Nearly a quarter of a century after his untimely (or was it timely?) death from a brain tumor, former Republican National Committee chairman and top White House strategist Lee Atwater has risen from the grave … at least on Twitter.

A new South Carolina political spoof account – @NoBoogieMan – popped up shortly after Easter bearing the name of Atwater, a blues guitarist-turned-race-baiting strategist to former presidents Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush.

“Im just a South Carolina Cracker, but I wonder if Barack Obama would invite me to sing some blues at the White House,” one of the first tweets from the account mused.

Another tweet referenced the protagonist from the popular Netflix original series House of Cards, noting that the character – a powerful Congressman from the Palmetto State – “could not hold my jock strap when it comes to wielding power in SC and DC.”

Another tweet boasted that “If I had been alive, Clinton nor Obama would have won two terms.”

Atwater – whose political legacy this website has flatly repudiated – is known for perfecting the “Southern Strategy,” a racially charged electoral approach which enabled the Republican party to secure a short-lived national majority.

What was the “Southern Strategy?”

Here’s how it was expressed in 1970 by Kevin Phillips, a top political strategist to then-president Richard M. Nixon …

From now on, the Republicans are never going to get more than 10 to 20 percent of the Negro vote and they don’t need any more than that … but Republicans would be shortsighted if they weakened enforcement of the Voting Rights Act. The more Negroes who register as Democrats in the South, the sooner the Negrophobe whites will quit the Democrats and become Republicans. That’s where the votes are. Without that prodding from the blacks, the whites will backslide into their old comfortable arrangement with the local Democrats.

And here’s how it was explained by Atwater himself in a 1981 interview with political scientist Alexander P. Lamis …

You start out in 1954 by saying, “Nigger, nigger, nigger.” By 1968 you can’t say “nigger” — that hurts you, backfires. So you say stuff like, uh, forced busing, states’ rights, and all that stuff, and you’re getting so abstract. Now, you’re talking about cutting taxes, and all these things you’re talking about are totally economic things and a byproduct of them is, blacks get hurt worse than whites

“We want to cut this,” is much more abstract than even the busing thing, uh, and a hell of a lot more abstract than “Nigger, nigger.”

Of course these “Republicans” didn’t cut anything … they grew government by leaps and bounds.

Anyway, it remains to be seen whether this spoof account will burn out and fade away (as most do) or evolve into a credible voice in the new media world (like the twitter account @SCLegislator).

“Race-Baiting”…That’s Left-wing Mythology (and Dumb@$$ FITS) as its most Disgusting.
I think Willie Horton was dug up by the democrats, just like Hilliary offered the birth certificate claim…but don’t let reality get in the way of your IGNORANCE…
At any rate:It’s also FITS is his laziest and most cliche, when he simply repeats the hate speech of the democrats…
Sure: you leftwing Nazis HATE Lee Atwater….Why?: He was successful.
He was ruthless, but he won. The left is like him, only they elect Failure and Ant-iAmerican Zealots….
To stomp this man’s grave is so typical FITS-like. It beats having a D@*n brain..and it gets his LEftwing worshipers back in the choir…
PS, FITS: Why not learn how to think for yourself???…Reguritating leftwing propganda confirms your STUPIDITY…and why you’ll always only be what the liberals will allow you to be…

Atwater helped Carroll Campbell win in Congress by doing a push poll asking voters if they wanted a Congressman who did not believe in Jesus Christ. His opponent, who had the lead in the polls at the time, was mayor of Greenville, and a Jew.
It was indefensible, anti-Semitic, and, in South Carolina of the day, successful. Defend that you, BigTwerp.

True and factual, but irrelevant to how one would serve this state. While true, we elect people who we think represents us best, it is sad that such criteria are held higher by some than, say, being capable of doing the job.

Democracy is as flawed as the reasoning people use when they vote. This is why SC politicians run ads talking about family values and having pictures of their family thrown up when SC has a huge propensity for electing adulterers and self-serving hacks. If you’re a terrible human being, just run on exactly what you aren’t and you have a great chance to win here.

That being said, Campbell was probably one of the best governors we’ve had, and we’ve been going downhill ever since.

Bottom line: FITS was a well-placed operative for a silver-spooned, lily-white self-called Republican Governor.

The rich-middle-class liberal, yuppie whites, like FITS and Sanford, pander to blacks…As long as they get their power, they will nod in agreement w/ leftwing idiocy about race, to keep them shut up.

I remember Sanford talking about how his kids could not keep up (did not have the rhythm) like the black kids in the church Sanford was prostituting his kids in for votes…That’s how IGNORANT FITS and Sanford are, in race relations. Blacks should never respect dis-honest, idiots like FITS and Sanford…

It’s why you can have the likes of Cornel West, Obama, Jeremiah Wright, Michelle Obama, Skip Gates and Al Sharpton in the liberal movement, and dumb@$$ whites like FITS and Sanford, are still talking about Lee Atwater….

In the short-term, In a very ugly and dishonest way, he got the job done and he was lauded and respected for his stratagem by both parties in their backrooms. In the long run his legacy has become an albatross for Party members. And, for those minorities who attempt to overlook the past and look forward and embrace planks of the party platform that align with their values, epitaphs of Uncle Tom and Oreo Cookie await. While pockets of racism can be found in the Republican Party and are routinely called out, like pockets found in the Democratic Party are more insidious, and rarely recognized for what they are. Throwing money at troubled communities to quell dissent and win votes, shaking down corporations for dollars to feed a hierarchy of self-serving blowhards who do little for their communities, lowering standards in schools to move everyone along leaving students ill-prepared for the workplace serves no one and I feel is a cynical form of racism.

Throwing money at troubled communities to quell dissent and win votes, shaking down corporations for dollars to feed a hierarchy of self-serving blowhards who do little for their communities, lowering standards in schools to move everyone along leaving students ill-prepared for the workplace serves no one and I feel is a cynical form of racism.

Facebook Unveils New Waste of Time

MENLO PARK (The Borowitz Report) — Before a rapt audience at Facebook headquarters Thursday, Facebook C.E.O. Mark Zuckerberg unveiled new software that he promised “will totally change the way you are wasting your life.”

Explaining the development of Facebook’s new phone software, Home, Mr. Zuckerberg said, “Our research showed that Facebook users still had a few hours a day when they were leading somewhat healthy and productive lives. Our new software will change all of that.”

Mr. Zuckerberg said his developers had worked for months developing Home, “which seizes control of your phone and makes it good for little other than Facebook — much like many Facebook users themselves.”

By bombarding the user with status updates on a twenty-four-hour basis, he boasted, “Home transforms Facebook from just a social network into something akin to a neurological disorder.”

As the audience applauded that pronouncement, Mr. Zuckerberg added, “At Facebook, we want to be a million voices inside your head.”

When one member of the audience worried whether Home would give Facebook even more access to private information about one’s life, Mr. Zuckerberg reassured the questioner, “After using Home for several weeks, you will have no life.”

While clearly proud of his latest product, Mr. Zuckerberg gave notice that he did not intend to rest on his laurels: “At Facebook, we will never stop striving to replace real experience with something soulless and empty.”

I grew up with Lee, and strange as it may seem to people. Lee was “early on,” a Democrat. He only changed to the GOP when he knew he could not go up in the Democratic Party. Because it was too big and too entrenched in SC for a young guy to get a leadership position. So, he chose the much smaller GOP, and off he went.

Lee didn’t care which side won. He’d sell guns to both sides. He was just a political soldier for hire. If the GOP had been big in SC in 1966, then Lee would have gone over to the Democrats. He was just looking for an opportunity to run either party. He didn’t have a political agenda. He just wanted to win, at any cost, and using every single thing available to him. And, win he did, over and over again. He created Carl Rove, and many others just like him. That win at all costs is still with us today. A sad legacy of the great and powerful Oz… Lee Atwater.

Drop the “in SC” and I have read the exact same thing for Richard Nixon.

Don’t worry FITS: Most of the Dumb@$$#$ who respect you, would never consider that I kick your @$$, intellectually, creatively and with skill and experience.

That said: I think FITS opened a can of worms that he, and his leftwing idiot followers, did not want opened…because they did not expect to get it discussed honestly, even if it is only by me.

IOW: FITS’ little fiefdom of imbeciles is safe for him to rape and plunder…The stupid stay that way if they only mingle w/ people on their level…

While I am hardly a Lee Atwater fan, I found this quote by him, late in his life, to be true.

“My illness helped me to see that what was missing in society is what was missing in me: a little heart, a lot of brotherhood. The ’80s were about acquiring — acquiring wealth, power, prestige. I know. I acquired more wealth, power, and prestige than most. But you can acquire all you want and still feel empty. What power wouldn’t I trade for a little more time with my family? What price wouldn’t I pay for an evening with friends? It took a deadly illness to put me eye to eye with that truth, but it is a truth that the country, caught up in its ruthless ambitions and moral decay, can learn on my dime. I don’t know who will lead us through the ’90s, but they must be made to speak to this spiritual vacuum at the heart of American society, this tumor of the soul.”

So he is speaking of the need for Christianity (in opposition to liberalism.) And you are agreeing…right???

I have no doubt that you will blast me in your reply, but since you asked a question about my post, I will give you the courtesy of a reply.
I do not feel that Atwater was speaking about liberals or conservatives when he said “but it is a truth that the country, caught up in its ruthless ambitions and moral decay, can learn on my dime”. I think that he meant that both sides should work together, and there shouldn’t be the gutter politics that he elevated to an art form. Atwater apologized to Turnipseed and other people who he unfairly attacked before he died. I’m glad he had a chance to do so.
I hope you have a good day Fits.

Thanks for your answer…And Have they (did they) apologize to him???…or does this ‘call for fair play’ only work one way???
That said: Conservaties are civil fair, and open-minded. There is NOTHING for me to apologize for. You must fight injustice, corruption and lies (liberalism) or you should have to answer for that.
I don’t agree w/ Atwater’s tactics (he operated like FITS does now, gutter) but it’s the left that should apologize to all of us for what they’ve done to society…

Fleet April 8, 2013 at 1:40 pm

I don’t move in those circles, so I don’t know who apologized to who, except for what was released by Atwater’s family, and the other people involved.
Actually, I agree with the the point I think Atwater was trying to make in that there is plenty of shit being throw by both sides
Once again, have a good day Fits.
PS- I did a little web search and came up with this story/quote from Mr. Atwater:
Mr. Atwater also described the change in his relationship with Ronald H. Brown, the Democratic national chairman.

“After the election, when I would run into Ron Brown, I would say hello and then pass him off to one of my aides,” he said. “I actually thought that talking to him would make me appear vulnerable.

“Since my illness, Ron has been enormously kind — he sent a baby present to Sally T.,” Mr. Atwater’s third child, who was born only weeks after he was stricken. “He writes and calls regularly — and I have learned a lesson: Politics and human relationships are separate. I may disagree with Ron Brown’s message, but I can love him as a man.”
