Former GOP chairman talks of branding Obama with hot poker

Ah yes, branding a negro, just like Haley Barbour’s racist Mississippi ancestors used to do to their black slaves.

The GOP really is a racist piece of work.

Barbour offered a brief assessment of the Republican National Convention. “While I would love for [Chris] Christie to put a hot poker to Obama’s butt,” said Barbour of the RNC keynote speaker, “I thought he did what he was supposed to do.”

Not like former GOP party chair Haley Barbour doesn’t have his own run in with the Klan and other racist leanings.

This is now part of a larger pattern of racist attacks from GOP leaders, including current GOP chair Reince Preibus, who was called out for his racist comments last week.
