NC Lt. Governor Mark Robinson Slams News Outlet for Cartoon Depicting Republicans as KKK Members

“Is that who you are? Is that who you want to represent yourself to be in this state?”

https://youtu.be/26hVaUWV1Dg

You may know Mark Robinson as the man who stood up for law-abiding gun owners at a town meeting and famously declared “I am the majority!”

Robinson, a Republican, is now the first black lieutenant governor of North Carolina.

A media outlet in the state just printed a cartoon depicting him and other Republicans as members of the KKK.

WRAL did this on the second day of Black History Month. What a disgrace.

Andrew Mark Miller reports at the Washington Examiner:

North Carolina lieutenant governor blasts local news outlet for cartoon depicting Republicans as KKK members

North Carolina’s lieutenant governor is taking issue with a cartoon posted by a local news channel depicting Republicans as members of the Ku Klux Klan.

“It’s something we cannot stand for, folks,” Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson, a Republican and the first black lieutenant governor in the history of the Tar Heel state, said in a press conference Tuesday.

“On the second day of Black History Month, the first black lieutenant governor of North Carolina has been portrayed as [racist],” Robinson added. “That you would portray a black man, just because he’s in the GOP, as a Klansman …. the hypocrisy is mind-numbing, folks.”

The cartoon, posted online by WRAL-TV, shows an elephant, the symbol of the Republican Party, wearing a Klan robe and posing as a member of the school board, which Robinson is a part of.

See the cartoon below:

This is all about Robinson objecting to the infusion of the far left’s agenda in public schools.

ABC News in North Carolina reported:

But Robinson, the first Black person to serve as Lt. Governor in the state of North Carolina, and also sits on the state board disagrees. He believes the words could make students develop anti-American feelings.

“To call our system of government racist, that is an untruth as far as I’m concerned. I truly believe that is an untruth as far as history is concerned and it does a disservice to our students. It puts the idea in the mind of our children that they live in a nation that has promoted racism,” Robinson said on Thursday.

Robinson held a press conference to respond to the cartoon, and it was a lesson for all Republicans. He called out WRAL for publishing it and reminded people which party was on the side of the KKK.

He also noted that the person who drew the cartoon is reportedly a middle school social studies teacher, proving Robinson’s point about the leftist narrative in education.

Watch this entire video. It’s fantastic:

Are you listening, GOP? This is how you call out the hypocrisy of the media.

This is how you call out Democrats. The Republican party was founded to end slavery. The Democratic party supported the KKK. Why don’t Republicans bring up these historical facts when Democrats accuse them of racism?

Robinson deserves credit for being the one Republican who is willing and able to articulate this.

“Are you listening, GOP? This is how you call out the hypocrisy of the media.”

The Franz von Papen Republicans are not listening. Guaranteed.

I love fighters! This guy should have a brilliant future in the Republican party, but I’m afraid they’ve already reverted to being the party seeking approval from the left instead of actually representing their constituents.

I’ll look him up and get on his mailing list anyway.

    Is it true the Mitt Romney just filed a bill to award the cartoonist/middle school teacher the teacher of the year award?

    I’d venture to bet, the “Republican Party,” as comprised and so tuned today, will be substantially reconfigured at the retail level by 2022, and wholesale by 2024.

    If my reckoning is roughly accurate, the US is in a kind of Heraclitean vortex, politically speaking — a state of rapid flux and undercurrent, like none in its relatively brief history. It likely ain’t, therefore, as in your daddy’s or mommy’s day, a mere inability to step in the “same,” moving river, to make the point at hand; for we’re probably about to enter sociopolitical “rapids”.

It’s a bit ironic, the KKK was an arm of the Democrat party in the South. This should be pointed out to the historically challenged Dems/Progs of the world.

    Milhouse in reply to Romey. | February 4, 2021 at 11:16 am

    Ah, but they have a ready answer for this. It’s the famous (and mythical) “flip”. Like the earth’s magnetic field changing its polarity, in the 1970s the parties in the south exchanged places and policies, so that every Democrat from before about 1970 should now be counted as a Republican and every Republican as a Democrat. Neat trick.

    FOTin1943 in reply to Romey. | February 5, 2021 at 11:53 am

    Are you recalling DEMOCRAT Senator from WVa, Robert Byrd? that KKK leader? the one eulogized by Slo Jo and others after he died?

The racist Dhimmi-crats infantilize black Americans at every opportunity, portraying them as utterly devoid of volition, agency and independent thought and action. Believing, as the vile Dhimmi-crats do, that black Americans (and, other groups) must only vote for Dhimmi-crats, and, vilifying and viciously smearing members of these groups, when they possess the temerity to reject Dhimmi-crat orthodoxies and hold alternative views, represents the quintessence of paternalistic racism. The Dhimmi-crats view black Americans as their personal property, to be told how to act and think.

    Some blacks understand, but no where near enough. I benefited greatly through my teens and through most of my early life from mentors much older than myself. A few were black. One was an electrician, and another was an owner operator of a cement truck.

    The owner operator was Seventh-day Adventist, he also owned a gravel train and had an employee to run it. I paid them to haul in road materials. This project lasted most of a summer, he would come by at luch time to check on progress, and he and I would have lunch together.

    He was an admirable man, ethical, hard worker, proud to be self sufficient.

      Those early relationships with mentors and role models are hugely important and formative — no doubt about it. Anyone who has such people in his/her life is lucky.

      They are getting the message. Nation-wide, compared to the 2016 election, in the 2020 election black Americans’ support for DJT doubled. (Except in four counties that stopped counting while Trump was ahead. You now the ones. In those counties, Trump’s support among blacks was down by 75% compared to 2016. Imagine that!)

        CapeBuffalo in reply to DaveGinOly. | February 4, 2021 at 5:05 pm

        Sorry Dave, you can’t talk about election frau., I mean irregularities any more unless it is the ruthless theft being perpetrated by Republicans in NY District 22! ( see Marc Elias).

    Maybe no truer observation was ever recorded, gj.

Lieutenant Governor Mark Robinson is brilliant — I donated to his campaign and I was thrilled to see him win. One bright spot in an otherwise utterly depressing election year. I wish him well and believe he will play a big role in the GOP, in the years to come.

they have the wrong party, it’s the democrats

A Republican superstar. More like him on the way!

It’s simply amazing how low the democrats will go when a black person goes off the plantation and starts thinking for themselves and doesn’t toe the democrat party agenda. But I’m sure this is only the beginning. The democrats will go even lower still i their attempts to put Robinson back on the plantation. Guaranteed.

Comity and Queensbury rules prevent me from mentioning that the artist is Dennis Draughon, who may or may not teach American history at Smithfield Middle School …

    Well, whatever he teaches is probably not America’s actual history. At least not in this universe. I do sometimes wonder whether leftists are actually completely rational people, and it’s just that they have escaped from some alternative universe in which history actually evolved as they claim it did, and they don’t realize that in this universe it didn’t.

      Some people have brains that just can’t seem to understand data points and incorporate them into their view of the world in a meaningful way. The way they cope with this is to accept a narrative and reject anything that runs counter to the narrative as a lie. The actual facts don’t matter to these people.

      They aren’t trying to teach a set of facts that support the narrative. They teach the narrative with an occasional cherry-picked quote or fact. That’s why lefties are immune to facts. They have a worldview created out of a narrative that creates and supports some moral imperative, so you are not only mistaken about your facts (that are actually correct) but you are evil because you oppose the moral imperative by opposing their erroneous narrative.

      Simply: It ain’t about the facts.

        The Real Truth in reply to Dathurtz. | February 5, 2021 at 10:47 am

        With the LEFT it is never about “Facts”, it is always about “Feelings”! If they “feel” a certain way about something, that automatically makes it true. I have Liberal friends who have the most ridiculous opinions on different things, and it is ALWAYS ,
        “I feel that ——-“, and they NEVER want to listen to the actual facts !

      txvet2 in reply to Milhouse. | February 4, 2021 at 1:52 pm

      AOC said it: She’d rather be “morally correct” than factually accurate.

        drednicolson in reply to txvet2. | February 4, 2021 at 8:25 pm

        I can remember when Dems in the 90s complained about the GOP trying to “legislate morality”. 😐

      DaveGinOly in reply to Milhouse. | February 4, 2021 at 2:32 pm

      That would make a great “Twilight Zone” story!

      GatorGuy in reply to Milhouse. | February 4, 2021 at 3:16 pm

      The malicious liar and sociopath Howard Zinn’s, probably, or an offshoot thereof.

The graphic propagandist’s name is Dennis Draughon. A search engine investigation reveals no evidence this nasty bigot was ever a teacher in any school. His tweeter feed is here: https://twitter.com/dennisdraughon?lang=en

Please let @JackFascist know about this bigot’s violations of tweeter TOS.

Also, inform the nasty bigot’s employer, WRAL, about your demand that they be de-platformed, de-monotized, and pilloried in the public square for giving voice to such a nasty bigot as Dennis Draughon.

Robinson 20204!

    budmania in reply to MarkS. | February 4, 2021 at 5:48 pm

    Maybe not for POTUS just yet, but whoever the Repub nominee is would do well to select Mark Robinson for the VP slot! Trump/Robinson anyone?

      With Burr not seeking re-election in 2022 (which can’t come soon enough), NC will need a new senator. Robinson would be fantastic. A stepping stone to bigger things.

        JCC76 in reply to lc. | February 5, 2021 at 6:58 pm

        I’m a born and raised hillbilly from Western North Carolina, as much as I’d like to see Mr Robinson in office at the federal level I’m going to be selfish and hope he stays within the state for several more years. North Carolina needs good solid leadership at the state level, I am not sure how Roy Cooper got re-elected considering the rest of the down ballot votes but I for one don’t like it. We need more people like lt governor Robinson who are not afraid to take the race cudgel away from the left and brain them with it. They may pick the game but it’s up to us to play it better than them. Use their weapons against them whenever possible.

          Barry in reply to JCC76. | February 5, 2021 at 8:06 pm

          ” I am not sure how Roy Cooper got re-elected…”

          Fraud. He is a fraud. The election was a fraud. It’s clear. Trump won in NC. The republican won the senate race in NC. The republican won the lieutenant governor spot. So what does that mean?

          For Cooper to win, 250,000 North Carolinian’s had to vote for Trump, Tillis, and Robininson, and then vote for a despised democrat governor.

          No way in hell that happened.

    drednicolson in reply to MarkS. | February 4, 2021 at 8:21 pm

    He could be the first real black president.

Take a look here, https://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/2021/02/crucifying-jordan-peterson-bruce-bawer/ , for another iteration of sick/f**ked up, ideological hackery-based “journalism” — this time about another decent man of wisdom and integrity, like NC’s Lt Gov, but more distinctly, one just back from mystery-disease hell: Jordan Peterson.

In the meantime, kudos to the Lt Gov for identifying (the activity today par excellence) the libelous cartoonist in his case exactly what he is — in the public official’s judgment of both character and the relevant facts: “a hypocrite and a liar.”

“Silent No more” is the free and brave watchword in our current events. The battle of the socio-political, diametrically opposed sides, chiefly comprising today’s “liberal democracies,” is underway. See basically here, also: https://redstate.com/stu-in-sd/2021/02/04/silent-no-more-n321533

The cartoon was a test. Robinson will now be a target. The GOPe must destroy him. The lies are already being written.

Neo-KKK? A diversity racket. Some, Select Black Lives Matter.

That said, Baby Lives Matter (BLM). #HateLovesAbortion

Already taken care of. Didn’t you hear about “multiracial whiteness”? Pay no attention to his skin, Robinson is “multiracially white”. (The old term for this was “oreo”.)

    In post-apartheid Progressive South Africa, people of his color would be by lynched. Somalia, too. Diversity [dogma] is a progressive condition.

Black, Latino and Asian-American Republicans completely upset the MSM/Big-Daddy Govt world view . . . which conveniently ignored the diverse voices who spoke at the RNC.
Fortunately, their numbers are growing. We need everyone.

20~30 of the right candidates will take back the House of Representatives and Senate in 2022 and make Nancy Pelosi and Sandy Cortez very, very unhappy.

Notice how everything the degenerate left accuses others of is something they have done or are currently doing to others?
