SCGOP Chairman: “My Opponents Are Terrorists”

S.C. “Republican” Party chairman Chad Connelly will coast to reelection this spring when the cranially challenged hypocrites who comprise the membership of his party gather for their annual convention.

Which is why it amazes us that he is engaging his opposition … 

Oh well. The stupidity evidenced by this establishment hack is good news for our website, which gets to report on a pending lawsuit against the SCGOP chairman (and the party itself) in the wake of an ill-advised email blast implying his political opponents were terrorists.

“As we close in on the end of our conventions and in light of the world in which we live where terrorists try their best to blend in with our culture, we cannot take anything for granted and cannot allow ourselves to associate with people who rant endlessly hateful stuff,” Connelly wrote.

Connelly then specifically identified a party activist by the name of Brian Frank, who is said to be in league with Samuel Harms – Connelly’s opponent in the SCGOP chairman’s race.

“I want to warn those of you in upstate meetings where I have seen this person that you do not need to let him near your meetings,” Connelly continued. “On a related note, Brian Frank has threatened me and my family in the past and he is the primary Facebook, twitter, email and text person supporting Sam Harms.”

Whoa …

Frank – who is raising money to sue Connelly for slander as a result of the email – is definitely no saint. He’s posted some vile anti-Semitic nonsense to his website in the past (he claims it was for “informational” purposes) and based on the barrage of emails, tweets and other communication we’ve received from him pressuring us to write on this topic, it seems clear that (like most South Carolina “Republicans”) he’s more than a few bricks short of a full load.

But does that make him a terrorist? Or deserving of being compared to terrorists?

According to Connelly (who is thick as thieves with fear-mongering U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham), the answer appears to be “yes.”

Again, none of this is going to remotely impact Connelly’s reelection bid – but it is good copy, as well as the latest example of a South Carolina “Republican” demonstrating a total lack of understanding of the Art of War.

Lee – Brian Frank’s recent Facebook post is even better: “I speak from personal knowledge and experience when i say that Jews are greedy, elitist, arrogant, hateful, usurious,racist, litigious, profane, dishonest, immoral, godless troublemakers who destroy everything in their path. I’m not saying that all Jews are all of those things, but the vast majority are most of those things, if not all. Even though they don’t believe in God, they somehow believe they are God’s “chosen people”, and that the rest of humanity is only put here to serve them.”

All things must come around eventually. Or perhaps they just linger out-of-sight. That crazed howling regarding Jews could have come straight from the pages of 1000 pamphlets and articles, or from speeches, by the farther reaches of staid “respectable” Republicanism in the upper midwest and northeast in the late 1930s and earliest 1940s. (Pearl Harbor and ensuing events eventually shut them up.)

We need to ask Chad Connelly these quetions:

1. The supreme court said that you failed to follow state law with
candidate filing and this resulted in over 100 republicans being removed
from the ballot , are you going to resign?

2. Ed Harris got
more votes than his primary opponent why did you list Ed Harris as
losing election? follow up Who paid you off?

3. Do you take responsibility for all the improper filings for the
candidates getting removed from the ballot? If so, when will you resign?

4. Why are you opposed to the lawsuit to prevent democrats voting in our primaries?

5. South Carolina has historically run and paid for its own
presidential preference primaries in January. Why did you ask the
Government to run and pay for the primary? Why do you need to rely on
the govt to do something that we can do ourselves?

6. The
republican party has always conducted candidate filings without any
problems until you became chairman, why do you support the legislation
that would put the govt in charge of candidate filing?

7. Why did the SC GOP borrow $340,000 and how do you intend on paying it back?

bob sacamanto April 24, 2013 at 1:58 pm

1) The court threw candidates off because THEY didn’t comply with 2 different laws that were conflicting with each other

2) The state committee, not Chad, voted against Ed Harris – get your facts straight

3) See number 1

4) He’s not opposed to a lawsuit…file away. He – and the PARTY – supports a change in the law to have people register by party – so we CAN close our primaries.

5) The state election commission ran the 2008 Republican AND Democrat primaries and the 2012 Republican because, thanks to federal laws, it’s impossible to comply without getting our asses sued.

6) He supports keeping the party in charge of filing. Again, get your facts straight dude.

7) See legal bills for #1… paying for suits that were filed by Republicans by the way
