So what do I suppose? If she is touting this blog, is she also supporting these racist remarks?
Well I don’t know whether Sekula Gibbs is a racist or not, but for a congressional candidate to promote a blog that is patently racist does not look right.
OK, the specifics. The blog is called “Rhymes With Right” and it is principally run by a social studies teacher who teaches eager young minds in Clear Creek ISD. [No links here, go to Shelley’s website]
A particularly good distillation of the racist remarks can be found at this progressive Democrat’s website. I will extract a few for your edification below [some remarks are just so over the top that it violates the Half Empty PG-13 rating].
"That's one more dead terrorist in Hell with Allah."
"In return, we will ship the Arab Muslims in the United States -- egardless of their citizenship -- back to the Middle East...They and their relatives back in their homelands have shown their utter inablility (sic) to live at peace with neighbors who are different from themselves....After all, if the Jews are not a good fit in the Middle East, why should the unassimilable Muslims be welcome in America?"
"Sorry, no respect for any ethnicity or religion with this scumbag...Just following the example of Muhammad, I guess. I recall that he liked sex with little girls, too. Would somebody please remind me what is there in Islam that is good and noble?"
"Why are we sending one thin dime to a backwater, Third World hell-hole like New Orleans?"
And I also can’t explain why Shelley Sekula Gibbs’ campaign lists this racist blog alongside articles from more prominent mainstream media as it does. It’s kind of like going to a Mercedes dealsrship and finding an old Yugo on the showroom floor alongside brand new Mercedes-Benzes.
So clearly, things aren’t adding up. Gee, it must be CD-22 gearing up for another election year with politics as usual.
