DL tell me about South Carolina

I mean the state has produced 4 horrible current-day politicians

Nikki Haley

Tim Scott

Lindsey Graham

Nancy Mace who loves to say the right things on mainstream media only to say the opposite on right wing media and vote with the party on almost everything

What the fuck is up with this state? Yes Florida and Texas are horrible but South Carolina is like a sleeper repub shithole

Let's talk about New York, shall we? Hmmm.

Jaime Harrison is the only decent national politician to come out of SC in a while

by Anonymousreply 2February 18, 2023 10:38 PM

I would include Jim Clyburn but he's not new. He's been here for a while and is the only non-repub member of Congress from SC currently

Nancy is a cunt! She called herself a "pro-LGBT" Republican on ABC This Week but she will sit silently and let her Republican colleagues criminalize homosexuality.

B*tch, we haven't forgot that you vandalized your own house just so you could blame it on"antifa."

They refuse to move beyond the Sixties — the 1860s that is. They started the damn Civil War and they have no intention of conceding defeat now or really ever.

The fact that this deep-red shithole plays such a prominent role in determining the Democratic Presidential candidate due to its early Primary is a real corruption of democracy.

by Anonymousreply 18April 23, 2023 9:10 PM

You realize black voters are a crucial part of the Dem electorate r19. It makes sense to have an early contest where primary candidates have to campaign in the black community.

Detroit has a huge black community. Why not have an early contest in Michigan, an important swing state? Or Georgia?

Really bad roads. Those infrastructure appropriations are going into the hands of corrupt politicians and land developers.

It's also just a poor state r25. It lands in the bottom 10 states for income per capita.

OP, the Civil War started in South Carolina. It has always been a deeply fucked up place.

I rarely set foot in SC anymore. If there is a major ribbon cutting ceremony whereby I get much attention and bestowed credit, I don’t go. My leisure time is spent in Mar-a-Lago or my marmalade muffin may be.

It’s like the very poor man’s England. There’s an aristocracy of sorts and the lifestyle is very dogs-and-horses.

But they love their big pieces of land and blue and pink clothes.

Doesn’t get much better than Charleston

by Anonymousreply 30April 24, 2023 3:02 PM

More and more Northerners and Californians are moving into Charleston and the surrounding coastal areas. They are paying big money for houses and the locals are being priced out. They just don't have the same kind of money down there. It's old money but not BIG money. Charleston feels VERY different than it did 20 years ago when the old Families still owned the houses on the Battery and South of Broad. Now it's some douche from Connecticut wanting to enjoy milder weather and Palmetto trees. Meanwhile the rest of South Carolina is filled with dirt stick dumb ass rednecks. You'll find the occasional local monied family like the Murdaughs in the smaller towns but they are not a bright gentry.

by Anonymousreply 31April 24, 2023 3:34 PM

Those newcomers to Myrtle Beach, Charleston, Georgetown, and other coastal areas are not predominantly eastern establishment liberals. They are right-wing MAGAs from the northeast and midwest. Same in Florida. There has been a huge influx of African-Americans to the south from Detroit, Philadelphia, NJ, Cleveland, NY, etc., the last 30+ years.

by Anonymousreply 32April 27, 2023 1:02 PM

I went to a resort in Myrtle Beach and the crowd was completely integrated. I have never been at a resort up north with so many black people. Everyone got along well and were respectful to each other. I went to a local fish fry and there were lots of yokels. But also two lesbians with Tshirts staying there were queer and proud. Again everyone was friendly and respectful. South Carolina is a mixed bag and not as backward as Northerners think.

by Anonymousreply 33April 27, 2023 1:09 PM

Born and raised in Charleston. It is completely different than the rest of SC and proud of it. As someone mentioned previously, a sort-of aristocratic hierarchy still exists, newcomers are greeted warmly but never fully integrated into old society. Manners, friendliness and polished appearance are benchmarks of residents.

In Charleston, all seems to breathe freedom and peace and to make one forget the world and its sad turmoils.

It's not a sleeper by any means.

Myrtle Beach, Charleston, Hilton Head, Savannah (GA), St. Augustine (FL), and Cape Hatteras (NC) are loaded with tourists, including international travelers. The Great Smokey Mountains region attracts an incredible amounts of tourists as well.

Savannah and Tybee Island are a favorite of mine.

by Anonymousreply 37April 27, 2023 5:43 PM

Where’s Tybee?

by Anonymousreply 38April 27, 2023 6:52 PM

Right off the coast of Georgia near Savannah - really part of the same area as Savannah. South of Hilton Head, SC.

Ironic indeed that one of the most backward, reactionary states in the country has two “life-long bachelors” representing them in the Senate.

I think they film that Outer Banks show there. That show with a bunch of dumb kids running around shirtless while being chased.

It's not as reactionary conservative as you would think - it's more libertarian. I never saw the same amount of Trump feverency in SC as I did in the Midwest, for example.

Doesn't matter with the younger generation anyway. They're still religious, but they don't give a shit about anybody's sexuality.

Nancy Mace is going full-on conspiracy theories now

she's of course propagating the lie that the Durham report "proves" there was "no collusion between Trump and Russia"

and at the same time calling for the FBI to investigate/indict Joe and Hunter Biden.

yet the mainstream media keeps treating her like she's "a moderate" and "reasonable"

no, this piece of shit KNOWS she's lying but thinks it's politically convenient so she does it

South Carolina has always been a hotbed of violence and racism. It goes back to before the Civil War (they were the first to secede, and the first shots were fired there).
