Dan Ramos needs to go

I’m a little late to the table in commenting on the hateful remarks of Bexar County Democratic Party Chair Dan Ramos, and I apologize for that. Let me just say that there’s no place in civilized society, let alone the Democratic Party, for that kind of ignorant, homophobic crap. Ramos should be ashamed of himself, and every day that he remains in a position of authority is a travesty. He needs to go, and if he won’t do so voluntarily then we need to find some mechanism for removing him. I don’t even know what else to say – this is all so self-evident that it seems ridiculous to have to say anything. But it is incumbent on all of us to speak out against this kind of behavior, so let me repeat myself: Dan Ramos needs to step down as BCDP Chair, and if he won’t then he needs to be pushed out. Bob Moser has more.

    Thanks for blogging this. I hadn’t heard it, and you’ve kept me up until almost 1:30 in the morning firing off angry calls for his resignation (and pointing a national blogger or two towards the Current article).

    I’ve chosen to essentially boycott the BCDP until Mr. Ramos resigns – no money, no time, nothing. I’ll still vote, but that’s about it. If our choice is Republicans or this guy, it doesn’t seem like much of a choice.

    When I heard this last, I was livid and appalled. I am a Texan Democrat/Liberal and we are working for unity and understanding. Mr. Ramos’ racist and fascist remarks are not acceptable and this man needs to apologize before he resigns. I do not live in Bexar County, but this man’s rantings have caused a ripple effect all through the state. Let him go to the red side of the aisle as his views are likened to them. Shame on him.
