While I may have hated what Saul Alinsky stood for, I must admit his Rules for Radicals does come in handy when pushing for gun rights. Grass Roots North Carolina has learned this lesson and plans to unveil their version of Rule No. 5 tomorrow. That rule states "Ridicule is man's most potent weapon" and GRNC plans to make the most of it. They will have a new mascot to go along with their bulldog. The new mascot is named Squish the Magic RINO. You can guess where that name came from.
To protest the failure of the North Carolina Senate to bring HB 746 which included permitless concealed carry to the floor for a vote as well as to highlight those Republicans in the House who voted against the bill, they plan to have a rally in Raleigh against these Republicans in name only. Given that the Republicans achieved a super-majority in both house of the General Assembly through the hard work, efforts, and votes of gun owners, they need to be reminded that they should be dancing those that brung them. It seems that some of these Republicans would rather be beholden to Michael Bloomberg than to the voters of their own districts.
I think Squish makes a perfectly fine addition to the roster of mascots. Perhaps, in addition to Squish, there needs to be one called Squirmy because that is what I want to see these Rino guys and gals squirm.
Gun group to lampoon GOP RINOs
Failure of Senate to pass HB 746 will be topic of demonstration at NC General Assembly
At 11:00 am on Thursday, August 3, Grass Roots North Carolina will hold NC Senate Republicans accountable for the Senate’s failure to pass House Bill 746 (“Omnibus Gun Changes”) which would, among other things, bring North Carolina on board with the 13 states which have already passed permitless carry of concealed handguns. The event will be held at the Halifax Mall at the NC General Assembly.
Meet “Squish the Magic R.I.N.O." & Friends!
To highlight the fact that some GOP senators (including Senator Phil Berger?) seem to be behaving like “Republicans in Name Only” (R.I.N.O.s), GRNC will be introducing a new mascot, “Squish the Magic R.I.N.O.” and friends. If Republicans fail to pass HB 746 during or before the 2018 short session of the General Assembly, “Squish” could become a regular feature at GOP campaign events.
Take advantage of this highly photogenic event!
Squish and his friends will be cavorting under a highly photogenic banner proclaiming:
“NC Senate R.I.N.Os:
Giving Gun Voters ‘The Horn’ Since…?”
When: August 3 at 11:00 AM EDT
Where: Halifax Mall, NC General Assembly, 16 West Jones Street, Raleigh, NC 27601
