"Send 'em To Siberia" NH Politician Resigns Due To "SLIGHTLY Unfavorable Publicity." Now NH Republicans Can't Prop Him Up In The House For Votes
The short, 60-day tenure of Martin Harty ended with an incredibly lame non-apology, leaving the New Hampshire Republican Party looking very bigoted, very racist, very inhumane and even a bit ... pedophile.
Think Progress: Barrington Republican Martin Harty told Sharon Omand, a Strafford resident who manages a community mental health program, that “the world is too populated” and there are “too many defective people,”according to an e-mail account of the conversation by Omand. [...] Harty confirmed to the Monitor that he made the comments to Omand.
“I wish we had a Siberia so we could ship them all off to freeze to death and die and clean up the population...Hitler did something right, and I agree with (it).
Pro-lifers are now busy distancing themselves from Harty and proposing he's so senile, he has no clue as to what he's saying. This was not good. Pat Robertson pissed off a multitude of Christians with his Haiti-contract-with-the-devil comments. They tried to cover it all up with a kind of senility defense, but it didn't work.
