(WRAL)   The woman who bragged about the power going out in Moore County in protest of a drag show has a bit of a history. And yep, it's pretty much what you'd expect   (wral.com) divider line

FTA:At the beginning of the COVID-19 lockdowns in 2020, Rainey made news for taking down yellow tape around swings and slides at a closed playground in Southern Pines so her children could play. Southern Pines police charged her with injury to personal property.

In 2021, Rainey was investigated by the Armyfor leading a group of people from North Carolina to the rally in Washington that led up to the deadly riot in the U.S. Capitol by supporters of then-President Donald Trump.

She resigned her commission as an officer in the United States Army in October of 2021, after being in hot water for her political activity.


This woman sounds like a deranged loser, IMHO.

During Sunday's press conference Sheriff Fields said Rainey's posts were "false", and while they did speak with her they determined her social posts to be not credible;

My guess is that she told them one of the shooters was a cop, or at least had family connections to the police department.

The biggest terrorist threat, and greatest overall threat to our national security, civil liberties and rights, and democracy itself, are right-wing Republicans.

America spent a great deal of blood and toil to help defeat the fascist threat to the world 80 years ago.  Now we have to fight it here at home.

Rainey claims to be the head of the Moore County Citizens for Freedom

Any time a group or law has the word "Freedom" in it, you can pretty much guarantee they are against freedom.
Same with a country having the word "Democratic" or "Peoples" in it. See North Korea or China for examples. North Korea has both in its name: Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

Rainey posted that she told deputies, "God works in mysterious ways ... I used the opportunity to tell them about the immoral drag show and the blasphemies screamed by its supporters."

Ah, old self-righteousness outweighs the law defense.
 
2022-12-05 3:44:08 PM  
I hope she spends years in prison, you know because "god works in mysterious ways".

Let's talk about Moore County, North Carolina....
Youtube Opp09pm_r68

Apparently there are plenty of old people in Moore county and the temp was around 31F. They don't have heat. If people start dying because of this, these farkers can be prosecuted for murder.
 
2022-12-05 3:44:25 PM  
It's interesting to me how these farks are ALWAYS part of some "freedom" group.

Cause they want FREEDOM to be assholes to other citizens that literally just want to exist in peace.

I know you guys love Reddit, but there's a fascinating thread from the citizens of the area describing the slowly boiling frog phenomena of crazy retired christofacists from Ft Bragg who are living on the government's tit and moved in. Taking over the school board, local elections, schools, churches, the police and fire departments and everything else in less than 25 years. All of that power and they're still farking terrorists.

It's almost as if they spent so much time fighting religious fundamentalists in Iraq and Afghanistan, that they became their enemy. I don't know how you fight people who think they have God whispering in their ear.

Another case of Freedom being converted to Freedumb.

"Moore County sheriff Ronnie Fields told WRAL-TV that he prayed with her and determined her claims were not credible. "Yes, we had to go and interview this young lady and have a word of prayer with her, but it turned out to be nothing," Fields said." (my bold)

I'll be surprised if this woman had anything to do with the power outage. She's a whackadoo, no doubt about it, and I'm sure she's damned glad it happened, but she's nothing but a rubbernecking parasite. I am very curious to watch this play out.

"Nonpartisan" in the same sense that you can have a "nondenominational Christian":  They don't have to support members of the Republican party in particular, just hardline right-wing extremists generally.

Ragin' Asian: It's definitely not an excuse, but there has to be some kind of reason these people are so damned hateful and destructive.


They're tired of losing. They always lose.
They've been losing since the advent of human civilization.
Every once in a while we have some kind of social backslide like McCarthy or Trump, and they'll get to thinking they're winning.
But soon, it all crashes down on them, and they are reminded that they have dedicated their lives and souls to opposing the one thing in reality that cannot be opposed - change, and progress.
They always lose because it is their function to lose - they always will lose, and they know it.
And it makes them mad, so they want to hurt and kill people like you and me, because we laugh at them, because they're losers.
Hurt people hurt other people.

I live in NC. it's early in the investigation of course, but the general consensus around here is MAGA terrorists with likely local LEO help/consent.

Now that the FBI is involved we may see some actual progress.

As tempting as rumors are, I'm waiting to see how this investigation plays out. If it were to turn out that there was any involvement by any LEOs, well....dammit, now I'm speculating, and that does no one any good. I'll say this: I predict that the investigation into this incident will go much faster than those responsible for it want it to, and I hope FO part hurts...a lot.
