We’ll Have to Forgive Robert Brown

As we noted earlier, Robert Brown, who now amounts to the ranking Democrat in Georgia, is accused of claiming the GOP is akin to the KKK. Specifically, Brown notes that Democratic party switchers need to save their white sheets to get under for midnight meetings.

Given what we know and can surmise of Brown, he might just be confused having not recently, if at ever, slipped between any sheets for anything other than sleeping.

He might just be jealous.

    Erick,

    What do you mean by this line:

    “Given what we know and can surmise of Brown, he might just be confused having not recently, if at ever, slipped between any sheets for anything other than sleeping.”

    It can be interpreted several ways (and none are good) and I’m wondering how the politically correct executives at CNN are interpreting this line.

    Didn’t another on-air pundit get booted recently for less?

    This whole thing just needs to be dropped. Why would the Democrat want you to drop it?

    Because Robert Brown is and always will be a useless moron. This is nothing new. He’s obscenely useless.

    In my few face-to-face interactions with him, he’s smug, standoffish, and could care less about what anyone has to say unless it comes from his mouth. He’s leading nobody, as evidenced by the fact that I don’t think he recruited a single State Senate candidate in 2010. I sure as hell don’t respect him, nor do I really like him, nor do I think he does much of a good job at much of anything.

    So there, I said it. Let it go, because nobody here likes Robert Brown. And if you do, you haven’t met him.

    @American Delight – please don’t forget that most of those former KKK Democrats are now converted into RINO Republicans…..and they rule this state!

      When I saw that comment from American Delight I immediately knew someone would respond as Samuel did. I think it would be prudent of southern conservatives to not always bring that up as it is a specious argument at best. With that said however, this statement from Samuel-

      “please don’t forget that most of those former KKK Democrats are now converted into RINO Republicans” –

      is absolutely false. Most of those KKK Democrats from the ’50s or even into the ’60s are DEAD! Or at least not politically active sitting in a Rest Home for Racists in White Podunk. It is true however that the demographic group that used to be conservative democrats are now republicans. Calling everyone a racist because of a disagreement in policy does not bode well for what is sure to be a “raucous” legislative session.

    • Yep, it’s those Terrible Republicans who are in their spry one-hundred-and-teens that are responsible.

      Or are you insinuating that the Klan has been an active force recently?

    there is not much difference in this comment and the ‘ghetto grandmother’ reference used by our next governor while speaking in cherokee county to an all white gop group. racism persists on both sides and will become more noticeable as the major parties split along racial lines here in ga.

    i say get over it, time to address 10%+ unemployment, over-paid government workers, water wars and so many other critical issues.

    It has occurred to me that there is no one in Dem hierarchy who can persuade or make Brown apologize, genuinely or not. Not like in the good days when Gov Zell or Roy or LG Pierre could get on the phone and tell him “for the good of the party…”

    You can make a good argument Kasim Reed is the most powerful Dem in the state but a Macon Senator is not going to take an admonishment from an Atlanta Mayor who is 20, 30 years his junior.

    Brown is it. The most powerful Dem in state government. So stark, so scary.

    The KKK was a factor 50 or 100 years ago, today it’s at best a fringe element. Even if a father or grandfather were involved, it’s just plain wrong and insulting to attempt to tar the current generation of white Georgians with that brush. It’s akin to telling a German under age 80 to go put on a Nazi armband.

    • Dagny says:

      We will always have that label because it’s an easy way out of every issue. Without it the liberals have to use fact and logics; and we know that’s not going to happen. 🙂

    This thread typifies the political discourse today. If Brown really said that about the KKK, he’s no better than Rush or Beck or any of that ilk. But to respond by calling into question Brown’s sexuality is just childish. Doesn’t make sense. Kind of like those undereducated pundits who called Pres. Obama both a facist AND a communist, as if the two were the same. Makes you wonder what the Spanish Civil War was all about (not to mention Hitler’s misunderstanding with Stalin).

    • But to respond by calling into question Brown’s sexuality is just childish.

      No matter how I twist it, I can’t get Brown’s “sexuality” out of Erick’s post. Though the comments are pretty vague, it sounds more like he’s saying Brown is celibate. So, are you basing your interpretation of Erick’s comments on rumors?

    When I was a child in middle Georgia, Democrats like Lester Maddox and George Wallace were popular names in the news. I asked my father, a country doctor, why he chose to be a Republican. His reply was to the effect that “Our family doesn’t choose racism. Democrats believe of the racial superiority of whites and do not want whites to associate with blacks. We don’t believe that. We believe that all men should be treated equally regardless of their skin color and that no skin color is any better than another. If you’ve been in surgery and smelled people on the inside as many times as I have, we all smell equally horrible.”

    I guess everyone except maybe Mr. Brown, Ms. Sheila Jackson-Lee and similar black racists already know this – along with the fact that Dr. King, Harriett Tubman, Frederick Douglass, etc, etc. were all Registered Republicans – but the Ku Klux Klan was established by the Democratic Party.

    from the link below:
    “… How did the Ku Klux Klan re-emerge in the 20th century? For that, the Democratic Party is to blame.

    It was a racist Democrat President, Woodrow Wilson, who premiered Birth of a Nation in the White House. That racist movie was based on a racist book written by one of Wilson’s racist friends from college. In 1915, the movie spawned the modern-day Klan, with its burning crosses and white sheets.

    Inspired by the movie, some Georgia Democrats revived the Klan. Soon, the Ku Klux Klan again became a powerful force within the Democratic Party. The KKK so dominated the 1924 Democratic Convention that Republicans, speaking truth to power, called it the Klanbake. In the 1930s, a Democrat President, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, appointed a Klansman, Senator Hugo Black (D-AL), to the U.S. Supreme Court. In the 1950s, the Klansmen against whom the civil rights movement struggled were Democrats. The notorious police commissioner Bull Connor, who attacked African-Americans with dogs and clubs and fire hoses, was both a Klansman and the Democratic Party’s National Committeeman for Alabama. Starting in the 1980s, the Democratic Party elevated a recruiter for the Ku Klux Klan, Senator Robert Byrd (D-WV), to third-in-line for the presidency.

    The Republican Party has been a resolute enemy of the Ku Klux Klan.”
