County Commissioner Has No Idea Why He Used a Racial Slur

The Nemaha County Board of Commissioners was wrestling with an issue of tremendous importance, whether to replace some of the mulch on their office grounds with decorative rocks or not. Commissioner Bob Hutton suddenly decided to offer a devastating argument against doing so:

Bob Hutton, who represents portions of Nemaha County as a commissioner, raised safety concerns that kids might throw decorative rocks if they were used to replace mulch on the courthouse lawn, reported US92.

“They could use them in their ‘n****r guns,’” Hutton said.

County Clerk Joyce Oakley immediately rebuked the Republican official and Board Chairman Dennis Wittman said the comment was not appropriate.

Hutton admitted it was a mistake after a few moments, the radio station reported.

He later said he wasn’t sure why he used the racial slur.

“I don’t (know),” Hutton said. “It just come to me that way, so that’s all I got.”

I’m sure he’s not a racist, though. I bet it’s all a false flag operation. Obama and George Soros have invented a mind control machine that makes people say things that appear racist as part of their secret Muslim campaign to destroy America with gay marriage and Agenda 21.

    You know, you might have an NFL-like suit on your hands, Ed. Reading this blog, like playing football, can result in concussions … from all the facepalms.

    He later said he wasn’t sure why he used the racial slur.

    Here’s a crazy notion, he used a racial slur because he was racist.

    Just sayin’.

  • whheydt

    Odds are pretty good that he grew up in a time and place where that slur was in common use and he didn’t actually *think* about using it…it just came naturally to him. (And, yes, I lived in place where that word was in common use. It just never became habitual and as I grew up, I understood that it isn’t a word to use…ever.)

    @3 In context, that’s obviously not the only reason.

  • StevoR

    Force of habit? I wonder how often he uses the word either aloud or in his head*? Be interesting to know if its the first time he’s been caught like that?

    * Natch we can’t know that latter one without some sorta mind-reading device that don’t yet exist.

    Operation Jade Helm is involved in there too, no doubt.

    Pleading temporary Tourette’s Syndrome, but what if occasional idiopathic Tourette phenomena or some equivalently mortifying neuro-glitches could provoke similarly horrifying, involuntary utterances? I wouldn’t think it happened in this case because he probably would have expressed immediate horror with himself.

    I missed it–did some negro invent a gun that shoots rocks?

  • sugarfrosted

    @9 I think it’s a racist slang term for slingshot, because you know those Africans, too simple to use guns.

  • scienceavenger

    @3 I thought the same thing. When you are raised in a racist culture, there are going to be a lot of phrases that you’ll slip and use long after you’ve learned you shouldn’t. It took me years to stop saying n*gg*r-rigging, or laughing at the blatant racism of Animal House.
