Extreme-right-wing Congressional candidate David Jolly, infamous Washington lobbyist for big oil and special interests who was too ashamed to admit it so he lied to constituents, has positions that are even too extreme for many on the right, including:
- Privatizing Social Security
- Eliminating Medicare and turning it into a voucher program
- Eliminating Obamacare and giving the power over our health care back to big insurance
- He played an active role in efforts to make our military veterans pay up to 500% more for health care
- Supports reversing women’s reproductive rights by overturning Roe v. Wade
- Opposes a pathway to citizenship in immigration reform
- Against marriage equality
- Refuses to believe in climate change
- Supports the U.S. attacking Syria
- Lobbied to expand offshore oil drilling in the Gulf and elsewhere. But now he lies and says he did not lobby for big oil (Then return all the money you made lobbying for big oil!).
Now, extremist David Jolly is desperate to win at any cost in Florida’s March 11th special election for District 13. Jolly has sunk so low that he’s claiming Democrat Alex Sink is a bigot based on these statements she made at their recent debate (my emphasis):
Immigration reform is important in our country. It’s one of the main agenda items of the beaches’ chamber of commerce, for obvious reasons, because we have a lot of employers over on the beaches that rely upon workers, and especially in this high-growth environment, where are you going to get people to work to clean our hotel rooms or do our landscaping? And we don’t need to put those employers in a position of hiring undocumented and illegal workers.
I believe that the Senate came together in a bipartisan way to forge a solution. It was a very tough negotiation, and Sen. Marco Rubio was a participant in that, and one of the leaders, and members of his own party has even come against him. For every example that you hear, I think about the high school valedictorian — I believe he lives in this district now. High school valedictorian.
He was brought here when he was a young man, 9 or 10 years old. He didn’t choose to come here. His parents brought him. He was undocumented. And what does he do? How does he get an education? He did everything right. He became an incredible student. He even eventually ended up going to law school and becoming a lawyer. But right now he can’t practice law because of his undocumented status. That’s not right. We need to bring these people out of the shadows so that they’re paying into Social Security, paying into Medicare, paying federal income taxes, so that they’re not security issues. But they have to earn their way. So we need immigration reform and I would definitely join with Democrats and Republicans in the House and pass immigration reform as soon as possible.
Did you catch it? NO. Because there’s nothing there. But extremist David Jolly’s response was right out of the Karl Rove playbook of reversing the facts (or making shit up):
I think Alex Sink’s comments reflect a bigotry that should disqualify her from representing the people of this community and should disqualify her from serving in the United States Congress. She offended immigrants throughout this community, she offended non-immigrant workers. She offended business owners. She offended every American that believes in the equality of people regardless of race, creed or color. I think it was a disgusting comment.
When asked about Marco Rubio’s nearly identical statement on Meet the Press in 2013 …
I am not in favor of a housekeeper or a landscaper crossing the border illegally.
extremist David Jolly punted:
I don’t know the full context of what he said. I know the full context of what Alex Sink said.
I never get tired of these rich, pampered, white men from the teabag party of racists lecturing the nation on bigotry. You would think most people could see right through the pathetic manipulation at play here, by this wealthy lobbyist with ties to the super rich and special interests, designed to gin-up the teabag party’s white, male base and get-out-the-vote.
Charging Alex Sink with a bogus charge of “bigotry” is desperate and disgusting, and Jolly owes Sink an apology. But for extremist David Jolly, its just one more lie in a series of lies. Watch-out Florida; you could be stuck with this lying, manipulative fool.
