PALMETTO STATE “REPRESENTS” RACISM … AGAIN
|| By FITSNEWS || S.C. governor Nikki Haley did the classy thing and welcomed U.S. president Barack Obama to the Palmetto State last week … his first visit to South Carolina since becoming president (actually his first visit since winning the state’s primary seven years ago).
She even wore her hooker boots … you know, in case some additional “infrastructure funding” was needed.
What took him so long? Well, according to U.S. Rep. Jim Clyburn – Obama’s people were hesitant about him coming to South Carolina due to the state’s climate of racism. Specifically, Clyburn singled out a 2009 comment by former “Republican” party activist Rusty DePass – who compared first lady Michelle Obama to an escaped gorilla at a local zoo (news of which broke exclusively on FITS).
“Those comments made his staff nervous,” Clyburn told The (Columbia, S.C.) State newspaper.
Well, judging by comments posted to Haley’s Facebook page (in the aftermath of her posting a grainy picture of her shaking Obama’s hand) it will be a long time before there’s another presidential visit.
As captured by the liberal website If You Only News, Haley’s picture was accompanied by “horrid, ugly, juvenile, and even openly racist comments” which “have yet to cease” and which Haley “has yet to have … removed.”
Here are some redacted screen caps the outlet published …

Yeah … wow.
FITS has reviewed (and preserved) the entire comment strand and we gotta say … it’s beyond embarrassing for South Carolina. And not just the overt racism or the menacing remarks offered by “haters” on both sides of the divide – but the underlying ignorance of comments made in support of Haley and Obama, too.
Of course that’s hardly surprising given the chronic ineffectiveness of the “government-run” education Obama and Haley have been perpetuating …
We’re not about to cast stones regarding things that get written in online comment sections (see below). Each of these commenters obviously has the right to speak their mind, and to her credit Haley hasn’t removed any of the comments critical of her, either. But yeah … the entire exchange is an extraordinarily sad commentary on the current status of the public discourse.
Not to mention another national black eye for the Palmetto State …
Full disclosure: This website has assailed both Obama and Haley (examples HERE and HERE). We view both as statist, crony capitalists who support the perpetual growth of government at all levels – although we would argue Obama’s assault on our wallets and our liberties is far more egregious than anything Haley has done.
The fact that the Governor has a facebook page that allows commenting is pure folly. Nothing good can come of it.
It just shows how maniacal, insincere, petty, racist, and stupid the ‘Christian’ Right is, especially in states like SC. Social media and Fox News feeds on this and the Tea Party and conservatives gobble up every piece of it to maintain power.
I have no doubts you are and Honest Liberal Democrat!
…and every time liberals do something similar it shows just how maniacal, insincere, petty, racist and stupid the ‘compassionate’ left is, especially in states like California. Social media and MSNBC feeds on this and Ooccupy wall street and liberals gobble up every piece of it to maintain power.
See how that works? I can repeat a bunch of generic canards too, the same way you can and fits just as much (if not more so) as yours do.
Yeah, I am sure all of those facebook posts came from those crazy liberals. Such a nutty bunch.
I didn’t say that they did. It’s still undeniable that they do similar hateful things. They also have been caught infiltrating Tea party rallies pretending to be part of the crowd, only to spew racial slurs when cameras or reporters are around them.
I want to P in your face *smiles*
Typical Republicans, aka WHITE TRASH.
“races are natural (evolved or created), racism is natural. Governmentally coerced integration is insanity.”
Chimpanzees flinging their own shit at each other is also perfectly natural, but we don’t exactly look up to that kind of behavior either.
Although no one has codified chimps throwing their shit at each other into illegality either…
I am pretty sure we have laws against people throwing their shit at other people, though.
Which is still yet different than a racist calling blacks “niggers”.
Different act, same primitive brain required to be ok with it.
Which is also the same brain that it takes to make said act illegal.
I’m not “ok” with a lot of things, like calling retards “retard” to their face, yet I don’t think it’s in the best interest of society to make doing so illegal.
Laws only apply yo honest people!
Saying White Trash is the exact same thing as saying Nigger.
Why does S.C. have so much ignorant white trash while New Jersey has so much toxic waste?
Because New Jersey got first choice.
They figured out how to use the toxic waste to tan their skin, and that is how Jersey Shore was made.
Why does New Jersey have so many guidos and South Carolina have so many niggers? South Carolina got first choice.
How can you tell if a White Trash Goober has money? He has TWO cars jacked up on blocks in his front yard…..
Cars or pickups?
No, it isn’t.
Yes it is. Nigger = Black Trash. Black Trash is just as bad as White Trash.
Plenty of upper class, (PhD) educated black people have been called nigger since the beginning of this country, and will continue to be called nigger today. I don’t expect you to understand if based on this simplistic definition. I suggest Google if you want to learn more, which you won’t want to.
I am confident that everyone who posted the hateful comments works in a minimum wage job.
Typical liberal. You claim to care about the working poor…but you jump on the chance to attack them.
Kinda of a Hateful @$$hole, are you not???
Just look at the spelling. Yikes.
Has anyone checked to see if the people posting trash were all from South Carolina? A lot of trash is posted on this site from people across the country, for example, but I don’t think it reflects on SC … or Fits News for not removing it all.
I can tell you first hand that there’s far more racism in Ohio than there is in SC. People latch on to stereotypes or cling to the structure of society 150 years ago in a region and assume it’s the same today.
It’s a convenient/easy/non-thinking way to deal with things that might require some actual thought.
Having spent the better part of 5 years in Ohio, I can attest to the veracity of that comment. At that time (late 20th and very earl 21st Century) the racism was far more overt there. There was still sort of a genteel way of not using the N word, generally, and everyone getting along. Not, it’s all reverted to type. But I haven’t been back to Ohio. Probably still worse. Seriously.
I still can’t figure out why he would waste his time visiting SC.
SC has one of the highest African-American populations of any state in the Union. And we have our share of illegal aliens….Dumb@$$. Those are the only Americans Obama cares about, it seems.
Good. Now Whites know what it feels like to have a politician who cares only about other races.
Ever hear of President Lincoln…???..is that who you are talking about?
You represent yourself as an ignorant Dumb@$$. …saturated in myths fed to you by your Liberal puppet-masters…
Try to stay on point, moron. Your idiot ramblings are proving especially annoying today.
He can’t – he makes no point.
He can’t make a point because he’s as dull as dishwater.
Accept that today – Lincoln would run as a Democrat. Enough said – #)$%*#!!!
150 years after the War’s end, and you’re Still having trouble admitting the Democrat Party is the party of Slaveowners, and race hate….LMAO..
You used to HATE Black people…now you Hate White people…it’s not difficult to figure out…Hahahaha…
Stop attempting to spread that ridiculous falsehood. Southern Democrats showed their true racism by turning Republican in 1965 and thereafter, infuriated that Johnson signed civil rights legislation. Democrats of old are today’s Republicans. Today’s Democrats represent Black people and members of other racial minorities, as well as a large part of White America. Republicans represent wealthy White Americans and poor Whites who are too ignorant to understand they are consistently voting against their own interests.
LMAO…When you all don’t like the facts, you lie…and invent a mythology, to help yourselves accept what you are…
George Wallace turned Republican? …I’m almost CERTAIN I read where Wallace was NOT a Republican…and WAS a Democrat…
I’ll check though…
Upon signing the civil rights legislation, Johnson, a Democrat, said that he was likely alienating the South for generations. But it was the right thing to do. Many Southern Democrats felt betrayed and turned Republican, where they have remained.
Never fails…you liberals run from what you are, when called on it…
Fritz Hollings put the Confederate Flag on the SC Statehouse. Did he turn parties??…and Was George Wallace a D, or an R????…and quit LYING about it…
Also: You’re basing your claim to non-racism on civil rights legislation?….You PROVE my point that Democrats went from hating Blacks to hating Whites…
So much of that “civil rights” legislation is VERY Racist in favor of Blacks…and has caused SEVERE Damage to our culture…
You just outed yourself as just a big a F*#king hateful Bigot, as many of your Democrat brethren are…Dumb@$$…
Go learn some history…idiot…
You are a very confused individual.
Having trouble facing who and what you are, are you not?….that’s common among you.
Exactly the case. Big T among them.
You are correct. He ran for Prez 4 times, three as a Dem, once as an Ind. But answer me this – if it’s the GOP that’s so good for minorities, why is it only GOP legislatures and governors who try to surpress the black vote? Can you enlighten me?
Very RACIST comment by you…
Republicans try to suppress CHEATING, Dumb@$$…you are attacking Black people as the only Cheaters????…
You are a very typical Democrat….
50 years after the beginning of the flipping of positions of the two parties in the south, mainly based on total exploitation of southern bigotry by the GOP, and you still want to play the Lincoln card.
Hmmm…don’t you SWEAR you’re a Republican Boz???…
So you’re admitting you’re a RACIST too….LMAO….
Nah, I think he’ run as a Dixiecrat, under Clayton Bigsby’s platform.
Who didn’t see this coming?
Obama being a disliked F*#k-up???…You didn’t see it coming, even though I warned you, over and over…LMAO…
Which one of those comments were yours? The one about the watermelon?
I LOVE watermelon. You got some, Dumb@$$…???
watermelons >>> you can eat ’em, drink ’em, and even wash your face in ’em…..
Yeah, I got some. I’ll bring it over with the fried chicken you ordered.
Will: I’m not going to say that you don’t provide a needed public service by exposing corruption and incompetence in government that the main stream media won’t touch. You do. But you don’t do it for the reasons you espouse. You do it for the glorification of your own ego and to generate hits (ie. cash) for your website. Your real motivation is no different than the main stream media…money. Zero ethics or thought of the big picture which is always more complicated than the headlines this story will create. I’m not sure this would even be story without your promotion. It certainly will now though. Thanks for using your considerable talents to help spread hate instead of love, for helping promote the stereotype of the backwards South Carolina racist, republican, redneck, and for selling out your community to throw red meat to the masses. Some stories should be ignored instead of given credence and this was one of them.
I’d say it’s only a story for the handful who come here. And many of us who do read this site, like me, find FITS far more repulsive than the people he constantly attacks.
Voting numbers demonstrate that FITS is far more disliked than his political and personal enemies.
Let’s see how long it takes for her to remove them now that Wil has a story on it. I say be 1:30 p.m.
What kind of accolades did the voting public of SC heap on your blog? Did they flock to you as their learned political scholar and socio-poltical savior, Mr. T. Lawrence?
They did not. They ignored you in overwhelming droves.
I had pretty good traffic, and could have bumped it up quite a bit w/ more effort…
Thanks, Asshole…now I just spit beer….
You sure it was not semen…LMAO…..
Thanks for admitting you are a lazy taker. That is the first step. Good boy. But you are not giving yourself enough credit.You did put forth effort. You enhanced the look, had a FB page, but yet the writing was still that of babbling idiot off his meds. So your bump up failed. If you had any brains and balls, you would have opened up a comments section. That is your bread and butter and weren’t perceptive enough to allow back and forth. People would have lined up to tell you how stupid your posts were. But alas, you effed up again. But hey, things are looking up for you: Carson in 2016 right? HAHAHAHAHA!
Haley supporters left the hateful comments and Haley or whoever manages her facebook failed to remove them. No one is promoting the negative stereotypes of South Carolina except the governor of this state and the people who support her.
News flash…there are ignorant people in this world. But Will Folks is not one of them. He knows exactly what he is doing.
There have been many other sites to report on racists and their racist bull. Racists should be called out. OU and SAE should be ashamed of the racists among them and South Carolinians should be ashamed of the racists among us. Stories like this show us we have a long way to go to get rid of racism and instead of condemning Will for reporting it you should condemn those who gave Will something to report.
I condemn all ignorance. Racism, reverse racism, etc. Anything that promotes or fans the flames of negativity and divisiveness among men. Many South Carolinian’s are ashamed of the racist among us…all of them…no mater what color they come in. My condemnation of Will has to do with his motivation. I don’t believe it is to help spread goodwill among men. There is plenty to report that isn’t designed push people’s buttons.
Lost me at reverse racism. It’s like in person voting fraud. Non-existent.
“the stereotype of the backwards South Carolina racist, republican, redneck”
It’s not a stereotype. It’s reality.
I rest my case, your honor.
All stereotypes have a basis in reality. If they didn’t they wouldn’t be a stereotype. But that doesn’t mean everyone in South Carolina fits the stereotype. Do you think the national media will make that distinction? Is that fair to all of the people in South Carolina?
I could not have said it better if I tried all day!
That’s total crap. This stuff was out there widely in the national media before Will picked up on it.
“Out there in the national media widely”? That’s debatable. But I will concede that I’m probably giving the influence of Fitsnews more credit than is due.
The South will rise again!!!! – haw!!!!
It’s a great day in South Carolina.
Why is it Liberals HATE Free speech, as much as they hate all other freedoms???
What I read just criticizes Obama for being the total F*#k up that he is…
You don’t like seeing yourselves defined for WHO, and WHAT, you really are?
Which one was yours. 1) Obama can go back to Kenya when he leaves our great state. 2) Welcome, now go home to Kenya 3) Your a dumb negro. 4) All of the above.
She’s just appealing to her base – getting ready for her run at Lindsey’s seat
This probably won’t be helpful for I-73 or other interstate projects in SC. Oopps – our bad!!!!
Where’s the story on the open letter from the 47 Senators to Iran and Iran’s take on it? Just what I thought.
I’m SO glad you mentioned that. The US Senate, more or less, slapped the S#!t out of Obama…like the majority of Americans want them to…
LMAO…they made Obama look like the incompetent Dumb@$$, he is…
Or they made themselves open to criminal charges and prison under the Logan Act and at the same time displayed their basic disrespect of the institution they are members of.
What a F*#king Kookjob…LMAO….
An stupid F*#king liberal now claiming the LAW matters…now that’s RICH…Oh…thank you…I needed a BIG F*#king laugh….
“Logan Act?”..now that’s funny. Ever hear of the Constitution, you innorant F*#K?…Hahahaha…
You’re just mad because the Senate has grown a set of Gazoombas (or maybe they poll Americans) and found out the people find Obama REPULSIVE…LMAO…I’m just so glad they slapped that stupid Some Beech upside the head…it’s bee hilarious to watch…
Not exactly the best way to make yourself a credible part of a conversation.
The Logan Act seems applicable here and besides, as people from all political positions have been saying (including conservatives), this letter is out of line with all the traditions of the conduct of foreign policy in this country.
Democrats extolling the virtues of the LAW…LMAO…you ignorant Dumb@$$…
Covering yourself with all sorts of glory, aren’t you?
Just educating your ignorant and blind liberal @$$…
Can’t blame me. You’re not giving me much to work with…Dumb@$$…LMAO….
Not much working over there.
The NYT cropping out Bush in Selma is FAR more racist than any of the Bull-S#!t you are trying to push as racism.
Why is FITS ignoring the NYT racism???
They didn’t crop him out – try getting your information from reliable sources moron. But I bets you’da liked ifin those dead negros floating in New Orleans had been cropped out back in 205 – eh?
Lie ALL THE TIME Much??….LMAO….
Not even close. These are your people…they are you. You are them. Embrace it, you racist POS. It must KILL you that Haley welcomed the president. Congratulations Gov. Haley for rising above the moronic faction of the Republican Party, whose face is that of Big T.
Do you EVER get tired of showing how vapid – and talentless – you are?
Note the spelling & grammar of the majority of the posts.
It is not a commentary on anything. A few idiots who visit her page saw them and the idiots who posted saw them. It only becomes an issue when it is perpetuated and spread by people like Will Folks. Then the cycle repeats itself. But you do have to make a living so that you can raise your crumb crunchers in this “backwards state”.
So, are you private schooling your children or are you willingly subjecting them to the failed system that is our public school system?
There are racist idiots in every state.
What is it with the photo on the left? Nikki is dressed as though she is going on a date with Mussolini…..!!
My anaconda don’t, my anaconda don’t, my anaconda don’t like none, unless you got buns, hun.
Imagine a date with Il Duce! A march on Rome or a utility-pole swinging?
WELL!!!SURPRISE!!!SURPRISE!!!SURPRISE!!!HOOKER BOOTS, REALLY???l thought it was fairies that wore boots, but it’s nice we got a Gov that can set a trend. What else would you expect? Back in 2012 since everybody in both the Romney & Obama campaigns KNEW what would happen with South Carolina’s 9 electoral votes our 2-bit tramp governor was campaigning, aka grubbing for votes, in battleground states like Virginia & Florida. Yet she had time from that busy schedule to run to Pickens & personally endorse Larry Martin. If she’d roll in the hay with a penishead like Larry Martin, that clearly shows that she’ll be anybody’s honey for the right kinda money.
I would expect the Secret Service to follow up on the threats. Haley should have anticipated this and prevented it. Lots of nuts out there. Too bad she is willing to give them a public platform to spew ignorance and hate.
Hitler’s SS would be proud of you, Obama and Obama’s NSA…
You can’t blame the ignorance of the comments on Haley’s or Obama’s “failed” school system unless you have evidence that the posters are under seven years old, amirite?
No, you are NOT right. You’re a F*#king Dumb@$$…about 65% of the SC’s voters think Obama is a miserable president…
And on Nov. 4, a majority of the country sent the message they have figured out what a Lying F*#k he is…
Hey FITS, 47 US Senators just sent a letter to Iran telling them Obama is an ignorant F*#k up…and if they think they can now nuke Jewish people, because Obama gave them the OK…they will get the S#!t kicked out of them, if they try…
I bet you and Ron-Paul soiled your Depends on that one…you F*#king Obama-@$$-kissing idiots…LMAO…
Whats is going to be funny is the southern rednecks that posted those comments are going to get a wonderful visit from the secret service. ..haha
South Carolina has the largest black population in the country. at New York, not Chicago, not LA, not anywhere where they vote Democrat
How so, please? This is news to me…..
Research the internet it’s what it’s here for
Clyburn is so fucking FULL of shit and himself, that it flows out of his ears and nose!
Nikki screwed the pooch with this pos.
Are you really surprised by this???
I think that all but three of those comments shown were posted by folks who just wanted to get attention for themselves. Their mental abilities are suspect, and some of them may be incarcerated. Nothing either useful or beneficial comes from them. They are an embarrassment to South Carolina.
I call those people Drudgetards. They read the headlines and go straight to commenting when they are on news sites.
I look at this site less and less as time goes on. I seek insight and thought-provoking commentary, whether conservative or liberal. If I cannot get it here, I go to other sites. I am tired of relentless assaults on liberals and Obama. I am also tired of liberal excesses. But this site sounds more and more like it is populated by kids in kindergarten who call each other names, and bash each other for the sake of bashing. Is this what civil discourse has come to?
“Is this what civil discourse has come to?”
I occasionally see some open discussion that is more civil. I all-too-rarely see any that is notably rationale or intellectually honest.
So “when in Rome . . . .”
Why are they redacted? Each person posted in a public forum to a government official.
And these are the semiliterate and Net-connected white trash. God knows what half-grunted cracker comments you’d get out from the “off-the-grid” (utilities cut off) trailers of the Lexington County pineywood hinterlands
