Governor Pat McCrory was one of a few dignitaries who was supposed to grace the Moogfest kickoff with his presence. Then word got out that he wasn’t going to show. McCrory’s people say Moogfest’s people asked the governor to cancel due to a looming protest. Moogfest’s people said there was a miscommunication. Those threatening to protest on a Facebook page are trying to start something with a rally around “women’s health, state regulation of Duke Energy, voting rights and education funding.” The demonstration is to take place, anyway, at, of all places, the obelisk named after a former governor believed to have been a KKK Grand Dragon.
