Minnesota State Representative’s Racist NBA Tweet Bounces Around Twitter, Leaves A Big Mess
Not really sure what prompted this tweet, if anything: quite possibly Garofalo was just sitting around one day and realized he hadn't been publicly racist lately. Before we go any further, let's meet Pat Garofalo: * In Oct. 2013, objected strenuously to the fact that a provision in the lease for the new Vikings' stadium prohibits gun sales. * Forgot how many women are on the Minnesota State Supreme Court. * Called a teachers' union a hate group. * In a spat with liberal blogger Eric Pusey, tried to make a point by tweeting "Your last name tells me all I need to know about you." So that's the level of brain kilowatts and maturity we're dealing with here. And now a sampling the reaction so far:
Let's be honest, 70% of teams in NBA could fold tomorrow + nobody would notice a difference w/ possible exception of increase in streetcrime— Rep. Pat Garofalo (@PatGarofalo) March 9, 2014
While every other racist in politics talks about welfare or drugs, Pat Garofalo just goes straight for the gold. https://t.co/RIn7cTg1NU— Jake (@ravensfan40) March 10, 2014
So far I haven't seen any reaction from actual NBA players, who are probably too smart to get into an argument with him. Because any NBA player with a Twitter account can spot a troll when he sees one, even if he's wearing a suit.
Thinkin’ about Minnesota House Rep 58B Pat Garofalo while the chorus to Randy Newman’s “Rednecks” skips through my head over and over.— Jeb Lund (@Mobute) March 10, 2014
