UNBELIEVEABLE: Roy Cooper Bullies Democrats To Kill HB2 Repeal AGAIN

After spending months lecturing on the need for North Carolina to repeal HB2, and supposedly having some sort of white knight moment on Sunday night in which he supposedly brokered a deal to end Charlotte’s transgender bathroom mandate and HB2 altogether, Governor-elect Roy Cooper has swooped in and killed the legislation for his own political gain.

This is at least the third known instance in which Cooper tells the public one thing, putting on a face of someone who wants to fix an issue he helped start, only to go behind the scenes and bully, intimidate, and threaten Democrats in the legislature.

Cooper’s behind-the-scenes behavior flies in the face of everything he promised North Carolina voters, including his pledge to ‘move the state away from social debates.’

“Make no mistake: Roy Cooper and Senate Democrats killed the repeal of HB2, abandoning Roy Cooper’s commitment to avoid divisive social issues by shooting down a temporary cooling off period on ordinances like the one that got us into this mess last March,” said Senate Leader Phil Berger (R-Rockingham).

According to a statement released by Berger, after Charlotte repealed their radical transgender bathroom mandate, the Senate offered to fully repeal HB2 “to hit reset on the issue.”

The legislation before the Senate would have put in place a ‘cooling off period’ on all local ordinances connected to the issue at hand. The period would last 30 days after the upcoming long session so that both Republicans and Democrats had a chance to discuss where the voters want the state to stand on the issue.

However, this apparently didn’t fly with Governor-elect Cooper, who went to work whipping votes to defeat the repeal.

Clearly, the Governor-elect’s radical leftist agenda couldn’t be enacted with a “cooling off period” in place. Such a regulation would prevent the Governor-elect and his lackeys from pushing ordinances similar to Charlotte’s in other North Carolina cities the minute the legislature repealed HB2.

Senator Berger echoed that sentiment in his statement on the issue, saying, “Their action proves they only wanted a repeal in order to force radical social engineering and shared bathrooms across North Carolina, at the expense of our state’s families, our reputation and our economy.”

By bullying fellow Democrats to kill the repeal, Roy Cooper has fully exposed his radical agenda, and the Republican legislature should be sure to keep that in mind as they proceed.
