Virginia Senator George Allen Calls Opponent's Volunteer Staff Member, "Macaca"

George Allen is an idiot. But of course he is, he's a US Senator. There are more idiots in the Senate than not. Look at Ted Stevens of Alaska, the biggest and oldest idiot of all.

So Senator Allen is on the campaign trail and finds his opponent has sent a volunteer cameraman, S.R. Sidarth, to record Allen's speech. To which Allen responds,

"This fellow here, over here with the yellow shirt, Macaca, or whatever his name is," said Allen, who at times pointed directly at the camera. "He's with my opponent. He's following us around everywhere. And it's just great.

"Let's give a welcome to Macaca, here," Allen said. "Welcome to America and the real world of Virginia."

Okay, first of all a "macaca" is a genus of monkeys. So, Allen called Sidarth a monkey.

Second, Sidarth is an American. So, Allen called Sidarth a monkey and a non-American because of the color of his skin.

Then, THEN!, Allen said that his remarks were not racist when asked about it. OF COURSE THEY WERE! HE'S A RACIST! RACISTS SAY RACIST THINGS.

It's really that simple. Calling a person of color a monkey is not only STUPID, but it's WRONG.

Of course, Allen never even apologized to the cameraman. I hope Sidarth is charged with following Allen around the entire campaign with a camera to record every stupid comment he makes. What a jerk!

George Allen is a racist. At UVa he often used the N-word.

I find it preposterous that more hasn't been made of this. Howard Cosell and Jimmy "The Greek" both got fired for calling people monkeys. I think it's high-time the people of Virginia fired this guy by not re-electing him.

Can anybody corroborate your story of Senator Allen using the N-word? Getting a few of his colleagues and/or fellow former students to come out and say he is a racist would be choice.

And it would be just. I hate it when guys like him lie and get away with it. But it's not even close to his racism.
