How the hell can this racist Bilderberg psycho still be governor much less a presidential contender?

I cannot believe he has not dropped out yet.

Did he play the world's most dangerous game with Dick Cheney?

Rick Perry's Family Hunting Ranch was called Niggerhead

The Washington Post reported Saturday that in the early years of political career, Perry had hosted hunting parties at his family’s ranch, a place known as “Niggerhead.”

A sign bearing that name had been at the entrance of the ranch when Perry’s father painted over it in the 1980s.

“That is very insensitive,” Cain told ABC’s Christian Amanpour Sunday. “There are some words that do not basically inspire the kind of negativity like that particular word. I know that you are refraining from saying that word so I’m going to say what the word was on the rock — the name of the place was called ‘Niggerhead.’”

“That is very insensitive and since Gov. Perry has been going there for years to hunt, I think it shows a lack of sensitivity for a long time not taking that word off of that rock and renaming the place. It’s just basically a case of insensitivity.”

In a statement, the Perry campaign pushed back on details in the Post‘s story.

“A number of claims made in the story are incorrect, inconsistent, and anonymous, including the implication that Rick Perry brought groups to the lease when the word on the rock was still visible,” Perry campaign communications director Ray Sullivan said. “Perry’s father painted over offensive language on a rock soon after leasing the 1,000-acre parcel in the early 1980s.”

Rick Perry and ‘Niggerhead’

In this morning’s Washington Post, there is a potentially damning/damaging story “Rick Perry and a word set on stone: The candidate calls the old name of his family’s Texas hunting camp ‘offensive,’ but what he did about it is unclear,” written by Stephanie McCrummen:

“In the early years of his political career, Rick Perry began hosting fellow lawmakers, friends and supporters at his family’s secluded West Texas hunting camp, a place known by the name painted in block letters across a large, flat rock standing upright at its gated entrance. ‘Niggerhead,’ it read. Ranchers who once grazed cattle on the 1,070-acre parcel on the Clear Fork of the Brazos River called it by that name well before Perry and his father, Ray, began hunting there in the early 1980s. … But the name of this particular parcel did not change for years after it became associated with Rick Perry, first as a private citizen, then as a state official and finally as Texas governor. … As recently as this summer, the slablike rock – lying flat, the name still faintly visible beneath a coat of white paint – remained by the gated entrance to the camp. When asked last week, Perry said the word on the rock is an ‘offensive name that has no place in the modern world.’ …

“In his responses to two rounds of detailed, written questions, Perry said his father first leased the property in 1983. Rick Perry said he added his own name to the lease from 1997 to 1998, when he was state agriculture commissioner, and again from 2004 to 2007, when he was governor. … ‘When my Dad joined the lease in 1983, he took the first opportunity he had to paint over the offensive word on the rock during the 4th of July holiday,’ Perry said in his initial response. ‘It is my understanding that the rock was eventually turned over to further obscure what was originally written on it.’ In response to follow-up questions, Perry gave a more detailed account. ‘My mother and father went to the lease and painted the rock in either 1983 or 1984,’ Perry wrote. ‘This occurred after I paid a visit to the property with a friend and saw the rock with the offensive word. After my visit I called my folks and mentioned it to them, and they painted it over during their next visit. … Ever since, any time I ever saw the rock it was painted over’ …

“Perry’s version of events differs in many respects from the recollections of seven people, interviewed by The Washington Post, who spoke in detail of their memories of seeing the rock with the name at various points during the years that Perry was associated with the property … [One] local who visited the property with Perry and the legislators in those years recalled seeing the rock with the name clearly visible. ‘I thought, “This is going to embarrass Rick some day.”‘ … This story is based on interviews with more than two dozen people, including residents, hunters, ranchers, government officials and others … [S ]even … said the block-lettered name was clearly visible at different points in the 1980s and 1990s. One, a former worker on the ranch, believes he saw it as recently as 2008.”

Could you imagine if he was the GOP nominee and then this shit surfaced? Then all the dumb republicans would have to support him because he was the nominee. This would allow the Bilderbergers to successfully drive a race baiting knife right down the middle of the country. How can anyone take him seriously anymore?
