Uppity Negroes

The words Rep. Lynn Westmoreland (R) was looking for were “them people” as in “Them people are not our people. Them people are outside agitators, stirring up a mess of trouble and I say they should go on back up North and to Chicago and New York or wherever else they came from. We had no problems until them people showed up.”

Assertions:

1) I think this has something to do with the 300,000 new Democratic voters (mostly black and Hispanic) that Obama’s volunteers have registered in Georgia. He headed the redistricting efforts in 2005 that tried to dilute the effect of black and Hispanic votes and he’s long been active in the fight to not renew the Voting Rights Act. He was one of two House Republicans to vote against H.R. 923, the Emmett Till Unsolved Civil Rights Crime Act of 2007. Dude’s a Dixiecrat with…uhh…unresolved racial issues. Looking at his constituents in Coweta County specifically, he suddenly has about 6000 more registered black and Hispanic voters than he did when he was elected in 2004. The rest of the new 3d District has also been transformed demographically in a similar manner thanks to the voter registration drive. He walloped his opponent in 2004 and gerrymandered some more in 2005, but I’m guessing he’s not going to have an easy ride next time. Sounds like he’s cheesed about that to me.

2) If he doesn’t know the historical usage of the word uppity and he’s lived in the South for 58 years, he is too damn dumb to be a Congressman. (I don’t say that just because of his lack of much formal education. I say that because he appears to be a clueless dumbass in a lot of ways, like only knowing three of the Ten Commandments when he makes a big deal out of his Christian bona fides.)
