Ron DeSantis ally Steven Alembik called former President Barack Obama a “Muslim n*gger” in a Twitter rant and believes he has the right to use a racial slur since black comedians use the n-word. Um, that’s not how it works.
Alembik, who donated $22,920 to DeSantis gubernatorial campaign and gave thousands to other Republican candidates, tweeted that Obama was a “F*CK MUSLIM N*GGER.” He also used racial slurs to justify his racist tweet, Politico reports.
Stephen Lawson, DeSantis campaign spokesman, denounced Alembik’s “disgusting rhetoric,” which doesn’t amount to much. Alembik helped DeSantis set up a speech at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago club.
Alembik tried to hide behind the black comedians use the n-word why can’t I? “So somebody like Chris Rock can get up on stage and use the word and there’s no problem? But some white guy says it and he’s a racist? Really?” Alembik said. “I grew up in New York in the ’50s. We were the kikes. They were the n*ggers. They were the goyim. And those were the spics,” he continued.
Donald Trump has emboldened racist dirtbags like Steven Alembik, who thinks it’s okay to revisit the Jim Crow era. This is problematic for DeSantis, who urged Floridians to to “monkey this up,” by electing black Democratic gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum.
