The Fayard Hate-Fest And Its Hifalutin’ Attendees

By now pretty much everybody in the state knows about Caroline Fayard’s goofy “I hate Republicans” rant, complete with a clumsy blood libel about conservative kids being served BBQ-style.

To some it might be curious that the state Democrat Party was so un-PC in its treatment of the gaffe, as the state party had almost nothing to say about it. They largely left Fayard to offer up a non-apology which mumbled something about context and the content of her prepared speech. The whole thing came off as unprofessional, to be sure.

And part of that involved the fact that Louisiana Democrat Party chairman Buddy Leach was at the event and spoke shortly before Fayard did.

But The Hayride has obtained a copy of the invitation to the hate-fest put on by the Washington Parish Democrat Executive Committee, and now we know who the funders of it were.

The top group of the folks listed on the invitation, styled “Benefactors,” include:

Thomas is also listed as a “Sustainer” on the invitation, along with a couple of other entries:

In short, virtually every Democrat politician looking for office in Washington Parish, as well as the state Democrat party chair – and by the way the kids from Students Learning Government at Bogalusa High School – was on hand.

So naturally, nobody wants to say anything. They’re all pretty uncomfortable.

Most people think Fayard is going to run for governor. She’d be a terrific ambassador for the state, wouldn’t she? She certainly knows how to handle herself in front of the adults – and the high school kids, too.
