Bakari Sellers Is Popular …

For reasons surpassing understanding, The (Columbia, S.C.) State newspaper devoted several hundred words over the weekend in an effort to determine why S.C. Rep. Bakari Sellers’ October 2012 arrest for driving under the influence was greeted by calls for compassion – not calls for the young lawmaker’s resignation. In fact…

For reasons surpassing understanding, The (Columbia, S.C.) State newspaper devoted several hundred words over the weekend in an effort to determine why S.C. Rep. Bakari Sellers’ October 2012 arrest for driving under the influence was greeted by calls for compassion – not calls for the young lawmaker’s resignation.

In fact the paper even quoted our founding editor as referring to Sellers’ arrest – news of which broke earlier this month – as “practically a non-event.”

The State was – as is often the case – befuddled.

“Where was all of this goodwill when state Rep. Ted Vick, D-Chesterfield, was arrested for drunken driving?” the paper’s lead political reporter Adam Beam mused.

Really? Really?

Comparing Sellers’ and Vick’s DUI arrests is like comparing a jaywalker to John Wayne Gacy (ok … that’s exaggerating a bit). But just for the sake of comparing, let’s look at the tale of the tape, shall we?

First of all Sellers is a single, 28-year-old who is currently not seeking higher office. His arrest was by-the-book, ho-hum and involved nothing in the way of exacerbating circumstances. On the other hand Vick is a married 40-year-old who was seeking a seat in the United States Congress when he was busted last May (in fact he was the democratic frontrunner for the state’s seventh congressional district at the time).

But that’s just the beginning of the differences. Vick wasn’t just drunk (allegedly) … he was also speeding (driving recklessly some might say), packing heat and transporting a woman who wasn’t his wife to her domicile when he was pulled over.

In fact prior to referring to Sellers’ arrest as “practically a non-event,” we had this to say about Vick’s bust …

Vick pulled off the ‘Grand Slam’ of traffic busts when we was caught speeding, driving under the influence and carrying an unauthorized firearm – all while traveling with a college coed (Vick is not only married, he’s one of those ‘family values‘ democrats).

Yeah, The State neglected to provide that context …

So, to what does The State attribute the muted reaction to Sellers’ DUI arrest?

“Sellers is popular at the State House,” Beam concludes. “And for good reason. He is smart, funny and level-headed. He is good at his job.”

Hmmmmm …

Maybe all of those things are true (and we’d agree most of them are), but Sellers’ popularity has absolutely nothing to do with this discrepancy. Ted Vick’s DUI blew up because of multiple exacerbating factors (gun, girl, congressional bid, hypocrisy) – none of which were present in Sellers’ arrest.

The fact The State didn’t list any of these factors is surprising … especially since the paper seems inclined to cut Sellers some slack over the incident.

Kind of hate to say it, but you are basically right on this, BigT… the list of left/right and black/white double standards grows by the day. This Sellers case is just in line with that trend…. oh, and BigT, you left out the latest of the disgusting double standards, the sickening adoration of Dorner.

If Dorner were a white dude in the woods shooting ATF agents, the right wing would have slobbered over him just as badly and would have howled when he was executed without a trial in that cabin.

Of course, if you can’t see what I was saying earlier about modern conservatives being whiny like 80s liberals, there is no chance in Hades you can grasp that distinction either.

Your reference is stupid and obscure and is basically the amateurish comment of a political novice. Further – and you can take this to the bank – I’m not aware of any right wingers, or “wing nuts” as you call them, who’ve cheered on legitimate murderers. Did the right cheer for the actions of McVeigh? Nah! And let’s be clear, this isn’t Ruby Ridge where the ATF were the well documented killers. However, you guys? OJ, Dorner, the killers in numerous race riots, etc, etc, etc… Yeah, you’re nation’s new government sponsored sick and hateful.

bottom line here. If you didn’t spend so much time with your head up your ass and believing every rant on every conservative blog on the net, you’d realize that this is whats going on here. Dems like him and Repubs like him. He’s a politician’s politician. Besides, we live in a state that is absolutely DOMINATED by the right so if Sellers is getting a pass you can bet your last dollar its republicans turning a blind eye. But you’re too stupid to see that, you see the big bad “Obama machine” at work here, and it’s just another example of the liberal media.. blah, blah, blah, fucking blah… You need grow the fuck up!

Bakari is popular because he is a team player. He is not just in the game to see what a black man can do to take from whitey – unlike Jim Clyburn, Darrel Jackson, Vince Ford, Lillian McBride, EW Cromatie, Steve Benjamin and too many others. Gilda Cobb falls into this Bakari catagory.

The DUI arrest having been made public, with car-cam video from the police, would have derailed his re-election last November. Scandalous cover-up to deny the voters this information a month before the election. He also has a rap sheet for moving violations.

“a Freedom of Information Act request on Sellers’ 10-year driving record and found 14 traffic violations. He did not show up to court 11 times and did not pay the ticket, which led to a string of driver’s license suspensions from North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia.”

wistv.com/story/21017969/rep-bakari-sellers-dui-charge-october He is being groomed the the Democrats for a top slot in their corrupt party. His Wikipedia page has him as a first vice chairman of the South Caroline Democrat Party. Currently, he is not listed as such on the SCDP websiteAccording to the Statehouse web page on him

The DUI arrest having been made public, with car-cam video from the police, would have derailed his re-election last November. Scandalous cover-up to deny the voters this information a month before the election. He also has a rap sheet for moving violations.

“a Freedom of Information Act request on Sellers’ 10-year driving record and found 14 traffic violations. He did not show up to court 11 times and did not pay the ticket, which led to a string of driver’s license suspensions from North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia.”

wistv.com/story/21017969/rep-bakari-sellers-dui-charge-october He is being groomed the the Democrats for a top slot in their corrupt party. His Wikipedia page has him as a first vice chairman of the South Caroline Democrat Party. Currently, he is not listed as such on the SCDP websiteAccording to the Statehouse web page on him

Personal Information

We see he is connected to Clyburn and Obama. There is more.

Bakari Sellers refused to tell citizens where he stands on any of the issues addressed in the 2012 Political Courage Test, despite repeated requests from Vote Smart, national media, and prominent political leaders. votesmart.org/candidate/56925/bakari-sellers?categoryId=63#.USKIdaWsiSo

Then there is his donors and voting record. Special?

Not sure I buy the argument that Vick’s case was worse than Sellers’. Vick got pulled, initially, for speeding. Who doesn’t.speed? Sellers got pulled for driving erratically and almost hitting a truck. Sounds like Sellers was actually a danger on the road.
