South Carolina GOP House Nominee Makes Birther Joke, Questions Obama's 'Lineage'
The newly-elected Republican nominee to challenge Rep. Jim Clyburn in South Carolina played into the birther conspiracy theory in a speech to a Tea Party rally last year.
Anthony Culler, who won the Republican primary in South Carolina’s sixth congressional district last night, told the crowd at the February 2013 “Day of Resistance” rally that bipartisan gun background check legislation is a “Trojan horse” for the government to “target you.”
He then threw in a birther joke: “How is it that on every single shooting they track back the lineage of that gun better than you can Barack Obama?”
Cullen, a self-described “gun nut” holds strong social conservative positions, including opposition to abortion rights and “sinful ‘alternative’ lifestyles” and blames Clyburn for keeping his constituents “ shackled in the chains of poverty.” In a recent Facebook post, he wrote, “Ever notice how non-Christians believe Christians and our values should not be allowed in politics and government but we are to be open-minded to their un-Godly beliefs? (And to think polite Christians actually fall for this stupid and illogical double standard and stand down.)”
Interestingly, Cullen his bucked his party by vowing to vote against any entitlement cuts.
Clyburn has handily won all of his recent reelection bids in the heavily Democratic, majority African American district, something that Culler might not be able to change if he keeps on making birther jokes.
