Art re: “…. bigoted backwoods” North Carolina

Backwoods NC

The subject HB2 v NBA screams CONTROVERSIAL so you just know yours truly would weigh in…. and that “my buddy” over at WCHL would too. Indeed Mother Chansky’s peripitetic son – Arthur – did.

A slight difference being I write to a somewhat broader audience.  Art, on the other hand, has an audience maybe best described as akin to Ivory soap ….. “99 and 44/100% pure” stereotyped hard-core goggle-eyed, spittle-spewing, faux-intellectual, NCGA-despisin’ “mainstream moderates”.

NOTE: “mainstream moderate” being the way every hard-core, spittle-spewing, faux-intellectual left-wing radical describes him/herself.  Using the confines of Chapel Hill as one’s universe – and that IS Art’s universe – that description is accurate.

….. it certainly helps that Art is as 99 and 44/100% ideologically lock-step as any Prius-driving, bitter clinger-hating, Obama/Hillary lovin’, multi bumper-sticker bedecked humanoid “over yonder”.

There is a reason that the first advice every Chapel Hill realtor gives a new resident is “whatever you do, never stray off the Interstate…. trust us, just don’t.”

So it should not surprise anyone that Art took to his WCHL microphone and Chapelboro column to refer to North Carolina as regards to HB2, asDeliverance

“…bigoted, back-woods”

Art is certainly not the first Chapel Hillian, nor be the last, to “go there”.   To Art’s credit he left out the usual references to NASCAR and Mayberry …. and a cheapshot at anyone / anything connected to NC State University.

As one who has written umpteen coffee-table books extolling Dean Smith as the 4th member of The Holy Trinity; Art has a rather narrow and unflattering opinion of that Raleigh-based institution and everyone connected to it.   Also the prevailing view of Art’s fellow Franklin Streeters of course.

Having worked for three years as Art’s partner on WCHL’s The Good Sports pre-game show, I can assure you that varying from a bitter-clinger-hating mindset to that audience WILL indeed bring the wrath of 50,000 “mainstream moderates” down upon one. I got more “get rid of that a**-***e” fan letters in just three years than all the on-air personalities in WCHL’s history. I use that “honor” as a resume enhancer. ….. Be assured Art’s extreme “mainstream moderate” POV is quite genuine.

So anyway…. Here is Art’s totally predictable take on HB2 / NBA.   FWIW…. if Art proffered any other opinion he would quickly become “whatever happened to Art Chansky?”.

It did occur to me that Art and our own Bre’r Kennel are in 110% agreement on this one. Bre’r being equally “mainstream moderate” for sure. Maybe I will suggest to Art that he invite BK over to WCHL ….. heheheheeee.

Art Chansky Re: HB2 / NBA and “….. bigoted, backwoods” NC

From 20,000 feet, North Carolina looks as bad as it can get.

The NBA pulling its All-Star Game from Charlotte is one of those stories that make North Carolina look like a bigoted, back-woods state. This morning, millions of people around the country are hearing it on ESPN and seeing the 72-point headlines, and drawing yet another conclusion that a leader of industry, entertainment and corporate business is, at its core, just part of the racist South.

To them House Bill 2 is an old story, a tagline for Colbert, Kimmel and Fallon. Most people don’t even know what the law means – just something about the LBGT community – whatever that is – making public bathrooms dangerous for our kids. They’ve stopped reading the details months ago. All they know is that it’s bad enough that Bruce Springsteen cancelled his concert in Greensboro, the NBA is pulling out and other states are banning THEIR corporate business from meeting in North Carolina.

    Your analysis of the LGBT terrorists is spot on. Definitely the most hardcore of the lefties. They will burn it all down. They are driven by the goal of totally eliminating anything/anyone or any institution that would consider their lifestyle anything but normal or moral. There can be no dissent. Dissent in their minds, indicates condemnation of their situation. Science, biological design, established religious beliefs or thousands of years of cultural norms mean nothing.
    .
    I got a buddy that has been a lifer in CH since high school. He definitely shares Chansky’s view of the rest of us outside CH. His social media feeds are a hoot!(but he sincerely believes that crap).

      I express pretty much everything in satirical zingers. It’s a style I think is effective IF one’s audience is quick enough to “get it”. Many here do “get it”… some don’t.
      .
      I have longtime friends who are Talk Show veterans across the country. They will tell you – The militant gay community / LGBT gang are BY FAR the “scariest”. They have just short of a suicide bomber mentality to blow up America. Repub politicians at every level are scared to death of them. This whole HB2 mess is a classic example of their Take No Prisoners strategy. It does not bode well.
      .
      As for your buddy “over yonder”. I’ve always laughed at ABCers views of hard-core UNCers. In reality “they” are worse than you think. That elitism crap is injected into their DNA very early. Nothing that happens with TGU is going to change them one iota. They are “sick puppies”.

      Yeah… I wrote about that little factoid 3-4 years ago. All those Diversity-obsessed nitwits who strut around UNC give hypocrites a bad name.

    I am amused by the NBA yanking the NBA game from NC. As a Gamecock, we had to deal with politics injected into our sports for decades with the NCAA boycotting South Carolina [at the NAACP’s behest] because of the Confederate flag debate. After the NAACP got the flag off the dome, they and the NCAA then moved the goalposts to say, nope, NOW we want it gone completely.

    Anyway, few in North Carolina had sympathy for our plight. Ah, but now! What seemed reasonable and rationale last year in NC now is out of bounds.

    This is the left. Incrementalism. Take a little bit of what seems normal at the time and make it “abnormal”. This is why other states ought to be standing up and supporting Gov. McCrory and North Carolina. What seems reasonable and rational now in their state now, tomorrow may the latest leftist hot distraction dujour.

      “Incrementalism” indeed. “Eating an elephant” one bite at a time. One has to give “credit” to the LGBT Terrorists. This has been masterfully played – economic extortion – media manipulation – fear mongering and knowing what % of the Great Unwashed only get their news in 140 character tweets. More info than that causes severe headaches.

    BL, you really pick (on or at) your friends on this HB2 issue. In truth it does summarize much about North Carolina over the past 6 years in which there is a “bigoted, backwoods” view versus a growing “urban/suburban” view. The Legislature headed by Berger and Moore represent the former and McCrory the latter.
    .
    The Legislature doesn’t care that cities get hurt, and even the HB2 over-reach of not allowing any city defined minimum wage shows that fact. The problem in part is that McCrory was not strong enough to veto HB2 and has given poor defense and a muddled compromise.
    .
    Chansky’s comments don’t miss the boat, but don’t confuse my thoughts with his or yours (no Prius here).
    .
    Was in Chapel Hill yesterday for a memorial service to an outstanding Minister of our Chapel Hill Christian Church Rebecca McCulloh who died of cancer two weeks ago. Aldersgate UMC was filled with her parishioners and town folk. No politics at all on things we should all be considering.
    .
    Last night I helped plan a Charlotte “Pride” float that will involve a “one-holer” complete with half moon on the door but requiring an HB2 birth certificate before going in. It should fit well in parts of the “bigoted backwoods”, but a Sears catalogue page will not be accepted.
    .
    Terrible, BL, you’ve driven me to consistent scatological humor which Chansky with his Tar Heel couth would never do :>))

      Anyone who is willing to “go public” with their opinions on matters of controversy (me, Art, you, etc) SHOULD accept that those opinions might not be shared by everyone seeing / reading / hearing them. Chansky writes to a very narrow-minded opinion universe so he is assured 99% agreement. One of the reasons I repost his columns is to remind AC there is a world beyond the east/west boundaries of Franklin Street.
      .
      I like to imagine you realize that with The Kennelian Worldview. I do love how all of your umpteen X 10 dogmatic opinions on socio-cultural issues are DECLARED by you to be “not political at all”. Just the way all you “mainstream moderates” are convinced the world should be. Conversely in The Kennelian Worldview every conscious thought “the rest of us ever have” is purely political. I give you full credit BK in actually believing thats true. Yeeeee HA!

      So your silly “one-holer” makes no sense. Like the usual radical leftists you guys miss the point, and do not understand the law. A one place restroom would not be subject to the law, and it being on a private facility means you as the owner of the facility would be able to do what you want with your “holes”. But that does not support your narrative so go ahead with the silliness.

        Doug, never try to counter 58WK with “facts”. He gets all flustered and will blame me, The UNC BOG, Talk Radio, or John Swofford.

          All this is akin to “never try to teach a pig to sing! It wastes your time and annoys the pig!” And whereas I consider myself a rather objective-viewing, respecting “do unto others as you would yourself” type personality, I frankly have had about enough of the LGBT thing. It has now begun to remind me of a sandwich order in the local pub……..”I’ll have an LGBT on toasted wheat with fries and a cold Schlitz, please!”

            Unfortunately The LGBT Gang is the Everyready Bunny of Democ factions. They are by far the most ruthless, aggressive and totally committed to creating total socio-cultural anarchy across America. There is no appeasing them or negotiating or compromising. Their goal is destroying America and refashioning it under their control. Totally different “animal” than AfAms, feminists, or any other faction.

          That is my problem. I just like facts too much and have a hard time restraining myself 🙂

            Facts are over-rated. The Internet and social media especially has proven the whole Fact / Truth Paradigm to be passe. 🙂
