Showing the CoCC the door

Recently a Republican State Senator spoke to a national meeting of the Council of Conservative Citizens in Jackson, MS. Some local liberals as well as the local progressive weekly alternative rag sharply criticized her for speaking at the event and the state Republican party chairman for not more forcefully condemning her actions. Since I and many others don't know much about the Council of Conservative Citizens, I decided to check out their website. Buckle your seatbelts.

(picture used on Alabama Chapter's website)

On the national organization's website, six of the nine "stories" posted are about race-related matters. For a group that touts itself as a leading conservative organization, there is no mention of taxes, deficit spending, expanding government, the erosion of civil liberties but there are more than a few words given to what blacks are doing to whites.

The blogs make for interesting reading. One accuses New York of "declaring war on white people". It blames the train operator's falling asleep causing the train wreck in Washington, DC on "diversity hiring", never mind that DC is heavily minority in population (Someone should tell him that in DC, hiring a white person would be the diversity hire.). He also mentions blacks robbing graves in Chicago.

Then there is the anti-Semitism. The same blogger refers to an L.A. Times article about Michael Jackson as a "piece of Jewish garbage" and opines about Steve McNair's death:

"McNair may have been a decent guy, but nothing can hide the obvious truth that wherever blacks go, crime, death, and misery follow. The sports channels will recount all McNair’s stats as they lionize him as a hero and great American. I’ll certainly rank him well above Michael Jackson, but let’s not get carried away. Could you imagine the howls of laughter if the sports TV Jews like Chris Berman, Rich Eisen, Linda Cohn, (the list could go on and on)"

Christians don't escape their ire as the Family Research Council, attacked by liberals everywhere for being conservative in nature, apparently doesn't meet his definition of conservatism:
"Tony Perkins, head of the Family Research Council, and the evangelical’s man in DC, recently held a rally in the nation’s capital to oppose same-sex marriage. There were several speakers at the rally -- Perkins, the FRC’s Uncle Tom “Bishop” Harry Jackson, some brown guys who can’t speak English, etc...".

He even bashes Billy Graham. You got it. Even Billy Graham is the enemy.

Other money quotes from this blogger:

"The sooner the GOP collapses, and is replaced by a party that will speak up for white people, the better."

"Anyone who thinks free speech can survive in a multiracial America is dreaming."

Another blog on the website has the headline "Saving the White Race" and has a few things to say:
"The civility in this Forced Union is 3000 miles wide, but only an inch deep. And anytime you come into contact with murderous nxxxs or other non-Whites, that civility has collapsed." 

So murderous whites don't cause a collapse in civility? Oooook.

Over at the Alabama chapter's website there is a post titled "Stuff black people don't like" with the above picture and a link to a website containing black jokes. The chapter has a list of "recommended reading". Here is a taste of the vintage found in this winery of racism:
  • The Citizens’ Council: Organized Resistance to the Second Reconstruction, 1954-64″ by Neil R. McMillan
  • You and Segregation” by former Georgia Sen. Herman E. Talmadge
  • Mississippi’s Defiant Years, 1953-73″ by Erle Johnston
  • The Authentic History of the Ku Klux Klan, 1865-1877″ by Susan Davis
  • Take Your Choice: Separation or Mongrelization” by former Mississippi Sen. Theodore Bilbo
This organization is not a conservative group as conservatives believe in a limited government that is color-blind, free-market capitalism, strong national defense, and civil liberties for all. Racism has no place in conservatism or the Republican Party. Mississippi Republicans have NO BUSINESS WHATSOEVER speaking at one of these events and the chairman needs to condemn this group in no uncertain terms as racism and anti-Semitism have no place in the Republican big tent.

Chairman Brad White should forbid any Republican from speaking at one of these events. A group like this shouldn't get the attention it has recently as it is a fringe group but since a Republican State Senator decided to welcome them, the onus is on the Republican Party to show these guys the door and make it clear the Council is not welcome to Republicans or true conservatives. William F. Buckley and others threw out the Birchers when it became clear the Birchers were not true conservatives. Mr. White, Governor Barbour, and others should do the same and show the Council of Conservative Citizens the door.

A good read until this point "Chairman Brad White should forbid any Republican from speaking at these events."

Political parties aren't armies, and at least for the meantime our country is still free. Elected officials are free to do whatever idiotic things they want to do (including speaking to racist assholes.)

This is analogous to Michael Steele should forbidding all elected officials from having extra-marital affairs.

The republicans should separate themselves from these racist loons as quickly, clearly, and unambiguously as possible. It makes it really hard for those of us who consider ourselves conservatives when some fools are giving our political opponents ammunition with which to pummel us in the media.

Kingfish said...

He can't control what they speak but he can make it clear they do not represent the Republican Party and anyone who speaks to one of their events is going to face a censure and get no help from the Republican Party.

To say speaking to a racist anti-Semitic group is no more controllable than having sex is rather disingenious and specious.

That CoCC are neo-Nazis and Kluxers who have made enough money to buy a suit and visit a dentist shouldn't be a news flash to anyone

We've gotten too intellectually lazy to look for substance, judge on more than superficial appearance or check out facts so the word " conservative" is enough for most folks to lend their support.

Too many folks who claim to be conservatives haven't a CLUE what that word philosophically or historically MEANS.

IF CoCC is " conservative" then so was Adolph Hitler!

I gotta hand it to you. A plus, man. A-plus.

For Casey Ann:

This blog is his "whatever he wants" blog, and his admission that it includes "jackassery" is for the so-called "fun stuff", including fenale reporter polls. A male hottest reporter poll ran last year after the female one set up by his cohort, DWF. He's a guy, do you really think he wants to pick "hot guys"?

His commentary is serious, his other stuff falls under his "jackassery" label. Lighten up.

Kingfish said...


Why don't you go read my posts on domestic violence for starters.

Then check out DWF's hottest male reporter in Jackson poll last year.

In other words, know what the hell you are talking about before you open up your mouth. You don't laugh too much, do you?

I will never forget everything that you did for the Spencer family. Actually, that is what led me to this blog.

Many people in Mississippi feel like Republican = Racist. This is no surprise to most people, and THAT is what's so unfortunate.

Many people in MS of all races agree with Republican principals. It's the "other" that keeps them from voting that way. Some people who actually NEED Democratic issues to better themselves (more money for education, healthcare, and other services) actually vote republican because of the "other" issues.

stilettoGOP said...

Ditto 4:05. That's when I became a fan for life also.

And Ms. Casey Ann, actually I was 'rolling in the aisles' over the quote.. loved it.. Even though we all know men are easily emasculated without therapy. Ha! As my favorite pair of pajamas say, "Men are easy". Truer words have never been slept in.

Anyhow. Hey kf its been a while since you've posted a babe pic. Whatcha waiting on.

stilettoGOP said...

Not talking about the Hef pics either, that was somewhat news worthy. Don't know when its gone this long without pure gratuitousness ;)

(Btw Casey, our Party is just fine, sister)

If all the Non-Conservative Value folk left the Republican Party there wouldn't be very many Republicans left.

A better way to get things done is to have all the Conservatives leave the Republican Party.

I tip my hat to you! Way to go Kingfish, excellent blog, excellent research, excellent post. You're inspiring me to get back to blogging after getting lazy.

WMartin said...

Michael, a lot of true conservatives have already left the Republican party, as evidenced by the candidates in the last national election and how they fared. As a conservative who believes in real free market capitalism and individual freedoms I don't feel that Republicans represent my values.

Mississippi is one the last hold outs that Republicans can still draw a crowd, on election day, with their platform of thinly veiled greed masquerading as free marketeering and fundamentalist religion pretending to be conservatism.

Brad White providing cover for Senator Chassianiol does nothing to raise my confidence that the Republicans will see the error of their ways on those things any time soon.

It's always been interesting to me that so many of the wealthy in this State and who are most often Republicans depend on Federal dollars for their financial it the source of many customers' income, Federal grants, Federally or tax funded or matched projects, FHA, Fannie Mac or farm subsidies .

Whether or not receiving tax dollars makes you among those who wrongly feel " entitled" is in the eye of the beholder.

I also love the irony of seeing Republicans hire illegal Mexicans. I just love the ones that say, " How am I to know for sure?" while being deliberately ignorant.

If you are a " Value" Republican, don't take Federal money in any form( including turning away customers who receive any Federal money) and don't hire illegals and do behave morally if you wish to succeed. After all, " values" not pragmatism is your mantra and your ethics can't be convenient.

I agree with the statement that Republican = Racist. The C of CC is the extreme right of the right. Of course I think that anything right of center is wrong. The C of CC and the Republican party are made for each other. I would like to see published a list of local business people in attendance at the recent event held in Jackson and others like it so that boycotts could be put in place to drive these haters out of business.

As a latecomer to your blog, I may have missed an early post explaining your "nom de blog." Is it related to Huey Long, or is it taken from "Amos and Andy"? Or is it something else entirely?

Your unmasking of these false conservatives is admirable, so I hope it's not coming from someone who still laughs at "A and A" skits. Well, it's easy to laugh, but the laughter goes sour quickly.

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.
