GOP Congressman Roy Blunt: ‘Eliminate the Monkey Problem’
At the Family Research Council’s 2009 Values Voter Summit, Republican Congressman Roy Blunt (R-MO) blows the racist dog whistle with a “joke” about “eliminating the monkey problem.”
Clear, obvious racism? No. Just a little “nudge nudge, wink wink” to the almost exclusively white audience — and listen to their reaction.
UPDATE at 9/19/09 1:53:48 pm:
Note that Tony Perkins, who introduced Blunt, gave a speech to the openly white supremacist Council of Conservative Citizens in 2001. And when Perkins worked for Senator Woody Jenkins, he purchased a phone-bank list from former KKK Grand Wizard David Duke.
