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.

RepublicanRacistsRoger 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.

  1. You picked an appropriate first to represent what the GOP has become-

  2. Scary individual. Sorry to hear he has a radio program.

  3. How dare he speak like that when many of my Black Veteran Brothers were beside me in the military defending our freedom, Very sad indeed.

    • Bless you for that timely reminder, Rixar!  (I'm quite sure though that this nasty little man would deny it.  I was overjoyed when looking at books on WWII to see that the all black [segregated] regiments brought to the UK were welcomed here – and that we refused to let segregation happen here – so much so that the US had to make films explaining this for their white troops as fights were breaking out as some white US troops demanded that black US troops leave a pub  that they wanted to frequent – and the British occupants of the pub of all shapes and sizes took offence and rose to the black troops defence – hooray!).

       

    • I second what Pat said, and only wish that would happen in Red states.

  4. My ancestors are from Scotland and Sweden and I have a hard time not hating White People.

  5. Wen I see this representation of a white person – it is rather difficult not to hate white people!  Is he an alien, or is he real?  What a deranged person! I hope that he is so full of malrchy that even his own group can identify it!

    • Sadly, the base loves him.

      Hateful people come in all flavors, but only such groups as Al Qaeda and the Republican Party encourage their hatred.

  6. He does prove that White privilege affords idiots airtime that minorities can't have & would be shut down if they spouted anything near as vicious!

  7. Well, isn't he just so precious — the prettiest little cupcake on the plate!  NOT!!!!!

    … 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. … public schools are teaching “hatred of white people” and “hatred of white privilege.” …

    I think Hedgecock is more than just a little paranoid.  Is it hatred of white people and white privilege that is being taught, or is it a celebration of various cultures and ethnicities that is being taught?  I think the latter, unless of course you get into states like Arizona where they have bannished Mexican American studies etc.

    I think that assholes like Hedgecock (You really have to love his last name, sort of rings like Bobbitt!) are starting to feel the pain of positions that so many Americans of other ethnicities have felt for years, and he doesn't like it one wit!  It is time to change or be left behind.

  8. The sad part of this is that so many who are either uneducated or uninformed will believe this mad man!
