Racist Radio Rant by US Senate Candidate Chris McDaniel

This audio obtained by Dark Horse Mississippi may represent Chris McDaniel's "47 percent" moment.  Or, it may only be his "clinging to guns and religion" moment, depending if McDaniel makes it through an imminent firestorm of criticism over racially insensitive comments made on his radio show.

In the video posted to youtube, embedded above, Dark Horse Mississippi exposes candidate for United States Senate Chris McDaniel of Mississippi as just the latest Tea Party backed right wing extremist to primary a more established Republican -- in this case, Thad Cochran.

At best, McDaniel's statements in the audio sample from an advertisement for his radio show are un-statesmanlike and un-senatorial.

At worst, this audio obtained by DHM proves through McDaniel's outrageous comments on Hurricane Katrina and African American culture that Mr. McDaniel is a flame throwing racist with no business representing anyone in the U.S. Senate, even Mississippi. This is 2014, not 1964, after all.

If McDaniel bests the veteran Senator Thad Cochran, however, Mississippi may be sent back fifty years in both tone and substance, as McDaniel also favors an end to all of the funding earmarks that Cochran has used to catapult Mississippi universities into first-rate research facilities.

Read further revelations on McDaniel's views on race on our updated blog post on the subject.


  1. A quote FROM THE AD: "this doesn't have anything to do with skin color." At no point does he make a single racist remark. He clearly states that the cultural issues he is referring to do not involve race, but society as a whole. Here you go again, DHM, trying your absolute hardest to misconstrue anything Chris has ever said, and once again, it is nothing but fallacious libel.

    1. If he was just a radio DJ, that'd be ok as a disclaimer. But he's running for senate from one of the most African American states in the country. He's not Bill Cosby, you can't be a leader pushing the African American community to better itself through this kind of "tough talk" if you are white. Besides, McDaniel's tough talk was not tough love, it was ugly the way he talked about prison, Katrina, etc. It comes off as plantation politics for McDaniel to say all of these things. He's running for SENATE! You need to be senatorial to run for that. Can you honestly imagine Thad Cochran or any true statesman saying any of these things? In my opinion, McDaniel is toast. He's done because of the radio skeletons in the closet if not anything else.

    2. If you disagree with something the man says call him on it. Is hip hop music a good influence on our young people? He was a talk radio host who discussed the issues of modern culture and politics for hours a day. If these sound bites are the best you can find then I think that speaks volumes.

    3. Hip hop music is a genre or style of music. That's not what even McDaniel criticized here. Hip hop culture perhaps can be scrutinized for its impact on young people, but the way McDaniel did so was tone deaf at best for a senatorial candidate. It comes off as a shibboleth (or as the person remarked below a racist dog whistle).

      Don't get carried away suggesting that I edited the worst of McDaniel's ranting. This was just an unedited advertisement as far as the audio here, so if McDaniel advertised these remarks, you can only guess that there are worse comments out there if he is anything like other shock jocks.

    4. You must have been watching a different video...this video is blatantly racist, every other image features an African American. There is nothing conservative about this ad or this guy. he is just the product of his culture. Racist, hateful arrogant and full of blame.

      His argument is even cliche. They said the same in the 50's about Motown, in the 60's about Rock, in the 80's it was Dungeons & Dragons, then video games. Now it's the Hip Hop about the Racist culture, or the Intolerance culture? That would not fit in with his paradigm...

    5. I heard it live and it is hardly racist. If you find this racist you are an out of touch moron or so blinded by your own liberal white guilt that reality left the building long ago.

  2. Dog-whistle politics is political messaging employing coded language that appears to mean one thing to the general population but has an additional, different or more specific resonance for a targeted subgroup. The phrase is only ever used as a pejorative, because of the inherently deceptive nature of the practice and because the dog-whistle messages are frequently themselves distasteful, for example by empathising with racist attitudes. It is an analogy to dog whistles, which are built in such a way that their high-frequency whistle is heard by dogs, but is inaudible to humans.

  3. I think I understand. Dog whistle applies here because only left wing racists find these comments offensive?

    Also, I didn't hear him blame anything on music. I did hear him say that poverty doesn't cause crime, criminals do. It's that kind of talk of individual personal responsibility that really makes yall's liberal heads explode. Turn off your computer and go listen to some more Maddow, you'll be fine.

  4. Good ole MD being dishonest as always. Well, MD. Keep up the lies and misleading here. Good to see the likes of Maddow and Mother Jones are buying into your BS. Good old fashion journalism is dead these days. Instead of researching as I did and finding out who you really are, they take a clip and play it out of context. Good news is none of the sites or people reporting your nonsense are taking seriously anyway.

    Next time don't let your liberal White Guilt blind you from the truth of the Hip Hop culture. I didn't realize that calling out a culture that promotes violence against women, praises drugs and glorifies prison life is racist. I would think it is far more racist to say that Hip Hop defines blacks much as you attempt to argue here.

    Nice try, MD. But we aren't following for your BS.

  5. Seems to me that YOU are the racists!
