What? A racist Republican candidate? Say it ain’t so.

A GOP candidate for the State House is off the ballot after a controversial blog was revealed.

David Reid Ross, a Republican in HD 12 in Boulder County, admitted to FOX31 and Channel 2 he is the author of “The House of David” a blog with posts including:

“If you love black people, never, never let them vote”

“Homosexuality is a disease” and

“Islam is false and evil”

The blog was first revealed by Westword Magazine earlier this week.

After the Colorado Republican party learned about the blog posts they took back their endorsement and Ross filed papers to withdraw his name which will not show up on the ballot. 

Apparently, the Colorado Republicans have no plans to replace him at this late date so I guess that is a win for the Democrats?

Ross was interviewed by a local Fox station and he did not deny writing the posts:

“I’m very sorry for the people I’ve let down,” Ross told FOX31 Political Reporter Joe St. George.

Ross did not deny the posts.

“So you are afraid of the religion of Islam?” “Currently, yes,” Ross said.

“Are you against black people are you a racist?” St. George asked.

“That is more complicated,” Ross said.

“What is complicated about that? it is usually a yes or no answer?” St. George replied.

“Because racist is a word that is thrown around too much,” Ross added.

Yeah, that word does get thrown around quite a lot…when it’s referring to racists. 

My favorite part of this story is the feigned outrage that the local Republican party expresses at discovering one of their own is a racist as if they are not bulging at the seams with racists. 

I think their real outrage is that this one was so clumsy about it.

    Even Bristol is said to have mostly only-white babies.

    I can’t read this item until I recover from the shock of Republicans pretending to have any moral standards.

    Maybe I take another crack at it tomorrow. That’s if they’re still claiming any morals by tomorrow.

    I’m sure they knew before they endorsed him. They only withdrew the endorsement when the racism became public knowledge.

    I’m surprised the guy voluntarily withdrew his name from the ballot.
