Bexar County, TX, Democratic Party chairman Dan Ramos refuses to step down from office in the wake of incredibly offensive homophobic and racist remarks he made last week to the San Antonio Current. His defense? He “didn’t realize he was being interviewed.” Rather than apologize for his comments, he said them again.
In an interview with the Current today, Ramos blamed homosexuals in the party for both undermining his authority and for the poor election results in Bexar County in 2010. “They are all connected to the gay Democratic Party, the so-called Stonewall Democrats. Just like termites they managed to get some of their people in key positions,” he said. […]
Ramos said he opposes homosexuality on religious grounds and doesn’t believe gay-friendly Democrats like Stonewall reflect the values of Bexar County voters. “I liken them to the Tea Party — the Tea Party and the fucking Nazi Party — because they’re 90 percent white, blue-eyed, and Anglo, and I don’t give a fuck who knows that. Just like the blacks … they’re American, but you can’t get your way just because you’re black.
Someone certainly isn’t afraid to speak his mind. “I believe I’m dealing with the truth, sometimes the truth hurts. So be it.”
You know you’ve got it bad when your own party is demanding you abdicate your post and crawl into a hole somewhere never to be heard from again. If you possess views like this about your constituents, why would you even wish to represent them in the first place? Jeezums.
Are you upset with Ramos’ comparing gays to nazis and termites?
