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.
