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.
