BETWEEN THE LINES: (R)esearch the (D)etails Before Voting

Posted: October 10, 2012 at 4:31 a.m.

Arkansas Republicans are learning the hard way not to tout the universal “R” for election in this state.

Opinion, Pages 5 on 10/10/2012

To anyone who believes that bringing slaves from Africa to the United States was a blessing in disguise I recommend reading the book "Amazing Grace" the biography of William Wilberforce. The 'middle passage' was the most horrific trip imaginable. Do some research about the middle passage if you don't want to read the book and you will understand why that statement is so absurd. By the way I vote republican most of the time, but could never vote for a person so misinformed and lacking in knowledge to make that statement.

Charlie Fuqua also stated about 20 years ago that the Holocaust was a fabrication. I personally heard him say that. From that point forward I distanced myself from him as much as possible. I am a very conservative Christian and prolife but do not share his obviously "fringe" and crazy beliefs. I would never vote for him. He needs to withdraw. His beliefs are right in there with Hitler and the Nazis.

"The maintenance of civil order in society rests on the foundation of family discipline. Therefore, a child who disrespects his parents must be permanently removed from society in a way that gives an example to all other children of the importance of respect for parents. The death penalty for rebellioius children is not something to be taken lightly. The guidelines for administering the death penalty to rebellious children are given in Deut 21:18-21:"
--from Charlie Fuqua's book

Fuqua is supported by the Republican Party of Arkansas, by the Bateville Republican Party and by Rep. Steve Womack who gave him campaign money.

Fuqua, which Blagg refuese to acknowledge, is a former REPUBLICAN state Representative from SPRINGDALE, where they grow rwing nutcakes by the dozen.

"We must require all parents to support their children. Any parent that does not support his or her children should be sterilized so that they cannot produce more children that they do not support. Any parent that has his or her parental rights terminated by a court because they have abused or neglected their children should be sterilized ..."
--from Charlie Fuqua's book

Charlie is a mainline Republican having formerly represented Springdale in the Ark Legislature.

In response to cdawg: I am from Springdale and prefer that you not paint with such a wide brush. I am not in the same category as Charlie Fuqua. Every city, town, state and party has their own share of persons who have totally absurd and despicable points of view. So, please be a little more respectful in your comments. He may claim to be a mainline republican, but he certainly does not represent my mostly republican viewpoints and wish he could be given a category or party of his own completely separate from republican identity.

By the way if cdawg will more carefully read Blagg's article she does identify him as formerly serving from Springdale.

>In response to cdawg: I am from Springdale and prefer that you not paint with such a wide brush.<

Really, Springdale has sent these charlatans to the state house:

Charles Fuqua (listed as one of 10 worst by ADG)
Jim Holt (listed as one of 10 worst by Ark Demo-Gaz)
Jim Bob Duggar.

None of them ever got a thing accomplished for Ark or for Springdale.

For Holt and Duggar it was a paycheck. It was the best paying job either of them had ever held at that time. Fuqua is a lawyer and served 10 years working in Ark state government under Huckabee.

More embarrassing Fuqua quackery:

"Charles Fuqua of Batesville, Arkansas, is currently seeking a House of Representatives seat. His e-book "God's Law: The Only Political Solution" came out in April on Amazon.

"I see no solution to the Muslim problem short of expelling all followers of the religion from the United States," he writes in his book, according to The Arkansas Times newspaper."

Today, Jon Hubbard says Democrats who criticize him for his book which expressed how lucky blacks were to be enslaved and brought to U.S.
says those Democrats are behaving like nazis
because they dare to criticize him.
Can't make that stuff up. See here:

You will note MAINSTREAM Republicans are standing with Jon Hubbard today!

Best guess is angry white people in Jonesboro, Ark in 2010. I think we understand backlash.

Leave it to certain personalities to take any chance to badmouth Springdale.

Me and Charlie an' the rest of the Party are all together on these issues. Self-deport and self-sterilize.

Inasmuch as I'm a freeborn man of the USA, I don't have to deport myself. However, in 1989 (childless, unmarried, and at the age of 23) I did get a free vasectomy from the AHEC clinic in Fayetteville. It was funded by the Federal Government under the administration of George H.W. Bush. And, it was the best life decision I've ever made.

I'll never have to pay child support or suffer paternity lawsuits. I'll never have to wonder "should I drown this retarded child at birth, or should I allow it to live and be supported by your tax dollars... ." I'll be able to maintain my rugged Republican individualism for all my years, and have no one but myself to worry about... .

Oh, about that... . Turns out, since Bush Sr. encouraged me to get cut, I don't have anyone to pick up the tab for my remaining years. What're you good folk gonna do for me?

Politicians like diapers should be changed often for the same reason. Fuqua, Holt, Duggar, and Sue Madison are purulent examples.

FYI, diapers are seldom purulent. Mixed metaphor. But I expect no less from Moneymyst.
