PA mayor posts lynching, monkey memes about Obama
The never learn. Ignorance can’ be cured here.
The mayor of a small central Pennsylvania town remains unapologetic after coming under fire for posting racist memes on his Facebook page, one of which calls for the lynching of President Barack Obama.
West York Mayor Charles Wasko told the Associated Press on Thursday that he was the victim of a “witch hunt” after several local council members asked for his resignation over the offensive posts.
One features a still of Clint Eastwood holding a noose, from the film “The Good, The Bad and The Ugly,” with a caption reading, “Barry, this rope is for you. You wanna bring that empty chair over here!”
Another shows a wheelbarrow full of orangutans with the caption, “Aww…moving day at the Whitehouse has finally arrived. “Kenya or bust” is inscribed on the side of the wheelbarrow. A third, of a grinning chimpanzee, is labeled “Moochelles baby photo,” in an apparent reference to the first lady.
