In Facebook rant, Hothead Sen. Kevin Parker accuses Albany pols of being white supremecists

ALBANY - In his latest off-the-wall behavior, hothead Sen. Kevin Parker Wednesday morning accused Senate Republicans - and even some Democrats - of being white supremacists.

 

Parker updated his Facebook status, saying he was "in Albany fighting the evil of White Supremacy!"

 

And Parker, who exploded in a fury during a public committee meeting Tuesday, defended his outburst during a radio interview as "par for the course of what we have to do up in Albany fighting the forces of evil."

 

Asked by Daily News columnist and WWRL host Errol Louis what the forces of evil were, Parker said, "these long-term white supremacist Republican senators."

 

He accused the GOP of not being able to handle losing the Senate majority and now having blacks, Latinos, women and gays running the chamber as part of the Democratic majority.

 

"They have a real problem with that and because of that they do things that are very very inappropriate," Parker said.

 

Republicans immediately hit back, saying the Democrats need to reign in their out-of-control colleague - and threatened to launch a formal censure.

 

"It's an outrageous statement and the entire Democratic conference should condemn that type of statement," said Senate GOP boss Dean Skelos. "It has no place in government. We've moved beyond this."

 

Sen. John DeFrancisco (R-Syracuse) initially set Parker off on Tuesday with his formal questioning of Mark O'Luck, the first black nominee to the New York Power Authority.

 

In discussing an affirmative action program, DeFrancisco told O'Luck someone doesn't have to be black to walk in someone's shoes.

 

Parker called the line of questioning racist, even though three of his Democratic colleagues - Ruben Diaz, committee chairman Carl Kruger, and David Valesky - said they didn't believe DeFrancisco was out of line.

 

On Wednesday, Parker said he does not regret his two-minute loud fist-pounding tirade.

 

"I went to Albany not to make friends, I went to Albany to represent my district and to bring justice to that place," he said."

This is coming from a guy who already been arrestred for DWI charges and for beating up a NYPD Traffic Cop? Only in Albany is this imo clown trying to be more vocal than Al Sharpton. Trying to play the 'race card' to take away fact Parker himself should have also been booted out of the state senate for his actions including several arrests.

 

Albany is filled with Bums that all are Black, White and Latino from both major political parties IMO because they are corrupt and needs to clean house.

Yes Racism sadly still exists but with the biggest economic crisis in the state in at least 35 years, these clown from so called state leaders like Paterson, Silver, Skelos and IMO Cry babies like Espada and Parker are not tackling their most important job right now a 'way late state budget.' that could lead to doomsday (MTA) cuts to thousands of NYS Teachers and Staff losing their jobs.:tdown::mad:

 

Parker makes Al Sharpton look like Mother Teresa.

Patterson ain't black. I mean there are light skinned blacks, but he is too light, and I don't recall any native Africans being that light. Patterson got more than enough Caucasian in him. Hell, Barack is a known half and half, and is far darker than Patterson...........
