DCCC Chair Steve Israel: Not All, but Most Republicans Are Racists

On Sunday’s “State of the Union,” CNN’s Candy Crowley asked DCCC Chairman Rep. Steve Israel if he thought his Republican colleagues are racist.

Israel responded, “Not all of them, no. Of course not. But to a significant extent, the Republican base does have elements that are animated by racism.”

Given that the question specifically asked about Israel’s Republican colleagues, when asked for a response by Breitbart News, the NRCC’s Digital Press Secretary Andrew Clark asked for some clarification, “… which Republicans does he think are racist?”

Clark also asked if Israel thinks all conservatives are motivated by racism and suggested that the comment was below even the low standards of the DCCC, “Such comments are below the integrity of the DCCC (evenfor them.)”
