Between the offensive remark by a commentator from the conservative Media Research Center about Liberal talk show host and MSNBC commentator Rachael Meadow, as that ” Lesbian Air American host” and the slew of hate that has been spouted by conservatives about Obama and the African American Community, it is stomach turning to hear these activists.

Tragically it even seems to be trickling down to some conservative far right college activists, including the leader of the Pennsylvania Federation of College Republicans. The millennial generation largely is abhorred and doesn’t subscribe to this kind of narrow and primitive thinking. But it does seem to rear its hideous head occasionally even with college age youth. Its shameful and embarrassing.

Yahoo News:

ALLENTOWN, Pa. – The leader of a statewide group of college Republicans has been forced to resign after posting racially insensitive comments about Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama on the Internet.

Adam LaDuca, 21, the former executive director of the Pennsylvania Federation of College Republicans, wrote on his Facebook page in late July that Obama has “a pair of lips so large he could float half of Cuba to the shores of Miami (and probably would.)”

Fortuanatly, the organization had the decency to force this idiot to resign, but he has dabbled in what one could call “racial insensitivity” at best and stocking the flames of racism at worst before. Look what he called Dr.Martin Luther King Jr.

LaDuca, who previously had called Martin Luther King Jr. a “pariah” and a “fraud,” also wrote: “And man, if sayin’ someone has large lips is a racial slur, then we’re ALL in trouble.”

He also held one of those conservative anti-affirmative action bake sales that make white people think they are the ones now victims of racism.

LaDuca is a senior at Kutztown University. Two years ago, Kutztown’s College Republicans chapter was heavily criticized for holding a “bake sale” to protest affirmative action in which whites were charged more for cookies than blacks. LaDuca, then the group’s spokesman, made a public apology on the group’s behalf.

Are these the future leaders of conservatism? It sounds a lot less like Edmund Burke and alot more like Rush Limbaugh. They may want to take a page from their hero Ronald Reagan (or at least this clip of him in this 1951 obscure number about the Ku-Klux Klan, (although according to the Youtube description the movie contained neither victims of color nor did it take place in the south.)
