State Senator Chris McDaniel (R-MS) is something of a running embarrassment for the Republican party. As we’ve discussed long before, McDaniel has dubious ties to the neo-Confederate white supremacist community.
Mississippi Republican party chairman Joe Nosef has now asked McDaniel to clarify his relationship with the white supremacist community and his plans to keynote an event hosted by segregationists, and for that Nosef is facing calls for his resignation.
The call for state party chairman Joe Nosef to resign comes in response to Nosef telling MSNBC that McDaniel needed to clarify whether he had planned to attend the event or not. Nosef, on the Paul Gallo Show, also suggested that McDaniel could cost Republicans a Senate seat. McDaniel is running to unseat Sen. Thad Cochran (R-MS).
“It is inappropriate for Nosef to make such claims given his role as Chairman of the MS GOP. Accordingly, Joe Nosef should resign from his position as Chairman of the MS GOP effective immediately,” the Mississippi Tea Party said in a statement.
How dare you inquire if he has ties to white supremacists? Have you no decency?
McDaniel has had opportunities to prove that he is not a Lost Causer who has a habit of keynoting events hosted by neo-Confederate white nationalists, but his efforts have fallen short.
As recently as this week, McDaniel appeared in studio with the American Family Association’s Bryan Fischer who, as you’re probably aware, is one of the most virulent bigots in the country.
If you’re going to issue a denial that you’re a piece of shit, you probably shouldn’t do so on a radio show hosted by a certifiable piece of shit.
The Mississippi Tea Party is undoubtedly aware of McDaniel’s views. That’s why they support him. They share his views.
