Democrat Jim Fouts, Mayor of Warren, Michigan, the largest city in Macomb County and Detroit’s largest suburb, is facing calls to resign after recordings of him allegedly making offensive remarks about African Americans, women, and those with disabilities made the news.
The Detroit Free Press reported that Fouts has maintained that he will not resign and denies the recordings are of him. But many local officials are convinced Fouts was recorded making the explosive audio comments.
The backlash began in December, when Macomb County Executive Mark Hackel – who had been feuding with Fouts for some time over the dumping of dirt at a closed landfill in nearby Sterling Heights – released audio recordings of a man disparaging mentally disabled people, accusing Fouts of making the comments.
In the recordings, you can hear a man say:
“… Tonight I’m going to meet a group of retards. Tonight is retard night.
“What good are they? They’re dysfunctional human beings. They’re not even human beings…I don’t want any part of this. This is one of the worse things about being mayor. This is the bottom of the barrel… I don’t want to be around them, and I wish them well in a cage.”
Fouts called the recordings “phony” – “the contents of this tape DO NOT reflect my attitude towards the mentally challenged,” he wrote in a Facebook post – and claimed it was released by Hackel because of his request for an investigation into the dumping allegations. But it didn’t stop one local radio station, WFDF AM-radio (910), from yanking him off their radio programming.
Fast-forward to Monday, the same day Fouts attended a Martin Luther King Jr. Day event in Warren, when the Motor City Muckraker websitedropped more audio recordings, this time of a man alleged to be Fouts comparing African Americans to chimpanzees and making sexist remarks about older women.
Democratic Party leaders and media surrogates falsely link the Republican Party to the Ku Klux Klan. In reality, it was Democrats who started the Ku Klux Klan that became the terrorist arm of the Democratic Party.
The fight against black civil rights by Democrats is contrasted with the support for equality for blacks by the Republican Party from the inception of the Republican Party as the anti-slavery party in 1854 until today.
