Hateful Speech by County Commissioner Barry West

Coffee County Commissioner Barry West (D) posted a comment on his facebook page on Saturday stating “HOW TO WINK AT A MUSLIM” followed by an image of a double-barrel shot gun. This is a hate filled post targeted at Muslims and is not acceptable from anyone, let alone someone holding a public office! Contact Commissioner Barry West and let him know this is NOT acceptable and we demand an apology.

Statement from Coffee County Mayor David Pennington: “As the Mayor of Coffee County I apologize to the Muslim people. I have no control over what the commissioners do outside of public meetings. I personally wouldn’t have done it, I have a great relationship with the Muslim community.”
