If Kanye West lived in Virginia, I am sure he would have the same assessment of George Allen that he did of George Bush. The above clip shows what happens when you attempt to get a straight answer from George Allen about his racism and his previous marriage.
Mike Stark, of Calling All Wingnuts blog, has been quite courageous in asserting his right to ask the Senator uncomfortable questions regarding his unconscionable racism and other matters deemed of interest to the electorate. You get tackled and body slammed by Allen goons if they don’t like your questions. That this occurs in the home of the father of our country, the author of our declaration of independance, and the primary father of our constitution, is a travesty.
I would encourage all of Virginia’s African American voters not held captive on George Allen’s plantation, to confront him in the same way and respectfully, politely, and resolutely ask him: Why have you repeatedly used the racist epithet, Nigger, in private? Why have you repeatedly lied to the world about your racial animus? Why do you expect us to believe your denials in the face of former associates coming forward to reveal your racism? Are we really supposed to believe all of these white folks are lying?
It shouldn’t matter how many Handkerchief head Minstrels he gets to endorse him, he needs to answer the damn questions truthfully in the campaign’s final days. We all know that Allen, the ignorant confederate, and insincere bigot, doesn’t care about black people. His non-answer should confirm it to all those who continue to have their heads in the sand, or stuck up their arses.
