Heartless Texas Mayor Resigns After Telling Powerless Residents Facing the Freezing Cold That He’s Tired of Them Looking for Handouts
"For some reason, Tim Boyd, who was mayor of Colorado City, Texas, decided that it was a good idea to deliver a typo-ridden, now deleted Facebook postTuesday morning bashing residents who are facing freezing temperatures and massive power outages. Boyd, also known as Satan’s favorite ass pimple, told his constituents that no one owes them anything and that if they want to be warm, they need to find it on their own.
“No one owes you are your [sic] family anything; nor is it the local government’s responsibility to support you during trying times like this! … The City and County, along with power providers or any other service owes you NOTHING!” Dallas News reports.
Except they do. It’s kind of their job to owe the residents something because this is how this whole thing works. It’s an unspoken right (and maybe this has changed in the Trump era) that the one thing a politician, an official who works and is elected by the people, should have is empathy for those who voted them into office. Said elected official is supposed to work on behalf of the people to make this right. But instead of helping people who are fucking freezing without heat or light, Boyd decided that a “Fuck all y’all” post was what the people really needed.
Boyd added that he was “sick and tired” of people looking for handouts and that the current situation is “sadly a product of a socialist government.”
