The above was seen on one of two of Samuel Wurzelbacher's, better known as "Joe the Plumber", Facebook Pages today. Now I won't accuse the man of being a racist as some might be inclined to do but he sure as hell is pretty damn dumb.
Aside from the fact it simply is not true it is lacking in character, it is insensitive in the extreme, and sure as hell does not serve any purpose other than making as ass of Joe the Plumber. I might add that it is very unlikely anyone could have done a better job of making Joe look like as ass.
Straight from TPM:
Samuel Wurzelbacher, better known as "Joe the Plumber," took to Facebook on Wednesday to post his thoughts about the ongoing conflict in Ferguson, Mo. and compared the protestors to "cockroaches."
In two separate Facebook posts, Wurzelbacher speculated about the clashes and looting that have broken out in Ferguson in the wake of the killing of a black unarmed teen by a white police officer:
Since gaining fame during Sen. John McCain's (R-AZ) 2008 presidential campaign, Wurzelbacher has used his notoriety as a platform to weigh in on an array of national issues.
Earlier this year, following a shooting at the University of California Santa Barbara, Wurzelbacher said the killings should not lead to gun control measures. "Your dead kids don’t trump my Constitutional rights," he wrote.
