NCDP Blasts Republicans’ Silence In New Video Following Mark Robinson’s Offensive Rhetoric

Today marks one week since Lieutenant Governor Mark Robinson spoke at the NC GOP Convention and still not a single Republican has condemned his divisive and hateful rhetoric. Today, NCDP released a video calling on members of the NC GOP to condemn Robinson’s speech.


“Folks always like to ask me, the very first thing they like to ask me is ‘Well, you talk about standing up for the unborn. ‘What about in cases of rape or incest?’…That’s not any of my concern. That is Darwin.”

“Once you make a baby, it’s not your body anymore.”

“I do not fall for this whole transgender delusion.”

“As the great Martin Luther King Jr. once said ‘it may well be that we will have to repent in this generation, not merely for the vitriolic words and the violent actions of the bad people…but for the appalling silence and indifference of the good people’ and I refuse to be silent,” said NCDP Chair Bobbie Richardson. “While Republicans are too busy pandering to a former president, asserting control over a pregnant woman’s body, and comparing rape to natural selection – Democrats will continue to fight for the dignity and rights of every North Carolinian. We will call out Mark Robinson for his disgusting language. Will the GOP?”

Earlier this week it was reported that spokespeople for the state GOP didn’t respond to requests for comment Tuesday, or for requests Monday and Tuesday for video of the speech.
