Skip to comments.Democrats Having Second Thoughts About Convention In NC(It is all falling apart for the Democrats!)
Posted on 05/10/2012 12:22:21 PM PDT by AmonAmarth
Democrats who already were queasy about the site of their national convention could be excused after Tuesday's election in North Carolina if they asked, "Tell me again just why we're going to Charlotte this year?" In fact, many Democrats privately are asking exactly that after the state's voters overwhelmingly approved a measure outlawing not just same-sex marriage -- which already was illegal in North Carolina -- but also any form of civil unions. Almost immediately after the vote, more than 20,000 people signed a "move the convention" petition being pushed by a New York group called Gay Marriage USA. And Twitter accounts lit up with hundreds of angry tweets demanding the party pull out of Charlotte.
I wonder how many millions it will cost them to back out and find new accomodations at this late date. Hee Hee.
Come to NC dems, have a gay old time!!!
They can probably muscle their way into Chicago for some under the table promises for “free”.
Watching the Democrats meltdown in progress. Get the popcorn ready.
As a resident of NC, I wholeheartedly endorse the idea of them taking their filth and slime elsewhere. Good riddance.
“Tell me again just why we’re going to Charlotte this year?”
Tell me again just why liberals are always filled with vitriol and hate toward those they have honest disagreements with?
Last I heard, the election was going to come down to one group of people in one county in NC...
I guess that’s out the window now.
I suggest this place:
Chicago . . .
1968 . . .
I like it!
Given the high likelyhood of OWS (Obama’s Whiney Supporters) related riots, does any city really want the DNC?
The should move it to Des Moines... and have the ousted Iowa Supreme Court Justices as headline guests... < /sarc>
Only if they bring back Mayor Daley....at least he did some good back then.
The truth does not favor liberalism.
Having to defend the indefensible is pretty hard on a person.
Cleveland pushed hard for the Democrat convention and putting the convention there sould have done well for the Democrats possibly taking Ohio.
Now they are in a Southern state that is very homophobic and NON-UNION. Good job a-holes!
I suggest a site about 500 miles DUE EAST of Charlotte...
Boycott that puppy!!! Maybe Humpy Wheeler will stop embarrassing himself by trying to get NASCAR fans to donate 40 million dollars to pay for the commie ‘RATS’ “convention” there.
It’s a race to the bottom/collapse between both the Dems and the GOPs. I just hope the Dems get there first.
LOL the Commie left is defeated. They are giving up on NC, they lose NC, they lose the election. It won’t matter how many dead people and illegals they get to vote for them, they KNOW they are going down in November!
You know, they would probably do that.
Rahm rules Chicago.
Isn’t the gov of NC a big lib dim?
Bet she will be really feeling the love if her party pulls out of her state and leaves them high and dry.
And you know they have already budgeted in all the tax revenue they would take in from the Convention.
Bet there is a lot of begging going on about now.
However this time the Secret Service will be protecting the commie punk from the Chicago police.
Maybe Hollyweird would be a good place. Then the President could go practice gay marriage with his constituents.
I’m thinking San Francisco would be a good place for them to have it.
some clown of a mayor like Emmanuel or Bloomers will force the local convention center to cancel their current obligation and give the DNC a discount..
They can hold it at a rest-stop mens room at this point.
I dunno if you’ve ever been to P-town, but it’s really small. We used to spend a couple of weeks every summer in my mother’s aunt’s place in Truro, next down to the south. There isn’t much in Truro except beachs and shacks, so we’d go to Truro for tourist stuff.
I’ve been to P-town lots of times and it was pleasant, the fags were colorful, but not militant or unpleasant. It used to be about 50/50 fags and summer tourists. (Fags is what they called themselves, btw.)
Agree. The party seems to be in complete disarray. It's going to be another 20 years before they decide anything again.
Hey now, keep these scum out of Des Moines. WE don’t want them.
You’re right. It’s not like they really need much. Just a stage, some Greek columns and a teleprompter. Voila, convention site!
I’ve spent lots of time in the Carolinas, and people there are not much different than in Massachusetts or anywhere else. For the most part, homosexuals who behave civilly will be welcomed in the Carolinas or almost anyplace outside of the Caliphate. Heterosexuals who act like jackasses will not be welcomed anywhere.
I hear HAVANNA has enough convention space available that week.
I suggest the Greek island of Lesbos. Appropriate on two counts.
Cuber ain’t exactly paradise for gays.
As a SC Upstate resident, I also agree these slimy creatures should go where they feel comfortable. How about Detroit, or
2)Disconnect Bay Area from mainland United States and set it floating out to sea.
Who are you suggesting is a votary of Sappho?
This isn't a ‘we agree to disagree’ type response. It is a ‘our way or the highway’ type moment and will be a dramatic reminder that liberals are the party that blocks compromise - they do not consider a compromise to be anything other than full capitulation to their way of thinking.
Hundreds of hours of free coverage of the convention by local media will be out the window if they up and move away from this battleground state. And where are they going? To a state that didn't vote to amend their constitutions to keep politicians from re-defining the word marriage? Like... California? Oh, right, this left coast bastion did the same thing.
Well, those Nancy Pelosi hicks can cross themselves off of the tolerance list of acceptable places to hold a convention. Surely there's some place in the nation where the people have voted for the word marriage to be changed to mean something else...right?
Pack up the bags, DNC, move the convention, and dig yourselves a hole.
Think about this.
After three years of the dim party ruling against the will of the American people, there are not many places where they would be welcome.
Add to that all the economic damage the Party would be doing to a democrat lead state by pulling out.
Seems like baraq has really put the Party in a difficult position. Bet they are appreciative after all the water carrying they have been doing for him. Hope they pay him back somehow.
They shouldn’t have any trouble finding an alternative location. There are 56 other states to choose from, after all.
She already decided not to run for re-election this year.
"For the good of the..." etc etc etc, spin it however you'd like. Reality? She was going to get her head handed to her in a bag by the electorate.
They should hold it in Washington DC. After all, that's the home of the Democrat's true constituency.
Looks like the Democrats have decided to divide-and-conquer themselves.
I believe that is incorrect. Did not the Amendment allow for contractural relationships, the essence (npi) of a civil union?
Charlotte is the Queen City after all....
Quick, every state pass a one man/one woman marriage amendment.
NC isn’t going for Obama this time!
MOVE IT TO ASHEVILLE - THEY LOVE YOU GUYS THERE.
