Congressional Offspring Remind Us That Father's Day Is Coming
Everyone knows that only Republicans understand real family values. That's just, like, a fact, man. Check Wikipedia or something. It's because of liberals and feminists and commies and Hillary Clinton's stupid "it takes a village" nonsense that our society is in decay, which leads to all sorts of untoward behavior -- like hate-filled rants on the Twitters, by young men who are clearly lacking decent manly role models. Young men like this kid , for example:
A review of tweets by Joey Heck, 16, dating to August of last year shows numerous examples in which Heck used words like “faggot” and “nigga.” For instance, on Sept. 11 Heck tweeted “Fanny pack = fag bag,” and on August 23 he retweeted a tweet that read, “There are gays everywhere. Maybe that’s gods way of thinning out the population because faggots can’t have babies.”
Heck’s twitter feed also included numerous racial slurs. During a Sept. 16 Jets football game, the younger Heck tweeted “[Mark] Sanchez can hop the border faster than he can throw the ball.” [...]
In an exchange with a friend during the debate on October 3rd, Heck asked rhetorically, “I would like somebody to tell me one good thing Obama did in these past 4 years…. I got nothing.” Later in the conversation he said “yeah like spear chucking and rock skipping. The sports they do in his home country…”
Wait a minute ... Joey Heck? He could not possibly be related to Joe Heck, the Republican congressman from Nevada, could he?Oh, why yes he could!
Heck apologized for his son’s twitter outbursts in a statement to BuzzFeed.
“I am extremely disappointed in my son’s use of the offensive and inappropriate language on twitter: that type of language has never been permitted in our home,” Heck said.
“I apologize to everyone he may have offended. My son also apologizes for his insensitive behavior. My wife and I have addressed this family matter directly with him and he has learned from it.”
Well, gosh, whaddaya know? A Republican is on a little apology tour for his rotten kid's behavior? But thought Republicans didn't believe in apologizing!
While he's on his apology tour, maybe Rep. Heck could hook up with his Republican colleague, Jeff Flake of Arizona, who is also on an apology tour for his own rotten son:
Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona, a devout Mormon and family man, has apologized for homophobic, racist and anti-Semitic comments posted online by his teenage son.
The high schooler, Tanner, posted the offensive remarks in February and March. In one message he threatened the "f----t" who stole his motorcycle from a church parking lot and frequently used the N word in a series of Facebook postings. [...]
"To the f----t who stole my dirt bike from the church parking lot, I will find you, and I will beat the crap out of you," the boy, whose Twitter handle is @tflakey, wrote on March 20.
"I’m down to own some f----ts," he wrote in February, in a tweet directed at another Twitter user. [...]
The Arizona teen, one of Flake's brood of five children, has since locked his Twitter account.
Well, that should fix it. Obviously, it doesnottake a village to raise a child. Just a good Jesus-loving Republican dad with a more diligent eye on his son's Twitter account. And maybe a more diligent eye on his son's YouTube account, where young Tanner pretended to commit suicide with a (prop?) handgun. And also on his son's iPhone games, where Tanner plays "Fun Run," a game with cartoon bunnies, using the name "N1ggerKiller." (Then again, it is a race game, so perhaps that it is a funny pune, or play on words.)
Anyway, the point we are making here is that strong families with good communication made America what it is today.
