Posted on 07/10/2014 11:47:14 AM PDT by cotton1706
New Hampshire GOP establishment has foisted Walt Havenstein on the state as the Republican candidate for Governor. But, typical of these establishment types, it seems that they have more contempt for people on their own side than they do for the real enemy; the Democrats. Havenstein, for instance, calls you Tea Partiers the disgusting name teabaggers. Not only that but he refuses to apologize for his slander.
Havenstein was recorded on video calling members of the Tea Party teabaggers at talk he gave a few years ago at the University of Marylands Robert H. Smith School of Business.
Now, one might note that this speech was a few years ago, sure. Maybe Havenstein has changed his mind, maybe he was just trying to be funny, maybe he really doesnt hate conservatives?
Well, Mr. NH Establishment was given a chance to repudiate his slanderous name-calling of conservatives just this week and guess what? Skip Murphy, the co-founder of the NH TEA Party Coalition and a well-known local political operative, confronted Havenstein at a campaign stop, and gave the candidate a chance to walk back his slanderous comments, but Havenstein refused to take it back.
So, once again we have a Republican Establishment Stooge who hates people on our own side more than he hates leftists. Walt Havenstein hates conservatives more than he hates those leftists destroying these United States of America.
Once again we see that the GOP establishment is out to eliminate conservatives from within their ranks. Once again we find that the GOP establishment thinks that YOU, my dear friends, are the enemy and that Democrats, liberals, leftists, communists, and socialists are more desirable than you and me.
Now tell me
why do we support the Republican Party, again?

Why is he a Homophobe using the term “teabagger”.....
If you are making fun of the tea party and are part of the establishment you can use Homophobic slurs against your political enemies...
I said no such thing!
I own to TEAbagger...
just don’t call me an old bag...
You can’t compare this dude to Brown .for NH or Mass, Brown is not bad. Those states are what they are. Brown never would use tea bagger.
This wipe is nothing but a crony capitalist moderate from the word go.
Must be scared ... of TEA
That Free State Project sure is having an effect.
FYI, teabagging is hardly an exclusively homosexual practice. In fact, given that straight people are 97% of the population, I’d say it’s far more widespread among hetero couples.
Is HE homosexual? I understand it is a term used by homosexuals.
It won’t be long before Tea Partier will be replaced with Christian and Jew. Can you feel the rage? We are a lawless society - not good.
Lol. Took me a sec...
And if you had a bad slip on a bike as a boy, you might have flow through tea bags ;)
My theory is that during the Great Depression (instigated and worsened by FDR and his socialist mob), the leftist DemonRATS of the South moved north in search of jobs. They brought their liberals ideas to New England and turned it from the GOP to the 'RAT side forever. The Southerners who remained in Dixie were those of solid Christian and Jewish values, naturally Conservative and pro-America. And, IMHO, that's why the South transformed from DemonRAT to Republican. The so-called "Southern Strategy" has been discredited as a leftist fabrication, thus I attribute the change to regional migration of Southern liberals to the north.
“you might have flow through tea bags ;”
Or Oolong or Green teabags!
“Troe da bum out!”
Don’t kid yourselves, I’m sure most of the Karl Rove Brigade calls us this in private. Most of them are just not daft enough to do it in front of a hot mic.
Even more widespread among heterosexual college fraternity members.
You may be on to something. Certainly plenty of southern blacks moved north, but there were whites migrating too. Here in Chicago, for decades there was a pocket of southern transplants in the Andersonville neighborhood, and you can still go to their local bar, where the Confederate flag is hanging on the wall, and Hank Williams Sr is on the jukebox.
Isn’the Kelly Ayotte from there too? It must be something that is in the water. Something that destroys principles.
People like these are contemptible and should not be allowed to hold office!
I would rather vote the Democrat in, than be destroyed internally by a self-serving traitorous maggot like this.
We saw Trevor Loudon at Conservative Forum of Silicon Valley on Tuesday night. He says the Tea Party is all the libs talk about which indicates we are making an impact. In this situation, you turn the heat UP not down.
Obama and his people will simply turn their mobs loose if and when he is impeached or otherwise forced to leave office due to all the scandals. One would think it makes sense to prepare for an increase in violent crime, knockout attacks, home invasions, harassment in workplaces, etc when this happens. Not if but when.
What we’re seeing is not new, only an extension of the culture battle that’s been simmering in this country since the late fifties. The Millenial crowd seems to think they and the world were invented yesterday but they are about to be shown that isn’t the case. There is one hell of a recession coming, necessary to wring out all this slop in the money supply. Someone of us actually remember what we learned in college.
I will never vote for another republican. If there’s an “r” after their name it means the support this guy and the Barbours and McConnells and Mccains and Grahams, etc.
So YOU say. Personally, I know nothing about the practice.
“Obama and his people will simply turn their mobs loose if and when he is impeached or otherwise forced to leave office due to all the scandals.”
I don’t think that will happen. Nobody has the votes or the nuts to do it, not when the next Presidential election is already in sight, they will just wait him out.
“There is one hell of a recession coming, necessary to wring out all this slop in the money supply.”
Yes, most likely. At the least, there will be another asset bubble bursting in a few years, for sure. We went right back to doing what caused the last one, so it doesn’t take psychic powers to figure out what happens next.
Missouri and Michigan used to be more important than California.
What happened to NH? Oh yeah, liberal refugees from the third world hell holes known as Mass and Vermont came accross the border.
No wonder the ‘Old Man in the Mountain’ fell off.
I know you like Brown for some reason but here is his record. He IS bad!
Brown - 2010 - 64% (Average) - 62% (CFG) - 74% (ACU) - 57% (FreedomWorks)
Brown - 2011 - 48% (Average) - 49% (CFG) - 50% (ACU) - 44% (FreedomWorks)
Brown - 2012 - 34% (Average) - 51% (CFG) - 36% (ACU) - 15% (FreedomWorks)
You so miss the point. I also don’t think you know anything about the Massachusetts electorate. The average Mass voter would probably get about a 5 to 10% rating from those same organizations.
You also miss something else: our problem is not Brown. Our problem is Grahams from SC, Cornyn from Texas, Chambliss from GA, Cochran from Mississippi, etc. It’s the red state moderates and the blue state commies who kill us, not the blue state moderates. REALITY DUDE
Why do they think it’s funny to mock homosexuals? Should’t the homosexuals be outraged?
“You so miss the point. I also dont think you know anything about the Massachusetts electorate. The average Mass voter would probably get about a 5 to 10% rating from those same organizations.”
Hellllloooooo! I live in Massachusetts! I know a hell of a lot more about the MA electorate than you do. And I know what a scheming, backstabbing scumbag Brown is. Shaheen can be defeated, but not by a worthless moderate like Brown. He’ll lose again just like he did in 2012. But the Establishment won’t have anybody else!
I know you live in Mass, but you continue to deny the reality that is all around you. I don’t need to live in Mass to know what the political climate is, For decades, it has been one of the most liberal state in the nation with who they vote for - cycle after cycle after cycle.
And say what you want about Brown, I doubt you can name me a single winner of a single Mass election in your lifetime (statewide) who is as conservative as Brown is. Certainly not Mitt. And if you somehow find one as conservative as Brown, it would be interesting to see if they won re election? Which I doubt.
Mass is what it is.
Well, to each his own. But in any event, there is nothing about it that would render it unavailable to hetero couples.
Yeah, and that’s why you don’t take a loser from Massachusetts and run him against an incumbent democrat in New Hampshire. That’s my point. HE WILL NOT WIN. It’s a lost opportunity.
Brown won in 2010 by running as a conservative. And he had all our support and money, etc. He ran as a moderate and lost. The same will happen in New Hampshire. I hear him on the radio here at least once a weak. He’s talking all middle of the road crap. He’s NOT going to defeat Shaheen that way. But the RNC and the NRSC love a good moderate.
Not that i would Ever advocate for it but i sure wouldn’t be sad to see a few of these a holes who say this tea bag bull to get serious butt whoopings
Yes, he ran as a moderate and lost. I criticized him in my book for just that. Made some sport of it actually. However, in fairness - that was a general election with a massive liberal turn out.
He did run as a conservative to win, and my entire American Thinker piece was read, word for word, by Rush that day - as the main analysis of Brown’s win. Here’s the link, you’ll like the article:
HOWEVER, that was a special election, and a great night for us. Likely not something that could be duplicated in Mass again. Not with a popular liberal President on the ballot.
And one more time: has Mass ever elected anyone as conservative as Brown (even tho he’s not that conservative) in a statewide election in the last say 50 years????
“And one more time: has Mass ever elected anyone as conservative as Brown (even tho hes not that conservative) in a statewide election in the last say 50 years????”
Not that I can think of. We had a pretty conservative treasurer that came in with Weld in ‘90. All other statewide office were won by the same types, moderates like Brown. Had Weld been elected to the senate he would have been about the same. I think Paul Cellucci would have been more conservative than Brown if he ran.
But I have no argument with you on only moderates winning in MA. This argument started with you saying that Brown wasn’t bad, and in relation to his running in New Hampshire. And I don’t get why you’re defending him. Do you actually think he’s going to win there, that he’s the best candidate the republicans could find, that he’s the best of the three running??
Let me give you a little insight into how I think: I rarely am consumed with people .ie Brown, etc. To me, ideas are far more important - and the idea here is that Brown is the best election winner I can ever remember in Mass, period. The best ever in Mass. Therefore, it’s not about Brown per se as much as it is about the idea that anyone other than a liberal or a moderate is going to win in Mass. It has nothing to do with “defending Brown.”
Put people aside for a second, and think about the bigger picture.
My comments had nothing to do with whether he will win or not in NH. I would suspect he will not, but NH is an oddball little state, and I have not been following that race. I followed Brown V Coakley intensely. I followed Brown V Warren as well.
It was an amazing election, having lived through it. The only other ones that even came close were when Romney won by 10 points by 9:30 when it was predicted it was going to be a long night, and 1990 when the Republicans swept most of the statewide offices after the odious Dukakis. But for a republican to take Ted Kennedy’s seat!! That was amazing. The left was shocked.
And then Brown blew it. Had he run down the middle road between moderation and conservatism, we would have all been ok with that. We knew what his record was like in the state legislature. He could have been a senator pretty much indefinitely once reelected.
But instead he chose to run the middle road between moderation and liberalism, getting worse as he went along, never even throwing us a bone. And so he lost the people who elected him.
I think both he and Mitt’s plan (they had the same types of moderate Boston advisors) was to win election without a large conservative contingent, so they wouldn’t owe us anything. They figured enough of us would go along to help them win (always vote for that “r”). But they miscalculated, and they lost. We’d had enough. I voted for Romney but blanked Brown. Romney overwhelmingly won independents but lost the conservatives.
I can’t stand either man anymore.
I agree Brown might have blown it, and I was highly critical of his campaign. However, Obama won by 23% in Massachusetts, and there is no way that any Republican over comes that. Brown lost by 7.5%. I think he would have maintained a higher level of respect had he at least gone down swinging the way he did in the special election.
The presidential year certainly added to it. Bill Weld lost the senate race in 1996 when two years before he had been reelected governor by the same constituency with 70% of the vote.
What do you think of the point I made in post #17? When I think of the great Patriots that came from Massachusetts (Calvin Coolige rose to prominence there and, of course Charles Sumner), it's appalling that the state has, as a whole, become so leftist.
I think that Southern DemonRATS who were left jobless during the FDR era moved into your state and drove it leftward. The South was impoverished due to Roosevelt's anti-business policies. Although the north suffered during his regime, there were enough job opportunities that leftist Southerners migrated north. The upside is that Dixie became Conservative as the DemonRATS fled but their presence led to the evolution of New England into liberalism. Is that a plausible theory to you?
The liberal universities did the most damage here. But politically, things were controlled by the Kennedy machine, especially Ted. He knew exactly what levers to pull an when. He and the machine halted the advance of any republican who may be a threat in the future, cementing that stranglehold. And this style and attitude spread to the different states. It was all the intellectual New Dealers the colleges produced combined with shrewd politics that turned New England.
It was a suicide...he looked down on the Interstate from his lofty perch, saw all the Mass and NY plates, and threw himself down to his doom.
Thanks for the quick and very thorough response. It's a shame that what was once the cornerstone of Our Republic has descended into a reliably liberal region. On the other hand, the South is now free of the past's vile leftwing DemonRATS such as Huey Long and Boss Crump. The region that I'm proud to call home is typified by Patriots including Senator Ted Cruz, Senator Tim Scott, Congressman Louie Gohmert and many others.
Just as telling in terms of how the regions have changed in less than a century is this map, illustrating the rise of the New Solid South. What were once slave states are now the home of liberty, free from the thuggish oppression of forced unionism:
