"Spear Chucking And Rock Skipping"

Apparently the Flake boy isn't the only GOP congressman's son with a racist mind and lack of filter.

Nevada Congressman’s Son: Obama Is Only Good At "Spear Chucking And Rock Skipping"

Rep. Joe Heck’s son Joey has made several racist, homophobic, and sexist remarks on Twitter. “I apologize to everyone he may have offended,” the Congressman tells BuzzFeed.


He also wrote that Mitt Romney “raped” Obama and made him his “slave” during a debate.

In an exchange with a friend during the debate on October 3rd, Heck asked rhetorically, “I would like somebody to tell me one good thing Obama did in these past 4 years…. I got nothing.” Later in the conversation he said “yeah like spear chucking and rock skipping. The sports they do in his home country…”

Heck’s political comments are particularly jarring, since his twitter feed clearly shows his active engagement not only in national politics, but his father’s reelection race last year. He repeatedly argues his father’s job as a congressman gives him an inside understanding of politics: For instance, during the Oct. 16 debate he tweeted “Obama didn’t make the call to kill Osama… That was the intelligence committee #iwouldknow.”

1. Hey, nothing like someone else apologizing for your shitty remarks!

 

Makes other people really warm up to said person!

So Joey is a self-important, privileged, racist asshole...who knew or could possibly see it coming!?!?

The fruit does not fall far from the tree, methinks.

5. Almost nothing. Half-assed apologies are right beside it.

"May have offended"? Hey Joe, I think it's pretty safe to drop the "may" when "spear chucking" used. It's not as if he was discussing a javelin competition.
