Wow! Yet Another Republican Shows Her Racist Side

Audra Shay, vice chairman of the young Republicans, running for the chairman, has a Facebook page. Bad omen, right? Right. Give a Republican email, Facebook, Youtube, etc. and he/she will cut their own throat rather quickly. In this case Ms Shay was carrying on a political conversation on her page, when one of her friends responded with the following comments quoted on the Daily Beast:

“It’s the government making us commies… can’t even smoke in my damn car… whats next they going to issue toilet paper once a month… tell us how to wipe our asses…”

“Obama Bin Lauden [sic] is the new terrorist… Muslim is on there side [sic]… need to take this country back from all of these mad coons… and illegals.”

Shay's response: “You tell em Eric! lol.”

When there were protests about the comments, Ms. Shay removed those "friends," keeping the offender. She made a feeble attempt at an apology, but came out with a Palinesque response, insinuating that it was all someone else's fault. Later the offending "friend" wrote yet another racist diatribe:

… this is still America… freedom of speech and thought is still allowed… for now any ways… and the last time i checked I was a good ole southern boy… and if yur ass is black don’t let the sun set on it in a southern town…”

Ms Shay has been endorsed by LA Gov., Jindal, a supposed candidate for President. I wonder how long it will take him to distance himself from Ms. Shay.

It just keeps on coming. It has only been a week or so since the last racist tirade. I doubt they will ever learn and the only way they will not continue to be quickly caught is if they give up electronic media altogether.

Colin Powell says the Republican Party still has a problem with racism. Rather an understatement, wouldn't you say?

What shocks me is when young Republicans are (or act) surprised by this "good ol boy" racism and hate. Everything they think is wrong, against the Bible, is "PC;" meaning they expect the confedrate flag to rise again with the right politicians in office. So many white hoods out there---oh, I LOVE FaceBook.
