Michelle Malkin is celebrating. Then again, she is part of the whole ugly anti-Republican movement.
Greenville’s anti-Semitic tea party freaks destroyed Bob Inglis. Now they are after Lindsey. Evidently a 90% lifetime ACU rating isn’t good enough for them, but then tea party freaks aren’t conservatives. They are Glenn Beck brainwashed losertarians who do not believe in allowing people to have freedom of speech or even freedom of thought!
Bob Inglis, who was recently defeated in SC’s 4th Congressional District, did a recent interview. He nails it:
“...had also ticked off right-wingers in the state’s 4th Congressional District by urging tea-party activists to “turn Glenn Beck off” and by calling on Rep. Joe Wilson (R-S.C.) to apologize for shouting “You lie!” at Obama during the president’s State of the Union address. For this, Inglis, who boasts (literally) a 93 percent lifetime rating from the American Conservative Union, received the wrath of the tea party, losing to Gowdy 71 to 29 percent. In the weeks since, Inglis has criticized Republican House leaders for acquiescing to a poisonous, tea party-driven “demagoguery“ that he believes will undermine the GOP’s long-term credibility. And he’s freely recounting his frustrating interactions with tea party types, while noting that Republican leaders are pushing rhetoric tainted with racism, that conservative activists are dabbling in anti-Semitic conspiracy theory nonsense, and that Sarah Palin celebrates ignorance….”
In an interesting vote, in a county where there are 141 organized precincts, 61 voted to basically excommunicate Lindsey Graham. Two voted against the censure. Strange, isn’t it? Then again, these are the same people who destroyed Bob Inglis, who had a 93% lifetime ACU rating. He wasn’t good enough. When a man with a 93% ACU rating is NOT GOOD ENOUGH – then Greenville County’s GOP has the problem, not Bob Inglis and certainly NOT Lindsey Graham.
These people are out of control, brainwashed by Glenn Beck and talk radio!
“…“THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, the Greenville County Republican Party hereby issues this formal rebuke of Senator Graham for his cooperation and support of President Obama and the Democratic Party’s liberal agenda for the United States,” the resolution reads. The resolution says Graham will no longer be invited to participate in meetings or other events sponsored by the Greenville County Republican Party, and alleges Graham has “abandoned the Republican platform.”…”
Since when did Ron Paul Bot Losertarians control the GOP in SC?
Would someone please explain to The Pink Flamingo why this man is NOT a good Republican?
Do you honestly want to live in a country where Tea Party “patriots” call the shots? Do you want to live in a country where Tea Party “patriots” censor and prevent everyone who disagrees with them from having a say? Someone needs to tell these “patriots” what freedom is actually about, before they destroy ours.
The Pink Flamingo has been telling you that the Tea Party “patriots” only believe in freedom of speech for themselves. They only believe they are right. Anyone who disagrees with them must be destroyed.
It’s too bad our talking heads don’t wake up and smell the rotten tea leaves and see the anti-freedom monsters they have created.
The Greenville County GOP, primarily ruled by Ron Paul Bots, has decided that Lindsey is no longer a good enough Republican to be invited to GOP events!
Kevin Bishop, Lindsey’s spokesman commented:
“…”While some of our friends in Greenville may not want to meet with Senator Graham, his door will always be open to them. Senator Graham respects those who disagree with him, but he strongly believes we need to keep an open dialogue,” Graham spokesman Kevin Bishop said Tuesday in a statement to CNN.
Bishop went on to note that two of the Greenville County GOP’s policy complaints were supported by former President George W. Bush, and that the same party committee censured Graham in 2007.
“In this last session of Congress, Senator Graham has voted with the Republican leadership over 92 percent of the time. And according to the American Conservative Union, he has a 90 percent lifetime conservative voting record. As to his votes on TARP and his support for immigration reform, on both issues he was following the leadership of our Republican President George W. Bush,” Bishop said.
In January, the Lexington County Republican Party’s censured Graham for supporting the 2008 financial bailout and working towards a compromise on cap-and-trade legislation.
At the time, Graham defended his conservative credentials.
“I have tried my best to be a conservative that can grow and build this party,” Graham said, according to The State newspaper. “They have no desire to do that – I do.”..”
As a former SC county GOP Chair, I can honestly say this is disgusting. I think it probably also violates a bunch of state rules, but SC’s GOP Chair, Karen Floyd is so busy pandering to the likes of the tea parties and Ron Paul Bots that she will never step in and rebuke or stop the insanity.
“...The Greenville Republican Party has rebuked U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham for what it calls his cooperation and support of President Barack Obama and the Democrats’ liberal agenda. The party said in a resolution on Monday that the South Carolina senator has voted for a bank bailout program that will increase the national debt, in favor of 2 of Obama’s liberal U.S. Supreme Court nominees and has promoted amnesty for illegal immigrants. It also says Graham has “repeatedly demonstrated contempt and arrogance” to GOP members who support party beliefs. The party says Graham will no longer be invited to attend Greenville GOP meetings and events….”
Umm… no mention that the bank bailout has been paid back, with interest by every company but AIG.
Then the tea party freaks from SC are demanding he resign! The demands came the same day as the alleged Greenville GOP rebuke. Makes you wonder who is running things – and how well co-ordinated these freaks are.
“...Tea Parties including Tea Party of the Lakelands, Laurens Tea Party and Tea Parties from Seneca, Boiling Springs, Columbia, Myrtle Beach, Spartanburg, Anderson, Florence, Aiken, Hilton Head, Fairfield, and Greenville issued the censure. The SC Black Conservatives movement, Patriots R Us of Walterboro, and RINO Hunt have also signed on.
In a press release issued on Monday the Tea Parties said they will work to replace Graham in 2014 if he does not step down from his Senate seat….”
ATTACK OF THE RON PAUL BOTS
It is becoming increasingly obvious Lindsey is being targeted by losertarian Ron Paul Bots. There is something intrinsically wrong when a state political party allows itself to be hijacked by a bunch of fringe kooks who worship an unbalnced demigod.
