Outrage After Dem Party Leader Insult Nikki Haley’s Indian Heritage … Says They’ll Send GOP Governor Nicki Haley “Back to Wherever the Hell She Came From” (Update: Harpootilan Defends Comment)
Talk about your double standards … Who knew the Democrat Chairman in South Carolina was a “birther”?
Republicans are outraged after South Carolina Democratic Party Chairman Dick Harpootilan’s racist attack against Indian-American Governor Nicki Haley. The SC Democrat Party leader told supports at the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center is Columbia, SC that they will send “Nikki Haley back to wherever the hell she came from.” Really Mr.Harpootilan, just where exactly is that, Gov. Haley was born in the USA. NikkinHaley was born Nimrata Nikki Randhawa in Bamberg, South Carolina, on January 20, 1972, to an Indian Sikh family. Imagine that, these are the same people who call those who question Barack Obama’s birth certificate and where he was born. Talk about your double standards? Its perfectly ok for Democrats to make racist comments. Where is the MSM outrage? Oh that’s right, Nikki Haley is a Republican.
Conservatives are outraged after a Democrat in South Carolina allegedly insulted Republican Gov. Nikki Haley’s Indian heritage at a party gathering in Columbia on Friday.
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.
Yahoo political reporter Chris Moody tweeted on Friday that Mr Harpootlian made the comment, in support of Democrat challenger Vince Sheheen, who has declared he will run for governor.
Please, had any such comment been made against Barack Obama or an individual of color who was a Democrat, everyone in the media, Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson would be crying foul and the race card. Powerline reminds us of the past vicious comments that Harpootilan made against Nikki Haley and was allowed to get away with.
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 in 2010, Haley lived in the suburban Columbia county and represented the area in the state House.
As to whether he thought the comment could be seen as touching on her race and parents’ immigrant status, Harpootlian responded: “No, she was born in Bamberg [South Carolina] and lived in Lexington. Anybody implying anything different is attempting to feign insult.”
Things that Make You Go Hmmm … Barack Obama’s Bio Edited Numerous Times over 17 Years, but Kenyan Birthplace Changed Weeks after his Presidential Announcement
From Doug Ross comes more on Barack Obama and things that make you go hmm … Why am I not surprised that it took the Bloggers to uncover the lie?
Why would the bio of Barack Obama provided to his literary agent be changed numerous times over the years to update events and accomplishments of Obama, yet his birth place of Kenya was not changed until just after he announced his run for the Presidency in 2007? Seriously, one does not have to be a “birther” to ask such a question. This story of why Obama’s bio would read “born in Kenya” was initially brought to the public’s attention at Breitbart.com in their own going effort to do what the MSM refuses to do … Vetting the President. As stated at the PJ Tatler, when the bizarre and embarassing fact was uncovered earlier this week, agent Miriam Goderich backpedaled and stated that the Kenyan birth claim was simply a “fact-checking error.” OK, so then why did it go through a myriad of edits and updates with no change until right before Obama’s Presidential announcement?
The biography provided by Barack Obama to his literary agent specified his birthplace as “Kenya”. And, over the course of 17 years, despite multiple revisions by Obama, the Kenyan birthplace remained a fundamental part of the bio on the agent’s website.
I’ve used the Wayback Archive to explore the exact transformations of Obama’s biography on his agent’s site (click on any of the thumbnails to zoom to a readable size).
On June 27, 1998, the website read: “BARACK OBAMA was the first black president of the Harvard Law Review. He was born in Kenya to an American anthropologist and a Kenyan finance minister, and was raised in Indonesia, Hawaii, and Chicago. His first book is DREAMS FROM MY FATHER: A STORY OF RACE AND INHERITANCE.”
The Bio was updated circa December 2004; however, it still stated the following; “He was also the first African-American president of the Harvard Law Review. He was born in Kenya to an American anthropologist and a Kenyan finance minister, and was raised in Indonesia, Hawaii, and Chicago”.
Obama 2012 Theme Song … ‘Would I Lie to You’
Then as Doug Ross notes a remarkable edit was made to the Obama bio between April 3rd and April 21st 2007, where someone must have noticed the discrepancy in birthplace that would presumably disqualify the Senator from office.
On April 21, 2007, the website read: “BARACK OBAMA is the junior Democratic senator from Illinois and was the dynamic keynote speaker at the 2004 Democratic National Convention. He was also the first African-American president of the Harvard Law Review. He was born in Hawaii to an American anthropologist and a Kenyan finance minister and was raised in Indonesia, Hawaii, and Chicago. His first book, DREAMS FROM MY FATHER: A STORY OF RACE AND INHERITANCE, has been a long time New York Times bestseller.”
This is really an interesting read, go to Doug Powers and read the full post and the connect the dots investigation.
The question at hand is why lie? The Other McCain has an interesting theory that being born in Hawaii was not edgy enough to give him racial street cred. Let me just say that I am not a “birther” and actually do believe that Obama was born in Hawaii, but I also am a little taken aback by his continual lack of transparency and the fact that it appears his past is a made up fiction. We does the most transparent President ever not hand over his college transcripts and application. I am betting that it say origin of birth, Kenya.
This is all very important and not because Obama was born in Kenya but more to the point that Obama will lie and say anything for his advantage. This is hardly “Hope & Change” … it is the mark of an opportunist.
More to the point, who in the hell vets Presidential candidates? What is the process, do we just ask them whether they were born in the USA and if they say yes, that is goo enough? How could those vetting not have found something so simple? Of course we will learn long after Obama is out of office that those in the MSM knew about this all along and hushed it up.
Judge Michael Malihi Orders Barack Obama Eligible to be on Georgia Presidential Ballot … Good News for Obama, Even Better for Marco Rubio
Barack Obama wins the battle, but Democrats may have lost the war …
President Barack Obama has won the court battle in Georgia that questioned his right to be on the 2012 Presidential ballot due to his citizenship. Judge Michael Malihi dismissed the challenges that contended Obama has a fake Hawaiian birth certificate, a fraudulent Social Security number and invalid US identification papers. The Judge also dismissed the the claim that Obama was ineligible to be a candidate because his father was not a United States citizen at the time of Obama’s birth.
President Barack Obama’s name will remain on the Georgia primary ballot after a state law judge flatly rejected legal challenges that contend he can not be a candidate.
In a 10-page order, Judge Michael Malihi dismissed one challenge that contended Obama has a computer-generated Hawaiian birth certificate, a fraudulent Social Security number and invalid U.S. identification papers. He also turned back another that claimed the president is ineligible to be a candidate because his father was not a U.S. citizen at the time of Obama’s birth.
The findings by Malihi, a judge for the State Office of Administrative Hearings, go to Secretary of State Brian Kemp, who will make the final determination. Last month, at a hearing boycotted by Obama’s lawyer, Malihi considered complaints brought by members of the so-called “birther” movement.
