With examples like George HW Bush, Dan Quayle, Ron Paul, George Romney, Mitt Romney, and others, we can see that the GOP - the self proclaimed party of Family Values - sure does a bang up job when it comes to raising smug, arrogant, entitled douchebags who perfectly embody the GOP's core philosophy. And this, of course, includes playing to racist grievances
This, it should come as no surprise that in addition to the recent example of the teenage son of a GOP Senator from Arizona making a series of racist and bigoted Tweets, we now have a very similar example from the great state of Nevada.
“I apologize to everyone he may have offended. My son also apologizes for his insensitive behavior. My wife and I have addressed this family matter directly with him and he has learned from it.”The racist, bigoted apples of the elected families of the GOP truly don't fall very far from the tree
A review of tweets by Joey Heck, 16, dating to August of last year shows numerous examples in which Heck used words like “faggot” and “nigga.” For instance, on Sept. 11 Heck tweeted “Fanny pack = fag bag,” and on August 23 he retweeted a tweet that read, “There are gays everywhere. Maybe that’s gods way of thinning out the population because faggots can’t have babies.”
Heck’s twitter feed also included numerous racial slurs. During a Sept. 16 Jets football game, the younger Heck tweeted “[Mark] Sanchez can hop the border faster than he can throw the ball.”
During the Oct. 16 presidential debate, Heck took issue with the performance of moderator Martha Raddatz, ABC’s Senior Foreign Affairs Correspondent. “This is why men need to be moderators,” he wrote.
He also wrote that Mitt Romney “raped” Obama and made him his “slave” during a debate.
