North Carolina Lt. Gov. Dan Forest won the GOP primary for Governor by a wide margin on Monday, and he will go onto challenge incumbent Democrat Gov. Roy Cooper in November.

“It’s a big night for the Forest campaign and for all the people that have worked so hard for so long,” he said during a victory speech at the N.C. Republican Party headquarters on Tuesday evening.

“Our job is to push forward with a positive campaign about what is best for the people of North Carolina,” he added.

Forest, who has been Lt. Gov since first being elected to the position in 2012, is a social conservative who gained fame for supporting the controversial 2016 “bathroom bill,” which was crafted to keep transgender perverts from accosting children in bathrooms.

“I was one of the biggest proponents of HB2 and I got the most votes of any one,” Forest said, referring to the “bathroom bill.”

“The U.S. Supreme Court, including Justice [Ruth Bader] Ginsburg, have said that women and children have the right to privacy in a bathroom,” he added. “But under the Charlotte ordinance, if a dude who claims to be a women drops his pants in a women’s locker room, there is nothing that law enforcement can do about it. It is no longer considered indecent exposure.”

Forest’s support for the legislation made him reviled in the eyes of the LGBT community and surrender-prone moderate Republicans, such as his primary challenger Rep. Holly Grange, who has vowed to support Forest after being crushed by him in Tuesday’s voting.

Democrats will hope to stop Forest by campaigning on handouts, giveaways, and enabling LGBT predators during this year’s general election.

“North Carolina Democrats are proud to once again support Governor Roy Cooper, a fighter for North Carolina families who is committed to moving our state forward,” North Carolina Democratic Party Chairman Wayne Goodwin said. “Since 2016, Governor Cooper has fought for a better educated, healthier, and more prosperous North Carolina where people can have more money in their pockets and opportunities to live with purpose and abundance.

“He has prioritized raising teacher pay, expanding Medicaid, and strengthening our local economies over corporate tax cuts,” Goodwin added. “He’s offered the strong leadership and vision North Carolina deserves, and we will do everything we can to return him to the Governor’s mansion this fall.”

Forest will be tasked with stopping the state of North Carolina from “moving forward” into totalitarian socialism in November.

“Who do we want to be in North Carolina?” Forest asked. “In so many ways, I think our brightest days are yet ahead. We are blessed to live in the greatest country in the world, and we’re even doubly blessed to live in the greatest state in the greatest country in the world.

“I think our opportunity and possibility are endless,” he added.

Obama Reportedly Said Pete Buttigieg Too ‘Gay’ and ‘Short’ to be President

Tell it like it is, Barack!

Published

Former president Barack Hussein Obama reportedly said that former South Bend, Ind. Mayor Pete Buttigieg was too “gay” and too “short” to be a serious presidential contender during the midst of the 2020 presidential race.

Buttigieg, who ran for president in 2020 and surprisingly won the Iowa caucus, is now the Transportation Secretary under President-imposed Joe Biden. He is considered a rising star in the Democrat Party due to his homosexual lifestyle, which includes being gay married to a husband, but Obama is apparently a doubter.

Obama reportedly made his remarks while addressing a group of black Democrat donors in Oct. 2019 as he was attempting to exert his influence over the process. The revelation comes from a new book authored by The Hill’s Amie Parnes and NBC’s Jonathan Allen titled, Lucky: How Joe Biden Barely Won the Presidency.

At the time, Obama was apparently supporting Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) for president. The excerpt from the book, which includes various pot shots made by Obama toward Buttigieg, reads as follows:

When he was asked to return to the original question on his advice, Obama said he liked Buttigieg, a rising talent who’d worked on his own campaign. But despite his affinity for the South Bend mayor, he rattled off a list of reasons why Buttigieg couldn’t win. 

“He’s thirty- eight,” Obama said, pausing for dramatic effect, “but he looks thirty.” The audience laughed. Obama was on a roll, using the tone of light ridicule he some-times pointed at himself — ” big ears” and “a funny name,” he’d said so many times before. Now, it was directed at Buttigieg. “He’s the mayor of a small town,” the former president continued. “He’s gay,” Obama said, “and he’s short.” More laughter. 

Only months earlier, Buttigieg had sat in Obama’s postpresidential office in Washington seeking counsel on how to maintain equanimity in the face of homophobia on the campaign trail. Now, behind his back, Obama was riffing on him to some of the wealthiest Black men in America at a time when Buttigieg had been dubbed “Mayo Pete” by critics who believed he couldn’t connect with African American voters.

It goes without saying that any conservative who made similar remarks would be pilloried by the fake news media. Obama will get a pass, although the comments may make the former president’s relationship with the former mayor strained as Buttigieg climbs up the political ladder undeservedly due solely to identity politics.
