Democrat Fact Check: Delusional Dems?

September 19, 2007

Isn’t it a tad ironic that Oklahoma Democrats would insinuate the Republican Party is a party of criminals? Are they expecting us to just forget about notable Democrats such as David Walters, Gene Stipe, Carroll Fisher, and Jeff McMahan? Read more…

ODP Chooses Homosexuals Over Veterans?

August 10, 2007

According to okdemocrat.com, veterans were promised their new organization would be considered a federation instead a club within the ODP. Apparently, federation status would give them representation on the Central Committee. Seems at the last minute there was a change of heart from the powers that be:

“Unfortunately there was a bit of confusion concernign (sp) the actual federation, which puts a representative on the Central Committee. After conferring with several people more experienced than Ivan and myself, we discovered that the approval of by-laws will give you officials club status, but not make you a federation.”

One veteran contacted us and said he can’t believe his party would “outright” lie to veterans like this. “They’d rather give federation status to a bunch of gays, instead of to real men who fought for their country. Incredible!”

Ivan the Terrible, or Terrible Reporting?

May 31, 2007

The blogosphere is abuzz with stories regarding “turmoil” at the Oklahoma Democratic Party. But according to well-placed sources, much of what has been reported is simply not true. Much of the speculation surrounds the agenda of new party Chairman Dr. Ivan Holmes.

Reports have indicated that Holmes’ election signaled a rise to power by the “radical fringe element” within the party. Those who know Holmes, including Republicans, tell the Oklahoma Political News Service that Holmes’ election actually signals a turn away from the extremists who have run the party in the past.

Other errors include reports that Holmes campaigned for a trio of extreme resolutions at the party convention and that he was unaware that some party employees he has fired were funded by the Democratic National Committee. “Just bad reporting,” a source tells us.

Another source tells OKPNS that it appears some bloggers have been fed misinformation in an effort to undermine Holmes, since Holmes has pledged to give voice back to the mainstream grassroots Democrats. “It appears he’s angered the extremists with first his upset victory, and then his house cleaning, and it is the extremists who are manipulating the bloggers to trip him up,” the source says.

Turmoil Strikes Oklahoma Democratic Party…

May 29, 2007

From McCarville Report Online:

The Oklahoma Democratic Party appears to be in turmoil today, with the forced resignations of three staff members and some potential major donors said to be reluctant to help fund the administration of new Chairman Ivan Holmes.

Word of the turmoil comes a few weeks after Holmes won the chairmanship in a surprise over Norman attorney Ben Odom, the outgoing vice chairman, in what one party source described as a victory for the “radical fringe element” of the party. Read more…

More Kumbaya, Touchy Feely BS From ODP

May 16, 2007

“We hope to spread knowledge and create a greater since of tolerance” – ODP Chair Lisa Pryor

Chairman Pryor is still apparently not supervising or proof reading the interns work on the Blue Note Blog. The word is sense not since by they way. The above quote – with misspelled word and all – is taken from a post highlighting an “interdenominational faith service” the ODP is sponsoring this Sunday. Here’s an excerpt:

“It will bring together readings from the New Testament and the Koran, as well as Hebrew scripture and Buddhist prayer and meditation. There will also be live music and a reading from a Dr. Martin Luther King sermon.”

Just as we wrote awhile back, the Dems are the real masters of wedge politics, and this is just another prime example. We’re sure the good ‘ol boys in Little Dixie are thrilled about their party embracing Buddhist prayers and Koran readings!

More Shameless Democratic Pandering

March 12, 2007
The Democratic Party “diversity” dog and pony show – with its agenda of making us all hyphenated Americans – will be on full display tomorrow at a reception in Oklahoma City.

This event is so hysterically politically correct, they won’t even call the people they’re honoring Iranians; they’re calling them Persians instead. The name Persia hasn’t been on a world map since 1935 when the Shah changed the country’s name to Iran.

What are the Democrats afraid of? Do they believe good Democrats won’t attend the event if its called an Iranian-American meet and greet? Pathetic! Below is the invitation:

Get to know your Persian-American neighbors and their culture
while enjoying some middle eastern delicacy including Baklava.
Lisa Pryor, Oklahoma Democratic Party Chairman along with the Oklahoma Democratic Party Affirmative Action Committee, the Oklahoma Democratic Party Veterans Committee and the Oklahoma Democratic Party Faith Outreach Committee Cordially invite you to a

“Neighbor to Neighbor” Meet and Greet with our local Persian-American community.

Come hear about the social, cultural, political and economic development contributions of this local community and learn about their faith and heritage.
