A student at the University of Texas is under fire over controversial remarks made over the weekend via her Twitter page.
Cassandra Wright, president of the University of Texas College Republicans, took to her Twitter page on Sunday afternoon to make a controversial statement regarding U.S. President Barack Obama.
“My president is black, he snorts a lot of crack. Holla. #2012 #Obama,” the young student wrote.
The statement from the Texas University student is just one of several incendiary comments made by Republican supporters from the group in recent months.
Prior to Ms. Wright's comment, the Republican student group faced another social networking ordeal with its former president, Lauren Pierce. Pierce resigned from her position due to comments she posted on Twitter, saying that it would be tempting to shoot the president.
The Twitter comment followed a November incident in which a man used a rifle to shoot the White House.
Meanwhile, another Republican supporter has made headlines this week over comments directed at Obama.
Jules Mason, an avid Ron Paul supporter, took to Facebook to post a comment that has left many in disbelief.
“Assassinate the f------ n----- and his monkey children,” Mason commented below a wall post on the popular social networking site.
The controversial comment from the former candidate for the Carson, Ca. city council came following a post in which Mason describes his belief that the government has eroded our constitutional rights with the National Defense Authorization Act.
“If the government is allowed to use force on us while it erodes our constitutional protections, it MUST be countered with assassinations onto them and their children, and all others in uniform who directly protect the state,” he wrote.
“We must demonstrate that such treason will become too expensive for them to support. This is the only way,” he added.
The NDAA easily passed in both houses of Congress and despite Obama’s threat to veto the Act, he actually signed it into law. The act gives the military a legally codified role in domestic terrorism cases, but many have raised concerns that the demands will not stop with the role allocated to the military in the act, particularly if another attack like 9/11 happens on U.S. soil.
