The Pink Flamingo is beginning to wonder just how many Republicans are willing to stand up to the Ron Paul Bots and have the courage to PURGE them from grass-roots GOP leadership positions through out the country. My sources tell me in Oklahoma the purge is on. Evidently in South Carolina, only Lindsey had the courage to stand up to these nut-jobs, and now they are taking their revenge. The real crime – with only a few exceptions, The Palmetto Scoop, CNN and The Pink Flamingo NO ONE is reporting what actually happened at the meeting. The far right is so far gone in their hatred of Lindsey that they would rather lie about what happened.
On Monday night the Lexington County GOP voted 13-7 to censure Lindsey. The Ron Paul Bot who engineered the illegal procedure, Talbert Black is NOT a Republican. Black, a Ron Paul Bot nutcase is the idiot who promoted the illegal procedure.
“…Talbert Black, of Lexington, believes Graham has tried to marginalize him and others, noting a comment the senator made in October that the GOP does not want to limit itself as a party of angry white men. “When you have somebody so willing to compromise with those who aren’t conservative, and belittles those who are conservative, we need to do something about that,” said Black, the state coordinator of Campaign for Liberty, a group dedicated to personal liberty and fiscal conservatism that spawned after Paul’s 2008 presidential campaign. As precinct president, Black proposed the resolution while filling in for a committeeman. Graham said Black, a 40-year-old software engineer, had never voted for a Republican presidential nominee; Black said he hasn’t voted for his party’s presidential pick since 1992….”
There is a war brewing in the GOP, caused not by Republicans and not by actual conservatives, but by the slobbering minions who follow Ron Paul and his freaky message of appeasement, conspiracy theories, and outright hate.
The very real problem is the fact that very few of those who are part of the Far Right and are not Ron Paul Bots have the courage to stand up against the fake conservative onslaught of their attack. Add that with the fact that there are very few Republicans who have the actual courage to stand up against them and we have what could be a serious crises.
Then – no one is bothering to fact check the story, just run with it.
Hotline on Call
FTS (don’t expect anything resembling factual accuracy out of them – they hate the GOP)
How long is the South Carolina Republican Party going to put up with people like Rich Bolen, Talbert Black, and the Ron Paul Bots who have made fools out of the Greenville County Executive Committee and those in Charleston? When is it acceptable for people who are rational Republicans to step in and pull the plug on the Ron Paul Bot Losertarians who are attempting to take over the GOP throughout the country.
The Pink Flamingo has been trying to get in touch with someone from the SCGOP for a statement. Evidently, if what state GOP chair Karen Floyd says is kosher, then she does not have the courage to stand up to these people and enforce the state GOP rules. Her absolutely unacceptable comment to the Charlotte Observer is a perfect example of the lack of backbone some minions of the far right now seem to have.
What do you do when a county GOP executive committee is hijacked by a bunch of people who aren’t even Republican, and it appears their sole goal is destroying good Republicans? The censorship vote by the Lexington County GOP, designed to hurt Lindsey was sponsored by someone who ISN’T EVEN A REPUBLICAN! According to Adam Fogle of The Palmetto Scoop the vast majority of Republicans in Lexington County, like Congressman Joe Wilson, are furious about what happened.
“…But tarnishing the Republican Party actually seems to be the goal of Bolen and what can only be dubbed his “Gang of 13.” Bolen was elected chairman by stacking the ballot box with Ron Paul libertarians who commandeered county precinct meetings and were able to win seats at the party convention. And the executive committee member who authored the resolution censuring Graham, Talbert Black, proudly boasts that he isn’t even a Republican. “I decided many years ago to never compromise my vote (lesser of two evils),” Black wrote in a brief biography of himself. “Since then, I have never voted for a Republican nor a Democratic party candidate for president.” Many of the actual Republicans in Lexington County, however, like Congressman Joe Wilson, were quick to offer their support for Graham.
“Graham has been a great leader for our state and party,” Wilson said in a statement to CNN. “I appreciate everything he has done for me and his tireless work in helping Republicans at all levels of government. He’s a team player. Ronald Reagan always said that people who agree with you 80 percent of the time should be considered a good friend. Reagan was a wise man and if we want to build a strong, vibrant Republican Party we should follow his advice.”…”
You gotta hand it to the far right and the far left. They are basically the same critter, only different faces, names and ideologies. They think the same, act the same, and hate the same. So, when a bunch of Ron Paul Bots, who hijacked the Lexington County (SC) GOP and they do (yet another) Ron Paul Bot censorship of Lindsey, it makes news.
The problem is the fact that the haters on the far left don’t give a rip about the truth. It seems the haters on the far right are no different. Then – with the lazy media in between, well – a decent REPUBLICAN doesn’t stand a chance.
Former Lexington County GOP Chairs Scott Malyerck, Katrina Shealy, Butch Wallace, and Lyman Whitehead have issued a statement and a letter of complaint to current chair Rick Bolen.
“...We think it is unfair that the censure resolution was allowed to move forward last evening. On the e-mail notice that went out before the meeting, there was no mention that any resolutions would be considered, much less a resolution to censure our senior United States Senator. When the time came for a decision about whether a quorum existed or whether the motion should be postponed until February, the demands of a vocal minority won. For something as serious as a censure resolution, the process should have been above reproach – especially as to whether a quorum even existed or if the people voting were even on the executive committee (a list which no one had at the meeting). The resolution should have been added to the agenda and sent out in advance, and every member of the committee should have been given a chance to participate in the process.
As it now stands, 13 people have now spoken for our county’s 70 organized precincts and the 23,000 Republicans who voted in our 2008 primary. This is completely unfair and very disappointing….”
The Palmetto Scoop, SC’s premier political blog, points out that the “censure” is nothing but Barack Obama style Chicago Politics. As usual, the Ron Paul Bots CHEATED.
“...South Carolina’s Senior U.S. Senator found himself on the outs Monday night with a small group of Ron Paul supporters working to purge the Republican Party of Republicans.
During a staged event choreographed by a select few individuals, 13 fringe members of the Lexington County Republican Party passed a resolution censuring Sen. Lindsey Graham for working toward bipartisan solutions to some of the most difficult problems facing the country.
But the resolution was offered under auspicious circumstances and, ironically, with the same Chicago-style politics of President Obama that Graham has recently railed against.
“No one can really prove that there is a quorum here but they are going to vote anyway,” Tweeted one observer at the event. And, indeed, there wasn’t — only 24 of the 63 executive committee members were present….”
Col. Pete Sercer, a retired USAF member of the Lexington Executive Committee left a comment on the intellectually dishonest FTS. Sercer was present at the fiasco.
“...It was pretty clear to those of us who were there that a handful of people, primarily those affiliated with last year’s Ron Paul for President campaign, were after a desired result – to censure Senator Lindsey Graham. They really didn’t care how they got it. Unfortunately, the Chairman of the party decided several questionable points of order in their favor – including whether there was even a quorum present, allowing them to push their agenda forward….On the e-mail notice that went out before the meeting, there was no mention of a possible censure resolution being brought up for debate and a vote. The reason – the supporters of the resolution didn’t want to give anyone time to organize against it. In fact, last night several Republicans thought the matter should be held over and brought up at the next meeting to give everyone time to digest the content of the resolution and the gravity of what they wanted to do. The Chairman ruled several things out of order, thereby clearing the path for the resolution to be voted on immediately. They definitely didn’t want to see this matter carried over to the next meeting because it would likely be defeated then….”
One of the strange aspects of the lies of the far right Ron Paul Bot insanity is national security and the War on Terror. You will NEVER see the Ron Paul Bot haters EVER laud someone like Lindsey for his stand on National Security. Ron Paul is basically a quivering coward when it comes to protecting this country. He doesn’t give a damn about security or our national well being, only his extreme version of how HE thinks the country should be. His slobbering and slavish devotes, such as Lexington County GOP Chair Rich Bolen, are no different.
“…, Rich Bolen, 42, won the two-year chairmanship of the Lexington County Republican Party over a GOP moderate. “I feel this election was … a reflection of new blood,” said Bolen, who will concentrate on attracting younger Republican newcomers to join the party. Party activists say Bolen worked the phones and Internet and sent out fliers to win support from Ron Paul libertarians, who had organized themselves in precincts to win seats at the party convention….”
RON PAUL IS AN IDIOT
The other day Ron Paul showed how pathetic he is when it comes to national security.
“...The terrorists “happen to be there, that’s true, but they’re there because we stimulate them,” Paul said. “We’ve fallen into the hands of Osama bin Laden by us going there and causing people to get so angry that it helps his recruiting efforts. He has written about this. He has said, ‘I want the Americans to come over here and get bogged down, bankrupt their country, and besides it’ll help my recruiting efforts.’ And we are doing exactly what he had planned.”…”
