Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) Apologizes For Son’s Offensive Slurs On Twitter
Report: Flake Apologizes For Son’s Offensive Slurs On Twitter
PERRY STEIN 4:03 PM EDT, WEDNESDAY JUNE 12, 2013
Sen. Jeff Flake’s (R-AZ) high school aged son, Tanner, repeatedly published racial, homophobic and anti-Semitic slurs on his personal Twitter account, Buzzfeed reported on Wednesday.
On his Twitter account earlier this year, which has since been locked, Tanner threatened the "faggot" who stole his bike, writing I "will find you, and...will beat the crap out of you." He also called someone a "Jew" for stealing people's ideas and went by the name “n1ggerkiller” in an online game, which he posted screenshots of on his Twitter account.
In a statement to Buzzfeed, Sen. Flake said he was "disappointed" in his son's words and apologized for the "insensitivity."
"This language is unacceptable, anywhere," Flake continued. "Needless to say, I’ve already spoken with him about this, he has apologized, and I apologize as well."
Now that we've determined his hotness, let's spread his sexy pic throughout the gay corners of the internet. I want to have someone ask his father, "how do you feel about your son being a gay icon?"
Tanner's little brother at r11 (the one on the right) has a career ahead of him as a celebrity double for Kiki Dunst.
[quote]Many DLers will probably think he's hot (as all that's needed for them is youth and white skin
What else is hot? Nothing really, no matter how much you try to make it happen.
[quote]"This language is unacceptable, anywhere," Flake continued.
The senator then chuckled and added, "Wink, wink!"
A year older, but still looks like a little douchebag, R15.
I'm sure this will only get dad more votes - it is AZ after all.
Isn't that the Log Cabinettes motto, R18?
It's every honest person's motto r21. Only resentful uptight DL prisses pretend otherwise.
No, R22, only a disturbed individual who thinks "honest" people come in one color would have that as their motto.
Clearly you haven't been to a lot of places in the world if you think only young, white people are attractive. You're quite sheltered.
r23, you forgot to sign your post, "sponsored by the American Political Correctness Action Center."
Looks like Tanner has joined us in this thread.
R24 is under the delusion that every young white person looks like they stepped out of an A&F ad and if you point out that it isn't true, you're accused of being politically-correct when it's really about pointing out the idiocy of someone obsessed with one shade of epidermis.
R24 In case no one told you, the second someone uses the phrase "Political Correctness" (or a variation on it) they instantly tell the whole world they really have nothing to back up what they are claiming and they are only grasping for straws.
that little PIG!
You know damn well that little Mormon Nazi learned his hate speech at home. Senator Flake strikes me as a true sociopath.
These diversions are ALWAYS started by a PC twat. In this case, r12.
[quote]You know damn well that little Mormon Nazi
I suppose the deranged don't realize they're deranged.
You have to be carefully taught
So have the 2 brothers messed around? I know some of you are psychic and can tell just by looking at the pic. If so, give us some detailed stories.
R12 didn't start this, R30. He only pointed what was true - and as you can see from some of the follow-up posts (including yours), he was right.
R14 why did I immediately think that photo would have been funny if he had blown Barbie's head off with that gun?
Oh yes r12 DID start it. The important point of r12's post wasn't whether it was true, but the fact that r12 was expressing RESENTMENT of that truth.
R30, How is R12 a "PC twat"? I thought political correctness involved telling lies in order to spare feelings. Well, what r12 said is demonstrably true, even in this very thread.
And that other loon who thinks that "political correctness" is the only thing animating an attraction to non-whites is far too stupid to live.
r37, the answer to your question is fairly evident. r12 was being pissy about it being true. Unless you're a PC type, why wouldn't you just accept natural hotness as what it is?
As republicans go, his father is pretty moderate. He voted to repeal DADT and in 2007 he voted in favor of ENDA. Maybe this is the way his son rebels?
R36? He was pointing out the truth about the average *DL* poster. Perhaps you should go and get some fresh air so you comprehend Datalounge isn't the world. Ya know, where the actual "truth" resides.
Most of you wouldn't mind the F word being uttered a few times if Tanner was fucking you in the ass. You know it's true.
But, R38, is "natural hotness" limited to any one group? I'm sure you'll say it's "politically correct" to say "no."
R41 speak for yourself.
[quote]But, [R38], is "natural hotness" limited to any one group?
It's certainly far more prevalent in Tanner's demographic.
Tonight r23 is going to masturbate to the shirtless pic and have a great orgasm. Then he'll immediately sign on to DL and rant about how horribly "racist" people are.
[quote] is "natural hotness" limited to any one group? I'm sure you'll say it's "politically correct" to say "no."
That makes absolutely no sense. Why would one need the excuse of being politically correct to say no when the truth will suffice?
Why are you all letting this thread get hijacked? It's intentional, you realize.

I think r50 still had cum on the keyboard while typing his post.
The height of idiocy is thinking your opinion of attractiveness is the "truth," and then having the nerve to call everyone "pc" for calling you out as an idiot.
[quote]to call everyone "pc" for calling you out as an idiot.
So that's different from calling everyone an "idiot" for calling you out as a PC twat?
"You suck!!" "No, you suck!!"
Yeah. The kid is clearly KKK material. Nazis are foreign.
It is bad when Republicans, rednecks, etc. are attractive. It confuses the issue too much. We should maintain our focus, be vigilant and remember......... .... oh, where was I going with that?
The difference is that I'm right in my assessment, R54.
Someone who runs to use "pc" like it's a security blanket because they really have no valid point is in fact an idiot.
You have some idiot proclaiming that only young white people are attractive or "naturally hot" and someone else points out how dumb that is, and is then called "pc." Give me a break.
An idiot calls people "pc" because they're just not bright.
This thread is hilarious.
I hate to say this but I think the dad (Sen. Flake) is the hottest in the pic.
r59, you don't hate to say it at all. You just hate the fact that you know you're lying.
r57, for all that blather, all you really said is "when I use baseless insults it's OK because I believe I'm right, but when others insult me, they're wrong because... well, I'm right."
Looking at r53/r57...
[quote]The height of idiocy is thinking your opinion of attractiveness is the "truth,"
[quote]The difference is that I'm right in my assessment
I do believe r53 called himself an idiot in r57.
R60, in R59's defense, he prefers guys who can actually get into a PG-13 movie without an adult.
As can everyone in the pic r63.
Why would I lie? I don't find adolescents attractive. I don't find twinks attractive either. I'm not one of the pedo-trolls who think anyone who finds someone under that age of 18 attractive is a child molester.
It's unfortunate that Flake narrowly beat Carmona in the Senate race last year.
Now the voters of Arizona are going to have to learn the hard way.
So you like wide older guys with boobs r65? Well, to each his own.
I guess I do. I prefer a man with pecs that some chicken-chested twink or scrawny older guy who thinks he looks cool in his A&F t-shirt.

Girls, Girls! Fer crissakes, you're BOTH pretty!

Article with video.
Dad is hot, older son is hot, and younger son is going to be hot.
R62, that was a brilliant retort, esp. when we're talking specifically about physical attractiveness, but you knew that.
You want to say that only young white people are attractive, go right ahead because I couldn't give a shit. However, when you throw in that it's the truth, every honest person knows it, and then run to "pc" when you're called out for it, prepare to be called an idiot. And quelle surpise, you ignored those posts (probably because you agree or wrote them yourself), so your assessment of me means nothing.
R50 nailed it!
The idea that only white people are attractive is racist in itself, but to claim it's "the truth", like it's been somehow proven and that everyone accepts it as fact, is nothing short of mental illness.
I'm sure Flake's son didn't just come up with that racist shit on his own. He learned from his parents. Anyhow, he needs a hard kick to the balls and up his ass.
The stuff he wrote is not just racist and homophobic, its down right violent. If I was this kids father, I dont know if I would want to sleep under the same roof as him.
The problem with Tanner Flake is probably arrogance. He's got a heightened sense of confidence that comes from being who he is and looking like he does. Combine that with the conservative politics of his father and he probably feels superior to most people and it shows in his language.
[quote]I guess I do. I prefer a man with pecs that some chicken-chested twink...
Typical DL oldie delusion. Describing normal hot males with ridiculous put downs and pretending that exaggerated cartoonish bodies are some kind of norm.
You must be a scrawny, emaciated loser, R77.
r72, who said that "it's the truth that only white people can be attractive"? Are you an extrapolator?
r78, your seething rage over not being young and hot is apparent to all.
Gotta love DL, the only place where a blatant expression of violent, homophobic, and anti-Semitic rhetoric is answered by a discussion if he's "hot." The question that has not been asked yet is, " Is he uncut?" C'mon uncut trolls, you're slipping.
Can you imagine the rolls of fat on r78?
Oh fuck no, r81! Please don't suggest that he has foreskin. Being a hateful Republican is bad enough.
I wonder if they went nude the whole time on that island in r70's link. There was no one else around but the three males - what a great opportunity for bonding as nature intended. Surely they didn't bother with the board shorts when the cameras were put away.
R84, for some reason I'm picturing Jack, David, and Shaun Cassidy flopping around. I wonder if the Flakes sing.
^^ Flaky Breaky Heart?
Jeff Flake needs to apologize for raising a bigot, but his homophobic/racist ass doesn't know the first thing about integrity.
[quote]The question that has not been asked yet is, " Is he uncut?"
The majority of white boys, particularly of the redneck variety, are circumcised.
I must say he's inspired me. I'm going to call myself wiggerkiller on Twitter from now on. Hey I hate flakes and if the name fits wear it.....
Thomas Roberts reported on MSNBC this weekend that Flake's son has now locked his Twitter account.
Agreed, R73, but the boy doesn't need a hard kick. His father does. And to lose his cushy senate seat.
Please post any and all full frontal naked pictures of both Tanner and his father, preferably of them having sex with each other.
Unfortunately we won't get that chance for another 5 years now, R91.
Off topic.... Can someone start a thread for me? Funeral Drama.... I have the most over the top family funeral drama that occurred yesterday. Thanks!
[quote]Tanner Flake pretends to commit suicide in 2011 on YouTube:
Shameful. Flake's apology is worse than the useless asshole spermcrap that uttered such hate.
That video is shocking.
This kikd is mentally unstable- he needs help right away before he really does commit suicide because of the backlash he is getting from his tweet, which he won't be able to handle. Daddy- you better hide those guns you have in the house.
Tanner is certainly into guns big time. You can see him posing with them in the photos above.
