Virginia Republican Party executive director Shaun Kenney was a no show to conservative host Laura Ingrahams radio program Thursday.
Ingraham was prepared to question Kenney about his statements that conservatives who oppose amnesty are afraid of The Other and that nativists should be driven out of the Republican party. Kenney made the statements in an office meeting that included former SEIU secretary-treasurer Eliseo Medina, according to video footage published Tuesday by The Daily Caller, and on his personal blog.
And I think that we understand too that theres a lot of people that are afraid, of you. Not for any reason that they ought to be but because youre just not somebody, youre just not people that theyve ever had an opportunity to sit down and encounter, to talk to A lot of people concern themselves with the Other, and its not a comfortable thing to have dialogue, and its not a comfortable thing to have that encounter with the Other, Kenney said on the issue of immigration reform, according to the video.
Kenney also added that neither party should support immigration reform simply for vote-harvesting purposes, though SEIU official Eliseo Medina, present at the meeting with Kenney, previously pitched immigration reform in a speech by stating that it would help Democratic chances.
The nativists have no home in the modern Republican Party, Kenney wrote in a February blog post on his website BearingDrift.com. They have no place in the history of a Free America
They deserve nothing more than a footnote to the ignorance that liberty rightly stamps out
Conservatives are smarter than this, and America deserve better than nativist hate. Drive em out, ladies and gentlemen. Generations are watching.

Tell Laura he’ll be there and then no show
The guy would not be given an important position in the VA GOP without the blessing of Eric Cantor and Gillespie.
Can’t the Virginia Republicans get rid of Party executive director Shaun Kenney who is very clearly nothing more than a George Soros / Eric Cantor operative?
...and, by the way Virginians, give NOTHING to the Virginia Republican Party...give your donations and time to Tea Party candidates and true conservative organizations.
Why would the Virginia Republican Establishment, who pimped for Romney last go-around, not circle the wagons for Kenney?
Boy, voting Republican “No matter what” is a fantastic and swell idea. Lets all make sure his mindset propagates. For the children...
Someone needs to get those two on the record whether they agree with the nitwit Kenney's remarks.
