SC Senator To Jews: “Bless Your Hearts”

“FOOT-IN-MOUTH” STATE LAWMAKER STRIKES AGAIN …

|| By FITSNEWS || There he goes again …

Two weeks after causing a national scandal by referring to women as “lesser cuts of meat,” S.C. Senator Thomas Corbin is now checking Jews off of his “to offend” list.

Earlier, this website reported on Corbin’s statement that “more Jesus” was needed to stem the tide of men killing women in the Palmetto State.  We didn’t disagree with him … although we added an Old Testament caveat (specifically a recommendation to impose some “eye for an eye” justice on this confessed killer).

Corbin apparently isn’t down with the Old Testament, though …

Shortly after making his “more Jesus” comment on the floor of the S.C. Senate this week, the foot-in-mouth lawmaker was challenged by fellow S.C. Senator Joel Lourie – who is Jewish.  During his remarks, Lourie made reference to attending synagogue.

“You go to a synagogue?” Corbin interrupted.

“Nothing gets by you, Senator from Greenville,” Lourie responded.

Corbin’s next comment?

“Bless your heart.”

Wait … what?

Obviously, “bless your heart” isn’t Corbin’s way of wishing divine care and protection for Lourie.  As Urban Dictionary notes, the expression is “a term used by the people of the southern United States … to express to someone that they are an idiot without saying such harsh words.”

Yeah …

It’s also defined as  “a phrase used by Southern women to excuse themselves for speaking ill of someone else” as well as “an expression of sympathy or pity.”

Corbin’s remarks baffled his colleagues … who continue to marvel at the words that come out of his mouth.

(And the food that goes into his mouth).

“It’s like Archie Bunker stepped into a time-traveling DeLorean and wound up here,” one of Corbin’s colleagues in the S.C. Senate told FITS, referring to the politically incorrect star of the 1970s sitcom All in the Family, portrayed by the late Carroll O’Connor.

What will Corbin say next?

Stay tuned …

He has now offended women and Jews, thus reassuring his re-election to the SC Senate. If he’s going for the “Palmetto State Trifecta”, you better put the Black Caucus on notice.

It’s so bad out. Just the other day I drove past a car dealership and they were – oh my God it was horrible – they were selling cars. And this lady I know who’s a Realtor – last month – she had four closings. Horrible. And the other night I went to Longhorn Steakhouse, and I had to wait. I had to wait, can you believe it? This country is so screwed up. My wife, she keeps getting calls from head hunters with job offers, and just yesterday I paid a little over $2 for a gallon of gas. And then I noticed lately the price of milk is down below $4. Obama has really screwed this whole country up. Man – it’s so bad. I wish it was 2008 again.

In south Florida for a few days on business and pleasure.Many Jewish friends here that are not voting Democrat in 2016.In fact the community we stay in is almost 100% Jewish.

On to the beach at Lake Worth. 80 degrees/water temp 70.

I will report in later on my thoughts about Obama’s latest lawless moves to destroy the country.

Same could be said for you. You love Him when it comes to advocating for certain social issues (on which I agree with you), but when it comes to public conduct and issues of character/personal holiness, you bash Him and disavow Him worse than you do liberals. You remember when I called you out for your hypocrisy on this a few weeks ago. All of a sudden you didn’t love Jesus very much. Instead, you turned yourself over to tired liberal clichés about me being “judgmental” and acting like “deacon standing at the front of a Baptist church”. You hate Him and His Word so much that you couldn’t wait to spew vitriol at one of His followers. You love to come on here and talk about how you “expose” people and how their words “show who they really are”. Well, who are you? Have your words not exposed you to be the hypocrite that you are?
I’m sure you’ll have another one of your hate-filled diatribes in response to this. That’s what you do. You act like it makes you hard-core or somehow shows that you aren’t soft. You are incapable of hearing reproof or rebuke. Read Proverbs to see what type of person that describes.

Replying to fake Grand Tango is like feeding a homeless kitten. The more you feed the kitten, the more it keeps coming back for more sustenance and warmth; the more it feels welcome to make itself welcome in your home. You don’t feed the trolls. Don’t reason with the trolls. Don’t encourage the trolls. Fake GrandTango, I still don’t know if he’s a troll, a mentally retarded person, or just a Bob Jones student with penchant for angst, but who still refuses to spell out curse words because he’s afraid to get caught.

Sure, if you say so. (Great response as usual, BTW) But we would never know for sure by you, since all you do is make presumptuous assertions without showing how you came to your conclusions. With schizophrenic = to holding contradictory beliefs and attitudes, I would say you should point out what that would be. I pointed out yours and instead of responding, you throw the accusation baselessly right back at me. That’s pretty rich (albeit pretty typical for you). I guess you also still believe that Germone Hopper is a better football player than Pharoh Cooper since I owned you on that, as well. Why don’t you rethink your spastic retort and, instead of just throwing whatever mud you can up on the wall, try to formulate a concise and reasoned response. That is assuming your philosophy of life is more than just circumvention and obfuscation. If it is that, just say so. Quit pretending like you care about the real issues or care about what the truth is. It’s abundantly clear that you don’t, particularly when it pertains to eternal issues and the gospel.

Surprised he didn’t call him the K-word, rip off his shirt to reveal a giant swastika tattoo wrapped around a Confederate Flag, and try to strangle him. Some southerners are just so closed-minded. But hey, with so many backwards people living here, and so many closet bigots, it’s actually not that far off from reality.

The Urban Dictionary is hardly the last word on Southern Parlance. In some circles of Southern society, sure, it doesn’t really mean “Bless your heart.” In others, it absolutely does. Many of the older women in my own family have never known it to be used in the passive-aggressively catty way. Like everything in Southern culture, too, it may vary considerably from one region to another — even from one area of any given state to another. Racial and class factors come into play here, as well.

That guy is clearly a hick and a dick, though. And I do very much doubt he has love in his heart for the Jews. Not like those tuned-in SC pols like Rep. Alan Clemons, who loves the Jews who think the way he does, and buddies up with the ones who hate all the Jews who are not in political and ideological lockstep with them. Most of these “conservative” type “Christians” (theocrats, all) who make so much of their love for the Jews believe that we will be allied with them in the “Final Conflict.” But if those Jews don’t “accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior”, their asses are gonna go right straight to hell anyway.

Like I always say, with friends like those, who needs enemas?

Oy Vey, y’all!

I hardly ever defend Corbin, who I honestly believe is unfit to hold public office. But in his defense, the “Bless your heart” remark was because he just realized he’d told Lourie moments earlier that the world needed more Jesus. You can see the entire exchange here.
