Post subject:  National Young Republicans Convention - July 2009

Team Huck has a booth at the National Young Republican's Convention this week in Indianapolis. Below is a blog from the first day that I am posting on the Huck PAC website. Thought I would share here as well!

********************************

Greetings from the National Young Republican’s Convention in Indianapolis!

Today was the first day of the convention and we have already met many Huck supporters! It is very reassuring to talk to young people who are excited about Gov. Huckabee and want to promote conservative candidates. One young man from Texas told us how he had actually met the Governor and how impressed he was! Several have asked if the Governor will be here and are disappointed when we tell them “no.”

RNC Chairman Michael Steele is in town and will be speaking tonight at an Indiana GOP dinner and will also hold a reception at a local steak house later this evening for the young republicans. Other planned speakers this week include: Pat Toomey (Pennsylvania Senate Candidate), Mike Pence (Indiana Congressman), Todd Rokita (Indiana Sec of State), Margaret Hoover (Fox News), Ken Blackwell, Brad White (Mississippi GOP party chair), Rich Lowrey (National Review), and Ryan Frazier (Colorado Senate candidate).
Volunteers from Team Huck will be adding comments as the week progresses.

Wish you were here!

Thanks for the info! Puerto Rico??!?! Is that a red state? :shock: The convention itself is already $200 plus hotel. Isn't that bad enough, without requiring everyone to fly to the Caribbean??!? We'll just go to the Leadership Institute instead. http://www.TheLeadershipInstitute.org

So is the new Chairperson a racist? Brilliant way to recruit young and talented minorities into the GOP......

Young Republican Leader Audra Shay Is Crazy, Illiterate, Racist
38-year-old Young Republican leader Audra Shay got in some trouble for lol-ing at racism. She is standing tough, though! So it is time to go back and find all the other crazy in her Facebook feed, for our own lulz.

The story, as of Monday: a Facebook friend of Audra commented, "obama bin lauden is the new terrorist....muslim is on there side .....need to take this country back from all these mad coons.......and illegals." And Audra responded: "You tell em Eric! lol."

Audra unfriended some people who complained about her reaction, but not racist Eric himself. And then the internet heard about it. But Audra is still running to be chairwoman of the Young Republicans. And John Avlon at The Daily Beast has tracked down all the other examples of Audra's Facebook nuttiness.

The weird and sad thing is that everything she writes is utterly crazy and deranged, but it is so within the current bounds of acceptable political discourse that we are like "why is she worse than Jim DeMint, again?" But here you go, here is the crazy:

In October 2008, in the wake of news that an effigy of Sarah Palin was being hung outside an affluent Hollywood home as an offensive Halloween decoration, Shay replied, returning to the "LOL" style that she employed after the "coons" comment: "What no ‘Obama in a noose? Come on now, its just freedome (sic) of speech, no one in Atlanta would take that wrong! Lol."

Posting and endorsing a conspiracy theory video that attempts to prove that Obama believes he can only "ensure his own salvation" and "fate" if he helps African-Americans above whites, complete with Barnum-esque captions ("LISTEN AS HE ATTACKS WHITE PEOPLE").

And so on! And she will still probably win her campaign for chairwoman of the Young Republicans. None of these crazy comments disqualifies her from leading them, because this is already what old Republicans say, openly, on TV and on the radio, all the time. So, good luck, Audra Shay. You certainly do represent the future of the Republican party!

Unfortunately she is and she did win. I supported the team running against her and so did Sarah Huckabee.

That's sad, if it's true. I have my doubts. I think there may be more to the story. And Audra has responded to the critics. Candidates oftentimes make political hey, or embellish stories, in order to win. To me it sounds like her oppenents are trying to paint her as a racist. What happened was she responded to one comment about illegals, and then another comment was made by the same user, which was racist, and she just didn't delete it. But there's no way to prove it now, because her facebook page is gone.
