SPOILER ALERT: Todd Kincannon, the former head of the South Carolina Republican Party, is resting comfortably in a mental health facility.
But the real question is why did it take the South Carolina Supreme Court so long to make the obvious ruling concerning Kincannon? It’s not as if he didn’t put social media to good use to demonstrate he was nuts. Consider this recent, Kincannon missive.
Todd’s got lots of guns. Or, did. Todd, who never served in the military, (just like Donald Trump), regularly attacked veterans – wishing they would come back in a body-bag, if their views turned anti-war.
This from someone who was also on the election board in Simpsonville, South Carolina. GOP’s problems continue.
But will hazard a guess the South Carolina Supreme Court’s action was partly due to the fact that prior to Kincannon’s meltdown in Court, his threatening emails, texts, and faxes were limited to targeting women. Todd’s one of South Carolina’s top misogynists, and Republican…so it’s acceptable.
Kincannon’s also a racist, but that’s secondary. Women are the focused object of Todd’s loathing. (Kincannon hates gays, too. But that’s a given.) Kincannon’s focus was directed to me after I made a formal, written Complaint to the State Bar regarding a specific tweet Kincannon made in regard to Col. Morris Davis. To me Kincannon’s tweet could easily have been misconstrued (given the level of stupidity among Kincannon’s 55k followers) as an open solicitation request to harm of Col. Morris Davis.
Kincannon promptly blamed most of what happened to him after that, on me. His dullard fans marched in lock-step agreement, absent facts, but demonstrating (much like Trump followers today) a willingness to believe Kincannon self-hype, as written, here.
However, my educated guess is once the former head of the South Carolina Republican party indicated he might take out some men; well now – presto! This happened.
Earlier, Todd was briefly arrested in Lexington County for threatening his wife.
In that the Lexington County Sheriff was himself sent to prison, we’re not expecting much from that. Also, in that Kincannon threatened his wife in a state that has bragging rights to the highest rate of men killing women in the nation..so I harbor no illusions about a prosecution.
I first got interested in Todd when he went after Col Morris Davis. I filed a complaint. Naturally Todd threatened to sue me. Repeatedly. Also,
But to repeat a familiar refrain, when men target women, it’s a shrug. Women pay taxes for…not much.
Even when threats to women result in multiple murders, as Florida’s National Republican Lawyers Association and pro life, attorney, Kyle Bedran learned, following the murders of two women Bedran personally assured the court would not happen.
Back to Todd.
When when men target men – that’s a mistake. Especially in Southern, Republican, (pro-life) states.
But all is well. Not with Todd, but the rest of us. Todd Kincannon remains “resting comfortably” in a mental health facility. In California terms, a 5150.
Glad Kincannon’s finally getting the help he’s long needed. But it’s a sorry comment on State Bars in general that do so little to address those attorneys who are mentally unhinged as to routinely threaten people.
Like I said, Todd threatened me on the regular. But no one did a thing until he melted down in court and began as court records indicate “using menacing language.”
Somebody get back to me if I’m wrong about my educated guess.
