Another public employee has been fired for a racist social media post aimed at first lady Michelle Obama. Following the election of Donald Trump, police officer Joel Husk of Talladega, Alabama, went to Facebook to share his racist views with a meme.

The meme included a photo of Melania Trump with the words, “Fluent in Slovenian, English, French, Serbian, and German.” There was also a picture of Michelle Obama with the words, “Fluent in Ghetto.” The meme was racist and false considering Melania Trump attempted to be as fluent as Obama by plagiarizing her speech during the RNC.

Furthermore, Husk has a history of racist and anti-Obama posts on social media. In another meme that Husk posted, a member of the KKK is carrying the Confederate flag with the words, “The KKK is a hate group, right? Isn’t it about time we start being honest in America … and admit that #blacklivesmatter is also a hate group?”

He also posted another meme which suggested that Obama was responsible for the attacks against police in Dallas this past summer.

Husk’s racist Facebook post against Michelle Obama came days after Pamela Ramsey Taylor, director of Clay County Development Corporation in West Virginia, made a disparaging Facebook post aimed at Michelle Obama.

In the racist post, Taylor wrote, “It will be refreshing to have a classy, beautiful, dignified First Lady in the White House. I’m tired of seeing a [sic] Ape in heels.” The post was then liked by the mayor of Clay, Beverly Whaling, who wrote, “Just made my day Pam” in the comments section.

The post soon went viral as Taylor’s racist views created an uproar. Although she deleted the post, Taylor was placed on leave from her job and Whaling resigned from her position as mayor.

Husk, a member of the Talladega Police Department for two years, has since been fired.

      Really??!!! You don’t because it doesn’t affect you. However it is clear the person has a bias against African Americans. Therefore he should not be in a position to make decisions that could affect my life, literally. In light of all the issues with police shootings (on both sides) you say “Why do we care?” You dumb bitch (whether you are male or female)!! You just another one these closeted racist that Donald Trump has empowered to start showing your true colors. Be careful because Trump is not going to send any lawyers to save you when you open your dumb mouth one time to many and find yourself out of work or in legal trouble.

          You are such a small minded, pitiful, scary little man. However, Trump did say he like the “uneducated”. Funny how you guys embraced and yelled “Yea. That’s Me!”. Who supports someone that calls them stupid? Once a person starts using Nigger and terms like that I automatically realize I am talking to someone with a lower verbal and mental capacity and it just becomes entertainment after that. Thanks for the entertainment.

          I have never received any free government assistance. I served in the US military. Protect your women??? Bruh this isn’t the Wild Wild West anymore. LOL.

          One last thing please make sure you don’t take advantage of any business or homeowner tax credits or write offs. Also, make sure you tell the government they can keep your Social Security benefits. I wouldn’t want you taking any “free shit”.

    So it is okay to have a classless stripper in the white house, than a woman who carries herself with class. Mind you First Lady Obama graduated from an Ivy League school, and Trump’s wife majored in Stripping! Woow, how classes is that!
