Weatherman Forced To Resign After Posting Message About Mothers of ‘Slain Thugs’ at DNC


If you watched the DNC, you would be furious, they paraded the mothers whose children died in police-related shootings onstage. They pandered to the wrong

Bob Goosman resigned from his job as a weatherman after posting this message…

From The Blaze:



By Friday, KRLD-AM’s chief meteorologist had resigned.

Goosmann offered an explanation in a comment on dallasnews.com, emphasizing he meant no disrespect to the mothers onstage nor to their children.

“I was angry that the DNC used these mothers to garner votes, and that was it,” he wrote.

Regarding his use of the term “thugs,” Goosmann said he wasn’t aware it carried racial overtones for some.

“I thought a thug was just a violent person. The definition of thug does not mention any race,” he noted in his post. “I will say I talked with an African American acquaintance and he told me that he feels like when he hears the word, it is in reference to an African American individual. I had NO IDEA.”

Goosmann confirmed his resignation as well but said he would’ve been fired “and rightly so.”

 “What I say online, no matter where, reflects upon my station and employer. KRLD is a great station, providing invaluable information to all listeners, and I am sorry if they have had to deal with all the repercussions,” he wrote.

Regarding reaction he received that “some of the individuals that lost their lives were not violent criminals,” Goosmann explained that he was “angry” when he posted and did so “without completely researching all involved.”

Well I am sure he is now job hunting, and saving his butt by softening up, but he was correct. The DNC was a disgusting display of morally corrupt people.
