California GOP Convention: “Crazy People and Bigots”

via KCRA Sacramento:

“Harmeet Dhillon, a lawyer from San Francisco, is running to become the party’s statewide vice chairman.

In a recent posting on Facebook, Dhillon was accused of sympathizing with terrorists by Vera Eyzendooren, president of the San Bernardino County Federation of Republican Women.

“I was told by one of Harmeet’s friends that because of her religion, her loyalty is to the Muslim religion,” wrote Eyzendooren. “So she will defend a Muslim beheading two men without hesitation … she is not Republican.”

Dhillon is a Sikh, who as a child moved to the United States from India.

“In any group of 1,600 delegates, you’re going to have a few crazy people and bigots,” Dhillon told KCRA ”

[Ed.  The state GOP leadership admirably  did the right thing and denounced this crackpot as they should have.   It is still funny.]

“A club associated with the county [ San Bernadino ] Federation of Republican Women was criticized previously for a newsletter that was accused of being racist. The newsletter put out in October 2008 by the Chaffey College Republican Women, for which the federation is an umbrella organization, depicted then-Sen. Barack Obama on a phony food stamp with a bucket of KFC chicken, a slab of ribs, a pitcher of Kool-Aid and a slice of watermelon.”

State and local party leaders denounced the newsletter and called it unacceptable.
