CONGRESSIONAL CANDIDATE COURTS THE GAY VOTE
S.C. Rep. Jenny Horne became the first GOP state lawmaker ever to speak at a gay pride event this week – laying down another ideological marker in her bid to win a seat in the U.S. Congress.
“I want you to know that I support equality,” Horne told a crowd in Columbia, S.C.
The fourth-term state lawmaker is running against former S.C. governor Mark Sanford for the Palmetto State’s first congressional district – a seat Sanford won in a special election in 2013.
The district is anchored by the historic, socially progressive city of Charleston, S.C., where an openly gay candidate is currently one of the frontrunners in the race for mayor.
Once a reliably pro-freedom, pro-free market vote, Sanford has veered wildly to the left on fiscal issues since returning to the U.S. Congress two years ago. His latest betrayal? Joining fellow so-called “conservative” lawmakers in embracing liberal U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan as the next “Republican” Speaker of the U.S. House.
Sanford was a two-term governor and likely 2012 presidential candidate – but his career was undone by an extramarital affair (and subsequent meltdown). In fact the chronically narcissistic lawmaker continues to struggle when it comes to oversharing about his personal life.
Horne? She’s a longtime fiscal liberal best known for her tearful (and factually challenged) address on the floor of the S.C. House of Representatives during the debate over the Confederate flag.
She has represented S.C. House District 94 (which includes parts of Charleston and Dorchester counties) since 2009.
Will her overture to the gay community work?
We’ll have to see …
Is she a direct decedent of Sappho as well? If you gonna lie about your lineage might as well lie big.
Only you can decide in person,
I hear she’s the niece of Liberace.
The smart members of the GOP are reaching out to minorities and other groups.
Looks like the knuckle dragging, flag supporting types getting left behind.
Log Cabin Republicans been there all along, voting Republican because they aren’t brain dead and following the scapegoat to harvest in the voting booth.
good luck with that
Mark Sanford has just released a statement that he is gay.
LGBT groups issued a statement of support for Sanford.
Due to harsh reaction from coservatives, Mark Sanford issued a clarification of his previous Statement. II am actually bisexual. I believe that a man is capable of having multiple “Soul Mates”.
Mark Sanford didn’t issue an such statement. Sanford >>>>>>>>>>>>> Lying Bitch Horne.
She’s totally going to be a Congresswoman. The way she smacked those racist flag supporters the fuck down was brilliant. Her and Haley are too smart to remain in SC.
All smart people leave SC. Washington is calling.
Well, the GOP is going back to the days when they elected liberals, like Ronald Reagan.
But the Democrats NEVER stopped being racists, like when you Democrats – and only Democrats – owned slaves…Republicans freed slaves.
You just HATE white people, now…instead of blacks…
That’s nuts. Republicans owned slaves as well. You’re way off of the “conservative” and neo-confederate talking points on this one. Don’t you remember? The Civil War wasn’t about slavery at all, according to their rhetoric. Your revisionist history is beyond absurd.
You must be a product of SC’s stellar education system. Have you ever read a book in your miserable life? That liberal Reagan would puke at you republicans today.
i gotta book of ptchers my two dads read at me
Her mother and father are both homo. She is descended from a long line of homos.
Yes, because that would be biologically probable.
quit playing with the turkey baster. Bad enough that yer lickin it…
Then she dos NOT support the Homosexual lobby. The Gay lobbyists want EXTRA rights, and discrimination in their favor…not equality. They GET equality by a Constitution that bprotecs ALL of us…not special protections, just for them…
But FITS is now defining EQUALITY as the Leftist he is…just like he illegally redefined marriage using a corrupt Supreme Court.
Marriage is defined by the government. Just like Kim Davis argued you can’t get legally married unless you have a marriage license from a government official, her. The church has zero say in what is or who can get married.
No one was ever STOPPED from getting married. Married meant MAN and WOMAN by the LEGAL, Constitutional definition. You perverted the definition of it – and the courts wrote law – for a small, liberal special interest group, who define yourselves by your bedroom habits.
Marriage pre-dates the Constitution of the USA, and those of its member states. In the main, it has been left to the spiritual communities or governing bodies to decree what is and is not marriage. The only purpose for the government ever being involved with marriage at all is for the usual reasons that government does anything: to control people and raise money.
Like it or not, the Constitution itself gets constantly interpreted. There are activist judges on both sides of the equality debates.
Get used to the fact that you don’t always get to decide what is and is not constitutional in the US of A.
No, wait. You and pogo-flippy don’t get to decide even a minute percentage of it. All you do is piss, moan, wail, and whine — all in the form of berating others for not being the perfect patriots you present yourself to be.
Just two damned toxic stew-balls of seething resentment and hate, pretending to be a crock-pot full.
It’s a crock all right. A crock of shit.
American LAW is, and ALWAYS has been, based on the MORAL dictates of the people. It’s why we tolerate Welfare.
When the COURT MAKES law- based on the perverted whims of ignorant and special interest sons-of-bitches, like you- …you have fucked the Constitution.
You copy and paste, liberal, brain dead DRONE. You FORCED your definitions on us…Idiot…
You just stick to working that blog, dipshit. You might get it up to ten actual non-sockpuppets of you and p0go/Sybil one of these days.
You hate when I slap the SHIT out of your vapid COPY-AND-PASTE, Robot ass…with the truth. Don’t you???…
PS: Did the Sun News ask you to give them back the $650K you cost them by lying about a guy just because he was a Republican…???..
I’m so glad they got sued and lost, because they listened to your ignorant clams…Good for those stupid liberals…Hope those Bastards go bankrupt, and Horry Independent OWNS the country…and the billions in ad revenue…
Not a penny has been collected on that stupid Kelley lawsuit, and not a penny will ever be. It will not survive the appeals process, to become case law. And you damned well know it.
And if you probably know I had nothing to do with the charges that were made against the real perps, such as Tom Rice, Gresham Barrett, Mike Wooten, Doug Wendel, Shep Guyton, David & Wrenzie Rice, Matthew and David Brittain, et. al. Nor was I responsible for the reportage on same.
Said reportage, btw, was done, not just by TSN, but by others as well. The Herald, which you claim “owns the country” (check your spelling there, bub), uncovered an important piece of it, having to do with Surfside Beach pols. Paul Gable also contributed his share, and it was he that was first informed by a teller at South Atlantic Bank exactly what had gone down there.
Stop your damned scare-mongering over that suit/verdict, and the equally stupid nuisance suit by Bigguns, or whatever his name is. Nobody is impressed by any of it.
McClatchy will go bankrupt, like it’s headed. If the liberal trial lawyers can run out the clock’ til then, you may get away with dodging accountability for being an ignorant and lying FUCK…
You have perverted the law, so that the guilty get off…and you don’t give a shit…because you’re a corrupt, and lost bastard…YOU are what is wrong w/ the country….
Waiting for them to come after me.
Not holding my breath. Or worrying the least little bit.
Can you get up from fucking that donkey in the ass and speak a little louder ? Cannot hear your moronic voice !!
You’re just too fucking Ignorant to understand anything reasonable. The DNC keeps its dolts stupid, so they can control you..and rape you while you giggle, like the brain-dead fuck you are…
Extra right? You and Flip bore the living shit out of us. Start your own blog…oh, wait.
You just HATE anything, or anyone, not in lockstep Gestapo mode with your propaganda. You have Force your Bullshit on us, and when we point it out…you shit all over yourselves. Dumbass. You’re anything BUT bored. You’re mad and hateful.
From Jenny’s RINO horn come both blasphemy and scorn for the living Word of God
Like con-stabbing Haley and I-Lie-To-Cons-Joe Wilson—when laid beneath the sod
They’ll say…I ripped down patriots’ flag and I so like to brag and the RINO reward I got
Put me down here with a world of LGBTs and…Lord God is this place far TOO hot !!!
Patriots? Those were traitors who got their asses handed to them.
Just like the flag supporters today and those against marriage equality.
Tonto–not to be confused with the real Tonto–bashed patriots and loved LGBTs
But no one intelligent would listen to him because…lay down with dogs?…get fleas !!!
This is the real Tonto, you immigrant turd.
Let’s see. No traitors’ flag flying on the statehouse. It’s now strictly a symbol of impotent white hate to a massive majority of real Americans. Marriage equality is now and forever the law of the land. You confederate pussies just can’t stop losing. Now even republicans are distancing themselves from you toxic scum. Why pander to losers, right?
Tonto–STILL not to be confused with Tonto–told God He was wrong about Sodom and Gomorrah
And then God–of course being God–sent Tonto to Hell where his only flag was eternal…sorrow !!!
Please. True Patriots accept the fact that the South was defeated in the Civil War by The United States of America. Neo-Confederates are not real Patriots. They have severely divided loyalties. The “Lost Cause” is not called that for no reason. Too many have adopted the tortured defense of the indefensible evil of chattel slavery that was put forth by the elite “Bourbon Democrats”, as though it were Gospel. It is not. It is more akin to the blasphemous writings of those who worship Satan.
I accept that my ancestors had their reasons for owning slaves (those few who did) and fighting for the Confederacy. No point in judging them now. I honor them, because without them I would not exist.
The VA honors dead Confederate soldiers, too, and that is as it should be. It was decreed by law that this was to be done as a part of healing this nation after that horrible war.
What about the IDGAF community ?
Damn .This is the 26th one I’ve missed…
She is as ugly as Hillary.
She has done her math. Why not go for the LGBT vote? The rest of the sheep will follow. But let’s think for a moment…we’re not just talking about a few nice little gay couples who simply want to be “married” and live peacefully. The Transgender community are making demands that would allow a man to be in a public restroom with a little girls. In addition, they are endorsing sex changing surgery for teenagers. Think about it…a confused 15 year old boy getting his cock amputated! Wake up people!
LGBT vote, comparatively is inconsequential, OTOH its progressivist allies do tend to enforce party discipline in the big D side of the ticket.
BTW, when does Hillary endorse Jenny Horne?
LGBT vote may be comparatively inconsequential. But the LGBT money is BIG.
Just popped in to remind everybody that slavery is a symptom of the natural order of things. You know, “Natural,” as in whatever is, is. It takes remarkable self-control, acceptance of responsibility, and embracement of the precepts of free will – all conservative virtues – to eschew slavery. The problem is that they are neither Democrat nor Republican virtues, per se, but Conservative virtues, lately adopted by Libertarians. A vote for Democrats is a vote for suicide. A vote for Republicans is a vote for naïveté. Democrats don’t know what is right. Republicans don’t know how to achieve what’s right. Neither are below reproach, yet if there is to be no Conservative 3rd party, one side must be approached. In the end, it’s all about power, anyway, isn’t it?
Damn good post!
In the end, it’s all about power, anyway, isn’t it?
As ol’ Vladimir Ilyich said “Who, whom?”
“In the end, it’s all about power, anyway, isn’t it?”
Yes, it is…but power over others specifically.(individual “power” is fine as long as you aren’t forcing anyone else to do anything(children excepted))
The paradigm & principle for the last 5000 years is flawed because it starts with an involuntary relationship.
Locke was great on property rights & definition, but never addressed the inherent conflict between the “social contract”(which is used to justify government) and the idea of natural property rights. (and he wasn’t the only one)
Until this failure of principle is addressed somehow, humanity is doomed to repeat the failure of government over and over again. There will be no lasting solution-ever. (aside from the immorality of property rights(and NAP) violations)
The degree to which property rights are respected always seem to correlate long term with the success of any given society/civilization.
A quote worthy of L. Neill Smith.
That gay guy she is sitting next too looks great. Well dressed too.
go get em donald u ol sock sucker u
What would great great Grand Pappy Davis say about this?
She then added, “We have transgendered folks in my own family. As you are all aware, my ancestor, Jefferson Davis, was wearing a dress when captured by the Union army.”
So when is Chip Limehouse throwing his hat in the ring and how soon is the Campsen camp behind him?
She has not announced for Congress has she? Has she announced she is NOT running for re-election to the SC House?
Was Horne the Lowcountry Legislator who was videoed in the back seat of a Ford dancing with another Lowcountry Legislator to the tune of Shake, Rattle and Roll ?
If it was not Horne, anyone know who it was ?
This woman seems to have taken up the banner to support all the suppressed and downtrodden in this state. We will to have her fitted for a cape and and super-duped gadget belt if she keeps up her super-hero crusading.
Personally, I would just like to see her go away.
Her Great Grand Pappy was gay… (boo hoo)
Isn’t her 15 minutes up yet?
Glad she is doing this type of outreach. No one should discriminate against anyone. We are equal under the law.
