"...then saying he didn’t know “Uncle Tom” was a racist epithet."

yeah sure - very believable - wonder how the left wing ass lickers would react if a Republican said the same thing about Obama, and then said they didn't know "Uncle Tom" was a racist connotation.

Imagine if a similar statement had been issued by some Republican. The rope would have already been slung over the nearest branch.

He didn’t know what an Uncle Tom was? So he just happened to use that term, why?
These people really do think their constituents are stupid.

You mean a white boy said this? White commie libs are getting pretty froggy since the blacks gave them license to play the race card against conservative Americans.

At least he didn’t call Justice Thomas the n-word....yet. Democrats don’t cotton to any Black who isn’t on their plantation.

Until they resigned at a minimun. Then perhaps charge them with a hate crime.

Right, sugar, you had no idea it was a racial epithet even though you only named Justice Thomas out of the five justices in the majority.

As I recall, Uncle Tom was a man of great integrity and dignity trying to survive and aid his family during the horror that was slavery. Some insult, huh?

“Uncle Thomas” has a considerable intellectual advantage over his Dem overlord.

**Rep. Ryan Winkler **

If this had been a Republican he would be on his way out of office.
