CHIP LIMEHOUSE BOOTED FROM H.L. HUNLEY FACILITY
A South Carolina lawmaker is livid after being told to leave the parking lot of a government-owned facility.
S.C. Rep. Chip Limehouse was told to leave the premises of the Clemson University building which houses the H.L. Hunley – a Confederate submarine which has received millions of South Carolina tax dollars since it was raised from the bottom of Charleston harbor in 2000.
According to our sources, Limehouse – who has announced his intention to step down from the S.C. General Assembly at the end of his current term – arrived at Clemson’s so-called “Restoration Institute” earlier this week with a film crew.
What happened next is unclear …
Sources close to the school tell us Limehouse and his film crew were attempting to gain access to the building – at which point they were rebuffed. Specifically, they were informed by school officials that access to the site was “restricted.”
“Apparently (Limehous) showed his ass big time,” one source told us.
Sources close to Limehouse tell us that’s not how things went down at all …
According to these sources, Limehouse and his crew never attempted to enter the building. Instead, they were “accosted” in the parking lot by school officials. It’s not clear exactly what Limehouse and his crew intended to film … or why their presence in the parking lot created such consternation.
We’ll let readers know if we get any additional information about this bizarre exchange …
This website has consistently opposed the expenditure of tax dollars on the restoration of the Hunley – arguing such an undertaking should be conducted by the private sector. We have also consistently opposed spending tax dollars on other Confederate memorabilia – arguing that such purchases do not represent core functions of government.
I can hardly wait for this story to play out – what possible reason could “Chipper the Whale” have for filming the Hunley?
An ad that probably includes the Confederate Flag as he starts to gear up for the Governor’s race?
Lord save us!
Mullah. As all SC Politicians know.
They were there to make a porn film of him pleasuring himself with that giant rusty dildo.
Dipshit wants to move the Confederate Cotex down to the Hunley Museun so Pinkney’s congregation can see it more often. What an asshole.
I think that’d ensure they never see it.
The Hunley is in an old warehouse on the defunct Charleston Naval Base – about as far from the public eye as it could get without being pushed back into the ocean.
Oh but think about it. You get the bloody rag there, then get the House to appropriate say $4 million to have the Hunley and the rag displayed in a downtown waterfront museum. Maybe even put on Calhoun near the Aquarium – heck fly it over the Aquarium. Maybe with a life-size scuplture of Dillon.
Kicking Limehouse out? Go Clemson!
See you got rid of Fake Flip.
He’s trying to make a comeback, I already reported him again. Hopefully they will IP ban him this time.
Honestly, it would take some of the fun out of it. But it would up the conversation.
His trolling can be entertaining mainly because it is sad to see how far he’ll go to try to get at someone, but he has gotten out of hand recently. One of his names the other day made you out to be a pedophile. Really sad. He could at least grow up a little bit.
He’s been makin’ fun of me since Christmas. I dunno, seems he gets really touchy when you mention stuff like CNI, some guy named Dink, Florence, Conway. The word stringer gets him going. I don’t understand it really. Oh, and don’t ever mention that mediation coming up in March.
Dig deeper and you’ll see it was an honest mistake. Limehouse thought there was gigantic submarine sandwich for him to eat, and became outraged to find out “it was just a goddamn moldy-ass submarine from the Civil War.”
You’ll note from looking at the right side of the picture that Limehouse actually took a few bites out of the sub before being tasered by security guards.
Don’t taze me bro!
Should taze limeaway – he just’s wants to make a big deal to try and move the bloody tampon down to Charleston from the Relic Room.
WAR BETWEEN THE STATES, Suh!
Beg your Pardon, War of Northern Aggression, Sir !
Either way, you pussies lost big time. You have butthurt built into your DNA at this point!
Yankee DNA =
fucking 24/7 asshole
Matches, cotton bales, March winds, whiskey, lots of cannons, winners.
See, just look at that deep seeded butthurt.
You forgot ‘winners’.
check the post, just added
You just described Donald Trump.
And you idiots are about to give him your primary?
Wait… isn’t that nascar Fans?
Of the 23 Nascar tracks, 60% (14) are located outside of the South which makes the majority of track based fans non-Southern or in other words, Yankees
we killed more of you bluebellies scumbag
That’s not enough of a sub sandwich to satisfy him. Maybe he thought it was the appetizer?
Can we expect to see him become the new spokesperson for Subway now that Jared the wanna-be pedophile is taking it up the ass from inmates?
Or does he have to lose weight first?
I believe he has a relative in Lexington County who has been on the receiving end of Pedo Bear allegations. Surely, one of them is qualified.
Core function? It just so happens that Clemson has a core function known as racism, which perfectly aligns with the preservation of this pro-slavery icon.
Chip’s big ass sounds justa bout right,right now.Come on home for a nooner,big boy.
The whole project is paid for with public dollars. Limehouse or anyone else should be able to have a look.
Wonder what they are hiding.
Extremely sensative artifacts that don’t need chubby hands all over them?
Maybe he was trying to see if one of the confederate soldiers left their lunch in there?
Rocky , Folks give you a raise ?
Silly ass Cockroach, seems like he would know anything paid for and still being paid for by taxpayers is NOT public property
Next time the Clemson crowd tries to land their submarine at his airport he can exact pay back –
Tower to Hunley, Tower to Hunley, please be advised this airport is private property and you will have to down your periscope and find another fucking place to dive,dive your rust bucket of a submarine/ Also while I have your attention Hunley, you fuckers have stirred up some bad ass Karma by pulling up that sub and disturbing the resting place of those dead sailors-not nice, not nice at all
Agreed, major blunder. Waste of taxpayers money.
Blubberbutt is up to no good, You can count on that.
DON’T AGREE AT ALL!!!!!!
Tourism is SC’s biggest business by far. Tourist want to see Southern Stuff, which includes Confederate Museums and history. The Hunley is a big Tourist Draw and is paying for itself. Along with all the other historical culture in SC: Slave Quarters, Forts, battle fields, monuments, etc.
Obviously Limehouse was going to grandstand at the taxpayers expense. He’s proven over and over to be a Ego Maniac with no ethics at all.
For those interested – here was Lime-away’s plan straight from the PC (I need to start reading it again) –
“Months after members of the General Assembly battled with each other to bring the Confederate battle flag down from the Statehouse grounds, a Charleston lawmaker is proposing displaying it in the Lowcountry.
Republican Rep. Chip Limehouse is suggesting moving the Confederate Relic Room to the Hunley Museum in North Charleston to boost its visitor numbers. Limehouse, chairman of the House’s Transportation, Regulatory and Cultural Subcommittee, said the rest of the state’s Military Museum could remain in the Midlands or elsewhere.”
Hey Chip, that stupid rag, hanging over the State House, was divisive and an insult. So yeah, let’s bring it down to Charleston so it can be down here and insult our citizens. Hell, why not just fly it front of Pinkney’s church – you fat bastard. How freakin’ stupid does one have to be. Burn that POS (the flag) – and let us all gather round with pints of beer. As for LIme-away – we can take care of him later.
Burning…Makes me think of this story which makes me smile every time I read it.
Make way y’all servants! Very important citizen coming through with cameras!
Limehouse likes to visit a particular local Charleston Publix grocery store (near his residence). Let me tell you, the clerks at this store apparently do not think much of him after he once came in while I was there. One clerk stated, “I can’t believe people are stupid enough to vote for the jerk.”
Idiot. Limehouse doesn’t live near a Publix.
the hole in the side is where the ohio scientist wants to put the screen door
Can’t just show up places with a camera crew. Not quite how it works, regardless of who owns the place, who you THINK you are…
Yo…Slimehouse—that’s right—YOU Chippo—after your gutlessly ripping the flag of patriots let us say
As Joe-I-Lie-To-Cons-Wilson would be advised to do—we know YOU are not running because you’re…D O A !!!

— this is a historic wreck . lost with all hands. The hunley deserves a place in the Smithsonian , not some private hack museum. The civil war happened. history happened. You would wipe it all out in the name of political correctness , but in truth you would wipe out an event that shaped and defined our nation. we owe it to ourselves and those after us not to have our history , our heritage fade into nothingness. for those who forget history are doomed to repeat it
Isn’t the public tired of financing crooks through all the states handouts to non profits, especially non profits set up by the state and doesn’t believe in transparency. Look at where the money goes and we are going to be skinned out of 40 million for the latest in a confederate memorial which is going into the pockets of people on the “boards”.
