The mayor of West York in Pennsylvania is being asked to step down, and he has no intentions of doing so.
The mayor of a small town in Pennsylvania has made a hobby out of posting racist memes critical of President Obama and the left in general, and it’s resulted in the equivalent of a quarter of the town signing a petition demanding that he step down.
But Charles Wasko, mayor of West York, says he has no plans of doing so. One of his post is a picture of a group of orangutans in a wheelbarrow with the caption, “Aww … moving day at the Whitehouse has finally arrived.” Yet another shows a dog covered in a towel, with the caption “Guide dog for a Muslim woman.” And yet another was a picture of Clint Eastwood holding a noose in the film “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly,” with the caption saying “Barry, this rope is for you.”
A petition demanding Wasko’s resignation has been signed by well over a thousand people. When confronted by a reporter, Wasko said he didn’t regret making those posts, and that he would defiantly attend a council meeting where a group said it would censure him.
He certainly has his supporters. “You tell them Chuck. Straight talker you are. There are way to many people that put on a fake facade,” said Facebook user Don Spera in a comment to an article on the controversy that Wasko shared.
But he definitely has plenty of opponents as well.
“Charles Wasko is NOT – and I mean N-O-T – a reflection of the people or his race,” wrote Michael Filipelli in response to one of his videos. “To the entire African American and Muslim community outraged and offended by the insensitive and sick ramblings of this pathetic excuse of a man please know that you are not alone in your outrage. I share in those feelings of disgust seeing this as well and there are many more who feel this way.”
