NC Business Mocks Governor’s Desire to Remove Confederate Statues

(Paul Chesser, Liberty Headlines) Following a request by Democrat Gov. Roy Cooper to remove confederate statues from the grounds at the North Carolina State Capitol, a Raleigh businessman quickly produced a radio commercial that mocks the Governor, while promoting the owner’s tree removal service.

Cooper asked the state Historical Commission two weeks ago to relocate the the 1895 Confederate Monument, The Henry Lawson Wyatt Monument and The North Carolina Women of the Confederacy Monument from the area that surrounds the Capitol building in the center of the city. His petition sought the move to allegedly “ensure the monuments’ preservation.”

Capitalizing on the news development, North Raleigh Tree Service — which offers tree removal, stump grinding, debris removal and other related services — launched a promotion on the airwaves that inflicted a heavy dose of sarcasm over the actions of the governor.

“FINALLY!” the ad’s narrator says. “The Governor of North Carolina is focused on the REAL issue facing our state! No, not petty issues like crime, education, taxes or unemployment. The Governor’s putting his laser-like attention on – Confederate Statues!”

“He wants all of them removed from the Capitol,” the ad continues. “And we all know once that is done, all those pesky other problems will take care of themselves.”

At which point the business turns to the promotion of its services.

“North Raleigh Tree takes on REAL problems and leaves the weak, symbolic gestures to others. Maybe the Governor should take note. Call North Raleigh Tree….”

The NC Historical Commission announced today it would delay any decision about the monuments until next spring. On Thursday State Senate President Pro Tem Phil Berger, a Republican, called on Cooper to withdraw the request because he said it is not consistent with state law and is “little more than political theater.”

            Google it little 12 year old boy… or does your mommy not want you to? Friggin’ KnotHead!

          • Black Opal

            I’m 39, idiot. If I google a mass of gibberish from a neo-nazi with inadequate language skills, I can’t help but think google will give me a meaningless answer. That’s why I asked you to try really hard to state your point coherently. I figured you had a ~25% chance of being capable of doing that, and you failed, so I guess I was right.

            As usual.

        • Robert Becker

          Hey fool, are you going to learn that many of your so called Yankees are conservative voters that voted for President Trump, myself included. Without your Yankees our president would currently be the wicked witch hillary. I would also suggest you post with a little more class and decency so that everyone doesn’t take you as a fool as most probably have already.

      • Rolpho Signetti

        Hey moron! Can you not see… it is idiots like you that are getting voted out! In total denial! Ya gotta love these trannie freaks!

        Keep living the lie! Keep livin’ the lie!

        It will make it that much easier for us in the mid terms, and 2020! Your lies have been exposed!

        • Black Opal

          We did win the popular vote, remember? By three million. If you think an electoral fluke is going to save you more than once, you are profoundly mistaken.

          • Rolpho Signetti

            Well maybe you did, maybe you did not! The only thing I know moron, is my President Trump is in the White Jouse! Not some evil Hillary devil’ keep living the lie! Spin it all you want idiot!

          • Black Opal

            You’re going to be in for an unpleasant surprise in 2018. 🙂

          • Rolpho Signetti

            Ho hum… same old BS. I have been hearing this for a long time now! “you just wait” ! Well I am waiting! The American people are on to your little ploys! CA fake voters, Hollywood, and Lamestream media gamginging up together!

            Get over it fool! You lost! We were mad also when a certain monkey man won.

            You need to also! Let it go! Spin that MFer!

          • Black Opal

            Do you drool on your keyboard when you write a hysterical screed like that?

          • Rolpho Signetti

            Yeah! That is really out of control! What are you? A baby? No?

            Maybe not… but you sound like a typical liberal KNOT HEAD!! And, I bet you already know that!

            It must be sad to be you! Just hearing your liberal dribble makes me sick! I can only imagine what it does to you! Poor lil SmowFlake…

          • Black Opal

            Well, if I’m making you sick, I’m obviously doing something right. Good moral behavior is inimical to regressives like you. ^_^

          • Rolpho Signetti

            And it did save us more that once! Remember Gore?

          • Mort Leith

            IF you count the 5Million+ illegals that voted,,,
            typical of you libT ard commies

          • Black Opal

            You really believe in that conspiracy theory, don’t you? It’s all you have to cling to, I guess.

          • Jim Owen

            No. We have more to cling to. We have President Trump. There is no President Hillary. You say Trump is not your president. I say he is. Only one of us is right and it is not you.

          • Joe Pewter

            3 million profoundly fraudulant FAKE votes…dipsh/t

          • Reuben Lancaster

            And you are profoundly fukinstupid.

          • brooksmd

            As long as you libtards keep gathering in California, NY, and a few others, the electoral college will to do what it was designed to do.

          • Black Opal

            It needs to be abolished. Electing that orange baboon in spite of a serious popular vote loss is the last straw.

          • Glenda Trull Kee

            I AM SO HAPPY THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP IS MY PRESIDENT, I WILL SHOUT IT TO THE WORLD.

          • Robert Becker

            The only reason hillary won the popular vote is that liberals allowed illegals, the dead, poll corruption and people to vote in two states. This has already been established. The electoral vote was no fluke at all and that is what elects a president. You might want to study up on the Constitution so you don’t sound so stupid the next time you post. You also need to get ready for 2 terms of our current president.

          • Black Opal

            You really do believe that, don’t you? I almost feel sorry for you.

          • Norman

            In Chicago there are more dead people on the voting roles than the properly registered ones. My neighbors uncle has been dead now for 21 years but has never missed an election yet. If he was living he would now be 116 years old which should make the news as the oldest voter in history. I came from Illinois and this is a fact.That is how Chicago (though bankrupt) runs the state (that they have essentially bankrupted). I now live in Texas, I vote and love the people . I also served as a missionary in Alabama for 1 1/2 years and love the people there. We did much work for the extremely poor and the for the poorer county’s records by digitizing, organizing, and filing them so any record they needed could be found in 5-6 minutes where as before those records were either lost or could not be found sometimes in 15 days according to the judges we worked with. Truly wonderful people they were to us. We now work down in Reynosa, Mexico with the extreme poor. No we are not bleeding heart libs but yes we are “damn yankees”- conservative -yes and vote properly registered. I am proud of “our” president and yes, I stand for the national anthem. I have worked all over the world and USA is still the best place on earth despite the poor politicians we have had to suffer thru. GOD BLESS AMERICA!

          • Leslie Edgar Herrin

            When all democrat illegal votes are counted, Hillary will again be the big loser. Can anyone, in their right mind, with all our major problems, even imagine Hillary as president.

          • Wrightclick

            You didn’t win crap. The ‘popular vote’ (a meaningless number) was 65 million for HiLIARy and 70 million NOT for HiLIARy. And you call that winning? Common Core Math graduate?

          • Black Opal

            Doesn’t work like that. It’s not counted negatively. The votes are votes for candidates, not votes against them. Hillary got the most votes. That’s basic civics.

            Given that you’re the one twisting yourself in a knot to make voting into something it isn’t, I’m disinclined to believe it’s my education at fault here.

            Also, I graduated in ’96. Common Core wasn’t a thing then. ^_^

          • Glenda Trull Kee

            The only reason for that has been proven to be due to illegal votes.

          • Jim Owen

            Dem’s won the popular vote because, according to experts, as many as four million illegal voters in Southern California skewed the voting numbers. That is why GOP wants voter registration and Dem’s do not. They can’t win if only legal voters go to the pols.

      • brooksmd

        You’ve done such a good job at it. Your libtard party has lost over 4000 seats in federal, state and local elections in the last 4 years.

    • Born in the South and proud

      Amen brother…………….

      • Glenda Trull Kee

        yes yes yes they need to stay there or go to California

  • dosadoe

    Are there any pictures, statues and other representations of Democrat Governor Roy Cooper that should be removed because they are idolatry and embarrassing to the state?

    • Yarbles

      Nah, just shoot HIM.

    • Black Opal

      Cry, little regressive. The world is moving on without you.

      • Mort Leith

        Dumb N1663R,, you should be made Strange Fruit

        • Black Opal

          I’m not black, you know. A black opal is an exceptionally rare gemstone, not a declaration of race. The fact that you are ignorant of that truth is entirely expected.

          • Mort Leith

            You have the ignorant mentality of a kneegrow

          • Black Opal

            And you have the racist attitude the orange baboon is known for.

          • Joe Pewter

            its a shame “your” ignorance is not rare..no help for you fool

        • Naval Lint

          I see that you’re all having fun attempting to educate B.O., but you’ll never change it’s mind as it doesn’t possess one. It appears to be an auto-answering software package, located somewhere in The Sandbox.

      • Glenda Trull Kee

        NO OPAL, THE BUCK HAS GOT TO STOP HERE.

        • Black Opal

          How so?

  • Born in the South and proud

    Its’ nice to see a governor that is so in tune with the important needs of his state…… A complete idiot, likely trained in the land of kooks and snow flakes CA.

  • Glenda Trull Kee

    Now they want the HISTORICAL MONUMENTS removed, what pray tell, will they want next. because when you do this it will be something else. It always is. When will this stop. We must stop coddling these people. It goes from bad to worse each time. There will soon be no American heritage to save.

    • Naval Lint

      The NEXT phase for the LibProg National Socialists? Simple….they’ll start calling for the removal of ALL monuments in D.C. and probably the destruction of Mount Rushmore. They will ALSO require that D.C. be renamed, as George Washington was (GASP!) A SLAVE OWNER!!!!

  • temporary guest

    Great radio ad. “North Raleigh Tree” didn’t even have to repeat their phone number 3, 4, 5 or 6 times in an effort to install it in people’s brain like some kind of app. If I lived in North Carolina and needed some tree service done, I’d look up their phone number. In fact, I live half a continent away, will never be able to use their service and I won’t have any trouble remembering the name of their tree service company.

    Attaboy, North Raleigh Tree ! An advertising homerun!

  • Kevin Soravilla

    These statues represent Americans. The war ended with these individuals returning to the union. Robert E Lee was responsible for said reentry and was totally against a continuous of warfare. To remove these statues is a dishonor of our nations history. Atonement was made on both sides by the deaths of 600,000 union and confederates. I am a yankee and my great,great, grandfather served in the army of the union. I am totally against the idiotic decisions to remove these statues of said brave Americans.

  • Sonja R Copley

    We the people, need to end all this crap. The libtards, following the leads of B Clinton, Obama are trying to finish destroying this country. This is part of our history, race has nothing to do with it.We the people need to stop allowing them to manipulate and control our country.. might as well live in Russia. We the people need New Representations, with term limits and same compensation and benefits that we the people get. We the people need to stop letting them waste taxpayer money by their endless committees for what? Proven Trump had no collusion, but Hillary did. Proven Obama did. So why are we still listening? It has become a joke and this guy is infringing on rights. Also been proven Obama, Hillary have broken the law, why haven’t they been arrested?
    Are we just going to let them finish destroying this once great country?

    • Joe Pewter

      STAY STRONG

    • Nancy Thomson

      AMEN!

    • Glenda Trull Kee

      SONJA, I WILL AMEN THIS. IT IS SO TRUE. THANK YOU AND MAY GOD BLESS YOU TODAY AND FOREVER.

  • John

    Love the sarcasm and nuggets of truth.
    If you want to keep the statues for history sake, those who forget it are doomed to repeat it, then great. If your some yahoo who sees them as icons of saints and you pine for “the good old days” you need to wake up and smell the 21st century, you racist [email protected]
    If you want them down because they just disturb you so much you can’t function, then don’t go by them, grow a backbone.

    These hunks of metal aren’t causing any of the woes in the community or racial divisions in our nation. Their removal won’t FIX any of these problems either.
    we need to realize ALL LIVES MATTER

  • Carole

    Please someone do that to our idiot Mayor Jim Grey in Lexington, Kentucky. He is doing the same thing and making a mess of a nice city with his racist opinions. They do not care what the citizens think or the history lesson these statues represent. Our Governor is against it but NO the Mayor must drive our beautiful statues out of sight because of his own political views.

  • Stephen Pettine

    Phil Berger has cleverly placed the Confederate statues brouhaha exactly where it belongs, in the Hollywood-leftists-grandstanding milieu when he states the issue is “a little more than political theater.”

  • Rolpho Signetti

    OH I WISH I WAS IN THE LAND OF DIXIE!

    Eat it! Retard-O-Crats!

  • 1loyalamerican74

    Someone needs to go back into the governor’s history, and determine who, what and why his ancestor’s did prior to the Gov. getting a position in the State. Did he get born and raised in his present State. If not, go back to where he came from. Maybe he keeps his records sealed like the non-American Muslim, who stayed in the White House for eight years. He sealed all of his records from birth to education. He never had a “real” job, his wife had to turn in his/her attorney’s license, and no one seems to recognize having been in the school’s he attended. He did get tuition in one college
    as a foreigner.

  • J.B. Young

    You liberal terrorist groups stay out of the South, and leave our statues alone. You offend us! Shall we have you removed?

  • Francisco Machado

    Worth noting: The statues the Democrats are removing are statues of Democrats who defended state autonomy, a principle now anathema to Democrats.

  • Francisco Machado

    Although I find the removal of the historic statues indefensible and redolent of a totalitarian state rewriting history (it being remembered that these are statues of Democrats), it will benefit the Republican party if the Democrats can keep this up through the next few elections. What will come after the Democrat statues? Republican statues? Abraham Lincoln? The Bill of Rights? Is even Simon Bolivar at risk?

  • Louie Rey

    That’s what happens when you allow political correctness to flourish unfettered. Because of the melee in Charlottesville suddenly everybody all over the country are “noticing” these statues, some of which have been standing for over a century. NOW they’re offended by them? Are you &$#^&^% kidding me?

    BRAVO!
