VP of Software Firm is Fired After Posting Image of Obama in a Noose

The vice president of a software company was terminated after a he posted a racist meme showing former president Barack Obama with a noose around his neck.

Screenshots shared on social media this weekend allege that the image was posted by Gary Casper, identified as vice president for information technology at Chattanooga-based Transcard.

The picture of Obama includes the caption “#PayPerView.” Casper’s Facebook profile listed his position as vice president of IT at the software company, as well as previous IT roles at US Xpress, according to the screen grabs.

Threatening to harm or kill a former president is considered a felony with a penalty of up to five years in prison.

On Sunday afternoon, Transcard president Chris Fuller sent a statement the Times Free Press saying the company does not allow its employees to make political statements on social media.

“As soon as Transcard realized that an employee was utilizing social media to engage in political speech, it took immediate action to terminate its relationship with such person,” Fuller wrote in the email.

Earlier on Sunday, Transcard posted to Facebook that “views reflected in posts made by individuals do not reflect the views or values of Transcard.”

Transcard is a third-party payment account software company that has between 90 and 100 employees, and had around 1,800 clients, according to Times Free Press reporting at the time.

We have to hold him accountable and others who make such threats. Kathy Griffith should have been jailed. Showing Obama and Bush as monkeys is one thing (Bush does resemble a chimp) but showing living presidents murdered deserves jail time. Start prosecuting those who do such things.

THE BULL CRAP NEEDS TO STOP, HOWEVER 45 MAKES A POINT TO DISCREDIT SOMEONE EVERY DAY. REPORTERS CAN’T ASK A QUESTION WITHOUT BEING TREATED LIKE A CRIMINAL. 45 NEEDS TO SET THE TONE OF THE COUNTRY. STOP GIVING AID TO THE CITIES HE LIKE BUT NOT HELPING THE CITIES HE DISAGREE WITH. PEOPLE LOST THEIR LIVES DUE TO THE PANDEMIC, CAN WE HEAR ENCOURAGING WORDS, INSTEAD WE ALWAYS GET NEGATIVE VIBES. WHERE IN AN AMERICAN CRISIS CAN WE ALL ACT AS ADULTS.

“WE?” Keith Brown you are a Freaking Idiot! Obviously you have never opened a Bible or read anything about the genealogy of Jesus Christ! I guess it wouldn’t matter to anyone that doesn’t believe in the Word like the Heathen you appear to be. What I love most is knowing that all of you morons that don’t believe in Heaven and Hell will wake up in your appropriate place after death!

Guido, which version of the Bible do you read? You profess to know about Jesus Christ and you say that you know the word, yet you are attacking a person that you do not know instead of showing him the love and understanding that Jesus would have shown him. You are condemning him to hell instead of showing compassion like Jesus would have done. You judge him but the Bible says that only God can judge man. I am not a Christian nor do I belong to any particular faith but I have read and studied the Bible and I do know that it doesn’t belong to man to direct his own steps. So maybe it would be nice if you tried to teach him and try to direct him toward God in the compassionate way that Jesus would have done.

Guido what bible are you reading? If you study GENESIS ch 10 you would know that all CAUCASIAN race…Romans, Greeks, germans, Italians, Celtic, ashkenazi all came from JAPHETH.
The 12 tribes of Israel AND CHRIST came from the BLOODLINE of SHEM AND WAS MISTAKEN FOR THE DESCENDANTS OF HAM ALL THROUGH THE BIBLE. YOUR BIBLE CLEARLY SAYS WHITES…ALL DESCENDANTS OF JAPHETH ARE GENTILES.
HAM IS THE PROGENITOR OF ALL DARK RACES EXCEPT THE NEGROES, WHO ARE DESCENDANTS OF THE TRIBE OF JUDAH (SHEM) JUST LIKE YOUR BIBLE SAYS CHRIST IS.
HAM MEANS BURNT…(BLACK) AND THE EGYPTIANS ARE FROM HAM ALONG WITH ETHIOPIANS WHICH PROVES THEY WERE BLACK. ALL HEBREWS FROM THE BLOODLINE OF SHEM WERE MISTAKEN FOR EGYPTIANS ALL THE TIME…WHICH IS WHY MOSES, JOSEPH, AND APOSTLE PAUL WERE THOUGHT TO BE EGYPTIANS AND HOW CHRIST, MARY, AND JOSEPH WERE ABLE TO HIDE IN EGYPT.

NOT ONE PATRIARCH IN THE BIBLE WAS WHITE….NOT ONE. WHITES COME FROM A TOTALLY DIFFERENT BLOODLINE THAN CHRIST DID OR ANY OF THE PATRIARCHS AND YOUR BIBLE IS CLEAR ON THAT.

IT’S TIME FOR PEOPLE TO START TELLING THE TRUTH INSTEAD OF THE LIES HOLLYWOOD AND THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH TOLD. THE WHITE JESUS IMAGE IS CAESAR BORGIA AND THAT LIE MUST BE DESTROYED.

You don’t have to believe me…just read GENESIS ch 10 and Google who and where are the descendants of HAM, JAPHETH, and SHEM. You’ll also realize that the ashkenazi that are in Israel not only didn’t come from the BLOODLINE of SHEM like Abraham, BUT THAT THEY CALL THEMSELVES JEWS WHEN 1. GENESIS CH 10 SAYS THAT THEY ARE GENTILES FROM THE BLOODLINE OF JAPHETH. 2. JEW IS SHORT FOR JUDAH, AND NEGROES ARE THE TRIBE OF JUDAH SO THAT IS A LIE. 3. THE BOOK OF REVELATION CLEARLY SAYS THAT THEY CALL THEMSELVES JEWS BUT ARE NOT.

I PRAY EVERYONE ACTUALLY STUDIES SO THAT THESE LIES CAN END.

Sadly, Guido, you demonstrate precisely why people’s perceptions of Jesus, God, Faith, Heaven and Hell are painfully distorted, contorted and exploited. The book you’re reading from would do best to go out of print.
