Former SC GOP Exec Director Fires Off Racially-Charged Tweets During The Super Bowl *Graphic

Posted by   + Show Post

And the GOP wonders why they lost?

 

During last night’s Super Bowl, former South Carolina GOP executive director and current legal correspondent for Fox’s Good Day Columbia Todd Kincannon sent out a flurry of racially-charged tweets, stirring controversy among social media users.

Kincannon’s tweets largely involved “jokes” about Trayvon Martin, dick-sucking, Hurricane Katrina, and black people.

 

To wit:

After receiving much criticism for his Trayvon Martin remark, Kincannon dug in deeper, thrice more invoking the shooting victim's name as a punchline:

And, given the mid-game blackout, Kincannon took the opportunity to make a "joke" about the arena and its use as shelter for the "poors" among New Orleans' majority black population during Hurricane Katrina:

The tweets sent off a flurry of negative responses, which was met with the legal analyst doubling down on his remarks, laughing off criticism, and re-tweeting dozens of supportive responses.

i said former KKK member.

former as "former" to emphasis the thread is trying to link the person to the GOP by saying "former SC GOP Exec"...that link is ok, but some people forget the past links of other people, especially people who were in powerful positions. 



Quoting autodidact:

no, it didn't bother the dixiecrats who voted for him. do you have evidence that he secredly retained his membership? why the quotes around former? 

which has what to do with this post? 

Quoting rocketracer:


former KKK members in a position of power in the US Congress didn't seems to bother some people.

Quoting autodidact:


so there were dixiecrats, that's hardly breaking news. what's your point? 

Quoting rocketracer:


...and the "former" KKK member was a Democrat until the day he died....

Quoting sweet-a-kins:

 He is still a republican

 former GOP executive director and current legal correspondent for Fox’s Good Day Columbia Todd Kincannon

Quoting rocketracer:

"former" GOP.....

odd, how many DEMs didn't have a problem with a "former" member of the KKK being a member of Congress for many, many years....

the difference being that in the case of Byrd the racist fuckery came first, and he expressed remorse for it.
