Douglas County’s GOP Blocks GA Black Republican Chair from being a County Delegate
This story comes to us courtesy of Erick’s old stomping grounds at Peach Pundit. Apparently, 1st Vice Chair of the Douglas County Republican Part Michael McNeely, who is also the Chairman of the Georgia Black Republican Council, has been blocked from being a delegate to the county’s GOP Convention by county GOP Board Member Jack Gamel. Peach Pundit links to this post from Constant Contact, where Bryan Tolar, 3rd Vice Chairman of the DCGOP, tells us:
At the Mirror Lake precinct table today, Douglas County GOP Board Member Jack Gamel led an effort to refuse Michael McNeely (a strong conservative and 1st Vice-Chair of the Douglas County GOP) a precinct delegate spot. There were 15 delegate slots available and only five people present, yet Jack insisted in his action. Jack’s petty old white man politics targeted one of the rising African American stars of Georgia and National GOP leaders. By a 3-2 vote, Jack’s efforts were successful.
Charlie from Peach Pundit, meanwhile, adds this:
I spoke to Michael McNeely today by phone. He told me that Mr. Gamel told him that his exclusion was because McNeely ran against Gamel’s friend Terry Baggett last term for First Vice-Chair of the Douglas County Party – a position that Mr. McNeely won. So, in the pettyness that is county party politics, we have a man at the precinct level who chose to block his county’s First Vice Chairman from being a delegate to his county’s convention out of what appears to be a petty act of revenge.
As Peach Pundit notes, none of this was against the rules, but this nevertheless is establishment politics at its worst. A conservative candidate (McNeely) dares to run against the guy hand-picked by a party boss, and as a consequence, the conservative gets hit with payback and shut out of the process.
Mr. McNeely’s race should be irrelevant to this discussion, but the optics here are not good nevertheless. The GOP already has enough of a problem with its reputation as the party of “old white men”, so what better way for us to live up to that image than by excluding a conservative black man from a county convention! It only looks worse when you consider the fact that McNeely is the Chairman of the Georgia Black Republican Council!
Nice job, guys.
Oh, but it gets worse. As Peach Pundit notes:
At a time when the Republican Party is desparately trying to figure out how to reach out to non-white voters, McNeely and his wife (who was not in attendence but was nominated to be a delegate) were excluded by a vote of 3-2. Three white votes were for exclusion; Two African American votes were for inclusion.

Thank you for your defense of the TEA Party. Those RINO Democrats need to be pointed out.
Again, the TEA Party thanks you for identifying another RINO.

Tell us about those subsidies to oil companies. You still haven't done that. Or, is that just another of the propaganda lies you get indoctrinated with at your indoctrination sessions?
Tell us about those oil subsidies.
A fossil fuel subsidy is any government action that lowers the cost of fossil fuel energy production, raises the price received by energy producers or lowers the price paid by energy consumers. There are a lot of activities under this simple definition—tax breaks and giveaways, but also loans at favorable rates, price controls, purchase requirements and a whole lot of other things.

n the United States, credible estimates of annual fossil fuel subsidies range from $10 billion to $52 billion annually, while even efforts to remove small portions of those subsidies have been defeated in Congress, as shown in the graphic below.

President Obama has proposed cutting fossil fuel subsidies every year he’s been in office. The projections for savings have varied slightly each year but always hover around $4 billion annually. Congress has never even proposed voting on all of them.

anything else that your ignorance extends to that you need explained? always happy to do it for you.

You forgot to put content in you rpost. I'll help you correct your mistake. Here's the post again:
Monday morning. I guess it's time for you to do your usual clumsy dance and run away from answering these questions.
We still haven't gotten an answer to these questions:
Where was Obama during the 7-hour battle between Al Qaeda and the stripped-down American embassy security detatchment in Benghazi while the White House watched Al Qaeda kill Americans on the real-time video feed?
Why did Obama lie for two weeks covering up the Al Qaeda attack on the United States?
Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?
And, a new question:
Joe Biden says the government can infringe on the right of the people to keep and bear arms. Where is the text in the Constitution that gives the government the authority to infringe on the right of the people to keep and bear arms?
And, another question:
Eric Holder says the government can determine who in the United States is allowed to have a firearm. Where is the text in the Constitution that gives the government the authority to decide who in the United States is allowed to own a firearm?
The questions that Democrats can't, or won't answer just keeps growing.
The answer to the first two questions may describe treason.
If the third question isn't answered, the government collapses and the existence of the United States comes to an end.
The answer to the last two questions may describe the establishment of an unconstitutional dictatorship.
These questions will ultimately be answered. Hopefully, it will be through dialogue.
How about you do your part to save the country and answer these questions....
Here's an analogy I've used that you may have missed:
Three drunks are sitting in a bar, Galt, waxturd and DBWriter. Waxturd says to Galt, "I don't have any friends so I'm going to buy drinks all night for everyone in the bar and maybe someone will like me. Will you pay for it?". Galt says, "Sure I will.". When the tab comes DBWriter, who has been listening to all this says, "I wonder where waxturd is going to get the money to pay for all those drinks?".

Congress authorized the war against al Qaeda and its allies. While many details of the drone strikes remain secret, it can hardly be argued that Congress isn’t aware of the program’s existence or the administration’s -general legal justification for it; Attorney General Eric Holder spelled out much the same case for the program last March in a speech at Northwestern University. Nor is it possible for the administration to carry out the program without congressional authorizations, either by the intelligence or the armed services committees. And as the confirmation hearings of CIA director nominee John Brennan demonstrate, Congress has always had the ability to dig deeper if it chooses to use its oversight powers. What the critics don’t want to admit is that poll after poll indicates that the American public supports the drone program, and members of Congress, within reason, will reflect that support.

not to worry. they don't get to interpret the Constitution. only the Court does.

whatever they have to say about following the document to the letter is pure BS. the Court has already blown up the whole gun debate by declaring there are 'dangerous and unusual' weapons in the cause of defending handguns.

and that's not the only thing they don't want to acknowledge.

Trying to force a square peg into a circle huh! Show me where Obama said he doesn't support your right to bear arms. You can't because he's never said it! So if he never said it how can you align him with legendary dictators. Like I said you live in a world of hypotheticals. Making up shyt to ease your minds anxieties. You people are crazy!

we're always hearing about how the black folks are getting screwed by Obama, and now we know why according to those black folks.

Perhaps President Obama isn't as much of a economically empowering friend to minority Americans as we think he is? Colorlines editor Imara Jones writes that the POTUS is complicit in some of the Republicans' financially tough policies.

There was no 7 hour battle but two separate attacks. Obama was in a meeting with Panetta & the head of the joint chiefs an hour & 20 minutes after the first attack started. Obama gets his money from the treasury department. So you say the NRA will push for private ownership of armed drones.

No wonder you need to have subsidies to survive. You're too stupid to make it on your own.

So, please tell us why you make the association between racial discrimination and the history of bad lonas in the areas you claim were being racially discriminated against.
In short, why did the areas banks didn't want to invest in have a history of bad loans? What was the relationship to race?
... I'll wait for your answer on this one.
The court called it racist. Why are you defending racism?? Oh that's right, you're a Tea Party racist POS.

I understand your position. You favored the voter photo ID. It wasn't that the vast majority of those who didn't have a photo ID were poor people & disproportionally black, was it? But you, being a racist f*ck, didn't care & you f*cked people out of their vote. It must because you believe in the Constitution...as long as it suits your racist agenda yet when it comes to black people buying homes & voting, you crumble it up & piss on it.
