Left’s Claims of GOP Racism, Utah’s Mia Love Takes Nomination

Why, oh, why can’t those racist, women-hating Republicans ever nominate a black woman to anything? I mean, those kindly leftists are right, those evil Republi… oh, wait. Looks like those lying Democrats are wrong again. We see in Utah where Mia Love has just overwhelmingly taken the GOP nomination to run for Utah’s 4th Congressional District.

Let’s see what the Democrats have to say about this nomination. They will probably stick their fingers in their ears and yell “la, la, la” at the top of their lungs to once again drown out the truth. Love herself told me “according to the left, I am not supposed to exist.”

Mia Love didn’t just win the nomination for Utah’s 4th, she ran away with it winning 70.4 percent of the vote with her opponent, an establishment guy, netting a paltry 29.6 percent.

In her address, Love said:

“Jim Matheson should be pretty frightened right now. He should be pretty scared,” she said after clinching the nomination. “He’s never gone against a candidate like me.”

—-

“Today we have an opportunity to do something very special. Today we can start breaking a pattern,” Love exhorted delegates before the final vote. “Today we can start bringing Jim Matheson home. Elect one nominee today, so we can take this fight to Jim Matheson tomorrow.”

Love, the Mayor of Saratoga Springs, was offhandedly termed a “novelty” during the GOP convention by Utah Attorney General Mark Shurtleff who was supporting Love’s rival, Carl Wimmer. Needless to say, after Wimmer was crushed by party faithful, Shurtleff rushed to apologize to Love for the remark.

AG Shurtleff obviously meant nothing racist by the remark — he was simply hamhandedly noting that Love was very new to state-wide politics and a virtual unknown only months ago — but some feel that his badly received remark on the podium helped get Love the nomination.

But let’s not imagine there are hard feelings between Love’s insurgent candidacy and the Utah GOP good old boy network that backed Wimmer. After all, right there that very night, Carl Wimmer graciously jumped up on stage in support of Love urging the party to enthusiastically support her.

Mia Love will face incumbent Democrat Jim Matheson in November. Matheson is thought to be quite vulnerable. Redistricting made his current district less inviting so he jumped from his current 2nd District to the 4th District in a desperate bid to stay in Congress.

I interviewed Love at CPAC this year. I found her vivacious, exciting, and impressive. You will, too…

You can follow Mia Love (and donate to her campaign) at Love4Utah.com, follow on Twitter @MiaBLove, Facebook as well as YouTube.

Come on, folks. Let’s help send Mia Love to Congress.

    “they will probably stick their fingers in their ears and yell “la, la, la” at the top of their lungs”

    No, they will smear her as a sell-out, and Uncle Tom, and a race traitor, then do everything in their power to defeat her.  But at least we’ll get to enjoy watching feminists and civil rights activists try to explain to their constituencies why they should not vote for an intelligent, hard working Black woman.  That’s always entertaining.

       “Let’s see what the Democrats have to say about this nomination.”

      Well she’s not REALLY Black.  Or something along those lines.  Probably born with a Silver Spoon in her mouth as well.

      That would be an ‘Aunt Jemimah’ aka Sec State Rice.

    You only say that because they have done that to every other black political figure on the right.  But don’t ever point out their racism. 

  • Commander_Chico

    I recall she was facing three white guy clones in the primary.

    Anyways, good luck to her.

    You know, it would be really nice if Republicans weren’t so vulnerable to charges of racism and sexism. Then we could stop reading these defensive articles that basically say “LOOK!!!! We LOVE black people!!! SEE! We even have running on our ticket!” every single time.

    I mean, come on, you didn’t even say one word about what she stands for. Apparently the fact that she’s black and female is supposed to make her completely invulnerable. Of course, she’s not really a person to you – simply a tool in some war against a straw man. And yeah, that’s a little racist.

    Because there’s no better way of spotting a racist than the phrase “some of my best friends are black.”

    At least you guys aren’t doing it with your (openly) gay Republicans. Then again, as far as I can tell the Log Cabin Republicans are in Minnesota and nowhere else.

    • jim_m

       you didn’t even say one word about what she stands for.

      Because we already know that part. 

      I think we can safely file Mr Lieder’s comment under “mia Love is a sell out and the GOP are exploiting her as a token”.  Note that he complains that the article doesn’t list her full platform (For those who follow Instapundit her campaign is nothing new) yet he assumes that she has nothing to say on the issues.  That assumption my friend is racist and it is exactly what I have been saying about the left for some time now.

        Don’t know if you’ve noticed, Jim, but conservatives and those who “already know that part” aren’t the only readers of Wizbang. 

        • jim_m

           Yes, I know.  And I recognize that most of the lefties are not intelligent enough to know how to use Google as well.

      All they see is her color.

        Correction: all you see is her color.

        Maybe know something about what you are talking about before spewing your racist bile everywhere.

        • jim_m

           Hey grumpy old fool,  Mia Love happens to be a Mormon too.  Care to make some bigoted statements about that while you’re at it?

        • Brucehenry

          LOL, Jim —  the smartest Congressional tea Party candidate? Not a terribly high bar.

          I watched the youtube video. If that’s your evidence that she is so super smart, I wonder what you think run-of-the-mill tea party boilerplate sounds like. And…. Bastiat? Give me a break.

          • jim_m

             No. That’s my evidence that people think something of her beyond her skin color. 

            Grumpy is the exemplar of the bigoted leftist, who thinks that blacks need to know their place as servants of the democratic party and that they should not be allowed to have their own ideas and opinions.  You ask for evidence of leftist racial bias and I give you Grumpy old fool.

            This coming from a guy that supports Joe Biden’s party… lol

        Take you, your racist comments, and your baseles accusations and shove them all up your RACIST ass.

    “AG Shurtleff obviously meant nothing racist by the remark — he was simply hamhandedly noting that Love was very new to state-wide politics and a virtual unknown only months ago “

    I hate to say this (okay, no I don’t) but if the tables were turned we wouldn’t be hearing this from the other side: “[insert any republican/conservative] obviously meant nothing racist by the remark — he was simply hamhandedly noting that [insert any democrat/liberal] was very new to state-wide politics and a virtual unknown only months ago “

  • iwogisdead

    The leftists show up with their usual pointless, irrelevant drivel. Do they know how boring they are?

  • Plinytherecent

    If (when) she wins, I’ll bet they still won’t let her into the Congressional Black Caucus (there’s some history there).

    • http://wizbangblog.com/author/rodney-graves/ Rodney G. Graves

      I won’t take that bet.

  • mikegiles

    “If (when) she wins, I’ll bet they still won’t let her into the Congressional Black Caucus (there’s some history there).”

    Hopefully, she’ll be too intelligent to join.
