Of Course: Virginia Killer Wore Obama Badge During On-Air Election Reports

Posted by on Aug 26, 2015 at 7:14 pm

Obama’s deeply saddened that one of his supporters is dead and called for more law-abiding citizens to be disarmed.

Warped TV reporter Vester Lee Flanagan exasperated bosses with his ‘stiff and nervous’ delivery, his inability to use a teleprompter – and by wearing a President Obama badge during an election report, Daily Mail Online can reveal.

Management at WDBJ dubbed the failed newsman the ‘human tape recorder’ because he frequently parroted what interviewees had told him rather than doing his own journalism.

Flanagan, 41, clashed repeatedly with photojournalists, belittling them in public and intimidating them with his violent temper, according to internal reports.

He was also censured for wearing an Obama sticker while recording a segment at a polling booth during the 2012 US Presidential Election – a clear breach of journalistic impartiality.

Guess that spurred one of his many charges of racism.

The station filed the documents to rebutt a wrongful termination claim which he had brought, claiming he was the victim of discrimination because he was black and gay. The station won the case.

Flanagan earned a dismal 1 out of 5 score in several categories for his poor communication skills and a failure to show respect to colleagues.

The veteran multimedia journalist was also criticized for missing deadlines and producing reports that were ‘lean on facts’ and left viewers confused.

So thanks to his incompetence and obvious racism, this Obama fan murdered two people on live television. We need to take down this flag.

    Nothing to see here folks, move on, nothing to see. Just a case of work place violence. As much as I think the gun grabbers are on to something here, I can’t support more “common sense” gun control laws. I think what the gungrabbers are advocating is that one’s right to own a firearm may be mitigated if one has a history of playing the race card or if one is part of the Gaystapo. Along those lines, why isn’t anyone talking about what Kerry did at the UN yesterday signing on to the small arms treaty.

    The delusion of the Democrat party, and the perfect storm of confusion for an illiberal media, personified. If we can just get it to a point where it ceases killing people, conservatism will have succeeded. Godless, but not bulletless, are incompatible.

    Dang. No wonder all the reports last night were about the victims. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, but this guy is about as polar opposite from the Tea Party caricature they are always salivating to blame. And untouchable as could be: Black Lives Matter fan, Obama supporter, and gay too? That’s like Teflon to the media narrative.

    Obama owns this one. Six and a half years of stirring up racial hate has brought us to where we are today.

    As others have said, what I like best about the Obama era is all the racial healing.

    Shooter claimed that Jehovah told him to kill. Jehovah used to do that a lot in the old testament, telling the Jews to wipe out whole cities except for the virgin girls who could be kept as sex slaves. Sort of like ISIS says Allah is telling them to do
