See The Incredibly Homophobic, Racist Email Uncovered In Scott Walker Investigation

no-matter-how-much-greta-van-susteren-pushed-scott-walker-denied-any-wrong-doing-during-koch-prank-callIn 2010, when current WI Governor Scott Walker served as the state’s County Executive, his then-chief of staff Thomas Nardelli sent a racist, homophobic and all-around-in-poor-taste email to his deputy Kelly Rindfleisch, among others.

But “poor taste” is putting it very lightly. The email, which was forwarded around theoretically based on it’s “humor” (we couldn’t find any, and we like to think we can take a joke), is titled “The Nightmare” and tells the story of a man having a right-wing Gregor Samsa moment when he wakes up as a “black, disabled, one armed, drug-addicted, Jewish homosexual on a pacemaker who is HIV-positive, bald, orphaned, unemployed, lives in a slum, [and] has a Mexican boyfriend.”

After way too much buildup, we finally get the punchline. See, he can handle all of these transformations, just “please God, don’t tell me I’m a Democrat!!” (you can read the whole mess here)

enhanced-5224-1392852599-22Another email that’s surfaced shows Rindfleisch praising a comparison of welfare recipients to dogs who are “mixed in color, unemployed, lazy, can’t speak English and have no frigging clue who the r [sic] Daddys [sic] are.” For the record, she found it “hilarious” and “so true.”

Both emails were released as part of the “John Doe Investigations” into Walker and his staff.

Why is this a big deal? Walker is eyeing the 2016 Republican presidential nomination, and if this is who he’s surrounding himself with, there’s a serious problem. Though it’s not like there wasn’t already one.

      This has got to be the worst possible Republican nightmare, in the tradition of Watermelon Man. I thought it was hilarious!

      Why are we surprised? It is not as if the GOP/tea party and those who support it, has not had a history of this sort of treatment and view or any who are not elderly white males, or who hope to become elderly white males. This is par for the course. It demonstrates how stunted and ignorant they are.

      Well it is republicans where talking about here right? No surprise here. What is surprising however is the GOP’s silly attempt to win minority votes as if they even have a chance.

      It’s a dissgusting email, but Walker didn’t write it, nor does the article say he commented on or forwarded it to anyone else… nor do we know if he ever saw it.

      Deserves NATIONAL media coverage. Scott Walker and his ilk attract people who write things like that screed. He is one seriously sick
      puppy who should mercifully be put to sleep.

      Gee. You’d think he was hanging out with domestic terrorists. I thought it didn’t matter who your associates are.

      Remember when liberals were opposed to gay marriage and made homophobic comments and jokes just a few short years ago?

      And he’s also a leading Presidential candidate for 2016, now that Crispy von Hindenblimp has begun crashing and burning. They’re cut from the same cloth, though. Really nasty, vindictive aides by their sides, doing their dirty work. (I don’t think Crispy’s henchmen are as overtly r@cist and anti-Semitic though.)
