Recently, Arizona state schools Superintendent John Huppenthal admitted that it was indeed him who made a number of incendiary remarks online regarding evolution, Hitler, FDR, and poor people.
“It was Darwin, not Hitler, who named the Germans the master race. It was Darwin who expressed approval of eliminating both Jews and Africans. Hitler worked to eliminate the Jews. Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood was given the job of eliminating African-Americans. Hitler fed 6 million Jews into the ovens. Sanger has fed 16 million African-Americans into the abortion mills,” he said in a September 2013 post on Seeing Red AZ.
In another post on Blog for Arizona, he voiced his opinion of ‘the poors.’
“Successful small businessmen/job creators are being taxed to death[…]Meanwhile, Obama is rewarding the lazy pigs with food stamps (44 million people), air-conditioning, free health care, flat-screen TV’s (typical of ‘poor’ families),” he wrote.
More posts by Huppenthal have been unearthed. “We all need to stomp out balkanization. No spanish radio stations, no spanish billboards, no spanish tv stations, no spanish newspapers,” he wrote on Espresso Pundit approximately a month after he was elected. “This is America, speak English.”
Responding to a commenter who sarcastically suggested that all ethnic restaurants be closed, he said “I don’t mind them selling Mexican food as long as the menus are mostly in English. And, I’m not being humorous or racist. A lot is at stake here.” You see, he’s not being racist because he says it isn’t racist.
Huppenthal admitted to the horrible comments posted under the usernames Falcon9 and Thucydides on Wednesday, but says he has no plans to resign. In fact, he is seeking re-election.
Huppenthal says that he does not feel his remarks will hurt his re-election chances. “In eight of my 12 elections, I have had to walk through fire,” he said. “I don’t get into this to get along.”
