A Trump appointee has resigned after CNN revealed a slew of racist, sexist and Islamophobic statements he had made on an internet radio show that he hosted. And this is what happens when you hire people from the shallow end of the wingnutosphere gene pool instead of people who are actually accomplished and qualified.
Higbie, a staunch Trump supporter, made the comments as host of the internet radio program “Sound of Freedom.” During one December 2013 show, Higbie accused “the black race” of “lax morality.”
“Only one person was actually cordial to me,” Higbie said, as CNN’s KFile reports. “Every other black person was rude. They wanted me to either load the wood, completely split it for them or some sort of you know assistance in labor. Now, mind you the ad was for free firewood, come take it all you want. And I believe that this translates directly into the culture that is breeding this welfare and the high percentage of people on welfare in the black race. It’s a lax of morality.”On his radio show, Higbie also disparaged Muslims, insisting he doesn’t like people who practice the religion “because their ideology sucks.”
“Go back to your Muslim sh*thole and go crap in your hands and bang little boys on Thursday nights,” Higbie said. “I just don’t like Muslim people. People always rip me a new one for that. Carl, you’re racist, you can’t, you’re sexist. I’m like Jesus Christ. I just don’t like Muslim people because their ideology sucks.”
He has now resigned from that position, prompting speculation that he’s in line for a key position at the White House, or perhaps that Trump is going to nominate him for the Supreme Court. After all, he only hires the very best people. Just ask him, he’ll tell you.
