Keith Bardwell is a justice of peace for Tangipahoa Parish’s 8th Ward and has served in the position for 34 years. He is scheduled to hold the office until 2014.

 He vows not to ever marry inter-racial couples, and is committed to stay in office.

“Everybody hates me,” he tells reporters. “Really. I don’t know why. I treat people, I figure, equal. I have one problem with mixed marriages and that is the offspring.” ”The fact that they are born alive, bothers me immensly.”

“There is a problem with both groups accepting a child from such a marriage,” Bardwell said. “I think those children suffer, and I won’t help put them through it.”

After all, look at how President  Obama turned out.

 Hammond, La. residents Beth Humphrey, a White woman, and her fiancé Terence McKay, a Black man, were denied a marriage license by local justice of the peace Keith Bardwell in early October. Bardwell said his decision was based on concern for the welfare of children the couple may have.

 After all, he would like to kill them himself.

Asked if he is “racist,” Bardwell replies:  “Absolutely not.”My definition of a racist is to hate black people, or treat black people different that anybody else,” he says.

My definition of a racist is Keith Bardwell, Glen Beck, and Rush Limbaugh. These people want to ”act” in racist ways, but not be labeled as a racist.

You can not have it both ways.

How many Attorneys-General of LA knew about Bardwell’s racist views and did nothing for decades?

When it was discovered that the  justice of the peace in Louisiana refused to issue a marriage license to an interracial couple,it prompted some top officials, including Gov. Bobby Jindal, to call for his dismissal, pitting Governor Jindal directly against the wishes of his political party, the Republicans, led by Michael Steele, but actually controlled by Rush Limbaugh and his assistant, Glen Beck.

Their goal is to create a race that is pure, and free from the mongrelization  of the white race. It is just the first step into their Republican vision for America, which justice Bardwell wholeheartedly supports.

“I’m not a racist. I just don’t believe in mixing the races that way,” Bardwell told AP. “I have piles and piles of black friends. They come to my home, I marry them, they use my bathroom. I treat them just like everyone else.”

He sounds like a good white man to me, doesn’t he. At least we can use his toilet, just like his white friends.

 Tangipahoa Parish President Gordon Burgess said in a statement that Bardwell’s views were not consistent with his or those of the local government. But as an elected official, Bardwell was not under the supervision of the parish government. “However, I am certainly very disappointed that anyone representing the people of Tangipahoa Parish, particularly an elected official, would take such a divisive stance”.

Although the couple is distraught by Bardwell’s decision, they said they realize that his views are not shared by most of the community. What they must realize is that Keith Bardwell is an elected official, and it would be a miracle if his views were not known, or supported by the majority of the citizens in Hammond, Louisiana.

He obviously reflects the will of the people who elected him into office, consistently for the past 34 years.

Wake up my people, we are behind enemy lines. We all need to see each other only as human beings.

  1. For so many years Limbaugh has spent his time on the radio mis-labeling or mis-characterizing others . Finally he had his judgment day.

    Another guy who swears he is not that way. Funny.

  2. Tangipahoa Parish has another claim to fame: It was the filming location for In the Heat of the Night, the TV show about race and the law.
