Remember when President Obama incited violence amongst his base, saying that people of color or different ethnicities should “go back to their home countries?” Yeah… neither do I. Our current, so-called “president” on the other hand has done this and more, stating that Reps, Alexandria Ocasia-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley, and Rashida Tlaib should go back to their home countries.
‘So interesting to see “Progressive” Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly and viciously telling the people of the United States, the greatest and most powerful Nation on earth, how our government is to be run.
‘Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came?’
Now, after witnessing what Trump has done this entire week, especially at his “I’m president and you’re not” rally in Greenville, NC, when he defended his tweets and subsequent racist remarks as the crowd chanted “SEND HER BACK” regarding Democratic Rep., Ilhan Omar, it appears that Trump has lit a bigger fire under his base of Trumpian buffoons and it’s getting dangerous.

Today, taking a cue from our Racist-in-Chief, a police officer in Gretna, Lousiana posted a comment on his Facebook page calling U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez a “vile idiot” who “needs a round, and I don’t mean the kind she used to serve.” Then, in a racist reference to a Mexican gum often sold by children in border towns, he commented that it “must be hard living with an IQ of a Chiclet.”
According to Nola:
‘The comment, which alludes to the freshman Democrat’s past work as a New York City bartender while apparently saying she should be shot, comes amid increasing scrutiny of racist and violent social media posts by police officers in departments across the country.
‘Rispoli’s comment referred to a fake news story he posted to his personal Facebook page on Thursday at 1:51 p.m. The story’s headline attributed a fabricated quote to Ocasio-Cortez saying, “We pay soldiers too much.” The photo on the post is marked as “satire” and it had been labeled “false” by the website snopes.comon Wednesday, but Rispoli appeared to be upset by it.
‘Charlie Rispoli, who has been on the Gretna police force since 2005, could not be reached for comment, but Chief Arthur Lawson called the post “disturbing” when it was shown to him Friday.’
Chief Arthur Lawson stated:
‘I will tell you this: This will not go unchecked.
‘I’m not going to take this lightly and this will be dealt with on our end. It’s not something we want someone that’s affiliated with our department to make these types of statements. That’s not going to happen.’
Lawson then says that he doesn’t believe that the comments posted by Officer Rispoli pose any actual threat, they definitely go against the department’s social media policy.
‘Whether you agree or disagree with the message of these elected officials and how frustrated you may or may not get, this certainly is not the type of thing that a public servant should be posting.’
Officer Rispoli’s original Facebook post has been taken down, but like our so-called “president” often does, he forgot that the internet is forever.
