GOP removes official over comments on radio about Espaola residents

I knew and shunned this person in early 2017 when I learned he was a Breitbart huffer, TFG voter, and that his stupidity would never be outweighed by his friendly demeanor. I called him out, then, but little good it did the sick fuck.

A Republican Party of New Mexico official has been stripped of his leadership post for making derogatory remarks about people in Española on a conservative radio show last week.

The party’s executive committee unanimously voted Tuesday night to remove Taylor Locker as vice chairman of the 1st Congressional District “due to his inability to conform to the policies and guidelines of the party,” the GOP wrote Wednesday in a news release.

“Locker came under fire after he made comments about the Hispanic community while on an Albuquerque radio broadcast last week,” the news release states. “The action by RPNM’s Executive Committee made it clear that such remarks do not reflect the values of RPNM.”

During Friday’s radio broadcast on The Rock of Talk, host Eddy Aragon introduced Locker as the “newly minted” vice chairman and asked him if he was from Ohio.

“Guilty as charged, although maybe this reference will help you,” Locker responded. “We kind of think of Cleveland when we’re down in the Columbus, Cincinnati, Dayton area like you think of Española. You gotta keep that fenced off, make sure those people don’t populate with the rest of the state.”

“Wow,” Aragon, CEO of The Rock of Talk radio station, said before changing the topic.

When Aragon introduced Locker, Locker thanked him for the invitation and said, “Glad to be able to use my big mouth for something constructive.”

1. I've made derogatory comments about Espanola also.

Specifically, about their billboard urging women not to have abortions. Is that still there?

3. Just one word too many. He use his big mouth, alright.

It just wasn't for anything constructive. I assume he has a lot of practice.

4. He just found out that New Mexico isn't Ohio.
