In Mason, Texas, handgun instructor Crockett Keller has become an instant celebrity after his ad offering lessons and documentation for concealed weapons . . . unless you voted for Obama or are a Muslim or non-Christian Arab.
In an ad that starts out sounding like it was written by Sheriff Wright after his recent press conference, Keller tells listeners that a gun will make them a victor not a victim before going into his diatribe against liberals, Muslims, and Arabs.
“If you are a socialist liberal and/or voted for the current campaigner-in-chief, please do not take this class. You’ve already proven that you cannot make a knowledgeable and prudent decision as required under the law. Also, if you are a non-Christian Arab or Muslim, I will not teach you this class. Once again, with no shame, I am Crockett Keller.”
No shame and possibly no license. By proclaiming his desire to discriminate against customers, Keller may lose his license.
The Texas Department of Public Safety noted that “conduct by an instructor that denied service to individuals on the basis of race, ethnicity or religion would place that instructor’s certification by the Department at risk of suspension or revocation.”
Keller, however, insists that the bar on liberals, Muslims, and Arabs was just an afterthought after “I got to thinking, ‘Hmm, I’m arming the enemy.’”
Funny, I thought bigots were the enemy in a free nation.
