As you may know, the Neshoba County Fair starts this weekend. Because of what has transpired with the recent Senate primary and runoff, we now have a Republican party that is severely fractured. These two elections were unethical at best and full of illegal activity at worst.
The worst thing the Tea Party could do right now is be silent or complicit at a major political event such as the Neshoba County Fair.
Here is some advice from one of our members..
“We must get some of our people together and make up some homemade posters and confront Cochran and Bryant! The entire state media, TV, papers, Supertalk radio, will be there, broadcasting live and recording. Posters need to say things like “Fire Phil”, “Primary Phil 2015”, “Cochran + Barbour = VOTER FRAUD”, “Vote Buying is Illegal”, etc. You get the point. If we don’t show grassroots disgust with what and how they just stole an election for Cochran, then the story will be what a wonderful lovefest Thad, Haley, Phil, Delbert and Pickering had at the Neshoba County Fair as united strong Republican conservatives! Either we show up there, and everyone will need a day ticket to get in which is $15 at the door, or the story will be that a giant harmonious love-fest was had by all state Republican leaders and Thad.”
My favorite part of the quote was this….”We have come too far at great sacrifice to default to these crooks and thieves at this point, I think…”
The South MS Tea Party agrees and we urge you all to make a special effort to attend the Neshoba County Fair. We understand that Thad Cochran is actually scheduled to speak this year, which is the first time since 1997. What a coincidence.
