Arkansas Firefighter: Have Snipers Shoot Protesting Players
September 28, 2017

An Arkansas volunteer firefighter, John Marotti was fired from the Earle Fire Department for calling for the assassination of NFL players as well as anyone who supports them for protesting during the National Anthem on Facebook.

Marotti's disgusting Facebook rant contained violent passages like this, "Trump should post snipers at the game and each player that takes a knee or sits in the lockerroom should b shot in the head."

He continued, "As for the rest of you obama lovin snowflakes out here protesting and makin idiots out of urselves u should b shot on sight to if u disagree with me..."


WREG reports, "The Earle Fire Department is a volunteer service. Firefighters are paid by the call."

This is the second report in a week that has a volunteer firefighter being fired over violent racist rhetoric.

A volunteer Fire Chief from the Muse Fire Department in Cecil Township was fired for tweeting about the Pittsburgh Steelers head coach, "Tomlin just added himself to the list of no-good ni**ers. Yes I said it."

The amount of racist violence that is being spewed by Trump and his rabid supporters is frightening. I'm getting very nervous about what might transpire if Trump keeps using his kind of over-the-top jingoism to infuriate his followers.

Make America White Again sure is energizing Trump's base.
