Here is the thirty-third article in our Republicans on Parade series, featuring individuals who personify what the Republican Party has become. Today’s honoree is former [just resigned] Republican Party official Don Yelton. He is being honored because of the Republican manner in which he demonstrated Republican outreach to minorities.

Here is an article from Business Insider which includes a clip featuring interviewer Aasif Mandvi: Jon Stewart's Daily Show with Don Yelton . It is quite funny in one way, but very pathetic in that Yelton is such a racist and very proud of it. You know you are really bad when you piss off your own party!
Rachel Maddow does a great job of exposing the Republican lies and shenanigans in North Carolina this week.
I hear that the KKK has, when it is in full dress uniform (bed sheets and pointy hats with masks) is also known as Racists Anonymous. Trouble is, their programme consists of only one step: be a proud racist.
Yelton and all like him are nothing but ass wipes! Unfortunately, they remind me of my maternal grandfather whom I detested for his racism and never forgave.

We are suddenly not allowed to watch MSNBC – why I don't know – yet their adverts play each time I try, just not the news article I wanted – it feels somewhat dishonest of MSNBC to lead us on like that and make us hope we could see the video. Each time I get 'the news item is currently unavailable' – even on her own site – I clicked on the link and tried several times.

I saw this imbecile on MSNBC. I now wonder if he still has the "black person" as a friend. The South can fool some of the people some of the time but they never fool me with their continuing assault on those they consider of a lower status than those uptight, mighty whites. Disgusting really.

OMD.......good thing he 'resigned'......can we say REPUBLITARD? Good, I knew we could.
Yeah, Gloria, we who actually live here in the South don't get these Bagger Bigots either....other than the fact that they yearn for the 'good ole dayz' of slavery.....you have no idea just how shamed we 'sane' liberal, progressive, democrats, et. al., really feel about these knuckle-dragging-faux Xtian Fundy nuts who hate every other race that isn't white. I cannot write what I would really like to do to those who depravely display their racial hatred in the wearing of their Sunday Best Bedsheets....but it does involve a tree or two or hundreds........ (EG)

Gloria, too many people in The South, apparently, grew up in homes in which racism was taken for granted, was just part of the flavor of life, if you will, and this was instilled into them as children.
The only reason the south was once considered Democratic, was because Lincoln was a member of the, then new, Republican Party. Once Pres. Johnson signed the civil Rights Act, of 1964, "them Good Ole Boys" joined the party of Black and White thinking,literally and figuratively.
A friend of mine, (white) living in Florida, went to check out the idea of moving more inland, after Katrina, he and his wife planned to spend a couple of months in Georgia, checking it out, but ran back to Fl. after sensing the racist attitudes pervasive their.

Just saw a picture of a hotel owner pouring acid into a swimming pool because there were black people swimming in it - 1964 was the year. One would expect that we would have come a long way since 1964 but with people like Yelton, we see that we are barely moving on the road of progress. Very sad.

What's so special about this article that you keep running it? I said, head them off to the edge of the earth and give 'em a push. Who needs them and their constituents?

I watched Comedy Central with Don Yelton; yes, I couldn't believe he really said that. And when asked if he realized people could hear him, he doesn't even blink. Between him, Representative Renee Ellmers, Larry Pittman, and Pat McCrory, I find it hard to believe anyone of ANY color would vote for these people. They act like they live in the dark ages. Unfortunately, they're trying very hard to take us back at least 200 years.

Every time you have a new addition to your Republican parade, I think you have reached the bottom of the barrel and no one can be worse than this and then the next parade comes along and somehow you've managed to fish another one out of the cesspool. It's a dirty job, but someone's got to do it, and you do it so well, TomCat. But please don't throw them back, they don't deserve another day.
So this latest specimen, Don Yelton, resigned or was made to, but the next one is warming up to take his place and he will be just as bad. With the GOP in it's final agonies every village idiot wants to be in the limelight, because he thinks he can keep his job that way. They'll say anything they think their sordid buddies want to hear, so let them. The more they blabber, the more people will see them for the bigoted numskulls they are.
Get everyone in NC a proper ID, have them register and take them to a booth to vote and your gallery is finished, TC.

Someplace I read that this was the third or fourth time he had been requested to resign from some party office, but kept getting back in because he and his wife were the only ones voting.
There are SOME decent people in North Carolina. He just isn't one of them.
It's no wonder the word "bunkum" comes from "Buncombe County."

"Mr. Yelton's comments are offensive, uniformed, and unacceptable of any member within the Republican Party," the statement read. "In no way are his comments representative of the local or state Republican Party."
Sorry North Carolina GOP, that quote by Mr. Yelton is very accurate and is indicative
of the true nature of your party and of those associated with the GOP including
the Tea Party.

Thanks everyone. Kudos to many.
You know, there are lots of really fine people in the South who are not at all racist, and plenty in the north that are racist. The problem is that the Republican Party bends over backward to attract the ones that are, no matter where they live.

For those of you having problems, trouble getting Rachel Maddow on your computer,
try using Miro which is what I use on a daily basis to get and listen to her show. It is free with all sorts of programming, languages you cannot get anywhere. You do have to download it into your computer. It is free.
Miro - Free, open-source music and video player.
Miro is a popular, free, and open internet TV application. It brings video channels from thousands of sources and has more free HD than any other platform.
Download - All Platforms - Miro for iPad - Using Miro
This is not an advertisement. lol. This is something you can use to get Rachel Maddow & Amy Goodman's Democracy Now. You can get both in iTunes for free as well. I prefer Miro over iTunes for both of these shows. Amy in the morning and Rachel in the prime time evening.

Yes...Yes...Yelton is so stupid....I don't even think he thought he was saying anything "out of the ordinary". This is how he & his group think ! Teabaggers / RWNJ-GOPer....I can't say it often enough....VOTE them out in 2014 & 2016 !!!
