[Ed. – Cute. Is he also giving out history books, which would tell him his party founded the Klan?]
Rep. Brett Hulsey, D-Madison, said Thursday he plans to hand out Ku Klux Klan hoods at the state Republican convention this weekend.
Hulsey, a Democratic gubernatorial candidate whose bizarre antics have been on display for years, called the hoods — which are generally regarded as a racist symbol akin to a Nazi swastika — “Republican Party hats.”
Asked whether handing out the hoods would be viewed as offensive, Hulsey said, “What I find offensive is Gov. Walker and the Republicans’ racist record. They’re the ones considering the resolution to leave the United States.”
Democratic Party officials swiftly denounced Hulsey’s idea.
“We take serious issue with the policies pursued by Republicans that disproportionately affect communities of color, but this type of behavior has no place in the public dialogue,” Democratic Party Chairman Mike Tate said.
State GOP executive director Joe Fadness said: “If true, Brett Hulsey’s actions amount to nothing more than a reprehensible, vile stunt and everyone should be outraged.”
