State GOP Chairman Matt Moore announced that while candidate Anthony Culler won the primary, his Facebook comments do not represent the state.
'Most people learned in kindergarten not to call other people names,' Moore said, according to Talking Points Memo. 'Our party believes in the conservative definition of marriage, but we also believe in loving our neighbors and treating them with respect. Mr. Culler's desperate attention seeking in no way represents the good, decent South Carolinians across our state,' Moore continued.
In a 14 October Facebook post, Culler railed against marriage equality. 'Same-sex couples that seek to destroy our way of life and the institution of marriage are NOT cute and cuddly but rather (for those of you that are old enough to remember the movie), Gremlins that will only destroy our way of life.'
Before Moore's announcement Culler posted a Facebook video, doubling down on his theory. 'They're Gremlins,' Culler insists. 'They're these creatures that are so destructive.' In another Facebook post, the candidate promises a statement about being dropped by his party. 'I'll prepare a response to the traitorous comments made by Chairman Matt Moore of the South Carolina Republican Party.'

According to Dagbladet, he allegedly shouted at one of the students: “Fag number one, you can stand over here.”
The principal told the paper: “When I found out what the photographer said, I felt that this required immediate action.
“He did not respect our values and offended a student. As an adult, you must think about what you say to students.”
The man, who taught photography at the school, was summoned to the principal as the boy phoned his parents.
On a later meeting on the same day alongside the photography company’s CEO, the principal fired the teacher on the spot.
The CEO said: “He apologized to me but it did not help. I decided he must be let go immediately, which he understood.
“He broke the company’s rules by speaking inappropriately. We can only apologize to the student involved. The matter is now settled.”
And that is how it's done. Kudos to this Swedish school!

Jefferson County Missouri Recorder of Deeds Debbie Dunnegan, up for reelection as Recorder of Deeds this November, posed this question on her Facebook page:
Clearly, Ms. Dunnegan has a different version of the Constitution from the rest of us, since the military code of conduct would define this as an act of sedition with penalties of fines and up ten years in prison.
Of course Ms. Dunnegan, once realizing this, added this statement to her Facebook page:
"Something innocent and simple got twisted into a disaster because it’s an election. I meant no ill intent toward the president. I meant no ill intent toward anybody."
Then again Deb's, you still refuse to removed this from your Facebook page and I'm pretty sure it's still seditious even if you make your Facebook page private.
