A candidate for Democratic National Committee chair said at a forum Monday that her job, if elected, will be to "shut other white people down" when they try to claim they are not racist.

Sally Boynton Brown currently serves as executive director of the Idaho Democratic Party. At Monday's Democracy in Color forum in Washington, D.C., Brown told the crowd, "I'm a white woman. I don’t get it!" according to video of the event from CSPAN3.

"My job is to listen and be a voice, and my job is to shut other white people down when they want to interrupt," Boynton Brown said. "My job is to shut other white people down when they want to say, 'Oh, no, I'm not prejudiced.'"

Boynton Brown said that, as a Democrat, she is accepting of others, but her job is to make sure that other white people "make sure that they get that they have privilege."

Idaho is "so white," Boynton Brown said, so she is reaching out "to anybody of color that I can find to be honest with me."

Conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh played audio of the remarks on his show Tuesday, saying her words echo the mindset of the Democratic Party, and "It's not just rhetoric when she says that she's gonna shut white people down."

"I've been trying to tell people that Democrat Party is now dominated by people who despise the American founding, who hate it and consider it to be the focus of evil in the world today," he said. "And their leadership has facilitated this by not shutting this kind of insanity down."

Others seeking the to head the DNC are Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison, considered the favorite, former Labor Secretary Tom Perez, Democratic strategist Jehmu Greene, South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg, New Hampshire Party Chairman Ray Buckley and South Carolina Democratic Party Chairman Jaime Harrison, Fox News reports.
