This Woman Lost Her Job Over What She Said About Obama
The Blaze ^ | November 9, 2012 | by Jason Howerton

The message got the attention of the Secret Service and her employer, Cold Stone Creamery. She was promptly fired and the company spent much of Thursday responding to angry tweets about the woman’s post,” FOX40 reports.

“This employee is no longer w/the (sic) company & her disgraceful and completely unacceptable comments do not reflect our views,” the company tweeted via its official Twitter account.

Helms had deleted her post and deactivated her Facebook account, but the damage was done. What may be even more disturbing than her post, is the fact that she initially didn’t appear to be remorseful at all.

“I don’t understand what I did wrong,” she told FOX40.

However, she later admitted that what she said was “wrong.” Helms also argued that she is not a racist and said she doesn’t really want Obama to be assassinated because, after all, he “does have two kids.”

“I think I was just really upset, and (the post) just kind of came out,” Helms said.

An outrageous Facebook post, calling President Barack Obama “the n***er” and referencing his assassination, has cost a California women her job and reputation after the disgusting message went viral.

Denise Helms, of Turlock, Calif., reportedly set the post to “private” on her Facebook page, but someone snapped an image and put it on Twitter.

She deserved what she got for that disgusting post!

Now its time to apply the same standards to the haters on the left, who are much more numerous I fear.

Ok, I’ll say it. She’s a racist idiot. Hate obama because he’s an incompetent marxist tool, not because he happens to be black. He’d be just as worthless if he was white. Like Jimmy Carter, for example.

I have often thought that iff Obama were white, he probably would have been assasinated.

Face book? Isn’t that a part of muslims media corporation?

The Secret Service doesn’t have a sense of humor about these things.

How did her employer get involved though? If I had an employee that brought negative attention to my business, I’d can her too.

It was bad, but I heard just as bad about Bush for years. Remember listening to morning drive time radio in Portland, OR where the DJ’s went back and forth using obscenities and saying he should be killed. No big.

Not saying what she said was right, buuuuuuuttt...why is it that everyone goes insane with this shit, posted by a woman who was clearly distraught on FACEBOOK, where I have certainly seen worse than this or on DailyKos and Bill “the smirking midget” Maher can call Sarah Palin a C***T on a nationally televised cable show and nothing? I mean ... NOTHING happens?

You don’t think the press is trying to inflame any particular voting block, do you?

She is wrong but what about all the racist Black tweets from people saying they would assinate Romney? Never read about that drawing the secret service’s attention.
