Kansas lawmaker apologizes after sharing racist Facebook meme


A Republican state lawmaker from Kansas has come under fierce criticism after he shared a meme on his Facebook page that mocked Mexicans and included a denigrating image of President Obama.

Rep. John Bradford posted an image that depicted a Mexican man in a sombrero with a message in what appears to be broken English celebrating the fact that Obama’s term ends next January. The meme was first posted by the Conservative Country community Facebook page.

Bradford issued a statement on Thursday apologizing for sharing the image, which was apparently removed after it began to draw media attention, according to the Wichita Eagle.

“I did not create the image, but I did share it, which was in bad taste,” Bradford said in a statement. “I regret that decision.”

Some Kansas political leaders called the posting racist, and it drew harsh criticism from Latino community leaders.

“What worries me is the fact that we have a representative in the Kansas Legislature who is willing to treat human beings that he perceives as different with such disregard,” Pedro Irigonegaray, a prominent lawyer and Cuban immigrant, told the Eagle. “And if he’s willing to do it to the Hispanic community, who’s next?”

Rep. John Alcala, a Democrat lawmaker, called the meme “rude, racist and disrespectful,” according to the Eagle.

“And the Republicans wonder why they can’t attract more of the Latino vote,” he said. “Well, here’s a pretty good example.”

Notice the only concern is the votes and nothing else,

We have seriously lost our sense of humor these days

Dipdshidiot of the day: Selfie taker on a stolen tablet after church…….

Selfies taken with stolen Kindle show up in cloud



Los Angeles police say a photo they circulated of two people taken with a stolen Kindle has led to its return.

Police released the photo Thursday that had uploaded automatically to the owner’s cloud account. It showed a photo of a man and a woman who apparently visited church on Ash Wednesday because she had a smudge of ash on her forehead.

Police say a few hours later the 26-year-old man in the picture returned the Kindle, and it has been returned to the owner. The woman in the photo was the man’s mother, who police say had nothing to do with the theft.

Police Capt. Paul Vernon says there was family pressure on the man to return the tablet because his mother was in the picture.

Police say they’ll seek a misdemeanor charge for the man.

The asshats get more and more stupid every day. SMH

 


 

Cops won’t work off-duty at Beyoncé show…….

Miami police union say they are upset that Beyoncé pays homage to Black Panthers

Union president said members voted to not work the Miami show

Miami’s police union members have voted to boycott Beyoncé’s concert at Marlins Park in April because of her Super Bowl performance and the release of a video that pays homage to the Black Panthers.

In a letter urging other police agencies across the country to take a similar stance, Fraternal Order of Police President Javier Ortiz accused the pop icon used this year’s Super Bowl “to divide Americans by promoting the Black Panthers and her anti-police message shows how she does not support law enforcement.”

During Beyoncé’s Super Bowl halftime performance, more than a dozen leather-clad dancers finished the song “Formation” with their firsts balled and raised, a gesture evoking the counter-culture Black Panther movement of the 1960s.

Though it’s not clear if other police departments have taken a similar stance, an online site called AL.com reported that no Tampa police have signed up for off-duty jobs at the sold-out show in Tampa the night after Miami.

In an agreement reached when Marlins Park was built in Little Havana in 2012, Miami police patrol the streets and facade outside the footprint of the Little Havana stadium. Miami Police Maj. Delrish Moss said despite the police lieutenant’s stance, officers will patrol wherever is required.

Beyoncé’s Formation World Tour is scheduled to kick off at Marlins Park on April 27.

She can afford her own security and now she has gotten more publicity than ever she has accomplished her goal. (Hey Beyonce, you have just appealed to the wrong type of people and asking for trouble.)
