GOP Censures Anti-Gay Republican

On Wednesday, the national Republican Party voted to censure an anti-gay, anti-Muslim, anti-black committeeman from Michigan. Dave Agema has come under fire for saying blacks “cannot reason” or “control their impulses,” calling Muslims “camel jockeys,” and saying “filthy homosexuals” want “free” medical care “because they’re dying” of AIDS. “Dave Agema’s history of harmful and offensive rhetoric has no place in our party,” RNC Chairman Reince Priebus said, “which is why the RNC Executive Committee acted in the swiftest way possible to avoid giving him a platform. We have voted to censure him, and we are urging the Michigan GOP and their voters to explore options to discipline Agema for his actions.” Agema can’t be removed short of a felony conviction though.
