With the advent of President-elect Donald Trump’s victory over Hillary Clinton his supporters now feel free to share their racist views with the world without fear of reprisal. Thankfully, the world does not work that way and individuals who prove themselves to be against equality for all people will continue to be shunned and socially punished for their disgusting behavior. Such is the case with Pamela Taylor, the Clay County Development Corporation Director, from West Virginia. Mr. Taylor took to Facebook to share an awful statement about First Lady Michelle Obama and the Internet reacted with righteous indignation to put Ms. Taylor in her rightful place.
The post in question by Pamela Taylor said:
It will be refreshing to have a classy, beautiful, dignified First Lady in the White House. I’m tired of seeing an ape in heels.
In response to Taylor’s hatred, the actual mayor of Clay, Beverly Whaling, responded by saying, “Just made my day Pam.”
Now the denizens of the Internet are seeking to have both of the women fired, as public officials who would espouse such hateful rhetoric are unfit for their positions. The post in question was quickly deleted after the Internet’s wrath began.
Taylor, however, is not backing down. She claims that individuals who have roasted her online are slandering her good name, and that they have committed a “hate crime” against her. This type of obliviousness where individuals like Taylor and Whaling believe their actions are acceptable is part and parcel the problem with the Conservative movement. They both deserve to be fired, and hopefully they both will be very soon.
