SC Democrat Suggests Indian-American Nikki Haley Go ‘Back To Wherever The Hell She Came From’

Whoops!  Every now and again a Leftist lets the cat out of the bag about what he really thinks about race

South Carolina Democratic Chairman Dick Harpootlian is getting some heat today for a comment he made about that state’s Republican governor at Friday night’s Jefferson-Jackson dinner, shortly before Vice President Joe Biden took the stage. Harpootlian’s comment came during his introduction of South Carolina gubernatorial candidate Vincent Sheheen. “In about 18 months from now,” he said, “hopefully he’ll have sent Nikki Haley back to wherever the hell she came from.”

The comment drew cheers and laughs from the audience in attendance, but Harpootlian is now facing harsh criticism, given Governor Nikki Haley‘s Indian heritage. “Unfortunately, this seems to be a trend coming from the South Carolina Democratic Party,” Haley spokesman Rob Godfrey said in a statement. “Fortunately, the people of South Carolina are better than Harpootlian and his ilk, and we have faith that they will see right through their consistent attempts to play to the lowest common denominator.”

POLITICO’s Jonathan Martin was able to get a short explanation from Harpootlian as to where exactly he was referring to when he said “wherever the hell she came from.” He reportedly replied: “Lexington County.”

Can you imagine if a conservative republican had said that about a liberal Demoncrat? Where's the outrage from the radical lesbians of the Left?

I've come to realize that the two most important things you must be in order to be part of the Left are, 1) you must be a major hypocrite, and 2) you must be a delusional liar.

The Dems are the most racist sexist cretins ever. From the KKK to Wilson's Birth of a Nation, to Robert Byrd, they're the most hypocritical bastards to ever deface humanity. The public comments from prominent commentators about Sarah Palin, Michelle Malkin, Clarence Thomas, Herman Cain, Ted Cruz and others have been egregious and unchallenged by the "tolerant" left.

I think it is entirely possible that there was no racist intent here - this has been said of white political figures plenty of times.
Of course, this isn't about the statement - this site is all for freedom to express stupid opinions. The issue is the double standard - if it was said by a GOP figure about any non-white person it would be widely decried as a racial issue.
Of course, Dems tend to get a pass on these sorts of things.
