Dem staffer posts pro-Hamas messages and pics on Facebook, promptly deletes

A state Democratic operative and staffer for U.S. Rep. Nick Rahall (D-WV) posted some over-the-top anti-Semite photos and messages on his Facebook account, which were quickly picked up, screen-capped, and tweeted by conservative activist Holly Fisher.

Within four hours the staffer, Collin Peterson, realized the error of his ways and deleted not just the posts but his entire Facebook account. Oops, the Internet is forever.

Peterson’s post included a photo of himself wearing a keffiyeh and holding what appears to be an AK-47, with the message:

All who wear the keffiyeh, wherever they are in the world, whatever nation they call home, regardless of race, religion, nationality or ethnicity, they shall be regarded as sons and daughters of Palestine.

Er, he may want to rethink that “religion” thing–especially if traveling around the northern regions of Syria and Iraq. One could lose his head over it.

Fisher picked it up and tweeted:

That “CAIR” reference with respect to Peterson’s boss reflects the fact that Rahall is of Lebanese descent and has spoken out against Israel in the past. However, Peterson is a field organizer for the West Virginia Democratic Party.

The people of West Virginia may have slightly different leanings on the subject of terrorist organizations. He deleted his account–too late. Fisher noticed and tweeted:

Mer message garnered quite a few replies, including:

Then there’s this–something I’m finding more and more truthful.
