Dee Dee Benkie, a “Republican strategist,” is a fount of wisdom. For instance, she feels fat shaming is not all that bad. “ If you’re gonna be fat, you’re gonna get called fat. If you don’t want to be called fat, then don’t be fat!” she ignorantly remarked when hanging out with FOX News’ Gretchen Carlson in December of last year.
Benkie, who has been riding the “birther” train for years, has been an outspoken opponent of “rampant” voter fraud in her push for discriminatory voter ID laws. “We have voter fraud running rampant throughout our country. And it’s the Democrats are going to try to manipulate the elections and ACORN did this. These are proven cases where they manipulated and used voter fraud,” she said in 2011.
However, she may have surpassed her past ignorance in a recent tweet about brown people–and then proved herself too stupid to realize she was being called stupid.
One person called her a “vacuous idiot,” and the vacuous idiot responded that it was racist for him to say that.
