WOW! This is just another great example of the oh so tolerant liberal showing Americans how they really feel about others behind closed doors…
MI Executive, Mark Hackel, released a secret audio recording to local Detroit TV stations. The voice of Mayor Jim Fouts can be heard saying mentally disabled people are “retards” and “not even human beings.” Hackel said that the tapes were given to him by someone who is or was a member of Fouts’ staff.
It’s been revealed that reporter Mara McDonald spoke with the person who recorded the Mayor, this person just happened to be an employee who recorded Fouts in his office.
The discussion was in reference to Fouts’ plans to attend an event regarding the Special Olympics, according to the TV station.
For this community, the Olympic sports training, and competition, for children and adults with intellectual disabilities are a “very big deal for the community.”
In one of the recordings, awfull things about the way mentally disabled people use bathrooms were said.
“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 has a controversial history with the Democratic Party. He ran for state representative in the 1970s as a Republican, but in Warren, the city offices are nonpartisan. Fouts, however, has attended many Democratic events over the years, but endorsed U.S. Sen. John McCain, an Arizona Republican, for president in 2008 before switching his allegiance to then-Sen. Barack Obama.
In this year’s election cycle, he was an enthusiastic supporter of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, but later complained about how the party treated him at a Democratic debate in Flint in February and that he didn’t get to introduce Clinton when she gave a speech in Warren in August.
Bouts avoided reporters’ calls on Friday, and in a Thursday night Facebook post denied it was him. He said that Hackel had experts available to “electronically engineer it.” So who knows what to believe, although it is not too far-fetched to believe a “tolerant” Democrat would say this.
