Dude is pretty nasty


A GOP candidate for the solitary US Congressional seat in South Dakota seems to be hoping against hope that an act of terrorism will help prop up his prospects. Rather than do the normal thing like making it into a song (“Bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb bomb Iran” has a catchy beat!), or praying his horrifying desires to sweet Baby Jesus, Neal Tapio decided to say this shit out loud. And it was caught on tape.

In the recordings obtained by Huffington Post, Tapio discusses how acts of terrorism will help boost his numbers, and help him race ahead of the competition:

I can start in a little town like Aberdeen outside of the media glare. I can move it to Watertown, practice a little more, and then by the time I get to Sioux Falls, I will have said this thousands of times. And then Dusty is just going to be so far behind, that they won’t even realize we are running for the same race. And then all that has to happen is that there will be one more terrorist attack between now and then and I will be the, just by the Trump effect, I will be the candidate. That’s the way I look at it.

Oh, look how clever he is, everybody!! He has his speechifying all written up and prepared so that he can use bloody violence to politicize terrorism for his own personal gain. He is like the Devil with a Mount Trumpmore T-shirt stall. While it might seem like a fine idea to use terrorism to try to become “the” candidate, it’s a really really bad idea to get caught on tape discussing the devious details. Using terrorism as a game plan to get the voters on your side with practiced rhetoric is actually fucking disgusting and entirely evil. We hope you fail miserably and suffer harsh things!

This is not the first time Tapio has faced questions about his dreams of terrorism coattails driving his campaign to victory. KELO, a newsradio station, first reported on these recordings and Tapio responded in a lengthy Facebook post on April 7.

Tapio clearly denies he was advocating for terrorism, which is fine, because that was never the accusation. He was accused of saying it would help his campaign against Secretary of State Shantel Krebs and businessman Dusty Johnson, but, especially Dusty. The primary is June 5, so, it makes sense that he feels the need to deny his own words mean what they mean when said in that order.

To suggest I am advocating for a terror attack is a disgusting smear and you should be ashamed of yourself. Anyone that would even suggest that is a vile and disgusting individual not worthy of being taken seriously. I would caution you that questions like that prove that you do not take journalism or this issue seriously. You risk linking your left wing background as a former Democrat political operative with gotcha hit piece political journalism that people see right through.

Apparently Tapio forgot that we can actually hear him on the recordings seriously discussing how helpful terrorism would be to his chances.

Let’s review:

And then all that has to happen is that there will be one more terrorist attack between now and then and I will be the, just by the Trump effect, I will be the candidate.

It’s pretty clear what he was not just hinting at, but boldly stating. Terrorism will cause a “Trump Effect” and he will be the “candidate.” It might be time for Tapio to review what words actually mean, because “disgusting smear” would imply that lies were told and we see no lies going on. Except from Tapio. Because he is a liar.

Once upon a time, Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers at least claimed to focus their efforts entirely on immigrants involved in criminal activity. Those days are long gone, and now they're going after anyone, including law-abiding people who are just trying to drive their pregnant wives to the hospital to give birth.

I'd mentioned this week that there's definitely probably a tape out there of Donald Trump referring to a black person as a "nigger," because Trump is a racist and that's sort of what they do. Sarah Huckabee Sanders won't even affirmatively deny such a tape exists, and she's from the "two plus two equals five" school of communications management. I also speculated that once the tape was released, Republican supporters of the president would flock to defend his vile words: "Hey, if you rearrange the letters in "nigger," you get "ginger" and who doesn't like redheads and the occasional Dark 'n' Stormy?"

The shameful display has already started and the supposed recording isn't even available for pre-order on iTunes. Georgia State Senator Michael Williams stated in appearance on CNN's "New Day Saturday" that if Trump -- who's the president, by the way -- did say "nigger," it would certainly concern him as an "individual" but "not necessarily as a person that is running our country." So, uh, what the hell is that? This has been a standard argument from Republicans ever since Trump crawled his way out of the sewers of birtherism and onto a major political stage: "We think Trump is a terrible human being -- seriously, we have to shower immediately after meeting with him -- but we still think he's a suitable steward of the most powerful nation on the planet."

Normally, you'd think this would work the other way. You know, your brother-in-law is a nice enough guy. Your sister certainly could've done worse. You don't mind the slightly rambling sports-ball discussions with him at family gatherings. He's good for looking after the kids (as long as your sister is present or reachable by cell), but you'd never invest your hard-earned money into whatever half-assed business venture he's trying to get off the ground nor would you back his run for any serious political office.

I've long had issues with the "brilliant asshole" archetype in TV and movies. It's almost always a white male (because women and minorities must be perfect) whose emotional immaturity and overall jerkass behavior we're told to overlook because they're so goshdarned awesome. Do you want some PC "cuck" or do you want Dr. House to figure out that the MS symptoms you're suffering are really just because you ate a stale doughnut? Sherlock Holmes doesn't have time for your feelings or social niceties -- not while he's solving mysteries and being dreamy.

Trump, however, isn't "brilliant." He's just a guy who says "nigger." They're hardly a scarcity in the market. You don't even have to venture out to a klan rally to find one. You can order online -- same day social media delivery.

Williams argues that Trump didn't use the word "nigger" when he was in the "office of the president." It was just some youthful indiscretion when he was almost 60. I don't even know where he's going with this. Does he think Trump has changed? He routinely insults and belittles black people. He also calls black NFL players who peacefully protest "sons of bitches." Was that his way of weaning off calling us "niggers"? Has he been wearing a "nigger" patch on his arm to control his cravings for the racial epithet?

"He used the word in his personal life," Williams said. (It was actually in a workplace context -- SER) "Now if he were president and were to go on TV and use the n-word, I'd have a major problem with that."

It's heartening repulsive to see that Williams draws the line at Trump holding an official "nigger" press conference. I think once we reach that point, Trump will probably also reveal that his buddies on the Supreme Court discovered a typo in the Thirteenth Amendment and black folks' work-life balance will start to really suffer.

"I will always say using the n-word is wrong, and it's bad, and should never be accepted in our society. But just because (Trump) might have done it years ago, not as our president, doesn't mean we need to continue to berate him because he used it," GOP state Sen. Michael Williams, who is white, told CNN's Victor Blackwell on "New Day Saturday."

Blackwell, who is black, had to sit there and listen to this crap from a white elected official who is just 45 years old. You know, the word "nigger" doesn't even appear in the Dred Scott decision, for example, but that's not necessary for reasonable people to understand that it was racist as hell. We all know Trump is racist, but now Republicans can't even repudiate the worst demonstrations of his racial animus. The first black president hasn't even been out of office for two full years and already "nigger" is being redefined. What would once end a campaign in its tracks when Blackwell and I were growing up is now just an "oops, my bad."
