After this man, who is clearly black, disagreed with the honorable State Representative, Hagan responded with the following racial slur:
I ran against Traficant buckwheat....so take your personal comments and shove them where the sun dont shine
Hagan was very proud of his remarks. When given the chance to apologize after the fact, Hagan responded with more slurs:
"They are so full of shit,” he said. “They’re so negative, these teabaggers."
That's right! It's the Tea Party's fault that Bob Hagan used a racial slur. It's the Tea Party's fault that Hagan refused to apologize for it, and later used profane language to describe the victims of his slur. It's the Tea Party's fault that he referred to others as "teabaggers", another slur which he hasn't apologized for using.
Connie Pillich has some of her own racial problems. Earlier this year Pillich insinuated that minorities are incapable of moving out of "the city" without a government program. She did not appear to believe that minorities can move themselves into the neighborhood of their choice unless there is a white overseer to do it for them. It should be noted that Pillich herself lives in a community that is only 2.7% black. She clearly doesn't want "those people" living as equals around her.
Bob Hagan and Connie Pillich are two peas in a pod. They want to ensure the minorities know their role, which is basically carrying out the wishes of white Democratic leaders without question. We are delighted to see Hagan helping Pillich. While those two are especially paternalistic towards minorities, ultimately they know that all of us need the government to spend our money and run our lives for us. Preferably, a government run by white Democrats such as them.
