While many are rightly condemning Donald Sterling’s racist remarks to his girlfriend, the mainstream media has been conspicuously silent about a New Jersey Democrat councilwoman who was caught on tape screaming that her town was turning into a “f—ing n—er town!” Looks like the party of slavery and Jim Crow is again showing its true colors.
According to New York Daily News:
A candidate for Mayor of a small New Jersey town was caught on tape allegedly spewing a racist rant in which she said she didn’t want her village to become a “f—— n—– town.”
Marie Strumolo Burke, who is running for mayor in Belleville, N.J. as a Democrat, was reportedly heard making the vitriolic comments on a voicemail from 2013, according to NJ.com.
In the voicemail, left by the former chairman of Belleville’s planning board, Sam Papa, on the phone of Councilman Kevin Kennedy, a voice thought to be Burke’s can be heard in the background screaming the angry racist comment.
“This is terrible. This is terrible. This is gonna be a f—— n—– town,” Burke is allegedly heard yelling in the background, as Papa is heard discussing tax changes.
Burke, who is currently a councilwoman for the suburb of Newark, has denied the voice on the tape is hers, but according to NJ.com, a forensics lab in Michigan has confirmed that it is Burke who is heard shouting the racial obscenity in the background.
The selective outrage of the race-baiters and the Leftist mainstream media is ridiculously obvious.
But maybe it’s just me because everybody knows, after all, that only Republicans can be racist.
