Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) said he voted against the anti-hate resolution in the House last week because it did not “condemn discrimination against Caucasian-Americans and Christians.”

“In my view, discrimination against Caucasian-Americans and Christians is just as insidious as discrimination against any other race, ethnicity or religion and the failure to specifically state opposition to discrimination against Caucasian-Americans and Christians, while reflective of Socialist Democrat priorities and values, is, by omission, fatal to the bill,” Brooks wrote in a press release.

“H.Res. 183’s intentional omission of Christians and Caucasians is insulting and suggests America’s House of Representatives cares about virtually everyone except Christians and Caucasians,” he concluded. “That implication is repugnant and I reject it!”

AL.com flagged Brooks’ comments on Monday.

Brooks has long been a crusader for white people, once decrying the Democrats’ “war on whites.”

“If you look at current federal law, there is only one skin color that you can lawfully discriminate against,” he said at the time. “That’s Caucasians — whites.”
