Default RNC Official Says NM Governor Disrespected Custer by Meeting American Indians

Pat Rogers, a Republican National Committee (RNC) leader, is facing calls for his dismissal after telling the staff of Gov. Susana Martinez, R-N.M., that because she agreed to meet with American Indians, she disrespected the memory of Col. George Armstrong Custer.

Custer is infamous for being a U.S. Army commander in the mid-1800s who killed many American Indians during what are historically known as the Indian Wars. He was killed at the Battle of the Little Bighorn in 1876.

Rogers is a GOP lobbyist and partner with the Modrall law firm of Albuquerque, New Mexico. A recent member of the RNC Executive Committee, he is also an RNC National Committeeman for his state. He is currently in Tampa, Florida preparing for the upcoming Republican National Convention.

[…]

‘The state is going to hell,’ Rogers wrote in part of the e-mail. ‘Col. [Allen] Weh would not have dishonored Col. Custer in this manner.’ Weh was a Republican candidate for governor of New Mexico in 2010 who ran against Martinez.

The e-mail was sent following a meeting in June between Martinez and the state’s tribes, according to ProgressNow. It was directed to senior members of the governor’s administration. The governor’s office has not responded to requests for comment.

‘George Armstrong Custer may be regarded as a kind of military hero by Pat Rogers, but to the Native peoples of America Custer represents the bellicose imperialism that was responsible for the systematic slaughter of American Indians throughout this continent,’ according to an e-mail being circulated by ProgressNow.

‘Such a blatantly racist statement against our Native people is offensive from anyone, but to come from a national GOP leader and lobbyist for some of our country’s largest corporations is indefensible,’ said Pat Davis, executive director of ProgressNow New Mexico, in a statement.

Between this and the "Judge" from Lubbock, Texas who wants to raise taxes in order to hire more deputies to fight the UN occupation that will occur after Obama is re-elected, I am comforted that the Southwest has left my homeland in the South far behind as the new home office for bats**t craziness

that racist piece of shit can suck my dick. he also probably thinks it was a disgrace that the buffalo soldiers werent enslaved and were allowed to serve in the calvary.

i'd love to hear his thoughts on mexicans or the european spainiards who founded santa fe long before charleston or jamestown were a blip in the radar.

New mexico has gotta be one of the least racist states in the nation, and its shame when assclowns such as him tarnish that reputation.

way to go RNC!

Peggy Noonan of the Wall Street Journal has one you will like

It is good that Joe Biden is going to the Republican National Convention to hold high the flag of his party. People make fun of his gaffes, of his embarrassing verbal forays, but he's no fool and he knows how to take it to the other guy. The speech he is working on, to be given in the heart of downtown, just across from the convention site, will be stirring and stentorian: "All free men, wherever they may live, are citizens of Tampa, and, therefore, as a free man, I take pride in the words, 'Ich bin ein Tampon.'"

http://online.wsj.com/article/declarations.html

To the younger generation here - to get the joke you have to be aware of this speech made by John Kennedy in what was then "West Berlin" in 1963
