When Don Grundmann took the podium to boos and jeers at a Modesto City Council meeting Wednesday, he appeared angry that some people had called his efforts to organize a "straight pride" event in the California city racist.
He singled out Council member Kristi Ah You, accusing her of "pulling the race card" and allegedly inflaming tensions by "attacking us as racists."
Then he appeared to make a slip of the tongue.
"We haven't done anything," he said. "We're a totally peaceful, racist group."
The crowd erupted in laughter.
As Grundmann tried to regain control of the room, he said his group was "here to defend all races" and claimed that Planned Parenthood was the "greatest mass murderer of blacks in this nation's history."
Shortly after, he was told his time was up and the crowd booed as he left the podium.
