Jim Clyburn: It’s Racial (Again)

“BETTA CHECK HISSELF” U.S. Rep.

U.S. Rep. Jim Clyburn is playing the race card (again) when it comes to critics of embattled Richland County, S.C. election director Lillian McBride – accusing them of using “coded language” in attacking her handling of last month’s election.

According to Clyburn, it is racist to refer to a black public official “incompetent.”  In fact Clyburn has used the same “coded language” argument to attack critics of Susan Rice – who is being considered for the role of Secretary of State in U.S. President Barack Obama’s second term.


For those of you unfamiliar with the context here, McBride oversaw the “Richland County Robbery” – a rigged election last month that facilitated passage of a $1.2 billion county-wide tax hike.

For the record, this website has never alleged that McBride was incompetent – although even her allies acknowledge that she “may not present herself” as being capable and qualified.  Seriously … check out the comments from S.C. Rep. Leon Howard in this story written by reporter Corey Hutchins of The (Columbia, S.C.) Free Times.

Anyway, if Clyburn’s poverty pimpin‘, money-wastin‘, Cosby sweater-wearin‘, free speech strippin‘, Louis Farrakhan-lovin‘ black ass thinks it’s “racist” to apply the same standards of criticism to people of all colors … “bitch betta check hisself.”

It is not racist to call someone incompetent any more than it is racist to call them fat or ugly.  Nor is it racist to call them corrupt (which is the specific allegation that we are leveling against McBride).

Being black doesn’t exempt one from criticism – nor does it entitle them to praise.

If someone does something wrong they should be called out for it as quickly and as stridently as possible.  And just as this website’s founding editor has called out Clyburn for this crap before  … we will continue to call him out for it.

Every time, punk.  Every time.

Black leaders at the state and national level should be embarrassed by Clyburn’s shameless (and racist) antics.  He’s a disgrace, and a racist in his own right – not to mention one of the most fiscally liberal lawmakers in the history of the U.S. Congress.

Like we said … “bitch better check hisself.”

No surprise, it is the only card in his deck.

junior justice December 5, 2012 at 5:15 pm

Are you sure he has a deck – or a “full deck”?

He needs to get off of his hobby horse and learn to play with the adults. Anyway, this racist crap he slings around is really outdated now. We have better, more refined, ways (and polite) to express our feelings.

Jimbo, sorry if your feelings were hurt. Leave the sandbox, change your diapers, wipe your nose, and perhaps you may be accepted as an adult. Someday.

Smirks December 6, 2012 at 8:03 am

Might not be a full deck, but this is Clyburn we’re talking about, so it is definitely a stacked one.

Darth December 6, 2012 at 9:23 am

And though it is a marked deck, that dosen’t matter, they ARE all the same card.

henry December 5, 2012 at 5:10 pm

I actually agree with you on this one. Maybe if enough people call him on it, he will stop playing this ugly, divisive card…Probably, not, though, because it has worked so successfully for so many years…

junior justice December 5, 2012 at 5:20 pm

Hey, Jimbo, if you rearrange the letters in “RACE” you get “CARE”, which is a good word for you to know. Think about it.

If you rearrange the letters in “RACIST” you get “STUPID”!

So there you are. Have a nice day.

Jeff December 5, 2012 at 10:40 pm

There is no U, P, or D in “RACIST”

Big Jim: Being an incompetent, over paid, political appointee payoff, is: EQUAL OPPORTUNITY!!! Even the whites do it. So, don’t go there, your argument is stupid and racist.

Got to see his minions do just what was suggested here. That was at the Presidential Democrat Debate after party event that his honor hosted in Mrytle Beach a few years back.
Bulging envelopes were in the hands of many as they all glistened their lips for the big on.

That ALMOST makes sense, Vinnie. Congratulations.

WillieManickney December 5, 2012 at 5:24 pm

I don’t know why he, as an educated man, cannot understand the simple definition of “incompetent” – applies moreso to us Whiteys since we hold more public offices.

To paraphrase Browning: “How do I count Thee? Let’s count the ways… starting with 46 state senators and a governess…”

Johnson December 5, 2012 at 5:25 pm

I agree with you, Sic. Clyburn is an embarrassment to this state. He does not even realize he is being dragged around as the token black for Pelosi and Obama. The race card has served him well in the past and he intends to keep on using it.

junior justice December 5, 2012 at 5:32 pm

Absolutely correct. He needs to shut up and wait for his retirement. Maybe he is getting “Bidenitis” and is forgetting how good he has it. Probably moreso than 97% of his constituents. Jimbo, just keep on playing and pretending that you are the “Big Daddy” and enjoy the ride.

Mike at the Beach December 5, 2012 at 10:54 pm

Oh, he gets it. He just doesn’t care, since it serves his purposes and gets him “paid.”

It is, in fact, 100% racial – Miz Lilly is only in this position because she is black. There is no other reason that she would have been hired – the racists here are Darryl Jackson and Jim Clyburn, and any other elected official who does not demand Miz Lilly’s resignation and replacement. And “incompetent” is kind. She needs to be FIRED immediately – her office cluster fucked the entire election – which will cost the people of Richland County mabillions in higher taxes and will drive local merchants further into the red as consumers flee to Lexington and Kerhaw to shop, and as new empty busses prowl the skreets looking for riders to get assaulted and robbed.

junior justice December 5, 2012 at 5:34 pm

(ditto all of my previous comments)

Go Cocks! December 6, 2012 at 9:53 am

Bullshit – she got this position because she knew the right people. The exact same process works on the conservative and largely white side of the political spectrum. Have you ever hired anyone for your own or some other business? Can you seriously say that you did not favor people that you already knew to some degree simply because the unknowns of whether they were a psychopath or a bed-wetter were reduced?

carrie December 5, 2012 at 5:36 pm

He and Al Sharpton are two of a kind.

junior justice December 5, 2012 at 5:44 pm

At this time I extend my apologies to the commentators on this site.

It is rare for me to express myself in such harsh language, but when someone insinuates that I am “racist” (which is false) then my asshole puckers – and I don’t like it.

As a life-long Southerner, born and reared in the deep south by caring parents, and an extended family, who never expressed or taught me anything but respect for other people. This included either race or circumstances in life, and I feel that I was treated the same in return.

Jimbo, you still try to have a nice day.

little rocky from arkansas December 5, 2012 at 6:07 pm

He must be frustated. He is probably trying to suck up obama’s butthole expecting to get a cabinet position. After all, others did it so why can’t he? If he thinks being divisive in his comments helps him well let him be that way. It won’t make him any prettier, and it might get him out of the state. It almost makes me feel sorry for him – almost. Right now Alvin Greene would probably beat him in a popularity contest. Here is my vote – 1.

little rocky from arkansas December 5, 2012 at 6:09 pm

That’s my vote for Alvin, by the way.

Turtle December 5, 2012 at 6:22 pm

No question Alvin Greene is more honest than Clyburn.

What does Jimmy Crack Corn have to say about the black residents of Richland County who want McBribe gone? If Jimbo wants to see race, all he has to do is look at a map of his district. There’s no logical reason other than race to have a congressional district that looks like that.

Old Bike Dude December 5, 2012 at 9:25 pm

Yeah like he drew his district you racist asswipe.

scsince60 December 5, 2012 at 10:04 pm

No one takes Fits seriously enough to sue for his libelous statements.He’s part of a slowly dying racist breed.

Face it,asshole.You’re a joke.

Bryan December 5, 2012 at 6:40 pm

Let me tell ya, this is nothing compared to what he pulled in georgetown county a few years back. Clyburn helped Dayo and Beulah White get earmark money for an organization called five rivers, which was supposed to use federal money from HUD to help low income families get into their own homes. Of course, they never really helped anyone but their friends and themselves, and after some digging from David Wren (The un-news, myrtle beach) charges were filed by solicitor Greg Hembrees office. Now, here is where it gets really interesting; The first time they showed up in court they both claim not to have money for an attorney, so the court appointed one to represent them. THEN a year later, lo and behold they are being represented by none other than Charlie Condon( former attorney general, SC). How bout that shit! And of course, Charlie would’nt fess up to who was paying him (And you Know a former AG can’t be cheap) or how he got involved, but anyone with a half o brain could figure all that out. Yeah, Clyburn is nothing but F’n crook from way back.

Come On, Now.. December 5, 2012 at 6:55 pm

You make a great point and as usual, someone is a little too quick to pull the race card. But I think maybe the next time you write an article condemning racism and the race card, maybe it’d help your case if you leave out the part about his ‘black ass’.. Not quite sure why that was necessary and if anything, it just adds fuel to the already redundant fire that. Otherwise, I completely agree.

Judy Chop December 5, 2012 at 8:28 pm

His ass is not black? Did he bleach it. A nurse friend of mine says when Clyburn had his hemorrhoids operation the doctor had to roll him in flour to find his asshole. Now that’s black!

Come On, Now.. December 5, 2012 at 8:44 pm

Uhh huh that’s what I thought. Talk a lot of shit but never do shit. BWS they would have a blast with you. Between your camel toe and the chicken shit running down your leg, you’d be somebody’s bitch quick.
Don’t worry though. The BCSO has made over 200 visits there in the last year. Hopefully they’d get you out before anything real bad happens.

You seem awful proud that your home is such a shithole. Maybe next year the BCSO will make 400 visits, 399 of them black on black homicides, you know how you black boys love to cap a nigga.

So your successful buddy, the SC State grad, owns a fishing shack and a dive bar. I always wondered what one does with a degree from SC State… that is the ones who don’t drop out once Uncle Sam quits sending them checks to pay their tuition.

BradWarthenSucks December 6, 2012 at 9:24 am

Old Bike Dude – “you’d be somebody’s bitch quick”, are you saying that you’re buddy’s “juke joint” is a gay bar, or are you just saying that there are plenty of gay men in there looking to pick up another man?

gregorybgeddings December 6, 2012 at 6:52 am

Not to mention the appointment of his daughter Mignon Clyburn as an FCC Commissioner. Here is an extract from a 2009 article from McClatchy news service:

“Senate Commerce Committee Chairman Jay Rockefeller, a West Virginia Democrat, noted Mignon Clyburn’s more than decade-long service on the S.C. Public Service Commission in hailing her ascension to the FCC.

“As a seasoned state regulator, Ms. Clyburn brings with her a strong understanding of the telecommunications challenges rural Americans face every day,” Rockefeller said.

Read more here:

I live on acreage in Hanahan, a suburb of Charleston. All of my neighbors are hard-working African-Americans (I am the only white guy). Most live on very large heirs property lots. About 10 years ago developers purchased a huge tract of land surrounding this historic former freed slave community from West Virginia Pulp and Paper. They proceeded to flatten these several thousand acres and build thousands of wall-to-wall cheap homes, condos, and a gigantic apartment complex. In this process (in collusion with local government) they refused to extend infrastructure improvements a few hundred feet to the original residents. A few years after the development began they did provide city water.

Developers are drooling over this remaining undeveloped tract where hundreds of wild turkeys gobble their way through the underbrush and deer abound. Hey! Who needs wildlife when we can have parking lots?

I contacted Ms. Clyburn about the “rural Americans” in my neighborhood who were refused upgrades in the phone lines to allow high-speed internet access.


junior justice December 6, 2012 at 7:49 am

Interesting. This seems like an excellent time to press Jimbo on that situation. He may not want the bad publicity and you may accomplish something good.

gregorybgeddings December 6, 2012 at 8:05 am

It would not do much good as it would receive no attention. All of the media in Charleston, especially the TV stations, are in the pocket of the monied interests. I guess the point that I was trying to make is that periodically these African-American politicos step out of the box and make statements to mollify their constituencies and make them believe that they have someone out there speaking for them. In reality, the Clyburn’s are out to promote their own power and self-interest. They are not foolish enough to step on the toes of those who pull the strings.

Scoop December 6, 2012 at 7:44 am

Sic, I think the scoop of the year would be to get your hands on the “code book” Clyburn uses. If you could make it public it would help us all to be better citizens. Besides, why should Clyburn be the only one to have access to the codes? He’s a government employee and is supposed to be working for us, so shouldn’t he share the code with his constituents?

junior justice December 6, 2012 at 7:55 am

Her management of the election and subsequent failures concerning the American voters is an OUTRAGE and DISGRACE. She should be terminated immediately, I do not care if she is frigging purple.

Jimbo has always been a race baiter and most SC voters await his retirement as he disgraces the state with his BULLSHIT of Racism.
