Editorial: Old White People Should Die Says Ventura Democrat Chair

David Atkins, Chair of the Ventura County Democrat Party, wants white people to die. He calls it “aging out of the electorate”. This is a bigot that the Klan can be proud of—they hated blacks, he hates white people. Since he is also white, he would be called a self-loathing white person. If you support the Constitution, he prefers you dead. Not figuratively, but literally. He cannot wait for white people to die. Yet Democrat Congresswoman Brownley continues to give money, over $3100, to the political committee headed by Atkins. Go here to see his tweets.

We need to get the haters and bigots out of politics. Will the Democrat Party, will a Democrat Congresswoman, will the members of the Democrat Committee throw him out? By keeping him they are as bigoted as he—they are approving the death of white people attitude.

Editorial by Stephen Frank: Bigoted Ventura County Democrat Must Resign

Capoliticalreview.com 7/8/14

Democrats in Ventura County must be proud. Their chairman, supported by Congresswoman Brownley and Thousand Oaks Councilwoman Jacqui Irwin, the Democrat Assembly candidate, is about to be a national figure. His hatred of white people and hoping they die soon will be seen on Fox.

This was quite a weekend on Twitter for David Atkins, the chair of the Ventura County Democrat Party and close associate of Democrat Congresswoman Julia Brownley and Democrats Assembly candidate Jacqui Irwin. Both have his endorsement for office and both have been leaders in the support of the County Democrat Committee. Yet as far as I can tell neither have demanded that Atkins, who suggested that white people die, or as he put it, “aging out of the electorate”, resign from the Committee Wonder if he also included Feinstein in her late 70’s and our confused governor Jerry Brown in his mid-70’s as white people he prefers die?

How come ace Ventura Star political reporter Timm Herdt has not made this a front page story? Years ago the Star made a front page story of a Republican County Chair rapped in the American flag—isn’t this more egregious? Isn’t this about bigotry and hatred?

NRCC Comment: “Racially-motivated and vitriolic rhetoric has no place in California’s political dialogue. David Atkins’ hateful rant is disgusting and unbecoming of his position as the chairman of the Ventura County Democrats. Elected Democrats like Julia Brownley need to condemn his comments immediately and send a signal that hate-fueled language like this is not welcome in Ventura County.” – Andrew Clark, NRCC Digital Press Secretary”

The National Republican Congressional Committee opposes bigotry. We are now waiting for California Democrat chair John Burton, previously a legislator famous for civil rights legislation, to demand Atkins resign. If not, that would mean the usually loud and fouled mouth Burton and his Democrats are in support of David Atkins and they approve of his attitude.  What do you think should be done with Atkins—applaud his values or force him from office?
