Wisconsin Official Fired Over Hateful Racism

By: JadetheCreator

An official appointed by Gov. Scott Walker (R-Wis.) was promptly fired on Thursday after comparing undocumented immigrants to the devil in a Facebook comment.

“You may see Jesus when you look at them. I see Satan,” he wrote. “And if they don’t like it here, hey, the door they came through to get here swings both ways.”

According to Bice, Krieser was fired less than two hours after Walker’s office was informed of the comments. Walker spokesman Tom Evenson said in a statement that the comments were “repugnant” and “completely unacceptable.” It all started when Democratic state Rep. Gordon Hintz posted a photo of a sticker he found for sale in a local gas station which read, “USA Illegal Immigrant Hunting Permit — No Bag Limit — Tagging Not Required.”

This isn’t Krieser’s first brush with controversy. In 2011, he caused a stir when he issued a memo to Department of Motor Vehicle employees in the state, advising them to not volunteer information about obtaining free voter identification cards. The memo was widely condemned by Democratic lawmakers in the state.
