Noted and shared.
Increased awareness can help to break about his demise, hopefully. . .

"On his radio show last week, Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach had responded to a caller who asserted that President Barack Obama was planning to halt “any prosecutions of black criminals.”

“Well, it’s already happened more or less in the case of civil rights laws, so I guess it’s not a huge jump,” Kobach told the caller."

That is just disgusting. That an elected official would agree with, let alone put on the air such a ridiculous, racist comment is grounds for his removal from office as he has shown he is completely incapable of carrying out the functions of his office fairly and without bias. I knew this man was on the fringe, I did not know just how far out there he was. Ick.

Native Kansan here.. it's small minded people like Kobach (and the people that voted for this fool) that are such a horrifying embarrassment to the state. Climate change denial, evolution skeptics, and now overt racism. They have it all in Kansas in their New Dark Age. Quite glad I moved.

I really hope that Anthony Hensley 's call is the first step towards the termination of Kris Kobach's political career. The fact that Hensley got a standing ovation for his call is very encouraging indeed.

However I've been reading articles on ever increasing racism from state officials here to think that in some states "coming out as a racist" is the way for a Republican to get people to vote for him, because it reflects his voters way of thinking. Being an overt racist is a trait that's respected among Republicans all over the country (look how the treat their president), but in a state like Kansas it seems a sure way to get the Republican vote. Add a bit of gerrymandering and voter suppression into the mix, and Republicans take the House.

Noted. I'm glad he called him out, but the media has got to stop giving these racist politicians air time and start calling them out as well. There should be a major "piling on" when someone speaks like this.....until it disappears. They are given credence far too often by a certain cable news channel, which should also be removed from the airwaves.

Name calling or character assassination on the airwaves I believe will encourage a lawsuit.

Electing the first American Bi-Racial President has brought out the true colors of many Americans. I think more so in his second term. But then again, social media is far more accessible now which may be why racism issues are more prevalent. IDK. It seems to me that since Boehner became the Speaker of the House, he has blatantly shown the utmost disrespect for the Office of the President of the United States of America and has publicly stated from his first day as Speaker that he will do everything in his power to block anything this President tries to accomplish. Now, of course he hasn't been able to succeed at this, but it is the only thing he does, so in my opinion, Boehner is the most racist politician.

Noted. Agree with Jeffrey; Agent Orange is #1 racist in the House. The Turtlle is the same in the Senate. Thanks, Carrie.

What Jeffrey said. I feel for the progressives that have to live there among the crazies. Also, there is indeed a phenomenon where all of the "smart" people leave these kind of states because of the old racism,cronyism, and boys club that still rules there. When I moved to Florida, all of my from-Florida friends were trying to stop me and said, "Don't go! It's backwards down there, seriously!" And you know, they were right. But I do like to think I'm part of the progressives who duke it out down here in the trenches and help try to swing the state Blue from time to time. Sigh.

I believe you can put many more names on a list of who is the ‘The most racist politician in America’.

Being in the US FTB I see them every day.

Here we have an extremely sad excuse for a human being.
Not trying to excuse his behavior, I can't help wondering how he was raised.
