Mayor Bruce Hagen of Superior, Wisconsin has been asked to either apologize or resign after a comment he made on a Facebook photo of Michelle Obama. He called him a “Muslim” who has destroyed the “fabric of American democracy.”
“Unbelievable! She and her Muslim partner have destroyed the fabric of Democracy that was so very hard fought for,” he wrote, a local Fox News affiliate reported.
City councilor Graham Garfield said a recall for Mr. Hagen is not out of the question, but it would be left up to the public.
Think about that. Mayor Hagen offered an opinion and some, probably leftists, want to destroy his career.
Mayor Hagen thought the same thing.
“Do we still have freedom of speech in the country? Sometimes I kind of forget,” he told Fox.
He’s not apologizing or resigning. He’s in his first term and won his last term with 55% of the vote.
Hagen said he holds the office in high regard but not Obama.
The city councilors demand he apologize.
“I’m not saying he’s done anything criminal, but he’s certainly put his leadership capabilities in question,” said one.
The councilor felt the mention of “Muslim” was derogatory. He also believes the mayor has to be nonpartisan – that’s a first for me.
I don’t remember anyone calling for heads to roll when George Bush was called a monkey or a murderer.
