Skip to comments.Arizona Senator Jeff Flake's son Tanner busted for tweeting racist slurs (Blackmail?)
Posted on 06/13/2013 6:25:03 AM PDT by PJ-Comix
The offensive language used by Senator Jeff Flake's teenage son on the Internet has resulted in a public apology from both father and son.
Im very disappointed in my teenage sons words, and I sincerely apologize for the insensitivity. This language is unacceptable, anywhere. Needless to say, Ive already spoken with him about this, he has apologized, and I apologize as well, Senator Flake said in a statement to BuzzFeed .
Before Tanner Flake locked his Twitter account, his public tweets regularly contained offensive slurs, according to Buzzfeed.
On his Twitter account, Flake also posted screenshots of games revealing his username, "n1ggerkiller."
Flake's online lingo wasn't restricted to just Twitter, however.
In YouTube comments, Flake has repeatedly called other users "n*****" and "f****t" and referred to Mexicans as the "scum of the Earth."
On several occasions, Flake even bragged about his father's position in Congress.
All of Flake's comments can be found on Buzzfeed .
Everybody is compromised.
if he were my son, i would be disappointed in his stupidity...
I would suggest that it is simply a teenager who is angry with his parent and did something to hurt that parent.
If this is true, this kid sounds pretty unstable, but then again how hard would it be for the NSA to hack this guy’s account? They could post anything they wanted. Would be a powerful weapon against its enemies.
What do you expect? That whole family are Flakes.
Even St Skiddles had nigger in his FB account name!
Free is free, equal is equal. This is neither!
What law does this offensive behavior violate?
hard to “blackmail” someone when the dope is making the racist comments on twitter...
Actually we just found out about those twitter accounts. How long has PRISM known about it? That’s what counts.
Look at the dates of the kid’s posts. They go back a year.
I hope Flake has enough fatherly balls to take away all his son’s electronic gizmos.
But no matter, you're still not allowed to say it. In fact, you're not allowed to think it."
The Senators ‘web sire’ is shut down this morning.
“why are Negroes permitted to say nigger, and Caucasians not?”
I have occasion to travel with a Black man who is a personal friend. I am constantly amazed at his use of this word. We walk into a convenience store while on the road and he uses that term to “greet” every “brother” he comes in contact with while we are in the place. It’s always “Hey nigger, how’s it goin,” or similar phrases. I would never even think to “greet” every white person under the same circumstances. His children are grown and don’t live with him. When they show up it’s the same “greeting.”
If the House does not stand against Boehner then the Republic is lost. Whatever the Senate passes is but a Trojan Horse to get the House to pass a bill with stronger border control and no amnesty, no freebies, a strong bill. But when it goes to conference then the betrayal begins, and the Republic dies.
He threw Boehner, Ryan, Rubio, Flake and even "Runt" Paul under his bus this morning. I guess he also has risked his own furure, and that of his family.
While I firmly believe there is not substitute for good parenting I feel that too many parents feel that sense of shame when their kids do something viewed as wrong or immoral and it reflect on the parenthood abilities and own personal stance, I know I have. To paraphrase a movie quote, “you have your kid for a limited amount each day and cannot compete with the barrage of losers (Madonna, Axel Rose, Democrats, homos, illegals, communists) that have them the majority of the day albeit at school or electronic media.
As hard as it is sometimes we need to be able to say “well it was his/her choice and I am sad for it but it does not reflect me”.
what sort of name is Von Tirpitz.
No, Flake doesn’t need to be blackmailed. He’s perfectly fine with being a RINO all by hizzelf.
I thought libs told us kids of pols were off limits.
And we couldn’t count on those seventy either if their votes were truly needed for the socialist agenda.
Doesn’t Flake have some connection with another “flake” who has gone to the beyond, Senator Goldwater.
Even if it was totally acceptable for a white person to say “nigger”, the username of “niggerkiller” would still be completely inappropriate.
#1 why would you want to?
#2 you have the right to say whatever you want. doesn’t mean you should
#3 why were Caucasians allowed to lynch blacks in the jim crow south, but blacks couldn’t lynch whites?
I don’t know.
But I do remember 1992. Goldwater endorsed both the Democrat and the Republican for a Congressional seat. The Rat won, and Goldwater was pleased.
Can someone freep mail me, as I’m assuming this shouldn’t be posted on an open forum, and tell me what this one is suppose to be because my stupid is showing and I can’t figure it out.
Over glorified rats IMO
British cigarette, I think.
Most politicians have relatives who do stupid things. Look at Jeb Bush. His wife tried to smuggle thousands of dollars of designer clothes into the country. Look at Bristol Palin. (Oops, better now do that. Lots of freepers will get upset.)
British food, actually. No, I’m not joking. You can find them in the frozen food section. It’s actually kind of tasty.
Oh, Duh!! I'm sure you're correct. Thanks you. I couldn't get my brain to engage this morning. :-)
And if you look at 4chan and anonymous and other such groups, that is a very commonly used term!
This news will certainly harm the prospects for the Gang of Ocho’s illegal alien bill.
So that’s a good thing.
Come on!!! No person in politics has a kid so stupid as to do something like this. My kids understand the political climate and what can be said and not said. You don’t think a congressperson’s son knows this? This was obviously a set up.
According to the liberals, it is only possible to be racist if you belong to a superior race.
I would assume Flake is horrified. I certainly would be if I found my child thought and behaved in such a nasty manner. If he doesn’t support the immigration bill, he wii be painted a racist like his vile son. The Senator has been compromised by his own son. I’m guessing purposefully.
#1 why would you want to? #2 you have the right to say whatever you want. doesnt mean you should #3 why were Caucasians allowed to lynch blacks in the jim crow south, but blacks couldnt lynch whites?
1 Why? Irrelevant.
3.Neither were legally allowed.
Either we are Free and equal, or NOT!
you can’t say chiggers either,it’s chiggroes.
so who’s stopping you from exercising you right to utter an epithet?
haha... so true... that is why i would be so disappointed in the stupidity of this kid were he my son... i mean, have you ever seen “Malibu’s Most Wanted” with Jamie Kennedy and Ryan O’Neal?
