A Louisiana School Board candidate has written a series of inflammatory remarks on Facebook but he insists that he’s not a racist, which is exactly what a racist would say. To add to the confusion, he has previously identified himself as a racist.

[su_center_ad]KATC-TV reports, ‘“Coach Don” Gagnard, who’s running for District 1 Lafayette Parish School Board, used widely understood racial and homophobic slurs on the social media site to express his frustration with “faggots, bums, illegal aliens, Veterans mistreatment and most of all: OUR HITLER PRESIDENT.”’

He seems genuinely nice and I’ll bet he’s fun at parties.

Gagnard wrote on June 27th that “others have to pay for the idiots because they are too lazy to do something for themselves except pass the blame on white people …”


He also calls for President Obama to “go away and bring your urangutan with you.” [sic]

Gagnard was asked by KATC if he hates faggots, bums and illegal aliens, and to our complete surprise he said yes.

He actually received 36.5 percent of the vote in the Nov. 4th election, so now there’s a runoff between Gagnard and Mary Morrison, who received 44.5 percent of the vote.

This part should really scare you. He describes his background as having 24 years experience as an educator and coach.

KATC asked him about his post in which he self-identifies as a racist, and he said that “coaches are not racists.”

“I’ve bailed black people out of jail and bought them trucks,” he said. “If you call me a racist, that’s going to flip back on you. But the faggot thing, yea, you can stick with that.”


According to Raw Story, Gagnard changed his party affiliation shortly before the Nov. 4 election, switching from Republican to independent.

“I don’t want to be a Democrat or a Republican, I want to be me,” Gagnard said. “If I say I am Republican, people will profile me and say, ‘Oh, he represents this.’ If I say I’m a Democrat, they’ll say, ‘Oh, he represents that.’”

The runoff election is Dec. 6th.

    And he looks as crazy as he sounds.

    Unfortunately idiots like him sometimes do get elected. It requires years to undue the damage.

    Mr Gagnard should be asked, in al seriousness, if Obama is a Hitler, why has Mr Gagnard not been liquidated?

    Daily reminder to right wing apologists.

    No, both sides do NOT do it.

    Liberals do not vote to put profane, ignorant bigots in elective office.

    It seems to me that if you’re running to be on the school board, you should act like you attended school for a few years, at least.

    Sounds a lot like the coaches I had growing up in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
