Twitting The "Evil Turban Topper"

Racism is the new cool for the GOP. It's in their blood now.

Think Progress:

Yesterday afternoon, Mike Pompeo, the Republican congressional candidate for KS-4 and RNC committeeman, tweeted out to his supporters an article he thought would be a “good read”:

Here’s a good read about the Team Pompeo campaign: http://bit.ly/cF05mp

That link goes to a post on Newsvine by Ret. Gunnery Sgt. Bob Pinkstaff USMC, who rails against Pompeo’s Democratic opponent, state Rep. Raj Goyle (who also used to work at the Center for American Progress). In the post — which the Pompeo campaign endorsed by sending out to its supporters — Pinkstaff calls the Indian-American Goyle a “turban topper” who “could be a muslim, a hindu, a buddhist etc who knows”:

As I was listening to radio station 1330 about a week ago, the radio station did an interview with Goyle and should be on tape and available to the public. The interviewer asked him what religion or faith he belonged to and this guy mumbled and stumbled around the question, never directly answering it. Like his comrade Obama, he wouldn’t give an answer, only that he was not a Christian. This guy could be a muslim, a hindu, a buddhist etc who knows, only God, the shadow and …goyle knows! One thing’s for sure … goyle is not a Christian!

Since the 2008 election of the evil Muslim Communist USURPER, Barack Hussein Obama, political candidate “BIRTH CERTIFICATE & RELIGION” information is now a vital part of the vetting/nomination/election process for any and all American citizens seeking political office.

Just like his evil Muslim Communist USURPER Comrade, Barack Hussein Obama, This goyle character is just another “turban topper” we don’t need in congress or any political office that deals with the U.S. Constitution, Christianity and the United States of America!!!

The Goyle campaign put out a press release this morning, saying the tweet went “beyond the rules of engagement in politics. This violates the principles and core values of Kansans.”

I don't know why Mike Pompeo even apologized. What's the point? It's something he believes in. It's something that he cherishes. Just go with the tea party flow. The ugly we are witnessing is going to spread and spread. FOX and their friends on AM radio will make sure of it.
