  • MSNBC Guest: Hillary ‘Will Die A Death Of A Thousand Cuts’ [VIDEO]

    Former SC Democratic party chair Dick Harpootlian told MSNBC’s Steve Kornacki Sunday Vice President Joe Biden’s consideration of a presidential run actually gives Democrats the best chance of retaining the White House in 2016. Harpootlian said Hillary Clinton’s track record will cause her and the Democrats to “die a death of a thousand cuts,” yet Biden is “an inspirational figure” that voters can rally around. HARPOOTLIAN: I think Hillary comes into the race, as she did in ’08 with all kinds of baggage… There’s going to be distractions, we saw just this week with the Wall Street Journal about payments...

    COLUMBIA, S.C. – South Carolina Democratic Chairman Dick Harpootlian, imploring party activists Friday night to defeat this state’s Indian-American governor, predicted next year’s Democratic standard-bearer would “send Nikki Haley back to wherever the hell she came from.” Haley was raised in South Carolina and attended college here, but her parents were Sikh immigrants. Harpootlian, a longtime Democratic figure who has a history of using harsh rhetoric, made the comments at the party’s Jefferson-Jackson dinner just moments before Vice-President Joe Biden took the stage. Asked what he meant by comment, Harpootlian wrote in an email: “Lexington County.” Before being elected governor...

    On Election Day in South Carolina, as Republican Mark Sanford seeks to regain his old congressional seat, Mika Brzezinski did her best to stop Joe Scarborough from mentioning an ugly slur that the Chairman of the state's Democratic party had made against Republican Governor Nikki Haley. SC Dem Chairman Dick Harpootlian was caught in controversy this week as he pledged to send Haley--daughter of Indian immigrants--"back to wherever the hell she came from.” According to the Morning Joe panel, Harpootlian has apologized for that remark. But Harpootlian has never apologized for his 2012 remark, comparing Haley with Adolf Hitler's mistress...
  • So. Carolina Dem Chair: Send Nikki Haley ‘Back To Wherever The Hell She Came From’

    he latest insensitive and arguably racist public utterance coming from the supposed party of tolerance and compassion comes from a Democrat in South Carolina. But not just any Democrat. This one is Dick Harpootlian, the Chairman of the South Carolina Democratic Party. Harpootlian has a history of making outrageously offensive public remarks about South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley, yet he remained as party chairman until (according to Politico) his term ended on Saturday. Mediaite, Politico, and almost no one else in the establishment press has reported that Harpootlian, speaking at a Jefferson-Jackson dinner Friday night just before Vice President Joe...

    Chris Moody @Chris_Moody South Carolina Dem Party Chairman says he hopes candidate Vince Sheheen will send "Nikki Haley back to wherever the hell she came from." 6:43 PM - 3 May 2013 35 Retweets 3 favorites The last time we heard from South Carolina Democratic chairman Dick Harpootlian, he was drawing comparisons between Republican Gov. Nikki Haley and Adolf Hitler’s mistress, Eva Braun. That was last September, and something tells us Harpootlian hasn’t spent the past several months in charm school. At a Democrat party dinner tonight attended by Vice President Joe Biden, Harpootlian rallied his troops to send Haley...

    Outrage After Democrats Insult Nikki Haley's Indian Heritage Saying They'll Send The Republican Gov. 'Back To Wherever The Hell She Came From' 3 May 2013 Conservatives are outraged after a Democrat in South Carolina allegedly insulted Republican Gov.

The state's Democratic Party Chairman, Dick Harpootlian, is believed to have said the party will take on the Conservative in the next gubernatorial race and send 'Nikki Haley back to wherever the hell she came from.' Gov. Haley was born in the U.S. but her parents are from India. Read...

    SC Attorney General's Race Heats Up Again Within the last two weeks, the tone of the Republican race for Attorney General has gotten quite nasty. With so many allegations being made about almost everyone in the race, we thought we'd present some of the information we'd discovered in the last week or two. In the Charleston Post amp; Courier last week, Jon Ozmint banked on Republican hatred of SC Democratic Party Chairman Dick Harpootlian aiding his campaign by attacking him instead of any of his opponents. According to the 3/5/02 story, Ozmint called Harpootlian quot;the Prince of Darknessquot; and quot;the...
