Unhinged TN Mayor: ‘Our Muslim President’ Preempted Charlie Brown ‘On Purpose’

December 4, 2009

(ChattahBox)— On Tuesday, President Obama addressed the nation from West Point to explain his decision to deploy 30,000 additional troops to Afghanistan. It was an important and historic speech, by the Commander-in-Chief of US Armed Forces, at a time when our county is at war. But Russell Wiseman, the Republican Mayor of Arlington, Tennessee didn’t care about the war in Afghanistan or about our national security.

When he turned on his TV, expecting to see “A Charlie Brown Christmas,” and instead was subjected to the spectacle of our African American “Muslim” President, Wiseman became enraged and went straight to his Facebook page to post a disturbing racist rant attacking President Obama.

Wiseman’s Facebook’s post was made available to the Commercial Appeal newspaper. Although Wiseman’s Facebook page was restricted to his “friends list,” the man has 1,600 “friends.”

The small town Southern mayor attacked Obama as a Muslim and accused him of scheduling his speech at the same time as the Christian Charlie Brown special on purpose:

Ok, so, this is total crap, we sit the kids down to watch ‘The Charlie Brown Christmas Special’ and our muslim president is there, what a load…..try to convince me that wasn’t done on purpose. Ask the man if he believes that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and he will give you a 10 minute disertation (sic) about it….w…hen the answer should simply be ‘yes’….”

Wiseman’s rant went on at length, talking about Obama’s “Muslim” supporters and invoking blatant racism saying, that if only landowners were allowed to vote, Obama would not have been elected:

“…you obama people need to move to a muslim country…oh wait, that’s America….pitiful.”

“you know, our forefathers had it written in the original Constitution that ONLY property owners could vote, if that has stayed in there, things would be different……..”

When contacted about his racist and bigoted attack on President Obama, Wiseman remained unapologetic and defiant. “It’s ridiculous for someone to send my Facebook post,” Wiseman said. “You guys are trying to make a mountain out of a molehill.”

A Charlie Brown Christmas will be shown on December 15.

The photo of Wiseman was taken by the Commercial Appeal last year, with this text: “Arlington Mayor Russell Wiseman stands in front of the Arlington Welcome sign on U.S. Highway 64 as motorists speed by. Mayor Wiseman hopes to bring some attention to the Arlington city limits in order to clear up the confusion about where Arlington is.”

Wiseman is a second term mayor of the small Tennessee town in Shelby County, with a population of about 10,000. He’s a local banker and he belongs to the Sycamore View Church of Christ in Memphis.

What a load!
