Dem Candidate to Hand Out KKK Hoods at GOP Convention

A Democratic candidate to be the next governor of Wisconsin is making a rather strong point about what he believes to be racist Republican policies by going to an annual GOP convention today and handing out KKK hoods. Yes, Brett Husley believes that the policies being pushed by Scott Walker and Wisconsin Republicans are racist, and so he’ll be handing out the “Wisconsin Republican Party hat” to make a point.

Husley tweeted about his plans yesterday.

When asked to explain why what he’s doing isn’t offensive, Husley said, “What I find offensive is Gov. Walker and the Republicans’ racist record. They’re the ones considering the resolution to leave the United States.”

State officials from both parties issued swift condemnations of Husley’s stunt, with the state Democratic Party chair saying “this type of behavior has no place in the public dialogue.”
