There have been plenty of embarrassing Democrats in Alabama over the years, but this nutcake may have outdone them all. We can’t wait for the MSNBC analysis as to how the ugly white racism drove the poor guy over the edge. Don’t laugh. If they even mention this clown at all it’ll be to defend him.
State Rep. Craig Ford, D-Gadsden, the House Minority Leader, distanced Alabama Democrats from a series of explosive comments made by state Rep. Joe Mitchell, D-Mobile, in an email exchange with a Jefferson County man.“I could not disagree more with what Rep. Mitchell said,” Ford said today. “I assure you that Joseph Mitchell does not speak for Democrats or anyone else other than himself.”Bill Armistead, the chairman of the Alabama Republican Party, called Mitchell “an embarrassment to the state.”“While we can’t deny Rep. Mitchell the right to express his opinions, they certainly should be condemned” by the Alabama Democratic Party, said Armistead.“Rep. Mitchell’s response was nothing short of the rant of a seemingly ‘wild man’ and is appalling to come from an elected official from the State of Alabama. There is no place in civil discourse for phrases such as the ones used by Rep. Mitchell.”
Ah, but therein lies the problem. Most Democrats are not interested in civil discourse. They want a one-way discussion where they speak and insult you and you shut up and take it. It’s like the so-called “national conversation” about guns. They want to disarm you, ridicule you and beat you into submission and you’re simply to dummy up and hand over your firearms. That’s their idea of a conversation. It goes one way. If you don’t like it, you’re a racist. It also speaks volumes the Democrats have yet to call for his resignation.
