At the very least, the voters of Cooper City should be ashamed.
After all, they elected John Sims.
Sims is responsible for the following distasteful and disrespectful shot at our president. It is dripping with thinly-veiled anti-black and anti-Hispanic racism.
He posted it on Facebook and it was slipped to me by a source:
|Commissioner John SimsNovember 30|
Just wanted to let you know…today I received my 2013 Social Security Stimulus Package. It contained two tomato seeds, cornbread mix, two discount coupons to KFC, an ‘Obama Hope & Change’ bumper sticker, a prayer rug, a machine to blow smoke up my ass and a ‘Blame it on Bush’ poster for the front yard. The directions were in Spanish. Yours should arrive soon.

Skip Klauber Is it relevant that tomatoes won’t grow in S. Florida? And no one south of Ocala knows how to make decent cornbread. Mine came with a Mexican flag & a bill dating from the mid 1970’s.

I find it scary that 21 people “liked” the comment. But then again, millions are brain-washed daily into believing Fox News is real news.
Sims is a prime example of too many Republicans.
He’s an angry old white man who refuses to recognize that the world has changed.
Read that slap at Spanish speakers at the end of his comment and you’ll understand why the GOP has a problem getting the votes of Hispanics.
And blacks? Forget about it. What black would join a party that embraces the likes of Sims.
He continues to get invitations to speak at Republican events although he was embroiled in a similar incident of bigotry four years ago.
A picture of then-Mayor Debbie Eisinger appeared in a blog he owned with a Hitler mustache. Eisinger, a Jew, called it a hate crime, but nothing was done to Sims.
Democratic boss Mitch Ceasar was shown the recent comment. He had this to say:
“I would hope as a community we have made progress in racial relations and human relations. I find it unfortunate that an elected official would be so insensitive to publish remarks that are both radical and incredibly inappropriate.”
With these comments, Sims demonstrated that he is an embarrassment to Cooper City.
And one more thing.
The election is over. Obama won….and he won BIG in Broward County.
And you, John Sims, are part of the past.
