The Daily GOP (Conservative) Ignominious: Hannity and Cunningham Conservative Sexists And Bigots

Small image of the day!

You and I know Fox News. 

If that statement is true, you know, as do I, Fox news is about entertainment for people who crave a daily dose of conservative 'red meat' (.e.g., sexism  racism, bigotry, jingoism and homophobia). If we know the business model at Fox, the following interchange should be of no surprise. Sean Hannity interviewed a misogynist and progressive Fox News contributor.

Hang-on a second, let's visit another interchange involving a sexist/racist/misogynist who is not a multi-millionaire Fox News entertainer.

Earlier this year at the CPAC "craziness", a Tea Party group sponsored an event on "How to handle being called a racist when you know you are not". Of course, with a black conservative facilitator.  Wow! How about a session on "What did you do that would make a person call you a racist." The GOP and conservatives do not think along those lines. 

The Tea Party gathering replete with noted black facilitator drew avowed racist group as surely as flies are drawn to dog feces.  The resultant interchange illustrated root fissures of the Tea Party that reach into white supremacy.  We are linking the interchange not as a statement against the young man as a racist, our interest is in his remarks to a woman in the audience (a conservative black woman).   

Think Progress narrative. Racist speaker Scott Terry, White Student Council.  
......When asked by Think Progress if he’d accept a society where African-Americans were permanently subservient to whites, he said “I’d be fine with that.” He also claimed that African-Americans “should be allowed to vote in Africa,” and that “all the Tea Parties” were concerned with the same racial problems that he was.  
At one point, a woman challenged him on the Republican Party’s roots, to which Terry responded, “I didn’t know the legacy of the Republican Party included women correcting men in public.” 
He claimed to be a direct descendant of Confederate President Jefferson Davis.
The alleged Jefferson Davis descendant's mindset is obviously shared by Sean Hannity and Bill Cunningham regarding a woman's place." He also spoke rather directly about the foundation of the Tea Party.  He actually foretold what was to come on Fox News within months.

Sexist and bigoted Hannity and Cunningham background with the Fox News contributor Holder.

Published on Jun 20, 2013

(June 20, 2013) - On Sean Hannity's show Thursday night, an argument over whether Attorney General Eric Holder committed perjury exploded between guest Bill Cunningham and Fox Analyst Tamara Holder (no relation to Eric). Cunningham, incensed over what he felt was Eric Holder's consistent mendacity, began screaming and jabbing his finger at Tamara Holder, who was sitting right next to him. "You are judicially challenged and you're one of the stooges of the left that will always be there to excuse away criminal behavior," he said to her. "You suffer from Bob Beckel-itis, which is an incurable fatal condition of liberalism that caused people like Eric Holder to be the consulary of Barack Hussein Obama." 
"I really hope that when you speak to a judge, you don't point your finger in the person's face the entire time," Holder said, jabbing a finger right back at him. "Your finger does not make your point." 
"Who's finger is in my face right now?" Cunningham asked. 
"Mine, because I'm telling you to shut up."

"You shut up!" Cunningham responded. "Know your role and shut your mouth." 
This caused some ooohs from Hannity's crew. The host attempted to regain control of the segment, but the two went at it again moments later. 
"[Eric Holder's] like a piano player in a horror house, not knowing what's going on on the second floor," Cunningham said. "Let's face it, Tamara, he is a stooge man for the radical left." 
"What is your obsession with stooges?" Holder asked. "Aren't stooges like little elves?" 
"I'm sitting next to you!" Cunningham said, again drawing some ooohs from the Hannity crew. "You're a liberal stooge, and an excuse monger for the Obama administration." 
At this point Holder dropped her head, took a deep breath, and said, "Never mind." 
"What are you going to cry?" Cunningham asked. 
"No, I'm not going to cry," a newly-defiant Holder responded. 
At the end of the segment, which Hannity seemed to want out of as much as anybody, he instructed the two to shake hands. 
"I don't shake hands with trolls," Holder said.

The latest interaction between Holder and her cohort Hannity with bigoted guest Cunningham. While I hate to admit this, I think even Bill O'Reilly might have intervened on Cunningham's sexist and misogynist treatment of the progressive fox News contributor.

How would you accept treatment of your mother, aunt, grandmother, daughter, wife, friend or girlfriend (significant other), if Hannity and Cunningham treated them as such?

Segregation Now, Segregation Tomorrow, Segregation Forever!!!

Montgomery, AL
Inaugural address 

George Wallace's inauguration proclamation appears to serve as an anthem for a growing number of Republicans. Despite Wallace's membership in the Democratic Party, his social views seem to permeate a growing number of today's young conservative whites (and a couple of GOP ideology leaders who use electronic media to spread their highly compensated message).  The most vocal long for times well past simple alleged fear of being pushed into a social state (a lower strata of deprivation and persecution) apparently reserved for others.  And, they do so without one obvious reflecting on how the nation's past impacted African-Americans, Native Americans, Asians and Latinos. Alas, because they do not care. The Circa  2012 segregationist are also quite vocal of their wish to return to their desired state: white supremacy. 
"Diversity is not a strength," (Matthew) Heimbach told the Baltimore Sun, adding, "We're being displaced from our own country," in reference to immigration. He also told The Blaze that the issue of "forced segregation" should be left to the states.


CPAC Tea Party event.  Avowed racist Matthew Heimbach and slavery rationalist Scott Terry attend with clear plans to disrupt the black conservative speaker.

This years CPAC event topped last years event, which topped the previous years event related to outright affection for and exhibitions of racism. A tea party organization hosted a CPAC break-out session focused of helping people deflect charges of racism: "Trump the Race Card." The session organizer hired well know "money-grabber" K. Carl Smith, Frederick Douglass Republican  to host the session. The rest is history and well known by anyone who watches MSNBC.  I know that Fox News did not carry the interchange between he racist Scott and the 'money-grabber" Smith. I also suspect CNN gave the interchange limited broadcast if at all. 

Huffington Post published a good recap of the racist resistance to African-Americans at CPAC and resistance to African-Americans in the GOP.  

While Reince Priebus and others are traveling across the country claiming to throw (bad) money at outreach to minorities, the future of the GOP and a specific wing of the party, is seething with racial animus, hatred, and paranoia.  

Yet another example from the mind of young Matthew Heimbach.

Priebus as RNC Chair can speak false mantra as  much as required to advance the GOP fallacy based and superstitious efforts to allegedly attract minorities, the realty speaks differently and the reality speaks to the core of the party. 

Mediaite also published a piece to accompany the longer version video posted above.  The Mediaite piece shows yet another perspective of the interchange between Scott and Katy Jordan a documentary filmmaker.  Despite the more widely broadcast version of  the K. Carl Smith video (with some in the audience showing obvious signs of dismay at Scott's racist tirade) Jordan published a different perspective of the interaction. Kim Brown, who was seated near Heimbach and Terry she was shouted down by members of the CPAC audience.

The Blaze published an expose` on Townson University White Student Union (WSU)  founder, Heimbach.  The Blaze piece includes a link to the WSU Blog.  Of course, my inquisitive mind facilitated a click of the link.  Two articles standout as noteworthy.  One article title refers to Heimbach as "Commander."  The other noteworthy piece was a march 4th, post related to WSU's plans to attend a Ron Paul speech at George Washington University.

Both Rand and Ron Paul have documented expositions and archived information related to their anti-Civil Rights beliefs and positions, their angst about EEOC Title VII Fair Employment legislation and their Libertarian lust for states rights. "States Rights" is a euphemistic idyllic state of libertarian and racist Land of OZ.

The Atlantic Wire's March 15, piece revealed yet more about the "Trump the Race Card" session. 

Before we move to a short video Thom Hartmann interview with Matthew Heimbach, let's finish on the very vocal Scott Terry.  

On March, 16, CBS News writer Jake Miller published a piece related to the segregationist in the CPAC session. 
After the panel, the blog reported that Terry asked, "Why can't we just have segregation?"
Terry, who was sporting a Rick Santorum sticker and claimed to be a direct descendant of Confederate President Jefferson Davis, told Think Progress he'd "be fine with" a society in which African-Americans were permanently subservient to white people. He also said African-Americans "should be allowed to vote in Africa." 
At one point, when challenged on the heritage of the GOP by a female onlooker, Terry responded, "I didn't know the legacy of the Republican Party included women correcting men in public."
Also note these mean espouse segregation even within their political party.  "Segregation Now, Segregation Tomorrow, Segregation Forever!!!"

Thom Hartmann and Matthew Heimbach.

The Atlantic Wire link above has telling remarks about the extent to which Heimbach longs for a time when black people were overshadowed and oppressive under Jim Crow Laws.

Even more revealing than the words of the two white supremacists is their affinity for all things "PAUL."  I offer the GOP's CPAC "straw dumpling" winner is an apple that fell not far from the trunk of his fathers tree.

And there-in lies the very reasons minorities and informed women will shun the GOP. We hope they party continues to shoot itself in the foot as we approach the 2014 Congressional Elections.  We fully expect the party to stumbled farther into the abyss of regressivism and shame as we look forward tot eh 2016 presidential election.
