The Republican Establishment is running scared. Make no mistake about it. The evidence is emerging with tricks aimed at Senator Chris McDaniel.
Even though he has yet to announce a run against Senator Roger Wicker, they are already beginning to ping him with dirty tactics from their leftwing playbook.
The first trick is the emergence of Internet trolls who are trolling conservative websites, like Mississippi Conservative Daily, with negative and often nasty comments and lies about McDaniel. And some of these comments are on news articles that are at least four months old.
Here is one from a consistent MCD troll, Bill Smith, who is NOT a native Mississippian:
“Sen. McDaniel, like the trial lawyer he is, practices demagoguery. His appeals are not to facts or reason but to prejudice and visceral emotions. Like those who use definitions as suits them a conservative is someone who agrees with him and a liberal is anyone, including conservative Republicans who disagree with him. Like the political tradition to which he belongs, he knows how to blow the dog whistle and the dogs come running as can be observed by anyone who follows him on facebook.”
The other trick is a recent sighting of anti-Confederate signs placed near the Confederate memorial on the courthouse lawn in Laurel. The signs seem to point directly at Senator McDaniel, either as the author of the signs or the target of them:
Be wary of such shenanigans. They may emerge else where in the state. If you see any dirty tricks, please inform us at MCD – firstname.lastname@example.org!
But we can take solace in one thing: They are afraid of Chris McDaniel. If they are doing this now, we got ’em on the ropes!
Stay vigilant and stay tuned in to Mississippi Conservative Daily!
