Nebraska Republican: 'it pains me to admit the GOP is enabling White Supremacy'

A senior Republican official from Nebraska broke with his party over the weekend to say the GOP was “complicit” in enabling White Supremacy.

State senator John McCollister said yesterday evening that the Republican Party was “enabling white supremacy in our country” in a series of tweets.

“The Republican Party is enabling white supremacy in our country.  As a lifelong Republican, it pains me to say this, but it’s the truth. I of course am not suggesting that all Republicans are white supremacists nor am I saying that the average Republican is even racist.”

“What I am saying though is that the Republican Party is COMPLICIT to obvious racist and immoral activity inside our party,” he added.

“We have a Republican president who continually stokes racist fears in his base.  He calls certain countries “sh*tholes,” tells women of color to “go back” to where they came from and lies more than he tells the truth.”

“We have Republican senators and representatives who look the other way and say nothing for fear that it will negatively affect their elections.”

“No more.”

“When the history books are written, I refuse to be someone who said nothing.”

One Twitter user replied in response:

But the Representative from Nebraska was a rare voice. Most mainstream Republicans blamed video games or just offered ‘thoughts and prayers’ for victims.
