Waldo Jaquith Calls Out Laurence Verga As "Racist"

Sunday, February 28, 2010

Wow, I don't think I've ever seen Waldo Jaquith as angry as this, but it's totally justified as far as I'm concerned. Check this garbage out.
The Daily Progress reports on Republican candidate for congress Laurence Verga’s response to the question of what the biggest threat to U.S. national security is:
Verga said the biggest threat is the Americans who voted the Obama administration into office. “That was political correctness gone awry,” Verga said.
...what Laurence Verga is saying is that Obama is only president because he’s black. 69,456,897 Americans—52.9% of us—tossed national security aside because we supported President Obama over Sen. John McCain merely because Obama is a black man and, therefore, not a real American, so he can be known to be secretly undermining national security...

When people talk about teabaggers being racist, this is exactly the sort of shameful horseshit that they’re talking about. Fuck this guy.
I second that motion. I would also add that supposedly "sane" Republicans like Robert Hurt should have spoken up when Verga made this statement at the 5th CD "Tea Party" debate last night. Their silence speaks volumes.
