North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper declares ‘state of emergency’ over school choice bill
Republican state lawmakers have planned to use their veto-proof majority to pass education reform
Democratic North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper declared a “state of emergency” on Monday in an attempt to stop a school choice bill from passing the state legislature.
Cooper released a video announcement where he declared a state of emergency, arguing that the state of public education is “no less important” than other emergencies.
“It’s time to declare a State of Emergency for public education in North Carolina. There’s no Executive Order like with a hurricane or the pandemic, but it’s no less important,” Cooper stated.
He continued, “It’s clear that the Republican legislature is aiming to choke the life out of public education. I’m declaring this state of emergency because you need to know what’s happening. If you care about public schools in North Carolina, it’s time to take immediate action and tell them to stop the damage that will set back our schools for a generation.”
Yeh, right, Komrade. Like, say, the damage done by the two-plus years of purely political lockdowns you imposed? Oh wait, no, never mind. Forget I asked. A most excellent response, one of many to be found at the above link:
they’re losing control over the minds of other people’s children. good.

Ace notes the truly salient part.
He’s literally suspending democracy — claiming the power to send the legislature home — to stop a vote the Teachers Unions and the Democrat Party establishment oppose.
So he’s effectively claiming that he can unilaterally cancel the legislature, at his whim.
The bill concerns vouchers — giving parents vouchers to choose what schools they will send their children to. Freeing children from the slavery imposed on them by the teachers unions, who view children only as State-Owned Wheat to be reaped and ground into bread for teachers’ salaries.
Montec says that seven of the 20 Democrats in the Senate are defecting to vote in favor of this bill. Republicans already enjoy a veto-proof majority — so Roy Cooper just declares that democracy is suspended, until the legislature stops attempting to pass a law his union backers support.
This is the real insurrection: The insurrection from the top.
IMPEACH THIS ANTI-DEMOCRATIC FASCIST.
I’d be down with that, sure—as long as it’s one of those .308-caliber impeachments, undertaken from a long way off, anonymously.
