L’il Joey Heck proves the fruit don’t fall far from the rotten tree

Monkey see, monkey do. When your dad acts like a fool, there’s a good chance you may act like one too.

Such appears to be the case with Nevada Congressman Joe Heck, whose son has been attracting an undue amount of attention recently for the rather steady stream of racist commentary he has been disseminating via social media. What’s interesting to note is how enthusiastic this kid is about growing up to be a racist just like daddy.

From Buzzfeed:

Nevada Rep. Joe Heck’s teenage son has repeatedly used racist, homophobic, and sexist slurs on twitter to lash out at targets ranging from President Obama to the “Mexican security monitor” in his school.

Heck apologized for his son’s twitter outbursts in a statement to BuzzFeed.

“I am extremely disappointed in my son’s use of the offensive and inappropriate language on twitter: that type of language has never been permitted in our home,” Heck said.

“I apologize to everyone he may have offended. My son also apologizes for his insensitive behavior. My wife and I have addressed this family matter directly with him and he has learned from it.”

A review of tweets by Joey Heck, 16, dating to August of last year shows numerous examples in which Heck used words like “faggot” and “nigga.” For instance, on Sept. 11 Heck tweeted “Fanny pack = fag bag,” and on August 23 he retweeted a tweet that read, “There are gays everywhere. Maybe that’s gods way of thinning out the population because faggots can’t have babies.”

Heck’s twitter feed also included numerous racial slurs. During a Sept. 16 Jets football game, the younger Heck tweeted “[Mark] Sanchez can hop the border faster than he can throw the ball.”

Of course, the primary problem with Big Heck’s apology is that L’il Heck learned all his moves from Dear Old Dad.

During the Oct. 16 presidential debate, Heck took issue with the performance of moderator Martha Raddatz, ABC’s Senior Foreign Affairs Correspondent. “This is why men need to be moderators,” he wrote.

He also wrote that Mitt Romney “raped” Obama and made him his “slave” during a debate.

In an exchange with a friend during the debate on October 3rd, Heck asked rhetorically, “I would like somebody to tell me one good thing Obama did in these past 4 years…. I got nothing.” Later in the conversation he said “yeah like spear chucking and rock skipping. The sports they do in his home country…”

L’il Joe Heck is just 16 and shows considerable promise of becoming a first-class dim-witted racist, maybe even a better one than his Dad. And ain’t that just what every father wants for his son?
