Two Georgia Deputies Fired For Online Comments That Are Actually Racist

Two deputies were fired after their racist comments came to light.

Griffin, GA – Two Georgia county sheriff’s department employees were fired Aug. 6 after social media posts they made came to light that showed they expressed support for Adolph Hitler and American neo-Nazi ideology.

Spalding County Sheriff's Office detention officers Howard Costner and Jesse Jones were fired after a group called Atlanta Antifascists published comments the two men made on YouTube, Facebook and other online forums, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Costner allegedly posted that he thought racism was normal and “not a bad thing” and expressed admiration for George Rockwell, the founder of the American Nazi Party.

“I’ll say this I am extremely right winged and I view racism as normal,” he said on a YouTube video last year, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “Just read the definition of racism and it’s not a bad thing. That’s my own belief though. I went from being a libertarian Conservative to more Authoritarian.”

Jones had an online profile on a gaming platform called “Steam” that stated, “Hitler did nothing wrong.”

Jones had also allegedly connected on Steam with exremist profiles, including a profile that had a profile picture of Dylann Roof. In 2015, Roof was convicted of the racially-motivated terrorist attack on black church members in Charleston, South Carolina, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

“Both of these gentlemen are no longer employed by the Spalding County Sheriff’s Office based on some information that came to light today,” Sheriff Darrell Dix said, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “It doesn’t fit what we want to represent to the community and what we want to represent as an agency.”

Costner and Jones had been with the sheriff’s office less than a year.

Sheriff Dix said neither man did anything on the job to reveal their extremist viewpoints.

Costner had minor disciplinary problems, according to Sheriff Dix.

“No use of force, nothing where there were claims of him violating people’s civil rights or mistreating (people),” Sheriff Dix said, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Many US citizens don't know nothing about the 3rd Reich, Hitler and National Socialism. Evidently, that ideology was SOCIALISM. This has nothing to do with right ideology but with left.... actually the American Liberals should appreciate National Socialism because it corresponds to their own politics.... but as they are deeply depraved they hypocritically denounce the so-called Nazis as right people or extremists. By the way, Franklin D. Roosevelts "spiritual brother" British war criminal Winston Churchill explicitly had nothing against National Socialism. Already some years before setting up and initiating WWII against the 3rd Reich by taking advantage of Polish stupidity and their hate against the Germans he emphasized mass murdering the German Volk (German people) as well as war criminal Roosevelt carried out by killing more than 1 Million German prisoners of war in the RHEINWIESEN camps and intentionally starving a few Million Germans to death AFTER 1945. Churchill hated the Germans but he had no problem with National Socialism. Interesting isn't?

“Both of these gentlemen are no longer employed...” Since when are bigots considered “gentlemen”? That sentence alone speaks volumes.
