Anthony Culler, the GOP nominee looking to take on Rep. Jim Clyburn (D-S.C.) in the November midterm elections, can be seen in a video from a February 2013 "Day of Resistance" rally making a birther joke about President Barack Obama.
"How is it on every single shoot they track back the lineage of that gun better than you can Barack Obama?" Culler said to a laughing crowd.
"This tradition is real simple, laws are passed to make us criminals. If you say, 'I'm not following that, I'm not following it, I will give my children my guns' -- well what they can do is one day if they ever want to target you they can come to you and say, 'Hey, we passed a law -- did you do the background check, did your father, did you?' If you did they will have you, and that is the gotcha on this thing. It's a, it's a Trojan horse."
Culler has also been very colorful on his Facebook page. In one post he wrote that "I am not just PRO-Second Amendment, I am closer to a GUN NUT!"
He also once posted that "Jim Clyburn knows all about oppression; he has been leading the oppression of the people of SC-6 for 21 years now! The man is either ignorant or has no shame and I could care less which it is."
Clyburn is the third-ranking Democrat in the House of Representatives and a member of the Congressional Black Caucus.
Culler, a banker by profession, defeated Leon Winn in the GOP primary Tuesday with 65 percent of the vote to Winn's 35 percent.
