There, I said it. I have been trying really hard to not just say what I think about this guy, but in light of his most recent comments on rural gun owners, I’ve pretty much had it.
“There are a whole bunch of folks in small towns in Pennsylvania, in towns right here in Indiana, in my home town in Illinois, who are bitter. They are angry… So I said, well ya know, when you’re bitter, you turn to what you can count on. So people, ya know they vote about guns or they take comfort from their faith, and their family, and their community, and they get mad about illegal immigrants who are coming over to this country, or they get frustrated about how things are changing. That’s a natural response.”
Screw you buddy. Notice how in this statement he equates taking refuge and comfort from your family, community, and faith is tantamount to being a bitter racist. You know what? Indiana’s primary is an open primary you elitist bastard, and you’ve managed to piss me off so much that I’m actually considering a vote for Hillary. Do you have any idea how angry I’d have to be to want to vote for her?
Just so I’m clear, when I “take comfort from my faith” it’s a bad thing, but when you attend a racist, bigoted church for 20 years it’s totally okay because your grandmother was a racist?
