NC Housing Official Spews Bigotry on Facebook

Oh look, we have another local Republican official caught spewing all manner of vile bigotry on Facebook and refusing to resign from office when called out for it. The fact that he’s from North Carolina certainly won’t surprise anyone either.

The local chapter of the NAACP and other organizations have called for Butner’s termination after he made denigrating comments about blacks in a post in reference to a Moral Monday protest.

“Gee, they are all black,” Butner posted. “I guess the white folk could not get off because they were too busy working (and) being productive, good citizens.”

He also claimed liberals and Democrats “don’t have a principled bone in their body and they don’t care even if our constitutional republic is destroyed.”

“To hell with the lesbos, queers, liberals and baby killers,” he added.

Oh, and pro-confederate stuff too:

“The primary difference between the leaders of the Confederate States of America and the Union is that Confederate leaders were godly gentlemen and the Union folks were not,” Butner posted June 5.

Malcolm “Mac” Butner has an appointed position as the chair of the Rowan County Housing Authority, where his job involves dealing with claims of racial discrimination. He should be removed from that position immediately.

    Stereotype of black people as lazy?
    Check.

    Generalization about all Democrats being bent on destroying the country?
    Check.

    Homophobic slurs?
    Check.

    Praise for the great Southerners who fought in the War of Northern Aggression?
    Check.

    Looks like I’ve written the perfect Teabagger Facebook post.

    “The primary difference between the leaders of the Confederate States of America and the Union is that Confederate leaders were godly gentlemen and the Union folks were not,”

    An unintentionally accurate statement.

    “The primary difference between the leaders of the Confederate States of America and the Union is that Confederate leaders were seditious, slave owning morons and the Union folks were not”

    There. I fixed that for you.

    A little less time praying and oppressing other human beings, and a little more time making railroads and ammunition factories, and the genteel Southerners might have had the ability (and the cause) to win the Waugh of Nawthun Aggreshun. As a refugee from North Carolina who now lives in a godless Communist paradise (aka Canada), I have to say that I’m very, very grateful that the Confederates prayed so much and lost.

    There were still people in the 90′s (as there probably still are today) who said ‘if the South would’ve won, we would’ve had it made.’ Delusional, bigoted fools, the lot of them.

    Hank Williams Jr. had a whole song of that title. That’s when I removed the C&W station from the presets on my car radio. As I recall, including to the slavery-love, there was also a slur directed at Asians.

    Yeah, the Confederates were so godly that God couldn’t be bothered to help them win the war.

    According to Pat Robertson, we are now the godless Communist paradise of Canuckistan.

    Do us Canuckistanis proud and get it right next time!

    I seriously don’t get the Confederacy-worship that’s so popular in the South and on the right. The Confederates weren’t plucky individualists, they were traitors. The Confederacy wasn’t fighting for freedom, it was fighting for slavery. They absolutely did not hold the moral high ground; slavery had been abolished in almost the entire western world by 1861, and today damn near everybody agrees it was a tragedy and a horror. And the Confederacy LOST! 150 years ago, for crying out loud! Time to get over it, people!

    I am. There’s a North Carolina now?

    It’s because the Dukes of Hazzard was awesome.

    The enduring romance of the Southern Cause lies in the attraction to the mass of white Southerners of having someone to piss down on, because that’s the only consolation to having the neofeudalist Lords of the South pissing down on them:

    “But, you know, someday I’ll get rich by working hard in this coal mine (or Birmingham steel mill, or …) and I’ll be living large like those other rich folk. And in the meantime I’m a free man! who doesn’t have that guaranteed roof over his head or meals provided by the plantation owner. Damn lucky slaves.”

    @Seth, fellow Canuck here. We do have our own share of racist and idiot, scumball politicians. And religion, at least in my opinion, still hold way too much sway in our society, but I totally agree. Even with Harper trying to immitate Putin, I’d much rather be here.

    It is beyond sad that people like Butner even still exist while still keeping such a twisted worldview and are free to spread their vileness around…and much worse is that he ever got into a position of authority. The “Confederate States?” Really?! And here I was thinking we’re living in the 21st century. Silly me.

    Perhaps the time is right for Stars-and-Bars toilet paper.

    You clearly don’t understand the enormity of our socialist slavery. We’ve had to endure more than half a century of free, universal health insurance. For nearly a decade, we’ve had no protection at all against the risk of marrying someone of the same sex. And we’re not even allowed to carry a loaded AR-15 into a Tim Horton’s doughnut shop. When will the madness end?!

    Using this logic, we can presume that God’s tornado aim is as intended; and we non-Christians are destined for Heaven while Christians burn in Hell. Heh.
