White people will act racist as hell and find any excuse to defend their foolishness. Whether it’s Permit Party, BBQ Becky, or even our bigoted President, they can exhibit pure racism but never own it. This latest GOP lawmaker is a prime example.
Rep. Scott Taylor (R-Va.) is campaigning for reelection in November and he has been accused of siding with proudly racist Virginia GOP Senate candidate Corey Stewart. Democratic opponent Elaine Luria has called on Taylor to condemn Stewart’s horribly racist comments — like defending the Confederate Flag and Robert E. Lee, a traitor who wanted to dismantle America. Taylor refused, and so people said if you won’t shut down a clear racist then you yourself must co-sign the despicable behavior. Taylor’s logic? He said he can’t be racist because his son is named after a “Black guy.” Yep, you read that right.
According to The Virginia-Pilot, Stewart ranted, “I don’t give a shit about Corey Stewart. No one else does either except for Democrats who are trying to target me. … No one cares, except for a small teeny amount of people you met at the cupcake place. What are they trying to say? That Scott Taylor likes Corey Stewart so therefore he’s a racist?” He continued, “Do you think that’s going to play here? My son is named after a Black guy. I’m a military guy. We don’t give a shit about where you come from. Black, white, brown, gay, straight. I don’t care.”
Fix it, Jesus.
No word on which Black guy his son is named after—let’s just hope it isn’t Ben Carson or Clarence Thomas. But what is the most disturbing is that his district is 22 percent Black — meaning the answer is to vote him out in November!
