So, what’s ‘racist’ about calling Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad a ‘monkey?’ What ‘race’ is Islam?
Stupid RINO U.S. Rep., Justin Amash, blasted Sen. John McCain for a tweet calling Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad a monkey.
MichiganLive Amash, a sophomore Republican lawmaker from Cascade Township, chided fellow Republican McCain for what Amash said was a racist jab at Ahmadinejad.
McCain tweeted a Yahoo! News link Monday morning after Iran announced it had launched a monkey into space.
So Ahmadinejad wants to be first Iranian in space – wasn’t he just there last week? “Iran launches monkey into space”http://news.yahoo.com/iran-launches-monkey-space-showing-missile-progress-003037176.html …
Amash retweeted McCain, at first only saying, “Whoa.”
After some initial furor, McCain tweeted again, saying “lighten up folks, can’t everyone take a joke?” Amash fired back with “Maybe you should wisen up & not make racist jokes.”
Maybe you should wisen up & not make racist jokes. “@SenJohnMcCain: Re: Iran space tweet – lighten up folks, can’t everyone take a joke?”
