Skip to comments.Senate Republicans paid for Mississippi attack ads painting tea partiers as racist: report
Posted on 07/16/2014 10:35:11 AM PDT by Sybeck1
Mississippi attack ads that painted conservative Republicans and tea partiers as racists were funded by Senate Republicans, RedState editor-in-chief Erick Erickson has confirmed.
Advertisements by All Citizens for Mississippi, which attacked state Sen. Chris McDaniel and painted conservatives as racists, were partly funded by Sens. Mitch McConnell, John Cornyn, Rob Portman, Bob Corker and Roy Blunt, RedState reported.
According to documents filed with the Federal Elections Commission, All Citizens for Mississippi received funding from a Haley Barbour-backed group called Mississippi Conservatives.

they are just itching for the tea party to split off and become a third party ain’t they?
I am happy to see the truth gaining a little traction.
But they’d appreciate you voting for them in their election. Thank you kindly.
And that’s why Conservatives should not give cash to the GOP
The GOP continues to dig their own grave. Good riddance RINOs!
Lamar Alexander contributed to that MS incumbent also.
What the hell is wrong with these nimrods? Do they *want* the GOP base to stay home, thus keeping the Senate under Dingy Harry’s thumb? It sure seems like they do.
I find it very hard to believe the Republican party thinks stifling those who disagree with the Left the most, is the road to success in putting down the Left in our nation.
Therefore I have to accept that the Republican party supports the Left in the United States.
We have been betrayed.
We live in a one party nation.
I SO hope they do, starting in 2016.
It seems that they like being the minority party, so they can act like the underdog while caving to the dems, whining and crying about “trying” and still have all those wonderful perks. So full of principle... *gag*
I want no part in this kind of “party”. Ick.
I have yet to hear any current “conservative” candidate running for a federal office remind voters of the vote about God the democrat (in name only) held at their 2012 convention.
I am thisclose to monetarily supporting the candidacies of the democrat challengers in MS and KY for this. Eff the GOPe.
They’ll still describe themselves as Conservative in their ads, campaign letters and literature.
Heat up the tar kettle.
They sure will.
Then it’s back to rope-a-doping...
“We live in a one party nation.”
This is becoming more apparent every day now.
It’s time to purge these assclowns from the once proud Republican party, and replace them with principled conservatives who still believe in principals championed by our founding documents.
In a more civilized time, they would be frog marched out of their offices and horsewhipped.
A third party consisting of conservatives is doomed from the get go, given the entrenched nature of our ruling elite, and their media lapdogs.
Then, they have the nerve to ask me to donate. No way Jose.
It’s sad that the people of MS know so little; this could have all been avoided. Cochran clearly is unsuited for his position.
Or votes. Why would you vote for trash that calls you racists and radicals?
At times I pulled straight R tickets, those days have been long gone a since 1992 and the GOPE has no one to blame but themselves.
I am sure the GOPE trash apologist will be along soon to remind us how much they love us and how not voting for their liberal is bad and how we are all in one big tent full of love and happiness, until they do a smack down on conservatives-—again.
I essentially agree with you, but you’ve just seen how difficult it will be to replace GOPe Republicans with U.S. Loyalist Republicans.
What has Boehner done except cow tow to Obama since January 5th, 2011?
Yep he’s only been speaker for 3.5 years. Seems like 50.
This is not news.
Yet the Republibots here and elsewhere will insist (even harder!) that we must support these folks.
From the Red State article:
Mississippi Conservatives, in turn, was funded in part by Sally Bradshaw of the RNCs Growth and Opportunity Project, former RNC Chairman and Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour, the United States Chamber of Commerce, and the political action committees created for Senators Mitch McConnell ($50,000), John Cornyn ($50,000), Rob Portman ($25,000), Bob Corker ($25,000), and Roy Blunt ($5,000).
But, based on that quote above, even donating direct to the candidate may be hazardous.
“What the hell is wrong with these nimrods? Do they *want* the GOP base to stay home, thus keeping the Senate under Dingy Harrys thumb? It sure seems like they do.”
In a manner of speaking, they do. They would rather see the Senate stay in RAT hands if it means that they don’t give up any of “their seats” to the Tea Party. They have clearly put maintaining control of the GOLP ahead of replacing any RATs.
Funded by the usual suspects - Sens. Mitch McConnell, John Cornyn, Rob Portman, Bob Corker and Roy Blunt, RedState reported.
Invade their FB page
Can Mississippi Conservatives be sued for false advertising?
The Rino’s win either way. If they gain the Senate or lose the Senate.
The only way they really lose is if they are individually voted out of office. That should tell you where conservatives need to continue to focus our laser beam.
Every pol lives with the gut wrenching fear that the next election will reveal him to be a time serving piece of sh@t that has done nothing to serve the people whom he was elected to represent.
It is up to us, the voter, to open our collective mouths and cry foul. RINOS win because WE elect them.
Of course they want the current base gone. The base doesn’t represent their values.
In some of these ads they refer to McDaniel as the “tea party” candidate. Can you run political ads where you lie about what actual party the person is in? Can you run ads saying McCain is the “Allah Ackbar Party” candidate? Or Pelosi is the “abducted by aliens party” candidate?
A guy in my area who claims to be a conservative and has run as one in the past, Charlie Gerow, told talk show host Gary Sutton on WSBA Radio this week that we need to trust John Cornyn on immigration because he was the “chief law enforcement officer” of Texas.
Cornyn is part of the crooked GOP Senate leadership that stooped to this new low of going Democrat to win an election.
How can John Cornyn be trusted on immigration or any other issue?????
Better yet, they would really appreciate your contribution.
I told them to.......in no uncertain terms.
They don’t want the Tea Party to gain any momentum.
They think they can slide in and keep their cushy job with help from democrats.
The last time I gave was when Sarah Palin was put on the ticket. Since then, I give to candidates and not the GOP. They keep sending me requests for money and I keep sending them back with not-so-subtle hints on what they could do with their requests. I haven’t received one in a while, but if I do a copy of this RedState article is going back with it.
Methinks the "We'll call you racist because we know we can count on your vote anyway" crowd will be getting a HUGE wake-up call in the near future.
I sent my senator, Rob Portman, a letter expressing my disappointment in him. He used to be my congressman, in the very conservative Ohio 2d, and at that time he was a “very conservative” representative of the 2d district.
It’s a revelation to see his transformation after being elevated by the GOP-E to budget director under Bush. He’s not the same man...if he ever was — and that part is discouraging.
The EXEMPT Princes:
"We hate all conservatives.
And backstab when we can
... with their own money."
F U GOPe!
They should be careful what they wish for.
Probably the one pro-tea party story the media might follow.
“And thats why Conservatives should not give cash to the GOP”
Haven’t in years.
