Left/Dems continue violent, racist assaults on GOP governor

Gov. Nikki Haley (SC)

by NW Spotlight

The left/Democrats are continuing to wage a war on women and on minorities against S.C. Republican Governor Nikki Haley. The Blaze is reporting that “A South Carolina Democrat vowed Friday to send Indian-American Gov. Nikki Haley (R) ‘back to wherever the hell she came from.'”

The Democrat was either S.C. Dem Party Chair Dick Harpootlian or the Gov. Haley’s 2014 opponent Vincent Sheheen, at a Democratic Party fundraiser yesterday. (A Yahoo! News’ reporter tweeted that it was the Dem Party Chair and the Daily Caller attributed it to Sheheen.)

Gov. Haley is from South Carolina and her parents are from India. She is the first Indian-American woman Governor.

A year ago, the president of the South Carolina AFL-CIO was filmed smashing a photo of Gov. Nikki Haley’s face on a piñata using a baseball bat.

    Too bad so sad the Dem snits have flailed to take aim at the first Kenyan POTUS and illegal occupier of the Oval Office.

  • DavidAppell

    Finally you guys have something to compare to all those remarks about Kenya. That must feel really good for you.

    • .

      Interesting, the comment did not violate 1st Amendment rights and nothing was stated that would violate FCC language parameters – yet with the almighty power of BlueOregon.CON and what’s left of US, the message was stricken and OC fell prey to the insurgency of the Dem message of don’t doo-doo as they do, just obey their unabridged commands tho’ be they truthful or not.

      Nuts!

        Are you so bland you can’t even thing of your own name?
        Sad.

          DavidAppell, in snort, ‘long’ for PMS. Period!

    • What is your point? Just p & m’ing.

    • cecil91

      Apples and oranges, bird brain. The comment above was made by a politician running for office, whereas “all those remarks about Kenya” you can only attribute to the public. Anyway, you have nada to crow about as Dems have been guilty of as much slime as Republicans I think I recognize you from Columbia County, and as I recall, you are a narrow-minded-to-the-max leftist ideologue with a room-temperature IQ.

      • DavidAppell

        In fact, the article does not make it clear (and did not bother to find out) exactly who made that comment, and only one of the possibilities is running for office.

          Boo, do not persist, DA, albeit another Michael Mooreon in wag!

        Kenyan remarks from public officials:

        “On February 28, 2011, on Steve Malzberg’s radio program Mike Huckabee, a 2008 candidate for the Republican presidential nomination, falsely claimed that Obama had been raised in Kenya[138] and that “[Obama] probably grew up hearing that the British were a bunch of imperialists who persecuted his grandfather.”[138] Huckabee, speaking on The O’Reilly Factor, said that he misspoke and intended to say Indonesia, characterizing his own comment as a “verbal gaffe”.[139]”

        “In February 2009, the Cullman Times, an Alabama newspaper, reported that at a town hall meeting there, U.S. Senator from Alabama Richard Shelby was asked if there was any truth to the rumors that Obama was not a natural-born citizen. According to the Times report, Shelby said, “Well his father was Kenyan and they said he was born in Hawaii, but I haven’t seen any birth certificate. You have to be born in America to be president.”[114] A Shelby spokesperson denied the story, but the newspaper stood by it.[115]”

        “On September 11, 2010, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich stated that Obama could only be understood by people who “understand Kenyan, anti-colonial behavior”

    The quiet racism of the left continues apace. Look, really most racist remarks made by major politicians tend to come from the left, that aspect isn’t really disputed by anyone. What is disputed is why they are so regularly excused. The left in general, liberal democrats in particular, have an atrocious history on race. It is only the fact that they are never called on it that makes most people, even liberals themselves, totally unaware of their own history.

    Let’s just take one example where the left was actually called out. Remember the 200 presidential campaign? Remember how Bush was pressured again and again to address the confederate flag on the SC capital building? For whatever reason, it was thought that Republicans could be hung out to dry on the issue, so the press pursued it.

    That is until it came out that the flag had been put there by a Democrat. Then Sen Fritz Hollings. The media dropped the issue like a hot potato when they were called on this fact. It’s about time there was a little more of this.

    • DavidAppell

      I dispute it — you haven’t offered the slightest bit of evidence to support your assertion.

      • JacklordGod

        Which assertion, there were several. Do not reply “all” since you are referring to a single here with your use of the word “it”

        • DavidAppell

          Obviously, the one you said isn’t disputed by anyone.

    • 3H

      I think you need to do a little better than using Fritz Hollings as an example of a liberal Democrat. At best he was considered a moderate, and it really depended upon the issue.

      As you’re probably aware, one piece of anecdotal evidence does not make good evidence of your grand, and sweeping, assertion that, “The left in general, liberal democrats in particular, have an atrocious history on race.”

      I would argue that the far left, in particular, has a much better history on race than does the right.

      • JacklordGod

        > At best he was considered a moderate, and it really depended upon the issue.

        You don’t know your history then. Hollings was instrumental in starting the food stamp program. Hollings did later on become more conservative, but that was long after putting up the confederate flag and supporting segregation.

        >As you’re probably aware, one piece of anecdotal evidence does not make good evidence

        We are really going to play this?

        OK – First of all, that is not anecdotal evidence. It is historical evidence as it is verifiable as an official act. Hollings put the flag on the SC Capital, that’s not an anecdote, that’s historical fact.

        Next – Do you guys ever pick up a history book? I mean ever?

        Democrats blocked every damn piece of civil rights legislation that came up, and there were many, before finally voting on the 1964 act. Even then Republicans voted in way higher percentages in both House and Senate for the bill than Dems. This is not at all arcane knowledge, yet somehow you are obviously unaware of it.

        How about some other, considered liberal at the time, Democrats who just couldn’t get enough of segregation?

        Woopsie – Liberal Democrat and noted segregationist Sam Ervin. How liberal was he? Well, he chaired the Watergate hearings and no one watching those, even those who wanted Nixon out, would have ever called Ervin anything but a partisan for the left. Hated McCarthy as well as Nixon, was anti Vietnam war. Very liberal stands at the time.

        Who else do we have? Oh yeah, noted KKK member the late Robert Byrd (look him up). Liberal Democrat, pro abortion huge spender supported the Equal Rights Amendment and an ACLU darling,

        Sen. Richard Russel, Democrat. Lead the charge and gave final arguments against the 1964 civil rights act in the Senate. Hated McCarthy, Strident New Deal supporter, opposed Vietnam, again, a liberal by any definition of the time. Loved him some segregation!

        You want more? Ive got a ton of them.

        There simply is no arguing the historical record here – Republicans had proposed civil rights legislation numerous times prior to 1964 and were opposed every step of the way by Democrats.

        When the 1964 act was passed, Moderate majorities of Democrats supported it in House and Senate. Huge majorities of Republicans in both chambers supported it.

        OK – So now you are up to speed a bit on the history of things.

        • 3H

          Anecdotal evidence and historical evidence are not mutually exclusive.

          I’m not claiming that Hollings actions with SC flag were anecdotal, I’m asserting that using him as being representative of the left is anecdotal.

          Yes, Democrats did block civil rights legislation – conservative Democrats, rarely left or liberal democrats. You made the claim that it was left liberals who are racist. Again, you rely purely on anecdotal evidence.

          And what about the far left? I noticed you ducked that issue. The far left (socialists) were much less racist than the population at large: including Republicans and conservatives.

          So, who today (and I understand why you are so fixated on the past) is championing the cause of overturning the Voter’s Right Act? Is it the Left? Is it Democrats?

          The fact is your view of history is informed by you politics, not by a deep and sober reading. I will, by the way, test my historical knowledge against yours any day of the week.

          • Appell Sauce

            “Anecdotal evidence and historical evidence are not mutually exclusive.”

            Yes, you colossal ass, they are.

          • 3H

            No, they are necessarily not. Anecdotal evidence is historical in nature when you’re talking about historical facts. Sometimes anecdotes illustrate a point made by the accumulation of other evidence, Sometimes anecdotal evidence presents an insignificant deviation from the norm. Either way, anecdotal evidence is a form of historical evidence.

            Nice name calling however. Nice to see conservatives are dedicated sober and thoughtful debate.

            Speaking of which, so you wish to argue your point, or was that just an excuse to engage in juvenile behavior?

          • DavidAppell

            Another unimaginative loser who can’t even think of their own user name.

            >Anecdotal evidence and historical evidence are not mutually exclusive.

            Actually they are.Anecdotal evidence is simply one persons accounting of an event. Historical evidence is verified and relies on more than just a persons memory, there is documentation etc.. So yes, they are quite mutually exclusive.

            >I’m not claiming that Hollings actions with SC flag were anecdotal,

            Sure you are. you say “one piece of anecdotal evidence”.

            Good Lord – you can’t even admit when you have used a word incorrectly?

            Wow – Thin skinned much?

            >Yes, Democrats did block civil rights legislation – conservative Democrats, rarely left or liberal democrats.

            Wrong – I listed a bunch of liberal Democrats who blocked civil rights legislation and lead the charge against it. They were certified liberal Democrats by any understanding of the term at the time. Sam Ervine was a liberal icon. Lyndon Johnson, great society liberal icon, JFK – huge huge liberal icon (look him up, he was apresident even!) voted against the 1957 civil rights act.

            >Again, you rely purely on anecdotal evidence.

            No, I rely on the historical record. The votes are clear and can be verified, That is not anecdotal. You really need to look up the definition of the word, you are using it totally incorrectly.

            >The fact is your view of history is informed by you politics, not by a deep and sober reading.

            The fact is, I can produce concrete examples of my position that are verifiable from the historical record.

            You, on the other hand, cannot use the word “anecdotal” correctly in a sentence and have produced no evidence to support your contention.

            >. I will, by the way, test my historical knowledge against yours any day of the week.

            You just did, and you just lost.

          • 3H

            Again, you are wrong. Anecdotal evidence is a form of historical evidence. It’s not good to rely on exclusively, but it is a form of evidence. Used frequently in biographies, in fact.

            Anecdotal evidence can also be confirmed. It is not necessarily false or wrong. Just not sufficient, and needs to be used carefully).

            Think of it this way, anecdotal evidence is a form of historical evidence. A good historian, in fact, attempts to find as much collaborating evidence for any historical fact. That would include collecting anecdotal evidence. Sadly, sometimes all a historian has is primarily anecdotal evidence.

            LOL.. much less thin-skinned than you. Although, I do have my moments. 😉

            >I’m not claiming that Hollings actions with SC flag were anecdotal,

            Sure you are. you say “one piece of anecdotal evidence”.

            You seriously need to read the whole statement for context. That would, of course, prevent you from cherry picking which you so obviously enjoy.

      Ronald Reagan opposed both the Voting Rights Act and the Civil Rights Act. Does that mean that all Republicans and conservatives are racist?

      • JacklordGod

        You are correct, Reagan did oppose those

        Unfortunately for you, when Reagan opposed them, he was a Democrat.

        Again, your claim to better historical knowledge or understanding than mine seems entirely without foundation.

        • JacklordGod

          Reagan also gave the speech for Barry Goldwater in 1964. Goldwater actually voted against the Civil Rights act on the same grounds as Reagans opposition – he felt it unconstitutional. Now, if anyone would like to try and make the case that Goldwater was racist – good luck with that one!

          • 3H

            Wow, you’re just too easy. So lets walk this back a little. Senator Sam Ervin was a racist for opposing the acts (even though he did so for the same reasons as Goldwater). Barry Goldwater was not a racist… because he was a Republican and a conservative?

            See where I’m heading with this? Tell me how that one works?

        • 3H

          He continued to oppose them even after becoming a Republican. Or do you think he had an epiphany? “I’m a conservative and Republican now, so I’m now in favor of the Civil Rights Act and the Voting Rights Act!”
