What Right Wing Racism?
After bloggers began pointing them out, Minnesota Republican State Senate candidate Mike Parry deleted more than 40 racist and anti-gay comments from his Twitter feed: Senate candidate scrubs racist comments from Twitter.
Among the tweets erased by Parry was a May 27 comment about President Obama:“read the exclusive on Mr O in Newsweek. He is a Power Hungry Arrogant Black Man.”
Another tweet read, “What’s with the Dems and Pedophiles?”
And another erroneously interpreted voting laws: “Only those serving overseas can vote absentee!”
At the Republican endorsement convention in Faribault, Parry said he wants “a senator that is not worried about being politically correct. Welfare is meant to be a safety net, not a hammock.”
