Well, if this isn't a burgeoning political headache for the party of tolerance and inclusiveness, I don't know what is. An Arkansas Democratic gubernatorial candidate has filed two complaints against state organizations affiliated with the Democratic Party. She claims Arkansas Democrats snubbed her at a dinner by refusing to let her speak, and on a separate occasion, referred to her primary opponent as the next governor of Arkansas as she sat and listened.
From ABCs affiliate KATV:
Arkansas Democratic gubernatorial candidate Dr. Lynette Bryant has filed a complaint against the Democratic Party of Arkansas and the Saline County Democratic Party for "unfair treatment" against her candidacy.
So far, Bryant has filed the complaints with the NAACP and the Democratic National Committee. In the complaint, Bryant cites the denial of her request to speak at the upcoming Saline County Jefferson Jackson Dinner.
"Upon further conversation and restating my request to speak, Mr. (George 'Bucky') Ellis [Chairman of the Saline County Democratic Party] told me no, I could not Speak at the Saline County Jefferson Jackson Dinner again," writes Bryant.
Bryant also cites an instance where DPA Chair Vince Insalaco introduced Mike Ross, who is running against Bryant in the primary, as "the next governor of Arkansas" at an event that both candidates were attending.
Bryant concludes her complaint by asking the NAACP and the DNC to get involved in order to ensure a 'fair race.'
The Democratic Party of Arkansas (DPA) released a statement, which you can read here. The DPA claims they never endorse in primaries; but Dr. Bryants testimony is evidence she feels theyre not exactly being impartial, either. Of course, I assume her mistreatment has nothing to do with her race or gender, and everything to do with her own partys eagerness to nominate a candidate other than her. Still, its rather ironic that the political party that always accuses Republicans of racism and waging a war on women is reportedly slighting an African-American female candidate who has every right to participate in the political process.
Obviously, if she is asking the DNC and the NAACP to get involved this is no laughing matter. She feels as if the system is rigged against her. And thats wrong, no matter how you slice it.
Engaging in favoritism and shady campaign tactics is always indefensible. After all, Dr. Bryant should at least be afforded the right to make her pitch (and she will get that opportunity, we're told), even if the powers that be don't necessarily want to hear it.
She’s being ‘bossy’ !
They probably don’t like her because she is the bossy type.
So,. as a Democrat, Female candidate for anything other than dorm-mom, ....As Nancy Pelosi would say, "Embrace the Suck!"
She asks the NAACP to get involved.
That is about as close as she can get to playing the race card without actually accusing the opposition of being racist.
Her next steps might be to invite Sharpton and Jackson for some big city type shaking down.
The liberal War against (black) Women continues.
IF we had a Republican Party with any sense (we don’t) they would invite her to speak and listen to her jibberish and be polite to her. It would garner PR points which the RP is lacking at times.
Its not her turn.
A black guy and a redneck go into a pastry shop.
The black guy whisks three cookies into his pocket with lightning speed.
The baker doesn't notice.
The black guy says to the redneck:
"You see how clever we are ?
You rednecks can never beat that !"
The redneck says to the black guy:
"Watch this, any Redneck is smarter than a black dude, and I'll prove it to ya."
He says to the baker, "Give me a cookie, I'll show you a magic trick !"
The baker gives him the cookie, which redneck promptly eats.
Then he says to the baker: "Give me another cookie for my magic trick."
The baker is getting suspicious, but he gives it to him.
He eats this one too.
Then he says again: "Give me one more cookie..."
The baker is getting angry now, but gives him one anyway.
The Redneck eats this one too.
Now the baker is really mad, and he yells: "And where is your famous magic trick ?"
The redneck says, "Look in the black guys pocket !"
Bryant, who holds multiple degrees including an M.D., has spent the last several years working as a substitute teacher.
Dr. Lynette Bryant needs to sit down and STFU. The party she helped empower has treated her with the respect due one who would empower them.
And, well, life is hard when you are a black woman supporting woman hating racists.
She must’ve stepped out of line with “the Party” and had an individual thought. Can’t have that.
She is a medical doctor and works as substitute teacher? Something is wrong with that picture
WAR ON WOMEN - WAR ON WOMEN - WAR ON WOMEN - WAR ON WOMEN - WAR o..........etc etc etc........
Obviously, if she is asking the DNC and the NAACP to get involved this is no laughing matter. She feels as if the system is rigged against her. And thats wrong, no matter how you slice it.She's a whiny race-baiting race-hustling entitlement-pushing affirmative action success story -- and the DNC agrees with me.
