There is definitely a common thread among Trump supporters who make the news for the wrong reasons, from actress Rosanne Barr, Florida Rep. Ron DeSantis to now Pennsylvania GOP party secretary Carla Maloney. They all like to makes references to Black people and primates. According to the Beaver County Times, Carla Maloney, a Republican county official in Pennsylvania, has resigned after it was revealed that she’d written Facebook posts referring to kneeling NFL players as “baboons.”
The Facebook page where Maloney made the comments has been taken down.
According to the Beaver County Times, Maloney’s posts were directed at players kneeling during the national anthem .
“Tired of these over paid ignorant blacks telling me what I should believe in. I will tell you what I believe in and that is our Flag the National Anthem and America period end of story,” the Times reported she wrote. “You don’t like it here go to Africa see how you like it there. We are all Americans not African American not Hispanic American. WE ARE ALL AMERICAN.”
The Steelers were not exempt from Maloney’s vitriol.
“Steelers are now just as bad as the rest of the overpaid baboons. You respect your flag, country, and our national anthem. How many men and women have lost limbs or died to protect this country and you baboons want respect,” she wrote, according to the Times. “If you want respect you need to earn it and so far you haven’t. Stop watching, or going to a game and paying for overpriced food, water, and tickets. Let’s see how the baboons get paid when white people stop paying their salaries.”
