The Lincoln Journal newspaper in Lincoln County West Virginia is facing some backlash after publishing the racist and homophobic rant of a tea party-type lunatic in its “Gripe and Gratitudes” section of the paper.
The rant was transcribed from a voicemail left by an anonymous caller to the paper in response to a story the paper ran about the Lincoln County Board of Education firing lesbian teacher Kelli Burns. Burns was terminated from her job at Guyan Valley Middle School after accusing board members of forcing students to write fictitious complaints that she had tried to “turn them gay.”
Here is the transcribed voice mail:
“We were really glad to hear that School Board is getting rid of them qu**rs. The next thing is we need to get rid of all the n****rs, the sp*cs, the k*kes and the w*ps. You know even them Catholics, they are wrong as baby eaters. We need to clear them people out and have good, white, God fearing Christians and everybody else needs to be put to death for their abominations. We’ll keep Lincoln County white and right. Thank you.”
At least he said “thank you.”
