“Gremlins” In South Carolina’s Sixth District




By FITSNEWS || U.S. Rep. Jim Clyburn will represent South Carolina’s sixth congressional district until he dies, retires or is thrown in jail for corruption.  How come?  His dirt poor district was specifically gerrymandered … err, drawn … to ensure that a black Democrat always wins.

It’s called “majority minority” representation … a process by which district lines are drawn in such a way as to incorporate racial boundaries, not regional ones.

Anyway … thanks to this creative mapmaking, Clyburn has been effectively unopposed since winning this seat in 1993.  No credible candidate will run against him because there is zero chance of beating him.

How come? Eh …

The only hope is that one day one of his many misdeeds will catch up with him.

This year, Clyburn is being “challenged” by Anthony Culler – who is best known for his less-than-creative word plays.

Well Culler was known for his less-than-creative word plays.  Now he’s known for “Gremlins” – specifically a remark on his Facebook page in which he compared the “pestilence” of gay marriage to the 1984 horror movie of that name.

“Same-sex couples that seek to destroy our way of life and the institution of marriage are NOT cute and cuddly but rather (for those of you that are old enough to remember the movie), Gremlins that will only destroy our way of life,” Culler wrote.

Ummm …



For those of you who missed it the movie, Gremlins were adorable, fluffy pets – ostensibly of Chinese origin.  They came with three simple rules: Don’t expose them to sunlight (or they die), don’t get them wet (or they multiply) and don’t feed them after midnight (or they cocoon and turn into reptilian monsters).

Culler is clearly referring to the reptilian Gremlins in his post …

“These people are bullies and now that they are winning their true and hateful nature is much easier to see and hear,” Culler added.  “Do not condone same-sex ‘marriage’ or their self-destructive (they also have a strong tendency for substance abuse), alternate lifestyle.  Do not attend the ‘over the top’ and ‘anything goes’ ceremonies or parties that these people revel in.  Look away from this scourge on society and condemn it.  Starve it out and actively stand against this movement and those pushing it.  Seek the dismissal of all those in the judiciary and legislature that support and seek to legalize same-sex ‘marriage.'”

He then urged his supporters to “stand against this and we will reverse it and drive it back into the darkness.”

Wow …

Daniel Encarnacion – a limited government supporter – was enraged by Culler’s comments.  In fact he called on Culler to drop out of the race, while announcing the formation of a write-in campaign in the district.

“I cannot sit idly by, and allow Mr. Culler to describe gay men, and women as gremlins,” Encarnacion said in kicking off his campaign.  “This is the definition of ignorance, and is absolutely reprehensible.  I hope each, and every Republican within the sixth Congressional District stands with me in saying, Mr. Culler, you do not represent us.”

Encarnacion added that Culler’s campaign was nothing but “a bully pulpit for his fantasy world.”

Indeed … but South Carolina should expect another round of very real (and very embarrassing) national headlines nonetheless.  Especially seeing as the S.C. Republican Party has yet to publicly repudiate Culler’s comments – which would be kinda hard seeing as “traditional marriage” is a central plank in the party’s platform.
