Jesse Helms For President!


The Americna Spectator does a good review of Jesse's new book. Wow...what a book this is going to be. I have mine ordered. I have not seen it yet and I will stake a claim that this should be required reading for every person who calls him/herself a conservative - required reading for anyone who hates conservatives (by God there are tons of them!). I like Jesse - always have. (He's good friend with Bowden and my readers know how much I like Bobby Bowden!) No BS. No PC. Politics his way. The American Way. One time Helms said that America was founded by religious nuts with guns. He's old enough to have known them all, probably. This nation needs a little more Jesse - a lot more Jesse. Look at the left...abortion, NEA, gay marriage, gay everything, anti-Christs, cultural Cherynobyl, the list goes on and on. Anyone think that we don't need Jesse now or in the future? We need Jesse now more than ever. Amen.

Oh I'm sorry to see Jesse is still around and crazy as ever. Here are some gems from his illustrous career as a bigot and crank:

"All Latins are volatile people. Hence, I was not surprised at the volatile reaction."
-- After Mexicans protested his visit in 1986

"Homosexuals are weak, morally sick wretches."
-- 1995 radio broadcast

"The University of Negroes and Communists"
-- Reference to the University of North Carolina devised by Mr. Helms when he worked for Willis Smith's 1950 U.S. Senate campaign.

"They should ask their parents if it would be all right for their son or daughter to marry a Negro."
-- In response to Duke University students holding a vigil after Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated, 1968

"All I know is that D'Aubuisson is a free enterprise man and deeply religious."
-- Responding to evidence that Roberto D'Aubuisson directed Salvadoran death squads that murdered thousands of civilians

"Your tax dollars are being used to pay for grade-school classes that teach our children that CANNIBALISM, WIFE-SWAPPING and MURDER of infants and the elderly are acceptable behavior."
-- Fund raising mailer, 1996

What's your point?
Haha, I guess you like him for the same reasons I think he's a prat.
Oh Yeah...my favorite thing he said, and this is well documented is what he said about UNC - Chapel Hill. He said, in effect, 'If you want to get rid of state tax and property tax in NC, all you have to do is put a fence around Chapel Hill and charge anyone who wants to see the monkeys and gorillas.' He's quite proud of that quote and I'm suprised it did not make your lists since it really is his most famous. God Bless Jesse!
