North Carolina is the new Mississippi
What the fuck is happening to North Carolina? This has been one of the most progressive of the southern states. It’s the home of Duke University — plus a lot of other top notch schools — and some of the most prosperous cutting-edge cosmopolitan cities. Yes they still have Jesse Helms to atone for, but remember, on the day Jesse Helms died the entire country celebrated with fireworks.
Until last year, the state had a Democratic governor to veto the Klanbagger and Teatard legislation that erupts out of every Republican legislature. Now that they have a Republican governor, North Carolina’s Teahadist legislators are getting crazier than a busload of priests at a little boys’ swimming meet.
Some of the country’s worst voter suppression legislation, anti-abortion zealotry, union busting, eliminating all corporate taxes while increasing the sales tax — North Carolina has it all.
And on top of that, it turns out some of North Carolina’s teadroolers don’t even believe any of that “free market” rhetoric they’re always spewing. State senator Tom Apodaca (R—Corporate Prostitute) has introduced legislation that would ban the sale of Tesla’s electric vehicles in North Carolina.
Tesla sells all of its vehicles directly to the consumer — via phone or Internet — and hence is able to bypass all third parties, i.e. the car dealer. On direct orders from his pimp, Hooker Apodaca spread his legs for the North Carolina Automobile Dealers Association. His proposed bill would prohibit all car companies from selling directly to a customer. All sales would have to be transacted through a dealer.
What happened to that “limited government” that the teajobs are always drooling about? You know, “government bureaucrats meddling in the marketplace,” or something. To add even more irony, the North Carolina teawads are pretending this law is “to protect consumers.”
Who the fuck voted for these dildos???
If this trend keeps up, people in Mississippi will be saying “Thank God for North Carolina.”
