RALEIGH – Democrats have been making scenes for years to protest the Republican majorities on Jones Street, calling the latter extreme, racists, bigots, and on, and on.
Now we are on the eve of another election and those same Democrats, fancying a clean sweep of the N.C. House races to take the outright majority, are promising to push a radical agenda that would make the Social Justice Warriors proud.
What does it mean to flip a state legislative chamber? If Dems flip the NC House, we get a chance to do what Republicans won’t, like fight voter suppression, expand Medicaid, and block anti-LGBTQ legislation like “bathroom bills.” We only need 16 seats to flip this chamber! pic.twitter.com/30z6zJQ5IE

Who are the extreme ones, again?
This is just a reminder of what is at stake for North Carolina. While Democrats are quite unlikely to win a majority, it’s worth consideration. With a Democratic governor that consistently panders to the Far Left in his base, Democratic control of the lower chamber, and no veto-proof Republican majority in the upper chamber, risks reversing years of common sense tax and regulatory reforms.
What’s more, they will push the kind of socialist, post-modern garbage policies that usually only find favor in Chapel Hill and Asheville, onto the entire state. Those policies are exactly why they have been kept in the minority for all these years, but midterms have a way of blurring policy proposals amid the fervor of presidential referendums and anti-incumbent sentiments.
Don’t get caught napping, Republicans.
