet of the radical liberals’ agenda.
Years ago – he set out to remake state courts across the country by denying citizens their right to elect our judges so liberal politicians could pack the courts with liberal judges – ensuring the left’s vision of our Constitution. Soros knew liberal control of the courts could thwart the will of the people through their elected representatives. We’ve seen Soros’ focus on the courts at work – liberals now control the high court here in North Carolina. https://www.foxnews.com/politics/billionaire-george-soros-trying-to-stack-the-courts-critics-say
The best way to look at how this Soros-backed Swing Left group could impact North Carolina this year is to take one of their select candidates and look at where they stand.
Take a look at Terri LeGrand – Swing Left’s candidate in District 31 (Winston-Salem area) against reform champion Joyce Krawiec. Warning – LeGrand is radical. If all the national shift to socialism has you getting more and more anxious about our country’s future, you might not want to look at Ms. LeGrand. She appears to be the NC version of Elizabeth Warren.
LeGrand wanted to rip our right to decide our next President by urging Impeachment. https://twitter.com/LeGrandWSNC/status/1176479573216641024
LeGrand wants a $2.8 billion tax increase. https://www.wxii12.com/article/nc-house-dist-74-debra-conrad-vs-terri-LeGrand/242128 LeGrand was against making the first $20,000 of family income tax free. https://www.wxii12.com/article/nc-house-candidate-forsyth-terri-LeGrand-one-on-one-with-wxii-12-news/24212499 In fact, she’s against any limit on the power of politicians to keep raising taxes with a cap on income tax because “We can’t tie the hands of future General Assemblies and prevent them from responding quickly and as needed to revenue needs.” (Triad City Beat, 10/14/18). That’s radical. Really radical.
Against Voter ID. LeGrand is against guaranteeing our right to hunt and fish. https://www.wxii12.com/article/nc-house-candidate-forsyth-terri-LeGrand-one-on-one-with-wxii-12-news/24212499 But she’d reward illegal immigrants with citizenship and voting rights. https://twitter.com/LeGrandWSNC/status/1093551409352589312 That’s radical. Really radical.
To Terri LeGrand, it’s wrong to protect the life of a baby who somehow survives an abortion. https://twitter.com/LeGrandWSNC/status/1118182473832255488 But thinks it’s right to deny parents opportunity scholarships so they can choose a better school for their child. That’s radical too.
LeGrand says she’s for raising teacher pay. But she supported Governor Cooper’s veto of a 4.4% raise. https://twitter.com/LeGrandWSNC/status/1030197480355454977
The list seems to go on and on. Almost everything in Terri LeGrand’s beliefs is an attack on liberty and order. From attacking AG Barr on law enforcement because “tough on crime stunts progress” https://twitter.com/LeGrandWSNC/status/1216815780727181312 to urging people to stop eating beef and dairy to reduce their carbon footprint. https://twitter.com/LeGrandWSNC/status/1131692788830101504
Watch out for Swing Left. They have North Carolina in the crosshairs. You can see in the stands of candidates they support like Terri LeGrand that this group is another whole level of radical.
