Seriously, Just go Fuck Yourself to Death

This fucking guy:

Former Gov. Pat McCrory says the backlash against House Bill 2 is making it difficult for him to land a new job after he left office.

McCrory has been appearing frequently on national media outlets to defend the controversial LGBT law, but he hasn’t announced what’s next for his career. In a podcast interview recently with WORLD, an Asheville-based evangelical Christian news website, McCrory talked about his challenges on the job market.

The former Republican governor says HB2 “has impacted me to this day, even after I left office. People are reluctant to hire me, because, ‘oh my gosh, he’s a bigot’ – which is the last thing I am.”

Later in the interview, McCrory wouldn’t say if he’s being considered for a job in President Donald Trump’s administration. But he praised Trump, calling him “a breath of fresh air.”

McCrory said the liberal groups opposing HB2 have harmed his reputation. “If you disagree with the politically correct thought police on this new definition of gender, you’re a bigot, you’re the worst of evil,” he said. “It’s almost as if I broke a law.”

Republicans are the least self aware motherfuckers on the planet.

    The irony is that before 2008, McCrory was widely considered the quintessential “moderate” Republican in North Carolina back when he was mayor of Charlotte. My seat-mate on a trip to D.C. happened to have worked closely with him at Progress / Duke Energy, and said his former colleagues were shocked at the huge transformation between the pragmatic, moderate guy they worked with and the political candidate and governor he became in 2012.

    This is what happens when you sell your soul to the devil aka Art Pope (the wealthy NC version of the Koch Brothers) to win a gubernatorial election in 2012, after you lost the 2008 race. Too many people can see the devil’s ownership mark on your forehead, Pat, and they kind of back away from the sight of you.

    Chances are he wouldn’t recognize a transgender individual if he met one on the street. There are lots of people who look fairly neutral, and dress may or may not identify them as one sex or the other. If someone like that is in a public restroom, I have to assume they know how their plumbing works and choose accordingly. If they were to ask about a urinal, I would send them to the men’s room.

    The only one trying to enforce any sort of politically correct thought policing is you, McCrory (there are really 2 Cs in that?). You want to tell people how they should identify themselves, how they perceive themselves in their own mind. Then you’re out there demanding that people who perceive you as a bigot should be willing to hire you. Get fucked sideways with rusty, mechanized farm implements.

    Seconded, as a Charlotte resident during his tenure. I strongly suspect a lot of his appeal came because he was able to bridge between the wacky “true believers” and the GOP-lite folks who run Charlotte post-financial boom.

    And there’s a lesson for use, as well, other than Fuck You McCrory. Guys like him just want to win, and they may talk a big game (Hello, Gov. Walk-all-over-you), about it. But if we can dismantle at least the gerrymandering system that keeps them in power, and leverage the tools that people like rev. barber of the Moral Monday coalition bring to the table, we can bring them to heel.

    Meanwhile the junior DJT gets up onstage in Texas. He now realizes how much he likes politics!

    “I thought I was out of politics after Election Day and [would] get back to my regular life and my family. But I couldn’t.”

    “Texas gave us the funds that we needed.”

    “You guys get it. You understand the freedoms … so many of which we’ve lost where I come from in the peoples’ republic of New York. … I can say that and mean it because I see it.”

    “I’m watching more take place in two months than I saw in two terms before.”

    Also speaking at Saturday’s event was Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, sharing a stage with a member of the Trump family for the first time since he clashed bitterly with candidate Trump.

    But Jr. DJ is a gracious guy.

    “I saw on TV that [Cruz] had had dinner with my father earlier this week,” Trump Jr. told the crowd. “Now, I don’t even know if I have to deliver a punch line to that. But it’s sort of ironic.”

    There are no thought police, but there are these beings called voters, and they voted your bigoted ass out. The reason corporate America is supportive of LGBT rights is because they have to appeal to as many people as possible, pissing off the majority is not a good business strategy, just saying.

    That’s because they have a Good Book they rely on for their bigotry, and since there’s no single tome that encapusulates what the rest of us use for guidance they assume there is no code.

    I wonder sometimes whether this misconception is what leads so many FundiEvangelical wingnuts to stray so far from the Gospels they purport to hold so dear – the misconception that there is only One ethical guide, and no matter how far they stray from Biblical strictures they’re still not as lost as the unWashed, unSaved, unXtian masses who only have Plato, Aristotle, Bacon, Locke, Malthus, Descartes, Spinoza, Wollstonecraft, Swift, Pope, Kant, Hume, Schiller, Engels, Schopenhauer, Kierkegaard, Voltaire, Rousseau, Dickens, (and the rest of the socio-philosophical world) to point the way toward a just, equitable, humane life.

    42 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:

    43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.

    44 Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?

    45 Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.

The people also to whom they are prophesying will be thrown out into the streets of Jerusalem because of the famine and the sword; and there will be no one to bury them– neither them, nor their wives, nor their sons, nor their daughters– for I will pour out their own wickedness on them.”

    @boatboy_srq:

    That’s because they have a Good Book they rely on for their bigotry

    Only partially, they pick and choose what they want to take as literal and what figurative. They choose to ignore most of the New Testament and all it’s talk about tolerance and not judging. I can’t take any of them seriously until they start stoning kids and cutting off hands, and blinding each other, then I’ll take their them at their word when they say they are living according to the bible.

    I like Greensboro, it’s a nice town for NC. We have cousins there. We stop there on our way to Raleigh and back.

    Thanks for what you do in the schools.

    Best wishes from the green rolling hills of WVa.

    @boatboy_srq:

    Actually, many people have actual real built-in morals, and don’t need any books to understand right and wrong. Some of those folks also study the books about morality, and come to learn that, By George! right is right, and wrong is never right.

    And this is why, no matter the distortions people created in the Bible, no matter how energetic the evangelicals are about their immorality, good people aren’t often snowed by the BS being shot around by the haters.

    I think He would go with: “Seriously, Just go Fuck Yourself to Death”

    Since you seem to want to put the words of our host in the mouth of Jesus, that makes me wonder …

    John Cole – – – Jesus Christ

    Coincidence? I think NOT.

    Christ, I can be such a suck-up sometimes.

    @Roger Moore:

    I don’t know if the thing from Matthew would be what McCrory deserves … but then again, Jesus would have gone easy on him. A real hard-ass would just de-nut McCrory on the spot. With a dull spoon. And no anesthetic.

    Except when it’s Larry Craig doing the visiting. Then it’s them Lie-berals doing the persecutin’.

    Maybe McCrory can just chalk this little hardship up to having made “bad life choices”. Isn’t that why they say poor people are poor? Bad life choices? Or does that only apply to poor people, and not our betters like this shitstain?

    My own real life initials are JC.

    There was a very brief period in the 1970s when the leaders of the United States, the United Kingdom, and Canada all simultaneously had the initials JC (Jimmy Carter, James Callaghan, and Joe Clark).

    People are reluctant to hire me, because, ‘oh my gosh, he’s a bigot’ – which is the last thing I am.”

    racists and bigots don’t get to define whether or not they’re racist and bigoted; its the people that feel the brunt of their racism and bigotry that get to make that determination.

    The HB2 law also prohibits any discrimination lawsuit. As in…Racial, Sexual, or Age Discrimination. Not hired because you’re Black…can’t sue. Boss grabs your p🎉🎤🎤🤔…can’t sue. Laid off for a younger worker…can’t sue.
    HB2 is more than a bathroom law.

    @cmorenc: The same thing happened to Lamar! Alexander on a larger scale. Lamar! was a decent-enough governor of Tennessee and an adequate, if unexciting, Secretary of Education. The minute he was elected to the Senate, he became the quintessential Republican a**hole. (My apologies to a useful part of the human body for comparing it to Lamar! Alexander.) As a Senator, he makes a great piano player. Never fails to toe the GOP line. Occasionally, he makes noises like an independent thinker, but his voting record is pristine Thug. He has always seemed like an opportunist to me.

    @J R in WV: That, uh, was my point (hence the long list of philosophers and of writers on ethical subjects). We get it that there are other resources than The Book on which we can draw for a moral life; it’s the Fundies that don’t understand that – either because they’re convinced they have the Sole Guide For Righteous Living™ in their grip (no matter how little actual attention they give it) or because their communities never taught the others because Heresy™ and Blasphemy™.
