So, by now, we've all heard that one of the leading candidates to be chairman of the RNC, Chip Saltsman, sent out CDs with the song "Barack the Magic Negro" as Christmas presents. Because nothing says "Merry Christmas" like blatant racism. I mean, it's not like Jesus was dark skinned or anything.
Now, you'd think that after Saltsman showed his racist stripes, his chances to win the RNC chair would be slim to none. But, these are Republicans we're dealing with. And a whole slew of them are rallying around Chip's right to be an ignorant bigot. And make no mistake, this is America. You have that right.
So, Chip, galvanized by his party's support, has come out with a campaign ad emphasizing his finer, goober qualities. Take a look.
It's nice to see people being comfortable with who they are. Chip is inspiring Republicans around the country to stand up and say "We are white. We are racist. We are proud."
And not to be left out, Fox News, along with their viewers, are apparently jumping on the uninformed band wagon, too. On New Year's eve, they were scrolling New Year's messages from viewers along the bottom of the screen and they allowed one on the air that read:
HAPPY NEW YEAR AND LET'S HOPE THE MAGIC NEGRO DOES A GOOD JOB. LOVE JEN AND JOHN C
I'm not kidding. Take a look.
Can Republicans respond to their November defeat by becoming even more of a fringe party? Yes they can.
Can Republicans make themselves strictly a regional party of the deep South? Yes they can.
Can Republicans elect a clear racist to be their national chairman? Yes they can.
And lets hope they do. Because in America, you have the right to be a racist. But if you are, the rest of us have the right to treat you like backwards clown that you are.
