House Refuses to Condemn Rick Perry’s ‘Niggerhead’

Thursday, October 6, 2011

Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. (D-IL) on Thursday called on the House of Representatives to condemn TX Gov. Rick Perry for the racially charged name of the hunting ranch where he once took political supporters.

The congressman introduced the resolution that demands Perry, who is seeking the Republican presidential nomination, apologize for not immediately getting rid of the rock bearing the racially charged epithet ‘Niggerhead‘ at the Texas ranch his family once leased.

But the Republican-controlled House voted to kill Jackson’s appeal, 231-173. Only one Democrat voted against the resolution: Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-TX), whom Perry had once appointed as his secretary of state in 2001.

It’s good to know half the United States Congress refuses to lead by example and reject racism. Rick Perry may not the GOP nomination but he can take comfort knowing he enjoyed the support of the House of Boehner.

    Why am I not surprised by this?

    So by refusing to condemn Rick Perry’s “n********d” they are also slapping Herman Cain across his face as well. Classy.

    Boehner and Cantor are such an assholes.

    This is all so ugly on several levels.

    First, a hunting ranch? I mean, how gross. You schedule the time, throw the kids and wife in the truck and head out to spend a weekend hunting. Disgusting.

    Second, what did Perry and his wife say to each other? “Dear, lets get away on Memorial Day weekend. How ’bout spending the weekend at Niggerhead?”

    “Oh yes dear. Niggerhead it is!”

    I mean, do the Perrys really speak like this in the 20th century?

    I agree, Lea Lea. Hi, BTW. Everything about Rick Perry and this family hunting facility makes me sick to my stomach. Let’s hope this costs some of these Jim Crow scalawags reelection in 2012.

    Herman Cain said that he would consider an invitation to run for vice president unless the Republican presidential nominee is Rick Perry, according to the National Journal.

    Said Cain: “Quite frankly, based upon Gov. Perry’s position on some issues, I would not be comfortable being his vice presidential nominee.”

    Like having a ranch called Niggerhead?

    Repudiating Rep. Jesse Jackson’s measure can only mean one thing. House Conservatives have no problem with the name of Rick Perry’s former hunting property.
