Mayor Says His Facebook Post Calling Obama A Muslim Who 'Destroyed Democracy' Is Just Free Speech

Superior, Wisconsin Mayor Bruce Hagen posted a photo of First Lady Michelle Obama to his Facebook page, calling President Barack Obama a Muslim, and claiming he has destroyed democracy. Hagen did not offer any proof.

"Unbelievable!," Hagen's post, which is now hidden from public view, reads, according to WDIO/Eyewitness News. "She and her Muslim partner have destroyed the fabric of democracy that was so very hard fought for!"

The mayor refuses to retract the statement. WDIO reports Hagen "said he stands by the statement and said it was an expression of free speech."

Five members of the Superior City Council disagree, and are publicly asking Hagen to remove the post.

2. I believe

that it is free speech. It's is also in my opinion rather stupid speech, but I suspect the Mayor would not share my opinion.

3. If he won't remove it, they should remove him...

 

There should be some consequences in this life--I don't want to wait for him to burn in Hell.
