Water Cooler – The Republican Party Is Racist, Here’s Proof

I have gone back and forth for more than a week about posting this thing. It is frankly appalling and disturbing. However I have been loud in saying that the Republicans and their conservative allies are racists. Sometimes you just have to show it for people to see.

This guy wants to run for President from the Florida Tea Party. His name is Grady Warren and he is going to tell you that he is not a racist then he is going to say he is

“tired of Blacks, nigras, Muslims, and Hispanics, especially the illegals, calling us racist for trying to save the America that we love”

Yeah, you read or hear that right “nigras” I guess that even a scumbag racist can’t quite bring himself to say the word “nigger” on a video but it is not like it matters. The stuff that he says is lies and race slander. This tool think that he really is not racist when he says that African Americans should not be anywhere near the polls because they don’t have the education to vote responsibly.

If you don’t want to pollute you mind with the whole thing, jump ahead to the 4 minute mark and just listen to the hate, bigotry and unapologetic racism that human piece of filth spews. This is the what the Tea Party and the Republican are about. Not totally, I will give them that, but they are not willing to repudiate it, just as they were and are willing to let their base fester in Birtherism.

I know there is an argument on this website that Democrats are the same as Republicans. Well, feast your eyes on what the Republicans are at their base and then show me where a Democrat, any Democrat is the same. Dems might be (and often are) weak in the knees and compromise far too much but at their base they are not this.

I am not going to pretend there are not racist or bigoted Democrats. I know there are. However no one in our party would or who supports our party would ever say these kinds of things. They would and should be ashamed of their failings in terms of tolerance, not proud of them and rationalizing them. There would be no place for anyone who would say these things in any manner in the Democratic Party. They would be repudiated and drummed out. Yet this guy, the steaming tightly coiled turd is not being repudiated by the Tea Party or the Republicans who pander to them. This is the same kind of folks who continue to doubt the president was born in this country.

The difference between the Republicans and their re-branding with the Tea Party and the Democrats is stark. The Democratic Party would never put up with this kind of thing, because it is the antithesis of what America is about and what the Democratic Party, warts and all is about. When Civil Rights legislation was being debated, the part of the Democrat Party that would not stand for it was pushed out. They went to the Republicans and they have been festering there ever since.

What is on your minds tonight Firedogs? The floor is yours.
