12 Year Old Publicly Schools Governor at Moral Monday Rally in North Carolina

Last edited Wed Oct 30, 2013, 01:21 AM - Edit history (2)

12 year old Madison Kimrey spoke at Burlington, North Carolina’s downtown amphitheater on Monday, October 28, 2013. She discussed the new North Carolina voting laws and very eloquently pointed out that “there is a serious leadership problem in North Carolina” and the current State legislature (among other things) was trying to reduce voting participation of the state’s youth. Thankfully, Madison does not have her head in the sand and wants to spread the truth.

“I AM NOT A PROP!
I am part of the new generation of suffragettes and I will not stand silent while laws are passed to reduce the amount of young people in voter turnout in my home state!”


It’s bright minds like this young lady that give me hope for the future.

Madison has more dignity, grace and intelligence than the Tea Party in the Senate and House. What a charming and articulate child. Maybe our "TP and Repuke" representatives could take a few lessons from her.

1. What an absolute delight!

Well spoken, well informed, and certainly NOT a prop. I hope we have many, many more Madisons! Kudos to this young lady for her involvement and her refusal to be silenced!

intelligent and thoughtful, how articulate they are from an early age.

13. McCrory wants them to eat cake, so to speak?

McCrory denies 12-year-old's request to discuss voting rights concerns

snip

Kimrey's hope was to meet with McCrory to talk about the voter ID bill, specifically the part prohibiting 16- and 17-year-olds from pre-registering to vote, as well as the cookies he brought out to protesters concerned about the abortion bill.

"I have a lot of friends who are 16 and 17 or are about to be, and they were really excited about being able to pre-register to vote," she told WNCN. "I have a lot of friends who are really into politics as well. They started talking to me about it, and I was like, 'I don't like that. That's not cool.'"

Last month, McCrory delivered a tray of cookies to protesters dressed in 1960s apparel outside the Executive Mansion. Kimrey was among those protesters, who argued the Republican-led measures were taking women back decades.

snip

"I was like, 'Thank you very much, but it would be nice if we could have some rights with that,'" Kimrey told reporters at the time. "I would rather sit down with [him] while we're eating cookies."

Kimrey said even though she can't vote yet, the fact that she lives in North Carolina should make her opinion matter.

"I can't vote and I don't have a million dollars. I'm not a well-funded group. I'm just a kid who was born in and lives in your state," Kimrey's petition reads.

Could happen. I wish her luck.

That don't look like no prop to me. That is a real live hum-dinger activist right there! Ha! It wouldn't surprise me if she isn't the Governor herself someday!

As a matter of fact, where on earth did they dig up that Governor? It's no wonder they are rising up down there in NC!

Go Madison! And go North Carolina!

And thanks, sheshe2!

17. A New Low in DU Undecipherable Headlines

 

"12 Year Old Publically Schools Governor at Moral Monday Rally in North Carolina"

Would someone like to parse this supposed "sentence" for me? because, "publically" isn't a real word, there's no verb that I can see, unless it's written in invisible bits, and no matter where you place a hypothetical verb, it still doesn't make any blinking sense. I must say, if the story gives one hope, this abominable distortion of English surely doesn't.

19. How do you describe this 'blinking sense'? It makes all that you wrote undeciferable to me.

Is the sense blinking? How does it do that? What kind of sense is a *blinking* sense? I don't get it!!

Indubitably, Jeeves, English distortion all about the parlor.

I am tired, I worked today. I misspelled a word and that is all you have to say about Madison's message?

Really that's it?!

You have been here for a week and you talk about new lows at DU, really? WOW!

Have a great stay, Hassan.

25. I have been here for a long time.

 

I just changed my screen name. And I'm sorry if I didn't recognize "schools" as a verb. "Publically schools," on first glance, looks like something meant to refer to public schools. I realize that nouns can become verbs in English, but that process can be overused. What is wrong with "educates"? Is there some notion that using real historically valid words is somehow elitist? And why do you folks insist on using newspaper-style abbreviated headlines in the first place? That is done in print newspapers to save limited space and, secondarily, to save paper and ink. On the internet, where pages automatically rerun themselves when words are added, it's more like an affectation than anything else, and, from what I can see, is simply meant to make it look like a website is newspaper-like.

28. If English is your second language, don't criticize at "first glance," before taking a second look.

Also, "schools' implies that a bit of correction is needed within the education.

18. All in US should register by 16 so can participate in Primaries before Elections


Otherwise they are not part of the voices that bring the candidate to the election and that's not right.

For example, if they are going to be 18 on election day but the primary was held before they turned 18 they were left out of the decision process in choosing the candidate who will be on the ballot on election day. This is one of the provisions that will be denied with the elimination of early registration and voting for our youth in NC.

20. I'm floored

Her words are sure as hell not of a coached "prop" but those of a fertile mind that will steamroll that arrogant yuppie turned governor in a debate now, let alone after she undergoes another 8-10 years of education, add to this the confederate reactionaries will be pushing up daisies due to the ticking bio clocks. Yeah, the future looks bright here.
