Irwin A. Tank, author of Gook: John McCain’s Racism, notes a long and sordid history of racism from the presumptive GOP nominee, including:

McCain’s use of the anti-Asian slur “gook” publicly for 27 years before dropping the use for his current Presidential run;

McCain’s endorsement of George Wallace Jr., a frequent speaker at white supremacist events;
His vote against establishing a holiday for Martin Luther King’s birthday and then another vote to rescind the holiday.

In answering a question about divorced fathers and child support, McCain called the children “tar babies.”

For his 2000 campaign for President, McCain hired Richard Quinn, founder and editor in chief of Southern Heritage Magazine, to serve as his spokesman in South Carolina.

Quinn’s articles have called Nelson Mandela a “terrorist” and King a man “whose role in history was to lead his people into a perpetual dependence on the welfare state, a terrible bondage of body and soul.” In another piece, Quinn said of former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke, “What better way to reject politics as usual than to elect a maverick like David Duke?”

The list goes on and on. (warning, some of these quotes by McCain include some pretty nasty language)

And the TheoCONS have the audacity to claim Biden is rascist….please..
