Esse Quam Videri

Do watch this, from 2013.

At 94, Rosanell Eaton is still fed up and fired up, as the lead plaintiff in this year's action against voter suppression.

Yet, of all the things that North Carolina has been doing in recent years, which is the one that has attracted national and international attention?

And doesn't that say it all?

Donald Trump has just intervened. On the liberal side, if it can be so described.

His view may seem very much an expression of "New York values". Perhaps it is.

But in enacting its voter suppression laws, North Carolina pointed out that it was only conforming itself to the situation in New York.

As we have seen in the last couple of days. "New York values", indeed.

Think on.

  1. If what we have just seen in NYC happened in the South, federal martial law would be imposed on the offending state.
