I’m starting a new intermittent series called Republicans on Parade. From time to time, I come across an individual who personifies what the Republican Party has become, and I plan to use this series to present them in all their Republican glory. Our first Republican on Parade is former Republican Mayor of San Diego, Roger Hedgecock.
Roger Hedgecock is a syndicated right-wing talk show host [Republican racist delinked] based in San Diego. For years, he was a regular fill-in for Rush Limbaugh, and before that he was a Republican mayor of San Diego – briefly, that is. He was convicted of campaign finance violations and thrown out of office only two years into his first term.
Speaking on his program [Republican racist delinked] earlier this week, Hedgecock lamented that “hatred of white people has now become an epidemic in this country” and is even “informing political decisions that are made.” The cause? President Obama and white-hating public schools.
While most Americans see Obama’s election as a landmark victory for racial equality, Hedgehock thinks it’s tearing America apart at its racial seams…
…Further complicating Hedgecock’s life-as-a-white-man is that public schools are teaching “hatred of white people” and “hatred of white privilege.” The curriculum, he argued, is “as anti-American, anti-West and anti-white as you could imagine.” As proof, he cited a diversity program in Portland, OR schools that dared to mention that whites have traditionally enjoyed a number of privileges… [emphasis added]

Here he is in person.
That whites in this country have traditionally enjoyed a number of privileges is true. Recognizing this openly has helped Portland schools develop curricula that improve minority performance and help bridge racial divisions in the community. Hatred is not involved in any way.
From his association with the ideological head of the Republican Party, Rush Limbarf, to his expulsion from office for criminal election fraud, to his use of projection to accuse liberals and minorities of fostering his own hatred, it is difficult to find a more thoroughly Republican individual.
