“Obama catches mad cow disease after being caught having relations with a Herford. He dies before his trial and is buried in a cow pasture next to Valerie Jarret, who died weeks prior, after being convicted of sedition and treason, when a Jihady cell mate mistook her for being a nice person and decapitated her,”
“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.”
The above is likely written by an Internet troll living in his mom’s basement (whether he weighs 400 pounds is irrelevant), right? Guess again. It was written—the misspellings are his—by the co-chairman of Donald Trump’s New York presidential campaign.
Carl Paladino is not just a millionaire Trump supporter. He is also a member of the Buffalo school board, charged with overseeing the education of some 34,000 students in that proud city.
Paladino wrote the first italicized paragraph about what he’d like to see in 2017. It’s about the president and top adviser Valerie Jarrett. It was in response to an alternative newspaper’s survey.
The second paragraph is about Michelle Obama as an answer to the same survey.
Paladino confirmed to the Buffalo News that he wrote the comments and unbelievably claimed they “had nothing to do with race.” This guy is either monumentally stupid or thinks we are.
The people of Buffalo and the other members of the school board are understandably upset and want him gone. The board votes tonight on a resolution calling on Paladino to resign within 24 hours or they will ask the state education commissioner to remove him.
The resolution notes that children and families in the district are 70 percent minorities. Paladino is an elected official. Incredibly, two Paladino allies— Patti Pierce and Larry Quinn—don’t support the resolution.
The measure states, in part, “These unambiguously racist, morally repugnant, flagrantly disrespectful, inflammatory and inexcusable comments by Mr. Paladino have garnered both local, national, and international attention that reflects negatively on the Buffalo Board of Education, the City of Buffalo and its leadership and its citizens … ”
The state of New York has a Dignity for All Students law that guarantees students an education free from discrimination and harassment. Paladino says he won’t resign.
