McKinney Goes Out With A Bang (Video)

An anti-Semitic bang, that is. Here’s video from tonight’s H&C featuring McKinney’s New Blank Panther entourage shouting about the “Zionists” and telling one Jewish reporter to put his “yarmulke on.”

In a time where bipartisanship is very rare indeed, I think we can all agree that it’s a triumph for democracy that this crazy, violence-prone, um, “lady” is gone gone gone.

But before the last post I ever write on McKinney is over, as Jon Stewart would say, your moment of Zen:

    yep, when you get republicans to crossover and vote for somebody in the democratic primary that they would never even consider voting for in the general election we certainly can all agree that it’s a triumph for democracy…..

    well, maybe not all of us…..some of us still hold on to some of our integrity

  2. James Joyner says:

    walter: Please quit spamming every comment thread with this same argument. It’s hardly germane to the discussion here.

  3. walter66 says:

    I have been asking the question all day whether someone would crossover to, in essence, cast a fraudulent ballot.

    LJD, as an independant can vote in both primaries……just as long as they are not held on the same day

  4. walter66 says:

    sorry, I thought we were talking about the triumph of democracy and what we are willing to do to secure that triumph

  5. walter66 says:

    what’s more “germane” to this discussion than republicans crossing over to manipulate the vote?

  6. Brian says:

    Why are you so intent on defending her? She’s clearly a nutcase, no matter the letter next to her name. I place myself firmly in the liberal camp, but I am glad to see her gone. If it was Republicans that cost her the primary, let me give them a very sincere thank you for ridding us of her.

  7. David Harris says:

    To me, this is the perfect way for people to make their voices heard. The Republicans in her district are never going to be represented by one of their own. The only way for them to effectively participate in the democratic process is to cast a vote in the opposing primary (forgoing their own) in hopes of electing the “lesser evil.”

    I don’t think anyone is going to miss her…

    it is apparent that racism and hatred are not exclusive to only the white race,as most people are led to believe. i truly resent the “C” word as much as i detest the “N” word. imagine if it was a white candidate with the new nazi party members as entourage making comment about mother****ing N****rs. believe me, the clip of that would be played over and over and over. I’m glad ms mckinney has been outed as the racist hatemonger nut case that she is and was. she has no place as a u.s representative.

  10. Tim says:

    To Walter’s point, the DeKalb Co. Board of Elections has repeatedly shown that the Republican crossover vote is a myth. They were able to demonstrate, for example, in McKinney’s loss to Majette in 2002, that if you take the number of GOP ballots cast in the previous GOP primary and subtract that number from Majette’s total, Majette still wins. McKinney sued in 2002 to have the vote overturned based on Republican crossover voting but the suit was dismissed based on this analysis and the fact that Georgia has no party registration — no one is a Republican, a Democrat or an Independent until they choose a ballot at the polling place. And they can choose another party next time.

  11. walter66 says:

    “Walter-Why are you so intent on defending her?”

    I am not defending her……where did you get that?

    I was just wondering if there was anyone that thought it was a good idea that the opposition party could choose who was going to be on the ballot in November….in this case crossover republicans who have absolutely no intention of voting for a democratic candidate in November deciding who is on the Democrat’s ballot.

    I have no problem with an open primary, but it would seem that the integrity of an open primary is wholly dependant on people who believe in the Democratic process. A person that goes into the opposition’s primary and casts a vote for a candidate that he has no intention of voting for in November is a person that DOES NOT support the Democracy.

    really, this is NOT a triumph for Democracy……..this is just another nail in the coffin of Democracy placed there by the republican party

  12. walter66 says:

    Majette’s total – number of GOP ballots cast in the previous GOP primary > McKinney’s total?

    Got a link?

    “number of GOP ballots cast in the previous GOP primary”……..would this number be valid if it was an un-contested primary?

  13. walter66 says:

    “number of GOP ballots cast in the previous GOP primary”……what exactly does this number have to do with the price of tea in China? If we were looking for the “pool” of possible crossover republicans wouldn’t we look at the number who actually voted republican in the general election and then subtract the number who voted in the republican primary?

  14. Doug says:

    And where were you in 2000 when the Dems were crossing over to vote for McCain in Michigan and South Carolina?

    Oh, yeah, that’s different.

  15. LJD says:

    Walt- you’re rambling like an insane person.

    What does your comment have to do with McKinney, other than she’s a Democrat, and lost. Of course, the real story is that she lost because of racism, you know those Zionist MF-ers. You really need ot catch up.

    I seem to remember very clearly the last primary here (hint: first in the nation)with people being bussed in from MA and VT. You couldn’t find a parking space in town, they were all taken by out of state plates.

  16. walter66 says:

    LJD……..I am not talking about McKinney, I am talking about the process

    Doug, where are you today? I take it that you are denouncing and condemning the republicans actions too……….right?

    or is it…..Oh, yeah, this is different.

  17. McGehee says:

    The crazy thing is, a Democrat political pundit here in Georgia was arguing that Republicans want McKinney in Congress so we could paint all Democrats as lunatics.

    I took that as a message to Democrats in the 4th District that they needed to vote for Johnson. Furthermore, Johnson was doing pretty well in former McKinney strongholds.

    Blaming McKinney’s defeat on Republicans is like saying a plane wouldn’t have crashed if the ground hadn’t been there.

  18. walter66 says:

    McKinney would not have been defeated(crashed) if the republicans(the ground) had not been there….did I get that right?
