Local Texas Democratic Party Chair Dan Ramos Can’t Stand ‘Nazi’ Gay ‘Termites’ Taking Over County Politics

Texas’ Bexar County Democratic Party chairman Dan Ramos is sorry if your “feelings” were “hurt” when he referred your kind as “termites” and the Stonewall Democrats as “the equivalent of the fuckin’ Nazi Party,” but that’s about the best apology you’re going to get from him.

Gays “are all connected to the gay Democratic Party, the so-called Stonewall Democrats,” Ramos the San Antonio Current. “Just like termites they managed to get some of their people in key positions. … I liken them to the Tea Party – the Tea Party and the fucking Nazi Party – because they’re 90 percent white, blue-eyed, and Ango, and I don’t give a fuck who knows that. Just like the blacks … they’re American, but you can’t get your way just because you’re black.”

On Thursday, when confronted about his comments, Ramos insisted, “I don’t regret anything that I have said since I took office,” says Ramos. “I think I am dealing with the truth, sometimes the truth hurts.”

Not surprisingly, the Stonewall Democrats have called for Ramos to resign. But the real victim here, of course, are termites. Even Stonewall member Dee Villarruba, who’s demanding Ramos step down, wants to annihilate these poor insects: “To call us termites, that’s an insect that you want to step on and squash.”
