Charlottesville Vice Mayor Wes Bellamy published several tweets between 2009 and 2014 using gay slurs, comments against white people, lewd slang for female genitalia and other profanities. Many of the old tweets show a stark contrast between his more recent posts lauding women’s and LGBTQ rights. [...] “I DONT LIK WHIT PEOPLE SO I HATE WHITE SNOW!!!!! FML!!!!” he tweeted in Dec. 2009.
Quote from the article: "Charlottesville Vice Mayor Wes Bellamy has been at the forefront of efforts to have the statue [of Robert E. Lee] removed. He said the groups who protested this weekend were simply masking their hatred behind their apparent love of the statue." Bellamy goes on to blame right-wing activists for the death of Heather Heyer, calling them terrorists: "You see exactly what kind of domestic terrorism occurs when people mask their hate behind images and symbols such as this one".
Bellamy has previously stated that he "[doesn't] like white people" and posted that "White women = Devil," along with a host of additional racist and sexist comments which, as one ResistanceMedia Twitter follower noted, would have gotten anyone else fired and run out of town. His employer, Albemarle School District, placed him on administrative leave after the tweets surfaced. On Thursday, August 10, Wes Bellamy responded to a black supremacist blogger who told him to "check out the article I wrote about you on MelanoidNation.org" with "much love."
