Can Billy woo the woman vote in KY?

This might be an obstacle:

The legal page is the report on the activity that is presently consuming my life, and has consumed my life since 1998. The legal will explain how a mentally ill wife and a liberal guided federal government railroaded me into federal prison.

Well, that might not be too bad, maybe there’s an explanati…..

During divorce proceedings in 1998, Sonny’s wife Belita ran to a women’s abuse center, due to her fear of losing money and custody of their daughter, Priscilla. Even though Sonny had never struck his wife or children (Rachel Landham is a step-daughter) [the foregoing statement was made by Belita and Rachel], the fascist women’s abuse groups of Kentucky and the federal government through judicial terrorism framed Sonny, and he did thirty-one (31) months in federal prison

CLARKSVILLE, IN–The Council of Conservative Citizens (CCC), a white supremacist organization that has strong ties to the mainstream via members that are elected officials, will be holding their annual conference next month in a Holiday Inn near Louisville, Kentucky. This will be the second time this year that a major hotel chain was the location of a white supremacist conference, and this event is listing as speakers a former actor who has worked with Eddie Murphy and Arnold Schwarzenegger, and a Canadian fascist who was most recently seen at National Vanguard’s Conference in Elmwood Park, NJ on Mother’s Day Weekend.

June 16 and 17 is when the CCC is to hold their 2006 National Conference at the Clarksville, Indiana Holiday Inn. This is considered a suburb of Louisville, Kentucky, which in recent years has seen a rag tag group of Klan members attempting to organize that reports say may put together a rally in the near future with the National Socialist Movement. The CCC event had been announced months ago, but it was only recently that the location was published on one of their websites.

The Conference boasts a slate of speakers that are considered conference regulars. CCC member and author Brent Nelson. Col. Robert Slimp, and lawyer Sam Dickson, who once represented Daniel “KKK Guy” Carver from the Howard Stern Wack Pack, will be among those regulars speaking. In addition Minuteman and CCC member Joe McCutchen will also be on hand to speak at the conference.

Co-hosting the event will be actor Sonny Landham, who has appeared in 48 Hrs., Predator, The Warriors and a string of porn films in the seventies. He is a new member of the CCC and has been very active particularly around the issue of immigration.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Tough-guy actor and Senate hopeful Sonny Landham on Thursday repeated anti-Arab comments similar to those he made a day earlier on an Internet radio program.

The man who appeared in such movies as “48 Hours” and “Predator” is running as a Libertarian for a U.S. Senate seat from Kentucky. He said he’s gathered more than enough petition signatures to earn a spot on the November ballot to oppose Republican incumbent Mitch McConnell and Democrat Bruce Lunsford.

Landham was unapologetic Thursday for comments he made disparaging Arabs. He also said he would support blocking Arabs from entering this country to visit, attend school or to seek American citizenship. He accuses Arab countries of waging economic terrorism against the U.S. by allowing oil prices to reach record-high levels.

The imam, or spiritual leader, of the Islamic Center of Lexington says Landham’s comments are “irresponsible.” But Mahmoud Shalash says he doubts anyone else will agree with Landham.

Senate Candidate Makes Anti-Arab Remarks
Sonny Landham, the actor-turned-U.S. Senate candidate, says he opposes Arabs visiting the United States and believes the U.S. should have bombed Saudi Arabia, Syria, Iran, and Afghanistan.

In an interview with the Associated Press, Landham refused to distance himself from similar remarks made Wednesday on the Internet radio program ‘The Weekly Filibuster,’ and added more remarks about Arabs.

Landham said he didn’t want Arabs attending American schools or applying for American citizenship. As for Arab-Americans, Landham said if they show allegiance to the United States, they should be treated the same as anyone else.

Landham is the Libertarian candidate for the U.S. Senate in Kentucky, running against Senator Mitch McConnell, the Republican, and Democrat Bruce Lunsford. The state’s Libertarian chairman, Ken Moellman, distanced himself from Landham’s remarks. The spiritual leader of a Lexington Islamic Center called them ‘irresponsible’ and ‘strange.’

    inDglass,

    You know that Barrett comes dangerously close to denying the Holocaust, right? “Socially tolerant” and “maybe David Irving is right” do not go hand in hand.

  2. G.E. G.E. July 26, 2008

    “Maybe he thought that the initiation of force oath only applied in situations where the other people didn’t have anything you wanted.”

    He should join the Green Party!

    🙂

    I’m not equating Barrett with Landham, only noting that both are drags on the party and both deserve to be un-endorsed by their respective affiliates. Real parties generally vet candidates before endorsing them, so I see no reason to hold the LP to any sort of a different standard.

    But what do you expect when some activists feel it necessary to open a World’s Smallest Political Quiz booth at gun shows and the like. “Oh, he may be a crazy racist reactionary, but he supports property rights, the gold standard, and the Second Amendment. He’s OK in my book.”

    Yeah, and those “Stato” guys who actually put forth serious policy to move the country in a more libertarian direction, they’re the assholes; not the Paul campaigners who willingly accept support from Stormfronters, bash immigrants, and refuse to use the term “libertarian.” And “…but they’re good on the Constitution” is the best defense these idiots can come up with when someone in the media sheds light on their scumbag associates? Truly mind-blowing political ineptitude…

    If Sonny signed the LP non-initiation of force oath, was that fraudulent?

    Please, please, please, find a way to revoke his membership. We need to cut and run from this guy… yesterday. I don’t really want to find out which ethnic group he targets next.

    Richard Winger indicated that there is. If I understood LPKY Chair Ken Moellman’s email as relayed by a commenter here, they are working on approving this formally – I’m not sure if the bureaucracy he was referring to was state government, LPKY or both.

  6. Mike Gillis Mike Gillis July 26, 2008

    So is there any movement at all to revoke that nomination?

  7. paulie cannoli paulie cannoli Post author | July 26, 2008

    I’m with inDglass on this.

    I interviewed Kevin Barrett on my show last week and he seemed pretty responsive to libertarian topics I brought up, like the connection between economic and personal liberties. He’s far from perfect but he is better than many libertarians I have seen. I certainly would not categorize him with Landham. While he may not agree with you on every issue of economy or regulation, he is very socially tolerant. Landham isn’t even racially tolerant. That is a whole different category.

    I agree with whoever it was that said that adding an E and two T’s to Barr’s name would make him more libertarian.

  9. G.E. G.E. July 26, 2008

    I don’t know if what Sean Haugh did in reference to Kevin Barrett is appropriate or part of his job description, and if it isn’t, it’s yet another fireable offense for which Redpath has proven to be a worthless eunuch.

    But Barrett is a horrible, horrible candidate. Not only does he not get libertarianism at all, he is a Muslim supremacist. He not only discredits libertarianism, but the anti-war movement in general with his calls for a fatwa — at least that’s how I’ve interpreted it and his campaign hasn’t denied it — against people speaking out against Iran. Sonny Landham doesn’t support property rights for Arabs and Barrett doesn’t support free speech for non-Muslims. They both should be firmly rejected.

    Listening now. Sonny sounds drunk, senile or both.

    Landham, Barrett and the Nutty Wing of the LP types will always be with us unfortunately.

    I don’t see Barrett as being in the same category. He has some socialist views, but the issues he emphasizes are the ones where he agrees with the LP. He’s also very articulate – nothing like Landham.


    Donors should not waste their time and LP affiliates need to step up to the plate and shut these guys down before they get started. Just because we’re small doesn’t mean we need to play the game like amateurs. Declaring yourself a “Libertarian” should not automatically equal a party endorsement or tacit acceptance.

    I agree.


    I defended Sean Haugh’s statements on Barrett and I hope LP national takes a harsh stance on Landham.

    I agree on the second part. 31 months in federal prison for domestic violence, membership in the CCC (white collar KKK) and repeated public displays of ignorance are not anything any political party that wants to be taken seriously should want to be associated with.


    If that requote was in response to my message, I don’t find that small mention of Moellman “distancing himself” to be nearly sufficient.

    For his part, Ken Moellman wrote me back, saying:

    “Bureaucracy takes a little time. In progress. Ky is a bit slow on action. Will be resolved. ”

    I’m going to take a wild guess: Moellman is probably being deluged with inquiries, some polite and some not so polite, from press and LP members about this. If he is like most state chairs, especially in relatively smaller states, he is a volunteer and not used to or prepared for dealing with this sort of thing. His state bylaws might even be an issue. I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt that he is not going to stand by Landham.


    I had some suggestions on what could have been done in the meantime. It only takes two people (Kentucky people, ideally) to start “Libertarians Against Landham”. And they wouldn’t need to wait for any bureaucracy. And what about other LP candidates in the state? I don’t see why they would be bound by any bureaucracy.

    I agree. I’m not in KY, but if you or someone else want to start Libertarians Against Landham, I’ll give it my endorsement.

Regardless of what people think about disbanding LPHQ in DC, which would be a huge mistake (full disclosure: I’m former LNC staff), you have to realize that having a full-time central operation has its advantages, like being able to disavow the complete crazies when need be.

    I lose concentration whenever he goes on his rants.
    My crazy, rascist, old Uncle Nick makes more sense than this guy!

  15. Fred Church Ortiz Fred Church Ortiz July 25, 2008

    Yeah the guy’s kinda incoherent on top of his bigotry, I can’t even tell what his point is.

  16. sunshinebatman sunshinebatman July 25, 2008

    I found it interesting that he called Bush and Cheney terrorists in that same statement. (He has common ground there with Irish Muslim LP candidate Kevin Barrett. ) Someone should call in and ask him about that too.

  18. Lance Brown Lance Brown July 25, 2008

    I doubt that talking to Sonny is going to do much good. I just sent a message to state chair Ken Moellman to tell him to get control of this situation, and publicly disavow Landham’s behavior. They should have taken action on this days ago.

  19. Mike Theodore Mike Theodore July 25, 2008

    Just called in, and I was about to give him a follow up, but they cut me off.
    Christ I was nervous, listen to it if you want to hear a jittery, shuddery voice. 😀
