George Allen Claims He Is Not A Bigot

After all, you can't be a Bigot if you hate everyone equally, right?

Four of George Allen's former college football teammates have come forward to assert that Allen commonly called African-American's "niggers," a charge that he vehemently denies. He even was reported to have shoved a severed deer's head into the mailbox of a black family. Yet, again, he denies this claim.

Allen says that he has never-ever once in his life used the N-word.

Ok, lets review.

Allen drove around Southern California with a confederate flag on his car.

Allen reportedly was busted for spray painting ethnic slurs on his high school walls.

Allen courted and hung out with known racists in his early political career.

Allen hung a confederate flag in his office, along with a noose.

Allen voted against the establishment of Martin Luther King day, but voted in favor of confederate history month.

Allen used racial slurs against an Indian-American and presumes that he is a recent immigrant to the US just because his skin is darker. - And I am not buying Allen's excuse that he didn't know what 'Macaca' meant. It is a French slur and Allen's mother is French.

He was raised by a family that would not accept Allen's mother if they knew she was Jewish.

If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, and hangs nooses in his office like a duck, it is probably a duck.

I don't believe for one second that he has never used the word "nigger" once in his life. I don't think I know a single person who has never used that word once in his or her life, racist or not. I am not a racist, and I have used it twice in this post alone.

As I said months ago before this all started coming out, Allen may win re-election, but his presidential aspirations would be dashed. I have always know that Allen is a phony front and that, in the end, he would be proved that way.

Allen Denies Using Epithet to Describe Blacks

RICHMOND, Sept. 25 -- Virginia Sen. George Allen on Monday denied allegations by a college football teammate and another former acquaintance that the senator used a racial epithet to refer to blacks during and after his time at the University of Virginia in the early 1970s.

The accusations by R. Kendall Shelton, 53, a radiologist in North Carolina, and Christopher C. Taylor, 59, an anthropologist at the University of Alabama, reignited questions about Allen and race as he campaigns for reelection against Democrat James Webb.

Shelton said Allen frequently used the "N-word" to describe blacks and nicknamed him "Wizard" because of the similarity of his name to that of Robert Shelton, a former imperial wizard of the Alabama Knights of the Ku Klux Klan. He also recounted an event from 1973 or 1974 in which he, Allen and a third friend were hunting deer. After the deer was killed, Shelton said, Allen cut off the doe's head, asked for directions to the home of the nearest black person and shoved the head into that person's mailbox.

Taylor said that during a visit to Allen's Charlottesville house in 1982, Allen pointed to turtles in a pond on his property and said only "the [epithets] eat them."
