Remember the good ol’ days when politicians didn’t use social media and they’d reserve their racists comments for press conferences or government meetings? Those days are long gone.
Well, John Bradford, Republican legislator from Kansas, didn’t actually say anything, he shared this meme, which shows a man in a sombrero, a deformed President and celebrates the ending of Obama’s presidency. Of course, incredibly offensive to both Mexicans and President Obama.
What’s worse is that he didn’t think anything of it and only deleted it two days later, after receiving criticism from his Democrat colleagues: “Kansans should not have to tolerate this type of bigoted mentality from anyone, especially an elected official,” said Melody McCray-Miller, Kansas Democratic Party’s vice chairwoman.
To that, Bradford said: “I did not create the image, but I did share it, which was in bad taste. I regret that decision.”
Listen, we all make mistakes with social media, but the old adage still applies, “if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t
say anything at all share.”
