Western NC GOP Calls Youth Voters "bunch of easily led, useful idiots"

The Western North Carolina Republican Party sent out a tweet this morning sharing an article about how students are indoctrinated by America-hating terrorist-loving radical left teachers and professors. If this is how the Republican Party is planning on winning the youth vote, they are as dumb as I thought:

So, this is why the youth vote went to Obama...because they're a bunch of easily led, useful idiots. Makes sense. http://bit.ly/b6Jm

Someone needs to tell the Republicans in North Carolina that voters don't like to be pissed on.

I wouldn't just post this without a call to action, so here it is:

E-mail the NC GOP Chair Linda Daves LCDaves@aol.com and Executive Director Chris McClure mcclure@ncgop.org telling them that they need to respect young voters.

Write a letter to the editor of the Raleigh News & Observer.

If the NCGOP is out of touch

then the WNCGOP is hiding under a rock in a dark cave.

Thanks for posting, Kevin.

Vote Democratic! The ass you save may be your own.

Double thanks

Of course we all know that the only people with half a brain in the universe are Republicans - and that anyone who doesn't agree with their Gingrichized view of government is a useful idiot.

These days, that would amount to somewhere around 75% of the American public.

I just looked on the WNCGOP

I just looked on the WNCGOP Twitter page and scrolled down to when your link sas the tweet was sent. Somehow the WNCGOP deleted all record of eve sending out that tweet. It seems all that is left to prove it is your screengrab.


You know, I agree. Why would Linda Daves care that someone in her party is doing their damndest to make sure that even fewer younger voters identify themselves as conservative? It's not like the future of the party rests on it or anything. It's fine with me if the implosion of the NCGOP starts in Western NC.

Vote Democratic! The ass you save may be your own.


We cannot reasonably be expected to control every word out of the mouth of every Republican in North Carolina. I am flattered that you folks think I am good enough at communications to accomplish that feat. However, even if we could exercise that kind of control, we wouldn't be in interested in doing so. That kind of censorship stands against the ethic by which our party exists in the first place.

Good Lord with the Drama, Brent

Damage control, man, damage control. Nobody wants you to sensor the idiots. It helps our side. Please let them keep making asses out of themselves and your party. Trust me, the last thing I want you to do is sensor them. It's much too entertaining watching the implosion.

I just think it is in the best interest of your party if you don't alienate the newest voting block and the very people who represent the future of our country. Of course, it is also in my best interest if you do alienate them. So, by all means, do nothing.

Vote Democratic! The ass you save may be your own.

This could be dangerous

we're thinking WAY too much alike today!

Happy weekend, dear.



It's kind of hard to call me out for drama when y'all frontpaged this nonsense and tried to turn a Twitter entry into a fullblown political scandal representing the opinion of all North Carolina Republicans towards young voters.

But speaking of damage control... I think the President might need to do some right about now. Really? A Special Olympics joke? Maybe I should put this on my blog and tell people to call you to complain.


with some of the mess you post on your blog. A blog that doesn't allow comments to offer correction and perspective...oh...my....

You complaining about anything we write is a joke. At least you get to trot over here at your leisure and offer your unedited, uncensored perspective.

You're welcome, btw. ;)

Vote Democratic! The ass you save may be your own.

Oh..Brent...one more thing

I mean that whole, "your welcome" thing both ways. The sincere way - you are welcome to post here. The smartarse way - you're welcome for the opportunity to post here.

I mean...I may be a smartass, but I'm a sincere smartass.

Vote Democratic! The ass you save may be your own.

Who said anything about control?

Unless by that you mean "damage control?"



PS I didn't realize until now that you're here in a professional capacity. If that's the case, it would be nice if you said so, and included that information in your profile page. Transparency is our friend.

My bad, James

I introduced myself in one of my original comments but that was ancient times by now. Updated my profile to give you guys a warning that a professional Republican is lingering in your midst.


I appreciate it.
