After over a week of intense media scrutiny and public outcry over her comments, Duval County GOP Secretary Kim Crenier has decided to not seek re-election to office this month, according to The Folio Weekly.

      Duval County is simply southern Georgia, it has a very back wood mentality.

        I think Fl has taken it to a high art.

    I really hope Wallmart offers her a job.

    why not blast her out of office by turning a fire hose on her?

    When Dana Carvey invented The Church Lady, he had this woman in mind.
    “Maybe we should turn the hoses on them? Wouldn’t that just be special, hmmmm?”

    Fox effect #332: Ordinary mortals see their Gods on T.V. getting away with saying outrageous sh*t and feel they too can get away with similar talk.

      What scares me is when they take the next step and start shooting while the instigators claim innocence

    All these racist inbred goptp deflecting their divisive babble onto the President are being called out. It is about damn time!

      Pitty Pat…..

    She seems like a genuinely horrible human being. The type who definitely needs to be flushed out of politics.

    Republican silence and tacit approval of racism and its enabling is expected. In order to be a Republican, let alone an elected one; there is an acceptance of racism prerequisite. They cannot publically disown another or disparage a racist martyr. To the mentally ill racist Republican mindset; she is now a fallen hero.

    The GOP continues to self destruct.

      Not soon enough

    It’s interesting how it’s only race-baiting racists who call President Obama a race-baiter.

    • Hirightnow December 6th, 2014 at 6:35 am

      AH, but calling a race-baiting racist a race-baiting racist makes one a race-baiting racist, in the eyes of the GOP…

    Seems to be a gopee chick thing…you have that twit in Tennessee putting down the POTUS’ children’s dress

    You would think saying these things, would hurt their party, but instead, each time one of them
    says something cruel, vile, etc. it turns them into some kind of hero in
    the republican party, even if it ruins their career (short term) This
    is the kind of stuff they thrive on. It makes me sic. WATER CANNONS??? We can start with the people that think it is less lethal than taser etc. Perhaps a direct shot in the eye, a blown eardrum, or being knocked off of your feet, not to mention the absolute humiliation of being sprayed with water (like a dog on your lawn) , might seem ‘not so bad’ to this….. person
    It sure conjures up images from days past doesn’t it?

    …she replied that “the civil rights implication never even entered my head.”

    That ain’t all, lady, that ain’t all…

    Hoses, did we run out of bullets?

    Duval County and Jacksonville are still firmly in the mindset of the Bull Connors of the past. The area is more “deep South” than many parts of Ga, Ala, etc., despite the numerous business and financial interests located there (well, they do represent the 1%).
    If anyone wonders why Florida has such terrible politicians, take a look at this area, which always supports the most reich wing, and has a large population.

    The double standards in this country know no bounds. Expressing your 2nd amendment rights and black and protesting injustice, you are a thug. Destroying property, pick pocketing, raping after your team wins a championship is “letting off steam and ok.Wake up white people!
