Florida St. communications lecturer resigns after bemoaning ‘Northern fagoot elitism’ on Facebook

Published

on

A senior lecturer in the College of Business at Florida State University resigned over the weekend after she posted a torrent of racist, homophobic comments on a Facebook photograph of outgoing Attorney General Eric Holder, the Tallahassee Democrat reports.

Deborah O’Connor was responding to a post by Colin Lively, a New Yorker, about Holder’s decision to investigate the shooting death of a 12-year-old boy carrying a toy gun.

“YOU elected POTUS, Holder et al. And they are supposed to represent all Americans, not just blacks. Why don’t these ass clowns insert themselves into their stories?” O’Connor began by asking.

After Lively and others answered, she said, “[t]ake your Northern fagoot [sic] elitism and shove it up your ass. You are an intellectual fraud, just like your Messiah. Obama has single-handedly turned our once great society into a Ghetto Culture, rivaling that of Europe. France is almost at war because of his filthy rodent Muslims who are attacking Native Frenchmen and women.”

“I teach at a University, you asshole. What do you do?” she asked.

Upon learning that Lively is both gay and a hair stylist, she replied, “I’m signing off now. I don’t talk to you people.”

Until her resignation this weekend, O’Connor — who earned a doctorate in English Literature from Florida State University — was a senior lecturer in communication at the Florida State College of Business.

In her resignation letter, she claimed that the incident was “the only black mark” on her employment record. “I sense that the path of least resistance is for me to resign to forestall a litigation, although I must emphasize that I do not believe the punishment fits the ‘crime,'” she wrote.

CORRECTION: The story originally identified O’Connor as having a doctorate in Education.

Dem House members shred GOP counterparts for trying to adjourn when Americans are desperate for help

Published

on

Republicans in the House of Representatives on Thursday tried to get Congress to adjourn as part of a stunt to attack some Democratic members who are taking votes over Zoom instead of in person.

The motion was filed by Rep. Angry Biggs (R-AZ), a Trump-loving conservative hardliner who has relentlessly attacked medical professionals during the novel coronavirus pandemic, who wanted to adjourn because so many of his colleagues are not voting in person.

‘I’m utterly embarrassed’: Michigan Republican admits Rudy Giuliani ‘waded into the realm of insanity’

Published

on

Michigan state Rep. Aaron Miller, a Republican, this week accused Rudy Giuliani of entering the "realm of insanity" with his testimony to lawmakers in Michigan.

Miller made the remarks following Giuliani's wild testimony to the Michigan House Oversight Committee.

"I’m happy to thoughtfully listen to evidence and claims and that was what today was supposed to be about, but Mr. Giuliani’s final statement waded into the realm of insanity," Miller said, according to The Detroit News. "He made wild and broad partisan insults for several minutes that had nothing to do with the election, and it was frankly unacceptable, shameful, and pathetic and distracts from any evidence that we might hear."
