Anyone that knows me, knows I'm no fan of North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory. I've watched him as mayor in Charlotte bleed taxpayers for various kinds of funding like light rail, the Nascar Hall of Fame and basketball arenas. However, with that said, I applaud his effort recently to provide a kind gesture to the pro-murder crowd, also known as pro-choice. While protesting McCrory's recent pro-life legislation in front of his house, the governor provided an interesting response… he brought them cookies.
The Charlotte Observer reports:
Gov. Pat McCrory hasn't been willing to meet with the women (and a few men) protesting an abortion bill that opponents say restricts access to safe abortions. But he did stop by this afternoon with a plate of chocolate chip cookies.
McCrory was flanked by four security guards as he came out of the mansion gates. Before stepping onto common ground with the protesters – he went as far as the middle of the street between his mansion and the vigil – McCrory pointed directly at Jamie Sohn, a Chapel Hill resident.
Sohn said McCrory told her: 'These are for you. God bless you, God bless you, God bless you.' He handed her the plate of cookies, and waved as he walked away. She said she was too stunned to say anything back.
It remind me a little bit of how Chick-fil-a dealt with the homosexual lobby last year. Remember that? Instead of rendering evil for evil, they rendered good for evil. Or perhaps you recall the lovely Rachel from Chick-fil-a who dealt a blow of love and respect to a man that verbally assaulted her and in the process modeled a Christian worldview and her adversary not only ended up publicly apologizing and recognizing her character was superior to his own, but also lost his job.
However, the haters just kept on hating. The protestors were suspicious of the cookies and returned them with an ungracious note attached that read: "We want women's health care, not cookies."
They saw his gesture as condescending to them claiming that it "was rude" and that McCrory wouldn't "give cookies to a dude." I'm sorry, are there not males who promote the death culture? These people just don't know how to be gracious nor do they understand when grace is extended to them.
Instead, Sohn recalled shouting "shame" and "liar" as McCrory waved from his balcony after signing the legislation.
"The legislators that have pushed through in a shameless way this restriction on women's health, we're going to make sure they feel it in their backyard," she said.
Moe Lane from Red State added, "The protest pretty much spluttered out of existence, after that: after ungraciously returning the cookies – they couldn't even muster up the common courtesy needed to return them in person – the small group of protesters created a desultory new chant that didn't even scan and went home about eight hours early."
"Witness the power of pure, unadulterated cognitive dissonance, brothers and sisters; these people simply could not handle protesting a guy who stopped by to give them chocolate chip cookies," Lane continued. "Those cookies hit them square in their self-image, and they apparently just couldn't handle it."
"I'm going to be chuckling about this all day. Cookies. It really is true, what they say about the Dark Side…" Lane concluded.
Remember what the "Dark Side" does. It chants "Hail Satan!" and readies themselves to throw used tampons, jars of feces and urine at their opposition. And to think, there are still people who want to promote death. They must have no life.
