Violent NY Senator Calls Republicans White Supremacists

By

Hothead? The man has a history of violence and is now trying to cut a deal just to stay out of jail. Let me guess, someone yelled something at him 15 times before he entered the building. Not!

It started as an angry blow-up, and then it escalated. A state senator with a history of anger management issues says his race-based rant was part of his fight against the "evil of white supremacy."

Brooklyn State Senator Kevin Parker is a well-documented hothead, and on Wednesday he took to the airwaves to unapologetically defend his latest shouting match.

There have been other temper tantrums involving the senator. Last year he was accused of felony assault after doing $1,000 in damage to the car of New York Post photographer William Lopez and smashing his camera after he snapped Parker's picture.

Two years ago, an aide filed charges against Parker, claiming he pushed her during an argument and smashed her glasses. In 2005, Parker was accused of punching a traffic agent in the face. The charges were dropped after parker agreed to take anger management classes.

Senator Parker is due in court next month on the assault case. Sources tell CBS 2 his attorney is trying to cut a no-jail deal, but the district attorney isn't buying it.

    Must be some kind of mistake. heh. Let us hope no deal will be made this time. Although, not so confident on that happening.

    “I clicked on some of the other stories, and especially liked the one where he called Gov Paterson “a coke-snorting staff-banger.” This guy epitomizes the Left.

  3. Denny, Alaska says:

    Implied, of course, but what’s the senator’s party?

  4. Tcobb says:

    Denny–
    If a politician does anything bad his party affiliation will only be mentioned if he/she is a Republican.

    What’s that old song from Sound of Music: You Have to Be Carefully Taught? We have a perfect example of the results of decades of community organizing and power to the people. Has anyone checked his freezer?

  6. LoneStar78730 says:

    Today’s nitpick: The song is from ‘South Pacific’, not ‘The Sound of Music’.
    The point is spot-on.

  7. James says:

    Why do conservatives think that exposing lefty hypocrisy will get them to stop being hypocrites?
    This is a flaw of the right – thinking that appealing to leftists in this way will change their behavior. It will not. Conservatives have no idea what they are up against.

  8. Moneyrunner says:

    James,
    You have a good point. We will not get “progressives” to change their behavior. However, we need to teach the middle-of-the-road people that the Left lies, cheats, steals and that they attribute to others the behavior that they themselves practice.

    “The charges were dropped after parker agreed to take anger management classes. ”
    Must have either failed or dropped out.

  10. Don says:

    If this were a “Law & Order” episode, the cops and the DA would be threatening Parker with hard time in prison with a roomie who would commit homosexual rape on him every night. Justice at any cost, ya know.

    On the positive side, the more politicians we lock up. The less damage they can do to our liberties.

  12. I echo moneyrunner. Plus, those leftists who do defect have been among our most insightful observers.
    As to “You Have To Be Carefully Taught,” (Hi there, expat! I didn’t know you were going to be at this soiree.) I think the song gets it backwards. Tribal prejudice is the natural reaction of humankind. It doesn’t have to be taught. You have to be carefully untaught prejudice. Sectors of our society that do not expressly teach civility, discussion, the intrinsic worth of the individual, etc, produce bigots automatically.
    Relatedly, this is what happens when racial and class distinctions are held to be the only valid examples of prejudice. The other traditional divisions of a society – criminal/law-abiding, honest/dishonest – give way to more dangerous Us/Them divisions.

  13. John C. Randolph says:

    Parker’s problem isn’t white supremacy, it’s his own individual inferiority. He’s a politician because he’s unemployable.

    What better to fight racism then a race based rant?

    This guy sounds like Jim Moran (D-VA)
