NC Governor Roy Cooper Endorses Rioting

Published

on

North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper held a press briefing on May 31 to address the death of George Floyd and the subsequent lootings that have spread into North Carolina.

In a tweet storm, Cooper effectively endorsed rioting.

He started off by tweeting, “I’m here today to talk about the call being sounded right now across our state and country to stamp out the persistent and ugly flames of racism. The unjust killing of George Floyd less than a week ago combined with many other recent and distant events broke open painful wounds.”

Cooper is of the opinion that “These scars mark generations of trauma that black people and other communities of color continue to suffer. Trauma that has too often gone unrecognized in our country.”

 

The North Carolina Governor added, “We’ve had moments of heightened awareness, some right here in our own state. But they’ve faded from the headlines too fast. We’ve made some progress, but when you see George Floyd on the ground begging for air, you realize that we have so much more work to do.”

 

The Governor tried to shift discussion by claiming that people are focusing too much on the riots as opposed to the protests, which he noted:

Unfortunately, today the headlines are not about those protestors and their calls for serious, meaningful change. They are more about riots, and tear gas, and broken windows, and stolen property. I fear the cry of the people is being drowned out by the noise of riots.

Then Cooper revealed his true colors in one of his most damning tweets.

He resolutely stated, “Let me be clear about one thing: People are more important than property. Black Lives do Matter.”

Based on this statement, Cooper would rather have North Carolinians continue to have their small businesses and property razed, rather than restoring order.

Yes, the death of George Floyd is an example of gross police misconduct, but it in no way justifies the savage looting that is taking place across the nation.

State governments across the country are becoming derelict in their duty to protect public order.

These situations demonstrate why many Second Amendment advocates are adamant about the right to bear arms.

Although governments have a role to play in defending people’s property and basic liberties, the current strain of governments have been totally infected with political correctness and a penchant to facilitate anarcho-tyrannical practices.

Lawful citizens may have to take matters into their own hands and use rational methods in order to quell the unrest and bring some semblance of order.

Southern Baptist Convention Reverses Course on Name Change After BLP Reporting

They say they’re not changing their name.

Published

The Southern Baptist Convention has sought to dispel reporting from Big League Politics on the organization’s planned name change, arguing that the institution isn’t formally changing its name.

But a close look at the American Christian church’s plans relating to its name reveal that it’s played with the idea far more seriously than they’re making it seem.

Reports of a name change first emerged in a Washington Post article published on Tuesday. SBC President JD Greear told the Post that “hundreds of churches” affiliated with the denomination had “committed” to using the phrase “Great Commission Baptist” as an alternative to the denomination’s longtime moniker. The change would come as Greear touts his support of the Black Lives Matter, although he’s been careful in pointing out he doesn’t support any formal organization related to the movement. Greear also is renaming the church he personally pastors with the term.

The SBC’s 2021 convention will also organize under the motto of “We Are Great Commission Baptists.” Sounds a lot like a name change, even if the SBC’s leadership is steadfastly maintaining it isn’t.

The name ‘Great Commission Baptist’ is theologically sound in the Christian religion, but it’s somewhat questionable that the organization’s leader appears to be emphasizing it at a moment in which political correctness is making its entryism into many Christian churches and organizations.

It seems as if the organization’s figurehead is keen to present himself as a liberal-style suburban Evangelical to the Washington Post, but he changed his tune quite quickly when the rank and file membership of Southern Baptist churches learned that he was promoting the idea of a name change.
