Several dozen protesters gathered Thursday morning outside a state senator's South Florida district office, calling on him to resign.
"Resign now," protesters chanted while holding signs aimed at Florida Sen. Frank Artiles, R-Miami.
....he used a variation of the "n-word" during a Monday night conversation....

Guy even apologized. Not enough. They want his head on a platter. His home burned down. Children sold into slavery.
And when Robert “Kleagle” Byrd (D-KKK) used that word twice on a cable news program, what happened?
A simple, “No” should suffice.
Stand behind your words or don’t say them in the first place.
Did he call someone a Nagger?
his name is a variation of the N word! Too funny
If his ‘constituents’ are so upset they can vote him out of office or vote for recall if that is an alternative.
That’s the way I would go but you say crap like that and you’re like a lamb mewing on the serengeti. The vulturous left will descend upon you after the lions and hyenas have had their fill.
I understand but a nation of people either follows the law or it chases every errant charge and condemnatory claim in the media into an effort to bully a result instead. Indeed, on that they probably couldn’t obtain legally.
For Republicans loathe to being seemed guilty, the hyenas walk all over them. For Democrats, look at Bill Clinton and that wife of his. Guilty as sin six times over, but they stood there defiantly and “prove it.” And Obama said “I’m doing it. Try and stop it.”
What did he say?
Bad to apologize, very bad.
One standard. This “it’s OK for X people to say it, but not for Y people to say it” is a vicious mind trick.
I don’t use the word. There’s credible evidence that it hurts some people’s feelings, and I was brought up not to do that unnecessarily. However, were I ever a crime victim like Paula Deen, I might say it in the heat of the moment, and I would be perfectly justified to do so.
Fo’ sizzle,my nizzle!
Maybe nigglet. I do not know for sure.
If I was him I would graciously go to the door and tell them to go to HELL!!!!!!
Ya’ know, I’m pretty conservation and I don’t use those words in private conversations when I’m talking with Blacks or Females.
And I damn well make sure I watch my language when talking with members of the political opposition.
The dude was incredibly stupid and should resign.
I’m about fed up with all this self inflicted turmoil caused by R leadership.
What does “a variant of the n-word” mean? Did he use the “n-word” or not? Are the thought police now after people because they said something “almost like” a slur?
This fake news won’t disclose what was said.
