Who is the Bigot Here?

Representative Alcee Hastings (D-FL), a member of the Congressional Black Caucus and a former federal judge who was impeached for bribery and perjury, spoke at a rally of Jews for Obama on Wednesday. Here’s what he said,

”If Sarah Palin isn’t enough of a reason for you to get over whatever your problem is with Barrack Obama, then you damn well had better pay attention. Anybody toting guns and stripping moose don’t care too much about what they do with Jews and blacks. So, you just think this through.”

Bad grammar aside, does Representative Hastings really suggest that Governor Palin, and those like her who enjoy hunting, do so because they want to come after Jews and black people? Is he serious? I fail to see how hunting animals, for sport or for meat, equates to bigotry. I fail to see how owning a weapon, something guaranteed by the Second Amendment to our Constitution, means the owner is somehow biased against minorities. Most of all, I fail to see how someone as obviously bigoted as Representative Hastings keeps getting re-elected.

I guess the dishonorable Alcee finds blacks, Jews and moose equal. Let's hope he keeps helping Senator Obama.
