In a single speech on Monday, Gov. Roy Cooper (D-NC) exemplified two of his party’s worst attitudes: contempt for parents and disdain for representative democracy.

Cooper declared a “ state of emergency ,” fortunately a toothless one, for public education in his state. He did so to try to rally support against what is likely to be a successful move in the state legislature to implement expanded school choice . Cooper vetoed the bill, but the legislature seems poised to override the veto.

 

NORTH CAROLINA GOVERNOR ISSUES 'STATE OF EMERGENCY' OVER SCHOOL CHOICE LEGISLATION

In inanely overheated rhetoric, Cooper said that expanded choice would drop “an atomic bomb on public education.” What he is calling an A-bomb, though, is what nearly 70% of North Carolinian voters want — namely, the chance to decide where to send their children to school rather than have bureaucrats assign them to schools that other bureaucrats control and with which the children’s parents or guardians have no say.

By trying to stop the will of a supermajority of North Carolinian voters, Cooper shows himself disdainful of representative democracy itself. At least he is not claiming authority to stop it by executive order or by flagrantly ignoring court orders, which is a trend among Democratic officials nationwide. President Joe Biden is the worst culprit: forgiving student loans after admitting he had no authority to do so, mandating “diversity” and “equity” by unaccountable executive fiat , and improperly trying to halt sales of energy leases, among myriad other examples.

 

It's not just Biden, though. Democratic officials are routinely vowing to ignore court decisions and orders (or urging others to do so) or refusing to implement duly passed legislative bills.....................(Snip)

Conservative consumers have finally figured out how to make their money talk when it comes to companies that peddle LGBT ideology including transgenderism, and Wall Street is taking notice.

“We were sold a false bill of goods, that this was just gonna be kind of a live-and-let-live kind of libertarian approach to ordering our life together in society,” theologian and Christian Ethics Professor Andrew Walker told The Daily Wire of the LGBT movement.

“I think what we’re seeing is this kind of the metastasizing, outworking, and growth of the sexual revolution just doing what it’s naturally prone to do, which is to be all-consuming and to say that there are no limits whatsoever,” Walker said. “I believe in something like the natural law that every single person has some type of access to a general moral knowledge, and I think that that moral knowledge tells us that preying on children, sexualizing children is beyond the boundaries of a decent society. I think we’re seeing a reaction to that.”

Matt Fradd, Catholic apologist and host of the popular podcast “Pints with Aquinas,” told The Daily Wire that any group promoting the LGBT movement “ought not be patronized if there be another alternative.”
