How Dare This ‘Out-Of-Bounds’ Reporter Ask Jesse Kelly About His White Supremacist Pals? (Video)

Not at all a terrifying young fascistThe last time we said ‘hey’ to young Jesse Kelly, he was running for Miss Teen USA, and it went a little something like this: Healthcare, right or privilege?

My belief system is this. The health care for anybody but especially for our nation. The highest quality and lowest cost can only be delivered without the government. What I believe is that all things we drive, we do, health care, anything, is a privilege to some extent. Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, those are inalienable rights endowed by your creator. If you’re claiming a right, if you’re going to say anything’s a right, if you’re going to say you have a right to a cell phone, then who has the responsibility to pay for it? That’s what I believe.

Good times! But now, faced with outrageously “out-of-bounds” questions about ALIPAC, who are these nice neo-Nazis and white supremacists who keep endorsing him for Gabby Giffords’s old seat, he has learned a thing or two about how to stay on script, and stay on script, and stay on script. That was TWO YEARS AGO (and last week). And palling around with terrorists only counts when it is Bill Ayers and black guys. Anyway, have some smirking robot.

Jesse Kelly, why do you keep accepting endorsements from neo-Nazis and white supremacists?

We feel like we have heard this somewhere before? But honestly, it’s the only way a true hero should respond when faced with The Enemy that is a free and lamestream press.

    I can't figure out why that black woman is laughing that a white supremacist organization endorsed her candidate. I guess even the black people are crazy in AZ.

      • christianmaxwell

        Hahaha. That episode was just on last week. Very nice. On a more serious note, there are 1-2% of black voters that have had a big cup of the Republican Kool-Aid and gone back for seconds: Michael Steele, Clarence Thomas, and apparently the woman in this video.

    NPR interviewed one of his supporters this morning. By the sound of her voice I reckon she looked a lot like the heavy-set North Carolina woman that graced Wonkette earlier today. She really hated that Gabby got shot and all, but gosh, Giffords shoulda resigned from Congress just as soon as the bullet went in her head.

    Nice people this Kelly fella pals around with.

    Oh, so that means you'll work to put a stop to the warmongering over Iran (which is a key driver of the recent gas price increases)? You'll be unlike the 2010 Reeps who said they would focus like a laser on jobs, only to turn around and go after those sluts who want birth control? And I take it you'll stand against the idea that some of your Reeps have to tax the poors even more by imposing an income tax on them when they have too little income to tax and already pay up in payroll, sales, gas taxes and the like?

    That reporter can officially, legitimately lead his story with "Candidate Repeatedly Refuses to Disavow White Supremacist Supporters". Yuk it up, dingbat. You won't think you're so cute and clever when people start making the entirely reasonable assumption that you're A-OK with the nazis.

  • http://www.wonkette.com/ FlownOver

    Note to reporters – The correct form of coverage of this assholery is: "When given the opportunity to comment, ___________ repeatedly refused to answer any questions about _________________."

    Pretty soon the refusal to answer becomes the issue, and if his opponents can't take advantage of that gigantic opening they don't deserve the office.

  • Chichikovobarb

    Well, well. Mr. Kelly has committed a few words from the Declaration of Independence to memory, though I'm not ruling out that he wrote them on his hand. Just think how much it would expand his world if he could hold more than 10 words in his head at once:

    We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–

    Hmmm…. "among these are" eh? So those aren't the only ones, just the ones he chooses to mention. Let's go on:

    That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness

    Hmmm…. "Right of the People" to form governments that "seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness…."

    I wonder who I'll trust. This cementhead, or the author of the Declaration, who was said to be a smart guy.
