SOMEONE IS IN TROUBLE OVER THIS FACEBOOK POST

Barry West, a county commissioner in Coffee County, Tenn., is facing backlash after he posted a photo of a man aiming what appears to be a double-barreled shotgun with the caption, “How to wink at a Muslim” above it.

The Facebook post has since ignited a good deal of outrage. West responded to his critics by claiming he meant for it to be humorous. The official later deleted the post but did not issue an apology, WSMV-TV reports.

“I thought it was humorous,” West told The Tullahoma News, adding that he is “prejudiced against anyone who’s trying to tear down this country.”

No, it's not funny at all. It's very serious. Trouble is, people are getting upset because they know it's true and what the hidden message is really about.

I didn't get a laugh out of it, but that is exactly how I feel about Muslim/Islamic terrorist. Kill them all before they kill all of us.

By the way I am thinking you are a Democrat.

Actually 4:42, I'm a republican and have voted republican since Reagan's first election. I just think that the Republican Party has lost a lot of civility since the Reagan years.

Too late to tell him not to lower himself to their standards.

What ever happened to Matthew 7:12?
"So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you"

This image is a disgrace for Americans and Christians in the same way that Iranian extremists burning American flags is a disgrace for Iranians and Muslims.

>>> I just think that the Republican Party has lost a lot of civility since the Reagan years.<<< I hate to be the one to tell you this 5:55, but the entire world has lost a lot of civility since the Reagan years. The democrats have become absolutely vicious gutter-trash. To single out Republicans for your disapproval is mildly silly.

Of course you didn't. You have to be smarter than the message.

I doubt many, if any, Iranians are disgraced. The same is true for most Americans. Muslims are killing people, Americans, every day. You want us to be disgraced for fighting back and defending ourselves and our country?

That is what allows them to continue. Some of you are so worried about offending them, and others, that they can continue, and enlarge upon, their killings, plots and conspiracies. Screw them, and screw people like you.

They offend me every time one of their bombs go off. They offend me every time they behead someone. They offend me when they use their religion as an excuse and a reason to kill infidels. (Americans who are not Islamic are infidels).

I could not care less if they are offended by a shotgun pointing at them, real or parodied. It should not only be pointed at them, but the trigger should be pulled as well.

YOU might as well buy a quran and start your trek to mecca. YOU sound like you are ready to face east and pray to allah 3x a day.

I hope YOU and others like you meet your 72 virgins very soon.

This is the peace love and dope generation that is in charge. It is the indoctrination of our Children in Public schools and college to see the liberal progressive light. One day when liberals get their way we will all be singing cum bi ya in some commune smoking dope while our Country is over run by illegal criminal aliens and Muslim terrorists. The wusafication of America.

You my dear friend is what we call a RINO. Oh, and I do agree with 10:25, there is nothing more uncivilized and vicious than a democrat with power.

Ron you are exactly right and you were growing up around that same era in the 60/70's so you should know. I didn't like you in your previous profession because you were to strict, but I value you with your values and beliefs. Now that you are away from that profession I believe you and I could be friends.
