A Dumb Leader’s Apology.

Carl Paladino (WGRZ).

Carl Paladino (WGRZ).

Remember Carl Paladino? Paladino recently shrugged off his own son’s condemnation of his ugly bigotry, but apparently, the seemingly endless criticism and calls to remove him from the school board have provoked an apology from poor victim Carl, and it’s a doozy:

“I never intended to hurt the minority community… to them I apologize,” said Paladino, who was condemned by his own son on Christmas Eve over his racist tirade.

That said, Paladino was still upset at all the criticism that he received for his original statement, and he said that it has been “horrible… watching my family and friends react to the rabid hordes of attacking parasites we now call activist progressives.”

“It’s been a sick, combative year for America,” he continued. “We changed the direction of our country and beat back the demons for a few decades. I am proud to have been a part of the making of history. As for the vanquished progressive haters out there spewing their venom at anything that is a reminder of their humiliating defeat, irrelevance is tough to chew on. For the mean-spirited, disoriented press trying to find grounding and recover legitimacy on my back, pray that you still have a job next year because you have lost all credibility with the people.”

Paladino concluded his statement by stating emphatically that he is “certainly not a racist,” despite the fact that he said Michelle Obama should be “let loose in the outback of Zimbabwe where she lives comfortably in a cave with Maxie, the gorilla.”

Goodness. Yet another one of those “great” Americans who support Trump in “making America great again.” It’s gonna be a long three years until we can get the hell out of this hellhole of a country.

Via Raw Story.

    Paladino’s parents were immigrants.
    They were probably treated like shit because they were Italian.
    How did he turn out like this?

    It always skips a generation

    I realise that was tongue-in-cheek, but here’s a serious counterexample: Marine Le Pen, current führer of teh NF (French nazis), is the daughter of Jean-Marie Le Pen, who founded teh NF; and Marion Maréchal-Le Pen, an NF MP, is his granddaughter. This is why I usually refer to the NF as teh Le Penazis; teh NF is a family firmmafia of nazis.

    Allegedly, the granddaughter is the most extreme of the three, sort-of supporting a variant: “The intensity waxes and wanes with each generation.” That’s also tongue-in-cheek, and when applied to the Le Pens, presumes the daughter’s act of not being as nutty as the original isn’t just that — an act.
