C-Span, the Cable Satellite Public Affairs Network that is known for airing unfiltered government and politics information, recently had a caller call in to their “Washington Journal” program referred to President Barack Obama as “that N-word” before getting booted off the air.

The man, who said that his name was Anthony from San Diego, Calif., began his comment on Thursday by discussing the direction the new GOP majority in Congress should take:

“I would just like to say, that the Republicans — and I’m a Republican — please do not overreach,” the caller began. “I know they’re going to overreach but I’m telling you, if you advocate for the repeal of Obamacare and you get too extreme, then Hillary Clinton will be elected President in 2016.”

The caller then said:

“This is about race,” he added. “The Republicans hate that N*gger Obama.”

The program’s host Steve Scully (pictured) cut Anthony off and reprimanded him as well:

“Okay, I’m gonna stop you there.  We’re not gonna use that kind of language.”

Scully, who hosts a show that has gained a rep for favoring Republican guests over Democrats and for under-representing people of color and women, went on to apologize for the racist remark spewed by the caller:

“You can certainly make your point, but you cross the line when you use language like that.  And so to our viewers and listeners, I want to apologize.”
