Hey, Reince Priebus, know what’s really ‘horrific’? Ask Jamiel Shaw’s family

Earlier today, Business Insider reported that RNC chairman Reince Priebus called Mitt Romney’s self-deportation remarks “racist” and “horrific.”

BI was forced to issue a correction after it became clear that Priebus didn’t use the word “racist”; He said Romney’s talk of self-deportation “hurts us.”

Priebus has not distanced himself from his claim that “self-deportation” is a “horrific” term.

Here’s what’s really horrific: 17-year-old California high school student Jamiel Shaw was gunned down by an illegal immigrant. The results of open borders and sanctuary cities are horrific. There are crimes committed by gang members who are in this country illegally that are horrific.

Words and ideas that make the RNC chair uncomfortable? Not horrific.

Not from us, he doesn’t.

It’s also worth noting that the RNC press office confirmed the original Priebus quote when William Jacobson of Legal Insurrection reached out for comment.

So someone at the RNC thought “racist” was a spiffy term to describe “self-deportation.” And “horrific” is still just dandy.

Thanks again for the leadership, GOP.
