I guess someone thought that in The Age of _____ you could get away with hate and still keep your job.
Not so much.
Hunter Hatcher, an outreach coordinator in Arkansas Treasurer Dennis Milligan's office, resigned after posting insulting things online about women and The Gays. A member of the Arkansas National Guard, Hatcher voluntarily resigned, saying:
"It is my intent to focus on my military service to my country. I would like to offer my sincere apologies to all who were offended by my egregious remarks, as it was not becoming of a Soldier. I am very contrite but will continue to focus on my mission with the Army."
And this all came about because Hatcher Tweeted this after _____’s inauguration:
"Y'all in _____'s America now! Time to flick that chip off ya shoulder and quit being so offended. Gay jokes are back on ya bunch of homos."
And if that wasn’t enough, this tool went on Facebook to post:
"If all these women are at the Capitol, who's making lunch? ... I love Subway cause I can tell a woman to make me a sandwich and she does it with a smile on her face. I wish all women had that Subway work ethic. ... Don't get equal, get to cooking woman, get equal on your own time."
Hatcher is now unavailable to speak, something he might have considered before going online with his stupidity.
Look, the times may be changing, for now, in America, but we are still a country where this kind of hate, even when Hatcher tries to mask it as a joke, is not acceptable.
Hatcher’s Twitter account has since gone private and his Facebook account no longer exists.
So, Hunter Hatcher:
And watch your step in the military because one of your supervisors might be gay ... or a woman ... or a gay woman.
