You would think Pres. Barack Obama receives enough shade from Mitt Romney and the Republican party, but there’s someone in Puerto Rico who couldn’t resist a drank of that hater-ade too.
Heidi Wys, the main adviser to House of Representatives President Jennifer Gonzalez, went on Twitter last week and directed racial insults to Obama, soon after he announced that First Lady Michelle Obama’s birthday was coming up.
“Who cares?” wrote Wys, a white member of Puerto Rico’s New Progressive Party. “Take her to Burger King, buy her a sundae with double banana [sic], take her to your homeland, Kenya!”
This wasn’t the first time Wys shared her racial bigotry towards Pres. Obama via Twitter. In response to a post by a Puerto Rico online newspaper on July 30, Wys advised reporters to investigate the authenticity of Obama’s birth certificate, jumping on the right-wing bandwagon to prove he isn’t a natural American citizen.
“I fight with Obama with all the strength in my heart and passion as a descendant of germans [sic]!!” she wrote.
On an earlier date, Wys sent yet another tweet to Obama declining a general invitation to have dinner with the President.
“Wah! Wah! I feel like vomiting! Dinner with a guy borned [sic] in Kenya and claims he was borned [sic] in Hawaii!” she wrote, clearly enraged with misspellings and all, on July 18.
We understand everyone may not support Obama, but any form of explicit and racial hatred is totally unacceptable. We hope a proper investigation will take place and result in Wys’ resignation or termination.
