Cole slams Alday & Nosef

Mississippi Democrat Grand Poobah Rickey Cole issued the following statements:


Chairman Rickey Cole reaction to Gene Alday's comments:  

"When I first read Representative Alday's comments in yesterday's Clarion Ledger, my first thought was of the great damage such attitudes do to our state's efforts to make progress and grow as people who can work together and respect each other. 

"In an unguarded moment, Alday gave voice to an ugly set of prejudices that have crippled our state, driven so many away forever, and caused immeasurable pain, suffering and death. White supremacy is the original sin of Mississippi, and Rep. Alday stepped up to the microphone and reveled in that sin once again."

Chairman Rickey Cole response to Joe Nosef's comments in the Clarion-Ledger 

"I emailed Joe Nosef last night and urged him to repudiate Alday's remarks. I'm glad to see that he and other leaders of the party of Lincoln did so. But Chairman Nosef had to hedge his bet with the voters who agree with Alday by mentioning comments made by our sole African American Congressman about Phil Bryant. Here's the difference, Joe: Congressman Thompson was talking about one man, by name. Alday attacked an entire race. There is no comparison, and to attempt to draw one cheapens the earlier repudiation. Mississippi deserves better."
 
State Republican Party Chairman Joe Nosef on Monday said "we are very disappointed." But then he accused his Democratic counterpart of hypocrisy for not being as critical of U.S. Rep. Bennie Thompson for comments he made last year on radio.
"(Alday's) statements certainly do not reflect the views of the Mississippi Republican Party, its leadership or membership and are absolutely unacceptable," Nosef said. "I sure wish (Democratic Party Chairman Rickey Cole) was just as eager to speak out when one of his own Democrat officials has said something. Recently, Bennie Thompson said the governor was only against Obamacare because a black man created it, and Chairman Cole refused to comment directly. Hypocrisy is part of politics, but Rickey is better than that."

Here's the similarity. Alday was one man being an idiot. Bennie was one man being an idiot. Actually, I think it is stupid for either one of them to ask the other to repudiate their idiot.

The establishment Republicans are nothing more than Democrats using a different name.

Cole's Too Obvious said...

Cole is too obvious in his quick effort to ring the bell of racism. These little people with time on their hands and a desire to keep LBJ's dream alive will always quickly seize on anything they can to paint others as racist.

Regardless of how unpallatable some may find the remarks, there's one helluva lot of truth in the congressman's statements.

A racist? That would be defined as anyone who disagrees with or tells the truth about Democrats!

When McDaniel nearly defeated Cochran, the country club GOP was so shocked. They had not been paying attention. The same thing is happening again with the public school fiasco they let Reeves and the Speaker create. The Democrats will win control of the House and will come damn close to winning the Senate. When you let someone like Gene Alday become the face of the Republican Party which is now considered the anti-public school party in this state someone is not paying much attention.

Who? said...

5:26; Who, other than YOU says Alday is the 'face of the Republican party'. I've voted republican/conservative for years and never heard of him. I doubt you have either.

But, while speaking of 'faces', YOU people allow Ricky Cole to become the 'face' of the party of entitlement. Savor that!

Uhhhhhhh what? The face of the R party??? Dumbass at the keyboard @ 5:26pm.

So do y'all think Alday defeated Mayo back in 2011 without any help from the MSGOP? Dumbasses.

Anonymous said...

um, @ 5:26PM, you probably need to put your crack pipe down. Mr. Alday is not the face of the GOP. If you are so worried about face this and face that maybe you need to heel bennies fat ass over some of the stupid things he blurts out on a regular basis.

5:26 PM you might want to check the calculator battery on the entitlement thing. The $1 billion in MDOC money far exceeds all of they money combined the poor receive in this state.

Gene Alday is a gift from God for the Democratic Party this election cycle. You started out with 200,000 PO'd public school parents and teachers and now you have a face to put to that - Gene Alday. Now people know why the schools are not funded in this state.

I tried to post the list of Alday's campaign contributors but the post never appeared. Is that allowed?

alday , looks like your republican friends are dumping you fast .If i were you i wouldn't apologize . Heck you you still got to on to retire on the Government dole anyway. Trust us we we know .

Dunce Patrol said...

8:26; Have you ever considered proofreading before you post? Please capitalize, use semi-colons where appropriate and, occasionally, commas.

Not sure what this means: "Heck you you still got to on to retire....Trust us we we know."

Articulation is not his strong point, but his message is accurate.

Yes, Alday has received and will continue to receive a "guv'mint" check for doing nothing.

If he is opposed to government handouts, he should return all the monies he has and will receive less expenses he can document.


Anonymous said...

"Education = welfare" - elected official in 2015. Interesting that DeSoto County would task junior college dropout with funding decisions for one of the state's most successful school systems. Guess that didn't come up during the campaign in 2011.

Worth noting that Alday has some supporters here who agree with him and share his sentiments towards the blah people. Quite surprising that none of those supporters belched have the names "Jessie" or "Al" in a screed here yet; I'm sure it's coming, though.

Since we're throwing allegations around: why was ol' Gene at the ER? An erection lasting longer than four hours, I assume.

Grammar has suffered many indignities as of late. New crowd?

You are correct when stating that Alday is a gift for the Dems. Only thing is, he's a gift delivered by the Clarion Ledger, not God. Sure, he made idiotic statements that even a first grader should know not to make, but, if you think that Democrats don't make similar statements, you aren't too bright. Difference is, Clarion Ledger would never report the Dems that say such things.

Yup, 8:21. Wanted to see how long til you griped. ;-) Nothing was wrong with the comment.

7:56 Yep, you're right.

Along with over-saturation of rambling ignorant, verbose replies. I wish KF would take this thing off of autopilot and approve less postings - only those which ADD to the thread.

The appeal factor OF JJ has certainly diminished as the deluge clogs the read.

Screen This, Gumby! said...

Will 11:23 be providing JJ with a template for post screening? I suggest we start by screening out posts that contain such phrases as 'deluge that clogs the read'. You must hang out at Barnes and Noble most of the day.

Nope, not at all. KF is totally capable of keeping out your type of boorish ramblings.

Ophelia said...

In all this kerfuffle, nobody has been brave (or foolish, or politically incorrect) enough to point out that the essence of what Alday said was...true, quantifiable, and WHAT MANY OF US THINK privately, though we've been "carefully taught" not to dare whisper such honest observations.

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag.
