(FOX NEWS) Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer had some curious remarks last month about his own constituents – describing some of them as rednecks with a penchant for making racist comments.

Schweitzer told the Ohio Democratic Convention, “All over Montana, you can walk into a bar, a café or even a school or a courthouse and just listen for a while as people talk to each other, and you will hear somebody, before very long, say something outrageously racist about the people who have lived in Montana for 10,000 years.”

“I decided I can’t turn the heart of a 45-year-old redneck. But if we start early enough. If we start with a tender child — so we passed Indian Education for All.”
