Pseudo-Republican Blogger Joins Leftists in Attacking Senator Chris McDaniel

By Ryan S. Walters

Alan Lange, the founder of Y’all Politics, a Mississippi blog created to support Republicans, has stooped to a new low.  Despite the fact that his blog has been used as a promotional tool for Republican officials and candidates, Lange has made it clear that he’d rather spend his time attacking his fellow Republicans, especially those that are true conservatives, than he has pushing back against Democrats.

And this has become a pattern as of late. All members of the Republican Establishment, Lange included, spend far more time attacking conservatives than they do liberals. We saw this first hand during Obama’s tenure, as GOP leaders said far worse about conservatives than they ever did about the President.

I guess this makes some sense when you consider the fact that it’s currently Mississippi Republicans joining Democrats in pushing for every kind of tax increase they can think of, including an Internet sales tax.  But, on the issue at hand, Lange is attacking those like Senator McDaniel who are fighting to protect the unborn.

In his Y’all Politics rant yesterday, Lange lamented the fact that McDaniel’s recent Facebook comments directed at the DC “Women’s March” succeeded in “pissing off ‘liberal’ Democrats,” which, given Lange’s support of Thad Cochran and the Barbour race-baiting campaign in 2014 against McDaniel, makes perfect sense. It’s not good politics to hack off a big portion of your political base, which has become a key to their coalition, because the Establishment-Lange-Barbour junta may need liberal Democrats again in the future to steal another election from a conservative.

But in attacking Senator McDaniel, Lange has, either wittingly or in complete ignorance, sided with national liberal activists, especially on the issue of abortion. This group of women, who, no doubt, strongly believes in what they are doing, use the most vulgar of methods to get their points across, such as dressing up like vaginas, wearing pink hats meant to represent the most intimate part of female genitalia (one wonders if Alan wears one), uses extremely filthy language such as the F-word, which a decent parent would not want their children exposed to (yet some brought young children), and discussed such cosmopolitan topics as tampons, incest, and blowing up the White House.

One speaker at the event was Donna Hylton, who spoke on behalf of women of color, was a participant in the kidnapping, rape, and torture of a gay man in 1985.  Her victim was burned, starved, brutalized for a period of 15 to 20 days and held for ransom days before he died.  Yet Hylton casts herself as a victim of oppression but I will cast her as a true “nasty woman.”

These views, as well as the methods for espousing them, I would dare say are not representative of most American women and certainly not conservative Republican women.

Consider two polling numbers: In one 2015 survey, 82 percent of Americans do not consider themselves feminists, while 53 percent of white women in 2016 voted for Donald Trump, who was certainly not Lange’s candidate (he supported all the Establishment candidates that were crushed one after another). With a majority refusing to support a fellow white woman, it can be reasonably argued that women put Trump in the White House.

Yet McDaniel’s larger point was not feminism but fiscal in nature. Many of these activists want “free stuff” from the government. They want taxpayer-funded abortions as well as birth control, which has a cost-free mandate in Obamacare. So Senator McDaniel, as he’s always done, was looking out for American taxpayers, who would have to pay for these services, even though they are not all in agreement with those values. What these women want can really be seen as a form of fiscal extortion, which would certainly be unconstitutional, as well as unjust.

McDaniel also pointed out that some in the crowds had a variety of tattoos and piercings (which Lange disparagingly called “ink” and “metal” while he had criticized McDaniel for being disparaging), which can cost a lot of money, but they somehow managed to fly all the way to Washington from around the country to participate in the march. Yet they want taxpayers to pay for their abortions and birth control. His main point was that people should pay for their own services, not force taxpayers to do so. But Lange was either oblivious to this point, or solidly on the side of leftwing activists.

Mississippi is a very pro-life state, owing to our strong Christian morals, traditional values that Senator McDaniel fought for in his campaign against Thad Cochran.  Supporting life has long been a cornerstone in the platform of the GOP and in electing Republicans both in Mississippi and nationally.

But Lange and the Establishment that he seeks to prop up, including those featured on his site (like Delbert Hosemann, Tate “Tater” Reeves, Stacy “Garage Door” Pickering and others) are so focused on protecting their own power over the state that he is actually supporting the position of national liberal activists and pro-choice supporters in attacking Mississippi’s strongest conservative senator.

And make no mistake, Chris McDaniel is Mississippi’s strongest conservative. No one in Mississippi, and I stress NO ONE, has fought harder to implement a true conservative agenda than Senator Chris McDaniel, who was recently named National Conservative of the Year by the American Conservative Union for his efforts to promote conservative values.

So why would Alan Lange attack McDaniel? Because Lange is not a conservative and never has been. He has joined with the most fanatical liberals across the country to attack a Mississippi State Senator, even though more than 95 percent of the attacks on McDaniel via his Facebook page, as well as on Mississippi Conservative Daily, have come from out of state, and many of those from the great liberal bastions around the country.

So why do it? Alan Lange, “Fourth Place” Frank Corder (who I’ve already exposed as a charlatan that tried to join McDaniel’s US Senate campaign in 2013, then provided information to the campaign throughout 2014), and Y’all Politics have a terrible affliction. It’s called MDS – McDaniel Derangement Syndrome, a debilitating condition, much like Bush Derangement Syndrome and Trump Derangement Syndrome, that causes them to get hysterical and foam at the mouth at the mere thought of Chris McDaniel, who they once named the TOP rising star in Mississippi politics. In carrying out this attack they have only served to show us who they really are – false Republicans, pseudo-conservatives, and purveyors of leftwing, big government orthodoxy.

  1. We want Chris McDaniel to know that there are thousands of people backing you, and one that is behind you all the way is the Creator of this universe!! God is on your side , Chris, and we are too!! Stand in there and don’t let these liberal leftists influence you from doing what is right! The only one that matters is what God thinks, not these low lifes that are so deceived!!

  2. Hey Ryan: To be sure, Senator McDaniels holds strong views. However, the existence of a “Christian Collectivist Community” (CCC) which seeks to dominate the thoughts of its members, and the social policies of our political system at all levels of governance is hard to ignore. This is especially true when it comes to the natural and fundamental right of all women to seek out, and to receive safe/effective abortion/reproductive healthcare. Senator McDaniels and others like him just don’t get it. His position is not that of a conservative. Rather, he and other members of the CCC would have the State over-regulate and interfere in in an effort to obstruct women from receiving effective reproductive healthcare services. No wonder that Democrats accuse Republicans like Senator McDaniels of prosecuting a War Against Women.

    Charles Koch once stated correctly the danger of a growing “Collectivism” in America. The following quote reflects in pertinent part his underlying philosophy on the matter:

    “Instead of encouraging free and open debate, collectivists strive to discredit and intimidate opponents. They engage in character assassination. * * * Such tactics are the antithesis of what is required for a free society—and a telltale sign that the collectivists do not have good answers.”

    Although Mr. Koch made his observations mainly in the defense of his company business model versus government over-regulation, the same can certainly hold true with respect to the efforts of the CCC. Over the years, it’s members have sought to impose their own personal brand of moral authority on everyone in their misbegotten efforts to transform post-religious America into a “most Christian” nation–a Christian Collective Community, as Charles Koch might say.

    Jesus admonished his followers to focus in 3 areas: 1) seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness; 2) love the Lord your God; and 3) love your neighbor. Therefore, as inerrantists, I respectfully suggest that if members of the Christian Collectivist Community would focus and spend their time and efforts on these kingdom duties, then matters of sexual orientation and abortion would be the least of any member’s, church’s, association’s or convention’s concern. After all, the love of Jesus represents the new covenant with God and the fulfillment of the Law.

    To be sure, religion affects culture, and culture affects the law. No one understands this phenomenon better than leaders of the CCC. Therefore, if America is to continue its post-religious development in an effort to promote the natural and fundamental rights of everyone, the CCC must be acknowledged and dealt with accordingly. After all, its outspoken members are merely the lint that clings to the fringe which surrounds the base that surrounds the Republican Party base.

  3. Wow! I disagree with everybody. I usually agree with Alan, but what he wrote at Y’all was a near hysterical rant. Hurts the cause in MS. I disagree with David who keeps up his illogical contention that abortion is a conservative value. And, though he acknowledges he left Christianity long ago, he keeps telling Christians what their faith is and what it required of them. I disagree with that guy above who assured God is on Chris’ side.! I wonder how God told him this as I am a Christian, and God has not told me that. Moreover, it is wise to remember that Britain and Germany fought in WW I both believing God was on their side, their ministers assuring them so. Then, as I so often do because he is so often wrong, I disagree with Ryan. Ryan suffers from 2014 Obsession Disorder. He can hardly write about anything without saying Cochran is a leftist, McDaniel is about the only true conservative in public life, that Haley Barbour is Evil personified, that the Establishment (mainstream MS conservative Republicans) is corrupt,that McD was a victim of race baiting, and that the primary election was stolen. It’s all tire stuff, but Ryan can’t let go and move on. He can’t write about the rain and not relate it to 2014. Personally I think this Disorder is a sign of a movement with no future. And Ryan is guilty of obvious hypocrisy. He complain about Alan and others attacking fellow Republicans. But he, Chris, Melanie, et al, are not breathing if they are not attacking MS Republicans. Now I have to turn my attention back to some ongoing debates with liberals.

    • Hey Bill: I simply take the position that the Constitution should be interpreted when possible according to its text and natural law. To be sure, the right of a woman “person” to choose her own reproductive healthcare needs is a right pursuant to natural law, as well as the First, Fourth, (privacy) and the Fourteenth (equal protection) Amendments. A fetus on the other hand, is not a “person” as a matter of law. America operates successfully because most of our secular leaders, (and especially the courts) strive to follow the rule of law, not the misbegotten dictates of any priest, rabbi, preacher, or imam as to what is the will of god.

  4. I can’t imagine reading natural law as you do. There are few things more clear than that a baby in the womb is a human person. I would say any fool can look at a baby en uterine or just born an see that. Don’t need priests, ministers, or rabbis to tell you what you’re seeing. You have a radically libertarian political philosophy that is not part of the conservative mainstream. On this you are on the left of the left

    • Hey Bill: Not one single state in the U.S. has extended “personhood” to a fetus. To do so, would upend natural law, as well as long-established common law that each state follows. I submit that the intrusive role of the State that you and Chris promote is the epitome of the progressive big government State that a true Conservative should abhor. I further submit that a fetus is no more a person, than a raw egg is an omlet. Why is that so hard for members of the Christian Collectivist Community to accept?

  5. David, it is almost inconceivable moral obtuseness and callousness that anyone could write about an unborn baby what you just wrote. Regarding the developing baby en utero, there is no need for a “Christian Collectivist,” whatever the hell that is, to tell anyone what they know when they look at a sonogram or a just born baby. The atheist Nat Hentoff, who died recently, saw it clearly and spoke up to the chagrin of many liberals. You don’t get to define conservatism, thank “whatever gods may be.” Your view, if it prevailed, would make us ethically bankrupt. Why is it so hard for a human being to look at a baby en utero and see what is a fellow human being? Why is it so hard for a calloused human heart to have compassion for that fellow human being?

    • Hey Bill: A fetus is not considered a person in so far as having any legal rights. To be sure, just like an egg is always a potential omlet, a fetus is a potential person or human being. However, in many cases the woman experiences a miscarriage, thereby losing the fetus. Sometimes the fetus simply expires in the womb, only to be absorbed into the woman’s system. As I have said before, America is a country that operates pursuant to the rule of law. As a conservative, I am thankful that we all answer to the law, and not the Bronze Age superstitions of middle eastern goat herders, sand dwellers, and camel jockeys. Hopefully, once the dust settles, The Donald will no longer feel a need to pander to the Christian Collectivist Community, and will make his appointments to the courts and other positions based upon a person’s oath to uphold the rule of law and the Constitution of the United States.

      • David, you and I have have sometimes been allies in responding to Ryan and Chris. But, no more. if I had to choose between living with their conservatism, misguided as it is in a number of significant ways, historically and philosophically, and your disregard for your fellow human beings, your philosophy cut loose from the moral moorings of conservatism, and your mocking of all things sacred, I’d choose them in a heartbeat. I would be unhappy in the world they would produce, but I’d be in hell on earth in the one you would produce. After your last two posts, I simply am without any sense of political kinship with you and have lost all respect for you. I care about you, but other than our common humanity, I have nothing in common with you, your mocking of God, your deliberate and self-conscious moral obtuseness, your calloused conscience, and your lack of compassion and and mercy toward the unborn. Write what you want in response. I’ll not answer. It would be of no profit for anyone, you and me less than anyone. I’ll discuss and debate with almost anyone, but no longer with you.

  6. Hey Bill: I’m sorry that you feel that way. I’m really the compassionate type. I simply recognize that following the rule of law is the key to America’s greatness. By our separation of the secular from the sectarian we have avoided the civil strife that religion has generated in most of the world at one time or another. This is the dilemma that faces you and other members of the CCC. In your heart, you all are Progressives who want the State to regulate private conduct that is consistent with your world views. Don’t give up. We can agree to disagree.

    At one time the rule of law said that a black slave was not human. At one time there were laws which would not allow the freed slave to marry outside their race. That law also did not allow them to bote. Law once kep women from voting, from divorcing her husband, from opening a credit card or owning a checking account. It has been less than one hundred years since women obtained the right to vote. So choosing to argue that abortion is in fact legal is an argument devoid of morality. You are arguing a “fetus” is not a human being so I ask what exactly has ever come the fertilizatiob of an egg and spern except a human being. Turtle eggs on the costs of the United States are afforded more rights and protection from harm than a baby has while in in it’s mother’s uterus. Try as you might to rationalize your argument by stating the legality of abortions you will never be able to argue that you are on the moral high ground because you are taking a human life. One does not need to tie the sanctity of life to a higher power when you simply apply the right to life protected to ALL people by our bill of rights. That should include at all stages of development the human fetus.

    • Hey Jessica: I understand where you’re coming from. However, America is a secular democratic republic that operates pursuant to the rule of law. The analogy you present is what you believe from a purely sectarian standpoint. Sectarianism is the antithesis to the rule of law. Sectarianism in government decision making is just another form of theocracy. It leads to internal strife in a nation. As Americans, we live in a secular democratic republic where sectarian ideas should be avoided in such a way so that the odds of domestic tranquility can increase.
