North Carolina health department secretary, Mandy Cohen — who was appointed by Democrat socialist governor, Roy Cooper — told the press that the Republican National Convention, which is to be held in Charlotte, NC in June, is going to be a b “big challenge” if the COVID-19 cases keep rising.

North Carolina has been one of the least impacted states in the nation with the coronavirus with virtually no threat of running out of hospital beds or other needed medical supplies. Further, the number of deaths per 100,000 people are among the lowest in the world. Despite this fact, Governor Roy Cooper has, at the behest of the incompetent NC Department of Health, has continued to lead the state in a seemingly never-ending shutdown as tens of thousands of people are displaced from their jobs and losing their livelihoods.

While the scientific and statistical evidence continues to mount that these shutdowns have virtually no effect on the spread of the coronavirus, North Carolina Democrats continue to fear monger and hold the citizens hostage in their homes indefinitely — one can only wonder why.

Because the Republican National Convention is slated to be held in Charlotte in June, the crowd of 50,000 people its expected to draw is now being used as a political football to threaten the cancellation of the event. Cooper and Cohen, Democrats, have the power to unilaterally decide if their opposition is allowed to hold an event in their state — one that may have the ability to turn the state red and threaten their own jobs — by hampering the event or canceling it altogether. And they’ll do all of this in the name of “public safety.”

In an interview with WFAE, Cohen said “I think it’s my advice to many entities which is to have options, have scenarios, because we don’t know where we’re going to be. I think you should hope for the best and plan for the worst.”

In North Carolina’s phased reopening plan, Phase II begins today, May 22, which still limits indoor gatherings to 10 people. Cohen has her reservations about allowing more than 10 people to gather by June and said that the delegates, of which there are 2,472 in the Republican Convention, Cohen says she would consider them to be “spectators” rather than staff, and only 10 would be allowed to gather in that scenario.

“If we continue to see our numbers go up and we aren’t in a different position, then mass gatherings are going to be a very big challenge,” Cohen told WFAE.

The question we have to ask is this: what is the real motivation behind threatening the Republican Convention in a Democratic-controlled swing state?
