Hurling F-bombs and the “C” word, this alleged misogynistic racist reveals his true character.
Warren, Michigan Mayor Jim Fout, a liberal Democrat, allegedly made disparaging comments about African-Americans and older women. Tapes capturing these offensive remarks surfaced on the eve of the mayor’s Martin Luther King, Jr. celebration.
Racist Liberal Hypocrites
The current allegations against Fout stem from remarks made about minorities, Motor City Muckracker reported. The source and dates of these recordings are unknown.
In one recording, Fout purportedly compared black people to chimpanzees.
“Blacks do look like chimpanzees. I was watching this black woman with her daughter and they looked like two chimps. They’re mouths were elongated.”
The mayor, who looks every bit his 70+ years, also allegedly explained his preference for younger women:
“Think I want to date a f*cking 60-year-old hag? F*ck that sh*t. I’m not interested in any old ugly hag. I think after a certain age they are dried up, washed up, burned out. They are pu$$ies when they are young, and when they get older, they’re just mean, hateful dried-up c*nts.”
It’s easy to see why he’s a Democrat. And you can bet he gets the “ladies.”
Why are critics so sure Fout made these recorded remarks? Because it’s happened before.
Last month, the mayor said disabled people “aren’t even human beings.” That statement prompted residents of Warren to demand his resignation. Then, his termination from a weekly radio show on 910AM Radio Superstation soon followed, according to Motor City Muckracker.
If the Shoe Fits
A few of people who have spent time with the mayor, and know him well enough to comment, have corroborated Fout’s tendency to use inflammatory language. Reporter Steve Neavling wrote:
“As someone who has interviewed Fouts numerous times in the past, some of these comments aren’t surprising. When I worked for the Detroit Free Press, Fouts talked to me often about his preference for younger women.”
An ex-aide to the mayor was not surprised about these allegations against his former employer. As The Daily Mail reported, Joe DiSano who worked for Fout from 2003-2013, says his former boss ‘casually’ made racist remarks in front of him on numerous occasions.
‘At one of the last meetings I ever had with him, he actually stood at the front of the conference room table and danced around like he was monkey,’ DiSano told The Detroit Free Press. ‘And that was in reference to voters in Detroit.’
DiSano, who also alleges the mayor insulted Arabs and Albanians, said he resigned because he could no longer stomach Fout’s increasingly vile behavior.
“It’s been like watching a slow descent into madness. He has always been eccentric, but the past couple years have been increasingly hateful toward other people.”
Time to Face the Music
Raw Story reported that the mayor insists that Macomb County Executive Mark Hackel, a long-time critic of Fout, faked the recordings.
“This recording was not me! (he has the expertise available to him to electronically engineer it), Fout wrote in a December Facebook post. “This is a PHONY tape.”
How’s that for dragging out the old “Weiner Defense?” Those aren’t MY SEXTS!
Therefore, Fout denied on Facebook that it was him on the tapes. Moreover, he refused to talk to reporters.
There will be a reckoning, according to the Reverend W. J. Rideout, III of All God’s People Church in Detroit. The black pastor pursued the mayor as he left his own MLK event, calling him a racist and demanding his resignation. Whether it’s through a recall election, or a Justice Department inquiry, it seems likely the mayor will soon answer for his alleged misdeeds.
