STATE LAWMAKER BLASTS “REPUBLICAN” LEADERSHIP OVER BANNER BRAWL …

|| By FITSNEWS || We’ve written a couple of columns already highlighting the acrimony existing within the S.C. House of Representatives following last week’s contentious Confederate flag debate.

Which, as we’ve noted, didn’t have to be contentious at all …

Dialing the rhetoric up in a big way?  S.C. Rep. Chris Corley, one of the flag’s staunchest supporters.

In an interview with his hometown paper, The Aiken Standard, Corley pulled precisely zero punches in his assessment of S.C. governor Nikki Haley, Speaker of the House Jay Lucas and GOP majority leader Bruce Bannister.

“The bottom line for a lot of Republicans is we’ve got a Speaker who just flat out lied to us; we’ve got a Majority Leader who flat out lied to us; they’re both weak,” Corley told reporter Maayan Schechter. “And Jay Lucas, not just being a liar, but his selfishness has probably cost 10 to 18 House members their jobs.”

Whoa …

Corley is referring to lawmakers in pro-flag districts who voted to take the controversial banner down – and will now face difficult reelection prospects as a result.

Corley added the flag debate showed “how absurd our party is,” and accused several of his colleagues of changing their votes as part of “back room” deals to “cover themselves.”

One of those accused of changing her vote at the last minute?  S.C. Rep. Jenny Horne – who gave a tearful floor speech against an amendment she was allegedly championing only a few hours earlier behind closed doors.

In another interview with the Standard, Corley called Lucas “spineless” and accused S.C. governor Nikki Haley – a former flag supporter – of having “no moral compass” and being about “whatever is trending on Facebook and Twitter and whatever can get her to Washington, D.C.”

Damn …

Corley also referred to S.C. Senator Shane Massey of Aiken as a “coward” for missing the flag debate in the State Senate.

Most significantly, Corley went on the record accusing Lucas of lying to his caucus over how the flag debate was going to play out.  According to him, Lucas told GOP lawmakers that if they amended the adjournment (a.k.a. “sine die”) resolution governing their extended summer session to include a debate over the flag – he would permit the measure to go through the committee process.

Why does this matter?  Because it would have enabled flag supporters to go on the record defending their banner before it was taken down – which we addressed extensively in our requiem on the flag.

According to one House leader the original plan – proposed on June 19 by S.C. Rep. Kirkman Finlay – was to immediately send a bill substituting the South Carolina State flag for the Confederate flag to the House judiciary committee.  After three days of public hearings, the committee would have sent this bill to the floor of the House – which would have spent a day or two debating it before sending it to the State Senate.

The whole process would have taken two weeks … maybe less.

And the judiciary chairman – an ardent flag supporter – actually supported the proposal as well as the expedited timetable for public debate.

“He wasn’t happy about it but he realized raising the state flag and sending the Confederate flag to the Relic Room was the best outcome possible from his perspective,” one legislative leader told us.

Instead, House leaders deferred action on the flag to the State Senate – which waited until July 6 to take up its bill calling for both the flag and the flagpole to be removed.

“(Lucas) said, ‘Trust me, I need everybody to vote for this sine die resolution, and if you vote for this, I promise you it will go through the full process; it will go to the Judiciary Committee, it will go to subcommittee, it will be fully vetted and then it will come to the floor,'” Corley told the Standard.

That obviously didn’t happen … and when it didn’t, Corley described “a borderline mutiny” in the House.

Beyond the 10-20 lawmakers who might lose their jobs as a result of the flag vote, there’s the question of whether Lucas and Bannister will keep their jobs.

According to our sources, S.C. Rep. Rick Quinn – crown prince of the political consulting empire run by his father, neo-Confederate Richard Quinn – is already lining up support within the caucus for S.C. Rep. Kenny Bingham or Jimmy Merrill to be the Speaker.

Lucas – who took over the chamber in December following the resignation of former Speaker Bobby Harrell – reportedly hadn’t planned on staying in his post for more than two or three terms.

At this rate he’ll be lucky to survive the year …

“[A]nd will now face difficult reelection prospects as a result.”

Just throwing this out there, but if the security of their seat rests on the single issue of whether or not we fly a flag atop a gov’t monument, then what does that actually say about such a seat?

Hell, it’s probably a far cry to expect a person holding such a seat to be held accountable for debating and passing something like, say, a budget?

Saw this comment from “PoodlePlay” over at Salon.com. Offers a pretty harsh explanation for the anger, especially that of the Charleston killer. Direct quote:
“You are witnessing the inchoate rage and rebellion of Southern White N|ggers who have, for generations in the rigidly Classist South, been situated just a half-rung above African Americans, and who have lived with the boot of their White Southern Betters on their necks at every turn. Small wonder that they don’t like being “told what to do.”
White skin notwithstanding, they will never be allowed into the club, and they will live out their miserable, angry and meaningless lives never having understood that the cause of their misery isn’t the folks a half-rung down, but the ones 100 rungs above. They are, in a word, losers, for whom being White is the only thing they had going for them, and now even that is in jeopardy. They quite literally have nothing to left to lose, which only makes them more dangerous. Let’s just hope that a few of them keel over from a stroke before they murder anyone else.” Ouch.

Regurgitating gibberish is worse than writing gibberish. The writer can at least say he was in a hurry and now may think differently.

Just keep sending your messages of hate. That is all anyone will remember of you and your progressive friends.

Pissing off the majority is not the way to success. The flag, which I am thankful was pulled down, was a one off. But your hate will fuel the conservative majority as they do important work in the back rooms of government such as those setting funding for education, law enforcement, etc., to remember that those progressives that oppose conservatives hate conservatives. Just like a racist hate a black, the progressive hates a republican. it is hate that is unintelligent and ruthless and knows no limit.

Hate does not help your cause, but i suspect you know that already. If you wanted peaceful progress you would not be here picking at scabs, spewing hate, but progress is not what you want.

You want the republicans to surrender, you want them to capitulate. In your mind, you are your own god and you want to rule.

And of course you failed to mention that we maintained no real records of black families in the South or their make up in 1900. In addition, you failed to mention that in 1958 a significant majority of black people in the South did not attend school past 9th grade.

Conservatives see hate as their deserved legacy.

Just like those who perpetuated the non-fictional atrocities in Salem, Republicans now look for the devil behind every bush and in the hearts of all those around them, never recognizing that their own souls are now hopelessly corrupt and blind to the light and goodness of God. Abandoning goodness for the hypocrisy of their brothers in hate – for Jesus’ sake.

When a minister of grace speaks from the pulpit, with power and fervid eloquence, and with his hand on the open Bible, of the sacred truths of Christ, and of saint-like lives and triumphant deaths, and of future bliss or misery unutterable… then do Republicans in their pews turn pale, dreading lest the roof should thunder down upon the gray blasphemer and his soulless and unbelieving hearers.

He paused… and heard the swell of what seemed a hymn, rolling solemnly from a distance, with the weight of many voices. He knew the tune; it was a familiar one in the choir of the village meeting-house… and in his mind’s eye, he sees his congregation steeped in sin, and awash with hypocrisy… and he wonders… .”Is hypocrisy among my teachers and fellows any reason why I should quit my dear Faith, and not go after her?”

The light of heaven does not shine upon the scene, for they have all chosen to walk in the darkness. Alone again, the Republican looks up to heaven, but finds his view obscured by a black cloud which seems to contain the voices of many sinners speaking at once, as from a television. It is an omen, for a Republican must not lower his guard even to those he loves, or it could become a distraction and so blind his eyes to heaven.

It is, however, only when the Republican hears his beloved Faith’s voice being swept along in the leftist crowd that he finally surrenders to the darkness. Seeing his beloved in the arms of another, he cries out – “My Faith is gone!”

Democrats are only trying to hide from their legacy. They are and will always be about divisiveness.

divisiveness

a lesser charge… Republicans have pulled on a mask, and deny the scourges of their conservative history.

They have been given over to their shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. and approach oxen unnaturally.

They are not estranged from their lust.

Republicans sup with evil men in places of power, and eat the bread of him that hath an evil eye, and desire his dainty meats, for they are deceitful meats – and Republicans are vile beyond description.:

They are utterly lost, for their conscience has been seared, as with a hot iron.

Prime evidence of why the flag needed to come down. Thanks for confirming that for us

Contrary to you literary critique, this is simply a work illuminating the foolish desires of progressives. it has nothing to do with Blacks, simply imposes on the reader a level of intellect that is unavailable to the handful of posters on the blog.

The only ones who deserve to lose their seats are the ones who didn’t have the guts to vote.

And, ’10-20 lawmakers who might lose their jobs as a result of the flag vote’ is a little hysterical.

SOOOoo….. Has anyone found ANY evidence to Jenny Horne’s claim to be descended from Jefferson Davis? Since it appears to be a lie and all that….

No, but this looks pretty damning to her. If she’s got proof (doubtful) she needs to get it out in the public, yesterday!

It looks like Bill Clinton had a stronger claim if being the first black President than Jenny Horne does of being a descendant of Jefferson Davis. Unless she should counter these claims she should resign from office immediately.
This is only going to further enrage those that are already upset those that were in favor of keeping the flag on the grounds.
If she lied she has given this State a kick in the nuts while were getting a well deserved pat on the back.

Maybe she “identifies” as being a descendant of JD, and we should support her in courageiously coming out and admitting her lifestyle.

“Lucas “spineless” and accused S.C. governor Nikki Haley – a former flag supporter – of having “no moral compass” and being about “whatever is trending on Facebook and Twitter and whatever can get her to Washington, D.C.”

What an irony that one cockroach accuses another of being too committed/good at the game of gaining power at the expense of the masses.

I guess the political drama is easier than actually getting something done for the good of the State. Fire them.

I think we can safely summarize all the many comments and takes into the following:

The flag-fellators lost because they deserved to lose, their unending hatred for black people offending Jesus.

They completely lost: the flag was dragged down to hoots and cheers, like the toppling of Saddam’s statue.

Their noses were rubbed in it for their continuing hatefulness.

I expect the last will go on.

Jenny Horne nee Davis was an inspirational help and we enemies of the flag and the white supremacy it represents thank her for it.

Corley is new to the political game, and with his attitude and name calling it’s apparent he is ignorant to the ins and outs. You just don’t attack your fellow party members. The funny thing is that Corley is not well like in Aiken County. He is a short termer.
