Wow, what a surprise. A right-wing jerk is raising another right-wing jerk just like him. But I mean - seriously - WOW. This is some awful, awful language and bigotry from someone so young. There is no question in my mind he learned this from his father. The party of family values brings you:
Jeff Flake's Son Calls Himself "N1ggerKiller"
If you're looking for someone to play in the iPhone game "Fun Run," you can add Republican Senator Jeff Flake's 15-year-old son Tanner, who plays under the name "N1ggerKiller."
The teenager's offensive gaming screen name is just one slur he used on his Twitter account, which also includes statements of someone being a "faggot," and calling a friend a "Jew" for taking credit for good jokes.
Arizona Senator’s Son Used Homophobic, Anti-Semitic Language On TwitterSee article at the links for screen shots of the tweets.
WASHINGTON — Sen. Jeff Flake’s high school–aged son Tanner used Twitter to threaten the “faggot” who stole his bike that he “will find you, and … will beat the crap out of you,” joked about an acquaintance stealing one-liners because he’s Jewish, and went by the name “n1ggerkiller” in an online game.
“I’m very disappointed in my teenage son’s words, and I sincerely apologize for the insensitivity. This language is unacceptable, anywhere. Needless to say, I’ve already spoken with him about this, he has apologized, and I apologize as well,” Sen. Flake said in a statement to BuzzFeed.
UPDATE: A source points out that Flake’s YouTube comments are also littered with offensive language. A preliminary review of the hundreds of comments shows he repeatedly called other users “nigger” and “faggot,” called Mexicans the “scum of the Earth,” and on several occasions bragged that his father is a member of Congress.
I blame Jeff Flake.
Isn't it abusive to poison the mind of an innocent young boy with this kind of racist hate speech taught in the home? It certainly is disgusting in the extreme. Jeff Flake should be ashamed. Major parenting fail. Absolute fail. What a despicable creep. And yet he calls himself a good Christian, I'm sure.
And I'll bet you a million dollars the arrogant Sen. Flake will just blow this off and move on, and keep right on teaching these personal views at home, with the caveat "stay off Twitter. But when you grow up seek elected office so you can make our racist views the law of the land."
UPDATE: Adding another link from TPM:
Sen. Jeff Flake’s (R-AZ) high school aged son, Tanner, repeatedly published racial, homophobic and anti-Semitic slurs on his personal Twitter account, Buzzfeed reported on Wednesday.
