An Idaho GOP candidate definitely stirred the pot with his comments during his most recent debate. Republican candidate Harley Brown is apparently known for his publicly outspoken demeanor and sometimes offensive statements, but this one in particular is causing quite an uproar.

By most accounts, the Idaho race to watch is the one between Gov. Butch Otter and state Sen. Russ Fulcher for the Republican nomination.
But what happens when you let perennial candidates Harley Brown — a Harley-driving biker — and Walt Bayes — with a white, Santa-like beard — take part in a televised debate with Otter and Fulcher?
You get a discussion of the economy, the Affordable Care Act and federal lands alongside a heavy dose of conspiracy theories, biblical interpretations and one man’s fight against political correctness.
Brown’s campaign website contains a warning label and Harleyisms, and he explained very colorfully why his platform seeks freedom from political correctness.
“You might find it offensive, but I hit everybody — Jews, Irish people, black jokes and religious jokes,” Brown said at the debate. “I don’t like political correctness. It sucks. It’s bondage. I’m going for the vote the real people.”
Do you find Harley’s logic and reasoning racist?
