GOP Flack Quits After Calling NFL Players “Baboons”

The Hill reports:

A county GOP official in Pennsylvania resigned on Friday, just a day after it was revealed that she repeatedly called NFL players who kneeled during the national anthem “baboons.”

Carla Maloney, secretary of the Republican Committee of Beaver County, made the comments in a series of Facebook posts, according to The Beaver County Times.

Maloney reportedly published the posts under the name Carla Belich Fueller. On Friday, Maloney acknowledged writing “distasteful, inappropriate and insensitive” posts on social media and apologized.

The Times Online reports:

“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,” 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.”

Maloney then complained about “reverse racism” in America and said she was “sick of the name calling, rioting, shooting, and looting.” She predicted a civil war “soon than later.” Further in the thread, Maloney turned her anger toward the Steelers and her racist language grew even harsher.

“Steelers are now just as bad as the rest of the over paid 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.
