Well, that didn’t take long….
See my post from earlier today about Voter ID and the return of Jesse Helms.
Yep, this is the guy…..
The GOP hates it when someone is honest about their goals and opinions. You aren’t supposed to see the “man behind the curtain.”
And tell me again all this modern Tea Party nonsense isn’t just repackaged racism with these folks mad as hell a Black man is in the White House.
Like I said, we aren’t supposed to see behind the curtain..
From TalkingPointsMemo.com via WRAL:
A Republican precinct chairman in North Carolina was asked to resign Thursday after making racially inflammatory comments during a ‘Daily Show’ interview on Wednesday, WRAL reported.
Buncombe GOP Chair Henry Mitchell said Don Yelton resigned for making remarks that were “offensive, uniformed and unacceptable of any member within the Republican Party.”
In an interview centered on North Carolina’s voter ID law conducted by the Daily Show’s Aasif Mandvi, Yelton criticized “lazy black people that wants the government to give them everything.”
“The bottom line is the law is not racist,” Yelton said.
“Of course the law isn’t racist, and you’re not racist,” Mandvi responded.
“Well,” Yelton paused. “I’ve been called a bigot before. Let me tell you something, you don’t look like me but I think I’ve treated you the same as anybody else. As a matter of fact, one of my best friends is black. One of my best friends.”
“When I was a young man you didn’t call a black a black,” he added later. “You called him a negro.”
