Ex-GOP official goes bonkers after court cites his ‘Daily Show’ remarks to kill NC voter ID law

Published

on

Former North Carolina Republican official Don Yelton is back in the news again for all the wrong reasons.

Yelton was fired from his job way back in 2013 after he told The Daily Show that his state’s new voter ID law would hurt Democratic voters. Specifically, he said that if the law “hurts a bunch of lazy blacks that want the government to give them everything, so be it.”

An appeals court last week found that the voter ID law was indeed designed to be discriminatory and it even cited Yelton’s remarks to The Daily Show as part of its case for striking down the law.

Yelton was furious about this, and over the weekend he went on an unhinged rant against the ruling on his Facebook page. In particular, Yelton was angry that Buncombe County GOP Chairman Nathan West once again trashed him for being a racist.

“Well the Republicans again show their stupidity,” Yelton fumed. “Frankly Nathan I would keep my mouth shut unless you DON NOT BELIEVE IN FREEDOM OF SPEACH (SIC) which it seems that you don’t. Not only that how is you money spending going? Now the real proof is that the Court uses a comedy show and a cut and pasted clip to prove a case. Think that if the party gives a shit they would ask me what I said in its complete sentence. It would show exactly what I said. NATHAN YOU BETTER be more concerned about the total take over of this county by the progressives. This also shows the justice system totally corrupt where are your comments on that.”

West had said Yelton was “like a chronic case of hemorrhoids: a real pain in the ass that you can never seem to get rid of.”

In another Facebook post, Yelton attacked local North Carolina media outlets:

“No need to add to or take away. When our courts use the Daily comedy show fir a ruling and the Buncombe County Republican Chair doesn’t see the danger there and the media both WLOS and WWNC dont address that fact first we are naked for media here in Buncombe County. They don’t care either. If Hillary gets elected THEY WILL BE CONTROLLED. (SIC)”

Fox News is so obsessed with Ocasio-Cortez they said her name three times as much as CNN or MSNBC

Published

on

It's clear that Fox News and other right-wing reporters are trying to create boogymen in Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. A new analysis by CNN media reporter Brian Stelter, revealed that the conservative network has said Ocasio-Cortez's name more than CNN and MSNBC combined.

"First, Ocasio-Cortez and her "Squad" mate Ilhan Omar have been talked about a lot more on Fox than on other cable news channels this year," Stelter wrote. "Second, the freshmen have been getting more attention on cable than seasoned leaders of the Democratic Party."

Congress should ask Mueller these specific questions about Trump’s involvement with Russia: Conservative columnist

Published

on

Conservative Never-Trump columnist Jennifer Rubin outlined the essential questions that Democrats should ask special counsel Robert Mueller in an op-ed for the Washington Post.

"Rather than engage in the normal scattershot questioning punctuated by speechifying, the House Judiciary Committee should assign its able attorney Norman Eisen to conduct the questioning," proposed Rubin. "Members could then follow up with additional questions.'

One question she proposed asking: "Mr. Mueller, the attorney general said you did not find 'collusion.' However, you did not look for collusion. Please explain what you looked for and how that differs from [Attorney General William] Barr’s assertion that you essentially cleared President Trump of collusion?"
