Russell Walker, As Much The Face Of The GOP As Donald J Trump


Right, not every Republican is a racist. But... every racist-- at least every open racist who wants to let his freak flag fly-- who wants to get into electoral politics knows exactly which party to get involved with. In North Carolina yesterday, the News and Observer ran a story under a chilling headline, 'God is racist,' candidate for N.C. House seat says. 'What’s wrong with being a racist?' and, his website kicks in, "Jews are descended from Satan." Meet Russell Walker-- not be be too confused with far right extremist and closet racist Mark Walker-- running for the state House in district 48, which includes Scotland and Hoke counties. The 48th is 51.2% Black and 11.8% Native American.

These aren't even red counties. Both voted for Deborah Ross over Richard Burr in the last Senate race. Both voted for Roy Cooper over Pat McCrory in the gubernatorial race and in the presidential 2016 presidential contest Hoke County went for Clinton 53.8% to 43.0% and Scotland County went for Clinton 53.0% to 45.2%. The 48th is represented by Democrat Garland Pierce, an African American minister, and the GOP didn't run a candidate against him in 2012, 2014 or 2016. 2018 was going to be the big GOP come-back. There was even a Republican primary. Walker beat John Imbaratto 824 (64.8%) to 447 (35.2%). And now that's all in ashes. On Tuesday, the state GOP withdrew its support for Walker.

A multimillionaire and former congressman, Robin Hayes, who serves as the chairman of the North Carolina Republican Party, said on Tuesday that "based on recent behavior and previous statements, the North Carolina Republican Party is unable and unwilling to support the Republican nominated candidate for North Carolina House District 48. The NCGOP along with our local parties in Hoke, Scotland and Robeson Counties will be spending our time and resources supporting Republican candidates that better reflect the values of our party.

His website does accurately represent a vital and growing portion of the Republican Party. He didn't win the primary because he's a devotee of Martin Luther King, Jr.
What is wrong with being a white supremacist? God is a racist and a white supremacist.

Someone or group has to be supreme and that group is the whites of the world ... someone or something has to be inferior ... In all history in sub-Saharan Africa, no two-story building or a waterproof boat was ever made.
Several years ago we visited the beautiful city of Djenne in Mali

These have been Walker's themes for years and he has never tried to hide them-- quite the contrary. It's what GOP primary voters elected to support in the party primary this year.
Walker has carried signs during a protest outside a North Carolina newspaper’s office that said “What is wrong with being a racist” and “God is racist,” the newspaper said.

Walker says on his campaign website that he is suing the Hoke County News-Journal newspaper “because they have refused to print any of my letters to the editor.”

In January, the editor of the paper, Ken MacDonald, wrote on the front page that Walker holds frequent protests outside the newspaper’s office holding up racist signs.

The website Walker says is his features racism, conspiracy theories and pseudoscience, including:
• “God made the races and he is the greatest racist ever.”
• “What is wrong with being a white supremacist?”
• “The Jews are not Semitic they are Satanic as they all descend from Satan.”
A Facebook page for Russell Walker is the only account following the website’s Facebook page.

Another post on the website refers to Martin Luther King Jr. by a racial slur. “MLK wanted to destroy the Caucasian race through mixing and integration. He was an agent of Satan.”

In a 2017 Spectrum News video of Walker following the dismissal of a lawsuit he filed to keep Confederate flags and portraits of Confederate generals in a South Carolina courtroom, Walker uses the same slur against King... Walker had not stepped down as a candidate as of Wednesday afternoon, and cannot be forced off the November ballot.
And racism isn't the only way that Walker is just like Trump. He is "convinced that vaccinations, especially for young children, create a favorable climate for Autism," according to his website. The GOP is still resisting the racism label, But they ought to look at the pile of shit who leads the party nationally and get used to it... at least for a while-- a long while, in all likelihood.

One of the very first religious lessons I was given was that the Jews were -and ARE- God's chosen people. How does this racist moron justify his bullshit that Jews all descend from Satan? Did he get the word direct from the deity he claims to worship in the form of a burning cross?

And of course those slope-foreheaded Xtians believe this crap, don't they?

Religion: a Licence To Hate.

Tax the hell out of them!

If he wins, will the DCCC run a Trump-dog lesser evil racist in 2020?

1:35, might not be a racist. But guaranteed it'll be someone who professes hate of some kind (islam most likely, since that plays well ubiquitously in this shithole).

"not every Republican is a racist. But..." The distinction made is one without a difference.

The Nazi party (calling a spade a spade here) is the association of all virulent hatreds. If you're not a racist, you're a misogynist, homophobe, islamophobe, anti semite or you have a hatred of liberals, the old, young or poor.
Of course you could have more than one of the above. But you hate. That's the hallmark of the Nazi party of trump.

You believe government EXISTS only to ratfuck, impoverish, starve and kill those you hate. plain and simple.

For a bit over 50 years now, since Voting Rights and Civil Rights bills made all southern yellow-dogs into republicans, this has been true. For 45 of those 50 years, it was true in spite of the protestations of the party's PR staffs. But they've all but dispensed with their PR liars since obamanation was elected and those assholes totally lost their shit.

Obamanation, for the record, was a better republican than bill fucking Clinton. And HE was called the republican party's greatest ever president by Michael Moore.

But to the Nazis, pigment is everything.

like I said, a distinction without a difference.

THERE ARE NO NONEVIL NAZIS!! please remember this.

That picture is exactly what I would imagine that the 'face of the Nazi party' would look like. obese, white, old, ugly, shit-eating grin.
