I’ll bet you they’ve got nothing on Russell Wiseman, the mayor of the Memphis suburb of Arlington.
Earlier this week, Mayor Wiseman made a few comments on his Facebook page in which he clamied that Barack Obama’s Tuesday night speech on the war in Arghanistan was deliberately timed to block the Christian message of the Peanuts Christmas special.
Among the quotes is this gem:
“Ok, so this is total crap, we sit the kids down to watch ‘The Charlie Brown Christmas Special’ and our muslim president is there, what a load … try to convince me that wasn’t on purpose. Ask the man if he believes that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and he will give you a 10 minute dissertation about it when the answer should simply be ‘yes’”
Later on in the thread, he went after Obama’s supporters, saying:
“you Obama people need to move to a muslim country … oh wait, that’s America … pitiful.”
Then later on in the rant, he let this one fly:
“You know, our forefathers had it written in the original Constitution that ONLY property owners could vote, if that has stayed in there, things would be different …”
Wow…. That’s all I can say, just wow.
