Irony: Andy Parrish deletes racist tweet hours after chastising Chris Fields

John Croman on Twitter
I mean, should we really expect anything less from a guy who goes on national TV with no pants on?
After Chris Fields dug himself into a deep hole with a series of tasteless tweets about Robin Williams's suicide, local Republican political operative Andy Parrish saw fit to get on his high horse: But before Fields even got around to apologizing for his self-inflicted debacle, Parrish found himself apologizing for a racist tweet of his own.

Yesterday was primary election day, and in commemoration, Parrish -- a staunch backer of voter ID -- apparently determined it'd be super funny to offer up this since-deleted tweet:

Parrish, in fact, tweeted that photo not once, but twice, with the second one directed at Star Tribune political reporter Rachel Stassen-Berger:

As Bluestem Prairie notes, the "Mexifornia" license image was applauded in an online forum by members of racist group Stormfront more than a decade ago. So yeah, bad idea, bro.

Predictably, Parrish was soon backpedaling: He then copied and pasted that same "statement" to a whole bunch of people:

The whole thing was beautifully summed up in this tweet from Highly scatological: Never change, Andy. Please.

I can't believe I wasted a minute reading this, and now commenting too. Ugh. SMH.

Republicans are "Hard Wired" to react in this manner. They can't help it. It comes naturally to them and that my friends will never change. Republicans are far superior to us mere mortals and if your skin is not lily white.............good luck with that.

The fake ID photo was intended as satire, and like most satire, it contained a high content of the element of truth. I hope Andy puts it back up. For the record, StormFront is sight that promotes the interests of white people. In the end, if our civilization is saved from mentally ill whites and their third world foot soldiers, it will be because of white men who share the views of StormFront. The effeminate pussies and traitorous who clamor about the wonders of diversity will be reviled, if they are remembered at all!

Perhaps if the picture in the drivers license was of a black person eating watermelon and fried chicken, his post  would have been less politically correct and more humorous.

Yes it's hilarious that the "drivers license" image stereotypes all Mexican immigrants as illegals who only want to cheat the system.

@senatortombstone Your truth is completely subjective and not at all universally accepted. White people don't need their interests promoted because we already have all of the media for that. We colonized, we caused genocide, we enslaved, and we to this day reap countless benefits my simply having lighter pigmentation. 


What do you have against effeminate people? Why do you hate women so much to see effeminacy as a detriment? You came out of a vagina; do you hate where you came from so much?

@senatortombstone  Folks just read this racist idiot's childish rants and remember losers like him hate when you vote for the DFL.    Stupid racist losers like this guy love when you stay home.   Get out and vote and piss in his cornflakes.   Think how mad this racist loser will be when he sees the RepubliKKKans lose again.

@senatortombstone Yes, it does. Most righties are stupid fucks who have little grasp of the English language. Next time you're in prison, work on that GED.
