Did Daily Caller just call RNC chair the n-word?

Conservative blogger Brittney Morrett reports that the conservative Web site, Daily Caller, referred to Reince Priebus, the Republican party chairman, as a “HNIC.”

HNIC stands for “head n-gger in charge.”


Adding to the mystery, while the tweet does not appear in the Daily Caller’s Twitter feed, there is a tweet apologizing for an earlier, unnamed, tweet:


Fashawn is a rapper who uses the term HNIC in a song (or possibly songs):

Also odd, a slightly different version of the alleged tweet still remains on the Daily Caller Twitter feed:

daily-caller-rnc-hnic-2One other strange thing – the time stamp on the offending tweet was 4:53pm, an hour ahead of when it was retweeted on the east coast.

Here’s the thing. I’m not God’s gift to race issues in America, but I try to keep an open mind, and to help on issues that cross my path. And I’m aware enough to know not to use the n-word.¬†Republicans, on the other hand, seem to use the word uncomfortably often.

I think, sadly, it’s indicative of just how far out there the GOP is on race issues. ¬†They don’t know even know enough to understand what they don’t know, and what they perhaps shouldn’t say, even on an obvious issue like the n-word.
