McCain-Backed GOP Senate Candidate Carly Fiorina Hearts Jesse Jackson

McCain-backed GOP Senate candidate Carly Fiorina hearts Jesse Jackson — and radical gender politics

H/t Michelle Malkin

As if California GOP Senate candidate Carly Fiorina’s massive bailout-supporting economic advice for John McCain wasn’t bad enough (reminder from yesterday’s column: “In California, McCain’s PAC supports former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina – a celebrity name with deep pockets of her own, massive media exposure, and a checkered business record. Fiorina served as the economic adviser to McCain, who supported the $700 billion TARP bailout, the $25 billion auto bailout, a $300 billion mortgage bailout, and the first $85 billion AIG bailout.”), now comes the revelation of that she has had a long political love affair with Jesse Jackson.

It’s on tape, via Neil Stevens of RedState:

“When Carly Fiorina speaks on the campaign trail here in California, running to be the Republican nominee to unseat Barbara Boxer, she tries to prohibit recording of her speeches. However somebody snuck in an audio recorder to an event yesterday, and these clips seem to show why she would do that. The real, private Carly seems to be a bit different from the public, ‘conservative’ Carly.”

Listen for yourselves as she coos about “the Reverend Jesse Jackson” and panders to gender quota-mongers at a women’s conference held last week:

Carly Fiorina praises Jackson and the Rainbow Coalition


Carly Fiorina: Radical Feminist

Philip Klein at the American Spectator has a partial transcript :

“And I thought about something that the Reverend Jesse Jackson said to me several years ago. He very graciously came to the offices of Hewlett Packard to visit me, because we were doing some work together for his Rainbow Coalition. And he said to me, ‘You know, Carly, every game is better when everybody gets to play.’ And I thought it was such a great way of describing why everything is better when all people, regardless of color or nationality or gender, get to play. Sports are better. Business is better. Politics are better. The world is better when everybody gets to play in things that matter.”

Fiorina continues to cast herself as a “mainstream conservative.” But what exactly is “mainstream” or “conservative” about heaping praise on one of this country’s greediest and unrepentant race hustlers?

Jackson has repeatedly threatened businesses and corporations, black and white, with boycotts, racially biased criticism, and (implicitly) outright violence, if they refused to enrich him or his organizations. Among the companies: Coca-Cola, Texaco, Viacom, AT&T, Boeing, and Coors. In addition, his organizations have received at least $50 million from the U.S. government.


Wild Thing's comment..........

Don't you just love these people that are NOT conservatives and then go and call themselves just that.

I am so tired of their lies. McCain being one of the biggest and apparently Carly not far behind. These people scream bipartisan; when what they are doing is prostituting themselves at our expense to the other side. They really need to go.

She also engaged in hijinx with Deutsche Bank to get them to vote with her against Bill Hewlett’s son. The deal was to promise DB investment banking work for their vote. Thank God HP dumped her and the other broad who broke the law. The current CEO is a good guy and knows his stuff.

....Thank you Mark for sending this to me.

Sports are better when everybody gets to play? No, sports are better when only the best play.

Yes Carly, diversity in all fields is better, but not when the "diverse players" are crooks, thieves and non-diverse themselves.

Besides her bogus "diversity" mantra, Carly Fiorina is notorious for what she did at Hewlett-Packard when she was CEO.

She is trying to position herself as another Meg Whitman (Former CEO of EBay running for Governor out here), but she is anything but.

The only real GOP candidate for Senate here is Chuck DeVore.

No not everybody can hurl a 90 mile per hour fastball and not everybody can play at that level. If we lower the standards then there is no competition.

Case in point. During this past weekend Peyton Manning was stymied by the NY Jets. During the second half, he started calling his own plays, he'd change them at the line. He was seeing things on the field the coaches in the booth weren't seeing, so he played his game and they shredded the vaunted Jets defense. Not too many quarterbacks can do that and the ones who can you can count on one hand. This is the downfall of this Diversity crap. Each generation has their Unitas's and thats it. Some things just can't be taught.

This diversity Bullshit destroys competition in sports and business. This is the progressive view. Where everybody is equal. Sorry not everybody is equal. This is what has made this country what it is. The leaders have excelled and risen to the top and lead this country to greatness. Not some schmuck from Podunk, Anywhere USA.

Carly Fiorina is a progressive, Republican or Democrat don't matter they have infected both parties with their disease. McCain and Graham are two of the worst now they can add one more.
