Boner Candidate #1: YOU WILL BE A RUN-OVER DUMB ASS

A fire department captain in South Carolina’s capital has been dismissed for posting on social media that he would run over protesters if they were still blocking traffic when his shift ended. News media outlets report that Capt. Jimmy Morris, a 16-year veteran of the department, was fired Monday over Facebook posts about Black Lives Matter protesters. Protesters closed an intersection near the Statehouse and prompted the closing of a small section of Interstate 126, a thoroughfare into Columbia, late Sunday. There were no arrests, injuries or property damage reported. The protests came after blacks were killed by police in Minnesota and Louisiana and white officers were gunned down in Dallas. The news reports say that in one post, Morris said the “idiots” blocking traffic “better not be there when I get off work or there is gonna be some run over dumb a—-.”

Boner Candidate #3: SOMEONE HAS TO CARRY ON THE RACIST TRADITION IN SOUTH CAROLINA

To no one’s surprise, an Iowa congressman who complained about Harriet Tubman being the face of the new $20 bill, and who defended South Carolina’s display of the Confederate flag, has that very same racist flag sitting on his desk. Rep. Steve King, an Iowan Republican (and not the guy who writes the scary books), has bravely decided to carry the mantle of racism in a state that directly fought against it. When a video featuring King aired Friday during a segment about immigration on a local news channel, a small Confederate flag could be seen on King’s desk, as the blog Iowa Starting Line points out. Last year, less than a month after a gunman massacred nine black churchgoers in Charleston, South Carolina ― the accused killer, Dylann Roof, is an avowed white supremacist who has said he wanted to start a race war ―
