On occasion, we’ve had the opportunity to note that Representative David Howard from Park City seems to possess some rather retrograde attitudes about race and sexuality. His previous remarks have been insensitive, idiotic, and incredibly offensive, but I believe he crossed a new threshold for bigotry today, sharing on his Facebook wall (along with the Stillwater Republican Central Committee) an absolutely breathtaking racist tirade from radio talk show host Michael Berry.
I doubt you’ll be able to make it through the entire 9:17, but the piece so enjoyed by Representative Howard and the Stillwater Republican Central Committee is the most astonishingly racist tirade I’ve heard in my life.
I feel like I should apologize in advance for this language, but here’s a representative sample of the remarks so heartily endorsed by Howard and the Stillwater Republican Central Committee:
“Blacks lay around in Section 8 housing and screw each other and don’t raise their babies, leave their children in a world of violence, they grow up in gangs and somehow they’re a victim? NO!

Did Representative Howard or any committee members object to the remarks? Question endorsing such hateful speech? Read for yourself:
I’m not a reporter or anything, but if I were, I think I’d probably cover this. A legislative candidate and official Republican Party organ should probably have to explain to the public why they would endorse hate speech. I certainly hope that someone in the media will hold them accountable.
