It is hardly “news” that The News & Observer would go out of its way to “stir the pot” with racist journalism. Can you say “Duke Lacrosse” boy and girls? But seldom has the failing newspaper been so blatant and shameful as it was this week. …. Reporter John Frank links Big Ed’s Restaurant to “Confederacy”. SHAMEFUL even by N&O bottom-feeder standards.
Prominent Repub Congressman Paul Ryan is visiting Raleigh on Tuesday. His meeting will be at the popular Raleigh landmark restaurant Big Ed’s. Big Ed’s has been THE meeting place for “politicos” along every point of the partisan spectrum for decades.
With the Democs having dominated NC politics for the past 100 years, one can safely say FAR more Democrat “deals have been done” over Big Ed’s biscuits soaked in blackstrap molasses and other downhome Southern delicacies than have eeeeevil Republican deals.
But now that a prominent Republican will be in Big Ed’s, the N&O’s junior political newshound – John Frank – reminds the N&O’s ever dwindling readership that:
Big Ed’s has a Confederate memorial on its wall….. OH NO!!!!
Yep….. the same restaurant which has served every NC politician of note for the past 30 years is now revealed to be by Frank’s obvious insinuation ….. probably a KKK stronghold and no doubt a gathering place for them what hates black folks including prominent Republican Paul Ryan. ….. and Jim Hunt, Mike Easley, Dumplin, Mark Basnight, Tony Rand, Deborah Ross, David Parker, Walter Dalton, Jim Black, Joe Hackney….. heck, maybe The Obamas have visited Big Ed’s on one of their many many visits to Raleigh in the past year.
And you’ve said how many times “that worthless fishwrapper cannot get any worse” – WRONG!
