Yup, Still Racist

Hot on the heels of their straight-up admission of racism (though supposedly it was meant to be ironic, though I'm not sure how that qualifies as irony), yet another tea partier is caught saying incredibly blatantly racist stuff in public.

But this time it's not some small, isolated group that the rest of these idiots can distance themselves from to pretend they're not like them; this time it's one of the main founders of the tea party movement. Mark Williams, one of the first to organize around the term "tea party," recently referred to Michael Bloomberg and Scott Stringer as "Judenrats", the term used for those on the Jewish councils Nazis required Jews in all German-occupied territories to form.

Maybe it's just me, but I think it's getting really hard to deny you're racist when you're intentionally using Nazi-created terms to refer to people you don't like. Though I'm sure someone right now is trying to come up with a reason why this isn't racist, and I just cannot wait to hear it...
