Randi Rhodes: The South Is So Backwards That Bobby Jindal, Nikki Haley 'Pretend' to Be Christians

On Monday, liberal radio talker Randi Rhodes ripped into the South, including a wish that it would secede again. She played clips of HBO interviews of Southerners done for Bill Maher and complained "Bobby Jindal even converted from Hinduism -- Nikki Haley, too -- in order to be acceptable to the conservative South in Louisiana and uh -- [about a five second pause] Georgia! I mean, that is crazy that in order to be acceptable to the party you have to, you know, pretend that you've given up your religion!"

Haley is governor of South Carolina, not Georgia, and her family are Sikh, not Hindu. Jindal converted to Catholicism in high school, so it's a little tough to argue it was all political calculation. Haley and her husband attend a Methodist church but she also was married in the Sikh faith out of respect for her parents. Liberal outlets like NPR have raised questions about the sincerity of her conversion.

Rhodes was angry with the HBO clips she played where a man said he would rather stay true to his Christian principles than accept a handout from the government. She ranted: "I don't get it, I really don't understand it but what is your principle in the Deep South? Is your principle hatred and you would rather starve and die poor than betray your principle? What is your principle?" She suggested these good old boys opposed projects like light-rail transportation for Mississippi and summarized it as "I want to vote for someone who does nothing for me.”

She complained about the Democratic poll that found people didn't like interracial marriage and then concluded: "I hope the South does it again, and by that I mean, secedes. Do you know how much money that would save? Do you have any idea? We could just get on with our business of being a modern, 21st century country? No, I’m kidding...only a little."


#1 So dont dare question Obama's

So dont dare question Obama's "christianity", but go ahead and question Jindal and Haley?

#2 Rhodes thinks religion in general is crazy . . .

. . . so it's no wonder that she can't comprehend individuals changing their faith.

Better we should all face Washington DC five times a day and pray to Lord Obama, and tithe 50+ percent of our earnings to the IRS.

#3 There is sufficient evidence to understand that Obama... not a Christian, but no such evidence regarding either Ms. Haley or Mr. Jindal.


#4 He is a marxist black

He is a marxist black liberation "christian".

#5 Yeah, she'd probably land

Yeah, she'd probably land face first on the sidewalk if someone questioned her messiah's religion!

#6 She wouldn't need that

Getting "curb smiles" are an ordinary event for Mr Rhodes.

President Obama is a Muslim (from his own lips), Kenyan (read it from his publicist) a homosexual (read it on a news magazine cover) and a Socialist (I'm alive and can see it for myself)

#7 I know

I can always depend on Randi for a good laugh.

If you're not getting flak, you're not over the target.

#8 Randi Rhodes pretends... be a woman.

#9 She also pretends to be homo sapiens...

...but I have my doubts.

#10 Only her veterinarian knows for sure.

And he can't talk because he is still in therapy after getting her as a patient.

#11 You all have to understand

Randi is a VERY sick individual. She truly needs mental health help.

#12 I wonder... many taxpayers would gladly pay to give mental health help to Randi Rhodes. There's a cause I'd rally for.

#13 Somebody should've given her

Somebody should've given her mother some taxpayer-funded birth control!!!! On top of being a colossal moron, she's giving the late and great guitarist Randy Rhodes a bad name!!!!!

#14 About all I'd give her....

would be a Gospel tract and an offer to repent.

#15 Not Me...

I wouldn't piss on her were she on fire....

#16 These people are unbelievably

These people are unbelievably dense. They just cannot absorb the fact that some people have principles and stick to them! Can't be bribed or bought off. Unthinkable in their version of life!

Me - "The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years - the cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil."

#17 Message to Randy-With-An-Eye . . .

. . . from a long-dead Mexican revolutionary and bandito grande:

"It is better to die on your feet than live on your knees." -- Emiliano Zapata

#18 The South is so backwards...

The South is so backwards that it produced 4 of the last 6 Presidents, and half of them are Democrats. What do you say about that, Randi?

The Citizens of each State shall be entitled to all Privileges and Immunities of Citizens in the several States. The US Constitution

Unless you're a fetus. The US Supreme Court

Or Anwar al-Awlaki.

#19 Here in the South, the people

Here in the South, the people know a good Christian from a phoney baloney, lib talker.

Sorry Randi, but making a fool of yourself works only in New York city.


Keep talking, liberals...

#21 Randi

should find out if removing ones head from her anal orivice is covered under Obamacare.

I have sworn upon the altar of God, eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man Thomas Jefferson 1800

#22 Randi leaks the trooth

Read between the lines. Randi "I'll beat the sidewalk to a pulp with my face and blame the racists" Rhodes wonders why anyone would refuse to accept food or money because of principle. Apparently she doesn't understand the value of upholding one's principles. Or does she even have any, besides, of course contraception on demand (including the post-coital contraception called abortion).

#23 I think you have to understand

the concept of principles before you can understand the value of upholding them.

#24 Jindal is doing a good job pretending

Jindal is doing a good job pretending to be christian. He goes to church every Sunday, obeys the ten commandments, and loves his family. you woul think he is a real christian.

Present Hussein Obama is a real christian, he just doesn't want to show off. That's why he never goes to church except at election time, obeys none of the commandments, and uses his family for political show. He cancelled the national day of prayer but attended islams feasts. He even allows the muslim call to prayer to be the sweetest sound to his EARS.


Jesus Loves You so much He died for you

#25 Either of these folks deserve this crap.

Not sure about Haley so much, but I have talked to Jindal several times as he was my Rep for 4 years. You cant get this guy to personally critique anyone in privet. Just a great person raising a better family.

Seek Truth, Defend Liberty

#26 Randi- liar until caught

This Randi Rhodes is the same skank who let fellow Air America( defunct theiving radio network) slime say she got mugged in NYC and triesd to say it was a conservative conspiracy. She is NOT the voice of truth. P.S.- she fell when walking her dog- no report if alcohol was involved! No police report filed.
