Michael Selyem, the Deputy District Attorney in San Bernardino County, California who is responsible for leading a gang prosecution team, has a history of offensive social media posts that have led to calls for his resignation.
Mike Ramos, the outgoing District Attorney told The Sun Friday that “We have been made aware of the negative comments and they do not represent the views of the District Attorney’s Office. Since this is a personal matter I cannot comment any further,” Newsweek reports.
Deputy District Attorney Michael Selyem, who joined the D.A.’s Office 12 years ago, targeted outspoken U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters, former first lady Michelle Obama, Mexican immigrants and the victim of a police shooting in Facebook and Instagram posts labeled by one critic as “hateful rhetoric.”
“Being a loud-mouthed c#nt in the ghetto you would think someone would have shot this bitch by now …”
Selyem also posted a doctored picture of Michelle Obama holding a sign saying, “Trump grabbed my penis.”
Selyem, a 50-year-old resident of Placentia, is the lead attorney in a unit tasked with cracking down on criminal gang activity that surged as members moved inland from Los Angeles County in search of more affordable housing. Many of those gangs are predominantly Latino. One of Selyem’s posts showed a man in a giant sombrero with the words, “Mexican word of the day: Hide.”
“It is disgusting that a public official sworn to protect the public would have these ugly viewpoints,” said Zeke Hernandez, president of the Santa Ana League of United Latin American Citizens No. 147. “The district attorney needs to take any and all appropriate action to let the public know that it does not agree with Selyem’s hateful rhetoric.”
The democratic party and their safe places, safe zones and sanctuary cities all demanding abolishing ICE and open borders, this political correctness is directed to shut down and make people afraid to speak the truth.
What the DA said was blunt and to some, vulgar in his social media comments, how far do they think they can push before people start pushing back?
Were his comments blunt truth or should he be fired for his comments?
