Republicans can't seem to go more than a week without some outrageous racist rant. This time it occurred on the floor of the House of Representatives. Rep. Todd Tiahrt (R-KS) suggested that comprehensive health care reform is a bad idea. After all, if Barack Obama's mother had a chance for a free abortion ... then she would have terminated the birth of her son. Tiahrt didn't stop there. He went on to say that the mother of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas would have jumped at the chance for an abortion if it had been government-subsidized.
To audible boos from his House colleagues, Tiahrt stated:
If you think of it in human terms, there is a financial incentive that would be put in place, paid for by tax dollars, that would encourage…single parents, living below the poverty level, to have the opportunity for a free abortion. If you take that scenario and apply it to many of the great minds we have today, who would we have been deprived of? Our President grew up in those similar circumstances. If that financial incentive was in place, is it possible that his mother might have taken advantage of it? Clarence Thomas, Supreme Court Justice, if those circumstances were in place, is it possible that we’d have been denied his great mind?
Do white folks truly think that it is a good idea to speculate about the abortion of the highest ranking Black people in the executive and judicial branches of our federal government? I don't even think Pat Buchanan would stoop this low!
I'm looking for Michael Steele, Sarah Palin, Milt Romney, John McCain and other Republicans to call on Tiahrt to publically apologize to President Obama and Justice Thomas for his racist rants.
Villagers ... you watched the video. What say u?
