Posted on 07/02/2014 4:57:45 PM PDT by Whenifhow
A press call with Sen. Thad Cochran (R-Miss.) turned into a total disaster after someone dialed in and asked why its OK for the Republican to harvest black votes like black people harvesting cotton.
The bizarre call is the latest development in a controversial saga out of Mississippi where Cochran defeated tea party-backed Chris McDaniel in a recent GOP runoff election by reaching out to black voters and allegedly painting his opponent as a racist. The McDaniel camp is currently trying to call the results of the election into question.
Chaos reported erupted after freelance journalist Charles Johnson invited his Twitter followers to crash the call with him:

Say goodbye to this seat. I believe it will be a Democratic winner in November. Can you imagine that in Mississippi of all places?
I love it when leftists get punked
Does a recording exist? Cannot find it at link. Would be fun to hear.
No recording was posted on that page, but it may surface sometime.
Sounds like I’m here now but I’m there type of phone calls.... LOL.
>>Say goodbye to this seat. I believe it will be a Democratic winner in November. Can you imagine that in Mississippi of all places?
Yep. Cochrane threw away this seat in a panicky grab to keep his power. And after November, the GOP will blame the Conservatives for being extremist and not getting with the program.
This is what happens when you get in bed with rats to win an election.
And call members of your own base racists in doing so.
McConnell will go down, as well.
The GOPe may have lost this seat this time around.
Cochran could salvage some of his pride and honor if he announced his retirement right now, effective January.
Except when "rightists" get screwed by it. It may "feel" better but end up resulting worse.
Your link is dead, Jim.
GOPe don’t care if they lose this seat because if a conservative is running, they already consider it lost. This is going to be war, them against us. They’ll try to destroy Chris and will call in all their media buddies to blame the loss on him.
That being said, I’m not so sure Chris would lose. If he tells the people he’s fighting Washington insiders and that he’ll continue to fight for them once elected, I think he can do it. He will need to let the locals know how he’ll help them, get them out from under regulation whatever.
OMG! I remember that. Was it not dubbed the hostage call?
Ignore the media hype and strange analyses. Every conservative who excels is real strong about stopping the invasion of the US.
I don't think Cochran is capable of doing much of anything. The grab for power was done by the GOPe.
He was just borrowing the black laborers for one vote. Next time they’ll vote for their true masters.
The link doesn’t work - DANG!
That is why I came here in the first place. A great moment in time! LOL
Nice update in the comments:
- McDaniel team has now found 5000 illegal votes and they havent even looked at half the counties yet. Cochran won by 6700
- Evidence from text messages shows that Shaleem Omar, who works for the Cochran campaign and for Sen. Wickers office offered black pastors money if they went out and paid $15 to each person who voted for Cochran.
-Haley Barbours PAC was behind the racist robo-calls against McDaniel.
-Cochran and Barbour officials are trying to block the McDaniel camp from accessing voter rolls.
- The FBI has been contacted by the McDaniel camp in regards to voter fraud.
- FEC is investigating Barbours PAC
- McDaniel has filed a federal lawsuit.
You're right. I'd like to print up some posters with O's pic and the new imported illegals compounds. Under the pics it would simply say:
What the hell are they doing to us?
Unfortunately the sub-links within the page no longer connect.
An extreme version of the rule “when a Republican runs like he’s a Democrat, the Democrat always wins.”
(I didn't listen.....I just happened to find this link)
That’s it....and if you check the blaze article a sound file has been added to the post.
Goodbye to Mississippi, goodbye to the Senate.....
The ONLY thing that could save the Seante for GOP would be a roaring scandal of democrip senator(s) that the media —the enemy of we the people— would actually report near honestly. And since I don’t see the oligarchs allowing their media whoredom to do that. Adios to America of the Founders.
I think McConnell will go down. My wife and I live in KY and have voted for this backstabbing dirt bag since 1984, no more, we had decided this way before Mississippi. My parents are Goldwater conservatives, voted for him in 1964, they are sitting this one out and not voting for McConnell or Rogers the congressional pork Barron of KY.
I told my mother in law a life long conservative Republican about how the GOPE think of her as a conservative as racist and how they played the race card on their own and bought votes to keep one of their trashy liberals in power and about McConnell and the rest of the trashy GOPE were behind this with his $800K injection of cash. Her response, I can’t vote for him, but I can’t vote for Grimes I know her and she is a first rate idiot, guess I will be sitting this one out.
I hope we win the rest of our senate races, but I would take McConnell
out if I lived in KY by sitting that race out.
If Cochran is on the ballot, I am voting Travis Childers. Mainly out of spite
