Conservative icon Jesse Helms dead at 86


Raleigh, N.C. Jesse Helms, the firebrand U.S. senator whose outspoken, conservative views polarized North Carolina and U.S. voters for decades, died at 1:15 a.m. Friday in Raleigh, according to John Dodd, president of the Jesse Helms Center.

He was 86. His cause of death was not released. Funeral arrangements will be forthcoming, Dodd said.

Helms served five terms in the U.S. Senate, retiring in 2003 because of his faltering health. During his 30 years in Capitol Hill, the North Carolina Republican became a powerful voice for a conservative movement that was growing both in Congress and across the country, and he used his position to speak out against issues like gay rights, federal funding for the arts and U.S. foreign aid.

I forced myself to visit the underworld (DU) to find the answer to that question. It started somewhat mild. It didn't take long before it took a hard turn left.

54. has anyone found his "collection of little shoes" yet?

63. Helms was a NAZI
I'm glad the Nazi scum has finally gone to Hell. Thank Christ Helms, Reagan and Heston all got the Alzheimer's they richly deserved.

75. Did someone finally drive a state through his heart?
If not, I hope someone does before they bury him.

43. About fucking time, these old republican racist, fascist fucks live way too long...
Fascist like George Schultz is still fucking alive, David Rockefeller, Henry Kissinger, George HW Bush, will these lying, hateful, greedy fucks die already!

It's pretty obvious these are immature little punks spouting off. I only hope that when they grow up they look back and realize what TOTAL DICKWADS they actually were.

ANGH (Ain't Never Gonna Happen), but it's a nice thought.

His record speaks for itself.

He had a family who loved him and will miss him, so my condolences to them.

Well said, and entirely sufficient.
