the black vote was solid GOP after Lincoln (for those that could vote). That changed with Kennedy’s civil rights platform. It further solidified when Goldwater opposed ending segregation (and yes, that is exactly what he was doing).
This is not a new story or understanding of the “black vote.” Furthermore, GOPers need to stop pretending Lincoln is even relevant to their party anymore. Sure, he is a famous and revered president that happened to be a Republican. His positions on federal power, taxation, and his embracing of what are now “socialist” orientations would warrant his disowning if GOPers knew their own history. All they know is that Lincoln is on the penny, the $5 bill, and was President of the United States during the “war of northern aggression.”
Same goes for TR and Eisenhower.

Do these allegations really reflect the ‘one party’ that the dumbest among us want running this state for everybody else?
Jeez, these are the same level of numbskulls that populated the shrub Whitehouse. ‘Follow the stupid instructions you are given, don’t ask any questions and don’t blame the party when it all blows up’.
Nixon never dies for you people.

Goodness, looks like ol’ Jim’s replay of this ‘news’ item stirred up a few hard feelin’s from the Henry County folks, even a few history lessons. The Henry County rednecks perfectly embody today’s GOP. Racist, ignorant, stuck in the past.

Bluemoon I’m quite aware of the politics of this country. What I’m doing is calling it what it is today. You sound like a good ole boy yourself. The Repubs don’t control the market on racism tho’ their brand is more proud of it today. What are you…, home schooled? History has taught me about white backlash, and that’s what we see today. Not all white people; mind you; but enough to bring bad memories from what I do know of history in this country. The difference now is that the world is waiting for chance for revenge and it’s not just black people who were wronged but many others the world over. What happened tho’ with African Americans was the atempted denial of our humanity. History taught me that it was taught in your churches and schools that black people weren’t really human beings. How much history do I need Bluemoon. Teach me some more.

Every week my spouse asks me “do you really want to live in a state where the Government is so corrupt, and the people are so filled with hate of their fellow man”. It seems to be getting worse every year, what is wrong with the people in this state. It seems to me with all the churches in this state, that we have a bunch of not so Christian people, who profess to be Christian but are far removed from it.

If the Henry GOP is racist who are these black and Asian people I see at the meetings and are participating in the GOP? WSB doesn’t have a clue what they are reporting and Hakmati’s lawyer is just a guy looking for a payday. As a standoffish observer I think Hakmati is a plant.

Sahar is a strong woman and is very brave to stand up to thebigoted right wingers.
These same women are now attacking the GOP State Chairwoman and calling her the same names. We are tired of their little group running out all the hard workers in Henry County.
Sahar is the one who is showing them what real Republican values can be.
May 7th, 20127:55 am
In what way?
Someone who told the truth about what was happening at and after meetings?
Wouldn’t that be not a ‘gop zombie’?
With this newfound blind allegiance to the Georgia gop, you guys do realize that those who didn’t vote for you (and in many cases would never vote for you) do still have a justified expectation for you to follow the Federal and State Constitution in order to fairly govern everyone?
That is the job.
Could someone project a date in the future when that is supposed to begin?

Republicans are narrow minded and hateful. Period. That is easy for most to see unless you have been drinking the cool aid.

Somebody needs to clue-in the Afghan refugee: she isn’t “white” so there’s no “fit” with the Gay Old Pervert party in Georgia. GOPers, other than the righteous illegal immigration-fighter Nathan Deal, flock with their “own” feather: draft-dodging homosexual psychopaths like George W. Bush.

There is a pattern to all this. This woman began by filtering into the Henry GOP and became good friends with those she is suing. Then she was elected to a position in the party and used that stance to garner monies not only for the party but for herself. Only then this woman was elected as leader of the women’s group and took over as a person with a grudge. Then she spread all types of rumors about then chairman Mr. Eddy who had worked to make the party a productive group. Then when it was discovered that this woman was intentionally causing havoc she was asked to leave the womens group and to give up her officers position in the Henry GOP. That is when this woman began her own RHINO group and pledged to hurt the local GOP all she could. The pattern here shows that she wants to be the leader at all costs. When a person or persons confront her they are bigots. Maybe all the name calling is for a reason. This woman cannot shelter her ways by running to the tv news for help pretending to be what she is not. Now if all these viewpoints make me a southern, redneck bigot just remember that I am from Mexico and I don’t see why this woman has to be what she calls a victim. It seems that those around her were the victims.

Accusing a private individual of theft is something that can get you sued. And ISP locations can be checked.

“Accusing a private individual of theft is something that can get you sued.”
Yes, just ask the 3 ladies who did get sued for making all kinds of accusations and statements about Sahar.
May 7th, 201212:45 pm
Wow. The only thing funnier than these posts are some of the internet jokes I get. Talk about airing dirty laundry. This has been hilarious.

The Henry County GOP bigots represent a small minority in that County’s party structure but did use their experience to sway enough of the weak willed membreship to get enough votes to kick out Sahar. Heck of a job HC! Now they can proudly appeal to other fence turtle bigots to join with them for God only knows what reason, citing their success at removing someone different from themselves from their midst.
Yes, the DEMS do love to see this kind of divisiveness and will take whatever pot shots they can to cover for the biggest race baiter this country has ever seen in one BHO, aka Barry Soetoro who has used the Trevor Martin incident to stir up racial hatred to a fevor pitch along with his willing accomplices in the Media.
Sahar is a LEGAL immigrant to this country and has a passion for freedom and Liberty that few homegrown GOP’ers or DEMS could begin to fathom… Or is it that passion that threatons you so?
All of this is unavoidable since racial division is one of the few things left for our politicians and media to exploit for power. God knows the financial destruction of this Nation is nearly complete and both parties have and had a hand in this with the only seperation being the DEMS want it faster than the REPUBS. That being said, those within the GOP who truly do believe that the only way to this country’s salvation is through breathing life back into the Constitution are, like Sahar, finding the roadblocks from both parties rather formidable but not insurmountable and the only way too get there from here is to expose the hypocricy on both sides of the aisle and gain the support of the rest of the honest, God fearing conservatives that represent a true majority of Georgians in general and Henry County in particular.
If any of the respondents here had the morals and passions of Sahar, this country wouldn’t be in the state we are now in and the HC GOP is but a micrcosm of what ailes this Nation. They would call her a terrorist based on her name alone. They would call her a liar based on their lies and have even accused her of being Muslim when she is, in fact, a Christian. What other depths would they sink to in order to FEEL better about themselves and their actions? Throwing themselves on the floor and having a tantrum, which did occur at the 13th District Convention, because they can’t get their way?
She fights for American ideals.., what do you fight for? Just as I thought, nothing, so, get your lazy butts back on the porch and get out of the way of this and other true Patriots.
Sahar is such a Patriot and I’m proud to count her as a friend.
The banter here and elsewhere reminds me of this saying…
Great people talk about ideas,
avreage people talk about things and
small people talk about other people.
So you porch sitters do what you do best.., nothing but sit there and talk about everybody else while Rome burns around you. To the rest of you I say mount up and ride alongside other Americans like Sahar willing to do what was commanded by the founders. Fight for your Freedom. After all, it isn’t free and millions have paid the ultimate price so that we can continue the battle.
God bless America..

With all the name calling lets throw some out, Chip Flanegan, Mark Alarcon, BJ Mathis, Robin Ernest, Denise Bowman Patton, All friends with Sahar all toadies for her lets remember this come election time.
May 7th, 20122:25 pm
Sahar had a fundraiser for BJ Mathis with the Attorney General A State Rep even former Councilwoman Gillbert was there and I should know I took the photo. Just a little time after this the man had to close his restaurant no one would eat there anymore.
