Trump-loving pastor resigns from school board after raging about racial mixing and ‘white genocide’

Published

A school board member in Harrison, Maine has resigned from his post after the revelation of social media posts criticizing minorities and Muslims.

The Bangor Daily News reported Monday that Robert “Bob” Celeste, a member of the RSU 17 school board in Western Maine, claims his resignation “had nothing to do with the fools that say, ‘That’s racist.’”

“They can’t even define ‘racist,'” the board member who once posted a meme that depicted a white mother warning her daughter to not “betray her race” said.

After the Islamic State took credit for a terrorist attack in Paris, France in 2015, Celeste shared a post that appeared to threaten Muslims.

“To all Muslims,” the post read. “The USA has the highest concentration of Armed Christians in the world, just in case you forget.”

When speaking to the Daily News about his resignation, the erstwhile school board member said that “born-again Christians should not be putting their kids in a public school,” and that students in Maine schools are taught “lies,” including that “that racism is anyone that disagrees with Islam.”

In an interview published soon after the revelation of his posts, Celeste blasted schools that would cater to “the nonbelievers, the Jews and everyone else.”

“Is there anything wrong with protecting the white race?” Celeste mused.

Along with serving on the Western Maine school board, Celeste is also the “senior pastor” at ChristianPatriot.com. A perusal of his Facebook page reveals a number of posts made in admiration of President Donald Trump. He also regularly shares posts from fringe right-wing sites including Breitbart, and appears to be a proponent of the Pizzagate conspiracy theory.

NBC's "Saturday Night Live" aired an opening skit that was just one giant attack on the electoral college.

A snowman introduced the segment, saying that we could look in on the holiday table conversation thanks to hacked Nest cams.

The skit featured a house in San Francisco, California, a second in Charleston, South Carolina and a third in Atlanta, Georgia.

Each dinner table debated impeachment, and the differences between President Donald Trump and his predecessor, President Barack Obama.

But then the snowman said that none of their votes matter.

"They'll debate the issues all year long, but then it all comes down to 1,000 people in Wisconsin who won't even think about the election until the morning of," the snowman said. "And that's the magic of the Electoral College."
