Day 3: HB2 supporters' list stuck at 55 out of 821,000+ NC businesses.
Yesterday was the second day in a row where KeepNCSafe.org- a North Carolina Values Coalition website pretending to be a citizen' group- didn't add any names to its lists of mom and pop shops who are grateful HB2 has been passed, freeing their discriminatory urges to soar.
The public list- the businesses that want you to know, in advance, not to even both walking in- is stuck at 55.
The secret list- of businesses too skeered to go public, preferring to shame and condemn you, face to face, when you try to buy something- is stuck too. Since last Friday, KNCS has claimed 373 signatories, adding none.
But since last Wednesday the actual spreadsheet shows only 332.
Maybe there's a third, super-secret list- 41 strong- who just keep their spite and disdain bottled up in their heads. Or maybe it's just KNCS head- and Coalition assistant, Bubble, coping with math again.
Mostly, as their once-triumphant Sherman's March through NC's 821,000 businesses has stalled out, Nort Carolina Values Coalition has ben devoting itself to rigging the results of an online poll on repealing HB2 in a Raleigh area business journal. Gotta know when to hold, and when to fold.
