Lindsey Graham Says Blacks Can Go Anywhere in South Carolina if Conservative

“Graham made the comment in a televised ‘conversation’ with his political rival, former South Carolina Democratic party chair Jaime Harrison, the first African American to serve in the role.

He made the remark in the context of political careers, and said Harrison would lose because he is a Democrat, not because he is Black.

‘Do I believe our cops are systemically racist? No. Do I believe South Carolina is a racist state? No. Let me tell you why. To young people out there, young people of color, young immigrants, this is a great state, but one thing I can say without any doubt, you can be an African American and go to the Senate but you just have to share our values.’

He went on to say: ‘If you’re a young, African American or an immigrant, you can go anywhere in this state, you just need to be conservative, not liberal”.

The Guardian

South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham believes that if you’re a young African America you can go far in South Carolina and in Trump’s America as long as you are a conservative.

Graham wears rose-colored glasses in which systemic racism and police brutality don’t exist and blacks and other minorities can go far as long as they subscribe to conservative dogma that dehumanizes immigrants, Muslims, blacks, gays and women.

In other words, as long as they are Uncle Toms like the other senator from his state, Tim Scott, they are welcome under the GOP big tent. Just slap on an ingratiating smile like Scott, and you will go far young black man.

But if you are a black liberal who spouts nonsense like criminal justice reform, racial equality, reparations, Medicare for all …, you will be treated like a second-class citizen.

The voters of South Carolina must reject Graham’s plantation mentality, it has no place it a religiously and ethnically diverse democracy.

Graham is a self-loathing gay man who knows his fellow Republicans would turn against him if he sashayed out of the closet. He denies his sexual orientation, and he expects African Americans to likewise deny the progressive agenda that accepts them as equal members of our democracy. Sorry Lady G, not everyone is a sniveling coward like you.

Democratic Debate: Chaos Featuring Naked Cowboy, Homeboner, Amy Klobuchar’s ‘Uncle Dick’ and Elizabeth Warren Going Psycho on Mike Bloomberg

Donald Trump is an existential threat to civility, the rule of law and democracy itself. Last night I watched the Democratic debate in Charleston, South Carolina; the Democratic hopefuls faced off and it was a Battle Royale from the opening bell.  

The debate was moderated by CNS’s Gayle King, Margaret Brennan, Major Garrett and Bill Whitaker, and they were utterly ineffectual in preventing crosstalk and stopping the candidates from speaking out of turn.

The seven candidates on stage: frontrunner socialist Bernie Sanders, crazy Joe Biden, Mayor Pete, billionaire Mike Bloomberg, Native American activist Elizabeth Warren, billionaire impeachment king Tom Steyer and Amy (I eat salad with a comb) Klobuchar engaged in an epic food fight.

The debate featured gaffe-prone Joe Biden exclaiming that 150 million people had been killed in shootings since Sanders voted more than a decade ago to shield gun manufacturers from liability, and uttering the word “homeboner” for no discernable reason.

Amy Klobuchar referenced her Uncle Dick and explained that she weighs gun controls by asking “Do they hurt my Uncle Dick in the deer stand?” If I had a niece as weird as Klobuchar, I would spend all of my time in a deer stand just to get away from her, even though I’m not a hunter and I would never kill a deer.

Billionaire Bloomberg let is slip that he “bought off” Congressional reps with his millions in pocket change, and he referenced the “Naked Cowboy” for good measure.

Warren once again ripped Bloomberg a new a-hole, she really has a vendetta against him.

The debate was a chaotic cacophony that made me want to pierce my eardrums, but having said that I’d rather have any of the seven Democratic hopefuls as president instead of the short-fingered vulgarian Trump. Even if the Naked Cowboy was the Secretary of Defense and Amy’s Uncle Dick was the Chief of Staff. You can bet your homeboner on that!
