The only solution to living in a country where liberals pursue equal rights for all Americans is to “kill the problem out,” an Alabama mayor wrote last week in now-deleted comments on Facebook.
According to WBRC FOX6 News, Carbon Hill mayor Mark Chambers made the comment to a Facebook friend under a post Chambers made saying, “We live in a society where homosexuals lecture us on morals, transvestites lecture us on human biology, baby killers lecture us on human rights and socialists lecture us on economics.”
Chambers’ friend commented: "By giving the minority more rights than the majority. I hate to think of the country my grandkids will live in unless somehow we change and I think that will take a revolution.”
And the mayor replied: “The only way to change it would be to kill the problem out. I know it’s bad to say but without killing them out there’s no way to fix it.”
That an elected official called for the extermination of fellow Americans — and his initial post disparaging the LGBT community, along with other liberals — did not set well with many of Chambers’ constituents.
Reached for comment on Monday regarding his posts, Chambers initially told WBRC FOX 6 News that he was not the author of the post, saying, “I don’t think I posted that. I think that’s somebody else’s post” and indicating someone else might be using his identity on Facebook.
But the local news station said Chambers called back within minutes of the first conversation to admit the post was his and it was being taken out of context. The mayor — who has led the small town of 2,000 residents since 2014 — also indicated he mistakenly believed he was communicating privately with his Facebook friend when he made the “kill the problem out” comment.
After making disparaging remarks about immigrants during the second phone call, Chambers defended his social media posts, insisting, he “never said anything about killing out gays or anything like that.”
The mayor has since changed his Facebook profile to private.
