County officials in Washington state are facing criticism after an employee posted a meme — declaring “ALL LIVES SPLATTER” and depicting a car running over people — on a government Facebook page.
“I don’t wish harm on anyone… but protesters don’t belong in the road,” - reads the text on an image posted Monday to the Facebook page for Chelan County Emergency Management. “Nobody cares about your protest,” the meme continued. “Keep your ass out of the road.”
Pay attention at the group the picture was taken from: “Libtards; ya gotta love ’em!”
Of course, the post caused outrage.
It isn’t clear exactly how long the post remained publicly visible before it was removed. On Monday afternoon, Chelan County Sheriff Brian Burnett released a statement apologizing for the “inappropriate” post. The apology noted that the meme had been shared to the emergency management page by a “non-commissioned employee” who had received it on a personal account first. Very convenient, right?
Burnett stressed that the post did not reflect the views of the sheriff’s office. Though, the statement did not address whether the employee who shared the meme would face any discipline.
How many times we have to repeat that such memes aren’t funny at all? Just accept it, it isn't funny...At all.
