Sunday morning news shows today underscored the reality that both North Carolina's mental midget governor, Pat McCrory, and GOP presidential candidate John Kasich are nothing more than bigoted assholes and more or less harbor anti-gay animus. Kasich went to far as saying that gays need to :just get over it" when it comes to the discrimination that they face. Meanwhile, the brain dead McCrory could not even correctly name the Human Rights campaign and suggested that positive support for HB2 from a tiny black Christian group outweighed the outrage over the heinous law being voiced by 160 large corporate organizations, many of which bring vast amounts of revenue to his state. Having been once fired for being gay, I can assure Kasich that it is not something one just gets over. Not when it puts your children at risk and forces you into bankruptcy. The man is an utter asshole. Here are highlights from The New Civil Rights Movement on Kasich's unbelievable batshitery:
Republican Gov. on Sunday told LGBT people who face discrimination they should just get over it. The third-place GOP presidential candidate who is the sitting governor of Ohio also told people of faith who oppose same-sex marriage and LGBT people to "pray for" them. Both comments were made under the guise of uniting the nation.CNN's Dana Bash on "State of the Union" asked Kasich if there are
"If you don't like what somebody's doing, pray for them," the governor suggested. "And if you feel as though somebody is doing something wrong against you, can you just, for a second, get over it, you know, because this thing will settle down."
Let's take away Kasich's income, allow his children to be bullied, and have him turned away from businesses and see how quickly he "just gets over it."He went on to call the fight for equal civil rights for LGBT people "
As for Pat McCrory, the man seemingly is a complete simpleton or is at least doing all he can to come across as one as Think Progress reports after McCrory appeared on Meet the Press today. Here are excerpts:Gov. Pat McCrory (R-NC) went on NBC’s on Sunday to defend the he signed last month. It did not go well for him.
Over the nearly host Chuck Todd hammered at McCrory’s .
Todd began by highlighting how much the law has already hurt the Tar Heel state economically, noting that 160 companies have called for the law’s repeal. “Bloomberg, Capital One, United Airlines, Williams-Sonoma — that’s just on Friday,” he observed, adding that the law has cost state that at least $39.7 million in lost revenue already. He asked McCrory if he has any regrets about signing the law.
What passes for intelligence in today's Republican Party is truly frightening!!McCrory responded that he would “always call out government overreach,” like Charlotte’s law, blaming “the left” for passing a mandate on “every private sector employer” in the city. He then boasted that while the business community has criticized him, people at “an buffet restaurant” in the small city of Hamlet, NC had thanked him protecting them.
