A top British politician’s girlfriend is catching heat after the racist and derogatory comments she made regarding Meghan Markle’s pending position in the Royal Family.
Jo Marney, the partner of UKIP chief Henry Bolton, launched a disgusting attack on the beautiful and accomplished Markle, who is biracial, calling her a “black American” fiance who will “taint” the Royal Family with “her seed” and pave the way for a “black king” in messages to a friend.
The messages, which were obtained by The Daily Mail, also revealed Marney’s general opinions about African Americans, which she calls “ugly” and even mentions that she’d never have sex with “a negro.”
And that’s not all folks…
Marney also described Markle as “a scrubber” and a “gender equality t***” who is “obsessed with race” and a “dumb little commoner.”
Why is she so mad?
She believes ethnic minorities in general are “pushing their way to the top slowly slowly. Next will be a Muslim PM. And a black king.”
What did the friend say?
Well, what anyone decent would probably reply, accusing her of being racist.
Did that stop Marney?
Nah, her response to being racist reportedly was, “Lol so what… Not wanting other races and cultures to invade your own culture doesn’t mean I hate their race. Just means I don’t want their cultures invading mine.”
Yep, Jo Marney was reportedly suspended from her Ukip party membership after party heads were informed of her offensive comments. Henry Bolton actually could be removed over the scandal. The party’s National Executive Committee will vote on the matter Thursday.
Marney, predictably, apologized. Saying that her comments were “deliberately exaggerated.
“I apologize unreservedly for the shocking language I used,” she said. “The opinions I expressed were deliberately exaggerated in order to make a point and have, to an extent, been taken out of context. Yet I fully recognize the offense they have caused.
“No offence was intended and, again, I apologize unreservedly for any such offence or hurt that my messages have caused to members of the public, members of Ukip my friends, family and loved ones,” she continued.
“I have disappointed them all and let myself down. I cannot sufficiently express my regret and sadness at having done so,” Marney concluded.
Yeah, your apology kinda went wayside when you were confronted with your racism and said “so what.”
