So it stands to reason that Clint McCance shouldn’t be employed by anyone nor a member of any school board anywhere for any reason. That he resigned after his utterly vile remarks also just stands to reason. Hatemongers ought never be allowed contact with the public. They are a cancerous poison.
The Arkansas school board member whose homophobic rants on Facebook drew widespread condemnation announced he was resigning on Thursday’s “AC360.” Anderson Cooper told viewers that Clint McCance, a member of the Midland School District board in Arkansas, contacted him to set up an interview after his anti-gay Facebook posts sparked a wave of outrage. The posts, which emerged on Wednesday, were written in response to the “Wear Purple Day” that was launched to show solidarity with gay youth in the wake of a recent string of suicides. In one post, McCance protested the idea behind the initiative. “They want me to wear purple because five queers committed suicide,” he wrote. “The only way I’m wearing for them is if they all commit suicide. I can’t believe the people of this world have gotten this stupid.
I can’t believe someone in Arkansas (or on the planet) is that totally depraved. I’ve heard a lot of despicable things in my 50 years but that’s pretty much right at the top of the list. Good riddance to him. Let’s hope he’s never heard from again. Obscurity is his just desserts.
