The “god-bothering yahoos” and “lizard brains” of South Carolina.
Even as the voting in South Carolina’s special election was still underway, hard-left journalist Charlie Pierce stretched the bounds of credibility when he predicted a Republican victory not based on the policies or politics of the candidates, but on the overt stupidity of the people of South Carolina, as reported by the right-of-center news portal News Busters on May 7, 2013.
During an interview on the self-described “progressive” Stephanie Miller radio show, Pierce was questioned regarding his previous day’s penning of his article “South Carolina is still South Carolina.”
In pierce’s article, he referred to the people of the Palmetto State as “the god-bothering yahoos” and as a people who have “lizard brains.”
Some of the more demeaning comments are as follows and seen on the video, left:
STEPHANIE MILLER: The cogent point in your headline “South Carolina is still South Carolina.
JIM WARD: Ha ha ha ha!
STEPHANIE MILLER: Obviously the latest poll had Mark Sanford ahead, right?
CHARLIE PIERCE: And you know I I I I I appreciate that it that the fact that it’s that competitive is an amazing thing, but it’s still South Carolina.
STEPHANIE MILLER: Right.
CHARLIE PIERCE: But it’s still South Carolina.
STEPHANIE MILLER: Right because.
CHARLIE PIERCE: I mean and a and a it’s still tribal and it’s still religious and it’s still a cult. It’s not about politics here.
STEPHANIE MILLER: And as you say it’s South Caro-freaking-lina.
CHARLIE PIERCE: Yeah.
STEPHANIE MILLER: What do people expect?
CHARLIE PIERCE: Right.
A native of elite and wealthy Worcester, Massachusetts, Pierce has never lived nor worked in the historic South.
Despite The Lizard Brains And Constant Praying…
South Carolina is the only state that could boast of having the only black U.S. senator since Reconstruction, Sen. Tim Scott.
It’s also the only state to ever have a female governor whose lineage is from the Indian subcontinent, Governor Nikki Haley who is ethnically Sikh.
The Low Country also has 29 of her sons cited as recipients of this nation’s highest award for military heroism, the Medal of Honor.
