Greetings, members of the media who might be stopping by to see how RedState is responding to the news that Republican Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA)Heritage ActionScorecardRep. Steve ScaliseHouse Republican AverageSee Full Scorecard76% spoke to a group that is aligned with David Duke. We understand that it is a slow news day, but that doesn’t mean it’s ever the wrong day to broad brush all Republicans as racist!
So, it’s possible that Rep. Scalise gave a wink and a nod to a racist group. That is bad. Hey, you know who Democrats just love to openly embrace and speak in front of his group? Louis Farrakhan.
