The high school-age son of Sen. Jeff Flake (Rep. AZ), Tanner Flake, used his Twitter account to threaten the “faggot” who stole his bike, warning that he “will find you, and … will beat the crap out of you,” joked about an acquaintance stealing one-liners because he’s Jewish, and used the handle “n1ggerkiller” in posted screenshots of scores from games on “Fun Run,” a social gaming app, BuzzFeed.com reported.

A source told BuzzFeed that Flake’s YouTube comments are also littered with offensive language. A preliminary review of the hundreds of comments shows he repeatedly called other users “nigger” and “faggot,” called Mexicans the “scum of the Earth,” and on several occasions bragged that his father is a member of Congress.

Sen. Flake apologized Wednesday for his son’s use of racial epithets, homophobic slurs and antisemitic remarks in social media.

“I’m very disappointed in my teenage son’s words, and I sincerely apologize for the insensitivity,” the first-term senator, who was elected last year, said in a statement. “This language is unacceptable, anywhere. Needless to say, I’ve already spoken with him about this, he has apologized, and I apologize as well.”

    There is something seriously wrong with todays youth. I doubt speaking to a kid like this would change his heart.

  2. Jonathon Douglas Widener says:

    This is not the first time his son did this. If you read other news sites, it has been going on for a while. His screenname on a gaming site is "n1ggerkiller" and he calls people who take his points for the game "Jews". This kid did not learn this on his own. He learned it at home, where all children learn to hate. Please update more on this story.

  3. Alan Kardon says:

    Maybe if you do unto him what he promises to do to others will shut him up. Why is the father apologizing?

  4. Alan Kardon says:

    Not sure where he learned it but he certainly needs to be straightened out.

  5. Wragg: They hear and learn at home.
    Kardon: He is apologizing because it is cheap and he wants to be elected.

  6. Edward Lobel says:

    The father is apoligizing because the son got it from the father. There are many Jews in Arizona and Fiske needs them to be re-elected!

  7. This is kind of… Well very wrong to publicly humiliate a kid for a few wrong choices.You shouldn't be surprised on the type of language a highschooler uses on the internet because you were all there once and said some things just like this. If your trying to find a way to bash the senator because hes not your choice than leave the kid out of it. What may be a few clicks on your computer to make you money can ruin a kids life.

  8. Beau Howard says:

    I don't see why his father would need to apologize. it's not like he said anything that WASN'T true.

  9. Racist is a hate word. In the 60's, anti-whites forced ALL and ONLY white countries to bring in millions of non-whites. Then anti-whites forced ALL and ONLY white people to “integrate” or face penalties for being “naziswhowantokill6millionjews.” Now anti-whites are praising and counting down the days till ALL and ONLY white children are minorities and extinct EVERYWHERE. That makes it genocide. “Anti-racist” is a codeword for anti-white.

    Hmmm can his son run for senator? We could use a lot more people like him in power.

  15. The senator doesn't want to upset his masters.

  16. @Stuart Wragg No but going to the Mormon Church five times a week probably has a lot to do with this little b@astard's attitude.
