Aaron Schock's Staffer Resigns To Spend More Time Being Racist Jerk On Facebook

News

On Thursday, Think Progress posted a series of Facebook posts from Benjamin Cole, dreamy non-gay wingnut Aaron Schock's press secretary or spokesman or communications director or senior aide or senior communications aide spokesdirector or whatever his title is -- nobody seems to know for sure, wow, Schock and his staff sure like secrets, HUH?

Cole was being really gross and racist about loud people in his neighborhood who happened to be black people, saying they were like escaped animals from the National Zoo engaging in "mating rituals" out in the street near his house. He even added the hashtag #gentrifynow and #gentrifytoday in case his complaints were too subtle.

He also had some really nice things to say about President Obama, like how "they should build a mosque on the White House grounds" because "I just think it would be nice for the president to have his own house of worship, since he's not been able to find one suitable in DC since 2004 when he moved here."

This did not go over well with, um, anyone, so now Benjamin The Dumb is being exiled to the land of families and more time spent with them:

In a statement to the Peoria Journal Star, the Illinois GOP congressman called the remarks by communications aide Benjamin Cole "inexcusable and offensive."

"I would expect better from any member of my team," Schock added. "Upon learning about them I met with Mr. Cole and he offered his resignation which I have accepted."

Right, so that's gross. And we have to take one of those rare Wonkette moments to say that Aaron Schock (Aaron Schock Aaron Schock) did the Right Thing by "accepting" Cole's resignation, though he probably should have canned him earlier this week anyway, since old Benjamin is the completely inept communications guy who, upon being asked about Aaron Schock's Downton Gay-bbey themed office, queened out like "NO NO NO NO NO, you can't see it!", when a normal person in that position would be like, "sure, come on in, would you like some SCONES while you look at these SCONCES?"

But apparently Benjamin Cole is not a fan of giving office tours OR The Blacks, so see ya later, enjoy not giving tours to your white family and stuff. Now Aaron will have to get on Grindr and find himself a nice new press secretary aide director whatever to deal with the Downton Abbey office and the gay rumors and putting Aaron's shirtless selfies on Instagram. You know, Congress Stuff.

Hopefully, we can continue this trend of reporting on Aaron Schock EVERY DAY NOW tomorrow morning, I dunno, maybe he could make some sort of big announcement or something. Your Wonkette is listening, Aaron! Until then, Aaron Schock Aaron Schock Aaron Schock, the end.

Yeah, that's my daughter and I made this

Guys!

Last

month

was

crazy!

First, NASA sent its last message to the Mars Opportunity rover! THEN scientists said that all the insects are dying but not the human-looking ones in the GOP. As if THAT wasn't enough, some brave pendejos with grandes cojones are going to try and get seafloor creatures from under a giant ice shelf in the ANTARCTIC!

So, yeah, all three of those stories happened last month. Let's cover each in a science lightning round.

Education Secretary Betsy DeVos is terrible at her job. Her objectives and overall mission are evil, but if it's any consolation she can't effectively implement them. After buying her Cabinet position at Sotheby's, DeVos has spent the past two years trying to roll back Obama-era policies designed to protect and actually educate students. Unfortunately for her evil schemes, federal courts keep smacking down her slimy efforts. It's getting embarrassing.

DeVos recently had to cancel $150 million in student loan debt after courts said her attempts to stop the "borrow defense" regulations from taking effect were in fact illegal. Last week, she was forced to instruct colleges to follow the Obama rule barring mandatory arbitration agreements. She got kicked in the teeth earlier this month when a federal judge ruled she'd acted illegally ... again. This time, DeVos tried to delay an Obama-era guideline that required states to address racial disparities in their special education programs. Judge Tanya S. Chutkan called the delay "arbitrary" and "capricious."

The rule, drafted under the Individuals With Disabilities Education Act, would require states to identify districts with "significant disproportionality" in the number of minority students channeled into special education services, segregated in restrictive classroom settings or disciplined.

OK, so what was the "education" secretary's issue with this rule? We want to imagine there's some rationale we're not seeing and DeVos is more than just some yacht-collecting monster.
