The Republicans in Alamosa County in Colorado must have misplaced their dog whistle over the weekend:
Out of self-respect–be Republican. Democrats love poor people because they think that poor people will vote Democrat. Republicans hate poor people because they think the dignity of man is above being poor.

Holy crap, they used their outdoor voice!
And then they marched it back:
“Hate has no home here. On behalf of the Alamosa County Republicans, and as the Chair of that organization, please accept this apology for the inappropriate and offensive post made on this site on March 30, 2018. The author acted independently and without the concurrence of any other member of the Alamosa County Republicans. The regrettable post was made with the intention of condemning poverty, not persons affected by poverty, and was not meant to insult anyone. However, that occurred, and the author sincerely regrets the post and has offered his resignation from his position with the Alamosa County Republicans, which has been accepted. Actions have consequences.”
Gosh, but Republicans are still defending Laura Ingraham saying that her words should not have triggered a backlash. The First Amendment is really hard for Wingnuts.
