#ncga: Does Jamie Boles REALLY deserve Lowell Simon?

 

Moore’s Republican legislator, like our president, is  being forced to deal with loons from the other party screaming nonsense at him.

 

 

I have to admit — Jamie Boles is a nice guy, but very frustrating.  He could afford to be more conservative — and more consistent with the party platform — in Raleigh (if he wanted to).  But Jamie has made the decision to tag along on the coattails of David Lewis and Tim Moore.

 

In spite of that,  I don’t wish Lowell Simon on ANYBODY — especially Mr. Boles. Lowell Simon is — to put it nicely — an uninformed blithering babbler.  He took on Boles in 2018 and got his clock cleaned.  Now, he’s apparently kicking off his 2020 rematch with the 11-year veteran of the House.

 

Simon reportedly IDs himself as an entrepreneur and a teacher of our children.  Recently, on Facebook,  Simon attacked a gentleman named Clarence Henderson on Facebook, alleging he — Simon — knew more about the civil rights struggle and racism than Henderson did.  The problem?

 

Henderson, who happens to be black, was one of the participants in the historic Woolworth’s lunch counter sit-in in Greensboro.  He’s NOW a diehard Republican.  Henderson got food dumped on him and was assaulted while simply trying to have lunch.  (*And Lowell Simon knows more than Henderson does.*)

 

You have to empathize with liberals who show their lack of knowledge about the 1960s civil rights struggle. Most of them believe MLK did it ALL BY HIMSELF.  They don’t know what to think when guys like Henderson come on the scene.

 

I used to work with Dr. James Meredith, whose claim to fame was being pelted with bottles and bricks while simply trying to register as the first black student at the University of Mississippi.  He is now a devout conservative Republican.   I’ll never forget lefties like Simon mocking Meredith.  (Meredith, like Henderson, stepped off the liberal plantation.  And both are going to be made to pay for it.)

 

In addition to all that,  Simon has run to The Pilot to babble about House Republicans, including Boles, “disrespecting” 9-11 by overriding Roy Cooper’s veto of the budget that day.  Liberals like Simon disrespect our military’s fight against terrorism on an almost daily basis.  They’ve threatened to cut off financing to our troops in the field of battle in the Middle  East.

 

 

 Even the drive-by media has dismissed this “disrespecting 9-11” crap — pointing out that only Roy Cooper and ONE Democrat legislator were at 9-11 ceremonies that day.  Most other Democrat legislators were in the building.

 

The “disrespecting 9-11” spin has been discredited,  but that didn’t stop Simon from running to our money-bleeding local paper, and said money-bleeding local paper from transcribing his nonsense and disseminating it to their shrinking pool of readers.

  1. I could not agree more.

    It is my opinion that the man I call Simple Simon is waste of time – Except in the following regard:

    He is the perfect guy to show people what a TRUE Democrat believes and how one acts.

    He is draining the minorities in Moore County dry and playing the NAACP like a fiddle. Typical Democrat.

    I am glad he’s running. If I were Jamie I would not spend a nickel on Simon. I want to see Jamie defeated. However – I want to see him defeated by his well qualified conservative Republican opponent.

  2. Brant,
    I enjoy reading your column, although I don’t agree with much (except that Jamie Boles needs to go). I’m OK with the name-calling and innuendo. However I would ask you to keep your facts straight.
    First, here’s the ACTUAL interchange with Mr. Henderson and me;
    “Clarence Henderson: Lowell Simon what a twisted imagination you have. How deep did you have to go to come up with this conclusion. First of all I know Miriam Chu and we have worked closely together in the past and for as long as I have known her she has worked for freedom, liberty and justice for all.”
    “Lowell Simon: Mr. Henderson – does Miriam work alone? That was a pretty impressive project for one woman. I have suggested numerous times that it may have been unintentional. Sometimes people get excited about their own ideas and aren’t aware of how others feel about something they said or did. If that has not happened to you, you are lucky and have lived a charmed life. But for us humans, we sometimes do or say something that we didn’t intend to be taken the way someone we care about may understand it. If she really cares then she would feel badly about how it affected some others instead of talking about what was in her own head. That is called sensitivity and it seems to be in short supply for some folks.”
    To imply that I claimed to know more about racism than Mr. Henderson has zero basis in fact.

    Second, I did not “go running to The Pilot.” They called me. I did run an ad because I believe the public should be informed (as I think you do). But let’s get the facts right. You actually put the word “disrespecting” in quotes in a sentence about me. That word does not even appear in the ad or the article. My point has always been that it doesn’t matter where the Democrats were. I make no claim to know for certain where they were. What we do know is that the Republicans took a vote when they thought no one was looking, that they knew NC was pretty well split on this issue and they acted like they have some kind of mandate when they only got 49.5% of the votes.
    An “uniformed blithering babbler” – really?
