Remember Rod Hart? He’s the Greenfield Dad who used his 10 year old adopted black child as a pawn in order to attack and brand his police officer neighbor as a racist because he had a confederate flag buried deep within his garage:
He’s also a middle school teacher in Northampton, who often posts inappropriate pictures on Facebook, such as this one of himself simulating sexual acts upon a John Cena cutout IN HIS CLASSROOM:
He also posted this meme to describe his feelings towards his students:
And perhaps most importantly he posted this picture, in which he illustrated his own intolerance towards people who believe in God and practice religion:
Throwing religion in the trash. This is OK because atheism is one of the protected classes of social justice warriors. We only bring this up because Rod Hart has recently been appointed to the Greenfield Human Rights Commission!!! Ya got that? Someone who posts pictures shitting on and mocking the billions of people who believe in Christianity, Judaism, and Islam, is now serving on a “Human Rights Commission.” That’s like a Holocaust denier being appointed to the Centre For Jewish Affairs.
And the really insane part is that many people in Greenfield on the Human Rights Commission are cool with it, according to the Greenfield Recorder:
The chairman of the Human Rights Commission is looking forward to working with the panel’s newest member, a man who was at the heart of controversy over a Confederate flag that occupied much of the commission’s time over the past year. The mayor’s appointment of Rod Hart of Shelburne Road triggered opposition and questions about his vetting process for town committee appointees, but Hart’s appointment withstood a veto attempt by some town councilors last week.
Some councilors expressed concern about a Facebook post allegedly made by Hart that they found offensive. Hart’s appointment withstood a 5-6 vote last Wednesday. Nine negative votes were needed to nix the mayor’s appointment. Some councilors questioned whether Hart was fit for the position after it was reported by a third-party blogger that he had made a Facebook post last November showing a figure throwing religious symbols in a trash can. Hart, who is on vacation, could not be reached for comment this week.
Oh look, another media outlet who is too afraid to say the name “Turtleboy.” Too afraid to admit that we break the news. Because rags like the Greenfield Recorder would have ignored posts like this:
Philippe Simon, chairman of the Human Rights Commission, said he doesn’t see the alleged post being problematic and is looking forward to working with Hart.
“When I studied the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights, it said people have the right to profess their opinion, their religion and their beliefs,” he said. “There is nothing inconsistent with Human Rights with someone expressing how they feel about religion.”
Oh OK. So this guy doesn’t have a problem with Rod Hart shitting on people who are religious, because the Declaration of Human Rights says that people have a right to profess their opinions. So then can someone who openly shits on black people be allowed on the commission? After all, they’re just expressing how they feel about a race!! Oh that’s right, religious people are fair game to be shit on and and discriminated against. Because……tolerance!!!
Of course Philippe Simon, the head of the Human Rights Commission, is also a 9/11 truther:
And lots of 9/11 truthers believe that the September 11 attacks were a Jewish conspiracy. So it’s not really surprising that he wouldn’t mind having someone on his commission that thinks Jewish people are such a problem. Because……human rights!!!
During last week’s Town Council meeting, Precinct 4 Councilor Wanda Muzyka-Pyfrom said it would be hypocritical for the council to approve Hart’s appointment after recently passing a Resolution of Respect, which states the town will do its best to combat prejudice. Other councilors said they did not favor the appointment because they wanted to ask Hart about the post, and he was not at the meeting that night. Some pointed out that the post may not be a symbol of intolerance at all.
“(It) could also be perceived as a message of let’s not look for labels that divide us, let’s be aware of everything that unites us,” At-Large Councilor Mark Maloni said.
LOL. So now they’re making up excuses for Rod Hart, since Rod Hart wasn’t there to make up excuses for himself. Gotta love it. If Rod Hart had posted a picture of himself throwing black people in the trash, he would never be allowed on this commission. And he certainly wouldn’t have other people on the City Council going out of their way to explain how this is a “message of let’s not look for labels that divide us“:
Because I know that when I see someone throwing a crucifix and the Star of David in the trash, the first thing I think is, “let’s not be divided.”
Council Treasurer Karen “Rudy” Renaud added it’s possible that Hart is an atheist, and if so, that perspective is important to include on the Human Rights Commission. She said that to her knowledge, Hart would be the only openly gay man to serve on the commission and added she finds it miraculous that he’s still willing to volunteer after receiving so much hateful backlash on the Internet after the so-called Confederate flag controversy.
HAHAHAHHAHAHA!!! So Rod Hart is the victim now!!! He’s the one who received the “hateful backlash.” This is a guy who started an online crusade against his neighbor and labeled him as another racist cop because he had a historical relic hidden deep within his garage. But it’s cool, because Rod Hart is gay. And gay people, just like atheists, are a protected class of the social justice warriors.
Late last fall, Hart and his husband took to social media to voice concern that their neighbor — Greenfield Police Sgt. Daniel McCarthy, who is also the police department’s liaison to the Human Rights Commission — had a confederate flag inside his garage that was visible from the street when the door was open. The couple wrote their 10-year-old black son expressed fear at seeing the flag.
Their son did not express fear. They just said he did because they were using him. Remember, this is a guy who claims that his son “Asked Santa to bring him white skin … so he won’t get shot” when he leaves home. Obviously their 10 year old kid did not do this. Obviously.
Renaud said after the controversy went public, information about Hart began appearing on hate sites, including some of the same ones that she and At-Large Councilor Penny Ricketts have appeared on. Ricketts is the only black town councilor and Renaud is gay.
“It’s actual real hate, and I want someone who’s experienced that, besides just Penny, to be on the Human Rights Commission,” she said, adding she thinks it’s understandable if Hart harbors some negative feelings toward religion.
“Please consider also how hurtful religion has been to LGBT people,” she said. “… You have religious leaders throughout the years who continue to say we’re not God’s children and there’s a special place in hell for us, so I think I can forgive Rod Hart if he has a little animosity toward religion, but I also think he’s a school teacher, he’s a citizen of this town, after he’s been so horribly abused on the internet he’s still willing to put himself forward, and I think we owe it to him to vote for this appointment tonight.”
Oh I see. So it’s OK to shit on people who are religious, but only if you’re gay. Because the catholic church, which has allowed closeted gay men to become priests for centuries, is evil.
Gotta love how she says that he is “horribly abused.” The man is an awful human being, who brought criticism upon himself by going to the media about his neighbor’s flag, instead of just being a normal person and talking to his neighbor directly about it. Oh yea, and his husband assaulted his son’s teacher a couple months ago and the cops were called to the school.
But Rod and his husband are the victims here. Because Turtleboy called them out on their bullshit. Welcome to SJW Logic 101.
