READ: 7 of the most offensive Facebook posts by Trump Oklahoma campaign official
A woman identified as a co-chair for Donald Trump’s campaign in Oklahoma has a history of making anti-black and anti-Muslim statements online, the Lost Ogle reported.
Carol Hefner has described the real estate mogul as “politically honest,” and while most of her posts this year have been devoted to supporting him — as well as calling Ben Carson’s rise in the polls “fraudulent” — her online history is riddled with attacks on both President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama on top of the black community.
Talking Points Memo reported that Hefner has been described as a campaign co-chair, and that Trump’s campaign highlighted the endorsement of both her and her husband Robert, calling them “Oklahoma leaders.”
“His approach has been actually refreshing,” she said of Trump before his appearance at the Oklahoma State Fair two months ago. “I think that [women] see a strong potential, they see a strength in him, and they see someone who’s not willing to back down.”
Hefner’s page remains open to the public as of Friday afternoon, as to the posts highlighted below, including one post saying that National Geographic would pay $50 for nude pictures of Michelle Obama, crudely comparing her to women in Africa covered by the magazine:
While Hefner has also posted several images describing the president as a “dictator,” she has also argued that his re-election in 2012 was proof that “more blacks are racists than whites,” as seen here:
She also cheered when protesters carried Confederate battle flags this past July when the president made an appearance in Oklahoma City:
She has also tried to compare the Ku Klux Klan to not only the Affordable Care Act, but the welfare and education systems:
Hefner was less enthused last month after reading about a “Muslim friends and family day” event held at several Six Flags amusement parks, encouraging Christians to boycott the park chain “until they get a spine.”
What she did not mention, as scopes.com noted, is that the parks hold similar events for Christian groups.
Hefner has gone so far as to call Islamic garments like niqabs and burqas “dangerous,” and “a form of oppression and enslavement of women,” as seen here:
She also promoted a story in which Paul R. McHugh, a former professor of psychiatry at Johns Hopkins Medical School, argued that Caitlyn Jenner and other members of the trans community were mentally ill:
But as Think Progress reported, McHugh not only ignored several studies showing that a trans identity can have biological origins, but also came out — so to speak — in support of California’s Proposition 8, the same-sex marriage ban that was struck down by the Supreme Court in 2013.
“McHugh has it totally backwards; it is affirming transgender people’s gender identities and supporting their traditions that helps them do best in society,” Zack Ford wrote.
