Racist Republican Senator from Virgnia.
Has a long history of displaying the Confederate flag.
On Friday, August 11th, 2006, Allen twice called S.R. Sidarth, a Webb campaign volunteer, a word that sounds like "Macaca" Sidarth is of Indian ancestry, but was born and raised in Fairfax County, Virginia. Sidarth was filming an Allen campaign stop in Breaks, Virginia.
Allen called Sidarth "Macaca, or whatever his name is." He later continued, "Let's give a welcome to Macaca, here. Welcome to America and the real world of Virginia."
The Webb campaign accused Allen of having insulted Sidarth's race. The word 'macaque,' refers to a type of monkey and has occasionally been used as a racial slur against dark-skinned Africans. The word could also be interpreted as "macaca" or "mukakkah," a French and Belgian slur for dark skinned peoples of North African descent. Allen's mother immigrated from French Tunisia and is of French descent. Allen speaks French and obtained excellent grades in French as an undergraduate. Allen's campaign maintains that the word was used in reference to Sidarth's apparent mohawk. However, Sidarth said that his haircut is a mullet, not a mohawk.
Allen has since apologized for his comments, stating he didn't know what word he used meant, and did not intend to insult Sidarth's ethnicity.
Washingtonian Magazine voted him 3rd on the list of Senators most likely to be "no rocket scientist".
George Allen is a racist moron who, during a 2006 campaign stop, directed racial epithets at a person who was actually videotaping him at the time.
George Allen is a racist boob.
George Allen displayed a confederate flag in his living room until very recently.
1. A disgrace to the state of Virginia. Called a man of Indian descent, S.R. Sidarth, a "macaca," an obvious racial slur. He "welcomed" the man to "the real world of Virginia," which is highly ironic, given that Allen was born and raised in California and Sidarth was born and raised in Fairfax, Virginia. He also feigned innocence by saying that he "had no idea what 'macaca' meant." House Majority Leader H. Morgan Griffith decided to bullshit out these words: "Not many people in southwest Virginia would think it is derogatory. I didn't have a clue what it meant, and I doubt Allen did, either." His campaign came up with various ways to bullshit the public and downplay the significance of the incident.
2. See shitstain
George Allen: I had no idea what "macaca" meant.
Me: And yet you called the only non-white person in the crowd a word you obviously "didn't understand."
George Allen is the real macaca.
A known racist Senator of Virginia and former Governor of Virginia. Allen was well known to keep a hangman's noose prominently displayed in his office (an obvious reference to lynchings). He also prominently flew the Confederate battle flag in front of his house. George Allen tries to pretend he is a good ole boy from Virginia, when he actually was raised in Southern California. He routinely panders to the uneducated, racist rednecks from Southern Virginia.
George Allen? Well he's just a good ole Southern boy.. a Southern California boy.
