Democrat Dallas Machine Politician Apparently Didn't Get The Memo On Civility

"All of you are white -- go to hell. Go to hell. Go to hell.... You too, fatboy."

He offered up this racist remark when a fellow commissioner kept referring to him as "Chief Mullah" due to his role in ousting a government employee.

Now, "Chief Mullah" ain't civil either -- let's not pretend on that one. On the other hand, "Chief Mullah" really doesn't invite back the open declaration "All of you are white -- go to hell."

What makes this story special is this asshole's defense -- see, you're the racists. You drove him to this. How? Um, you called him "Chief Moolah" (it was mullah, not moolah) and he claims that "Chief Moolah" is an old-time racial slur.

What?

However, in open court today, after every considerate attempt to discuss the matter further, one of the speakers shot off a racial slur. “Chief Moolah” has its roots in a slang that was used against Italian immigrants and was later used by the same to defame or discredit African Americans. The speaker continued to use terms like “tribal” and his intent to make race an issue was obvious. “Nigger” is “Nigger,” spoken overtly or incognito.

My history and record will reflect that I am one whose tolerance is limited or non-existent when it comes to racial slurs. The comments were bad enough, but to have them hurled by a member of the Tea Party, known for their racial insensitivity, was more than I plan to absorb.

I like how this Make Believe Media source uncritically repeats this asshole's claim about "Chief Moolah" being an old-time racial slur, without bothering to check any source to see if this is in any way true. Based on common knowledge and a quickie Google search, it's not -- as far as I can tell, "Chief Moolah" entered the Black Book of Unforgivable Racial Slurs exactly at the moment a Democratic hack claimed it had always been a racial slur.

They don't bother to see if there's even a drop of truth in this. They just report it. It's Price's best defense; best not to undermine him, or confuse angry white Tea Party into a killstorm.

He is telling the truth about one thing, though: He has no tolerance for racial slurs of any kind. Including the term "black hole" -- he believes the term "white hole" should be used in its stead. For the sake of tolerance.
