Dear GOP: Play the Angry White Man card Enough & you might attract Racist Donors

Cenk Uygur | (The Young Turks Video) | – –

“The leader of a rightwing group that Dylann Roof allegedly credits with helping to radicalise him against black people before the Charleston church massacre has donated tens of thousands of dollars to Republicans such as presidential candidates Ted Cruz, Rand Paul and Rick Santorum.

Earl Holt has given $65,000 to Republican campaign funds in recent years while inflammatory remarks – including that black people were “the laziest, stupidest and most criminally-inclined race in the history of the world” – were posted online in his name.

After being approached by the Guardian on Sunday, Cruz’s presidential campaign said it would be returning all money the senator had received from Holt.”

    • Well, Rand Paul’s family business has been playing the neo-Confederate game for decades. I don’t know why the media never asks him about his father calling Lincoln a tyrant.

      Look around that site, and you will see the larger White Christian supremacist context of every movement to take America back to its past “liberty”.

  1. Numerous right-wing extremist incumbent elected officials and candidates at the national and State levels KNOWINGLY SOLICIT CAMPAIGN DONATIONS from those who can and do incite the weak of mind into appalling acts of terror. It’s a FACT.

    Once exposed for their heinous extremist ties and the blatant pandering for these donations, the game shifts to vociferously pretending to return SOME campaign donations or rerouting a pittance of ill-gotten monies to victims’ families.

    There is absolutely no way to determine the validity of ignoble claims made by these h8-preying right-wing extremists INFESTING government at every level.

    Such claims are total BEE ESS as they are completely unverifiable and subject to the whims of those who would go after these h8-based donations in the first place.

  2. One of the things you are no longer allowed to say in America is that White people, having inherited favorable financial positions from their racist forebears, will naturally hire, promote and contract with those who look and act most like themselves. Our notion of private property rights guarantees that inequality can only get worse.
