Va. GOP official resigns after
controversial Facebook post

Washington Post, by Jenna Portnoy

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 8/7/2014 11:19:34 AM

A Virginia GOP official who posted a message on his Facebook page that questioned whether Muslim Americans have made positive contributions to U.S. society has resigned. Bob FitzSimmonds, treasurer of the state Republican Party, distributed his resignation letter to party officials Wednesday night. “It seems that no matter how careful I might be, I will periodically give occasion for others to portray the party in a bad light, so long as I am a party official. After discussion with several party leaders it seems clear that I will either need to stop posting on social media or step down from my party

I´m sick of the hyper political correctness destroying this country! Now it´s controversial for stating the truth?? He RIGHTFULLY asks: “Exactly what part of our nation’s fabric was woven by Muslims" after Obama´s ridiculous comment marking the end of Ramadan. It grieves me so that we no longer live in a free country. He never should have resigned.

I´m sick of Republicans falling on their swords because they say or do something that annoys the PC gods, but Dems never apologize for anything, ever and that´s just fine.
I agree with the above posters: answer the question, don´t kill the messenger.

I just had this conversation with a liberal democrat last night. She asked me what contributions Muslims had made to this country.

The Republican party is a bunch of gutless cowards.

FitzSimmons resigned because he made a very undiplomatic statement on Facebook and handed the Dhimmi party another weapon they might use.
A regular citizen can say what he wants (unless he´s a college student or Ivy League professor, of course). A party official has to watch what he says in public.
No. 2 said it best. He fell on his sword for his party. He could have done better by never signing up for Facebook or Twitter, but the past can´t be undone. (That´s unless you´re a Muslim President with friends in the Hawaiian state government and at his colleges -- then you can at least hide the past.)

Numerous contributions were made to civilization by Arabs. Unfortunately, all of them were made before the Prophet appeared. Upon his appearance, all learning not connected with him and his visions was irrelevant.

We have numerous Greek works because of their translations into Arabic. Including the five books of Euclid, need I say, And the work of al´Khorizmi, from whom we learned Algebra.
The Muslims finally completely destroyed the Great Library in Alexandria, deeming all works there to be unneeded. So don´t go looking for Muslim contributions.
There aren´t any.

The only "contribution" muslims have made to America is to clear the skyline in Manhattan by removing those two really tall buildings that were blocking the view...

I guarantee if you didn´t mention his party affiliation and just quoted his statement, nobody except for maybe a few muslims would have gotten upset. But PC rules thanks to our Demon-RAT overlords, so he had to fall on his sword for the good of the party.

What a pathetic, cowardly, impotent nation we have become (just like our president)...

#8, so by folding over the nothingburgher, the democrats will go easy on the GOP. They probably won´t ever mention this or make up stuff or go after every non communist in America, right?

He really, really should have used the ´furor´ to talk about the new unAmerica where you don´t have the right to question the left about anything. It´s also way past time someone pressed the muslim advocates to prove they have any idea of what basic American values are and if they have any intention of fallowing them.

A sniffling Attorney General Eric Holder fought back tears on Thursday as President Barack Obama praised his legal legacy and wished him well outside the federal govermnent. Although Holder will leave the Justice Department under a cloudbank of controversies, the president gushed in a stirring political eulogy that ´he believes, as I do, that justice is not just an abstract theory. It’s a living and breathing principle.´ Holder told a televised White House gathering that he has ´very mixed emotions´ about his departure, which is on hold until his replacement can win Senate confirmation. But he had heartfelt words for

UNITED NATIONS — President Barack Obama is carving out a wide swath the Pacific Ocean for an expanded marine preserve, putting the waters off-limits to drilling and most fishing in a bid to protect fragile underwater life. The revamped expanded Pacific Remote Islands Marine National Monument will cover 490,000 square miles - an area roughly three times the size of California - and will become the largest marine preserve in the world. Millions of seabirds, sea turtles and marine mammals live in the bio-rich expanse included by the new monument, which will also add new protections for more than 130

‘Republicans Are People, Too’

This is what we’ve come to: One of Mitt Romney’s former ad men has launched an entire campaign around the idea that “Republicans Are People, Too.” And, unsurprisingly, some liberals are amused. MSNBC’s Steve Benen derided the message as “overly defensive” and wrote: “If you have to remind the public that Republicans ‘are people’ and ‘have emotions,’ then you’re implicitly suggesting that Republicans’ basic humanity is, at least for some, in doubt.” Well…sometimes, yeah, it is in doubt. Okay, sure, no one’s going around saying conservatives and Republicans aren’t human. But there’s often a host of negative assumptions and stereotyping, fueled by our liberal

He´s previously been spotted as a possible successor to Holder. He previously served as the Justice Department´s head of Civil Rights. Heck, Obama likes his so much, he plagiarizes his speeches.

FERGUSON – Department of Justice investigators on Wednesday heard one story after another about police harassment and brutality in Ferguson, the suburban St. Louis city where 18-year-old Michael Brown was shot and killed by a police officer last month. At least 300 people crammed into a room at St. Louis Community College´s Florissant Valley campus for the meeting hosted by the department´s Civil Rights Division. The investigators were seeking direct input from residents who live in and near Ferguson. "We go in and we try to figure out: ´Is (misconduct) happening? Is it a pattern?

Republican Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert said that Lois Lerner will miss departing-Attorney General Eric Holder’s presence in the Department of Justice. Holder, who announced his resignation as attorney general Thursday, has been overseeing a federal criminal investigation into the IRS scandal that has been accused of protecting the key Obama administration officials involved. “For many years now, I have been calling for Attorney General Holder’s resignation,” Gohmert said in a statement. “Not only has he lied before members of Congress and, ultimately, been held in contempt, he has obfuscated the truth and been the most partisan, partial, prejudiced, and self-pitying attorney general

Fox’s Outnumbered feasted on the resignation announcement of Attorney General Eric Holder Thursday, listing Republican objections to Holder’s tenure, which range from Fast & Furious to trying 9/11 perpetrators in Manhattan. But it was — wait for it — the Black Panthers around which the argument coalesced, with cohost Kirsten Powers and #oneluckyguy Jesse Watters clashing over what, if anything, had even happened that Holder allegedly had or had not ignored. “He let the Black Panthers off the hook when they were voter-intimidating people!” Waters claimed, possibly the first time that’s been used as a transitive verb. “There’s not enough time to

When Dario Guerrero, an illegal immigrant who found out about his status in high school, told Harvard that he was in the country illegally, the school encouraged him to apply--and gave him a full scholarship after he was accepted. Writing in the Washington Post, Guerrero, who is currently a junior at the university, said after an MIT official recommended that he not apply to the school during a trip to visit college, he "left the office in a daze" because MIT had been his dream school.

What can be said about Eric Holder’s six years as attorney general that PJ Media hasn’t already said? The news that Holder is going to resign should be bittersweet to anyone who cares about racial equality and the rule of law. The damage he has already done to the country leaves a turbulent wake that is ill-matched to the financial reward awaiting him at a shameless and large Washington, D.C., law firm. Our country is more polarized and more racially divided because of Eric Holder. He turned the power of the Justice Department into a racially motivated turnout machine for the

President Barack Obama returned a formal military salute with a one-handed coffee-cup salute Tuesday, only a few hours after he dispatched the nation’s military on their attack mission into northern Syria. White House aides posted the sloppy salute video on Instagram. The commander in chief offered the coffee-cup salute when he disembarked from his U.S. Marine Corps helicopter in New York, as he made his way to the United Nations General Assembly. “President Obama just landed in New York for #UNGA2014,” says the caption. The salute is “the most important of all military courtesies,” says a manual for Marine Corps officer candidates. “In some situations,

Eric Holder Jr., the nation´s first black U.S. attorney general, is preparing to announce his resignation Thursday after a tumultuous tenure marked by civil rights advances, national security threats, reforms to the criminal justice system and five and a half years of fights with Republicans in Congress. Two sources familiar with the decision tell NPR that Holder, 63, intends to leave the Justice Department as soon as his successor is confirmed, a process that could run through 2014 and even into next year. A former U.S. government official says Holder has been increasingly "adamant" about his desire to leave soon

President Obama on Wednesday delivered a speech at the United Nations filled with his usual soaring rhetoric of global collectivism and the importance of “international norms.” But the president also displayed a shocking naivete about global affairs, religion, Islam — a Pollyannaish interpretation on the state of the world and America’s role in it. Although Mr. Obama won a Nobel Peace Prize just eight months into office, the president made his annual trip to the ineffectual world council to deliver a call to war. “Ladies and gentlemen, we come together at a crossroads between war and peace,

The View is a television show that, apparently, a lot of women watch. Currently, Rosie O’Donnell, who was once famous for something–I have no idea what–is one of the hosts. Still, many women watch. So this video of The View’s women grappling with the Obama administration’s response to ISIS terrorism is noteworthy. I want to highlight O’Donnell’s contribution near the end: We are bombing Syria because Syria has so much oil, so there is a “financial incentive.” What the Hell is this supposed to mean? Why are liberals obsessed with oil? And what, exactly, is the “financial incentive?” Here is the

Rush Limbaugh apparently tips generously, which sometimes makes people who dislike him feel quite awkward. In one case, a waitress-turned-award-winning-author revealed that she felt so awkward, that she donated both of his $1,000 tips to an abortion charity. Merritt Tierce, whose debut novel Love Me Back chronicles her time at a high-end Dallas steakhouse, revealed in an interview with Dallas News that, at the time, she was also the executive director of the Texas Equal Abortion (TEA) Fund, which provides financial assistance to low-income women seeking abortions.

Normally, no one would care that in a recent Atlantic essay — “Why I Hope to Die at 75” — 57-year-old Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel argued that living to be 75 years old was long enough for anyone. After 75, Emanuel suggests, “We are no longer remembered as vibrant and engaged but as feeble, ineffectual, even pathetic.” But Emanuel is no garden-variety crackpot. Nor is he a wannabe science-fiction writer dreaming of a centrally planned planet of robust youthful humanoids.
