Bob Kellar, a councilman in Santa Clarita, California, celebrated National Brotherhood Week in his own way at an anti-immigration rally organized by the local Tea Party:
We have got to wake up America. I know you guys are engaged and you understand. But I’m telling you this is serious. And if I sound like a radical, thank you. I consider that a compliment…The only thing I heard back from a couple people was “Bob you sound like a racist.” I said, “That’s good. If that’s what you think I am because I happen to believe in America. I’m a proud racist. You’re darn right I am.”
He insists “his remarks weren’t intended to ‘express animosity towards non-whites.'”
Thank you for clearing that up.
