  •  Update: NCGOP threw Yelton under the bus (14+ / 0-)

    and added this:

    “I would like to make it very clear that Mr. Yelton does not speak for either the Buncombe County Republican Party or the North Carolina Republican Party. And contrary to reports, Mr. Yelton is not a member of the NCGOP Executive Committee.
    Okay, I now believe he is not a member of the E.C.  but don't believe he doesn't speak for the NCGOP.

    •  Well, he doesn't speak for them NOW! (7+ / 0-)

      Though I have to wonder what Mr. Yelton's present position with the Party might be: if he had confined his remarks to the private confines of whatever Good-Ole-Boy meets-ups the NC GOP runs itself with, rather than letting this racist crap embarassment get broadcast in public....

      •  He doesn't speak for them (10+ / 0-)

        But he is very much one of them. He is just more blunt about what the rest of them believe.

        You know I laughed at that Daily Show but about repressing Republican voters, but in all seriousness, our side is not in the business of keeping white evangelicals away from the polls. We don't sit around trying to figure out how to cross-reference Duck Dynasty mailing lists with voter rolls to disenfranchise rural white southern crackers. It's really astounding that they are so blatant about restricting the black vote, or the student vote for that matter.

          if you haven’t seen it,  here’s the segment from daily show.  And Aasif Mandvi, the interviewer, eventually gets the guy to admit that the ultimate target of their voter suppression is  all Democratic voters....

          "the law is goin’ to kick the Democrats in the butt”

          Felton is a racist, ignorant, tool of the Republican Party. And he admitted it out loud. That’s why they had to fire him. Because he told the truth.

          I for one do not believe that the “moderate” Republicans in charge of the party are not fully aware and endorse this ugliness at the fringes.
