Dem Resigns Over Controversial Comments About Christmas Parade Tragedy

In Illinois, the social media director of the Democratic Party of DuPage County resigned following controversial comments she made using the Kyle Rittenhouse acquittal to mock the tragedy at the Christmas Parade in Waukesha, Wisconsin.

As of Tuesday, Mary Lemanski had also deleted her Twitter account entirely. Previously, Lemanski had posted an article about a driver who plowed an SUV into a Christmas parade, killing multiple people and injuring dozens more, along with the caption, “It was probably just self-defense.”

Evidently, Lemanski was using the tragedy to mock Rittenhouse’s self-defense argument.

“Living in Wisconsin, he probably felt threatened,” Lemanski reportedly wrote in a separate post. According to Fox News, Lemanski describes herself as a student with the famed Second City comedy institution.

“The blood of Kyle Rittenhouse’s victims is on the hands of Wisconsin citizens, even the children,” she wrote.

“You reap what you sow, Wisconsin,” she tweeted.

Fox News saved screenshots of the tweets before Lemanski deleted her account.

The DuPage Democrats wrote a statement on their Twitter page regarding the matter.

“We are deeply saddened by the tragedy in Waukesha,” they wrote. “We are aware of statements made by a former member of our organization and find them to be incredibly insensitive and not in alignment of who we are as an organization.”

“Our organization does not support hate in any form,” they added.

Mother’s custody of son revoked until she’s vaccinated, judge rules

Cook County, Illinois Judge James Shapiro reportedly revoked a mother’s custody of her son because she hasn’t received a COVID-19 vaccine.

Shapiro asked Rebecca Firlit if she’d received a COVID-19 vaccination, and she said that she hadn’t because of adverse reactions to previous vaccines. Shapiro then ruled that Firlit couldn’t see her 11-year-old son until she’d been inoculated.

The judge awarded custody to Firlit’s fully-vaccinated ex-husband.

“I was confused because it was just supposed to be about expenses and child support,” Firlit said. “I asked him what it had to do with the hearing, and he said, ‘I am the judge, and I make the decisions for your case.'”

“In this case, you have a judge, without any matter before him regarding the parenting time with the child deciding ‘Oh, you’re not vaccinated. You don’t get to see your child until you are vaccinated.’ That kind of exceeds his jurisdiction,” Firlit’s attorney, Annette Fernholz, said.
