“Raghead” Critic Will Folks has Himself Used the Racist “Raghead” Slur

June 16, 2010

Former political consultant Will Folks already had a popular South Carolina Political blog, so when he released allegations that he had an affair with South Carolina Gubernatorial candidate Nikki Haley, the numbers at his website, FITSnews.com, went through the roof.  His drip by drip releasing of inane “details” kept visitors coming back day after day, but provided no evidence of an affair.

Folks quickly switched gears though when South Carolina State Senator Jake Knotts called both Nikki Haley a “raghead” on a local radio show.  Although a harsh critic of the Republican Gubernatorial candidate just days before, Folks suddenly came riding in on his white horse to defend Haley.

“I refuse to be associated with Neanderthals like Jake Knotts.  I’m not part of that cabal. I have spent three years building Nikki Haley up and defending her against precisely these sorts of attacks.”

But the whole “defending Haley from attacks” vibe felt tacked on and incongruent, especially in light of his unsubstantiated personal attacks on Haley.

Did Folks defend Haley because he is a “Southern Gentleman”, as he claims, or did he do so because of the guilt he was carrying around from skeletons in his own closet?

From a July 22, 2009 post entitled “Defenseless”;

We don’t know much about the F-22 fighter plane except it looks pretty bad ass and could probably blow some raghead terrorist scum off the face of the earth – assuming anybody ever let it, that is.

Just as a reminder, the Urban Dictionary defines “raghead”;

A derogatory term used to describe a male of middle eastern descent, the part “rag” refers to a turban and the part “head” refers to the chocolate coloured face of the person. Other terms for a male of middle eastern decent include: paki, sand nigger, oil nigger, chocolate face, chocolate drop and desert rat.

Will Folks is just another redneck racist ruining South Carolina’s reputation.  Red Dog Report strongly condemns Folks’ racist statements and, especially in light of all that has gone on in South Carolina recently.  Will Folks and FITSnews should immediately and unconditionally apologize.

The good people of South Carolina are wonderful, caring and kind folk, unfortunately it seems that many of the male politicos in the Palmetto State are nothing more than ignorant racists.
