John Murtha: Pennsylvanians Are "REDNECKS"
Dem Leader John Murtha Says Voters In His District in Pennsylvania Are Rednecks.
Boy, Pennsylvanians can’t win with the Democrats this year!
First Obama calls them “gun-toting, bible-thumpers” out in Hollywood. Then John Murtha calls them racists.
Now, Rep. John Murtha calls voters in his Pennsylvania district “rednecks.”
U.S. Rep. John Murtha is calling many of the people who put him in office “rednecks.”
The news comes one week after Murtha claimed the area is racist, then apologized for that comment.
In explaining his comments about racism, Murtha told WTAE it’s difficult for many in the area to change. Murtha said that just five to 10 years ago the entire area was “redneck.”
Now Murtha said only certain segments of the population are holding on to those racist feelings.
Just days after classifying western Pennsylvania as racist, Murtha took a step back from those comments, albeit a small one.
WTAE has video.
Here’s Murtha’s brilliant remarks from last week saying his district is full of racists:
UPDATE: Here’s some welcome news.
William Russell is leading John Murtha in the latest poll. Guess you can only berate your own constituents so many times before they drop you like a rock.
