Al D’Amato to GOPer: ‘You Are a Nasty Racist’ (Video)
September 17, 2010
(ChattahBox Political News)—Al D’Amato, former Republican Senator from New York was in no mood to listen to nasty racist rubbish about taxi cab-driving Nigerians from a GOP operative named Jack Burkman. During an appearance on Fox Business News, D’Amato exploded on Burkman, telling him to “shut up” and stop spewing his “racist bullshit.”
Burkman’s “racist bullshit” and D’Amato’s outburst arose over a discussion about the broken business model of the United States Postal Service.
Burkman attributed the Postal Service’s problems to a scourge of unskilled Nigerians and Ethiopians, adding “most of these guys working in the post office should be driving cabs.”
D’Amato wasn’t impressed with Burkman’s race-baiting analysis and went postal on air.
“You are a nasty racist. … That’s a bunch of bullshit. And you should be ashamed of yourself and have your mouth washed out. What the hell are you talking about?”
When Burkman tried to respond, D’Amato cut him off, saying “Shut up, I’ve listened to your racist bullshit.”
More political leaders should have the courage to condemn race-baiting hacks like Burk.
