Nugent should be condemned for his racism

Right wing tea party spokesman Ted Nugent recently had this to say about our president: “He is a Kenyan-born communist, brought up and raised communist, and is a subhuman mongrel.” Anyone with a shred of decency, or even the minimal respect for the presidency, would repudiate these racist vile words. Unfortunately in the GOP/tea party “netherworld” these words seem to offer solace and comfort to the chosen white elite; the 1 percenters or wannabes.

Wouldn’t it be nice to see someone from the GOP take a brave stand and condemn Nugent and his ignorant vitriolic statements? The tea party has the GOP so scared and shaking in their lily white boots that all sanity is lost. Tea party alarmists cry out, “the sky is falling!” while what little sanity and integrity is left in the GOP is sucked up into that huge vortex of hate, fear and ignorance.
