Politico Suspends Joe Williams for "racially-tinged remarks"

This is the statement he made on Martin Bashir's show yesterday that got him suspended:


It’s very interesting that he does so many appearances on Fox & Friends. And it’s unscripted. It’s the only time they let Mitt off the leash, so to speak. But it also points out a larger problem he’s got to solve if he wants to be successful come this fall: Romney is very, very comfortable, it seems, with people who are like him. That’s one of the reasons why he seems so stiff and awkward in some town hall settings, why he can’t relate to people other than that. But when he comes on Fox & Friends, they’re like him. They’re white folks who are very much relaxed in their own company.


Unbelievable. Politico just confirmed it is a right-wing organization.
You know the racial climate is bad when someone actually gets called on the carpet for a comment about white people. It is a racist comment but usually it wouldn't be one that caused liberals any concern. The fact that DUmmies are outraged by 'right-wing' Politico reacting to it proves this point.

It's about time someone stood up for whitie!

Seriously though, people need to stop being so sensitive. Obama hasn't changed the racial climate like they promised us he would. It's worse than ever.

They only want their impossible to follow rules to apply to us.

tweeps: been suspended from Politico and my account has been hacked. gonna lay low for a bit. be back soon. how soon? I should know…soon

Yep.

Some one hacked his tweeter account and made all those disgusting comments.

Just like what happened to Anthony Weiner.

Of course he didn't do it. It was some right winger out to destroy him.

Okay, I admit it, it was me. I spent weeks hacking his account, just so that I could get some obscure staffer at Politico caught up in a scandal by having him tweet things that, well, he'd have tweeted anyway. But, in my defense, Rove made me do it, and my account was hacked, too. :evil-grin:
