Indicted former Republican House leader Tom Delay says racism is a joke

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

This man was a leader of the Republican party. He's still a leader of the Republican far-right. And he thinks racism is a joke. He thinks calling black women "nappy-headed hos" is a joke, and that anyone who has a problem with it is simply being "politically correct." I guess that this Republican leader also thinks calling a Jewish journalist a "boner-nosed, beanie headed Jew boy" is a joke too. That calling gays "homos" and laughing at the murder of gays and lesbians is a joke too. That overturning Jewish tombstones is a joke. That referring to black professional women as "cleaning ladies" is a joke. The list goes on.

The people leading today's Republican party, a party hijacked by the far-right, the religious right, racism, sexism, and homophobia is simple a joke. And if you call someone on their ten-plus years of racism, sexism and homophobia, then you are simply being politically correct and must be destroyed.

This is what the Republican party has become. A haven for racists, sexists, and homophobes. Blacks, women, gays, and Latinos take note. They simply can't comprehend the concept that racism, sexism and homophobia are bad things, per se, and that you don't get the right to revenge because someone held a racist accountable. Only klansmen think and talk like that, at least until now.

(NB Delay made these deplorable comments on his blog and at Townhall, the premiere conservative Web site. I don't plan on linking to either, since I'm not going to give this racist criminal the Web traffic he wants.)
