Yes, we’re opening calling Mandy Connell a race-baiting instigator who needs to move back to Florida. There is no place in this community for such hate.
She’s now spent a couple years cracking “raccoon” jokes, using the term “half-breed” in reference to Barack Obama and throwing veiled “yellow star” remarks at prominent Jewish leaders like Congressman John Yarmuth.
Her ridiculous remarks have done nothing but drive wedges in this already divided community.
But let’s go ahead and point out why her Hitler-Yellow Star-Gun Control shenanigans are bogus. Click here:
Its origins can be traced back to at least the early 1980s, when opponents of a Chicago proposal to ban handguns invoked it in the largely Jewish suburb of Skokie by “reminding village residents that the Nazis disarmed the Jews as a preliminary to sending them to the gas chambers,” the Chicago Tribune reported. In 1989, a new pro-gun group called Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership began arguing that the 1968 federal gun control bill once favored by the NRA’s old guard “was lifted, almost in its entirety, from Nazi legislation.” (That false claim is still being repeated.)
Go read it all.
This wouldn’t be an issue if there weren’t a years-long string of her racist horse crap stretching from Florida to the Commonwealth.
To make matters worse, she attempts to blow her racist, Anti-semitic remarks off as if they’re nothing:
And it seems local businesses like Impellizzer’s are ready to defend her remarks:
Possibility City! We’re sure she’ll be on her streak of blaming the “libs” for the words that have come out of her own mouth for several days.
She has yet to offer a sincere apology that wasn’t cloaked in self-important humor. (Trust us – we know a lot about self-importance.) Maybe it’s time for this city’s leaders – both elected and community – to step up to take this ridiculous foaming at the mouth on.
