All this man did was tell the truth.
And they are trying to crucify him for it.
A western New York builder and former Republican nominee for governor was censured on Thursday by fellow members of the Buffalo Board of Education and asked to resign his seat for making racial slurs about President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama.
The school board called a special meeting and approved a resolution demanding the resignation of Carl Paladino, a board member who ran unsuccessfully for New York governor in 2010. The resolution threatens proceedings to remove the outspoken conservative if he does not step down.
Paladino created a firestorm last week when he sent an email to a weekly newspaper saying he hoped “Obama catches mad cow disease after being caught having relations with a Her(e)ford.”
Regarding Michelle Obama, Paladino said: “I’d like her to return to being a male and let loose in the outback of Zimbabwe where she lives comfortably in a cave with Maxie, the gorilla.”
His comments were published in the holiday edition of Artvoice, which had surveyed Buffalo residents about what they would like to happen in 2017 and what they would like to see go away.
Paladino, a wealthy real estate developer and ally of President-elect Donald Trump, issued a statement on Tuesday apologizing for his comments. He also took a swipe at critics, calling them “parasites,” and said Barack Obama was “a traitor to American values.”
That’s where you screwed up.
Apologize, give them the smell of blood, and you’re doomed.
Has Trump taught us nothing?
