While you smile, the socialists are passing laws to kill all white people.As we reported a couple weeks back in a liveblog none of you read, South Carolina Congressman Bob Inglis lost badly in his Republican primary. Now we know why. “Leading up to the election, he frequently challenged voters who questioned the president’s citizenship or patriotism. At one town hall meeting, he was jeered for saying that Beck, a Fox News Channel host, is a divisive fearmonger.” GOOD IDEA, EINSTEIN.

Yes, Bob Inglis quaintly hopes that party politicians can lead the Republican Party instead of talk radio hosts and Sarah Palin. And this pissed South Carolina voters off.

Rational discourse is a thing of the past, Bob Inglis, so get with the program. And your audacity to suggest the nation’s political parties should work to solve America’s problems instead of resorting to demagoguery is just plain offensive. Get out of our Congress.

There are other disgusting details in this story, if you can bear it. Inglis actually stayed true to his term-limit pledge the first time he was in Congress, for one. And then there’s this:

Inglis said he was shocked during the health care votes as he watched protesters jeering Rep. John Lewis, a Georgia Democrat who was beaten as a leading civil rights activist in the 1960s.

Inglis said he was too far away during the jeering incident to hear whether the protesters shouted racial epithets, as Lewis and other black lawmakers have claimed. But Inglis said the behavior was threatening and abusive.

“I caught him at the door and said, ‘John, I guess you’ve been here before,'” Inglis said.

How dare he talk to a Democrat?! That man is in another poltical party! And all this after those brave health care protestors stood up to that man!

We can’t wait until November. IMPEACH BOB INGLIS NOW. [AP]

    True, there’s no room for rational discourse in the GOP.

  • Mr Blifil

    Who cares what this loser thinks?

  • JMP

    Well, no wonder he lost if he contradicted people who claimed the President was a foreigner, just because it’s not true. This is the Republican party, Bob, and if the facts contradict what you want to believe, you go with what you wish to be the case, not the facts.

    So when South Carolina is laughed out of the Union, can we get T shirts printed up that say “Learn Inglis, Morans!”

    Public employee unions: “More retirement pay, sooner, for us!”
    Manufacturing unions: “More pay now, and no deductibles on lifetime health care!”
    Minorities: “More preferences for us!”

    These are my people, though. It’s still better than all war, all the time.

    How the hell did someone like that become a Republican?

    If he ever wants to be elected again as a Republican, he’ll need to move to a district where Glenn Beck U is not considered higher education.

    “I caught him at the door and said, ‘John, I guess you’ve been here before,’” Inglis said.

    Nice thinly-veiled runaway slave reference, Inglis — keep talking like that, and you’ll be back in the Republican Party’s good graces in no time!

  • Snarkalicious

    Bob Dole says what a dumbass. Even Bob Dole knows that if you want a political future, you keep that stuff under your hat until you’ve retired and are no longer (marginally) relevant.

    Love

    Obviously the voters realized that the guy is a moron and voted for Someone Else®.

    This gives me an idea. I’m going over to Firedoglake and say that maybe 2010 wasn’t the year for the public option after all and maybe we can add it in future legislation. Then see if I make it out alive.

  • Lionel Hutz Esq.

    It is just as Glen Beck foresaw: Any Republican that talks to a black man is clearly a closet Communist. I’m just surprised that we didn’t send Inglis back to Russia with the rest of the spies.

    Talk is cheap even if it loses you the primary. Did he actually vote for any Democratic-backed legislation? Or even to fend off a filibuster?

  • Brendan M.

    This is the nicest article about a Republican I’ve ever seen on Wonkette.

    Just whose side are you on, son?

  • SayItWithWookies

    It’s interesting times when a Gingrich Republican loses a primary because he’s a RINO. Of course I remember when fiscal conservatism used to mean a balanced budget and paying for things as you spent money. Oh wait — they talked about that, but the only real fiscal conservative was Bill Clinton. Who, now that I think of it, was villified by the Gingrich Republicans. So nevermind — he may decry the current Jacobinism in the GOP, but he’s just reaping his own whirlwind.

    Stuef and nonsense. It’s spelled beyer.

    Much like Robespeirre, mounting the guillotine and wondering how he became a victim of the Terro that he helped create.

  • JSDC007

    A year ago when Bob Inglis thought he could coast to victory in the primaries, he said nothing while C*ntagogue Sarah Palin blathered her endless lies. Or when Chuck Grassley, James DeMint and countless other GOP vampires repeated the same lies.

    Now that he has nothing to lose, he suddenly finds a pair.

    Poor Bob Inglis. Sometimes, having a spine is better than bending over. Now I bet he feels reallly dirty.

    But I still think he’s cute.

    [re=614762]JSDC007[/re]: I’m not ready to send him love letters and candy. Still, it’s possible that some republicans – even those who were part of the political ugliness of the Gingrich years – really are having their minds blown / changed as they’re faced by primary challengers and angry constituents who are increasingly scary and irrational. Part of it could be a sense of unease that the establishment guard in the GOP is changing, but seeing all that nuttery could make one question his core ideas, too, I’ll bet.

    A small group of smarmy old assholes surrounded by socialites who claim them to be wise as they swallow the stories from on high that reinforce the power of the State?

    [re=614870]Snarkalicious[/re]: What “on high” are you thinking of? The nonexistent gods?

    As to the main post, obviously Mr Inglis is an unobservant loser. For one thing, he should have corrected his name to “English”, or possibly “Gamecock”.

    Fuck. I’m outta snark. The guy is probably a douche in his own right (Contract on America and all), but this story just serves as another hint that I am going to live long enough to experience the failure of the American Experiment. I’m not yet to the point of looking forward to Alzheimer’s, but it’s getting less scary every day.

    Here’s a video that makes it easier to understand (1:15) the anti-Beck words spoken by Rep. Inglis at the Town Hall and if you follow it up with this clip from back further in the crowd (0:45), you’ll get an idea of why he probably lost and how brave he may have been.

    Oh, and for the sake of balance, here’s Beck’s response (3:15) which contains a snip from the first video.

  • Magister

    Here’s the anti-beck clip from Inglis’ “town hall” and if you follow it with another version taken from out in the crowd, it’s not too hard to understand why he may have lost.

    Though you do have to give him some credit for being a brave man.

  • BarackMyWorld

    No matter what gains are made in 2010 for Republicans, they’re just going to use them self-reinforce their bat-shit insanity, move to even more uncompromising right-wing positions, and then be lucky to get more than 150 electoral votes in 2012. And reaching 45% of the popular vote in 2012 when they nominate someone completely nuts is being generous.

    Haha….a Repuke trying to make sense. Best of luck with that in the primaries dickhead!
