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.

In testimony on the Michigan state House floor on Tuesday, Nugent spoke in support of a bill that would reverse a ban on deer and elk baiting. The ban was put in place in 2018 due to suspicions that chronic wasting disease (CWD) was being spread through piles of bait.

For his part, Nugent argued that the ban was ineffective because deer are "swapping spit."

"If they think they can stop deer from swapping spit, they're idiots," Nugent testified, according to The Detroit News.
