SC State Senator Calls Obama "Rag Head"

Well you can take the boy out of the country but you can't take the bigotry out of the boy I guess.  South Carolina state Senator, Jake Knotts decided he needed a little extra ammunition against the woman who is the front-runner for the GOP nomination for governor.  Nikki Haley was raised in a Sikh family but has since converted to Christianity, but in Knotts book that still means she is one of "them". 

In a delightfully colorful country slang Senator Knotts stated, "We already got one raghead in the White House, we don’t need a raghead in the governor’s mansion."  Classy guy!  And he is talking about a fellow Republican!

To me this just goes to show that the GOP really is the party of the "big tent".  A big tent full of bigots!

Want further proof? Knotts is supporting the other GOP candidate, Andre Bauer who made the equally delightful statement about government assistance:
“My grandmother was not a highly educated woman, but she told me as a small child to quit feeding stray animals. You know why? Because they breed. You’re facilitating the problem if you give an animal or a person ample food supply. They will reproduce, especially ones that don’t think too much further than that. And so what you’ve got to do is you’ve got to curtail that type of behavior. They don’t know any better."
I state again, the GOP is a tent full of bigots.
