New President of University of Texas College Republicans Just as Awful as the Last One
Read it all. It’s well written and includes way more than just the Tweet.
A month ago, UT College Republicans president Lauren Pierce tweeted her sympathy for those who want to assassinate President Obama:
“Y’all as tempting as it may be, don’t shoot Obama. We need him to go down in history as the WORST president we’ve EVER had! #2012.”
Pierce was forced to resign in disgrace. Not the disgrace of her fellow College Republicans, however, who seem to have found a comparable replacement in former VP Cassie Wright.
A month ago, Wright said this to ABC News about the Pierce scandal:
“Insofar as she’s a representative [of the College Republicans], maybe it shouldn’t be said, but she’s made a positive statement in a way. I don’t really see anything wrong with it. It’s just a personal comment, not representative of any group. Just freedom of speech, you know?”
Pierce made a “positive statement”? Wright doesn’t “really see anything wrong with” such violent, hateful rhetoric against the President of the United States? With publicly stating that the only reason to keep our president alive is so he can “go down in history as the WORST president we’ve EVER had”?
Standing by Pierce’s statement was a terrible start to Wright’s presidency.
But now Wright has started her own legacy of hateful vitriol.
It’s too late to read the original Tweet at Twitter.
