The embattled Executive Director of the Pioneer Museum in Sweetwater submitted her resignation as of 5 p.m. Friday after posting Republican voters should die on Facebook on election day. According to a statement from the president of the board of directors of the museum, Melonnie Hicks submitted her resignation Friday. As we reported earlier, Hicks posted "I hope every single one of you pieces of s... that votes republican, dies today." The post went viral sparking a huge controversy.

Comments:

Interestingly, some local conservatives were arguing that she should not be fired, because she was a very good museum director and also, conservatives should not join the Left in its cancel culture/one strike and you're out campaign. imho, this woman's demise is the direct result of the fire stoked by the Left against non-progressives. Common sense and human decency seem to have been abandoned by tens of millions of Americans.

OP- that is just sad that any conservative would support someone that would wish on death on people who do not agree with them.

If you take my tax dollars as salary and then declare that you hate my guts and wish I would die, then yes, you should not be able to keep your taxpayer-funded job. Conservatives need to get into the mud and fight like liberals do.

I am all for not acting like the left and their cancel culture but this wishing death on people who simply don't agree politically is over the top. I am a trustee of our local historical society and museum property. Like most local museums, we are always short of funds and her nasty comment probably turned off donors to this one. A remarkably stupid thing for her to put on social media and damage the museum this way. Resignation was the right way for her to go.

Chuck Schumer is a person high in our government who issued a personal threat to Gorsich and Kavenaugh. In doing so he set a poor example that could result in some person trying to carry it out. This is the action of lowlife and should result in his impeachment. Hick is in local government but her posting was in the gutter. Good riddance!

It is astonishing and repulsive that a person with a position like this feels she has the right to go on social media and say things like this. It would be disturbing just to know she feels this way but to feel it is OK to shout your insanity from the rooftops is really troubling. The museum should still issue a statement that they repudiate anyone making such statements and that, had she not resigned, they would have required her resignation. We need to start sending a message to people that while you can say what you want and generally, government cannot trouble you, there still can be massive social consequences. Calling for people's death is NOT OK!

Freedom of speech does not mean speech without consequences. She can be a hate-filled troll all she wants, but needs to recognize that it might limit her employment opportunities. Most employers don't want the notoriety that trolls bring with them.

If you want to blow off steam and post some really hatefully and evil statements, there are plenty of sites on the Internet that you can use the anonymous name of your choice and knock yourself out. If you are such a sick puppy that you need to do that to feel good about yourself, have at it. Ultimately, it doesn't hurt anyone else -- just your own soul. But to post garbage like she did under her real name shows she is not only evil but also incredibly stupid. Sadly, I'm sure there is some lie-beral city or organization ready to award her with a job!!!! She will make the perfect lie-beral bureaucrat!!!!!!

What makes apparently intelligent people say such stupid things? Do they think social media insulates them from the consequences? Would they say such things outside of social media, in person and out loud? I doubt it. You’d think they’d learn from the many episodes that haven’t ended well for the clever poster who wishes death and misfortune on strangers. But the key word is think, which they don’t do — it’s all about feeling, not thinking. The dopamine hit from posting a zinger on Facebook, even and maybe especially a vicious one, is all that seems to matter in the moment.

Seriously sick coronavirus patients in New York state’s largest hospital system are being given massive doses of vitamin C — based on promising reports that it’s helped people in hard-hit China, The Post has learned. Dr. Andrew G. Weber, a pulmonologist and critical-care specialist affiliated with two Northwell Health facilities on Long Island, said his intensive-care patients with the coronavirus immediately receive 1,500 milligrams of intravenous vitamin C. Identical amounts of the powerful antioxidant are then re-administered three or four times a day, he said.

Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg's campaign for president was doomed from the get-go. Not only did he jump into the race later than the other 2020 Democratic candidates, but his campaign decided to skip the Iowa Caucuses, New Hampshire Primary, Nevada Caucuses and South Carolina Primary. Instead, Bloomberg's team made a conscious decision to focus on Super Tuesday, the day when the most delegates were up for grabs. Despite spending more than $500 million dollars on an aggressive ad campaign, the mayor's results were abysmal. He won American Samoa, which garnered a whopping five delegates. The remaining delegate from the territory went to Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI).

Michael Bloomberg’s presidential campaign isn’t ­going as planned. He was a piñata in his first two ­debates and his decision to skip the four early states looks dicey as polls show him trailing in crucial Super Tuesday contests. Some of these headwinds were predictable, which is why Bloomberg hesitated to join the race. ­Until the moment he started running, he was telling friends there was no place for him in the Democratic Party. He may have been right, but Bloomberg was dead wrong in the way he tried to improve his odds.

Viewers lashed into CBS for allowing Bloomberg to buy advertising slots during the first two debate commercial breaks, calling it “incompetence at best, corruption at worst.” “What kind of rule allows the candidates to advertise *during* the debate?

Chutzpah is a Yiddish word meaning incredible audacity. The most famous example is the man who murders both his parents and then throws himself on the mercy of the court because he’s an orphan. Neither Prince Harry nor Meghan Markle is Jewish, and it’s doubtful if they even know the meaning of the word “chutzpah,” but they’ve sure got it – and Trump was not amused. One of the things that was immediately obvious about Meghan Markle was that she was “woke.” That is, in keeping with her “B” level actress status, she eagerly copied all the political shibboleths of the big Leftist stars

"Do you think there is blood on the president's hands considering the slow response?" Todd asked. "Or is that too harsh of a criticism?"

Though the interview was very short, the two journalists managed to fit in as much Trump-bashing as they could. Karl bemoaned to Stephanopoulos that the president was the same man now as he was in 2016, and his “mental illness” was being spun as a good leadership quality, by his own staff.

Poll of the week: A new ABC News/Washington Post poll finds that President Donald Trump's approval rating among all adults in 48%, while his disapproval rating is 46%. Trump scores a very similar 49% approval rating and 47% disapproval rating with registered voters. What's the point: There's no doubt now that Trump is experiencing a bump in his popularity following his response to the coronavirus pandemic. The ABC News/Washington Post poll is quite similar to the Monmouth University poll that came out earlier this week, for instance. But what is interesting to me is that Trump's jump is coming disproportionality from non-voters. Normally Trump does considerably better among voters than among adults.
