Yelton basically explains exactly what the intent of North Carolina's ridiculous new Voter ID law is: to keep minorities from voting for Democrats, period.
There is some good news, however: Yelton has been canned so fast he's considering a stint as a jar of preserves.
Buncombe GOP Chairman Henry Mitchell said Don Yelton officially stepped down from his position Thursday.
In a segment that aired Wednesday night, Yelton blasted "lazy black people that wants the government to give them everything," one of a slew of racially inflammatory comments he made in the interview.
Mitchell called the remarks "offensive, uniformed and unacceptable of any member within the Republican Party."
"Let me make it very clear, Mr. Yelton's comments do not reflect the belief or feelings of Buncombe Republicans, nor do they mirror any core principle that our party is founded upon," Mitchell said in a press release. "This mentality will not be supported or propagated within our party."
I got news for you, Henry. Nobody outside the Buncombe County GOP believes for a millisecond that "this mentality will not be supported and propagated within your party" when your side has spent the last six years telling us how awful a black President would be, is, and always will be, and has made a cottage industry of being the Last Bastion Of White Male Privilege In America. When your side makes laws designed to disenfranchise people so that you can win elections, then you lose any moral high ground you think you have.
You lose, sir. In more ways than one.
