The Republican outreach to minorities continues! The new Republican party wants non-white citizens to understand that they aren’t just the party of old, white guys. The GOP is now opening the tent wide for people of all creeds and colors.
Continuing that effort, Oklahoma Republican House Majority Leader Dennis Johnson used his time during a floor debate to discuss effective strategies for small business owners.
“There’s such a thing called niche marketing,” he began. “You find out what you do better than somebody else and that’s what you market.”
I’m with ya, Dennis. Niche Marketing. I got it.
“Then you get the reward of success. People come back to you,” he continued. “They like the service they get, and they don’t ask me—they might try to Jew me down on a price, that’s fine. You know what? That’s free market as well.”
The “new” GOP wants to reach out to people of all colors but they simply can’t stop their true inner feelings from surfacing.
Immediately after this comment, someone hastily whispers to Leader Johnson and he turns back to the mic to apologize.
“I apologize to the Jews. They’re good small businessmen as well,” Johnson said with a laugh.
Double facepalm. They still don’t get it.
In a later interview with The Oklahoman, Johnson explained that it was a term used in his youth that somehow bubbled up out of nowhere. He said that the comment “came out of one of the wrinkles of my brain and it was not something that was intentional.”
Hmmmm… Where have I heard that before? No one has to convince me that, deep in one of the wrinkles of their brain, Republicans are racists.
