Former SC GOP Executive Director Todd Kincannon Defends His Racist Remarks About Trayvon Martin
During the Super Bowl Sunday evening, Kincannon sent out a wave of racially charged tweets bashing the game, including one that referenced Trayvon Martin. Kincannon defended his tweets, claiming that they were nothing more than satire, but that they highlight just how politicized the Trayvon Martin case has become.
“The left has decided that Trayvon Martin was just this perfect little angel,” Kincannon said. “He was a thug. He tweeted about drug use. This guy, he was a criminal, and the left has decided to make him some sort of martyr. That is what I don’t understand.”
Kincannon’s comments about Martin didn’t end on Super Bowl Sunday. The next day, Kincannon went as far as comparing Martin to Columbine gunmen Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris and later said that it was just satire that he said, “to see people go nuts.
Freedom of speech is one thing but to spew idiotic comments on a subject that has little knowledge of is sad but then again, he probably has nothing better to do with his time.
