An Earle, AR volunteer firefighter has been relieved of duty after he went on a racist rant against black athletes who protest police violence during the national anthem, according to Little Rock’s News Channel 3.

He went on to rage that “Obama lovin snowflakes” ought to be “shot on sight.”

Earle business owner William Davis said, “He should not have made those remarks…you’re talking about people’s lives.”

According to Jonathan Lemire of the Associated Press, Donald Trump is reportedly focusing his ire on Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, along with Neil Gorsuch,  for siding with the majority of justices who ruled on Thursday that the state of New York must be given his tax returns as part of a criminal investigation.
