Encountering ‘Tea-Baggers’ On the Path To Restoring Civility to Concord

by Steve MacDonald

That tebagger called me an offensive name- Democrats and selective civilityIs there any limit to the number of dumb things a Democrat candidate for the NH House can do or say–or claim to stand? And how come, every time I try to walk away from this guy, he keeps dragging me back?

Yes, I am referring to William Hudson Connery III, who since having stumbled onto the New Hampshire political stage–as a Democrat candidate in Newmarket (Rock 17)–has insulted people of faith,  tried to hide the fact, demonstrated a past in which he encouraged what in most places amounts to vote fraud, violated Department of Defense rules, and has now exemplified his Left Wing, New Hampshire, street cred by invoking (unsolicited) the unflattering term ‘Teabaggers.’

Tea bagger is hate speech, unless you are a democratIn his July 15th Facebook status update Mr. Connery declares…“Sorry Tea Baggers, even your hero disagrees with you” (click to expand image). I assume he’s not speaking to Ray Buckley because that would then be hate speech, or bullying, in contradiction of any number of Democrat-sponsored state statutes on such things; subject even to a Federal investigation in violation of that Pentagon/Matthew Shepherd/ Hate crimes/DoD spending bill.

Not to worry.  Connery is speaking to TEA Party Patriots.  Hypocrats get an equality-dispensation from the radical left, even if there are TEA Party folks who also happen to be gay, who might find offense.

It is also a well-known fact that this recurring homosexual epithet (favored by such left-wing 7-watt luminaries as the still-unrepentant, tea-bagger slur-wielding Congressional candidate Carol Shea-Porter)  is simply an in-house, New Hampshire Democrat party, pet name, for a group of political opponents, like Skippy or Sunshine.   And it’s all part of  ‘Restoring civility, Collaboration, and common sense to Concord, just like NH Democrat District 9 Senate Candidate Lee Nyquist keeps saying.

Sure the budget is balanced, and they cut taxes and spending, and state revenues are in just over projection, but those Teabaggers have made Concord uncivil.

And yet no word as to whether Lee ‘selective civility’ Nyquist has yet condemned candidate Connery for his disrespectful, nonsensical remarks, nor if, several weeks on he has scrounged up the integrity to publicly condemn the remarks of his own campaign manager, Kevin ‘Slugger’ Hodges.

Such is the dichotomy of the New Hampshire Democrats selective civility, burdened as it must be by the selective outrage exercised by  hypocrites like Nyquist, Hodges, Hassan, and the whole of a Democrat collectivist unconscious that cannot even imagine why anyone would consider their duplicitous underpinnings as a sign that no one can or should trust or even believe anything else they claim to stand for.

And what of Mr. Connery’s cohorts for the New Hampshire House.  We have not heard one peep (to my knowledge) from fellow Newmarket Democrats Michael Cahill, Patty Lovejoy, and Marcia Moody on any of this.  They must be on board with the hating people of faith, and the Tea-bagger slurs, and the overall selective civility plank of the State Democrat party platform, yes?  I don’t see them speaking out publicly about the inappropriateness of Mr. Connery’s incivility, nor that of Slugger-Hodges or even Maggie ‘That’s a good answer’ Hassan.

So how is it that they are not complicit, not just by party affiliation but by proximity to such blatant disregard for constructive and non-inflammatory dialogue from a Democrat candidate in their town?

They are hypocrites, that is why.  Civility is not in their tool box.  This is just political slight of hand, a rhetorical flourish over the false ideas sequestered in the disappearing cabinet of left-wing campaign promises, which when opened after election day, will be found empty and barren.

There was no civility in the legislature when Democrats ran it, just ask Democrats who tried to be civil.  Civility is an anchor to be laid upon political opponents.  It was never meant to apply to New Hampshire Democrats.   That would be uncivil.

  • I will just say that Hud’s fellow Democrats take these attacks as a badge of honor.  He’s not all that well-known, but your attacks tell us that someone out there is already deeply afraid of him.  It tells us that this guy just might be something special.

      • “Billy”?  Who is “Billy”?  (I am guessing Bill Clinton, who is not of much relevance to Hud’s state House campaign.   In fact, Hud was still high school when Clinton left the White House.)

        • billy is kind of a nick name for the proper name of “William” I presume hes referring to Mr. Connery

    • He is definitely “special” This is not an attack; but an exposure, “beating a republican with a bat” that would be an attack; but I’m sure Maggie Hassan is the only one who aggrees with that tactic. I think the only ones to be afraid of this guy are the democratic candidates running alongside in full support of his candidacy. Thats who should be afraid. Why haven’t they disavowed him?

    • Afraid someone might not realize he is a socialist Democrat hiding his dislike for people of faith?  Maybe.  Afraid people might not question his character for voting in New Hampshire when he admits to still being a resident of Tennessee while voting here…oh, and hiding his dislike for people of faith? Possibly.

      William uses the Democrat defined language of hate–Teabagger, F-Bush– which is the kind of language Democrats decry as invalidating their opponents for office.  But the best you can do in the face of the facts is to call exposing those facts out as a badge of honor?

      Well then why not wear them like one?

      We’ll start with you Mr. Horrigan.  How about you put up or shut up.  I’d like to see you publicly condone the use of offensive language, past and present, by a candidate for public office. 

      Why not say, “you know what, we think Teabagger is a fine thing to call someone.  And F-Bush..you’ve got no problem with that”  Proud of it.  Badge of honor. We should proclaim it at the start of every Democrat committee meeting.

      College students who pay out of state tuition and claim out of state residency have the right to affect your local town budgets if the in state party needs the votes, and so what if they vote on local town warrents and for local officials.  Just like that.  That would be the honorable thing to do. 

      You know what else would be honorable?  Admitting that there is a huge double standard between how Democrats react to things Democrats say versus a Republican saying the same thing.  If even one of you had any honor I’d be reading an editorial in the Concord Monitor, with the by line Timothy Horrigan, about how what Kevin Hodges said, how Maggie Hassan reacted, the way all those other Democrats smiled and laughed, at the beat Republicans with a bat remark, that this was not just inappropriate, but that all things being equal, as Democrats, you’d be calling for opponents to quit, get fired, or drop out of their respective races had they said anything similar.  That Democrats would never sit still if someone said they wanted to beat gays with a bat, or minorities, or women, and that there are gay, minority, and female republicans too.  That Democrats should expect more from their own party, that they should expect the same things of themselves they expect of others. 

      That would be a badge of honor.

      I don’t think a single one of you has the “teabag” to do it.  You all lack a quality that we here at Granite Grok demonstrate al the time.  We have principles and we don’t care who violates them.

      But not the NHDP.  Not one person in leadership, down to the lowliest candidate.  But I know what you will do.  You’ll hope it all goes away.  You’ll ignore facts and say we’re lying and hope no one else bothers to check.   You’ll claim right wing divisiveness.  You’ll say you want to focus on issues.  All the while, hiding from yourselves, hiding from the kind of language and things your candidates do, and hiding the truth about the grand hypocrisy that is the New Hampshire Democrat party.

      • When did soon to be Rep. Connery admit to being a resident of Tennessee?

        • Justice Fraul

          I don’t know of any soon to be rep admit to being a resident of TN; but the guy running for rep in newmarket did on May 7th, 2009

    Yep, just another D-bagger calling us T-e-e-e-baggers. Looks like Hud is a political dud. Being crass…showing his ass….Not demonstrating the honor of a vet, but more acting like Maggie’s pedestrian pet.   Oh! I am a poet and didn’t know it!

    This blog is so bogus. You post accusations which are simply untrue. Then you ask for civility in politics. You are a hypocrite.

    • granitegrok

       So elucidate us – which accusation are untrue, as you have made only a blanket accusation in return.  And please supply proof that we are wrong.  We’ve been wrong before, and have made the corrections and apologies.

      However, now the burden is on you, Jwalker

    • The fact that everything is in print, or on video, from the hand or
      mouths of actual Democrats should not dissuade you from claiming there
      is no proof. 

      And please do tell me….where exactly do I actually ask for civility in politics?  Or am I just making fun of the Democrats who claim we need it, and that they provide it, while engaging in uncivil behavior themselves, refusing to apply equal outrage when that incivility comes from one of their own?

      Don’t hurt yourself looking, you’ll bust your bogus gland.

      By the way..nice of you to affirm what I wrote in a comment a few page inches up the stream..

      [quote] But I know what you will do.  You’ll hope it all goes away.  You’ll
      ignore facts and say we’re lying and hope no one else bothers to check.[end quote]

    Quite ironic (and hypocritical) that in the same sentence were you complain about the “tea baggers” comment you use the phrase “Democrat candidate”, which immediately raises a giant red hardcore right wing ideologue flag. It’s not the “democrat party” and it’s not a “democrat candidate”, it’s the *democratic* party; but I somehow suspect you knew that and were only misusing the term in order to get a rise out of democrats.

    The hypocrisy of asking for civility while simultaneously attempting to subtly denigrate (or not so subtly, as the case may be) is simply nauseating.
