GOP official calls NFL players who kneel during the anthem ‘baboons’

Facebook posts written by a county GOP official in Pennsylvania are now coming to light, and it’s not looking good.

Carla Maloney, secretary of the Republican Committee of Beaver County, called NFL players who kneeled in protest during the national anthem “baboons” in a series of posts last year, according to a report from the Beaver County Times.

In a post to her personal Facebook page under the name “Carla Belich Fueller,” Malony slammed NFL players kneeling during the national anthem to protest police violence.

“Tired of these over paid ignorant blacks telling me what I should believe in,” she wrote on the page that has since been deleted. “I will tell you what I believe in and that is our Flag the National Anthem and America period end of story. You don’t like it here go to Africa see how you like it there. We are all Americans not African American not Hispanic American. WE ARE ALL AMERICAN.”

“Steelers are now just as bad as the rest of the over paid baboons,” she continued. “You respect your flag, country and our national anthem. How many men and women have lost limbs or died to protect this country and you baboons want respect,” she wrote.

“If you want respect you need to earn it and so far you haven’t. Stop watching, or going to a game and paying for over priced food, water and tickets. Let’s see how the baboons get paid when white people stop paying their salaries,” she continued.

Speaking to the Beaver County Times, Republican Committee of Beaver County chairman said Maloney made the posts before she was committee secretary.

“Those comments do not reflect the opinions of the Republican Party as a whole,” Kohser said.

According to Kohser, the matter is being investigated.

“I will address this with her in the proper manner,” he said. “Obviously that banter is not how I believe and is not how I think the Republican Party as a whole believes. I need to hear her side of the story and investigate it myself. Our Executive Committee would then take whatever action appropriate.”
