Democrats keeping up their self-destructive tendencies as another one "talks" the "thoughts" outloud 📣

A DNC member has decided to resign after referring to African Americans as "colored people" !!!

This was said in public at a Democrat meeting of all places !!

The guy's wife (also a "parti" member) encouraged the "resignation" 🧐

He said later that he "understands" his "error" 😁

Yes Watson, there are dumbies among us !! 😁

'Colored people' remark prompts DNC member's departure

A member of the Democratic National Committee resigned Wednesday after referring to African-Americans as “colored people” during a party meeting.

John Parker, a Duval County (Fla.) Democratic state committeeman, apologized for what he described as a “hurtful” term and announced his immediate resignation.

“I understand my error perpetuates divisiveness and does not allow us an opportunity for the important types of meaningful discourse — a conversation our party must engage in sooner rather than later — that help us grow as individuals and a party protecting the dignity of all people,” he said in a statement, Politico reported.


😀The Towers are Tumbling😄

Yeah, he must be the enemy of everything good, if he did not use the current, but an outdated politically correct term. Let's burn him on the stake!

My god, Bill Maher is so right when he talks about the pussyfication of the left and how it pushes a lot of regular Americans away (and to the right).

Stop apologizing!

I had a great pal (who is now deceased) that worked for the local DNC back in the 1990's. I remember he was trying to sell me on becoming a Democrat. At the time I was hard core Libertarian, these days I am not sure what I am, but that was why he was trying to sell me.

I remember him trying to make some Libertarian in roads to me.

I also remember him being very bigoted in person.

Part of the conversation we had, even back then, was I told him I felt that the DNC was more interested in races, sexuality, and other oddities than they were in actually governing and worrying about that. I felt that way because at the time I was in a union and that is practically ALL they talked about.

He told me that was all just part of the game...

I said, "your team will make gay marriage legal within 20 years tops."

He said, "that will NEVER happen!" and gave a big jovial laugh.

But the term People of Color is fine and dandy.

The left cannot eat itself fast enough.

So some nobody with no kind of influence or power says something dumb and you consider that news? That is a complete non-story.

when people screw up then issue a public apology:



Jesus.

Has anyone considered exactly why that phrase is in his "daily use" file for referencing black folks? Like...if i got really drunk and was being most vile self saying the worst things I can imagine i'd say, "colored people" would never bubble to the surface.

How, exactly, does that end up in the arsenal of vernacular that someone uses in their toolkit?

Yet it is a story, how about that?

Nothing new though. Dem party are the real racists. They claim they are for equal rights, yet they cannot stop showing how much they can't view people beyond their skin colors.

...All while shouting Trump is racist for defending the borders.

I rank it right up there with say a porn star saying she had sex with someone making International headlines for the past three weeks.

Unimportant people saying unimportant things making headlines....

Play stupid games win stupid prizes!!!

He made a mistake and copped to it. There's a story here? Other than someone is willing to take responsibility for an error?

So.... what terminology was he supposed to use?

if you're referring to a demographic of people, you're going to refer to them as a specific label to differentiate them from any other proposed group......

........ Oh, I see now. He's trying to prevent the "Social Justice Warriors of America" (TM) from ruining his career

Maybe he meant "people of color" which is perfectly acceptable. It's sad when a slip of this nature is news. Then again this is xuen so it's expected. Still not discussion worthy.

"Nothing to see here folks". Yeah, not gonna work. Not after a whole month of Stormy, sorry.

Yes there's a story here. Yet another Dem representative once again outed himself as a racist. Democrats have a hard time addressing people as people first, they see skin color first.

You just highlighted exactly how stupid it all is. Thanks for that.

Just re-arrange, add in "of" and presto-chango!!!

What does the NAACP have to say on this? Have they been given their red card as well?

Just when I think we can't get any crazier, people manage to exceed expectations.

It's "Story" enough for you to get over-concerned and knee-jerky though.
