With respect to the latest in a spate of white elderly male racist statements, Commissioner Copeland of Wolfboro, New Hampshire was overheard and admitted to using the “N” word in public to critique the president. He refuses to apologize much less resign for his racist speak and has the chutzpah, cajones and nerve to say it is his free speech right to say whatever he wants. I beg to differ with police Commissioner Copeland of Wolfboro, New Hampshire. This is NOT – I repeat NOT – a question of free speech. He can spew as much hatred as he likes when he is NOT in a public position representing the people of Wolfboro and, in times of national danger, working for the benefit of the entire country as well.
Copeland joins a dubious array of elderly white male bigots and haters of our president. It is an abomination and a slight against not only the people of Wolfboro, New Hampshire but against the nation to which I assume the know-nothing Commissioner swears allegiance. He and right wing extremists like he contribute to the anger, division and racist animus that exists in our nation in our time. It is truly astounding that nearly 150 years after the Civil War there are still those Confederate Southern wannabes to be found even in a northern former Union state.
I hope the racist Police Commissioner is happy with the legacy he leaves to those he loves assuming he has any that love him. I believe the town of Wolfboro is owed an apology and I believe the President of the United States, above anyone else, is owed an apology from the malevolent Copeland as well. He said the president deserves the racist remark and will not apologize to him for it nor resign his Police Commissioner position. Does he think the president deserves that racist epithet because he formulated a plan to help those who were not covered by health insurance to get some? There must be some way the people of Wolfboro can force him out leaving a not-for-whites-only position of Police Commissioner of Wolfboro, New Hampshire open waiting to be filled.
The brilliance and the intellect our president has in his little finger Copeland does not have in his proverbial entire body. Perhaps, it is the jealousy he harbors for those who are clearly intellectually superior to Copeland that forces him to spew his racist venom. In truth, one would not have to go far to be superior in intellect to the Commissioner. Shame on him. I love New Hampshire but I would never spend my money in a town where a public figure spews insulting vitriolic racist hate speech against the President of the United States. Move over, Donald Sterling, you've got company and extend the whites only bench to Nevadan Cliven Bundy as well. Shame on them all!
IT IS OBVIOUS. I DO NOT HAVE TO SAY IT BUT I WILL. GET OUT THE DEMOCRATIC AND PROGRESSIVE VOTE EN MASSE IN NOVEMBER. IT IS IMPERATIVE THESE WINGNUT AND REPUBLICAN DISGUSTING HUMAN BEINGS BE GIVEN NO POWER. SILENCE REPUBLICANS THROUGH YOUR VOTE NO MATTER WHAT VOTER SUPPRESSION TECHNIQUES THEY USE. BEAT THEM AT THEIR OWN GAME AND MAKE VOTER SUPPRESSION BACKFIRE! SEND THIS TO ANYONE YOU CHOOSE.
