RALEIGH The historians, doctors, preachers, lawyers, raging grannies, students and others gathered around the second-floor fountain inside the Legislative Building and belted out This Little Light of Mine and other songs.
They were diverse in age and backgrounds but united in voice as part of a protest movement gaining numbers in recent weeks.
In the four months since North Carolina Republicans took control of both General Assembly chambers and the governors mansion, the lawmakers have proposed rapid and sweeping change to the states electoral processes, health care policies, welfare management and publicly-funded education systems.
The Republicans, some who emerged from a protest movement of their own the tea party dissatisfied with the cost and influence of government contend theyre doing the business of the people who voted them into office. They say their critics are simply bitter that their party no longer is in power.

Dr. Charles van der Horst is arrested during an act of civil disobedience condemning the Republican legislature's agenda Monday, May 5, 2013, at the North Carolina State Legislative Building.Twenty-seven members of the state chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People and other activists were arrested by Raleigh and General Assembly police. Seventeen were arrested last week in a similar demonstration.
Pimping - up front.
Horst, the smirking Fascist Pig ~ typical smarm merchant ~ typical Democrat
That fella looks crazy as a chithouse rat. I would NEVER use a Dr like THAT!
Highlight concerns my butt. They’re throwing a tantrum.
Was the National Association for the Advancement of White People represented too ?
so much to do and so little time -
bravo Republicans we are behind you. Many people don’t realize it but not only did the Republicans take over state government in NC, but also took over many county governments. It is a grass roots endeavor that needs everyone to cheer on.
dunno, my guess is that he is a shrink!
Its the same thing that’s happened in Michigan.
Lots of democrat tantrums being thrown with little effect.
He’s not a shrink. His specialty is infectious disease, esp HIV. He is a buddy of our president and proudly displays a picture of the two of them here
Look at his eyes, he’s a psycho. Leftover sixties trash that should have been taken out long ago.
No, it’s not a real temper tantrum ‘till the vagina costumed feminazis show up.
Turn the screw tighter.
Good for the conservatives of North Carolina. The people flirted with that leftist crap and said no thanks.
IOW, he’s a mo.
now if only Illinois would do the same thing..
Have you ever noticed how the only “doctors” who wear white smocks these days are the “doctors” who show up for commie ‘RAT “protests?”
He's not even from North Carolina. How does he know? Here'a clue....If NC elected these people to represent them, then that's what they want. Go back to where you came from and quit living off our research dollars, socialist scum.
Douche bags are only ticked that Republicans are in charge for the first time in over a century.
Democrats can’t stand not being in power.
thanks for the info - was only a guess on my part judging by his anti-social behavior and crazyman smirk. he may have missed his calling
He's got that "on the lowdown look, himself." Not surprising he's "buddies" with the president.
