Sheriff apologizes for meme on Facebook page

Sheriff apologizes for meme on Facebook page”

Wenatchee - The sheriff in Central Washington's Chelan County has apologized after a county emergency worker posted a meme to the county's Facebook account showing protesters being rammed by a vehicle.

"Nobody cares about your protest", the image said. "Get your [expletive] out of the road".

The agency, whose stated mission is to "minimize loss of life and personal injury, damage to property and the environment related to disasters which may be natural or man-made", shared the post from the Facebook page "Libtards; ya gotta love 'em!".

"The employee accidentally "shared" the post onto the Emergency Management's Facebook page", Burnett wrote in a press release.

Burnett said the employee apparently received the post from Libtards and meant to share it onto the employee's personal page. "I just did it too fast or something".

The Chelan County Emergency Management Office is under scrutiny today for a social media post.

As soon as it was discovered, the post was taken down, Chelan County Sheriff Brian Burnett said.

Burnett told The Spokesman-Review that officials would be looking into the incident, but didn't say whether the employee responsible would be disciplined.

The department issued an apology, stating; "This post does not reflect the views of the Sheriff's Office", calling the meme bad and inappropriate.

Aside from asking for the employee to be fired, some online commenters said they are appalled that a government employee would hold such opinions toward protesters and some have said they agree that protesters shouldn't block roads.
