Racist, Sexist Republicans Nominate Mia Love In Double-Negative Ritual

Everyone knows that Republicans are racist, or they would be Democrats. Also, Republicans have been waging a war on women, as indicated by their opposition to ObamaCare. Thus, via Legal Insurrection, we discover that Mia Love is the nominee for UT-4.

There is no way this could be motivated by agreement with Love’s politics. And it cannot be that Love has actual political talent. Furthermore, Republicans are immune to improvement, so overcoming their medieval ways cannot be the driver here.

No, there can be only one explanation. Through some quirk of space-time and excess coffee, the inherent misogyny of the Republicans must have momentarily cancelled all of the bias and bigotry in their hearts, and allowed Mia Love to slip through.

Strange times, strange times. More at The Lonely Conservative.

    I tried to make the case for Romney and then the SOB floats another trial balloon for Rob Portman for Veep…  A Bush-Rovian, what could go wrong?  I need a shower, I feel so dirty…

    The voters of Utah however give me hope…however slim.

    The selection of Mia Love as a Republican nominee only proves one thing: she is not a real woman. A real woman would not be part of that party of misogynists.  /leftistspeak

     Two points about that……while there is no official religious test for office in our great land, it has to be noted that Ms. Love—a fine person I’m sure—– is nonetheless a member of the LDS.  A critical affiliation in beehive country, is it not?   Might explain this localized variance to the norm, at least.  Other than that I can only note that even the stopped clock that is the Birther Party is right twice a day, at any rate……

    Wouldn’t it also prove she isn’t even Black?

    So, the truth comes out, as it usually does in time. Since you didn’t use scare quotes around the phrase “our great land” you’re not really a leftist.

    Like all true leftists, you would be a scumbag, Islamist defending, socialism promoting traitor. You are obviously a Moby in reverse, trying to inflame us against the Left. You can drop the pretense now. No worries, we will always stand strong and determined against the true traitorous leftist America hating assholes, such as you are clearly just pretending to be.

    Then you’ll love the contents of this retracted study: Why Are Black Women Rated Less Physically Attractive Than Other Women, But Black Men Are Rated Better Looking Than Other Men?
    Now personally after looking at the photos of Mia Love that retracted paper is just crazy talk at best…

     Yes, obviously a black woman of colour who is a Mormon cannot be authentic – she would have to be a member of some raving Wright-like “black liberation theology” or “black muslim” railing against Whitey, America, and demanding free reparmarations from “De Man” to be a real black woman, wouldn’t she?

    If you can’t show me in the Utah Constitution where the Mormon equivalent of the Test Act is hiding, you have a date with the banhammer, you bigoted sphincter.

    Politically speaking Shurtleff was right.Mia Love is a “novelty”. Wimmer had a better chance to beat Matheson than Mia Love. I ‘m glad Wimmer didn’t win. I’m a Matheson voter but I’m  smart enough to know that the radical right and the tea partyers would have rallied around Wimmer and I’m sure they won’t rally around Mia Love. It’s their inate bigotry which will only allow them to give lip service to Love and then they’ll stay home. Utahn’s have never voted for a black man much less a black woman. And they are not going to start now. Matheson has positioned himself so close to the center that Mia Love would have to adopt the Fox news mantra and run against every black issue ever promoted for her race and her people. Matheson and the Obama people willl play up to Mia Love , kissy pooh her and then dismiss her as another Repugnant anomaly. She can only win by adopting far far right policies to attract the tea partyers and the far right old white men of Utah and they will NEVER vote for her. In Congress the Black caucus will have her for lunch. They’ll give her a job serving on the needs of poor blacks of American and she’ll switch on the Utah Repugnants  faster than Romney will do if he gets elected.So you see Mia Love is really a “political novelty”. The significance is only because she is a black woman and being politically correct is suddenly politically correct in Utah. If the nominee was a white man there would have been no clamor over calling him a “novelty”. In fact he would have cherished the appelation.

    Good to know the Community-Based Reality is alive and well.

    In NC one has to believe in God to hold elected office.

    North Carolina’s State Constitution, Article 6 Section
    8″Disqualifications of office. The following persons shall
    be disqualified for office: First, any person who shall deny the being of
    Almighty God.”

     Two more points.   I’m not the one name-calling here and secondly,  that was explained in the original post—“there is no official religious test for office”.    Simple logic.

    Welp. Not like they’ll be missed.

    Good point bringing up yet another seriously attractive woman (in more ways than one IMHO) there richard

    Just how would Mia Love look in a pair of Condi type boots?…:-)

    Lefties do not hate black people who think for themselves because they are hatemongers.  They do so because they recognize that if black people no longer feel intimidated by the leftist thought police, then the hegemony the left holds on the political views of minorities will be in jeopardy.

     Wombat, one of the unintended consequences of putting all these electricity regulating thermostats into people’s homes is that someday you’ll have access to the Banhammer Mjolnir app, which will route 10,000 volts to their IP address.

    Hey, we can dream….

    And because they (lefties) are hatemongers. You can’t rule it out — the supporting evidence is too strong.
