It’s time for your Thursday Puerto Rico Roundup! What’s going on in that little island that we own or whatever this week? Well, they’ve got a racist Twitter lady type situation going down. Watch out! And how about that, she’s in politics. Steel yourselves: “An adviser to Puerto Rico’s most powerful female lawmaker faced calls to resign on Wednesday after she sent a tweet to President Barack Obama urging him to buy the first lady a double-banana sundae and take her to Kenya.” What’s the problem? That sounds like a great anniversary trip itinerary.
Wait, she suggested a sundae from Burger King? Oh dear, perhaps she was addressing the President in bad faith:
Heidi Wys sent the tweet last week shortly after Obama tweeted that Michelle Obama’s birthday was coming up.
“Who cares?” Wys wrote in response. “Take her to Burger King, buy her a sundae with double banana, take her to your homeland, Kenya!”
Apparently she just tweets racist nonsense at the President on Twitter all the time, doesn’t care who sees it:
It is not the first time that Wys has sent tweets about Obama.
In response to a July 30 tweet by a Puerto Rico online newspaper, Wys urged reporters to follow an investigation to probe the authenticity of Obama’s birth certificate. [...]
“I fight Obama with all the strength in my heart and passion as a descendant of germans!!” she wrote on July 30.
On June 18, she sent another tweet to Obama in response to a general invitation to have dinner with the President.
“Wah! Wah! I feel like vomiting! Dinner with a guy borned in Kenya and claims he was borned in Hawaii!” she wrote, with some misspellings.
But! But! She can prove that she’s not racist. See, she’d been expecting some PC nanny baby uproar like this to emerge and took the necessary precaution as outlined in Section 13 of John Derbyshire’s “The Talk” — “gain an amulet against potentially career-destroying accusations of prejudice.” Does she have a black friend, then? Pfft, child’s play. She’s got the heavy-duty industrial amulet shit here:
Wys, who is white, also said in another tweet that she is not racist and that her favorite nieces are black, but added that she does not support Obama.
