You can tell Scott Terry’s a liberal plant

[ 147 ] March 15, 2013 |

Because he claims to have studied literature:

Or maybe not. Maybe he’s this “Southern gentleman and blogger,” also named Scott Terry and also from North Carolina, who is “working toward a degree in Philosophy and English, likes long walks on short beaches, fishing and breaking liberal talking-points into tiny pieces (then spreading nasty rumors about those pieces!).” Because they seem to have quite a bit in common. Both, for example, are very concerned about “standing up for our [sic] heritage as Christian white men.” Even if that’s a different Scott Terry, I will say this about the self-professed “Southern gentleman”: it’s about damn dime someone created “a conceptual ladder” that prevents Christians from “betraying [their] God and Father” on “[a]ll of [their] positions, from abortion to alien abduction.”

    Three 6 Mafia needs a re-write: It’s hard out there for a cracker.

  2. Malaclypse says:

    Look, Data already explained: slavery wasn’t racist, it was statistical.

  3. Jeffrey Beaumont says:

    The comments section on those links is very special. American Taliban!

  4. commie atheist says:

    I’m surprised he left “The Turner Diaries” off his list of approved White People books.

  5. charles pierce says:

    That book list qualifies as child abuse.

  6. commie atheist says:

    More fun stuff here:

    ThinkProgress spoke with Terry, who sported a Rick Santorum sticker and attended CPAC with a friend who wore a Confederate Flag-emblazoned t-shirt, about his views after the panel. Terry maintained that white people have been “systematically disenfranchised” by federal legislation.

    When asked by ThinkProgress if he’d accept a society where African-Americans were permanently subservient to whites, he said “I’d be fine with that.” He also claimed that African-Americans “should be allowed to vote in Africa,” and that “all the Tea Parties” were concerned with the same racial problems that he was.

    At one point, a woman challenged him on the Republican Party’s roots, to which Terry responded, “I didn’t know the legacy of the Republican Party included women correcting men in public.”

    He claimed to be a direct descendent of Confederate President Jefferson Davis.

    • At one point, a woman challenged him on the Republican Party’s roots, to which Terry responded, “I didn’t know the legacy of the Republican Party included women correcting men in public.”

      Can somebody arrange so somebody will say this at every Republican function?

      • commie atheist says:

        Of course, it only applies to correcting Republican men. Phyllis Schlafly has had a very long and lucrative career of correcting everyone, men and women alike, in public. When she finally drops dead, Ann Coulter is ready to carry on the tradition.

      • STH says:

        So, how’s that outreach to women coming along? You guys got that demographic sewn up yet?

      • Warren Terra says:

        It’s been quite a while since I read the excellent All On Fire, but my (admittedly vague) recollection is that the early, radical Republicans were in fact excellent (at the very least by contemporary standards) on issues of Womens’ Liberation, including Suffrage, and that after the Abolition of Slavery was accomplished a lot of the organizations shifted to that fight.

      • Hogeye Grex says:

        I said to a friend earlier that CPAC really should move to October, so it’s fresh in voters’ minds for the elections.

    • Uncle Kvetch says:

      At one point, a woman challenged him on the Republican Party’s roots, to which Terry responded, “I didn’t know the legacy of the Republican Party included women correcting men in public.”

      Hey, our Chesternuts is a celebrity!

    • cpinva says:

      “He claimed to be a direct descendent of Confederate President Jefferson Davis.”

      did he dress like a woman, to make his escape?

    • somethingblue says:

      Terry, who sported a Rick Santorum sticker …

      Bad week for Rick! Not elected Pope, and then this guy.

    • Hogeye Grex says:

      …a direct descendent of Confederate President Jefferson Davis.

      On both sides, I’m sure.

    • J. Otto Pohl says:

      While this is a bit tangential there are a group of organized Black Americans in Ghana who demand the right to vote in Ghana. They also demand the right to “own” rather than lease land. Both of which pit them against the indigenous Ghanaians. But, I do not think there are any African countries that would be prepared to allow Black Americans to vote in their elections.

    • Bill Murray says:

      He also claimed that African-Americans “should be allowed to vote in Africa,”

      wouldn’t this, broadly applied, lead to no one voting in America? of course that may be the point, if the right person becomes dictater

      • Cody says:

        Obviously he’s a bit ignorant that he’s also an immigrant. Seems a lot of racists think we were here “first”. Or else they just don’t count Native Americans as real humans.

  7. Major Kong says:

    Wow. Just wow. I got nothin’

  8. Aaron B. says:

    I vote for James O’Keefe and this guy to become Conservative Superfriends!

  9. What really takes the cake is that they have to know that the media is going to report on this, and yet here is this guy anyway, opening his mouth, and no one is stuffing that mouth with a rolled-up sock while a hook appears from behind the side curtain to yank him away. Amazing.

    • commie atheist says:

      He is sick and tired of being called a racist, though.

    • STH says:

      This is considered a reasonable position there, though a few of the more media-savvy ones will understand you’re only supposed to express it in private.

      I’m just laughing and laughing about this. So many–so, so many–Republican statements about any policy position boil down to, “what do we straight white rich men want to give up to the rest of society?” And the answer is always, “nothing!” (See Think Progress’s video of CPAC attendees’ reactions to the Rob Portman thing for another example.) Oh, the privilege, it burns.

  10. Jon Ponder says:

    I think you meant “because he claims to have studied literature” ‘n stuff.

  11. MAJeff says:

    I simply cannot fathom that someone who claims to be a descendent of Jefferson “Traitor for Slavery” Davis would claim to think blacks being subordinate would be a good thing.

  12. laura says:

    Of course, *right after this happened* one of the sixth-string interns at National Review submitted a glowing post at the Corner about the shoe shine man working CPAC after his pension got destroyed in the crash, complete with a photo of this “entrepreneurial” black man over 60 shining the shoes of some white Republican fat cat. Excellent work guys.

  13. cpinva says:

    anyone care to make a guess, as to the gun:person ratio, on that site? myself, i’m thinking around 10:1.

  14. Kit Quemada says:

    Interesting that at the Faith & Heritage blog, Scott Terry posted “A Young Man’s Reading List” that features anti-Semitic as well as racist titles. The 25th book on it is “Judaism Discovered,” by Michael A Hoffman II, a prominent Holocaust denier. http://is.gd/IRaRao

  15. My favorite bit of the reportage is all the people saying “talking about race is hard.” and “people get offended easily.”

    Maybe it’s just you?

  16. Sly says:

    To me, the most offensive thing in that video is the speaker retelling a story about how Frederick Douglas forgave his former master and thinking it a proper way to connect with some segregationist shitbag who has fantasies of persecution.

    Something tells me that What to the Slave is the Fourth of July? is not on the reading list of Frederick Douglass Republicans.

    • Loud Liberal says:

      The most offensive part of that video was when the professor said that Frederick Douglas forgave his slaveowner and that fucking Hitler Youth doughboy asked the professor if he meant that Frederick Douglas forgave his slaveowner for giveing him shelter and food, etc., implying that Frederick Douglas should have been greatful for shelter and food he received while in slavery.

      I wonder, if that pasty shitbag had spent 20 years in prison on false charges, would he be greatful to the prosecutor and prison warden for the 20 years of free shelter and food he received?

      WHAT A FUCKING ASSHOLE!

      • Nancy Richardson says:

        From the Wikipedia article on Douglass:

        “In 1833, Thomas Auld took Douglass back from Hugh after a dispute (“[a]s a means of punishing Hugh,” Douglass wrote). Dissatisfied with Douglass, Thomas Auld sent him to work for Edward Covey, a poor farmer who had a reputation as a “slave-breaker.” He whipped Douglass regularly. The sixteen-year-old Douglass was nearly broken psychologically by his ordeal under Covey, but he finally rebelled against the beatings and fought back. After losing a physical confrontation with Douglass, Covey never tried to beat him again”

        (this thing about Frederick Douglass being a conservative Republican appears to be the thesis of a self published book which seems to very confused about antebellum politics.)

      • laura says:

        What’s even more offensive is that nobody in the room really takes issue with HYDB’s point, and then afterward they’re all like “oh look, I wouldn’t have put it that way but the guy is entitled to his opinion. It’s tough being a while male these days” etc. I mean, I’m sympathetic to accusations of nutpicking but only on the condition that other people in the room who are supposedly suffering from guilt by association can themselves identify the nut.

    • ddt says:

      Okay, credit where credit’s due: you can see a good percentage of the audience doing literal jaw drops when he pooped out his privileged, anti-historical mal mot. Whether they were truly offended morally, or just couldn’t believe he said what they were all thinking (look, you’re glomming on seminars at CPAC, you can’t claim you’re an innocent) — that we’ll leave to their own dark, chewy, semi-moral centers.

      • laura says:

        Some jaws dropped but nobody said a damn thing until they started yelling at the black lady trying to point out that things were taking a racist turn.

        • MAJeff says:

          Of course. She was playing the “race card” and the whole session was dedicated toward demonstrating the worthlessness of the “race card.”

          • laura says:

            Unless it’s the white race card. That one’s still good. “Help help I’m being disenfranchised!”

            • MAJeff says:

              It *is* hard out there for a cracker…

              • laura says:

                Yes, it’s very upsetting and disenfranchising for racists when people who aren’t racist outvote them. That’s why crackers like him don’t like democracy.

                • LittlePig says:

                  Nope. They think they are descended from Antebellum landed gentry. The actual geneology is no doubt much less kind.

                  It’s kind of that English-German yearning for the King/Kaiser. As long as they kiss the right ass, they will always be above somebody. And to white trash like this fellow, being above black folk is The Whole Thing.

                  (As a white trash hillbilly myself, trust me on this one. This guy is still in relatively mild territory)

  17. Nancy Richardson says:

    Nope…Scott Terry is a member of the White Student Union at Towson College in Maryland along with Former leader of Youth for Western Civilization, Matthew Heimbach. (they had 23 members show up at CPAC) Both have history of being active in White Nationalist Hate groups, as tracked by the Southern Poverty Law Center. Terry isn’t a plant, he is pure Southern Fried Homegrown White Pride and Confederate Heritage. In short, a traitor to this great nation of ours. Might be a good choice to appear in Django Unleashed Part 2.

    • NewHavenGuy says:

      Shocked I am. Gambling at Rick’s Place! That said, thanks and love the comment. I appreciate the content and the language to, because Treason.

      That funny thing that happened the 1860s isn’t often talked about in terms of treason, but it should be. Davis and Lee should have been tried and hanged, not to mention scum like Nathan Bedford Forrest, who should have been robbed and murdered in an alley somewhere. By John Wayne Gacy, preferably.

      Not big on nationalism, but really, letting straight-up armed treason slide? Venerating fucking TRAITORS for generations, after the fact? Recurrent theme unfortunately, as long as one is reactionary Right things like [everything RMN did in office or clambering for it] and Iran-Contra must be forgotten immediately for the good of the country too. (See also: Avignon Presidency, 2001-2009.

      Hasn’t been so good for the country though.

    “Whenever I hear any one arguing for slavery I feel a strong impulse to see it tried on him personally.”

    • MobiusKlein says:

      search and replace slavery – torture.

    • Anonymous says:

      Interestingly, this is something of a paraphrase of Douglass’s definitive of refutation of slavery in “What to the Slave is the Fourth of July.” In explaining why he won’t be engaging in long philosophical arguments designed to prove that slaves are people, he finally observes: “There is not a man under the canopy of heavan who does not know that slavery is wrong for him.”

  20. LosGatosCA says:

    Speaking of fucking losers. Over 5 years of hell for the middle class after 3 decades of losing class warfare to these parasites who fancy themselves ‘makers’:

    “Former U.S. Federal Reserve chairman Alan Greenspan said Friday that a mild recession would be a “small price to pay” for getting the nation’s debt problems under control.”

    Greenspan, Cheney, and Scalia in their own circle of Hell isn’t nearly enough justice. Even if Mickey Kaus is mistaking them for goats.

  21. Warren Terra says:

    Shame he couldn’t go on record about how the abolition of slavery was unConstitutional Taking of people’s private property rights.

  22. Warren Terra says:

    OK, this is fun, from the TPM story about the panel: the Steppin Fetchit who was leading the panel discussion has responded with a statement, in part:

    In the middle of my delivery .. I was rudely interrupted by a [Black] woman working for the Voice of Russia … [the] question was intentionally disruptive and coercive with no way of creating a positive dialogue.
    In addition, a young man who wasn’t a Tea Party Patriot, made some racially insensitive comments …. At the conclusion of the breakout session, I further explained to him the Frederick Douglass Republican Message which he embraced, bought a book, and we left as friends.

    So, for those keeping score at home: the Black Woman journalist who was a bit confrontational or at least skeptical is an unforgivable termagant, a likely commie, and (almost needless to say) a b!tch. The long-time dedicated advocate of racism and spokesman for racist organizations is within minutes his buddy, and has totally undergone a complete, transformative change of outlook because of a warm handshake and a dumbass slogan.

    • laura says:

      ha, I just found that update too. And here I was feeling sorry for the speaker basically getting confronted by somebody who hates him for no reason and would willingly disenfranchise/ marginalize/ possibly *enslave* him at an event he agreed to moderate to help conservatives engage in outreach… He calls a brain-dead defense of slavery “racially insensitive”…

      Actually, I’m still sorry for him, but holy shit.

      Fuck racists.

  23. About F&H Terry:

    He has currently returned to his home state of North Carolina after a tedious military career.

    But, but, soldiers are teh most greatest people ever, unless wounded or old or on their 7th tour in Afghanistan when a smart man would have gotten a deferment. How could it be tedious?

  24. Chesternuts says:

    SEK is a forked-tongue viper; it accused the new Pope of being complicit in abduction and torture; while:

    Adolfo Perez Ezquiel, the Nobel Peace Prize-winning human rights activist, who was detained by the dictatorship, said Pope Francis, like many clerics of the time, may not have spoken out but could not be accused of being complicit in its crimes.

    Will SEK repent and apologize for its satanic accusation?

  25. NewHavenGuy says:

    Great catch. GREAT CATCH(!)

    Makes me nervous about posting stuff on social media and blogs because- oh, wait, I’m not a fucking racist piece of shit and rarely if ever come off as one to total strangers in public. So never mind that point.

    Seems like a bright kid, sort of a waste there… then I remember the very real dynamics of race and power here in my America, that this kind of cute, “brave” racist troll shit actually does real harm to real people. A waste alright, a waste of good oxygen.

    By the way, what is the Christian poition on alien abductions?

    • D. Sidhe says:

      Demons. You are either not Saved, or not Saved For Reals.

    • Bill Murray says:

      well if it’s supposed to be the Christian position, then the answer is missionary

    • Malaclypse says:

      By the way, what is the Christian poition on alien abductions?

      I suspect it is identical to Dave Foley’s.

    • wjts says:

      I don’t know about alien abductions per se, but I’ve known a couple of Christians who have vehemently denied the possibility of intelligent life on other planets on account of how Jesus was the only son of God and therefore would not be available to die for the sins of the aliens. I also seem to remember that one of the things they burned Giordano Bruno for was claiming that life could exist on other planets, but I might be making that up.

    • Jo says:

      They’re really deceptive spiritual entities, it turns out. And they are after you.

      Deceptive spiritual entities are posing as modern day “aliens”, bringing tormenting experiences into the lives of individuals, and offering a false gospel message, in opposition to the true message of Jesus Christ.

  27. JL says:

    CPAC coverage might have been more fun this year if, like last year, they were completely shitting their pants over bizarre rumors that Occupy DC was planning to storm in and start riots and physically attack people. Anyone remember that? The CPAC guidelines advising attendees to wear shoes and clothes they could run in in case of attack? Breitbart outside the building screaming at people?

    But no, this year I just get to read about these white nationalist idiots and similar.

    Hi everyone I personally was discovering this
    article and I honestly liked it. It’s got some significantly superb insights for me to digest. I have got to bring up, I’ve truly become depressed just recently because my best mate isn’t around. Checking the ‘net
    provides me with just a little piece of mind though.

    I’d personally like to give thanks to you just for this terrific internet based content which inturn helps spread out the news dealing with home decorators even more! I personally was curious as to if you provide an email subscriber list so I can always keep up-dated .
