Had someone with this type of attitude ran for congressional office?


"I'm sick of these freeloading welfare dopes that hang around the streets all because of our spook president that was elected into office. If we just let people who only pay taxes vote, the situation in Washington would be comparable to what our Founding Fathers had intended. And don't get me started on those illegal losers. Those sub-human species should be deported to whatever they came from. Muslims should also practiced the Christian life or get the f out of this great nation. I hate our political correctness has pussified our nation, leading the country into deficit while they get all the dough and white tax payers get none of the slice. All you need to do in America to succeed is do be lazy and act entitled because your some political correct tool who believes who believes he deserves more than white middle class males. And Obama, please get the f out of this country you military-spitting mass murder monkey. You'll never be a true American to us real Americans. I would never dear to shake the muslim in chief hand in any public appearance whatsoever".

Fox News would praise them as the noble philosophers of our time and draft them to run President.

“This cannot be.” Snap said in a crisp voice as blood dripped from his hand where Dumblydore’s wand had shot him. “There must be other factors.”

“YOU DON’T HAVE ANY!” I yelled in madly.

You would see him depicted in a robe and hood and, standing next to a burning cross, in editorial cartoons.

That's like something that Ted Cruz might say at the 2016 RNC if he gets the nomination (LOL!).

I don't understand the youth of today with their playpods and pierced scrotums and whatnot. However, one thing has remained the same over the years and that is apathy towards the political process

That Republican would lead in the polls by 5-10% for a while, because some people think like this. But they may not win.

A Republican? Who knows? Sounds more like something a Democrat would say. Didn't they have a Klansman as Obama's 3rd in line after Biden and Pelosi?

Fox News and Talk Radio would furiously defend him as a great patriot speaking truth to power. He would almost certainly be invited to speak at the next three CPACs. And there are plenty of places around the country where he could win a congressional seat.

The update is like if Oscar Wilde wrote a parody of an Horatio Alger novel.

Do you think even the racial context of the comment would fly in even heavily Republican areas?  Am I underestimating the racism of many voters in this country or could this be realistic scenario in which such a candidate could be elected into congress?

The part with only tax payers being able to vote doesn't even make sense because everyone pays some form of tax, whether it be sales or income. Back when Monroe was President, yes, not everyone paid taxes.

Byrd? He was in the 40's, he later apologized for it. Whether you think he was still believing it was the question.

Yes and yes. Just look at how Fox News has covered Ferguson and Black Lives Matter. Also look at what's happened with Phil Robertson from Duck Dynasty since his interview, becoming something of a regular at conservative and Republican events - his remarks on gays got all the attention due to the crude language he used, but his remarks on race were far more odious.
