Oh look, we have another local Republican official caught spewing all manner of vile bigotry on Facebook and refusing to resign from office when called out for it. The fact that he’s from North Carolina certainly won’t surprise anyone either.
The local chapter of the NAACP and other organizations have called for Butner’s termination after he made denigrating comments about blacks in a post in reference to a Moral Monday protest.
“Gee, they are all black,” Butner posted. “I guess the white folk could not get off because they were too busy working (and) being productive, good citizens.”
He also claimed liberals and Democrats “don’t have a principled bone in their body and they don’t care even if our constitutional republic is destroyed.”
“To hell with the lesbos, queers, liberals and baby killers,” he added.
Oh, and pro-confederate stuff too:
“The primary difference between the leaders of the Confederate States of America and the Union is that Confederate leaders were godly gentlemen and the Union folks were not,” Butner posted June 5.
Malcolm “Mac” Butner has an appointed position as the chair of the Rowan County Housing Authority, where his job involves dealing with claims of racial discrimination. He should be removed from that position immediately.
