Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Thehill.com: “Democrat blasts Florida GOP official over 'cruel' Facebook posts”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

A Florida Democrat hammered a local GOP politician on Friday over Facebook posts that allegedly referred to his children as a "litter" and others that joked about using a snowplow to run over protesters.

Brevard Democratic Chair Stacey Patel told the Orlando Sentinel that conduct from Brevard County commissioner Bryan Lober (R) on Facebook was "unacceptable" after Lober wrote that it would be acceptable for Patel to get an abortion because her "litter" of children would supposedly raised to not have a work ethic.

“I’m not typically a big abortion proponent but in Patel’s case, I might look the other way as I can only imagine what a scourge of humanity (and on our economy) her offspring would prove to be given that her litter would likely be raised with an entitlement mentality, zero work ethic and taught the hypocritically racist and sexist position that the white man is evil,” Lober wrote, according to the Sentinel.

Patel responded, telling the Sentinel: “It is entirely inappropriate to dehumanize one’s political adversary. To refer to my potential children as a ‘litter” and a ‘scourge on humanity’ is truly beyond the pale.”

In other comments highlighted by the newspaper on a public Brevard County Facebook group, the Republican commissioner appeared to join in with other Republicans in joking about running over left-leaning protesters with vehicles or, in Lober's case, a snowplow.
