Alabama this election cycle has an endless stream of insane candidates. They’ve spent the better part of the past few weeks trying to one-up each other with their love of guns, religion and huge fences along our southern border. From governor candidate Tim James, who insist that people in his state should only speak English, to agriculture commissioner candidate Dale Freakin’ Peterson, the farmer/businessman/MARINE DURIN’ VIETNAM who’s gonna shoot your crops if they don’t grow, Alabama has just about every spot on the lunatic fringe spectrum covered.
OR DO THEY!?
Meet Les Phillip, Republican candidate for Congress. Phillip wants you to know that while Barack Obama was busy smoking reefer and going to school in MADRASSAS, Les Phillip was in the goddamn Navy straight cold blowing things up. Oh, and one more thing: good luck calling Les Phillip’s bizarre attacks on Obama racist! Why? Oh, no big thing…Les Phillip is BLACK! Right, because there are no racist black people.
Anyway, here’s the part where we just cut and paste from Wonkette. They had something to say about Les Phillip and his “I can’t possibly be racist” claim:
Les Phillip is racist. Les Phillip hates black people and thinks they are inferior to white people. Why does racist Les Phillip think that white skin is better than black skin? Has Les Phillip ever met a black person in his life? How many Klan meetings did Les Phillip attend last night to express his absolute, furious hatred of people with black skin?
