Daily Kos: Mia Love’s ‘Job Is to Be Trotted Out and Displayed’ As Proof the GOP Isn’t Racist

Leave a comment

This is from NewsBusters.

After reading stories like this from these leftist blogs and so on I know liberalism is a serious mental defect.

 

Mia Love is, of course, a new member of Congress, but according to Daily Kos writer Denise Oliver-Velez, Rep. Love is less a legislator than a sellout who’ll serve as “another brown face to shove in front of the cameras” in the Republican party’s ongoing, insincere campaign to prove it cares about non-white people.

Oliver-Velez argued that Love won’t have much success in that role: “She certainly isn’t going to convince any black folks who aren’t Teapublican patsies already.

Right-wing funders, including the Koch brothers, can buy mouthpieces of any color or background—take your pick…She’s every bigot’s Dreamgirl.” (FYI: Oliver-Velez is a onetime member of the Black Panther Party.)

From Oliver-Velez’s Sunday post (bolding added):

It is clear that Tea Party Republican Ludmya Bourdeau “Mia” Love, newly elected to Congress from Utah’s 4th District, won’t care what a vast majority of black folks think about her, since her job is to be trotted out and displayed as part of the faces of color brigade to prove that Teapublicans aren’t bigots…

The Teapublican Party now has another brown face to shove in front of the cameras to somehow convince white people that the party isn’t racist

She certainly isn’t going to convince any black folks who aren’t Teapublican patsies already. Right-wing funders, including the Koch brothers, can buy mouthpieces of any color or background—take your pick…

She’s every bigot’s Dreamgirl.

…I feel sorry for her. Sort of. Her parents fled here to escape, Papa Doc’s Ton Ton Macoute, and didn’t suffer the same fate as the “Haitian boat people.” I can still see the images all those dead Haitians whose bodies washed up on the shores of Florida and remember with anger that most of those who made it alive were turned back (unlike the warm embrace we gave to anti-Fidelistas). She can count herself lucky, but instead she has embraced the gift to grift for the right wing on the bones of those who never made it…

…Black Americans have the right to be Republicans, join the Tea Party, and freely express the “why” of it. Women have a right to be actively anti-feminist. I have the right to critique the positions they take.

Mia Love, I dub thee hypocrite…

Love is caught in a trap of her own making. Perhaps she does believe her race has nothing to do with anything. But then why did she become a part of the Reince Priebus’ fantasy plans for Republican minority outreach?…

Let me repeat those words from my beloved Zora Neale [Hurston], whose birthday anniversary just passed on Jan. 7:

All my skinfolk ain’t kinfolk.

No love in my heart for Love, who has turned her back on those who should be kin.

Virginia Democrat: Those who support the NRA ‘pure trash’

1 Comment

This is from the Examiner.

Is this a sign of things to come from the DemocRats?

I look for the Dem’s to go full-blown Communist.

 

 

On Saturday, Mike Dickinson, the Virginia Democrat seeking the House seat currently held by Rep. Eric Cantor, R-Va., continued his online campaign of hate by denigrating all supporters of the NRA as “puretrash.”

 

What’s obscene to you? @HustlerMag or a group like the @NRA that supports trophy hunting and elephant killing,” hetweeted Friday.

“What on Earth does this have to do with your political campaign?” one person asked.

“[T]hat the NRA is a god awful fear mongering group and those who support the NRA are pure trash,” Dickinson said inresponse.

This is not the first time Dickinson has attacked members of the NRA.

In February, he called gun owners “little children,” saying guns needs to be titled and registered. He was also schooled after falsely calling the NRA “descendents of the KKK.”

Dickinson’s campaign — if it can actually be called that — has so far consisted primarily of unhinged, largely fact-free, hateful rants on Twitter.

In one tweet, for example, he called those who oppose abortion stupid, and said those who watch Fox News “ate paint chips as children.”

He has also demanded stores like Hobby Lobby close down, calling them “a wart on the face of lady liberty in the United States.”

Dickinson caught national attention when he said Fox News lies all the time and called for the FCC to monitor and regulate the network in a fashion reminiscent of the former Soviet Union.

While Dickinson’s campaign of unhinged hate is apparently designed to attract his far-left wing base — those known as “low-information voters” — it will not propel him to victory in November.

Dickinson has been called “the next Alan Grayson” by the Daily Kos, but Dickinson is nowhere near as popular among fringe progressives as Grayson.

His Facebook page, for example, has remained stuck at 27 supporters for weeks.

Democrats in Spotsylvania County are also unsure about Dickinson due to his inexperience and connections with local adult businesses.

Making matters worse, a post at Red Knuckle Politics brings to light some of Dickinson’s seedier online activities, including what the article says is his fondness for sending tweets to women in the pornographic film industry using alternate identities.

Tim O’Donnell said he has confirmation of Dickinson’s alternate identities through one of his online followers.

“One of his deleted accounts, confirmed by the same sources, is @theshieldVCU. Another is @MikeD_PhD, for which I provide screenshots of his comments from there in which he says offensive and misogynistic things about women, insulting people by speaking about their weight, requests to show their breasts, and other things too lewd for publishing here,” he said.

O’Donnell said another account is used to send messages and pictures that “are beyond the decorum even for the industry from which Mr. Dickinson has made his living.”

We reached out to Dickinson for comment, but so far have received no response.

Instead, he chose to smear supporters of the NRA as “pure trash.”
