Democrat state representative Joe Fitzgibbons showed how you could be a good liberal and a bigot at the same time, all thanks to the Seahawks on Sunday.
The Seattle Representative decided to play to his base on Sunday after the disappointing football game, calling all the people in the state of Arizona “whatever he said about racists.” And then, rather than apologize for being an intolerant ass, he suggested that it was the people reading his stupid tweet that had the problem that drew national attention.
Unfortunately, his non-apology is all too typical for Washington Democrats, especially those in Seattle. Their base is so liberal that being racist or over-the-top attack dog carries no consequence – as long as they don’t stray from liberal orthodoxy. A racist like Fitzgibbons only has to worry about a primary challenge from the Left, so demeaning everyone in Arizona is fine, as long as you wrap it in a liberal cloth like “immigration reform” as he did.
What’s truly sad is that no Democrat of note stepped up and called Fitzgibbons out for his racist rant. Maybe they all think Arizona Democrats, like former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords, deserve to be painted with Fitzgibbons’ ignorant brush.
Or maybe they don’t think about it at all, since he said he was just talking his vile trash about Republicans.
