“I’m not a Barry Goldwater Republican; I’m a Ronald Reagan Republican. If this country’s going to survive, we’ve got to work together in a common-sense way.” Lindsey Graham
This is the first in a series of exposes about Jack Hunter, aka The Southern Avenger, and how his irrational hatred of Lindsey Graham and his man-crush on Ron Paul has manipulated the GOP within SC. The Pink Flamingo’s first question: What right does an avowed LOSERTARIAN have manipulating the GOP and why is the Chairperson of the SCGOP allowing it to happen?
The irony here is the “Hate Lindsey” machine is basically Ron Paul Bot driven. Evidently Ron Paul and his minions are so despotic and so lacking in the very concept of freedom of speech that anyone who speaks out against him must be destroyed. Apparently Lindsey Graham is one of the few Republicans who has the actual courage to stand up against the growing tyranny of the tea party “patriots” and against the abject lies of the Ron Paul Bots. So – they must denigrate him.
Evidently there are two different versions of the Constitution. There is one for Ron Paul and his Bots and one for the rest of us. They are not the same document.
All Hail Ron Paul and his Bots!
Let me say up front, The Pink Flamingo agrees with at least 80% if not 90% of what the Tea Parties are attempting in the way of fiscal responsibility. They are NOT racists (not most of them). The average person doing the tea party thing is an honest, decent individual who wishes to make a difference in the country.
Then there are the petty, obnoxious despots who give politics a bad name. They are the “backbone” of the Tea Parties? If so, count me out, repeatedly. They lie. They cannot tell the truth if they were smacked in the face with it. They are a group of people who have made the real Tea Party people look bad. They are libertarians, Ron Paul Bots, Glenn Beck followers, 9/12 idiots, John Birchers, and third party losers. All think they are upholding the Constitution. They are a joke.
They believe in freedom for only themselves.
The Aiken Count GOP (pushed by the petty little Tea Party Despots among them) has condemned Lindsey.
“…Committee member Pete Seaha, who also is the Aiken County Tea Party chairman, wrote the resolution and introduced it at the meeting. The resolution states in part that Graham won’t be invited to any party meetings or events.
“I don’t believe the senator is sticking to conservative Republican principles,” said Seaha. “In my mind, the senator has disrespected his constituents. He has said publicly on a talk show that he didn’t care what they thought.”
Seaha said it was his understanding that 18 people on the executive committee supported the resolution, while two opposed it and two abstained….County party chairman Dennis Saylor and vice chairman David Lobb said they generally agreed with the objections to Graham but had reservations about it coming up at this time.
“I agree with the majority of the wording,” said Saylor. “But I’m concerned about the timing. It just represents badly-misplaced priorities. We need to be focusing on our strategies for defeating Democrats in November. But it’s done now. We can move the ball down the field and can be looking forward to November.”
Lobb said Graham had been invited to attend a party meeting earlier this year but had chosen not to respond to e-mails and telephone calls.
Still, “I would have liked to have talked with Graham first or one of his staffers,” Lobb said. “I’m a fair person and would like to know what goes on from both sides.”
The resolution chastises Graham for his support of amnesty for illegal aliens and cap and trade legislation. His votes in favor of left-wing federal judges and Supreme Court justices were also criticized, along with his “contempt and arrogance toward party members who support core Republican beliefs.”
In the e-mail, Bishop said Graham has voted with Republican colleagues 92.6 percent of the time during the current Congress. The average Senate Republican score is 85 percent, while the average House score is 88 percent. The American Conservative Union reports Graham has a 90 percent lifetime conservative voting record, Bishop said.
“Senator Graham believes it is time for Republicans to pull together,” said Bishop. “He will devote his time to electing Republicans in South Carolina and across the nation so we can add to our numbers in Congress and defeat Obama’s radical agenda.”
Seaha objects to what he contends is Graham’s opposition to the torture of suspected terrorists. Extracting information is necessary to keep America safe, he said.
Seaha insists that Graham isn’t paying attention to those who sent him to the Senate in crossing the aisle in Congress too readily.
“Sometimes compromise is a good thing,” said Seaha. “But part of the problem we face as conservatives is that we’ve gone too far in reaching out to others. We really want our representatives to become staunch conservatives.”…”
You need to listen to this interview with Lindsey where he was confronted by the arrogance of the libertarian tea party twits, and soundly routed them with logic. Case in point is the “Southern Avenger” irrational and slobbering devotion to Ron Paul. He talks about the Constitution, lip-syncs all the right songs, knows the secret handshake, password, and marches Tea Party. His constant denigration of Lindsey who refuses to do as Jack Hunter demands shows how pathetic Hunter and his ilk are.
What gives people like Jack Hunter the license to destroy a man’s reputation and consider themselves holier than God? A comment near his article denigrating Lindsey says it all:
