Republican state Rep. Michael Speciale of North Carolina shared an image on Facebook that spurred some negative feedback. The image refers to President Barack Obama as an “Islamic son of a bitch.”

The image said:

Look you Islamic son of a bitch, unless you give all your land back to the native Indians, don’t pretend to lecture Israelis about our borders when you can’t control your own. . . Are you going to do something about ISIS or should Israel show you how it’s done because you are too much of a coward and the piss poor excuse for an American president in your Great Nation’s history.

The image struck a negative chord, even with Speciale’s supporters. One commenter said:

Michael—your position requires dignity and cooperation over this kind of rant. . .I was thinking of voting for you next term ~~~ BUT now you can forget it for bringing such shame to your district.


Remaining stubborn, Speciale responded to his own post, saying:

I find it interesting how many liberals pretend that they are offended by this post, yet they have no problem with Obama destroying the very fabric of this nation. These same folks didn’t appear fazed when some of the most vitriolic garbage was being spewed by their fellow liberals at President Bush! It must also be a slow news day at WNCT and The News and Observer, since they think this is a story today. Obama will end up as the worst president in history, and it will be a result of his performance, and none of my Facebook posts can be blamed!
