You might be wondering why North Carolina insists on devolving with its legislation while the rest of the country is focusing on other catastrophes looming ahead.
Well, here’s a glimpse at the types of lawmakers running the state that’s STILL trying to ban same-sex marriage!
A North Carolina legislator has landed in hot water after comparing Abraham Lincoln to — we shit you not — Adolf Hitler in a Facebook comment.
Larry Pittman, a representative in the North Carolina General Assembly, said Honest Abe was the “same sort of tyrant as” the Nazi leader, who enslaved and killed millions of Jews and — yes, Sean Spicer, even used chemical weapons.
Pittman’s ridiculous claims came in response to Facebook comments criticizing him for introducing a bill that would render the Supreme Court’s decision in legalizing same-sex marriage inapplicable in his state.
One user pointed out that those who “don’t respect the Supreme Court and the Constitution” shouldn’t be in public office, to which Pittman replied:
“And if Hitler had won, should the world just get over it? Lincoln was the same sort of tyrant, and personally responsible for the deaths of over 800,000 Americans in a war that was unnecessary and unconstitutional.”
Okay, first off, most wars are unnecessary and unconstitutional… like the one we’re about to be in. Second, freeing the slaves wasn’t quite the same sort of tyranny as committing mass genocide.
Third, why the FUCK are we even wasting our breath trying to counter this lunacy!?
Take a history class, pal… and tell Spicey to come with you, while you’re at it.
