Washington Congressman Tweets Arizona is a “racist desert wasteland” After Seahawks Lose to Cardinals

Washington State Congressman Joe Fitzgibbon is apparently an avid Seattle Seahawks fan; he also is quite the sore loser. After the Seahawks lost to the Arizona Cardinals at home, the politician had this to say about the state of Arizona in general:

Congressman

Congressman Fitzgibbon deleted the tweet shortly after and issue an statement that fell far short of an apology:

Congressman2

 

Not hard to see a full retraction sometime this week for his ridiculously insensitive tweet. This is what happens when a public figure chooses to use social media to articulate the first thing that comes into their head. Hopefully, the Congressman learns from his mistake and keeps his offensive tweets off the internet.

    When will these Stupid Idiotic Politicians learn to shut up. I know never. They are always trying to divide the country and excite race wars. Much of this is caused by our President who also engages in continual race baiting.

      Uh… NO it doesn’t. Nice try, but you cannot erase the obvious. Liberals are SO lacking in intellect and tolerance of anyone who doesn’t agree with their ridiculous views only based on FEELINGS. Lollipops and rainbows for everyone in their kook-land utopia!!

    Actually that is SO far from the truth! The truth is; that this is your every day intolerant radical liberal idiot who believes that they’re smarter than the rest of us – while they are devoid of any logic and reason! Liberalism is a brain disorder. I’d love to live near this jerk. I’d pay him a visit in a back alley. He wouldn’t be available for a long time afterward.
